How I Met Your Mother Countdown: To a Sad Ending

On Tonight’s episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” there was a countdown going on. Through various props in the background, there was a countdown from 50 down to 1. 

I have to admit that I didn’t notice it right at first, but once I did, I couldn’t help but notice the countdown.  This is not something that we usually see on “How I Met Your Mother.” What were they counting down to?

I’ll let you know what they were counting down to after the jump, in case you haven’t watched it yet and you want to wait to find out.

Throughout the episode, we’re lead to believe that the coutdown could be to the announcement that Marshall and Lily are expecting a baby or maybe even that they can’t have a baby. But, instead, we find out that Marshall’s dad had a heart attack and didn’t make it. End of episode.

Where’s our usual funny “How I Met Your Mother?” That was awful!

Did you watch the episode? What did you think of the countdown? If you missed it, you should be able to watch it on CBS.com on Tuesday.
