Hi, dear readers, HouseDetectives is here again! 

Probably that is not the typical article we use to write and you use to expect from us. Maybe it is only a reflection about the character, but as we explained to you in our first article, being a detective is a job about investigation, studies and analysis too. We see the events, we study the events, we give you our personal point of view and YOU take the part you want. As always we want you to be part of this crazy project we started months ago. So, please, comment after reading and share it with your friends. We want to know what you think, we love always your opinions, we write our articles for you, for this fantastic fandom which was created around, in our opinion, the best series of the actual history of television. So, in advance, thank you very much, because if you wouldn´t exist, if you wouldn´t be there, we wouldn´t had never started this project.
If you want, if you have time, if you like squeezing your brain as the typical House´s style, please you can read again some of our previous articles: Happiness, pain, guilt and punishment, Big Event in the House, Why add an new character to House? Brother Mycroft, Is it all in House´s head? and House´s Final Puzzle.
Before to start with the real issue that bring us today here, I want you to know that I am literally in tears while writting this "maybe" our last puzzle. I feel my heart "shrunk". When I came this morning to the blog and I see our countdown, I feel as a real friend will be gone in less than I will be ready to say goodbye to him. Last week, things of "real" job made my "real" life a bit hard. But when at nights I arrived home and checked on twitter to see what brought that day in House´s land, I felt better. Maybe it is only an illusion but it helped me, and I know this shared "hobby" that have all who are reading this article is something we never forget. So, please, enjoy those two last episodes!
When your day is long and the night. The night is yours alone.
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes
Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on
Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone
If you're on your own in this life. The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on
Well, everybody hurts sometimes. Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes. And everybody hurts sometimes
So, hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on. (Hold on, hold on)
Everybody hurts. You are not alone.

And now, I want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH, to a special person, who always help us in this mission of HouseDetectives. Last week we had her as our reporter. Now you can find her as TheHouseMDProject, before as HouseDailyDose. Do you know what? when this series reaches its end inevitably, we will still have a page where we can remember the greatness that House supposed to our lives here: [H]ouseMD So, go there, check it and share your own feelings with the rest of the fandom.

We wrote our last article before the beginning of the called "House´s arc": The case of the Red Herrings. Lots of things we learned after that. Now we are at the end of the journey, the case is now solved. But, what do we really know about it? Lately actors, writers and the creator himself, are talking about the end as something we really don´t expect, but something we will be happy with. For us in HouseDetectives there are still many questions to be answer but only two episodes for it.


So it was the same for us. House never was a medical series. Since those two minutes at the end of "Body and Soul", the series took an unexpected way for some, not for all in the fandom, of course, it was something that could be happen in House´s life that his "only" real friend, maybe, the only person he can trust now, disappear and he (House) would have to "rethink" his entire life. In HouseDetectives, we have the feeling that since that moment many of the images we are seeing in the episodes or in spoiler are related with moments we just saw in this series, but now from another point of view or with another result.


Ok, we know it. It is the same question we ask ourselves over and over again since the first time we learned House could have hallucinations. But we can´t help it, we need to  go back there again. But, what could be the reason? Coma, schizophrenia, drugs...

In HouseDetectives we never think coincidences exist, but, who knows. Two images really similar, two circunstances really similar, and House wearing the same clothes. Is Wilson the one who is sick?
The medical case in each one of the episodes show parallelisms between House and the POTW til the point to see in that patient House himself. We even could affirm House always is the real POTW. So, probably House could suffer a mental illness, may be temporary or not, we don´t know. We just studied in depth that scenario time ago: Is it all in House´s head?. Now things have evolved but the idea is still alive in our minds. So, if House is now simply hallucinating Wilson´s cancer? Or...if Wilson only exist in House´s head? Oh, in our first theory House had an injured brain. He believes he is Sherlock and Sherlock has a partner. If the partner of Sherlock is Watson, the partner of House must be Wilson. As always, dear readers, that is not something we believe, that is something we reach after searching for clues and trying to solve our own puzzles. 
We know the last POTW will be a drug patient and House will be forced to examine his own life and confront his personal demons. Maybe he only will see a mirror of himself in the patient. But if HE is the real POTW it could be the time in which will be a before and after in House´s mental state.
Well, ok, all of this is just too boring, we talked a lot in the past about it, so now, we are going further in this. Since when do we belive is House in that sick mental state? Well, it may sounds presumptuous and no substantied, but it is something that is drilling into my mind for some time ago...
We always hear about House being like a child. Yes, his behavior is often like the one of a little guy, and usually he is compared with a child. The thing is last year we listen lot of times the comparision with a ten years old boy and this year with an eleven years old. Maybe it is something, but metaphorically it is possible to think about this number as the clue here, why not?
Is that the time when House started working at PPTH? 
We also know Wilson was working in PPTH because House called him when there was a free vacant as oncologist, and he accepted it because he knew his schizophrenic brother was in some place near Princeton. (The social contract)
House: You told me you saw your brother once. After he disappeared.

Wilson: 13 years ago. I used to go to Princeton whenever I could. I must have hit every homeless shelter in town. And then one day, I’m just sitting at this deli, having a sandwich, I look out the window, and there he is. He was gone by the time I got outside.
House:That's why you were so eager when I told you there was a job at Princeton. I thought it was just my charm.
House: I think you were punishing yourself. I think you wanted to feel what it would be like be homeless in a New Jersey winter. That tells me, guilt. That tells me, something happened.
Wilson: The schizophrenia started when he was a teenager. When he was in college… He was on meds, but he'd still think a professor was out to get him because he got a B, or he'd fight with his roommates because he never showered.
House: Where were you?
Wilson:Med school. He, called me, every day. Talked for hours. I didn't have hours.
House: Interesting. Later for that. Go on.
Wilson: I was tired of being the guy that everybody counted on, so one night, Danny called — One night, Danny called, crying, upset about something. I had to study for an exam. So I — I hung up… Took my things. I went to the library so I wouldn't have to hear the phone ring.
House: I wonder how that turned out?
Wilson: My mother called me the next day. Danny had run away and left his meds behind. Which I knew meant that he would never be able to choose to come back, because he'd be so detached from reality.
House: So you made your one effort to live a normal, selfish life, and the universe immediately smacked you down. And because we're wired to find meaning in semi-random events, you decided never to be that careless again.

Is it possible that House may be Wilson´s schizophrenic brother? 
Is it possible that he thinks he is Sherlock and his brother is Watson?

Schizophrenia: is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of thought processes and by poor emotional responsiveness. It most commonly manifests itself as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking, and it is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction. The onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with a global lifetime prevalence of about 0.3–0.7%. Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the patient's reported experiences. 
...but I prayed, now it´s all gone away,
no more voices, no more delusion, no more craziness,
no more confussion...

Could it be this twist viewers never expected but "fitting" it all?


This is something in our head from time ago, but more when we learned the title of that episode "Post Mortem". What does it happen if all of them are in a waiting room? For whatever they are waiting for. It could be link perfectly with the title of the finale "Everybody dies"
In "Recession Proof" we saw House totally devasted after losing a patient. He thought that his happiness made he a worse doctor and people would die because of that. We know that in this last episode House will have to rethink his entire life and it will be the beginning of his future. At this point we believe probably House will learn that all people die, it doesn´t matter if House is happy or not, people will die anyway. 
Because "where we find the life, we find the death".
In this episode we know Kutner will appear, oh, wait, if Kutner is dead, it could only be as an hallucination (that could be work with our Scenario 1) or maybe at one of those who just left the waiting room and crossed over, why not? It is possible he is in the other side of the door and help Wilson to cross the line.
We also know 13 is comming back and she and Foreman will act as meddler between House and Wilson. The previews of the episode make us understand that Wilson doesn´t want to keep treating himself for the cancer, he wants to live as well as possible til the inevitable final. We remember when House promised to 13 that when the time will come he will help to die. 13 is sick, Wilson is sick. House needs to understand it and respect what his friend want for his latest months of life. Again the WAITING ROOM here. Everybody has the right to decide about their finale here.
Maybe is House the one who is in this WAITING ROOM. Maybe he is the one who needs to cross the line. We know about at least four times that House was near to death, maybe he is a coma state (again this could work with the first scenario) and he needs a hand (Kutner) to pass throw it. 
Again here, two scenes that reminds a similar moment. One from "After Hours", after House self surgery, the other from "Everybody Dies", penultimate episode of this series. It really seems they are waiting for something. Both images are from people worried about House, so What are waiting Foreman and Wilson there?

We already talked about this possibility in our article "House´s Final Puzzle". We seriously believe it as a real one. Based on Sherlock Holmes, we think House could make this decision and start a new life wherever he want.
This pic reminds us "Help me", it is something inevitable not to think about that scene of House and Hanna under that collapsed building. Do you think is it possible there will be a new collapse? What if House now decide to not show again, to fake his own death and start again? We learned that House can´t leave the state, but if he is dead, he could do whatever he wanted. After "Help me" he was so near to the "hecatomb" but then Cuddy made her magical appearance and "saved" his life. But later in "Bombshells" this "hecatomb" made again his way to catch House and this time reached him. Maybe now is time to House for a "Second chance".


We really think the next one could be the last of scene of this fantastic series. And ALL the scenarios we already brought here could work with it.
- Wilson finding his schizophrenic brother waiting at the door of his house, after he left PPTH again.
- Wilson finding his friend who was there waiting for supporting him in his latest moths of life, ready for being with him.
- Wilson finding House alive after thinking he was already dead, discovering that was only a plan, discovering that House just faked his death.
