How I Met Your Mother - OAD 5/13/2013

...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.

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.

Intersting article on what Season 9 could be. I'm guessing it will not make some people happy.

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.

i hope it's not a flash forward type of thing. i prefer the telling her back story, in particular how her and Ted's paths almost crossed.

No. The woman who played her is playing the role of the mother.

Yeah, because I'm the first person to call an actor by their character name/characteristic.

Marshall and his brother were very funny. All in all, not a bad episode.
I just hope that the above link is being misinterpreted. :fingers crossed:

"Kids, your mother was a very different person before I met her..."



Also, I found this funny. The mother is less than a year and a half older than the daughter...

Cristin Milioti (mother), born August 1985: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2129662

Lyndsy Fonseca (daughter), born January 1987: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0960912

Were people expecting the Mother to be revealed in this episode? If so, based on what? I had no expectations that we'd see the Mother in this episode. Given that they were obviously not going to show the wedding in this episode, I figured we'd have to wait until the first few episodes of next season to meet her.

New topic: Near the end of the episode, the graphic on the screen said "Friday, 10 am, 56 hours before the wedding." It then showed everyone grabbing their suitcases and getting in cars/cabs. The wedding is just on Long Island. It's not like they're getting on a plane and travelling to the location. Why was everyone packing up and heading to the wedding over two days early? Is this normal?

I went about 36 hours early to my brother's wedding site. The hotel was there and we had rehearsal dinner and the like.

As to your first question, it was stated somewhere by someone who would know and posted in threads here a while ago. It was before the show was renewed I believe. Hope that's specific enough for you!

Before the show was renewed for a ninth season, we all expected the end of this season to feature Robin and Barney's wedding and that's when Ted would meet the Mother. But when they extended the show, it seemed they gave themselves an out about whether we'd meet her at the end of this season. Since the renewal, I've never heard anything official or seen any promos saying to expect the Mother to be revealed, so that's why I was wondering why people were expecting it.

Just read Sepinwall's article about what next season is supposed to be. One word: UGH!!!

I could have sworn there was something more concrete than just assuming how it might work. When it was renewed, in particular, I thought there was an indication that we would meet the mother in the finale and then an uncertain subsequent season was to follow.
