A few months ago I posted my thoughts on Season 9 and the mothers identity being exposed. If you can recall my rant I was pissed off that Ted & Robin didn’t seem to end up together
How it’s unfolded has left mixed reviews but I personally believe the way the writers wrapped up the series was loyal to the storyline & its characters
I do feel bad for Tracey, I grew to like her & her quirkiness. And I did get the hint that this could be a possibility when Tracey told Ted that soon he’ll have to stop reliving his stories… Was it ideal to end it that way, no but it closed the story for both Ted & Tracey & finally brought together Ted & Robin
Season 9 gave us insight to Tracey. Who she was, Where she came from, What made her be at the Wedding, and also the influences she had on the main characters
Season 1 - 8 circled around Ted’s chase for Robin; His attempts to move on, His inability to let her go, His patiences & persistence, and putting Robin’s happiness before his own - which carried onto Season 9
I do agree, the show should probably be renamed ‘How I Met Your Step-Mother’
But all in all, it just shows how unwritten life is and the twist & turns that could happen to anyone. Life isn’t a fairytale but we all have the ability to make our own realities.
Life lesson: Never give up on the one you truly love
