That was an awesome episode. Essentially none of it occured. At one point I was convinced Coat Check Girl was the Mother. She was at the Club that night. You could fudge that they "didnt meet" until years later when they met again. I was expecting the camera to turn as Ted spoke to The Mother and reveal her to be Coat Check Girl. Since it wasn't real it would have been another way to inch us closer to the final moment. I was about to cry with excitement think we'd finally see her. I still wonder if it might end up being CCG. I loved the DVR moment of Robin's story about her dad. And the song at yhe end was amazing. 4 star episode for sure!
