Just a thing that occured to me..
Boy, the writers really did bring Ted low this season. There's jus been so much dark for him and he really got desperate and sad that at times i really felt sorry for him.
As much quality the show lost during the years i'm really excited to see the final season and everything unfold for the better for Ted. Everyone else got happy and their wishes fulfilled and it's really time for Ted to get happy for the rest of his life.
