Finale, final scene:

TED is talking to KIDS. His face is hidden.

TED: (V.O.): ... and so that is how I met your mother.

ROBIN enters.

ROBIN: Ok, guys. Story time's over. It's past your bedtime. Everybody upstairs.

KIDS: Awww!

TED: Now, now, listen to your stepmom. Tomorrow night, I'll tell you how I divorced your mother and finally married the love of my life.

KIDS: Yay!

ROBIN smiles, sits on TED's lap and affectionately musses his hair. Fade out.

texdent: So most of that weekend will be of Ted pining over Robin and then instantly forgetting her the moment he sees the mom?


I see you've met Ted.

Am I the only one hoping that the 'Mother' in question is some one night stand that get's knocked up, tracks Ted down and sues him for child support. He never get's Robin or much of anything else he wants in life, but he slaves away to provide for his kids who live with the mother and never see him. The final scene reveals a 50 something Ted writing at a desk. Zoom in as he finishes a letter with 'And that's how I met your mother' then he pulls a pistol from the desk and the camera pans away as we hear a single shot.
I quit smoking today and my brain is boiling with darkness. Is this how goths feel all the time?

I was talking to someone recently who watches the show al the time. New episodes, reruns, streaming... everything.
So, I asked:

'you know Alyson Hanigan plays Lily, right?' Of course.
'And you know who plays Marshall?' Naturally, Jason Segel.
'Well of course you know the actor who plays Barney?' EASY ONE! NPH!
'And the other girl, Robin?' Cobie Smulders, yeah.

'OK. Who plays Ted?'

I still want Lyndsy Fonseca to be the mother despite the big reveal.

//Then I want it revealed that Barney and Marshal died in a car accident. So Ted stepped up and marries both Robin and Lily and has all of his wives pleasure each other nightly. Then he moves to Utah to start his own polygamous cult where a new spin off series takes place and the character of Ted meets and marries a new woman each week.

My takes on the finale:

There is no mother - The show all took place in his head, St. Elsewhere style.

or

There is no mother - Ted later discovered he was gay, convinced Barney that his woman-chasing was over-compensation, and got married. The kids were kidnapped from the maternity ward.

or

There is no mother - Ted went insane when he was stood up at his wedding, abducted some kids, and is forcing them to listen to his insane fantasy, like Mrs. Havishham in Great Expectations.

Could it be that Josh Radnor hasn't done anything else in his career except play Ted Mosby? Alyson Hanigan, Jason Segel, and Neil Patrick Harris were all huge stars before the show started, and I'm betting most folks wouldn't know Cobie Smulders if she didn't have that weird name. She also isn't as well known as you are indicating.

I think calling Jason Segel a "huge star" because of two unwatched, short-run television series is pushing it.

How about for  The Muppets, Forgetting Sarah Marshall,  Knocked up or This is 40?


aka "movies Jason Segel was in after How I Met Your Mother started"

They have to wrap up the show soon before Alyson Hannigan's jowls start producing audio problems.

"...I don't know if I'm sold on stretching an entire season over such a short period of time. I guess we'll see."

Meh.  The show jumps around so much we probably won't even really notice.
