How I Met your Father Season 1 finale had quite some drama
Hulu‘s How I Met your Father Season 1 finale just aired recently. And it sure tried to deliver in terms of drama to the fans. From interesting reappearances, a couple of breakups and to the solving the puzzle between the Captain and Sofie’s love story, it tried to cover something for all.
The title of the finale episode is “Timing is everything”. The episode begins with the Captain trying to negotiate the divorce terms from Becky, who wants his boats.
Meanwhile Jesse (Chris Lowell) almost present-day Sophie waiting at the restaurant. However he comes with a half-hearted excuse. Jesse met his ex Meredith for closure and they end up sleeping together. While Jesse is asleep, he confesses he loves Sophie in front of her which freaks her out and she ends the relationship.
Charlie and Valentina break up since she wants to have kids. Robin Scherbatsky from How I met your Mother makes a surprise appearance and gives some advice to Sophie. When she runs to Jesse to mend things, she sees him kissing his ex. Drama!
Heartbroken, she leaves for her exhibition to meet her friends and celebrate her work achievements.
How does the episode end?
Ellen gets the job offer. Sid (Suraj Sharma) has a surprise or everyone that he and his long-distance partner Hannah are secretly married. The Captain surrenders all his boats to his wife but leaves one for Australia. He says that the marine biologists are working for procreation in coral reefs.
This scene is in reference to the first epsiode where we see Sophie on a Tinder date. Her date is Ian (Daniel Augustin), who is a biologist working for procreation in coral reefs. In the final moments of the episode, Ian reaches the exhibition and asks Sophie if it’s a good time.
Ugggh! Such a major cliff-hanger, right?
