In the pilot, Penny (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Luke (David Henrie) sit on a couch, looking annoyed and restless. Fans immediately guessed the kids are looking into a video screen instead of a person sitting opposite them. Hence, there were speculations early on that in 2030, Ted Mosby is already dead.

But why are the kids in such a foul mood? It's all in the teens' ritual, other HIMYM fans guessed. There were also theories early on that the mother dies before 2030. HIMYM showrunners Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have reacted to this theory via Reddit. But does Ted or the mother really die in this hit CBS sitcom? How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 19 seems like a big clue. But it could also be a misdirection.

"I don't want you to be the guy who lives in his stories. Life only moves forward," the mother tells Ted in a flash forward in How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 19, titled "Vesuvius." Such a line is commonly associated to "last words." There are speculations saying there will be an eruption of emotions as powerful as the historic explosion of Mt Vesuvius.
