Monday’s series finale to CBS’ How I Met Your Mother has left fans a little more than outraged. (Spoilers ahead)
After nine years, the show’s cult following finally found out that the mother in the show died, leaving many feeling betrayed, angry and hurt. So, of course, they took to Twitter to voice their upset.
We took a look at what some HIMYM groupies had to say about the ending, and almost all of it isn’t pretty.
Most people can’t believe Monday’s ending was the real thing.
My hope is that the end of How I Met Your Mother was just an early April Fool’s joke and they will air the real ending tonight. #HIMYMfinale

Comparisons have been made.
The Bee movie was better than the end of How I Met Your Mother. #HIMYMFinale

The reaction to the finale certainly cements #HIMYM‘s status as the Lost of sitcoms.

It’s good to invest your time wisely.
What I gather this morning is that the several years I spent *not* watching #HIMYM were a very good investment.

Although as one who had a fatal disease, I think they could have called it How I Met Your Dead Mother & saved a lot of suspense. #HIMYM

Hindsight is always 20/20.
The kids rolling their eyes is actually really dark in retrospect – “Yeah Dad you were always waiting to leave Mom for Robin we know” #HIMYM

Hey kids, so I know your mom is super important to you and she died, but I’ve had the hots for your aunt Robin all along. Lolz #HIMYM

Only one person actually liked the episode.
I for one really liked the #HIMYM finale. Choice vs chance, what it means to be an adult, the unexpected sources of happiness. Good stuff.

While co-creator Craig Thomas was thankful for every last bit of it.
Thank you all. I mean it: Every possible reaction to the last 44 minutes…thank you all…#HIMYM
