ehhhhhh could go either way
how can my first statement go either way? That's what it's been described as in the show. It's three characters recollections of the story, of course they will vary and possibly be incorrect (in Ted's case).

He could mean it could go either way as to whether or not the writers planned that out or simply couldn't keep track. However, I will say I don't think it affects the overall flow of the story.

I question if those who hated the Robin Daggers song understood that it was purely an Alanis Morrissette parody. Hence, Coulier being the running joke of who she was talking about in the song.

Sure, the song wasn't as catchy, but her yelling at the robot for telling her to get over it and the lawyer statement by Dominant Records were pretty funny. Plus, all the Canadian visuals were hilarious.
The song just felt phoned in.

I honestly didn't know any of that about Alanis Morrissette and still enjoyed the episode a lot haha. After researching a bit and reading about her and Coulier, it definitely makes a lot more sense to me/makes it a hell of a lot funnier xD

I have a feeling we're gonna have a Scrubs situation on our hands and wish this show had ended at season 8 once we see season 9.

That said, I hope I'm proven wrong.

You have a feeling Ted and Lilly will leave, Barney will no longer be funny, and the focus being on the mother who is basically just a female version of Ted?

No. I meant that I think the show is gonna be in a state where it should have just ended but gets extended into another season. Some in this thread, and an article I read, have said that the mother might be revealed in this season and be part of the cast for all of the next season. So what I mean is season 9 might feel unnecessary/like they're dragging the show along for no reason.

Just read a potential spoiler on the HIMYM wiki (bottom of this page)

Someone posted back in December on that site that the mother is The Captain's daughter. A comment says, "Sounded like a troll, until now, two months after that post, it is reavealed that the Captain is randomly coming back...Now I'm not so sure."

The Captain is in next week's episode.


Also worth noting - and this has probably been common knowldge and I just didnt know it - that in an interview with HuffPost, the girl who plays Ted's future daughter said:

Do you have any hunches on who the mother is?

Well, there was a time when we were told who it was and to never give the information out. But I have a feeling I really don't know ... It's been so long since I've been there!

I think the big difference that will exist between season 9 of Scrubs and season 9 of HIMYM is that the writing staff for the latter will remain mostly the same. Apparently most of the writing staff for Scrubs left after the eighth season.

I suppose, but there's really no way of knowing.

I guess it was a bad comparison. Anyway, I hope they wow me. I've been really enjoying this season so I'm sure I'll enjoy the final one too.

I would like to see this be more like the 10th season of Friends, where the thought the 9th was going to be it but then managed to get everyone back for a final one. Granted I hope it's a little better than the 10th of Friends but still, that's the comparison I made when this got picked up.
