SPOILERS: ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Stirs Passions in Social Media

How I met Your Mother HIMYM

The story finally ended — and left fans divided over Monday’s hourlong finale of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother.”


Some found the closure offered to Ted, Barney, Robin, Lily, Marshall and Tracy (aka the mother) touching, while others expressed disappointment via social media.

In the end, which stretched into the 2030, Barney the ultimate bachelor became a father a few years after divorcing Robin; Ted later wound up dating long-lost love Robin (six years after the mother died), while Lily and Marshall endured with three kids and Marshall running for a state Supreme Court judgeship.

    I was so mad about the How I Met Your Mother finale until the last five minutes because I couldn’t understand how Robin was such a huge part of Ted for eight years, and then she was barely in it. You wouldn’t start a story to your kids about how you met your spouse with how you met an ex. There had to be a reason for it. And the series was to explain that him being with Robin after the mother passed wasn’t just him throwing the mother aside, he wanted them to know exactly how much someone needed to mean to him for him to move on from the mother. People that still disagree with this, clearly have never watched the show very closely.
