The weapon we have is love…
On Earth Day, these photos remind us just how little we know of the planet we call home.
Judge me: I really enjoyed HIMYM Finale. With Spoilers.
Maybe it is because I didn’t watch the show for 9 years. Maybe it is because I had a hard time when Ted and Robin broke up for the first time. Maybe it is because I can relate (too much) to the story… I can’t really explain, but I think this was a nice finale.
No, I don’t think it was perfect. If I had written it, for example, I’d probably make the last scene one of the 5 of them together at Maclaren’s. Maybe a scene with all the kids, on Ted’s home or at Lily and Marshall’s.
I didn’t exactly like the way we went back and forth in time. It made me confused and I actually watched the episodes again to try to understand a little better what happened.
I agree with a lot that I’ve read around the internet that the mother wasn’t given the proper attention. The show is called, after all, how I met your mother. And yes, she was incredibly sweet and the perfect for Ted, but maybe she was too perfect. And that’s why maybe, just maybe, we didn’t get a happy ending for them.
If it wasn’t for the scene with the kids, shot at the very beginning of the show, I’d consider that they just decided to kill the mom off and let Ted be with Robin because that was the natural course of action. Maybe Ted and Robin doesn’t feel right, actually, because over the years we saw how good she was with Barney. And we did spend one entire season waiting for them to get married (just so they could get a divorce on the next episode).
But the real thing is, honestly, it makes sense to see Ted and Robin together at the end. Ted starts the story with Robin. Out of a lot of girlfriends, she’s the first one that matters to the story. Then he tells us how he didn’t stop loving her. Not ever. Probably not even when he met the mother. He just learned to love them both and to see Robin from a different POV.
Fact is, I love them together. Always had (even if I also love Barney and Robin). So I am happy with the way the show ended. (They could also have made the mother move away, ask for a divorce or whatever, she didn’t have to die #sad). There are other reasons that made me love how it ended, like the way Lily tries to make them continue together as a group, the way they tried to hang out, but couldn’t because life got in the way… I can relate to both these things and many other facts of the character’s lives and that’s probably why I’ve loved watching this.
Farewell, HIMYM. I will miss you.
