How I Met Your Mother

Last year around this time when How I Met Your Mother wrapped up it's season
with a flash forward of Barney getting married I made a prediction 
about what would happen in the one that ended yesterday.
I was correct.

I won't spoil anything so don't worry if you haven't seen it yet!
My coworkers and I all watch the show and would have weekly discussions,
because in our twisted Lost watching minds, the plot couldn't possibly
be as simple as intended. There must be some sneaky side plot to uncover.
Did this happen to anyone else after six seasons?

I explained that if I were writing the show, HIMYM,
I would reveal Barney's future bride in the flash forward,
while making their present day relationship appear irreparable.
And that is pretty much what happened.

I'm not sure if I should be pleased with myself,
or disappointed that I could see the plot line so clearly.

If the wedding takes place in the present at the end of next season,
they could spend most of the season making things more complicated,
then of course, at the last minute things turn around and a few episodes
later they're getting married. But I'm not sure if I would have another
season begin and end with Barney and his future wedding.
I guess it all depends on how many more seasons they are planning,
because if I remember correctly, Ted meets "the mother" at the wedding.

Did you watch last night? What do you think?
