Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

The big question... What does Barney do? That's the very thing I wanted to know when they started asking questions. Glad they got to it. I was impressed with the answer.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I wasn't sure because it happened so quickly, but is Ted's daughters name Penny? I was also listening intently because I was wondering if they'd sneak in the Mother's name as well. No luck though, yet.

One thing I've always loved about the show is how they can change gears and get really dramatic too. As much as I've enjoyed this season so far, I think Marshal calling Lily out on leaving him and going to San Francisco was probably the best "dramatic" moment so far this season. We know Lily won't be gone too long because I don't believe she's going to miss the Wedding, but we'll see.

And I just looked it up, it appears next weeks episode is "How Your Mother Met Me." Could we finally learn her name!? Also I hope this is the episode where (I realize it is a rumor) the Mother is added into all of the "almost meetings" throughout the show.

Penny and Luke were the kids names.

Best episode this season so far!

Have we missed out on 8 and a 1/2 years of Barney being Jabba Drunk?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Oh, the Marshall and Lily fight. Ouch.

I'm going to be the only one, but I'm on Lily's side. I really didn't like Marshall bringing up the broken engagement. It was eight years ago. Is there a statue of limitations or does he just get to bring it up every time they fight for the rest of their lives? I feel like he's been holding it back so he could someday use it as a trump card, which--no.

Also, calling art a hobby? Wow, that was a bad place to go.

I'm not even sure Lily was wrong on the merits. Isn't she getting a crapton of money to be an art consultant? That's got to pay more than a low-level judgeship.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

At first I thought he only brought it up because she said she had never been that selfish with him, but then it did seem a bit like he had been holding onto it for a while. Very dramatic though. I guess Marshall is thinking long-term as well, even if it won't pay as much over a year it'll be a longer career for him.

I can't wait to see this ring-bearer

I was hoping the girl kid was Leia, since he'd "joked" about naming his kids that in the past. At least he got one of them...

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I think Marshall was totally justified to bring up San Fran, but not to call it her "hobby". That was just heat of the moment.

Once your loved one betrays your trust like that... can you ever TRULY forget and forgive it?

I've read some speculation that he named her Penny after the lucky penny from the episode of the same name, because it prevented him from leaving New York and thus being on the path to meet The Mother.

There's also some speculation that the mother's name could be Daisy since it's the name of the 20th episode of this season. I think that's a stretch though because Carter and Bays are really doing their best to keep her name a secret, I doubt they'd name an episode after her knowing that it would be online for everyone to see.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Well, the next new episode is supposedly the "How Your Mother Met Me" episode and showing some events from her perspective. It would be really awkward to have a whole episode about her and not hear her name used.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I am actually really looking forward to next week's episode. There are going to be a lot of callbacks, I think. (And I think we'll see that the mother is the one who dropped the lucky penny back in season 2.)

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

In season 2, Ted finds a penny from 1930-something on the subway. This leads to a chain of events which ultimately keeps Ted from making a flight to Chicago, where he was going to interview for his dream job. And if he had gotten the job, then he never would have met the mother.
