What we know off-screen always shapes how we watch, and tonight's season finale of House is sure to resonate in a different way because we know that Lisa Edelstein hasn't renewed her contract for next season and won't be returning as Cuddy. I can't say I'm sorry.

Nothing against Edelstein, and I don't blame her for not wanting her salary cut (along with some others on the show), reportedly the reason behind the decison. But the endless back-and-forth in the House-Cuddy romance was tiresome.

Tonight's finale was filmed before the producers were certain the show itself would be back, never mind Cuddy, so I'm guessing they devised some all-purpose cliffhanger. What I know is that House seems to be recovering extremely fast from performing surgery on his own leg in his bathtub (yeah, not a good idea). And the guest is the terrific Shohreh Aghdashloo, as a performance artist who may have a hidden agenda about House. That gives him plenty of opportunities to make fun of conceptual pieces, like - his words - "shaving your body in public while wearing a monkey mask."

Here's the trailer. You can fnd more clips at The House of Fan.

    of course you can blame Lisa. she's not the writer! And neither Lisa or producers announced the real reason of her departure.

    I'm not sorry either, I won't miss her at all. They ruined her character too much for that. Can't wait for the finale and season 8!
