how i met your mother cheers tweets 'How I Met Your Mother' series finale: Craig Thomas inspired by 'Cheers' ending

If you’re wondering exactly what’s going to happen in the final episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” creator Craig Thomas may be providing clues over on Twitter.
Thomas posted a couple of tweets Thursday (Jan. 2), all about the series finale of “Cheers.” “Watched the #Cheers series finale again for inspiration; cried as hard as I did in 1993. A reminder why we do what we do. #HIMYM,” one message reads, while another says, “I’d be proud if #HIMYM finale were even half as good as that! #cheers”
In the finale of “Cheers,” the main character Sam Malone (Ted Danson) ends up alone in his bar, after friend and customer Norm (George Wendt) tell him he’ll always come back to his one true love. It’s implied that may be the bar the show was set in. That would surely be a bizarre ending for “How I Met Your Mother,” with Ted (Josh Radnor) sitting alone at MacLaren’s Pub.
If “How I Met Your Mother” ends half as strongly as “Cheers” did, that’s going to be one fantastic finale. “HIMYM” takes its final bow March 31 on CBS.
