According to TVLine in an interview done with the creators of How I Met Your Mother, season 9 will be "the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever."
So I guess that means that Ted won't really meet the Mother until the very end of season 9? And maybe that also means that the Robin/Barney wedding won't happen till the end as well? Don't know how I feel about that.
But then on another note, the creators also said that we will get to know the Mother better during season 9. So it's all still a bit mysterious as to how the next and final season is going to be played out. I, for one, can't wait.
I wonder what the Mother's name will be...
