It’s the end of an era for the MacLaren’s crew, and we have so many feelings about it!

The series finale of How I Met Your Mother aired last night to mixed reviews by diehards of the lovable and silly sitcom—because so many people were so attached to Marshall, Lily, Ted, Robin and Barney for nine seasons!

Twitter erupted into a frenzy after the east coast showing, with seriously pissed off fans and some peeps that actually liked the ending!

If you have yet to see the hour-long special, we’ve supplied you with a unique GIF recap of the eps events—and even threw in what fans might’ve been thinking during the scenes…

It was legend – wait for it – dary, in it’s own way!

1. We start with the meeting of Ted and his future ’90s cliche bass player of a wife:

3. Ted stays (obviously) because he met a girl! Marshall and Lily are pissed, but happy for him:
