8 TV Shows That Had the Worst Series Finales of All Time
For those of you who haven’t seen the How I Met Your Mother series finale, stop reading because I’m about to talk about a whole bunch of spoilery spoilers.
I’ve been watching this show for years, waiting patiently to find out who The Mother is. I fell in love with Barney and Robin and rooted for them to work because I believed that Barney was a good person deep down inside. I rooted for Ted to find the love of his life who was not Robin because I think he was just so desperate to love someone. I wanted to get to know The Mother after hearing about her for so long. And I wanted to know where that pineapple came from.
But NO. HIMYM just ruined everything. Two commercial breaks into the finale, Barney and Robin are divorced after we spent this entire season obsessing over their wedding. This whole season has been AT their wedding. Even though everyone on the show said this wasn’t happening, they killed The Mother. Oh and then the kids are all “Mom’s been gone for six years, go get Aunt Robin.” And Ted brings Robin the blue French horn to her old apartment where she’s living with presumably those dogs that Ted made her give away back in, like, Season 2.
I’m not just upset, you guys. I feel BETRAYED. I’ve seen a lot of bad finales, but this was the worst one. It wasn’t even done well. I didn’t like the finale of Friends either, but it was done well. To wallow in my sadness, let’s talk about some of the worst finales of all time (all filled with spoilers so don’t say I didn’t warn you):
