We've given you three days to watch last week's How I Met Your Mother, "Right Place Right Time," and we no longer feel guilty about discussing the surprise ending. Sarah Chalke reprised her role as Stella.
In his latest spoiler column, Ausiello confirms that Stella is not the mom. I mean, duh, they showed what Ted's kids would have looked like if he married Stella.
However, Carter Bays did tell him that, "We haven't talked to her or her people about it yet, but there's something very exciting about next season [involving Stella] that will sort of be alluded to in next week's episode."
Bays continues, "We're excited to see how it'll play out next season."
As far as next episode goes, Bays teases, "It's a real good, classic How I Met Your Mother. There are a few episodes of this show that, when we were shooting it, felt like an old movie. You just want to put it in black and white. Next week's episode felt like one of those."
