We know you’re probably bummed that “How I Met Your Mother” is on a hiatus until Monday, Feb. 24. But don’t fret, fans: We’ve got something that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy, despite the frigid temps outside.
On Monday, Feb. 11, "HIMYM" co-creator Craig Thomas tweeted a picture that will surely make you squeal: a photo of the “HIMYM” series finale script. “Ladies and gentlemen, please meet the #HIMYM series finale,” Thomas wrote to his 31,000 followers. Receiving nearly 1,000 retweets and favorites, the creator decided to continue titillating fans with more hints of the final episode.

“95 pages. Start shooting the 2 part finale next week. # HIMYM #gettingtooreal,” he said. The hourlong series finale of “How I Met Your Mother” is set to air on Monday, March 31, from 8-9 p.m. Eek! We better start planning our “HIMYM” series finale party now.
The finale episode, written by Thomas and series co-creator Carter Bays and directed by Pamela Fryman, is titled “Last Forever.” And that may be the only clue you’ll get as to what happens when Ted and “The Mother” finally meet. According to Thomas, he almost accidentally spoiled the series finale when the flash of his camera revealed the text within the script.
“(My first pic with the flash on seriously showed too much dialogue through the title page! No spoilers! #HIMYM)” he wrote. But it seems like Cobie Smulders didn’t get the memo. During an interview with IGN, the actress (who plays the series' Canadian heartthrob Robin Scherbatsky) confessed how she reacted when Thomas told her the final scene.
“I know the whole thing,” Smulders said. “I went up to Craig after the table read, and I was like, ‘What is the deal with this?’ He was like, ‘Well, do you want me to tell you? I was like, ‘Yeah! I think I want to know,’ and he just laid it out. I immediately started weeping and had to leave. Like, I had to leave. I said that, I was like, ‘Craig, I have to leave right now. Thank you,’ and I just walked away.”
Smulders went on to say that she feels “HIMYM” fans will be quite pleased with the ending of the show. “You know, I feel it’s very beautiful and very true to life. That’s what I feel about it.”
