I know it is, Mark. It would be interesting if Barney did set that up. I think it's ironic that Barney hit on Tracy and yet his wedding is what ended up bringing Tracy to Ted.

And what is it with couples high fiving each other on this show?

It's all Barneys fault

Yeah it was interesting that Barney of all people helped Ted find the woman he searched for his entire life

Ii loved when they were sitting on the bunch and she was talking about how she was going to leave her boyfriend and Barney said "Hmm, I wonder if there's anyone I can hook you up with. "Nope, nothing"

Hah! Yeah, Barney was also thinking about hooking up with Tracy himself.

Wait, which boyfriend was Tracy referring to? That jerk she was seeing that she broke up with right before she played at the wedding?

Awww, here's a cute pic.

I think that's the one, yeah. Because Barney introduced Robin to Tracy while she wa playing bass and he asked if she was still with him which she said no.

I love that Tracy was the one that convinced Robin to go to her wedding to Ted

Yeah, that one really got me. I don't know how many women would invite their fiancé's ex to their wedding.

Very true but it showed just how special Tracy was and she knew how important his friendship with Robin was and Tracy wasn't jealous of that

I liked the scene where Tracy first saw Ted teaching that class and laughed at his joke when no one else did.

Me too

Ahh, they were so perfect together.

It still hurts what happened to them.

Yeah, it's a shame that the writers chose to use Tracy as a prop or a plot twist. They could've at least given her a better ending.

Yeah, definitely. The people that liked Ted/Robin wouldn't be happy although they could have at least shown us more of the time that Tracy and Ted spent together or the kids at least getting sad and showing that they missed their mom and it was hard but they were ready to accept Robin and that Ted had mourned her long enough and that she'd want him to be happy.

In the final scene it looked like they were heading that way but they just rushed right through it in a 3 minute conversation with Ted working up to try and call Robin..ugh.

Well, at the very least they could've spent some time leading up to Tracy dying so we could see Ted prepare and then mourn afterwards. The problem was they didn't make the decision to even have Tracy be a regular cast member until near the end of season 8, and by then there was no time to write enough for her because they were gonna stretch that damn wedding across the entire season.

Yeah that's what I didn't like was that we didn't get to see the morning period and at least show some of the final moments they had together when she knew she was really sick.

I really don't know how bays and thomas imagined that stretching out the wedding for an entire season could do anything but limit their possibilities and hamper the writing. Further damaging that by basically making that weekend meaningless in the end

Instead of getting more Ted and Tracy we got a bunch of flashback episodes to moments that we had already seen and heard about. The last slapsgiving episode was a huge waste of an episode and it's glaringly obvious during a re-watch

Well, then let me post this video here as well. It sheds a lot of light on the ending.
