hoping they meet before the last 5 minutes

Why would the title indicate it's longer than one hour?

"Forever?"

Just guessing.

Man, that was an awesome finale episode. I'm so glad all the various story lines got so neatly wrapped up. I sure didn't see that twist coming though. Pretty shocking. [/sarcasm]

Oh wait.... It hasn't aired yet.

I'm now thinking the theory discussed in other threads will be wrong. Just a vibe I got from the last episode.

No fake out. The theory was true. Unfortunately so.
Though the daughters point about why he told the story he told did make sense.

Ugh. I'm just pissed.

The only story line I enjoyed was Barney.

I save the Inside the Actors Studio until now. Going to watch it almost as a reunion episode.

I think it would have been a lot better if they shortened the time they spent on the future and the whole "big moments" thing and did a little more Mother stuff

It's a sign of great casting and fantastic writing that we rooted for the mother this whole time.

I hope to see more of Cristen Milioti on my TV.

Bah.

I seriously don't think the daughter would point out how little Ted talked about her Mother. Her lines there kind of totally ruined it for me.

Plus now they're going to have a Mom who never wanted kids and is always gone.

Bah. Psssh.

If I would have watched every episode in the last season, I would have been kind of miffed that Barney and Robin got divorced, just like :snap: that. But I wasn't too invested in it and only watched 4 or 5 episodes.

Anyway, it was pretty good, but felt rushed to me. And a bit disjointed with the year long jumps. But satisfying, and I did tear up at points. Especially with Barney falling instantly in love with his daughter.

LOVED the kids at the end.

Barney and his daughter felt very very real. Kudos to NPH.

Not as bad as I thought it could be but I'm disappointed. Obviously that was the early story plan and would've fit a few years ago. Doesn't fit anymore. Ted and Robin seems forced.

Lyndsy Fonseca (the daughter) said they filmed the ending 8 or 9 years ago. Good for them for keeping a secret for a long long time.

Did not love that. Pretty much turned into an episode of "How I Deleted My How I Met Your Nother Season Pass In A Disillusioned Rage."

The only thing I can laugh about is all the arguing over the title. It wasn't about the title after all.

I had wondered about that. They kept the same "kids" for 9 years.
And the daughter played Alex on Nikita O.o

I thought it was great. I don't 'love' the Robin thing, but they worked it well there at the end.

The first 15 minutes were awesome.

The moment in the rain was awesome.

Barney was great. And his moment where he pleaded to just be himself was well done.

They had to sign a NDA, IIRC.

The whole episode was emotional and I was ok with Ted ending up with Robin in the end. I might be alone there.

I don't think you have to worry about that season pass.
