The How I Met Your Mother series finale is still a distant dream, but thanks to TVLine, we now know one thing about it for sure: It will feature "the most awkward transition in series television."

Executive producer Craig Thomas explained to TVLine that the series will end with Josh Radnor (Ted) taking over narrator duties from Bob Saget.
That's right: The voice that has led (and misled) us through countless seasons as Narrator Ted will disappear, to replaced by the Ted we've come to know and love, closing out the narrative circle of the series.
To make an odd, though metaphorically important, transition potentially odder, Thomas also promises we'll see Josh in "some makeup," as he takes on the role of the much older Narrator Ted.
We predict this moment will move us to tears — the only question is whether they'll be from sentiment, or laughter.
