    hmm, so House committed 1st degree murder? If he switched the dental records before hand then it sounds that way.

    Why do you assume it happened beforehand?

    In fact, what almost certainly happened was that House used his ID badge to get back into the hospital after his "death," swapped out the dental records, then left his ID badge under the wobbing table in Foreman's office before leaving the hospital for good. Foreman then found the ID badge there later, leading him to realize that House was still alive.

    I don't think House killed the guy. He was terminal. He may have OD'd on heroin as suicide. And House knew he would be dead soon, so he could have switched the dental records in anticipation.

    I got the impression that Wilson left House's ID badge under Foreman's wobbly table, simply because House would be on video surveillance all over the hospital after his death and he's too smart for that.

    I also got the impression that he switched the dental records before the guy died, but didn't kill him. I got the same feeling tiams did in his explanation above.

    You've gotten high on heroin and survived being trapped in a burning building so you manage to get to the hospital (how far away?) and swap dental records unnoticed? This makes it seems to me at least that the records were switched before.

    Also, why would that hospital have the guy's dental records anyway?

    If House did any premeditation on the events he doesnt need to actually "pull the trigger" to be convicted of first degree.

    Again, too many unexplained situations to be sure but it's a shame they open it up to seem to allow this scenario.

    What about it? All I have heard that she was not in the finale because she had a falling out with the producers(?).

    I loved Robert's (Wilson) reaction when he accidentally went full auto with his paintball gun. :p

    I wish they continued filming the set teardown, that would've been fun to watch. I also wish they showed the entire stage and how they linked together and such.

    I wonder if 10+ years in the future whatever is filmed there will be tearing down and wonder where a stray paintball splat came from. Or maybe there's a splat on the rafters...

    I enjoyed the finale. And if anyone saw my question, the article that was linked earlier explained it. The patient had cigarette burns on his chest from nodding off with a lit cigarette (and presumably that is what set the building on fire). The burns were not a direct effect of the heroin.

    I think the patient/addict agreed to help house - swapping dental records and such. He knew he was dying and he had already offered to take the fall for House's vandalism charge.

    didnt he surmise they were cigarette burns from the patient falling asleep with cigs in his mouth?

    I was I guess one of the 5 people that liked the finale. Other people I asked IRL also liked it. Sure there was some suspension of disbelief happening, but the entire show is one big suspension of disbelief that House gets away with all he gets away with =P I thought it was a fitting way to have him not be a doctor anymore and bring back past cast members.

    I thought it was implied that he was in the building to score drugs, by the way - hence Foreman and Wilson meeting with the therapist.

    Did you just watch it recently?

    Perhaps it was the hype leading up to the finale?
