“How I Met Your Mother,” a show I never followed closely, is over. The Mother, as everyone learns, is dead. The Internet is going crazy with fans who hated the ending, and feel cheated. Well, it’s just a TV show. Most endings are bad, except for “Mary Tyler Moore,” “Newhart,” and “St. Elsewhere.” The rest of them were all botched, from “Seinfeld” to “Lost” to “Cheers.”
But wait: Cristin Milioti, who played the Mother this season, lied outright to the Hollywood Reporter about the death. Of course, they believed it since they posted the video and promoted it. Milioti is a nice girl. I can’t imagine she decided to lie on her own. Someone at the show or CBS must have told her to do it. Not good. She just shouldn’t have done the interview.
So Ted married the Mother, she died, and he married Robin. This means all you had to do was watch the pilot and the final episode. The whole last season was a waste of time. I’m glad I didn’t waste mine. Live and learn, kids.
Listen to Milioti say how crazy the fans are to think the Mother died:
