Ted always believed Robin was the one, so Tracy is Ted’s ‘after the one’. Directed by Pamela Fryman. Ted struggled for years, got heart broken and finally found Tracy at the age of 34 to loose her again in few year! ... Who does the captain end up with? ... Robin smiles. if Tracy didn’t die, I don’t think Ted would ever try to be with Robin again. I found the last season to be abysmal, as it stretched a wedding out for nearly the whole season – which was super forced and awkward and just didn’t make for good television. What’s the hook of Korean romance dramas? Read on for more about why I think you’re all crazy for being so upset, but SPOILERS are below for those who have been living under a rock since the finale aired March 31! The mother should’ve lived. Robin falling in love with and marrying Barney may have been uncontrollable. I think the finale is telling us that there are two kinds of relationships in the world: the ones that you fight for and the ones that are simply fate. So Robin leaving Barney and eventually going to Ted means the end of the B/R fairy tale. Already accepting a job opportunity in Chicago, Ted finally decided to let go of Robin for good and leave New York City for a fresh start. Tracy was Ted’s soulmate – that much was blatantly clear.

BOTH of these are valid characterizations of love, but sometimes it just comes down to timing (another major theme of the show). I wish he would have had a relationship like Marshal had with Lily. Where the sailor sees the girl across the crowded dance floor and turns to his buddy and says ‘see that girl? Ted professes his love for Robin the same way he did when he first met her: standing under her apartment window holding the stolen blue French horn. The whole point of the series, in my humble opinion, is to believe that there’s true romance and your other half is somewhere out there, even though there’s no evidence of it right now. Agree, and I’m sure if Ted would have met Tracy 2years ago(e.g) their relationship would have failed . Well, no. As many fans had predicted, the mother (Tracy Mosby, née McConnell, portrayed by Cristin Milioti) has been dead the entire time that Ted has been telling his story. The main reason they worked together was coz Robin married Barney and for Ted she will never be with him again.!!. Because Tracy’s memories would still remain in his life making him not love robin the way he did in the past or calling her his “The One”. Neither of them are ‘the one’ because Ted was never meant to be with one or the other. Basically, my point is that life isn’t linear; it doesn’t follow a straight line or a set path. It is a nice equilibrium that is reached between the relationships and the story as a whole. So much attention was given to the wedding, I can imagine … The show is called How I Met Your Mother, not, How I Met And Stayed Together With Your Mother Until We Both Died In Our Sleep At 93 Years Old, Hands Clasped Together Even In Death. Ted wanted to track down her old best friend. The Mother notes that it seems like Ted wanted Lily to leave and Lily suddenly remembers the locket that Robin had been looking for that Ted thought he had. If it happened to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin and to Robin and Barney, it could have happened to Ted and Tracy, too. It doesn’t disrespect the memory of their mother, nor the story we’ve been hearing for nine years, for Ted to appear below Robin’s window in 2030. I thought the final scene with the blue french horn was absolutely beautiful. I think the moral of the story is that there is no “one”. Ted didn’t need to do anything to get the yellow umbrella. 1) First break up with Ted - it was a mutual breakup. Life can be really scary and the search for the one can be really messed up, I’m only a teen so mine hasn’t started yet. The Creator Explicitly Said That Tracy Is Perfect For Ted. Tracy had also been with someone she considered her ‘one’ before Ted, her late boyfriend Max. Really put me at rest for being so depressed on how the show ended. On New Years Eve Ted's date points out that she can tell he is in love with Robin and that she clearly likes him back. Tracy went back to Max, and Ted found his way back to Robin. For no matter how long, or how short a time, Ted’s destiny was to end up with both of them. Tracy was the one for young Ted, the Ted who wanted children, a marriage, and a happily ever after. And it was so darn cute in that fight episode when Barney pretended to have been in a fight so Robin would like him, hahah. 7 … Ted only began considering moving on from Tracy 6 years after her death. Good read. Would fans have been more or less annoyed if they had gotten divorced? For me, the message was loud and clear: Tracy was the one. Upon reflection, I shouldn’t have been so surprised at the ending, and I thoroughly enjoy that you wrote this article to help viewers just finishing the series now to sort out their feelings.

Ted being so romantic and family oriented person, deserved to have “The One” in his life. Tracy and Robin had different roles to play in Ted’s life. Team-Tracy. Within the first five minutes of the pilot, after expressing to the universe “Okay, I’m ready. But I liked a lot of it too! Unlike Ted and Robin who were always being torn apart by bad timing, Ted and Tracy’s paths have continually crossed for years before they even met each other, clearly fated to meet just at the right time. Ted and Robin fell in and out of love a few times over the course of HIMYM‘s nine-season run, and now they’re back in love. (Well, ti certainly did for me…). They even named their daughter Penny after their love of coin collecting. They were both at the same St. Patrick’s Day party, Ted accidentally lectured Tracy’s class on his first day at Columbia University, and Ted dated Tracy’s roommate. Fans were resigned to the fact the pair would remain friends, despite it being quite clear they were destined to end up together. The sums in question are often around $500: easy for some to pay, impossible for others. (I bring up real people as examples because I cannot be convinced that TV isn’t real life.). That doesn’t make Robin Ted’s soulmate – but considering that his soulmate was dead, he was looking for the next best thing: the person he had been in love with for years before he met that soulmate. He spent 11 amazing years with Tracy, while he spent 8 years with Robin around (2005-2013). Ted may have made the story sounded better then it was because who doesn’t do that when telling stories. The moment Ted let Robin go, he met Tracy. He loved her, but their relationship never quite worked. I guess to be towards the end of the show time began to jump so quickly I feel like viewers didn’t have a chance to take everything in. As a long-time fan similar to many I was annoyed by the ending of the show, but through reading your points here it has definitely made me question my original opinion. After Barney and Robin’s divorce, Barney totally slid back into his partying, manchild ways. That’s when I think I started liking them as a couple for real. Funny thing – once you accept the ending, it makes so much more sense. The love among each other wont be the same, The gang wont be the same. Too often in life, people have dreams and wishes and expectations but it that doesn’t mean each of them is gonna come true. Moreover Robin is not just his girlfriend but Barneys ex-wife that would make it awkward for the gang to hangout with each other like before. Also how your meeting with that person pans out is a great deal about timing. Josh Radnor who plays Ted believes it to be a symbol of “both romanticism and his [Ted’s] slight insanity” representing “the lengths to which he’ll go to win someone.” He can always go after the horn despite constantly losing it, mirroring how he always goes back to Robin. On the other hand, Ted eventually does end up with Tracey who is cool with Robin, though at that point she wasn't around very often. Anyway, despite all the mistakes and hardships that Ted and Tracy made through their life, the fate brought them together and that’s how they met each other! Tracy is Ted’s perfect woman: she played bass, loved the Renaissance fair, and they had the same goals and same dreams. Hence at least in tv series we fan’s can wish to have a perfect magical happy ending! Then I remember that Barney wondered why he and Robin hadn’t hooked up, and Robin agreed that it was strange or something. I may now have to watch the series again (for the 10th time). It has been four years since the finale premiered and I feel the heat has cleared to finally investigate this question fully. Tracy was Ted’s soulmate and Robin is the love of his life. I thought the finale made it pretty clear that both Tracy and Robin were Ted’s ‘true loves’. That did not mean, however, the idea of Ted and Robin was completely shut out. Were you satisfied by the ending, or did you hate it? Everyone deserves to find that one person in their life that makes it complete but the sad thing is everyone doesn’t and it’s sad when you see people you know that have not and probably never found that one very special person for them. Ted and Robin fell in and out of love a few times over the course of HIMYM ‘s nine-season run, and now they’re back in love. We were worried about the wrong character. After all, Ted was pining for his kids' "Aunt" Robin even in the re-telling of his very long story. We see all the clues, we see the lessons they’ve been trying to teach us and overall, I’ve grown to really like the ending. I completely agree with you. However, that’s not what happened here. After an all-season wedding, Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney split up and she gets with Ted in the end. Even though Tracy was perfect for him, his love for Robin never changed. Ted being friends with women isn't the problem, Lily is fine obviously, but Robin and Ted had so much history and specifcally Robin had been a roadblock to Ted's relationship with Victoria before. For nine seasons, Ted and Robin were one of TV’s biggest on again/off again couples, always being torn apart by bad timing, including all the way up to Robin’s wedding day when, hours before the wedding, she asked Ted to run away with her. It will always circle back around no matter how much time has passed and no matter how many women he dates. Probably not. I think the last episode had some great ideas and moments – but it’s ultimately held back by the season that precedes it. It's not like Robin broke up with them and just went off like nothing happened. In May 2013, as soon as Ted finally lets Robin go, Tracy is the One, and she continues to be until Ted is ready to move on. I admit, I felt cheated. I sit at a weird place with the end of HIMYM.

It operates independently with the writers collaboratively building and maintaining the platform. But after many years, it’s not possible to explain all that in the last few minutes of a show, and I think that’s why the finale was so poorly received. Actor Josh Radnor's character Ted meets the mom, played by actress Cristin Milioti, on a rainy train platform after his friends Barney and Robin are married. If Robin were Ted’s soul mate, the series would lose all meaning, however if Ted did not end up with Robin the series would also lose all meaning. EXCLUSIVE: Four days after the How I Met Your Mother series finale, fans of the show are still reeling from the controversial ending that saw the mother die, Robin and Barney divorce and Ted end up… Still, throughout the entire time of this all happening, her friendship with Ted seemed to be non-existent, purely just unfulfilled romantic tension, and dishonesty. As much as the finale will pain most fans, it did justice to the entire series, because Ted’s story has always been about Robin. I think that Ted was never meant to end up with either since there is no “the one”. It then shows Ted realising he still has feelings for Robin, and Robin realising she still has feelings for Ted. I hated it at first, but the more I think of it, the better it gets. I didn’t dislike the way the show concluded by any means but I wish they didn’t have her pass away, it takes like 10 years to finally meet the girl of his dreams and marry her and have kids, but then he doesn’t get to live out the rest of his life with her. If Robin were Ted’s soul mate, the series would lose all meaning, however if Ted did not end up with Robin the series would also lose all meaning. The series premiered in 2005 and we only properly met the mother in 2013, in the show’s 8th season. Wish robin was just a close friend but if Tracy really had to die and that was fate I guess it makes sense that he’s with Robin. Loved the ending – showing how Tracy ended up with Max and Ted ending up with Robin, their ‘first loves’. ‘HIMYM’ Finale: Does Barney Introduce Ted To The Mother? Once again I would love to thank whoever wrote this article as it brought me back to my feet after finishing the show. Robin, there with her five dogs, opens her window. Kevin proposes to Robin, but will he take it back when Robin tells him she can't have children? Do you agree with me, or do I need to look behind my shoulder, as always? How I Met Your Mother can be looked at from the angle of ‘what do you do after you’ve been with the one?’ Tracy believed her one was her late boyfriend Max, so for Tracy, Ted was her ‘after the one’. It’s nice to see an article tackling the contentious How I Met Your Mother finale now that it’s been a few years. The two … It’s nice to steal and play with the blue French horn for a while, but one day not too late down the road you want that yellow umbrella to come your way. I prefer to assume that he spent the 6 year gap being unable to move on, at all. But one thing I can say about this show is that it made me believe in soulmates (not a philosophy class). Tracy was Ted’s soulmate and Robin is the love of his life. Ultimately, however, they break up again after Victoria insists that Ted end his friendship with Robin. "It's not that people cracked some code," he said, acknowledging that some viewers correctly predicted Ted would end up with Robin. But it may not seem that way with most couples in real life because we can’t see what they see in each other. The season was near perfect, and then they’ve butchered it, by last episode. Since the beginning of the series and well past the finale, there has been the argument by fans of whom Ted was really meant to end up with. I, a fan of the series for years, have always sided with the argument that Tracy is Ted’s ‘the one’, but after looking deeply into it, my answer has changed. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Ted gave away the blue French horn but always went back to retrieve it. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, … There was really no point of killing her off, just so that Ted could be with Robin. Took the words out of my mouth! Ted didn’t even fully give up the pursuit of Robin until the end of Season 9—but this is an area where viewers seem to misunderstand: Ted does give up pursuing Robin. Ted always had to fight for Robin. Since Ted has been telling his story, the mother has been dead for 6 years. The horn represented “Ted’s eternal affection for Robin”. Ted never would have met Tracy if it weren’t for Robin and Ted would never have ended up back with Robin if it weren’t for Tracy. They shouldn’t have killed Tracy and Barney and Robin shouldn’t have gotten divorced. I always thought Robin and Barney were meant to be together. Who was ‘the one’ for Ted: Tracy or Robin? Ted also welcomed a child followed by the birth of Barney's daughter. That’s because I rewatched the final episode and when Ted was telling the time he was at the alter with Tracy he said that he would give everything he had to keep her happy and that shows how much to that day 6 years after her death she meant to him. And finally, to disgress just a tiny bit because this is “Amanda Says” and I do what I want, the only part of the series finale that I truly took issue with is Barney’s storyline. THEN, after making us all suffer that season they almost immediately (at least in screentime) get Barney and Robin to divorce after their wedding! Sad. Let me know. It felt like we didn’t get to see him mourning, moving on and eventually being in a place where he could love again and ask out Robin. At the end all those mistakes and hardships would be worth it. The finale sparked controversy as fans were disappointed with the highly anticipated series finale.

Overall amazing article, I especially loved the breakdown of the blue french horn and the yellow umbrella! After Future Ted explains to his children “the true story” of how he met “Aunt Robin”, the idea of Robin being the mother is completely rejected. A lot of you were upset by the genuinely shocking series finale, but I think that it was the perfect way to cap off the 9 seasons we’ve spent with Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor), listening to him tell his two children all about how he met their mother. Tracy wanted him to move on, I think she may have explicitly told him to reconsider Robin after her death (they knew all of each other’s stories after all). She excitingly says yes, and she gets a very nice dress. I’ve just re-watched the last season and the last episode. Hey, Ashton Kutcher was once married to Demi Moore and now he’s engaged to Mila Kunis — does that mean he was in love with her all of his life? Episode 17 Title: “No Pressure” Original Airdate: February 20, 2012 Right after Ted declares his love to Robin, she has to leave on a weeklong work trip to Russia. The title of the series alone leads audiences to believe that the entire focus will be on the mother, however, it’s more about the timing and the journey Ted has to go through and not meeting the mother. Tracy gave him the fulfillment of his lifelong desire for the perfect, fairy-tale romance…. Ted never loved nor will love anyone nearly as hard as he loved Tracy. Sure, it meant that he got some stranger pregnant and the birth of his child changed him back into a mature adult, but it totally cheapened his once-meaningful relationship with Robin. Becky No one Zoey Bill 10 What does the gang warn Robin about that is different about … Screenfice covers the latest Film & TV news. Ted, in the end up being a standup friend in this situation. It’s a complete slap in the face after having to suffer through a terrible season focused on a single wedding, to then have the marriage fall apart instantly. Ted letting go of Robin let to Tracy, and then letting go of Tracy led back to Robin. Fans of the show will remember that in How I Met Your Mother Season 7, Episode 17 entitled "No Pressure" it was revealed that Marshall and Lily were having an ongoing bet involving Ted and Robin; basically Marshall bets that Ted ends up with Robin, where as Lily believes the opposite. But just like the series explores, that’s life. As his daughter Penny (Lyndsy Fonseca) told her father, it was “time” for Ted to go after Robin. Episode 16 of Season 9 had Tracy show she believes “each of us only gets one” and she “got” hers already so she was on “permanent hiatus” in the “love department”. We saw Ted and how he spend the summer getting over her and later in the episode she said she spent many days crying ov The way Ted ended up with Robin—the ending set up, clearly, years ago—was far more interesting and romantic than anything the show could have told us about the mother in 45 minutes or less. As Ted and Tracy finally tied the knot, Robin reconciled herself with her friends. While telling the story, he realized how much he still cared about Robin, his past love, and his children encouraged him to go after her. Robin was truly Ted’s love. I hope one day I can find my Tracy, I’d be willing to find a life partner like Robin but either as a close friend or during the journey to the one. Can’t imagine the feeling when you settle down with the one but it keeps me going everyday. Well, now we know that it's because Robin ended up being the one to take the seat next to Ted. Want to write about TV or other art forms? And to that I say… so? In 2030, Ted has had his kids, Robin has had her career, Tracy has been gone for many years, and now Robin is the One.

West & More As Series 5 Regulars, ‘How I Met Your Mother’: Shocking Final Scene Filmed 9 Years Ago, ‘HIMYM’: Was Cobie Smulders Shocked By Series Finale?
