The writers stuck with the original ending they had since season 1 - the kids are still clearly the same age as they were in the pilot. In season 1, it would have made sense for Ted to go after Robin because he was still so in love with her. 

I’m not saying I’m not feeling … more than slightly betrayed by this move but the ending seemed to be set in stone. And up until Robin received her wedding present, Ted was convinced he was still in love with her. And I think he was a bit. 

But I wanted more time with the Mother (Tracy). I very much do think that she was the love of his life. I just think the way they handled the ending was a poor way to go about it. 

This entire season took place over a weekend. If they had spent half the season at the wedding - or 3/4 at the max, that would have been enough. The plot lines that were introduced and resolved in the last two episodes would have been much more intriguing than the filler episodes they had. 

Also, when you have an entire season revolving around a pairing’s wedding only to break them up in the penultimate episode? Not fair at all. You can’t just expect us to accept that.

We spent nine years invested in these characters. We care about what happens to them and how it affects them. Barney would have thrown himself even further into his shenanigans - which they briefly addressed through the Perfect Month.* But could you imagine what his reaction would have been when he first received the news. Robin threw herself into her work - I want to see a montage of her being a focused reporter all over the world.

Also, I fell in love with the Mother, in what little we knew about her. I wanted to see more of Ted and Tracy’s interactions. I wanted to see how the Mother getting sick affected Ted - he planned to spend a lifetime with her, what did he do when he first found out? Did he immediately search for hours to find the top doctor in New York? Did he arrange for a babysitter so he could be with her at every appointment? At one point, did he just breakdown - tell her he didn’t know what to do without her. He only just found her after what seemed like a lifetime of searching. And near the end did she tell him to move on? She knew the pain of losing the love of a lifetime. 

TLDR

I understand that this was the ending all along. I just wanted more, I wanted better resolution. Back in season 1, I would have been thrilled for this ending but the show changed and the characters changed. As a result, the writing needed to change in order to bring everything back to the beginning. 

What if the woman HIMYM showed at the end of the last season isn’t the woman Ted marries but instead she’s the kids’ biological mother because Ted and the woman he marries aren’t able to have children of their own and the stories Ted’s been telling his kids these past seasons have just been a way for Ted to buy time and figure out how to tell his kids they’re adopted

there’s one person I have on facebook who’s 4.5 seasons into HIMYM and she’s complaining about not knowing who the mother is

… I guess she doesn’t keep up with TV in a timely fashion

or has been oblivious to the show for the past 8 years

you know you’ve made it when you’re a jeopardy question.

That is awesome! 

Well this is just way too cool

Awesome! I also saw an episode where Fringe was the answer to one of the clues and an entire round of double jeopardy categories were dedicated to How I Met Your Mother. 
I officially love Jeopardy.

Are you fucking kidding me? I should have waited until the episode was over!

  • Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother)

He has this fucking ridiculous mustache. And he swears a lot. Hearing him swear is cute actually. LOL

Just finished watching How I Met Your Mother.

Wow. I did not see that ending coming. 

Ugh. There are so many changes. 

It keeps reminding me that the show is ending next season. 

Which saddens me to no end. 

It also reminds me of how Ted is such a freaking sweetheart. GUH <3

OOOOOOOOOOH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD

DID ANYONE WATCH HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER TONIGHT????

I NEED TO DISCUSS THIS WITH SOMEONE. ANYBODY.

12:50am: Time to watch all of the Slap episodes? (AKA: the Slapisodes?)

You bet!

"Ooh I wanna take ya…" That line definitely does not help my Ted/Barney shipping tendencies.

I could actually see this working.


This would probably work on me.
Especially if it was NPH&#8230;
In the alternate universe where he also goes for women, I have a chance, Fringe is on for an indefinite amount of time, Firefly, and Arrested Development were never cancelled.
