After fan outrage over the ending of How I Met Your Mother, co-creator Carter Bays took to Twitter to explain there’s an alternate ending coming our way.

Carter tweeted, “If you didn’t like the finale, I guess that happens. We tried something and it didn’t connect with you. I hope we’re still friends. So anyway, here’s a bit of news: 16 days ago today we were in the HIMYM edit room, trying to decide between two very different endings. We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series. We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too.  We’re going to include that version on the Complete Series DVD as an alternate finale to How I Met Your Mother.”

So even though it means buying the complete series to get it, we will get our alternate ending. Hopefully we’re looking at a more satisfying ending that doesn’t feel like it betrays 9 years of character development. 

What do you all think about this promise ending? Will it be better? Or will they break our hearts all over again?
