House season 8 comes to an end next week with episode 22, “Everybody Dies,” and it is also the series finale for the Fox medical drama. The title is certainly ominous, and the promo out doesn’t do anything to reassure you.
House Season 8 Episode 22 “Everybody Dies” Promo
“The special two-hour HOUSE Series Finale event kicks off with a one-hour retrospective special that will look back at this groundbreaking, seminal series and feature interviews with the series’ stars and producers, special original content and other surprises. Then, in the emotional series finale, directed by series creator and executive producer David Shore, treating a drug addict patient (guest star James LeGros, ‘Mildred Pierce’) results in House examining his life, his future and his own personal demons.”
The first hour next Monday is “Swan Song,” the retrospective, which is bound to be something fans can enjoy, especially those who have been watching since the beginning and have stuck with the show. It may also serve as the perfect introduction to the series finale for those who may have stopped watching but are coming back for the last episode.
Then comes the second hour, the final one of the drama. The House series finale promo for season 8 episode 22 “Everybody Dies” (below) is pretty much perfect, from the song (“Live Forever” by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors) to the question it poses: How will it end? The promo doesn’t reveal much about what’s coming up but it does show House falling through the floor and offers a look at the patient of the week as well. How is this going to end for House? Is it going to end with him back behind bars after what happened in episode 21, “Holding On”?
It’s a sad promo, but what else would you expect from this show? It looks like fans should be prepared for an emotional two hours, which is exactly what you would expect as a show that’s been on for eight years prepares to say goodbye.
