So Ted meets the Mother in four months! How are they going to sqeeze another season of the show in? The obvious choice would be to show the first year of their lives up til their wedding day, but I still have this feeling that Ted meeting the Mother won't happen until the last episode.
This was a really good episode. Lily was actually interesting for the first time since she and Marshall got married. It struck me that the entire show makes more sense as things proceed. Ted started the story of how he met the Mother by going all the way back to the day he met his first major love, the woman whom he would eventually have to give up and at whose wedding he would met his wife.
