Official Alternate HIMYM Is What Everyone Wanted

Submitted by on September 6, 2014 – 2:47 pmOne Comment

After the fiasco that was the How I Met Your Mother ending, Fox (the studio behind the show) announced that it would release an official alternate ending with the complete DVD collection on Sept. 23. And though it hasn’t been confirmed, it appears that ending has leaked online a few weeks early.

Series creator Carter Bays explained at the time that they only shot one ending, but “through edit room magic [they] had two possible outcomes for the series.”

As fans will see, the alternate ending basically just ends earlier- with Future Ted quickly recapping the nine years of chance encounters and mishaps that brought him to that point, with Ted and Tracy (the mother) standing on the rainy platform in Farhampton, and the line, “That’s how I met your mother.”

The original ending that aired went on to show Tracy become terminally ill and die, Barney and Robin get divorced, and Ted get back together with Robin. Many fans were upset not only at the sad elements, but at the speed with which The Mother was written off after nine seasons of build up.

What do you think of the alternate ending? Let us know in the comments below.
