I dread to see it too, I just know it will be far from uplifting or hopeful. I know that this was never a fairy tale, but it didn't use to be such a dark show with such cynical characters who can't sustain meaningful relationships.
I don't need a "happy" ending per se--I mean, it would be nice, but I'm not expecting it. I'd like to see something that, at least, tilts in a hopeful direction. For instance, House going back to see Dr. Nolan. Or something like the end of "Half-Wit," where House hesitates before joining his team at a bar. We never found out what happened there, just that for once he was making a choice not be alone and miserable. That would be nice to see again.
I really hope they don't kill House; however, even worse for me would be an "It was all a hallucination" ending.

I too hope it will have a hopeful, if bittersweet ending. Some have predicted a sherlock holmes type finale, wherein House would fake his own death, and maybe only Wilson would know about it or be able to figure out what happened, thus allowing him to leave PPTH and start over somewhere else doing who knows what.
I really don't want an actual death, though. But as a tragic hero, that may be his fate. A theme I've picked up on this season -- and it was very prominent in the "Chase" episode -- is House being more open, more supportive of individual team members so they will be happier, or at least less miserable than him in the process. I think for every team member as well as Foreman he's done something that's caring, trying to get them to see truths about their lives--in a Housian way. So it seems that the writers are building a theme of House passing on not just his medical philosophy, but trying to get his team to make the right choices so they will have happier lives, since he is convinced he can't have that himself. That to me is very bittersweet, that he continues to be full of such self-loathing, and it may be that his only peace in the finale will come with knowing that he taught others not to be like him.

Maybe I could fall in "like" with it again.
Echo this. Except my expectations may be even lower. Having just watched "Love Is Blind", or attempted to, since I find myself reading, doing puzzles on my cellphone, or virtually anything else during House episodes these days - I seem to only be watching out of nostalgia for what the show once was. Initially, I hoped Shore and company could summon up some vestiges of their former creativity to give us a series end that might barely approach the glory days of "Three Stories" or "House's Head"/"Wilson's Heart".
At this point, though, I'm only hoping they don't embarass themselves and leaving a bad enough taste in the mouth to make watching re-runs of early seasons impossible.
