a complete list of everything wrong (imo) with the himym series finale
reversing barney’s character development - he made such long strides in the season, with robin and marriage, and then as soon as they break up he becomes a womanizing player again
a player who becomes even creepier than before because of the age difference between him and the young girls he hits on
a player who goes for a “perfect month” and gets #31 pregnant
we don’t even get her name, at all - she’s just #31 the whole time
reversing his character again - what, because of #31′s baby? if robin couldn’t completely change him–the woman he finally accepted marriage for, the woman he loved for years, the woman who was his other half–how can a baby do it?
reversing ted’s character development - he let go of robin, he watched robin fly off into the sunrise, and yet he ends up with her at the end. he should be over her, completely, especially with the addition of the mother
ignoring lily’s entire character - after rome, she does what? becomes a stay-at-home mom? plus she’s the one who keeps reminding everyone robin’s not there - why does she become such a downer?
except for her ability to give marshall his three children, because apparently that’s all she’s worth
giving marshall some of the success lily should have had in her life - she’s not just a baby-maker
breaking up robin and barney - they spent the entire season enforcing how perfect and strong their bond was, every episode was about them overcoming something they were afraid of, and yet they break up after three years? because of some lousy traveling? that’s so trivial
exploding robin’s career as soon as the honeymoon is over - that’s just a little too convenient
making robin pine for ted after divorcing barney - robin and barney were perfect for each other, they overcame everything that stood in their way, and they were ready to spend the rest of their lives together…robin couldn’t possibly be pining for ted! why would she be? barney was the love of her life, and they would’ve stayed together if not for her career
KILLING OFF THE MOTHER - AFTER THEY SAID THEY WOULDN’T
can you tell i’m a little angry?
she didn’t need to die! they barely had any time together! it was only a way for ted to get together with robin
ROBIN AND TED GETTING TOGETHER AT THE END - NO ONE NEEDS THAT, HE ALREADY GOT OVER HER, HE FOUND THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, THEY’RE OVER, THEY’VE BEEN OVER FOR SEASONS, OH MY GOD
making the kids the ones to say he should get back together with robin - were they even listening????? HE WAS OVER ROBIN, HE WATCHED HER FLY OFF INTO THE SUNRISE, AND YET THEY STILL BELIEVE HE SHOULD GIVE UP THE MEMORY OF THEIR MOTHER FOR ROBIN????
ROBIN DOESN’T EVEN WANT KIDS - DO THEY THINK SHE WOULD BE OKAY WITH BECOMING THEIR STEPMOM????
AHHHHHHH THEY RUINED THIS SHOW WITH ONE EPISODE AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
So maybe that’s the way life works sometimes but… But… They just destroyed 9 seasons’ worth of character development and story arcs for some stupid creator wish fulfillment. I don’t understand. Grr… So angry
