Aghhhh, Wilson is still sick. And Thirteen is very, very important.
Question: Any chance House will pull another miracle out of his hat and save Wilson on House? —Rebecca
Ausiello: As the look on GHo’s face at the conclusion of Monday’s episode all but confirmed, that ship has sailed. House’s priority now is prolonging his BFF’s life — an arduous task that dominates much of next week’s unbelievably moving hour. A key component of the mission involves Greek‘s Jacob “Rusty” Zachar, who makes a surprise cameo as someone from Wilson’s past. Other scoopy highlights from the penultimate ep: Olivia Wilde’s Thirteen appears in two quietly effective scenes (one with House, the other with Wilson); another Princeton-Plainsboro vet appears posed to follow Chase out the door; House’s cane plays a critical role; and prepare for a twist ending that harkens back to something series creator David Shore told me last May shortly after House drove his car into Cuddy’s House: “We feel strongly on the show that actions have consequences.”
Twist ending? Please, please House writers, don’t go the “it’s all a dream/hallucination” route! Who is following Chase out the door? Maybe it’s House himself, after Wilson dies. The actor playing “someone from Wilson’s past” looks too young to play his brother (he was born in 1986), but his son, maybe? If Wilson had a kid he didn’t know about in high school or college.
