  • Hey everyone.

    So I was thinking the writers still owe us a few things. For example, the end of the slap bet and Robin's mother (though we'll probably meet her at or before the wedding)

    There's probably a bunch of loose ends that don't come to mind ATM but...

    What would you like to see before the end of HIMYM?

    • 1) Mainly how the previous episodes intertwine with the mother.

      Personally I'd like to see some small flashbacks from the mother during previous episodes that we didn't actually get to see her in. Maybe have stories (or flashbacks of memories) of her own that intertwine with these episodes (maybe not directly).

      i.e episodes like {season 3: 'No tomorrow' at St Patrick's day} {season 5: 'Definitions' } {season ?: That scene with the yellow umbrilla blowing down the street}

      At the moment, they're sort of like "plot-holes" in her character because they don't actually help define it. I feel like it would fleshed out her character more and give her a richer, in-depth history behind her as well, you don't wait 8 seasons just for a pretty face with no real backstory.

      2) How the mother's relationship with louis ends?

      Does she cheat with Ted? was the relationship already on the rocks? she looks too happy for it to be on the rocks and wouldn't that make Ted the rebound in that situation?

    • Have we heard anything about Robin's mother at all? Is she still living? We've met all of the other 4 characters' parents but I assumed Robin's mother had passed away as she is never mentioned.

    • Robin's on the phone with her in some of the earlier seasons' episodes. But I was wondering about her too. Guess we'll finaly meet Robin's mom in the final season, she can't be absent for the wedding.

    • What i would want to see are some flashforward from Ted and The Mother together throughout the season because as we know in the linear timeline he won't meet her before the finale. Also, I want all that Ted/Robin stuff done for good : the fact that he broke up with Victoria for her, Marshall and Lily's bet and the "Not yet" quote. This wedding has to get Ted over Robin for good before he meets the girl with the yellow umbrella. And fillers : Robin's bullfighter career, the remaining slaps, flashforwards of Robin and Barney, maybe a contest for Barney's love between his father and father-in-law, Ted's kids finally being release from this neverending tale and getting on with their own lives.

    • The writers mentioned at some point they "had something planned" for Robin's mother, either for this season or next. Since she didn't show up in S8, I'm guessing she got bumped for S9.

    • I still kind of like the post-apocalyptic ending jason segel had in mind. At the very least they should have it as an alternative ending in the season 9 dvd.

    • I am really looking forward to hearing Ted's toast at Barney and Robin's wedding. I'm really curious about what he will say, about whether he will break down or not (hopefully not) and whether he will have seen/noticed the mother by then; maybe she notices him when he's giving his toast. I can picture a lot of different scenarios by the time Ted gives his toast, so that's something I want to see

    • I really want to see just a ton of past reoccuring characters return! Like really random ones too, like Marshall's brothers or Scooter. Okay maybe not Scooter. 

      Also I want to see Barney's brother again! That dude was cool! 

      Another crazy idea: Part way through the season, the Mother (in 2030) comes home to Ted telling the story and starts telling some parts herself! I think it would be really awesome and also a great excuse to actually show future Ted!

    • One thing i like from this show, is that something they used to talk in the past is remembered in some time after.

      For example when Ted talks about Robin winning the break up bringing Gael, the guys said it was a competition, Lily doesn't agree, then when Simon comes in the Sand Castles episode they bring back again the topic of the winner of the break up, but here Lily's convinced :D

      There's also the girl call at 2 A.M.  when Robin accepts that when a girl calls a guy at 2:00 AM is for getting a bang :D

      What else you remember,

      Well they could if they make it so that Robin has another wedding in Canada for her family. If you remember Marshall and Lilly's wedding we never saw their parents

    • And the only time Robin was concerned about her mom was in the Glitter episode when he says to Lily that in her mom's X-Rays found something, the rest in the 2-3 times is mentiones seems Robin have some kind of bad blood towards her xD

      She is sometimes mentioned (and not in the past like when Robin says she went to live with her before becoming Sparkles) like once Robin says she spoke to her on the phone I think so if she still talks to her, her death would have been mentioned.

    • I seriously doubt they will kill The Mother. (The show is after all a business, and they won't screw up future dvd sales, etc. pulling a stupid stunt like that)

      I do think there will be some scenes in the flash forwards where you see Ted, The Mother, and The Kids interacting, where there won't be a dry eye in the viewing audience...But, it will be a happy ending thing.

      And Aunt Robin will just be Aunt Robin.

      I can't speak for anyone else but at least for me, if they killed her I would feel cheated in a way. I would certainly not be able to rewatch the episodes. It would probably piss me off too much. That is just me though.

      The mother will not be perfect though. They will have bumps on the road. You have to understand something that while they may not have been the nicest to Ted, they did care for him. No one is perfect and they had their reasons for doing what they did. The only real bitch out of all of his exes has definitely been Stella.

      I guess I see what you mean, I just hated being reminded of Victoria. I was reminded of the whole Emily/Ross/Rachel incident in Friends, it's exactly the same. I guess what I was trying to say was, yes the mother may not be perfect, but I don't think she'd do anything as awful as Ted's exes have done. And also I agree Stella was a HUGE bitch, but come on, let's not forget Karen and Zoey. I hated Karen the most.

      Karen was indeed one of his worst I will not deny that but I dont agree about Zoey. People like to say that she was selfish and she never cared about Ted's dreams but I see it differently. We will of course always side with Ted because we know him and we see the story through his POV. What we forget is the other side. Zoey's side. The Arcadian meant a lot to her so even though she was being selfish when it came to that aspect of their relationship, I believe Ted was just as guilty. I believe he made the right choice in the end of course but you see this scenario is very grey and not so black and white.

      She may not be the gf I like the most but IMO she should not be considered one of his bad ones. She was sweet in her own way and yeah she could learn to be more supportive but overall I do think she cared for Ted. Even after Ted sided against her at that hearing they had she still came back to him. I really do believe she cared for him.

      In an interview they talked about ways to get around the pineapple incident. Carter Bays told Jason Segel, "I think if we reveal it and you will know what i am taking about here...years from now...it might come out after the finale" then of course he doesn't say more and Jason says, "Oh yes... ok brilliant."

      Yes, I want to see flashforwards of Robin and Barney, especially Barney.  We know that LIly and Marshall grow old as evidenced by the college reunion and the letter to Marshall that Lily wrote in the event of her death that he reads and she walks in on him while he's reading it (because he wanted to see the dirty pictures).  We also know that Robin grows old enough to at least make it to Marvin's teenage years (we know from the episode where she explains to Lily what really happened when she watched Marvin while Lily chased after the bus to retrieve his paci).  I don't really recall any other flashforwards with her in them.  We just know that she travels the world (she's already done some of it) and that she appears in Ted's kids' artwork.  As for Barney, I've never really seen a flashforward with him IN it.  There was the one with the exploding meatball sub, but that couldn't happened too far into the future because none of the characters are aged.  And no mention of Ted's mother (who probably would've been there too if it happened further out) or of any of the kids (Lily and Marshall's, or Ted's).  We know he's in the trilogy 2015, and we know that he has his last cigarette in 2017.  These dates aren't far out at all.  What happens to him after that?  They NEVER mention him after that.  This bothers me a lot. 

      Of course, I want to see flashfowards with Ted and his wife and then with their kids.  The story wouldn't be complete without knowing more about their life together.

      Well I think he's there but maybe he doesn't do anything significant enough to put it in the flashforwards. I think R and B grow old together (at least until 2030) bc T is always referecing "Uncle Barney" and "Aunt Robin".

      1) We know the wedding happens, no one is freaking out enough to "not go through with this wedding" although R says so (I'm saying that bc of the flashforwards to when they're back from their honeymoon).

      2) I know I think a lot but, think; If they got a divorce, it's a whole other level then the dating break-up. It's a more important issue and I think it would divide the group. Future T says (I don't remember the ep) that they ALL gather at Uncle M and Aunt L's every year for thanksgiving. If R and B weren't together, they wouldn't both go to their friends' place (When R and T weren't talking anymore, they didn't even go to Lily's babyshower not to bump into each other).

      So, my theory is B and R grow old together and we're going to have some flashforwards later on!

Carter Bays told Jason Segel, "I think if we reveal it and you will know what i am taking about here...years from now...it might come out after the finale" then of course he doesn't say more and Jason says, "Oh yes... ok brilliant."

      There is the video to the interview I am talking about. Start at 5:50.

      They should answer it, very subtlel, in How I Met Your Father.

      I am really looking forward to hearing Ted's toast at Barney and Robin's wedding. I'm really curious about what he will say, about whether he will break down or not (hopefully not) and whether he will have seen/noticed the mother by then; maybe she notices him when he's giving his toast. I can picture a lot of different scenarios by the time Ted gives his toast, so that's something I want to see

      Agree. And i think he doesn't go so much into detail, what we see in the show are rather the memories he thinks of while telling the story.

    • I really just want to see Robin and Barney's wedding.  I don't know why there isn't more hype/specualtion about it.  I bet their respective freakouts tie into Ted finally letting go of Robin.  I think convincing Robin to go through with it and calm down wil force Ted to realize that Barney and Robin are perfect together and accept what's happening.

      Since the story is supposed to be told all at once it could be like 20 minutes he was away from a wait-for-it family picnic there all marshall Lilly and there kids, ted the mother and there kids, barney robin and there kids if they adopted, after he finishes the story he walks outside and marshall is like where you been buddy and they just talk and fade to black.

      What I'd like to see explained is: in episode 2.12 Lily proposes that she and Marshall light candles and put on classical music when they go on vacation in a beach house. Marshall replies that's not a good idea and that it's a "long story". To my knowledge, we never heard that story.

      Also, as someone already said, Ted getting over Robin once and for all!

      I've been wrecking my brain trying to imagine waht the authors could have in store to shock us in the series finale, and I have a theory about Ted divorcing the Mother and getting back with Robin (hence the explaining to the children) that I'm really dreading. If something like that were to be revealed, I'd be upset to say the least.

    • Ted divorcing the mother to get back with Robin would have to include her divorcing Barney and that would break the group up.

      LOL. Why do people always forget that Robin would have to hurt Barney as well? With 9 episodes left I really doubt we have enough time to cover that story arc. That will not happen.

      Bah. I absolutely want to know The Mother's name as I am sick of the awkwardness of having to write "The Mother/TM/YM/Yellow Umbrella/Cristin's character/etc." when discussing her around the blog. Being able to write Rose/Tracy/Zvenislava/Larry/etc. would be so much more simple.

    • That's true Unintended Curly Fry (great name BTW)! Here's a theory about getting to know TM's name that I would like: They meet at the station and start talking without even saying each other's name, the train comes and they seat next to each other keep talking and when one of them is about to get to his or her station or when they are about to say goodbye, one of them (it could be Ted as the mother made the move when they first kissed) or the two of them at the same time ask for the mobile phone number and she says: "By the way, I am ..." or Ted "you did not mention your name" they hug or they shake hands oreven give each other two kisses while we listen to "Kids, that is how I met your mother" fade to black. That would show that they are meant to be regardless of knowing each other's name. It would also be cool if they keep talking and talking and they miss their stop LOL and it is a funny story to tell to the kids.
