I just watched the latest episode of HIMYM this is what I understand from this episode:

-Ted might have died in the future and the kids are
watching a recording that Ted made for them

-Ted dies from an accident/illness

*Note Ted says:

>His kids are wearing the same clothes in every episode

>Says that he would've gone back to see his old apartment,
his friends (Basically appreciate hi life and youth more).

>I love you, I'm always going to love you. Until the end of my
days and beyond, see?

*I really hope I'm wrong- I want to see him happy.


I forgot to mention how awesome Josh Radnor was in this episode. We see whiny Ted a lot - but he did such a good job of conveying the despair, the loneliness. That moment when he ended up alone in the bar staring at the one ticket - that broke my heart.


Woah - It was such an emotionally exhausting episode since the "Symphony of Illumination" in last season. Although somehow this episode had a therapeutic effect on me.

If they ended the season with Mother Cliffhanger, i am so going to be distracted through out the summer!


This was one of the saddest episodes of HIMYM probably.. The speech Ted did in the end was heartbreaking and I think a lot of us can relate to that.

The fact that either Ted or the mother could be dying didn't cross my mind. I hope -and think- it isn't true.


I am loving these comments. Best discussion we've had this season. Thanks everyone and keep em coming.


My favourite parts of the night all include the multiple Teds and Barneys...especially when they all answered in unison about the coat check girl, and this scene:
"Ted: Should I go talk to her?"
EVERYONE answers in exasperation LOL

And that rendition of The Longest Time was golden - I did not know Josh Radnor could sing like THAT. I'm so glad I saw that, it made me happy.

I personally didn't get the feeling that the mother is dead - I just thought that Ted hit rock bottom in his loneliness and wished he didn't have to spend those extra 45 days alone. Let the story tell itself, people!! This isn't "LOST" :-)


Have you considered that maybe the one who dies may be Ted and not the mother:"Until the end of my days...and beyond".


I know Lisa... "Where is this notion of the mother or Ted passing?? I think he is just wanting to make his loneliness go away by not having to wait those 45 days to meet her..." I'm reading the comments like, whaaaat?!

It would be an interesting little twist that I didn't seen coming but I've always thought Robin and Ted were perfect so after the show ends I'll forever think... it should've been Robin.


IT WAS SUCH A STRANGE EPISODE! Did the whole night happened at all!?

Ted's final speech was so HEARTBREAKING! I just wanted to go and HUG him! The events before where quite amusing. With the Highlight of THE COAT GIRL FUTURE appearences! Muffin! Sweet! *_*

Robin and Marshal! Were the highlight of the episode. SO funny! Quote of the ep : It's Sparkles BITCH! hahahhahahahaah

Can't wait to wee how they will troll us in the season final.
