I really feel sorry for Robin. I don't think that what the writers did with her character was necessary :(
It was so intense and very sad, even shocking episode. Yes, i was crying for Robin:( Although there was given very thin clue about whether Robin will have kids or not, I'm still hoping that "pole-vaulting" is not necessary means "having a baby". C'mon, it's 21'st century, there are many other ways have a kids even without adoption!)
Btw, anyone knows when the next episode is coming? In this or next year at least?
i have a crazy theory from this episode...robin dies an untimely death. at the end of the show, after saying robin never this and that, ted continued to say she never....until she never was alone. if he's telling the story around age 50-55, then it would be early to declare her never alone. and if that tragic plot happens, it would be pretty badass to have played highway to hell.
I definitely did not expect that last bit about her never being a "pole vaulter". When it went to her never having kids, I thought there'd be another twist into it to show that she does end up having Barney's child. My heart is just completely breaking for Robin. Cobie Smulders did such a tremendous job with this one that it was so easy to feel with her. It's sad knowing that she won't have biological children of her own, most of all none with Barney.
Does this mean Barney and Robin don't get married??
"Your father"...I know she doesn't have kids ever but I can't remember if in the past they said anything ever about Barney and kids....
Very sad episode. great writing though. barney definitely doesn't marry robin in the finale. when barney asked about the right tie. He wouldn't of asked that if it was robin. Gonna be becki newton. Blahh!!!!
AmyGirl...I think Robin not pol vaulting pertained to her never being able to have children of her own biologically, but adoption is another story and a very interesting idea you bring up. After all Barney did say how he was pretty sure he had taught his "little guys" to swim in the opposite direction, but maybe he has been firing blanks all these years and will be open to the idea like his brother was. Whether he has been bringing a knife to a gun fight, a pen to a test or Robin is indeed infertile, does not mean they can't adopt a beautiful child someday. Ted did narrate that Robin never would "pole vault," but I don't think that rules out such options as adoption. This is not to say one needs to have children to be fulfilled but despite her impressive list of future achievements she did seem to sort of wish her fictitious kids weren't figments of her imagination.
I'm still hoping she ends up with Barney. Maybe it's the inner me trying to make up for when I found out Santa wasn't
I was really sad to learn that Robin's "kids" were just her imagination. I was so excited for her and Barney. I enjoyed Marshall's scenes and think that he will be remembering his dad more in episodes to come as he and Lily prepare for the baby. I am curious as to whom Barney will marry in the end, and I am a bit worried that he was questioning whether he made the right "tie" choice. I thought it would be Robin, but now I am pretty sure it is not.
To Amygirl: I think "Robin will never be a pole vaulter" means that she will never have kids period. I consider "having kids" to include adoption also.
Great. All the characters should get to be narrators for an episode or 2. "I'd never in a billion years have kids-Sorry kids" And the kids weren't even real! Robin was pleased that she wasn't pregnant but then sad that she could never be pregnant. Ted's facial hair in the flashback LOL! I thought someone would mention the fact that Robin locked herself in the bathroom at Thanksgiving as a clue to what's wrong. The lights and music at the end were great.
I am seriously thinking about boycotting this show!
i didn't like this episode.. it was so depressing, i even cried for robin!!
I think the symbolism and satire of talking to her imaginary kids (like Ted) for Robin was that she would never have kids. Clue in that she doesn't live in an house dwelling but in Ted's old apartment are clues that she is in fact somewhat independent. Whether she is married to anyone is still anyone's guess in the future?
I as well found this episode amazing, yet very sad. I am confused though; is she imagining the kids she COULD have had with Barney? Is this in fact confirmation that Robin will never have kids? By the way, I count adoption as having kids.
An adoption storyline for Robin would be amazing as well.
Sorry, I've never been the best judger of symbolism and the symbolism present in this episode confused me.
