Advertisements All of those are what you make of it. I don't see any of those things as building up to the two of them getting together. And to me they didn't have the hallmarks of the will-they-or-won't-they tensions that built up and well known in other series (e.g. Cheers, Moonlighting, et. al.). To me the trope all of those built on is Ted being brought in to fail by Rebecca and Ted winning her over so she becomes an ally instead of an enemy. Of course you can absolutely be right and saw this coming a mile away. We'll just have to see what happens in the finale this Friday. Whether it is or isn't, all that matters is I enjoy and am satisfied with how the season concludes.
