All the characters exist, but not necessarily with the personalities they're depicted with; it's all biased by Ted's recollection, and the producers have demonstrated that the events we "see" aren't always the events that happened.
So you are saying, Barney is really Marshall and Marshal is Barney and the mother is dead? You think they do the Roseanne ending?

No. I think that Barney exists, but may not be the legendary skirt-chaser Future Ted recollects him to be. Probably the rest are spot on, but Barney seems to be more of an exaggeration than the other characters.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

Little dark to end the series by showing that Ted's telling the kids the story because they just came back from the funeral. Roseanne ending is probably out...

But yeah, think back to any 'epic' story you could tell from your youth. If you sat down and told it to me, you'd probably tell a slightly more exciting version that I'd have seen if I was standing there when it happened. Human nature.

And Ted's definitely editing the story a bit. They've said and shown it a million times. One of my favorite recurring ones was brought up again last week, though. Ted was all messed up at the art gallery because he was at home "eating a sandwich" with that "boats, boats, boats" girl. He hasn't told the KIDS that connection, but they've told the audience that whenever he mentions sandwiches, he means pot. this week's was obvious, but when it's more subtle (like when Marshall got locked out of his house by the neighborhood kid, and he looks in to see him eating Marshall's sandwich), it's entertaining.

Speaking of "Boats Boats Boats!" girl (Laura Bell Bundy), she's definitely a cutie:



Surprised we haven't seen her in a while. It's been about 3 years since she was Robin's co-host on that early morning show.

The characters on the show could very well be manifestations of Ted's personality or wishes. Robin is his idealized love interest, Barney is the ideal womanizer single Ted wished to be, and Lily and Marshall are the ideal couple Ted wishes to be part of some day.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

While all this psychoanalyzing off Ted's story and claiming that huge parts of it are basically false is interesting theorizing, I'm pretty sure nothing so off the wall will end up happening. It's a pretty straightforward show.

I'm hoping that we just don't have an ending where Ted walks up to girl in the band, says hello, and we get a 1 second shot of the her saying hello back and then it kicks back to his kids with: "And that kids, is the story of how I met your mother." Roll credits.

So what are you saying, it's like A Beautiful Mind writ large? What a kick in the teeth that would be.

I fully expect that to happen. And it will be Lori Loughlin, a CGI Lori Loughlin.

Or SMG.

Well, you can just imagine the kids go "Oh come on Dad, what happened next?"

Maybe they change the title to "How I Married Your Mother".

Have they already given the go-ahead to another season? I have mixed feelings about that.

See! My idea is catching on.

It's the perfect cameo.


I wonder if we'll ever see Future Ted as played by Bob Saget. They showed us Future Robin, Future Lily, and Future Marshall all played by themselves, so probably not.

Also, the episode with Mike Tyson showed Future Lily and Future Robin "18 Years in the future" which is contemporary with the time Future Ted is telling the story to his kids.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

I bet all the characters exist in (future Ted's) reality. I bet they throw us a curve and when "future Robin" comes in you have her played by a different actress, and future Barney is a fat guy or something. Then we reveal that future Ted is just Bob Saget, showing that when telling the story, Ted was creating idealistic versions of his friends and himself.
