Q:So on fandom secrets today, someone posted a pic from your blog "I'm going to miss this view (canyon)" and implied that you bought a house in LA just to stalk Chris Colfer. I literally fell out of my chair laughing. OMG, fandom can be so stupid. Anyways, thought you'd get a kick outta that!

I love the question Darren asks what night is dark and also a blockbuster movie! Made me think of curtmega
Lea Michele’s comedic work this season cannot be overlooked. Her timing in this scene, with so much else going on, is tremendous and she gets some great help from a background Darren Criss. Their exchange over Meyer lemons is all in the expressions. Bonus Chris Colfer doing exasperation like he’s got a degree in it.
Have you seen this fantastic review? It also includes such gems as:
“By now, Elliot should learn not to open his door because on the other side might be a dramatic angry person from Ohio.”
“Let us rejoice at the return of Ms Mercedes Jones and another round of Sam and Mercedes!”
“How incredible is this new era of Kurt and Blaine? Easy physical affection, duets, angst, resolutions, showing improved communication? “New Klaine” is more like it.”
What made me laugh: Lea Michele was in rare comedic form in this episode. Chris Colfer’s expressions during mime class – A+.
What made me sniffle: Kurt and Blaine making difficult relationship decisions with love and maturity. Kurt sniffled and so did I.
What made me side-eye: Nothing. At all. Someone mark down this day forever.
What I’m listening to on repeat: The whole EP for this episode. Gems, every last one.
What I’m looking forward to next week: New York isn’t just fun and games, unfortunately.
There is nothing here that I did not like
Omg Chris’s face when Darren told him he got the question wrong.
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER FINALE RAMBLINGS…
Let me start off by saying that I am super late in starting the show. I JUST started watching it back in January and quickly fell in love with each character. As someone who has literally binge-watched for the last 2 months in a desperate attempt to catch up, I thought the ending was absolutely perfect and I’ll tell you why.
I keep reading how people wish the show would have just ended at Ted and Tracy meeting at the train station. I understand the sentiment but I feel like this picture perfect ending is NEVER what the show was about.
It was always messy and flawed and confusing and random and that’s Ted’s whole journey. It was his desperate attempt to make order out of chaos. That’s life. That’s the reason I connected to him. I like the idea that we saw Ted’s journey before Tracy, we see that Tracy changes his life in an amazing way and he loved her for every minute he knew her and then we see that, much like real life, his journey goes on even after her journey ends.
Meeting Tracy was important but it’s not the only thing that defined Ted. At the end, she was a part of it all but more so, his life was shaped by the friends that he knew from the beginning and those same friends were there at the end. Life is a series of moments and we treasure them because they are fleeting and have an expiration date.
In the end, it was ALWAYS about the 5 friends and Robin was always his best friend. Even the kids say it. Ted’s friends are there before, during and after. More so, it was always about Ted. His journey is the heart of the show.
I didn’t take away that it was always about Robin so much as I took away the fact that Ted’s life goes on and, in the future, Robin is still a part of it.
I also like the idea that a sitcom can challenge the idea of what a “happy ending” should be. Really, there is no definitive ending but only a new beginning. The story goes on. And so do we.
