How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Premiere Recap

What Do You Think of the Mother?

This week's season premiere of How I Met Your Mother isn't just monumental because it's the last season premiere the series will ever have; it's special because it's the first time we get to meet Ted's future wife, aka the mother of the title, played by Cristin Milioti. We've been waiting eight years to meet her, and we finally get more than just a look at her. Though we still don't know her name, we get acquainted a little bit when she interfaces with Lily in a chance meeting on a train, and we see her being sweet with Ted in a flash forward. We learn some things about her, like she makes great cookies, loves road trips, and has a pretty good sense of humor. All in all, it's a brief meeting, but I found her pretty endearing. What do you think? Has Ted settled down with the right girl?

I actually really liked her. I found most of Ted's relationships annoying but she was quite endearing, as you said.

I wish i knew what her name is. I wish they could tell us what her name is. I don't know when they're going to us what the mother's name is. In a few episodes or the series finale. I wish they could tell us, when were expecting give us her name. She is a delight, but we still have to know a lot about her. She does look like the daughter on the show, lyndsy fonseca. I also have to admit she is a combination of Cobie Smulders and Alyson Hannigan. But she l could be wrong. I really do like her, but I still have to know her.

The scenes with her and Lily on the train bugged me a little (mostly because I don't like that they are sort of making her out to be the female Ted), but I really enjoyed the flash forward. Glad that they're giving us a glimpse of the actual relationship!
