Leave it up to Mr. Ricardo Dylan for fixing the "How I Met Your Mother" series finale and giving us this rather perfect ending. It ends on the perfect note and in the perfect spot - how Ted meets the mother.
It doesn't allude to Tracey passing away, it doesn't hint at Ted ending up with Robin later, it ends exactly where it should have; under the yellow umbrella.
While many folks are still outraged at the real HIMYM finale, I think the sticking point is not that the mother dies (which has been hinted at for years), it's that Ted ends up with Robin at the very end.
Again, I think the producers wanted to try to tie everything up into a little bow by making it come full circle, but that wasn't the point of the show. It was learning how Ted met the love of his life, not how he moved on to the woman of his dreams ten years ago.
