How I Met Your Mother alternate ending


For those who thought the series finale of How I Met Your Mother was an early April Fools’ joke to all its loyal watchers, here comes some (potentially) great news. Co-creator Carter Bays tweeted that the Season 9 DVD Set and the Complete Series DVD Set will contain an “alternate ending” to the controversial finale. As to what exactly such an alternate ending will consist of, well, your guess is as good as mine.

According to Bays on Twitter, “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. We’re going to include that version on the Complete Series DVD as an alternate finale to How I Met Your Mother.”

So let the rumor mill start churning out theories. How will this alternate ending play out? Will they just cut out the Ted and Robin final scene? Will the mother pop into the room in the year 2030 and tell Ted to stop boring their kids with his stories? And will we ever find out what happened with the pineapple?!?

I want to believe that this is a worthwhile Easter egg, and not some ploy to get me to drop $100 on a complete series box set (though I have to admit, the packaging for the box set looks pretty freaking sweet). And though I remain firmly in the camp that the finale was quite well done, I’m very interested to see what this alternate ending ends up revealing.
