How I Met Your Mother Spoilers: Will We Meet the Mother This Month?

at . Comments

The May 16 season finale of How I Met Your Mother includes a wedding - nuptials teased in September's season’s premiere, and nuptials we still don't know who partakes in.

Barney? Robin? Punchy? Who knows. But the even bigger question is whether we will finally meet the Mother in this episode. The short answer, according to EW today, is ...

... No. In fact, we won’t actually see much of the wedding at all.

Viewers will actually just see a brief, wedding preparation scene revealing one half of who is tying the knot that day. Then we fade to black for the summer. Any guesses?

Plenty of Laughs to Go Around

This is, however, the wedding where we meet the Mother of Ted's kids. Eventually.

The event is set a year ahead of the show’s present, meaning we’re at least one full season away (possibly more) from meeting the girl with the yellow umbrella.

This final scene this season does set things into motion for the series' endgame.

“We can’t really talk about how long that endgame is going to play out, but the finale will set the ducks in a row for everything we’re going to see after it,” HIMYM creator Carter Bays explains, “leading up to Ted meeting the mother.”

Says star Jason Segel of the long route to the wedding and
the new mystery: “I think what people will be most curious about is how did we get from A to B.”

In fact, that journey - from May 16′s season-finale peek at who’s getting married to the TBD ceremony itself - is what will make up the bulk of Season Seven.

Beyond that, Bays is tight-lipped about when we’ll actually meet Ted’s wife.

No surprise there. The road to the finale begins tonight, as the first of the show’s last three episodes for the current sixth season airs at 8 p.m.

love this show !!! love all the stars. will keep watching, so glad there are reruns, i watch them all


how about meet the mother and continue the show until there are kids?! THats a real challenge nowadays!... it would be something like the awesome "Mad About You" show, with Hellen Hunt.


bleagh. it was such a disapointing finale. old jokes rehashed. I'm starting not to care who the mother is or who gets married.


I knew we wouldn't be meeting the mother anytime soon but the finale's exciting because of that wedding. I doubt it's Punchy though so I'm rooting for a Barney-Robin wedding.


WHAT!? just one year until we meat the mother. im sorry but that sucks. it meens that there is only going to be one season?! maby two! i dont care who the mother is i just dont want this show to end!!
