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

^ All they have to do is push the wedding to 2014. Guess we'll see what they actually do.

The idea of having Ted meet several women and the audience guessing which one will be the mother is a good one though.

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

I'm assuming the wedding will be in the season finale and he meets the mother. I wouldn't be surprised if they went several episodes with him dating this new woman but they never show her face or something stupid.

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

Oh god they'll probably do that for like half a season or something :-x

Remember that did that with Stella in Season Three for several episodes.

Hey, I just realized something. Why did the series begin with Ted meeting Robin, if the story is him telling his kids how he met their Mother? Because he meets the Mother at Robin's wedding!

That's been the running theory. Robin must be instrumental to Ted meet the mother, because she makes a good starting point for his story to the kids. Otherwise, we would have started the show with Ted meeting Barney first (and by the time the series started, Ted had been friends with Barney for 4-5 years already).

Maybe Ted isn't actually the father of the kids.

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

He's kidnapped them and they're chained to the wall in the basement where they have been for the last 7 years listening to this story in real time?

If they break character or age naturally, they get the hose.

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

I like the suggestion of several women Ted meets.

Problem is, that they already narrowed it down to one of the musicians...

So, what? Ted dates a whole female orchestra and we won`t find out which one owns the yellow umbrella until later?

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

Conductors work their way through their Orchestra all the time, why can't the orchestra work it's way through Ted?

Besides remember how over the top they were about having a threesome FIRST?

At their age and they haven't had group sex yet?

Ridiculous.

It's the bass guitar player! Unless Barney has a group of bass guitar players at his wedding...

We also know she was at the train station with Ted, as per the Season Premiere. Thematically, it would be nice for the Season Finale to be Robin's wedding/almost wedding and end with the scene from the premiere. Next season could pick up from there and tell the story of Ted courting the mother, with the requisite break-up for the mid-season/Christmas Break point, and then have the second half of the season showing Ted trying to get back in her good graces.

It kinda needs to be, because it would be an incredible cop out if they didn't. They spent so much time on women that were never going to be the mother, but the mother would then be like, "Oh look, here she is, and The End."
It would almost be like a show about a ship flung into a faraway quadrant of space, trying to find its way back to Earth ending like, "Oh, look, there Earrth is, and The End."

Sounds more like a show about a superpowered guy angsting around for 10 years and then putting on a red/blue suit and flies away. The End.

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

In Farhampton, it is shown that while Ted is waiting for the train back to the city at the Farhampton train station, after Barney and Robin's wedding, the mother also comes there, holding up her yellow umbrella in the rain. Craig Thomas confirmed in an interview that this is the place where Ted and the mother finally meet. http://www.seattlepi.com/entertainment/tv/tvguide/article/How-I-Met-Your-Mother-Boss-on-Premiere-s-Big-3891090.php


No more trickery apparently. They ought to introduce her this finale.

Either way, the payoff for an entire show never fully happens.

Futurama does a pretty good job at continuity and payoff. There are numerous examples of things that occurred in past episodes, that if you go back and check you can see the foreshadowing. For example, Nibbler being the cause of Fry freezing himself in the first place. If you go back and watch the pilot, you can see Nibbler's shadow under the desk.
