Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

Tonight's the 1-hour season finale. I wonder what kind of twist or revelation they'll give us this time.

so i guess the only option is to do a 180 and reignite the Barney/Robin thing and in the final moments reveal the mother
Here is my guess... They'll reveal Barney's bride in the last two seconds of tonight's finale and it'll be neither Robin nor the stripper (I never even bothered to remember her name) and the first several episodes of next season will take place at the wedding/reception and will work out how Barney hooked up with her. Ted will meet at least two women at the wedding and then he'll spend the rest of next season going back and forth between them. The true mother won't be revealed until the very last scene of the series finale next year.

^ That's a pretty good way to go about things. I was wondering if it were possible to introduce the mother without the audience knowing it was her and that fits the bill.

Another way they could do it is go ahead and introduce the mother tonight or early next season, but not have Ted actually meet her. Spend all of next season getting to know the mother through Barney/Robin/Marshall/Lily flashbacks until one of them decides to set her up with Ted in the series finale.

Officially, they will have met in the series finale. Unofficially, we will have known her the whole season. Hilarity can ensue with them not meeting each other for a year despite knowing all of Ted's friends.

Is it just me or, since Avengers, is Robin like 10 times hotter?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

Well I was totally satisfied. Can't wait for next year. The faster Quinn disappears the better. And since they needed to kill a bit more time with Ted, bringing back Victoria was probably the best choice they could have made.

For me this show has always had the chance of falling the way of Lost and Battlestar Galactica in the end. I loved both those shows as they were going, but the last episodes were pretty well dissapointing. Having the final episodes leave bad tastes in my mouth somehow ruined the memories of both shows for me. But at this point I know that won't happen with MIMYM. Nothing will be stand in the way of me always loving this show.

Well, now we know one major plot point. The other is still up in the air.

I shrieked.

I gasped like a Japanese Schoolgirl at the big reveal in Avengers, but this was more like someone hit me in the foot with a hammer.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

I love Quinn and Barney! I still think it will be her. Barney and Robin don't work on any level. Why would they create essentially the perfect love story and then just destroy it? I think it'll be a double wedding, with Ted as the best man of both (we already knew he was going to be Robin's best man, and can assume he'd be Barney's). They like giving us a plot twist, and I think the premier will be bringing it back to being Quinn and Barney. He never loved Nora the way he did Robin (and she was awful, so good), but he never loved Robin the way he did Quinn. Even in the Star Wars Trilogy episode, when he was Robin, in three years he was going to be with a one night stand, but when he was with Quinn, he said he wanted to be with Quinn in three years.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

The season finale was surprising, but not surprising. Will they go through with it? Will things fall apart? The latter is a possibility. The wedding was described as a disaster. Plus, future Ted talked about Robin being a world traveller and presented her in such a way that she didn't seem to be tied down. I'd also mention the flash-forward where Barney was pretending to be on his death bed to get back at Marshall. Robin didn't look like a wife concerned for her dying husband, but I don't know what to make of that little side story.

She was always hot.

Hot is not a fixed point. It's a sliding scale.

Same with ugly.

Though plain is plain, and that's the entire point behind plain.

Or the worst... Victoria is easily the best mom candidate on the show ever, and if we see more of her and she's not the mother, then the mother needs to be that much better now. I hope they have a good exit strategy.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

We need more of this woman.

I love her.

And short of a zombie episode, I think they shot her in the face until she died too much, on Warehouse 13, so that's closed down for her.

I'm still pissed with how things finished for her on Good Morning Miami.

Girl never gets a break.

When they said "You haven't seen her in 8 months" didn't you just smell another baby?

um.

Cupcakes.

Victoria is the queen of cupcakes.

Isn't there another show on CBS about a girl and her cupcakes and another girl and their horse?

CROSSOVER!!!!

Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

Just because the wedding will be a disaster doesnt mean Barney and Robbin wont get married. Marshall and Lily's wedding was a disaster too. We know it rains on their wedding day so that alone hints there will be problems. That also fits into the theory I have that Marshall will dole out the final slaps in the series finale. That wont make for a very happy wedding day foe Barney.

I'm starting to wonder if Victoria will actually be the Mother. If they break up again, and meet miraculously again at Barneys wedding, Ter can tell the kids "and that is how I met your mother... And then met her again... And again... And one last time."
