Neil Patrick Harris Explains Why He Was 'Big Fan' Of 'Mother' Finale

In an appearance with David letterman on Thursday night, Neil Patrick Harris explained exactly why he was a "big fan" of the polarizing 'How I Met Your Mother' series finale.

"The structure of the show is sort of a long winded tale that older Ted was telling his kids and it went on for a looong time," said Harris. "And at the end you flash to that point, which is in the future."

"So a lot of things sort of wrapped up in the end. And it wasn't the happy ending people we're expecting but (creators) Carter and Craig knew this ending years ago and had played towards that."

"I was a big proponent of it and a big fan of it," he said. "Sometimes people's growth doesn't really mean that they grow up."

"There's certain people that you want them to get in a solid relationship and really settle down, learn from things," he said referring to his character. "And you want Barney to be the guy who you bring your mom home to. But Barney is the guy that wants to bang your mom. And at the end of the day it's not always meant to be that way."
