Have We Already Met How I Met Your Mother's Mother?

Have We Already Met How I Met Your Mother's Mother?

The return of Ted's yellow umbrella and a certain female character on this week's How I Met Your Mother has gotten people all abuzz about whether she could be the mother in the show's title. While I'm not passing judgment on that particular matter quite yet (though my instinct is that she's not), the incident got me thinking about whether the mother will be someone we already know.

Do you think the mother of the title will be a character the show has already introduced, if only in passing? Or do you think it'll be someone we've yet to see?

I hope it is not Stella,she is boring.I liked Victoria! I think we will all be wrong,the writers are not going to make it that obvious.I really want to know who the mother is,it is driving me insane!

My other thing too is, that whomever it is will need to fit well with the already amazing cast. So, that's my big worry cause the chemistry has to be there, etc...

But last season when she left him at the altar he said stella couldnt be the mom because they showed another set of kids with light hair. Ooh and afrochic, that is an interesting twist to the story!! I dont think Stella is the one for Ted.

okay i don't think stella is the mom because of the way things were shown in like the it could've been sequence when they were about to get married....but what i think is going to happen is that ted will give stella his yellow umbrella then sometime in the future he will see a woman with a yellow umbrella and think it's stella and go up to talk to her, but it's really another woman that somehow got the umbrella, through stella or sound it or whatever, and then that's the mother. that's my prediction.

I'm with you guys. I don't like Stella and I don't want her to be the mom. Ted can't move to New Jersey. Also, I think that I need to pay closer attention to the reruns. popcorn19, I love your pic.

I don't think it's Stella, but someone that Stella introduces to Ted. Think about it: She feels really guilty about leaving Ted at the altar-- the natural move would be to set him up with a friend... a friend who may have always been perfect for him, but it wouldn't have worked while Stella was still with him--for obv reasons. Also that brings back the other issue with the prop dressing similarities between Stella's house and Ted's kids' future perch.---the framed letter?! I think that's more than just a fluke of the PD team...

It's definitely not Stella, rather, she will play a part in the mother being introduced to Ted. Stella was at that St. Patty's party, so she must have had friends (i.e. potential mother) with her. If it is someone from the past episodes, I'm hoping for Victoria.

I agree that it's not Stella but that she was somehow instrumental in Ted meeting the wife. They won't reveal that for a long time tho!

I can't wait for them to introduce the mother, just so we can keep moving on with Ted's story line. I can't stand that character, I am much more interested in all the other characters. And I miss Lily.

I hate that woman (in Scrubs too - I just want to punch her in the face) so I REALLY HOPE IT'S NOT STELLA! Aaaaaaaargh.

If it was Stella their kids would have been blonde, my guess is it's Danica McKellar.

It can't be. I hate Stella! I do think that she might introduce him to the mother. Since Ted was so vague when talking to his kid's I'm hoping that means she's not. Also wouldn't the kids have known when he was telling them about Stella in the past? Kids would know their Mom's name was Stella.

Maybe it will be someone obvious because the writers are sure that people are going to think it won't be, so they'll go with an obvious person. Mayyybe...

I think Stella is going to introduce Ted to someone. I am not a Stella fan at all. Also, I really think Lily needs to come back :( I miss her. I know she is on Pregnancy leave but seriously. COME BACK ALYSON!

I'm kind of hoping that it's someone new b/c I feel like Stella would be too obvious. I'm going to guess that through Stella, Ted meets someone new and perhaps that's the mother. Or maybe that meeting with a new person leads us to someone new. I guess it depends on how long this show is going to go on, otherwise Ted could be 50 by the time he has the kids!!!

the constant, "if it weren't for this you kids wouldn't be born" thing makes it seem as if Stella is the mother, but it doesn't seem right. i'm hoping Stella introduces Ted to a friend who will end up being the mother. *fingers crossed!*

i kind of do think that it's someone that's been on the show before. there's something to be said about having a character in the show and then to bring them back much later as the title character.....
