“Because maybe it’s dumb to look for signs from the universe. Maybe the universe has better things to do; dear God, I hope it does. Do you know how many signs I’ve gotten, that I should or shouldn’t be with someone? And where has it gotten me? Maybe there aren’t any signs. Maybe a locket is just a locket… a chair is just a chair… Maybe we don’t have to give meaning to every little thing. Maybe we don’t need the universe to tell us what we really want. Maybe we already know that, deep down.” – Ted to Robin, S08E023
I should’ve posted this one days ago but I’m like “naahhh”. Kidding I was like “waaahhh” because FEELS. TOBIN FEELS. I always shipped Ted and Robin. But let’s talk about the “Something Old” episode.
First, if Barney really loved Robin he would’ve went to Central Park even if Robin said it was stupid MY HEART DROPPED WHEN TED DIDN’T GO TO THE MEETING AND WENT TO HELP ROBIN. Then they started talking about signs. And I totally disagree with Ted, but he has a point. It is really dumb to look for signs from the universe. But I’ve been doing that ever since I was born.
Anyway, did you see how Robin held Ted’s hand. Wait, their hands just touched but they didn’t hold hands? Idk it’s complicated lol.
Let’s go to the last episode of Season 8. Something New. I WATCHED THIS EPISODE LIKE 20 TIMES. A NEW RECORD. The only episode aside from this that I watched over and over is the “No Pressure” ep and only for 13 times (yes, I counted). Apparently, Robin’s “Something Old” a.k.a her locket, has been with Ted all these years. And Ted’s planning to give it to her as a wedding gift. Wtf wtf wtf TOBIN SHIPPERS LET’S HOPE ROBIN SAYS THE WRONG NAME IN THE ALTAR AND LEAVE BARNEY BUT IT’S NOT GONNA HAPPEN BECAUSE SHE’S IN LOVE WITH BARNEY AND SHIT THIS IS A SIN FOR HOPING THIS TO HAPPEN SO LET’S JUST DROP IT OKAY. I’m still secretly hoping Robin’s the mother…. but I need to stop because she isn’t. Future Ted has been addressing Robin as “Aunt Robin” to his kids. Who calls their mom, “Aunt”? 😦 So yeah, I’ll drop that too. And I think Robin doesn’t have a thing for Ted anymore so…
Oh and Ted is moving to Chicago. Because he already searched high and low in New York for “the girl” but didn’t find her. Well he did, but she’s marrying his best friend *ugly sobbing*. The scene I liked best in the last episode is when Ted told Lily if he gets any chance to make Robin happy he doesn’t even think about it anymore, he would just do it. He would do anything to make Robin happy and would even open a vein in his arm just to bleed the locket out. Ted really does love Robin but maybe in a “friend” way. Or maybe he doesn’t love Robin anymore, he just cares for her. BUT I’M PRETTY SURE TED STILL LOVES ROBIN BUT ISN’T IN LOVE WITH HER. You get what I’m saying here? Haha.
“Love sometimes means taking a step back. I think if you care about somebody you should want them to be happy even if you wind up being left out.”
I also just found out the next season will be the last one It’s kinda sad though. I watched HIMYM for the past 2-3 years and then poof. No more. But every good thing has to end 🙂 HIMYM taught me good things like learning how to wait for love, maybe even learn how to love somehow, and being a good friend. Aww. Haha. I really can’t wait for September!!! Aaahhh that is all.
Oh and here, watch this to give you Mobatsky feels.
