The Take takes on Robin from How I Met Your Mother and how the show failed her with its ending.
• Robin's stereotypically male personality is a contrast to Ted's "female" personality, as well as a result of childhood trauma from her upbringing.
• Robin finds lasting love not with Ted but with Barney, who is her match personality-wise.
• Robin comes from a long line of career women in pop culture who struggle to "have it all" (for example, Robin doesn't want kids but grieves the lost of choice when she discovers she cannot have children).
• The show reveals Robin as a content and confident woman in its final season only to betray her in its finale by having her ending up alone, without her friends for Ted to save in the future (after showing for years how incompatible they were).
• The show also betrays Robin by having Barney change for his child, implying Robin wasn't enough because she couldn't have children; as well as forcing her in Ted's life as "Aunt Robin."
• The show should have left her be as a confident career woman instead of insulting her and what she stood for.
