How I Met Your Mother's Theories Of Death: 3 Alternatives To A Morbid Ending - Creepy - 2021

When it comes to the almost here-lying finale of the series " How I met your mother ”goes, some questions have been raised as to whether our narrator Ted Mosby has been through nine seasons of a television show in which he explains to his bored children how it goes, he met their mother. It was a fun and hilarious tick that made the CBS show one of their tentpole comedies. And as the seasons have passed, so are the theories of "why". And as it turns out, the most debated theory among internet users is that the mother is actually dead or dying. Which! As you know, a pretty sad thought (just ask Cristin Milioti).

But it is not without substance either. We're not going to go into the myriad of details the internet unearthed to support this theory (but you can read some of them here), but it's definitely plausible. The greatest reference to this hypothetical being, however, came in last week's episode. During a dinner at the Inn in 2024, Ted and the mother chat sadly and knowingly about the surprise that Robin's mother had come to her daughter's wedding after all, which provoked the mother's response, "What kind of mother would miss the wedding of her own Daughter? ”Of course, it got TV fans and conspiracy theorists alike in a whirlpool of frothy anger, and convinced a lot of people out there that this hair-raising theory is indeed correct.

Of course, we all know that Carter Bays and Craig Thomas had their eyes on the development of the series from the start. And they love to play around with the audience's interpretation of things. So! WE thought: what if the mother did too then not would be dead? And if it isn't, what kind of theories would think if they knew what we know and what we have seen so far? We tried our best to do just that: see if you think it holds up.

To prove that there is a chance that mother Not is dead, we must first poke holes in the theory that the mother is dead. Which - to be fair! - is a simple thing because all we have to do now is a guess rolled into a ball of potential hypotheses that have been genetically engineered to fight the feelings (especially the Sads).

First, the two damnest pieces of evidence to back it up: The mother was never mentioned in the present during the Flashforwards for Children. And then of course the apparent pivotal point from the episode "Vesuvius", in which the mother asks Ted: "Which mother will miss her daughter's wedding?" Ted cried. What could explain all of this? Well.

Maybe the mother's mother misses her wedding

For all the certainty that people have put in that moment mentioned, it sure is vague as shit. What if they aren't talking about Ted and the mother's daughter, but rather the mother's mother? This theory is just as likely - and would spark the same reaction from Ted - as the "mother knows she is going to die and miss her own daughter's wedding" theory.

Could the mother have Alzheimer's?

This also seems too gruesome not to mention the straightforwardness (um, retrospective spoiler alert, I think?), But we know how much people love the darker theories, so it's worth pointing out. Perhaps the mother will still not remember the wedding, what brought Ted to tears? Dark, dark shit, but still: no better or worse than any other theories out there.

Or maybe it's something else entirely! Like the daughter

The daughter declared that she will never get married? Did the daughter run away without her knowing? When you consider that we know so little about children's trajectories, literally anything is possible.

In each Love case Bays and Thomas a red herring.

As Tampa Bay Times writer Sharon Kennedy Wynne explained:

The word Vesuvius appeared in the flash forward of the episode "Coming Back" when Ted mistakenly saw a word in his crossword puzzle as Vesuvius earlier this season. I still had the September episode on my DVR and checked to see that Ted pronounced the word out loud, but then found the word was wrong.

As in life, the reason the story was so long and drawn out wasn't a buildup for the ending, but the point. Nobody writes a show to get to the end - they write it to convey feelings, messages, emotional resonance and entertainment. Because the happiness in life springs from tragedy - and all characters have seen tragedy - and how we all get there. The title of this show is a red herring in itself, because it was never about how Ted met his mother, it was a love letter to the friendship of his group. Friends are just as important life partners as lovers (let's be real) and help us to become the person we need to be to find and accept love. Ultimately, Ted was only ever able to meet the mother because of his friends and the difficulties he (and the rest - and the mother!) Had gone through, which is why the theoretical footnotes of his life are as central - if not more - to his story than the End point.
