Neil Patrick Harris Defends HIMYM Finale

WARNING: spoilers ahead

If somehow you still haven't heard about how the HIMYM series ends, do not read any further!

When the beloved show How I Met Your Mother aired it's season finale a few weeks back, many viewers were outraged.  How could they drag the show on for 9 seasons and the mother is dead the entire time? Everyone who was rooting for Barney and Robin were left disappointed, and many fans felt that the ending was "an easy way out."

The show's star, Neil Patrick Harris, made an appearance on "Late Show."  He told Letterman he was a big proponent of the season finale.  Harris defended the ending, saying that Barney isn't the type of character that is going to settle down and change out of the blue.  "You want Barney to be the guy you bring your mom home to, but Barney is the guy that wants to bang your mom," Harris told Letterman.
He continued to defend HIMYM, saying that "sometimes people's growth doesn't mean they grow up."
