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

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!

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

^The B plot happened five years ago... but yeah

I had suspected it wasn't what it seemed since the crowd looked different between the two plots plus a gut feeling, but I didn't expect the ending.


The ending made me think about the day I met my wife- I drove from Cincinnati to DC, not realizing that somewhere along the way, I'd met the love of my life, who I wouldn't even date for another three years, that day.

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

Yet another great episode. The whole time I'm scratching my head, how is this episode happening in "reality" it's just totally out there, it's funny but it's destroying the sense of reality...

And then there's that great, touching twist at the end that it's Future Ted remembering that time and his lonliness and wishing he could have met her sooner... the scene where tearful Ted monologues to off-screen not-there Mother was really beautiful.

We learned a ton more about her too! If he's meeting her in 45 days I don't see how they could possibly not show her in the finale... I'm going to be really pissed if they don't...

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

That was a weird episode, but I like weird. They clearly wanted to try something different and cap it off with something a little "meta" with the singing. That made it all the better. The way Ted was talking to the mother though, made it sound like she's dead and he wished he could spend a little more time with her.

^I got that impression too. But yeah, I have to echo the comments that really was an excellent episode.

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

Loved this episode. The first half of this season, like the previous 2-3 seasons had really let me down, but this latter half reminds me why I loved the show to begin with.

And, by my calculations, we might see them meet in the season finale. May 13th is only 45 days from March 29. Sure, Ted said it was an April day, but he's telling it in the future, he could have been confused between end of March/beginning of April.

This episode was shown out of production order (no big deal, the network does that kind of thing all the time). But at least they took the time to get the 45 days number pretty close to accurate. The season finale airs on May 13th, seven weeks from now. There will be three skipped episodes, but there are still four more!

We already know that Ted doesn't meet her AT the wedding.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go8Jvbl3ew8

This implies he meets her after it (opened up bow tie and all). And at night, so at the end of a day. So if season 9 takes place during one day of the wedding, he would meet her only in the last episode.

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

Just went back and watched "Okay Awesome" from season one. Future Ted specifically says Coat Check Girl isn't The Mother. So much for that idea, but there's still that girl he randomly bumps into in that episode. I'm sure she was originally meant to be The Mother, weather they'll bring the same actress back after all this time or not is another question.

Yes, but we also know from "Band or DJ" that a week before the wedding, Ted arranges for her band to be at the wedding, and then we see a glimpse of Ted at the wedding, where he sees the Mother for the first time playing bass guitar.

He may not physically meet her/talk to her until later on that train platform, but he for sure sees her on stage.

So many good episodes lately, and then we got this one. I am going to answer the phone with 'Ahoy' for the rest of the week.

Well, it seems they're throwing the Marshall runs for Judge plot line out the window...

Wasn't too impressed with last night's. it was okay at best. Some funny moments, but few and far between.

I still don't buy the idea of being an art consultant as a dream job of Lily's. She isn't being an artist. It's kinda like someone who wanted to be an architect designing homes from childhood into late 20s, working as a realtor and calling it a dream job.

How long as Marshall even been an attorney? Under NY law, most judicial offices beyond town justice require at least five years admission to the bar.
