Given the fact that “How I Met Your Mother” has literally been a part of our TV-viewing lives now for almost a decade, it is easy to feel like it is going to be extremely hard to say goodbye. The next two weeks are going to hopefully bring a sense of closure for the show, and answer (at least most of) your questions.
But before we get too much into that, why not start with taking a look back? The video below is mostly going to make you emotional just because of how much the characters have aged and grown up. When you watch a show in real-time, you don’t always notice the changes, since they all happen subtly over time. Then, you go back now and look at clips from the first season, and realize just how much time really has passed from start to finish. It’s pretty crazy.
Finally, the extended promo for tonight’s “The End of the Aisle” mostly contains a good deal of information that you have already seen, but there are a few tiny new clips thrown in here to get you excited. While the last two episodes have helped to further provide closure to Marshall, Lily, and most of the show’s longtime recurring characters, tonight should bring some closure to Barney and Robin’s relationship. That only leaves Ted and The Mother, and their future will be dealt with in a very real way during the series finale “Last Forever.” Just that title alone is somewhat sad, and that makes you wonder if, along with some of the hints of a possible illness, dark times are coming.
We’ll have a full review up of tonight’s big episode at the link here following it airing. In addition to that, be sure to sign up to get some more updates from us on all the shows we cover via our CarterMatt Newsletter.
