This Is Your Last Warning.
Just kidding, this is your last warning.
Are you sure?
There is no turning back now…
WE FINALLY SEE THE MOTHER!!!!!
Over 8 years ago we all sat down and tuned in to CBS for their new sitcom about a guy telling his kid’s the story of how he met their mother. In those eight seasons we’ve shared in Ted’s heartbreak as he sought out love with one wrong woman after another and each time we’ve always thought, “could this be it? Could this be the woman Ted has been looking for? His soulmate?” Every single time we’ve gotten out hopes up and each time they’ve been dashed. Well if finally appears as if our waiting has paid off because this woman is a bassist, has a yellow umbrella, and is headed to Farhampton.
For weeks now there’s been talk of finally meeting The Mother but after so long it was hard to believe that they were actually going to make that move. Because of that I watched the entire episode on the edge of my seat just waiting for them to cut to the credits and leave us hanging. Thankfully this fabulously lovely young lady stepped to the ticket window instead. It’s going to be a very long summer.
But who is this mystery woman, in real life that is? Well she might look familiar to many as she was most recently on Broadway in the musical production of Once.
However, if you are like me and it’s been way too long since you saw a show on the Great White Way, you might recognize this young lady from 30 Rock as the incredibly obnoxious ‘Sexy Baby’.
Her name is Cristin Milioti (I do love how HIMYM is not even listed on her IMDb page yet) and in my own humble opinion, she’s perfect. However, I think it would be wise for us all to take this with a grain of salt. How many times have we been certain that the evil writers had given away who the mother was only to have the rug yanked out from underneath us? So until next fall comes around the the final season of How I Met Your Mother gets underway with Robin and Barney’s wedding, it’s probably best to just assume it isn’t her. As many people of the internet have already pointed out, the credits just have her listed as ‘the girl with the yellow umbrella’ so there’s nothing stopping her from handing off the umbrella as she gets on the train or something.
Oh who am I kidding? It’s the mother!! We’ve finally met the mother!!
Now to settle down and dream of what an entire season of Ted dating the mother would be like. Could the series finale be a Ted Mosby wedding? Will the goat be there? So many questions, so many months before we get answers.
