Kids, after thousands of theories, some of which are horribly depressing, we’re finally going to learn how Ted met the Mother tonight. But we still have some unanswered How I Met questions, including:

-What’s the deal with the Smoke Monster?
-Where’s Beth?
-What happened to the Russian?
-In episode 2F09, when Itchy plays Scratchy’s skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

So, yeah, it won’t be a satisfying finale unless creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas fill in ALL those blanks. Until then, let’s discuss some of the things that we’ll miss the most about How I Met Your Mother, a show that may have been on for too long, but like The Office, when it was good, it was GREAT.

1. Robin Sparkles’ songs, or the lack there of.
