She CLEARLY was not written to have been lying. Which is forking OKAY. Sigh. So much characterization, ruined.

Exactly, which is Robin suddenly loving him again in the finale felt forced. Tbh, Ted suddenly being in love with her in S7 felt pretty forced as well.

Ted being in love with Robin again in S7 did feel fairly forced. But I should've known then what they were up to, even though that was anything but an endgame moment.

Mischa is doing a workout program!

With HIMYM and VM, hindsight is 20/20 in terms of feeling like I shoulda seen it coming, lol.

They talked a LOT about their T/R obsession. I shoulda known better.

Which never made sense to me, since they did an extremely poor job of writing their relationship and Cobie/Josh's chemistry was mediocre at best.

Even Mark never misled BL fans in the way they did BR fans

I do think Mark eventually came out and said that he was not going back to BL, lol. But the HIMYM writers set up B/R as endgame to keep their shippers invested and that is just LOW.

It's crappy to deliberately lead fans on, to an ending you know they'll hate. It's one thing to just not go where fans want you to, if you're honest about it, but that was a whole other thing.

That's why I've got no sympathy for the damage to the finale did to their careers

Yeah, acting like they were being loyal to their creativity is crap given how they framed the last few seasons. They deliberately manipulated fans.

They were still stupid to see that the show had outgrown their ending

Yes, but they weren't even honest about it? They knew the fans would hate it, and they played us.
