Monday night’s sixth season finale of How I Met Your Mother may not have been the funniest of the season, but it certainly gave us some high drama and exciting reveals.
Earlier this year HIMYM got the rare double renewal, ensuring that the show will be returning this fall and the fall of 2012 as well. Last night’s episode was the second straight one written by show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. They have brought us some of the greatest episodes of the series. They have always said that they know the beginning and the ending and have been bridging the gap in between.
Certainly, some big things happened Monday night. Surprisingly, there wasn’t very much development for Ted’s story. Ted (Josh Radnor) had finally broken up with Zoey (Jennifer Morrison), but was it for good? For much of the episode Ted struggles over whether it was right to split with Zoey. The gang knows that it was, and when Ted begins to have second thoughts they go after him. Barney and Robin do some detective work to find him and stop him from making a big mistake. For a moment, the old Ted says that was how he met his kids' mother, but quickly says that he is just kidding.
As for Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel), this was a big episode. Lily originally thinks that she got food poisoning from their favorite soup joint, but can’t warn Marshall before he has already had two bowls. Marshall had a big interview planned for that night, and could not reschedule. He decides he must go, but is paranoid about the impeding sickness in his future. Marshall never gets sick, and calls it a miracle. Lily tells him it wasn’t a miracle; she never had food poisoning in the first place. She is pregnant! Read More...
