    Anyone else thnk that we should meet the mother this season and next season ends with Ted proposing to her? And then a flash forward sequence showing all the events leading to his current reselling of the story??? I.e wedding, birth of kids, running around the home as toddlers etc?

    I hope the last thing ever to happen on the show will be the final slap from the slap bet.

    Haters ‘gon hate. If this show was such a waste of time for you, why waste more of your time reading articles and posting comments about this show for Christ’s sake. Keep your rude comments to yourselves coz honestly, we, the fans, dont care about what you think. It just sucks reading your snide comments on this page. Please just let us be and go on with your all-knowing, cool lives.

    Looking forward to another season!!! Cheers!

    Noooooooooooo!!! I love this show!! I really dont care about the mom anymore they are all funny.

    I love this show. I guess some fans feel like the show is losing its touch, but I don’t. My favorite episodes have been seeing Marshall wanting to be a judge, seeing Lily make her artistic dreams a reality and having Barney and Robin get together. I see how the show seems like it has lost its touch as Ted hasn’t moved forward, but I hope that we meet the mother and not only just see her, but get to know her. That’s what this whole show has been about and honestly that would be the only thing that could upset me. I want to see them date, be in love, Ted finally find love, 8 years I’ve waited to see that. I want to see the same humor, running jokes, characters growing and Ted finally be complete in his love life, basically the focus of the whole show. I really love this show.

  7. misty says:

    Thank God! I love this show but for years I’ve been dying to know who she is. I’m upset the show will end but at least the big question will be answered!! I hope we get to see the kids ;)

  8. Neve says:

    I love the show with every fibre of my body and really don’t want it to go, but I need to no who the mother is. Ik some ppl think its stupid but I think it’s the best show out there. Before it goes I need to watch them all beginning to end. I didn’t really watch it till around a year and a bit ago but I’ve grown to love it and now I am addicted. I’m sure I’ve not seen them all so I’m going to search everyone till I’ve watched them all!!!

    i think it’s robin’s friend at maclaren’s pub. season 1 episode 1. the blonde girl wearing beige coat that she(robin) was talking to when ted first laid eyes on her…ted thought “…and there she was” “…see that girl, i’m gonna marry her someday” but of course he was referring to robin not knowing that it’d actually be the other girl. at a later scene the blonde woman and three other friends of robin were at round table waiting for robin to join them. the faces of the three friends were shown but the blonde girl was either on a side or back view. there was a very brief second that the left side of her face was shown but too quick to recognize.

    and she’s at the wedding so she’s got to be robin’s friend right? coz if she’s barney’s friend then he would have recognized her during the st.patty’s episode.

    what do you think?

    • Neve says:

      I don’t think that it will be as when he talked about Stella and how the kids would have looked if they got married, the kids had blonde hair probably meaning the mothers hair is brown like her children’s but who knows?

    • Shy says:

      Yeah but when he dated Cindy,her roommate was the girl that he was gonna marry because the had much in common with her.

  10. Shy says:

    I am just super excited to see the last season! I don’t even care what happens, because I just love the cast, they are great together.

  11. liz says:

    My theory…. Ted’s favorite book is Love in the Time of Cholera. Read it, torturous tale of two people who love each other as youngsters but never end up together until they are old. I predict in the end we will find out who the mother is but Ted ends up with Robyn. The whole show has been about their relationship since day one. So i bet Robyn goes and sits on the couch with the kids in the last episode as step mom aunt Robyn. We’ll see!

  12. Greg says:

    I just think after soo many years of stretching this meeting the mother thing. I just hope we actually get to know her a bit… See the romance blossom. Just, after soo many years we should get a really good idea of who this woman Ted finally falls for. I do also agree show has bounced back from last year… which was pretty dull with the exception of Barney.

  13. Believeit says:

    It’s going to be Salme hyak

  14. Mohammad Ali says:

    it was a nice comedy of all time. i really don`t want to know who the hell is the mom, but i will be delightful if the comedy keep going. i really can`t stand not watching it, so plz keep making this serial.

  15. Shorty says:

    Barney is hilarious! I found this show only a year ago and really started to enjoy watching it. I like the characters, but I hate teds face. Idk why. Just wish it was a diff person playing that character. Feel the same way about zach braff on scrubs. Anyways. I am really tired of being jerked around about who the mother is! Can’t believe its been on for 8 years. That’s crazy!

  16. zda says:

    Cliched, contrived and just plain crap…
    U can’t honestly say its original, can you? Theres
    Nothing in the show I haven’t seen in other sitcoms…
    Time to call it a day
    Surely….?

  17. It’s going to be end of mine day, except before ending I am reading this enormous paragraph to improve my know-how.

  18. Jennifer says:

    Season 9 is going to be legen….wait for it….cuz we have….dary! Can’t wait to see it

  19. Admir says:

  21. Louise says:
