The continuing story Ted is telling his kids about how he met their mother picks up in 2020, when his gang of friends were largely the same as at Robin and Barney's wedding, except... Ted and their mother still have not made it to the altar, despite both of the kids already having been born, the delay due to timing issues and wedding priorities. Marshall finally receives that much wanted call telling him that he has been offered a judgeship. It's a few years after Robin and Barney's divorce, with Barney having returned to his carousing ways. A major event that occurred in carrying out the new plays in his playbook ended up having what would be the most profound change in his mentality. The "except" part concerns Robin, who is now largely out of their lives, despite the six of them vowing that they would be there for each other for all the big events. Ted looks back once again to his initial meeting with their mother and why it seemed like destiny to be with her, before he concludes ... Written by Huggo

Alternate Versions

An alternate ending was leaked online months after the show finished, and was eventually released on the Season 9 DVD. Known colloquially as "the happy ending", it features no new footage, but instead montages throughout the entire series to show exactly how Ted met the Mother, and changes the fates of all the characters.

The Journey...
3 April 2014 | by pedro-xSee all my reviews

Okay, i admit that the ending wasn't the ideal or something that most people expected. But i believe that is not all about the destination. What matters the most is the journey. And oh boy, what a journey it was! The pineapple incident, the Slap Bet, Robin Sparkles, Barney's Yips, the Playbook, the Murtaugh list, the Naked Man, Interventions, Perfect Week, the Blitz, SUIT UP and so many other AWESOME stuff. So, don't hate the show and the writers. That was their vision from day one, apparently. I will always remember this show for the great stories that gave me. After all, it was LEGEN... wait for it...(never mind) I believe you know the rest!
