Well he couldn't get the year straight about when that goat attacked his apartment.

They're being vague with the dates, but we know for sure the baby is born in 2015. Even assuming the baby is born in late November and they watch Star Wars in late December, that means she's pregnant by March at the latest of 2015. This wedding takes place in Spring 2013.

Also, makes no sense that Ted would go to Farhampton three times in less than two years... He should propose on the one year anniversary of meeting her... In 2014, when they go to Farhampton.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I was already to say this was a time wasting episode showing the weakness of this real time format and where the hell is Mother.... and then they do a flashforward showing Ted proposing to Mother in the lighthouse. I am sated

Or Ted got the date of the proposal wrong in that conversation.
Possible, but they probably would have hinted at that.

My initial thought was that the mother had already had the kid when Ted proposed. I figured that they were back in Farhampton 2 years later around May 2015, shortly after Star Wars night which I figured was also in or around May 2015. But reviews suggest that Ted actually said they were back in Farhampton "not even 2 years later" and that the trees appeared to be turning red and yellow, suggesting that it was fall of 2014. And now people are putting Star Wars night at the end of 2015. Looks like we've got a year's worth of wiggle room.

We don't know when Star Wars night will be, but the original episode aired in April 2012. They've got wiggle room, but certainly not much.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Ok. I know i'm an outlier here, but, I am getting really disappointed with this season. I really really really hated the flash forward. I don't know the Mother so I have no reason to really care about the mother. The mother felt like any of the other girls that Ted has met. The scene was a total dud for me. I would rather have not seen her at ALL with Ted until he finally meets her. THAT would be special. This... this is the first time we are meeting the two of them together... now when they meet... I don't know.

I think the flash forward was a mistake and weird. If they wanted the mother in this season, they should have her interacting with the other cast members first, so we can get to know her and care about her. Right now, I'm being told I should care about her. And I don't.

You what seems entirely unlikely... The mystery surrounding Robin's mother... What if Maple syrups is the secret to eternal youth and the mother is also Robins mother who also seems to be a mysterious character?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Didn't like the date part of the 2 years later flashback, should have been 1 year. Screws the timeline, and at best forces her to get knocked up immediately after the engagement, and into a maternity wedding dress to make the timeline sort out.

Just saying '1 year later' would have made it work better, and lets them get married before she has to be pregnant...

If this actually happens, I will forgive the HIMYM creators for all of their missteps and dud episodes over the years.*

Robin's mother = THE mother = genius.


*Of course, my blanket absolution excludes the numerous occasions when Ted has re-kindled any romance with a female guest star (especially, Jennifer Morrison) or a series regular (Robin) after breaking up with them the first time and telling us (the audience and his "kids") that this woman is NOT the mother, in no uncertain terms.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

In theory... 5 or 6 drinks and she falls asleep somewhere for 20 hours.

Either the drinks there are really watered down, or Lilly's liver ain't lilly livered.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

They seem to be pushing the timeline a little, but if she was pregnant or just about to get pregnant when the proposal happens in the spring of 2015, the daughter would be able to be born sometime before they watch the Star Wars films, awfully late in the year.
