However dissatisfied you may be with how “How I Met Your Mother” tied up its loose ends (yes, some of it was awful), it has to be admitted they at least attempted to give you answers. Except for one thing — where did the pineapple come from?
Buzzfeed has so graciously put all our minds to rest by revealing the mystery behind “The Pineapple Incident” that has plagued us, and Ted Mosby, since Season 1.
For those struggling to remember, in Season 1 episode 9, Ted got really drunk and woke up with a mysterious girl (or Winnie Cooper from “The Wonder Years”) in his bed and a pineapple on his night stand. The girl was able to help piece together what happened the night before and how she ended up in the apartment — but she had no idea where the pineapple came from.
It took eight seasons, a handful of mentions and a pin board before Ted finally gave up. That is until Season 9 episode 20. Remember when Lily and Marshall got into that huge fight and she ran off to the Captain’s house so everyone had to chase her there to piece together what happened? From the Buzzfeed exclusive clip from the Season 9 DVD set, it turns out the gang found out a lot more than what Lily was doing at the Captain’s house. Watch below and have your minds blown.
“How I Met Your Mother” Season 9 will be available on DVD Sept. 23.
