How I Met Your Mother Alternate Ending Released

How I Met Your Mother‘s loyal audience was pretty pissed off with the way the show wrapped up its ninth and final season. When it comes to terrible finales, the general opinion places the HIMYM ending second only to “Lumberjack Dexter.”

If you didn’t catch it, here is a brief synopsis of how the main character met the mother:

I’m kidding, but only sort of.

Well now HIMYM fans can rejoice. In what must have been a mad panic, the creators put together an alternate, happier ending. It was supposed to be the secret ingredient that would make jilted fans buy the massive boxed set “How I Met Your Mother: The Whole Story” when it arrives in stores on September 23rd. Fortunately, the entire alternate final episode leaked online so you can enjoy it right now. (If you’re quick enough. These leaked videos are getting pulled down like crazy.)

The ending, along with a ton of other extras, will be available in the boxed set. If this alternate cut has rekindled your love for the show, you can pre-order the set on Amazon.
