'How I Met Your Mother' alternate ending: Finale DVD has HIMYM alternate ending

The ending of "How I Met Your Mother" got a lot of backlash from fans on the March 31st series finale episode. Huffington Post reports April 5 that when the season 9 DVD comes out, more will be addressed on show in the finale.

It was revealed on "HIMYM" that the mother, Tracy, had died six years before Ted began sharing with their kids how they met. Ted's kids made him realize that he was still in love with Robin. At the last minute, Ted went running over to Robin's and stood outside her door. This made fans extremely unhappy and creators of "How I Met Your Mother" decided on an alternate ending. In fact, some fans were so upset, that they started a petition!

Co-creator, Carter Bays, said this:

"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."

When will the "HIMYM" alternate ending come out? According to the report, the season DVD set and series DVD set will be available this fall. Rumored spoilers include "that the answer to that infamous pineapple incident will also be featured on the DVD collection," but the creators remain tight-lipped on that speculation.

Are you glad to hear that an alternate ending has been made for "How I Met Your Mother"?
