    ...and there she is.

    I have to say that I spent most of this episode disliking it, which is quite common for the show these days, but I didn't end up there. I was impatient with the artifice of Ted moving to Chicago, dreading the needless drama that's going to happen at Barney and Robin's wedding, frustrated by the manufactured controversy with Marshall taking the judgeship without even talking to Lilly.

    The last few minutes were shamefully manipulative... but it kind of worked on me. And I don't know why it was good to see Ted's future wife, since we don't know a thing about her yet, but it was nice to *finally* get on with that. Good on them for not dragging that reveal into next year. So I ended up feeling mostly OK about the episode.

    Cristin Milioti is the mom.

    I was the opposite - I liked the whole episode, which is unusual for me lately.
    Maybe it was the excitement to finally get to meet her.

    Young actress for the part but that doesn't matter. I mean it was a good enough cliff hanger for me cause now I want to know her back story! I have hope for the last season.

    She looks familiar, but I don't think I know the name. Going to have to look her up to see why I recognize her.

    She is a decade younger than Ted but only three years younger than Cobie Smulders although I'm not sure what the character ages are.

    And we meet the mother this season. Hmm. Still matching the article I read months and months ago that I've referred to over and over again.

    Months and months ago, this was going to be the last season, so of course the view was we would meet her now.

    I think she looks like a doughty Eliza Dishku.

    I liked the episode.

    She looks like a composite of Robin and Lily. You know if Robin and Lily had a baby.

    That is exactly what I was thinking!
    It must be intentional.

    She definitely looks like Lily crossed with someone--I thought that immediately--but I couldn't put my finger on it 'til Ment mentioned Jennifer Love Hewitt. Exactly!

    Found online:

    If you haven’t been to a Broadway show lately, you might recognize the Cristin Milioti from her work on The Sopranos (where she played Johnny Sack’s skinny daughter Catherine), Nurse Jackie (where she played a crackhead), and 30 Rock (where she played “sexy baby” comedienne Abby Flynn).
    Milioti will soon be seen on the big screen in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Kyle Chandler and Mathew McConaughey.

    So was the "Something New" referring to her? Or Marshall's new job? Or something else? Glad to finally see her. Given that they filmed a scene without her interacting with anyone, I wonder if they did it in secret with a skeleton crew so the word wouldn't leak.

    I'll stick with Rachel Bilson even if she is a lesbian.

    Are you sure it isn't Crirstin ? ;)


    I was waiting the whole episode for the reveal, hitting the play button to see that there was only a minute to go and still no mother, thinking they should rename the show "How I Screwed with the Audience".

    The other couple in the restaurant really annoyed the heck out of me. Considering how much Barney has messed with his friends I'd really hoped for more evil to fall upon them.

    You got that right. I gave up on HIMYM last year and watched last night's episode only to see who was cast as the Mother. Now that I've seen her, I'll probably skip all of next season until the episode where Ted actually meets her. However, I'll keep up on events, as I did this year, by reading Alan Sepinwall's recaps on Hitfix.
