I liked the season finale. The question we've been waiting for to be answered for eight years finally has... sort of.
So we saw the mother, but he (Ted) didn't meet her yet, which was slightly anticlimactic, although we are definitely nearing the moment.
Loved how Lily said "you'll meet her and she'll wear cute boots that I'll boorrow whenever I want because we're the same size" and then she walks up with her boots and yellow umbrella headed for Farhampton!
Such a great episode - hopefully Season 9 is worth the wait!
