I'm pleased to say i enjoyed every second of the finale of HIMYM, unlike the previous episodes which starred a certian actress whom doesn't deserve the title in the least...
this episode was more than a redemption, it easily slips into one of my top 5 episodes slot, for the first time i was not only laughing out loud, i actually let out a burst of screaming excitement at the end, accompanied by a blanket of chills.
So he proposed... but the writers left much room for assumptions and pondering.
I have two theories...
since it cut scene before we got an answer, we can not assume stella is the mother. duh. be we can not rule it out either.
if she does end up saying yes, its going to have to be in the first episode of next season. that doesnt leave much room for a show anymore. so if she does, there is either going to be a split up very soon thereafter, or she is just going to say no.
my other theory is that ted actually sustained a head injury of some sort in the accident and will be faced with amnesia and not remember proposing, or will come to his senses and realize that isnt really what he wants.
The only way this episode could have been any better is if it had been abby who was hit by the bus instead of barney. And i know that she will be returning in season four, but god i wish she wouldnt.
either way, or any other, i am very pleased with the finale and all i have to say is, How I Met Your Mother: Thank you.
