article imageOp-Ed: 'How I Met Your Mother' alternate ending pleases fans

By Mandy Robinson     Sep 6, 2014 in Entertainment
The show "How I Met Your Mother" ended its final season not long ago and a lot of fans were not happy with the ending. Now a new version has been released.
Every Monday night my family would sit down to watch "HIMYM" and we couldn't wait to see how it ended. We were invested in this show and wanted to watch Ted Mosby find his one true love. At the end of the show, he finally found her just to have her taken away. That is not how myself and a lot of fans wanted to see this show come to an end.
The new alternate ending was just released and this one gives Ted his happily ever after. This clip is supposed to be on the DVD box set that comes out on Sept. 23, but was leaked early and posted online. So far CBS is not commenting on this leak.
The original ending that aired on CBS had the mother dying of cancer and then Ted ended up back with Robin once again. This was a terrible ending considering that every bit of this show had been about getting to the part where we finally got to meet the mother. Viewers met her, fell in love with her and then they took her away immediately just for him to end up back with Robin once again.
US Magazine shared that when the original ending came out the writers stood by their decision. Co-creator Carter Bay said: "We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series. We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too."
This alternate ending to "How I Met Your Mother" gives some viewers the closure they had been looking for by the show ending with Ted finding his true love and staying with her. Robin is still with Barney and life goes on just like everyone expected it to with this show. This is the ending that should have been on the show to begin with but at least now viewers can choose which way they liked better and have it end that way in their minds.
