I like victoria. she's cute and seems a good fit. I've pegged her as mom for a while now....hoping this continues next year and beyond.

And yes, we all knew Barney and Robin were it. not a big shock, but should be entertaining to see what happens to Quinn (who is hot as hell btw...i'll miss her).

If you were hoping that perhaps Barney was marrying Quinn, today's Fox announcement, where she was introduced as part of the cast of one of it's new shows should have spoiled that for you pretty good.

They've made it abundantly clear that Victoria is not the mom. The mom is Cindy's (Rachel Bilson) roommate and a student at Columbia as of Ted's first class. Ted has not yet met her, but will meet her at a wedding where he is somebody's best man (i.e. almost certainly at Barney's wedding)

It's Barney's wedding. That was the cliffhanger from last season. They're borrowing heavily from Lost, where they had a funeral scene in the Season 3 finale, but didn't reveal who was in the casket until the end of Season 4. Then they didn't reveal the circumstances until late in Season 5.

Absolutely no surprise that it was Robin. Who else could it be?

And since Ted meets the mother of his children at Barney's wedding, we know it isn't Victoria. Good Q&A here:

Very lame ending. No surprises there.

Although Barneys "Come With Me If You Want To Bone" line was great.

Plenty called it. It was beyond obvious. They really are dragging this on too long. But as its been said..he's gotta meet the mother soon and bone if in 2030 hes talking to his teen aged kids.

I don't think it would be that big of an issue if it was Quinn, I know the actress has a new show, but they can always do something like Mad Men.

And yeah, I like both couples: Ted and Victoria, and Barney and Robin.

If this next season is HIMYM's last, I wonder if CBS will try to create a spin-off where we see married life with said mother.

As we get close to the end, I'm beginning to think we're just going to get one scene with the mother in question and then a boom..."and that kids is how I met your mother." The end.

It's been discussed.

Just realized that everyone in the group goes through a failed engagement.

Marshall and Lily at the end of season one.

Robin and Kumar.

Ted and Stella

Barney and Quinn

What a bunch of losers.
