I could have lived with that but after seeing what we actually got, that alternate ending looks too boring, safe, expected and forgettable. I loved that they ended things with a twist and turned the whole show on its head.
Since we're going through endings we liked and didn't like...
How I Met Your Mother
...largely because of their twists and satisfying endings with some closure.
Star Trek: Voyager
...because of their non-endings that dropped the ball or left something hanging.
