What did you think of Ted and Robin ending up as a couple?

One Last Salute

We watched 9 seasons of the characters changing and growing it made me so mad to see all of them just relapse that quickly!


Worst finale ever. Robin and Ted ending up together was a mistake, it makes me wish i would have never watched season 9 cause them getting married was pointless. And then hearing Robin say she was supposed to end up with Ted makes me feel like she never wanted to be with Barney and that just sucked since they were perfect for each other what a waste of me watching season 9


I know it is a TV show. I watched it for entertainment. I see a lot of blogs out there how the British like the ending that is realistic, or that Americans like the "happy" ending. Well, you watch a show and care for the characters and enjoy the show. Up through the first 7 seasons the show was fun, but it should have ended after 7. The last 2 seasons felt really stretched out, boring and had no real creativity. Ted became the ultimate loser. He gets rejected over and over by a total loser of a woman and still wants to end up with her. Yes he goes outside of her door with the blue french horn. Did she actually stay with him. NO! He shows her the horn and she laughs at him with a smile that shows nothing but pity for his pathetic attempt to win her. She still doesn't want him. So to those that believe they ended up together. LOL. They did NOT! Ted is just sad and can't let go. Barney ends up a huge pathetic wretch. I would say this was the #1 worst comedy ending ever. I think if you go back and watch some previous episodes, then it doesn't even make sense that he ends up with Robin. There are too many references that they don't end up together. Her pathetic face for him at the end shows that too. I know someone will comment and say, no that was a face of joy/happiness or she wanted to see him. I can never be convinced of that. If the writers were going for Legend........they will never get the milk.


It was such a horrid ending that not only did I waste this season watching, but the entire 9 years!!


I thought it was perfect. I loved it.


I think Ted and Robin never would have worked if they got married young. Ted wanted kids, Robin can't have kids. Robin was all about her career, and Ted was about leading a normal and secure life. But after so many years passed, Ted had kids, Robin must have taken back a bit from traveling that much, it was time for her to settle down, and since it didn't work out with Barney, she realized who it was she really needed in the first place.

I really enjoyed the finale, up until the end. From "Vesuvius" up I figured that Tracy was dead, so I had come to terms with that idea, and I would've been fine with that. What I didn't like about the finale is that during "End of The Aisle" Ted tells Robin that he no longer loves her, but at the end of the finale they get back together. In my opinion they weren't that great of a couple to begin with.

HIMYM Quotes

Ted [to Stella in his dream encounter]: You picked the wrong guy.
Stella: Ted?
Ted: You picked the wrong guy. You made a really, really, really bad choice. What were you thinking? That guy? Are you kidding me? Have you learned nothing in the last eight years? You're just gonna regret this. You know that, right? You are going to regret this, and now there is nothing you can do about it because it's too late. All you can do now is go up there and start your crappy, disappointing life that will never be nearly as happy as the one you could have had with me. Good-bye.
Stella: Ted, wait.
Ted: Look, Stella, I am not here to win you back. I am here because I need to know that you know you made the biggest mistake of your life.
Stella: I know

You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.
