So Ted goes back to Robin. What is it? Season 1? Why did they even have to insert 389463983 episodes in between? #HIMYMFinale

People are just hating on the #HIMYMFinale because it told them the cold hard truth about life, death, love and friendship.

Sad and very beautiful. He loved her, and he lost her. Life is not perfect. It’s a journey. Kudos for writing an honest ending #HIMYMFinale

I liked it because it was real. People don’t always stay together and you may not end up with the person you thought you would #HIMYMFinale

‘How I Met Your Mother’ Finale — Does The Mother Die In Final Episode?
And after nine years of bad dates, blue horn red herrings, and left-at-the-alter blues, we finally learned how Ted met the woman of his dreams and the mother of his children. But before we could even do our long-awaited victory dance, our hearts were broken into a million pieces when The Mother (Cristin Milioti) ended up dying in a shocking twist!
Ted may have loved The Mother deeply but it turned out the real love of his life was right under his — and our — nose all along. That’s right, HIMYM fans. Ted ended up with Robin. Robin, the one who he loved from day one. Robin, who was happily married to Barney for all of three years before getting divorced (another shocking reveal in the finale).
So whether you like it or it makes you want to climb aboard the Murder Train — that, folks, is how Ted finally got his happy ending.
