2016: "We got divorced."
I AM GOING TO PUNCH SOME PEOPLE IN THE FACE.
NICE STORY RUINED!
SERIES FINALE CANON CANCELED.
I will bet 100 million dollars they get remarried some point in the future, but that doesn't mean a damn thing.
(Just in case, I bet another 100 million dollars that they don't, but Ted and Robin wind up together in the distant, distant future)
7:28 pm: I hate everyone in this bar. (note: current location is actually a rooftop)
7:38: YOU ARE IN SO MUCH TROUBLE IF THIS IS NOT "NOT A FATHER'S DAY" REDUX, SHOW. And you're already in trouble for both Bastard TV Baby #38235, and your repeat of "marriage, lol, who does that before building a life together?" nonsense.
7:45: SHOW YOU ARE IN SO MUCH TROUBLE. At this point I am just choosing to pretend I'm watching Neil Patrick Harris in real life with his actual kid.
7:47: The 7 years of non-marriage, incidentally, is actually ruining the last saving grace this show had. Goodbye, wonderful fairytale in my head!
[edit: wait. Aren't they shown to be married in the nearer future? CAN THIS WHOLE EPISODE BE WHAT TED IMAGINES HAPPENS, SCRUBS FILM SCREEN STYLE??] [edit 2: no]
7:55: NO! Not on top of everything else. Unacceptable. ("Even when she got sick.")
7:58: OH MY FUCKING JESUS CHRIST ON A CRACKER AND MAY ALL OF THE HELLFIRE RAIN DOWN UPON YOUR HEADS.
7:59: On the bright side, Robin having a life full of dogs again does correct one of the worst mistakes the series ever made, so I guess that's...something?
I'm so angry right now.
