Look, it’s carter fucking bays talking himself into a corner again with his half assed explaintions.
What is he even saying??? He has no real answers here and is backing out I pretty much everything the finale told us why are our writers so dumb??
He gives such a generic answer to the first one, like the person didn’t ask about people in general; they asked about Barney and Robin. I just LOVE that he says you can’t judge relationships by a yardstick like “forever” because Lily and Marshall’s relationship was a “forever” relationship; it was their characters and how they were written. The basis of the show was Ted wanting to spend “forever” with “the one”.
And if everyone, including him, we were rooting for Barney and Robin why shatter over 5 years of character development within the span of 15 minutes and then carry on like they’d been together for 5 seconds?
My favourite has got to be how he avoids the question of Barney and Ted’s relationship completely. It would have ruined it; anyone who watches the show knows that. Barney always got the “ok” from Ted before pursuing the love of his life but Ted never did yet Ted always had the right to be angry.
The whole finale was fucking sad Carter. You kill off the mother after barely giving her any screen time or taking time in the finale to show her and Ted’s relationship for more than 2 minutes then you resort back to what seemed like the pilot episode rewritten.
Lastly, if you didn’t feel entirely comfortable with it why use it? It’s okay to change something you had originally thought of, all writers do and it’s not a bad thing. It means your characters were three dimensional and had growth as if they were real people.

I love this part cause it’s true and annoys the shit out of me. Too sad? Really the mother dies and that isn’t sad for you? But, seriously Barney can get an okay to go after a girl who is single and isn’t with anyone he has to go through his friend? Nope not buying that bull. Ted was never a friend to Barney…
