If this is a mother I'm disappointed. If mother is not Robin, THE MOTHER should be prettier, cuter than Robin. Someone like Zooey Deschanel ... Nina Dobrev... someone really spacial, pretty... This girl is so ORDINARY. I have impression Ted is settling down with this girl, because it's time.. Even Stella and Zoey were better choice... or Barney's Nora.. she is real woman.. THIS IS BRUNETTE LILLY with ugly teeth !!!!!

This season was positioned as if Robin and Barney's wedding was going to be the climax. i.e. the final episode or final two episodes were going to be the wedding and post-wedding. I'm pretty sure Ted's kids are going to die of old age before he actually finishes his stupid story.

am i the only one who didn't like the ep all that much. other then seeing the mother everything else was really anti climactic. after that massive speech in time travellers i was hoping the finale would be at the wedding and ted meeting her for the first time or something along those lines so for season nine they could shown us ted winning her over,wedding proposal etc

"The Mother" looks like a tiny, perfect boho-version of Lily/Robin. :P

Well I hope people will now agree with me that the previous episode was a waste that could have been used to set this up much better, having said that this average episode is still one of the 'best' of the season.

I might be another trap...maybe she's taking the umbrella to her band mate. Icheked the first episode and the shoes and the purse are different, but i do not dislike the girl at all (at least at first glance)

In terms of delivering... Narrator Ted hasn't actually confirmed that this is her. I think I might have been more satisfied if he outright said it was their mother. It's as if they threw something out there to see how people would respond. That and if they decide to recast the mystery lady then they have "a reason" to convolute and draw out the story further. This has degraded into such a cowardly and manipulative production.

The boots and handbag in this episode are what she's wearing/carrying BEFORE the wedding. The boots and handbag seen in the first episode of season at the Farhampton train station are from AFTER the wedding - Ted is in his tuxedo sitting in the Farhampton station during the scene from the first episode.

A possible outside shot - it's really (Casey Wilson) Krirstin, who we also met tonight, and this other random girl is just someone bringing her roomie's bass and yellow umbrella to the gig in Farhampton as a favor because of the drama at the restaurant with the 7-year reluctant fiance somehow causing her to forget the guitar. It would be fitting that Robin/Barney have already had a run-in with Krirstin (Casey Wilson) at dinner.

I don't want to under-rate Cristin Milioti, not at all... But oh boy, 8 seasons of concentrated hype, and they end up throwing us a "random" girl? like I said, no offense intended, she's really pretty... But I wanted her to be someone we already met... Someone meaningful...

Honestly, I'm happy it's someone we haven't met before. I think it would undermine the whole journey if it ended up being someone famous - people would just focus on the fact that Ted was marrying a famous person and wouldn't end up caring as much about the upcoming journey of how he meets her and falls in love with her.

It was obvious that it wouldn't be someone that we had already met.

She's pretty, really, but I'm sure there was an episode where we got a glimpse of her hair, and it was blonde... And like you say: the boots, the purse... They just don't match :|

Also, people can change their hair color, you know - just because we might have seen some of her hair in the past, that means nothing now.

ok i see you've made up your mind, and apparently you're right, but you gotta admit that in himym everything can turn out to be something enterely different. I don't like the krirstin idea someone threw above, she's not "Front porch" material, whereas this girl totally seems to be.
I don't know, it was just a few seconds, but didn't you guys feel that you could fall in love with this girl?: her smile, her cuteness, instead of "model" or "movie star" beauty, her sweet voice.
I don't trust the writers anymore so i'm still defending the inconsistencies in the shoes and bag: if she changed them where are the boots and the other purse? on the wedding band's van? she left them to a friend? because she's not carrying any luggage (so she didn't bring them to the wedding either) ,just the bass guitar case.

Just remember that the scene in the train station takes place on Friday, 56 hours before the wedding (according to what it says right before the scene starts). Plenty of time for her to change.

Yeah, it's not. There were rumors for weeks that they would finally reveal the mother tonight, and they delivered.

Cristin Milioti. Strange pick.

In helping her become what could possibly be the most googled woman of the night it looks like they got a good pick.
She's an unknown which I was always hoping for so they couldn't blow the surprise and the actress will never over shadow the character.
I've seen some people comment on her looks. I can kinda see where they're coming from as her first appearance didn't make her look that flattering. But wow... In some photos she looks amazingly pretty.
Acting wise turns out I've seen her in The Good Wife and 30 Rock and she can do barmy. Hopefully Mrs Moseby isn't too insane but we do know she's supposed to be a little odd so she'll get that part sorted and keep her below the Hot Crazy scale.
Then there are the searches that also provided videos of her singing. She has a lovely voice and to quote Ted its hauntingly beautiful. Bring on the singing Muffins.

It doesn't seem like a strange pick. I'm not saying she's amazing or perfect cause she's only said said one line but so far on this low level I like the choice. It looks like they thought about it and get the right girl and I'm looking forward to see more of her.
