@SoonToBeMrsD921:  I thought it was the best episode of the series! They did such a great job and I loved that you had to be a real fan to get the whole thing. Ted has mentioned Mom’s singing breakfasts before. I about died when she knew The Naked Man! And I love that they give a solid explanation for why she is still on the market too. I kind of like that they both are JUST moving on from someone before they meet. At first that bugged me about the Robin/Ted story but sometimes I think that’s how it happens. As soon as you’re really over someone (or something)- the life you were meant to have moves in. 

Can you tell I love and identify with this show WAY too much?

How long was the episode?  My DVR cut off at 31 minutes.  Was it an hour?

It cut out after that guy proposed to her at Southfarhampton.

Yes!  Yesterday was SOOOOO much better than the rest of the season.  I thought it was really neat how they tied her back in with so many close encounters and to other people we’ve seen before.

@KateByDesign:  It was the usual 30 minutes.  Odd that your DVR would cut if off there!

@KateByDesign:  Oh weird. Yeah you missed several minutes, but it was only 30 minutes long. Watch it on cbs.com

@SoonToBeMrsD921:  Honestly… I LOOOVE the show but think Ted’s kind of a douche. I kinda think the Mother is too good for him!

It made me cry.  (And I am not a TV crier)…but that song……sigh.

 

my SO realized that they had been playing a slower piano version throughout the episode.  Love the idea of another Maclaren’s (which just reminded us of the burger joint with the green door!)

I am really impressed with how much I already like her.  It takes alot for fans to really believe she will fit in on the front porch…

@SoonToBeMrsD921:  I thought it was so good! The rest of the episodes this season have been kind of annoying one-offs, meant to drag the wedding weekend out as long as possible. I mean come on, they have been talking about this wedding in some form or another for the past three seasons! I really just watch out of habit now, but this episode really started bringing everything together. I like the mother so much more than Ted, haha! Him listening to her play that song on the hotel balcony was really moving somehow though!

@steph_lady:  There’s probably going to be a spin off with an entirely different cast called How I Met your Father that’s based at the other maclarens!

@steph_lady:  I said the same thing to DH.. It crazy how much I like her already! 

 

I love this show and dread it’s end so much.  You just kind of don’t want them to meet Because it’s the end, but at the same time you can’t wait… A fantastic way to write a show! Uggggg!!

always a tearjerking show!

LOVED it. 

It makes me wonder how the same show writers/producers made the crap that was the rest of this season so far and then pulled out that wonderful episode.

It was about time for them to let us get to know her!  At first it was just like really? Plz explain.  So finally I feel something for her other than “meh”!  I teared up a bit too, and I loved all the tie-backs.  Best episode of the season, for sure.  I was totally burned out on “wedding weekend” storylines!

I LOVED the episode. It was exactly what I hoped it’d be after an AWFUL season (and last 2 seasons, honestly) so far. The mother singing at the end while Ted listened was beautiful. The whole episode brought me back to the reason why I used to love this show so much, and now I’m excited for the finale. I just hope the rest of the episodes remaining don’t revert back to the crap this season has been – but I’m not holding my breath about that lol
