This is so sad.
The Tony and Emmy Award host extraordinaire suited up with the rest of the leads of How I Met Your Mother and the show's creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thompson, to talk at a panel on Saturday. True story!
The team showed a HIGHlarious clip of Ted's kids complaining to their dad about how it took him 8 years to tell the titular story of how he met their mother.
However, Carter had this to say about the trajectory of the concluding season, which is not so simple as it sounds:
"We're always going to be flashing back and flashing forward. Decades will span over the course of this weekend."
We're so excited for the last season to start up so we can see the hopefully laser tag-filled wedding between Barney and Robin, and, of course, the slap to end all slaps!
