    So is she officially the real “mother”?

  • Rebecca

    Yep. Looks a lot like Lily, doesn’t she?

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    I am expecting a 4 or above for the Season 9 premier. Ted is meeting the Mother, it’s the final season, it will be huge. I also expect a 4 point for the series finale.

    I hoped to see M&M 18-34 ratings, but I guess these are too weak to post.

    If she’s really the mother, then I would suppose they would drag on “HOW” exactly they meet.

    Maybe there’s truth to the rumor that the whole final season will only takes place for about 2 – 3 days , ala “24”?
