Indeed House has been through a lot over the years, but, I asked Jacobs, has he been changed by those experiences? “He’s been through a lot, but I am not sure people change. However, I think they can, through experience, recognize their fears or their Achilles’ heals and overcome them or, reach beyond what they thought was possible for themselves. But, by and large, I don’t think House changes. I think that at its best, House will sort of understand himself better, and understanding himself better, maybe make choices that serve him in whatever it is he wants out of life. It’s up to him now. What does he choose?”
House airs Monday night with “After Hours,” and I will have a preview article up for this season’s penultimate episode sometime over the weekend.
