Confirmed Season 9 Concept

Something NewThere was a brief moment Monday night whenHow I Met Your Mother was maybe solving all of its problems by introducing us to the mother. She’s played by Cristin Milioti! We actually saw her! Maybe now the show can go back to its more-pleasant roots and tell us a delightful love story! Alas, it is not to be. CBS president Nina Tassler cleared up some of the speculation about what would happen in the show’s ninth and final season. She tells TVLine that the whole season will indeed span just the 56 hours before Barney and Robin’s wedding, as some had feared, and will be about “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So, they each meet her independently before he does.” So if you were tired of seeing Ted Mosby be such a weenie, tough tacos for you.

David Henrie Talks HIMYM Ending

The insider did a great little interview with David Henrie, who you may know as Ted’s son. HE talks about a recent project called Secret world of Arrietta AND says a little about the HIMYM ending:

Insider: It’s funny because while you are growing up, How I Met Your Mother has kind of frozen you and Lyndsy Fonseca in time. Is it true that when you guys filmed that opening in 2005, you also filmed scenes for the series finale so it made chronological sense?
David: That is true. Yup! Everyone always drills my brain for that. It was just me, Lyndsy and the two showrunners. They rolled the cameras and literally evacuated set. Once everyone left and it was just us four, they told us what they thought would happen. We shot it and signed our lives away, so I won’t be disclosing anything, but we shot what could be the ending to the show.

Insider: Without risking your life, do you think fans will be happy with the ending?
David: 100 percent! It’s a great ending to the show. It’s solid and well-thought out from the very beginning. We’ll see if they end up going with it, but I think fans would really appreciate the ending.

Does this mean anything for us or at least help put your mind at ease? Either way, check out the full interview: David Henrie Talks to the insider

More on Who Is the Mother from HIMYM

about.the.motherThe biggest question on the minds of most How I Met Your Mother fans is simple… Who is the mother? Considering the response, let’s consider part one of this the article: About the Mother from How I Met Your Mother, I talked about what we know through Season 3.  With that as a reference, Let’s take another look at the mystery of the mother. (ps, I’ve closed comments on the old post 650+ is too much to read.)


FUN Facts (let’s have fun with these):

  • She was in the Economics 305 class, when Ted gives his Architecture lecture. (ref. s05e01, “Definitions” )
  • She was at the St. Patty’s day party where Ted was being a jerk and originally found the Yellow Umbrella (ref. s03e12 “No Tomorrow”)
  • She is Cindy’s (Rachel Bilson) room mate (ref. s05e12 “Girls vs. Suits” )
  • The mom now has her Yellow Umbrella back (ref. s05e12 “Girls vs. Suits” )
  • He doesn’t wait days to call (ref. s04e21 “Three Days Rule” )
  • Ted says he meets her the wedding from the Season 6 Premier. We know he is the best man at eh wedding and that it starts to rain and he forgot his umbrella. No mention of whose wedding, but it’s truly a big day. (ref. s06e01 “Big Days” )
  • Ted has not met her before “Lucky Penny”. Ted says his destiny was to stay in NY because if he hadn’t he never would have met their mother, while showing a wedding glimpse. (ref. s02e15 “Lucky Penny”)

About the Mother from How I Met Your Mother.

***Thanks for all the comments, but I’m closing down commenting on this article. It’s at over 650 comments and that’s a ton to read, People are saying the same things over and over. In the spirit of keeping the conversation going, I’ve summed up the bulk of the post and what people are saying here and have started a new thread called More on Who is the mother from HIMYM.

Like most posts tat I really enjoy it’s overly in depth, check it out and let me know what you think!


I feel that a big question for How I Met Your Mother fans has always been “Who is the mother?” And while we don’t have a definite answer, we can take what we do know so far and begin to formulate some ideas. This is a long one so go grab a drink and pull up a chair. By the way, HIMYM returns to us on March 17th! So hopefully soon there will be more to add to this list! Disclaimer: I love theories, but I have not posted anything here that cannot be backed up. Enjoy!
Who we know is NOT:Picture 4

1. Robin is not the Mother. We learn this in the first episode and and it is reconfirmed countless times in all 3 seasons. No matter how much people “want it to happen, ” it just won’t. Get used to disappointment. In fact, for those still
