Robin floating away like a balloon for forty five minutes.

yeah that was all that was wrong with her and we’ve seen how that turned out - in the end, it didn’t matter at all (of course it didn’t). still, they had to ruin it some other way.
also funny that ted’s was “she’s afraid of commitment”, like, thanks barney for serving your purpose and fixing her for ted, now she’s ready to be with mr nice guy, the one who could never accept her for who she really was!!1!!1!! ya y
"the kids had 6 years, the audience didn’t"
The writers had 9 years to either make Ted apologize for making Robin uncomfortable/sad over the last 8 years or at least show SOME KIND of regret (instead of “I don’t regret making an ass of myself to you, cuz now were best friends!”) or make Ted and Robin more appealing (good luck with that given the chemistry she had with others that she didn’t with Ted on top of her and Ted being unhealthy).
More like the writers had 9 years to write a good ending that corresponded with the show development.
More like the writers had years to figure out how to show remorse/sadness for a dead title character so it didn’t feel carelessly brushed off.
More like the writers didn’t even have to “play it safe” with a different ending they could’ve just played it right, let messiness happen to characters who should be strong enough to handle it by now (9 seasons.) and resolve the issues people have with things (like the unhealthiness of Ted/Robin).
Barney and Robin could divorce, Tracy could die, Ted could move on but the glory Ted got as a hero who got everything he ever wanted, including Robin who was destroyed as a character for the sake of this ending, is what I’m furious at.
The writing was cheap, it was forced, it was selfish, it was disrespectful and it was a terrible sick note to end a wise show on.
I am not gonna praise that, that’s why this will never be ok (especially when they knew people invested themSELVES in this story that taught us things and made us grow and hope).
9. Years. (ok I’ll talk to you about this again in actual 6 years time and see if my opinion changed. [it won’t.])
