No One’s Really Sure How To Feel About The End Of "How I Met Your Mother"

How are we supposed to deal with this?! SPOILER ALERT, obviously.

So, the end of the very last episode of How I Met Your Mother finally shows the moment Ted and The Mother, aka Tracy McConnell, meet.

***MEGA SUPER SPOILER ALERT***

Do not read past this point if you don't want to know the huge reveal in the series finale.

Then the episode cuts to Ted's kids and we learn The Mother gets sick and dies. By the time Ted's telling the story, she's been dead for six years.

Ted's kids then give him permission to chase after their Aunt Robin, saying it's clear they really like each other. Cut to Robin's apartment.

And there's a ring at her doorbell...

By the time the finale ended, #HIMYMFinale was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter. And the reaction from fans was pretty split:

#HIMYMFinale Ted & Tracy were actually perfect. He admitted that. It's so out of his character to go back to Robin. His crush end years ago.

Many viewers were disappointed, upset, and mostly just sad the show was ending. And some also felt a little cheated that they watched the show for nine years just to have Ted and Robin get back together.

#HIMYM good episode... Awful ending! I was so tired of ted and robin years ago. God I'm disappointed. Great job show... Real great job
