Get Ready, Because ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Is About To End The Series With A Major Gut Punch
Nine years. It has been nine years that we have all been watching “How I Met Your Mother” (and loved almost every minute of it) in wonder waiting to see how Ted finally met the mother of his children.
It wasn’t until last night that it all made sense to me. Why is he sitting his kids down and telling them this super long story about this? Most people could cover the telling of this tale in 15 minutes, maybe less. But after watching last night’s episode it clicked. The mother is dead.
This would be the second time that one of my favorite sitcoms has betrayed me. When they killed Marshall’s father it hit a lot of people hard.
On the other hand bravo for telling a story like this. After all what’s life without laughter and tears?
It’s only fitting. This is why Ted and the mother (played by Cristin Milioti) know all of each other’s stories. They only have a short time together. Ted has searched, and searched for the love of his life only to have her taken away all too soon.
There will be tears. Oh yes, there will be tears. Ugly tears.
