Storyline

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.

great show dumb ending
17 June 2016 | by kristylynnhoardSee all my reviews

I know life isn't all sunshine and rainbows but Nothing in this episode rings true to the characters on this show. Barney and Robin breaking up with little explanation.(they could have at least had barney do an interesting monologue about what went down.) Robin begrudgingly choosing to be with ted out of desperation of growing old alone and friendless even though she hates kids and guys with mellow personalities.

Marshall and lily are almost completely missing from this episode. Then we are told the gang breaks up and never see each other anymore, but in earlier episodes we see aged versions of the whole gang hanging out together. I remember one blurb in the future where a stoned ted was trying to locate his wife who according to this would have been dead by then.
