  • Tonight’s “HIMYM” is tltled “Bass Player Wanted”, which says to me that it’s going to be a big Mother episode.

    • I hope you’re right! I’m so glad Marshal will finally be there! That took way too long!

      • Fingers crossed. But I think this guy is the connection to the Mother, possiible current/ex boyfriend.

        • I think you may be right – tonight’s episode {Bass Player Wanted} may introduce the Mother’s ex- (or current) boyfriend to Ted and gang. I’m also curious how the info. of Ted’s move to Chicago may play out – preview clip shows Barney asking Ted about Chicago.

          The bar on these HIMYM pre-Christmas/fall-finale episodes has been set very high, so I’m hoping tonight’s show will be a good one. Prior pre-Christmas episodes have been some of my favorites – ‘The Last Page/Pt2′ and ‘Symphony of Illumination’. Those two will be very hard to top.
