My two cents on HIMYM

Spoiler Alert: If you haven't watched the season finale yet, don't read beyond this line!

I know what is bothering me about the season finale of HIMYM! Yes, I should have realized that all along, Robin would have to be "The One" for Ted. I actually like the fact that Robin and Barney got divorced, because Barney is Barney! He can't be "not Barney"! What I hate is the fact that the creators of HIMYM casted the perfect person (Cristin Milioti) as the mother!

I fell in love with her the second I saw her! The phrase "Cute as a Button" was coined just for her! She totally had me with her rendition of "La Vie en Rose". She jelled with the gang so well. I was invested in her! Like Lily said, (When Ted called her asking for a date) "Not like this!". In my mind, she was supposed to be the one, the one that makes Ted forget all about Robin, the angel who is going to erase all Ted's sad memories and fill his life with perfection. I'm even ok with her dying. I wanted Ted to go on reminiscing about the good like he had with Tracy. Instead, he went for Robin again!

So I am going to pretend this is what I saw on the finale! Alternate Ending
