Episode complete credited cast:


The continuing story Ted is telling his kids about how he met their mother picks up at Robin and Barney's wedding reception. Despite being mesmerized by her when he first spots her as the bass player in the wedding reception band and despite Barney believing that she too could be Ted's true soul mate, Ted, after an emotional goodbye to his friends, left the reception early without speaking to her to head back to the city as he was moving to Chicago the next day, and thus did not want to start something he couldn't finish. With help from a woman at the Farhampton train station, Ted received what he and that woman both believed was a sign for him to actually speak to their mother.

Worst ending ever
26 July 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

its the worst ending ever after an amazing build up of 9th season. the entire season made barney better. Swarley was perfect relationship. And if barney cant work out with robin, there is no chance Ted and robin can work, never. Robin is too away and cold for Ted. Loved the way it ended for lily and Marshall. Ted and Tracy were perfect. Hoped they built that relationship. The ending was so worst it didn't make me cry. Ted and Tracy were amazing. Hope the producers redo the ending. Loved loyal, honest, caring barney in entire last season. I really hated the ending. It was just awful. I know love is messed up or crazy. But Ted and Tracy were more perfect then Ted and robin can ever be. Ted and Tracy were like Lilly and Marshall.
