‘How I Met Your Mother’ Season Finale: Did Alyson Hannigan Reveal the Mother’s Appearance?

How I Met Your Mother Season 8 Finale Something New Alyson Hannigan
CBS

Only one episode remains in ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ season 8, and now more than ever fans of the series are left wondering if next week’s finale episode “Something New” will deliver on the show’s promise — introducing Ted’s bride-to-be at Barney and Robin’s wedding. This past Monday’s “Something Old” saw things leaning in either direction, but has series star Alyson Hannigan confirmed the mother’s appearance? Get the latest on the ‘HIMYM’ finale inside!

The prospect of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ fans finally meeting the woman in question has become something of a running joke with each finale, though the stakes have never been higher as series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have teased a major change for the unexpected ninth and final season ahead. Previews of next week’s finale have scarcely shown even an ounce of Barney and Robin’s wedding, said to be when the titular meeting takes place, but series star Alyson Hannigan may have confirmed the mother’s presence in “Something New.”

“I had always thought that the last shot of the whole series was going to be the reveal of the mother,” Hannigan said during an appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’ “And, without CBS coming and killing me, I just want to say that I’m glad I didn’t bet on that.” Speaking with reporters earlier this year, Thomas previewed that the new season would feel strikingly different from the others, so much so that “it’s going to be a new way to tell the story. You’re never going to mistake a season 9 episode from one of the previous eight.”

Well, what say you? Do you think ‘How I Met Your Mother’ will finally live up to its name, given the unplanned extension into a ninth season? How would you like to see the story come to a close? Watch Hannigan’s interview below, and give us your predictions for the May 13 finale in the comments!
