So, people are pissed about the series finale of How I Met Your Mother. It sort of invalidated what we learn in the very first episode—Ted isn't going to end up with Robin. One guy was even so pissed about it he made his own cut of the finale, which is, admittedly, better.
Even though the HIMYM team was all, "You can't please everyone!" it seems co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays actually wrote two endings, one where presumably [SPOILER] the mother doesn't die.
The second ending won't air on TV, but we'll all be able to see it on the season nine DVD set. This may be a cheap ploy to sell DVDs, but we're OK with it as long as we can pretend that episode never happened. Maybe the last few years, too.
