Time hasn't done very much to heal the sting of 'How I Met Your Mother''s series finale ending "Last Forever," which ended up confirming some of the fans' worst fears about the series' mythology, and quickly blew past the mother of it namesake. We've heard before about a few scenes cut for time, but series star Alyson Hannigan revealed one brief, but important snippet that may have gone a long way toward placating those upset by the ending.
‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 9 recalls its 23rd and final episode of the final year in “Last Forever,” as Ted finally completes the story of how he met the eponymous mother, detailing the history of his closest friends' lives after Barney and Robin's wedding.
Last week’s ‘How I Met Your Mother’ installment “The End of the Aisle” saw Ted revealing a surprising secret in his attempt to calm Robin down before the wedding, while Barney turned to Marshall and Lily for inspiration in writing his last-minute vows. So how does the latest episode bring the series to a close?

Admittedly, I’m feeling much more melancholy today about the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ series finale than I expected. Which, on the surface, makes little sense because, boy, Season 9 has been a slog to watch. (I was once a religious viewer, but now it’s come to the point where, over this past weekend, I had to participate in a ten-episode marathon just to get caught up for the finale.) Look, I’m pretty late to the “this final season has been bad” chorus, but I don’t think that’s really the point here – or, at least, it doesn’t quite explain why I feel forlorn about a show that recently I found difficult to watch.
At long last, the time is upon us wherein Ted finally reveals to his children 'How I Met Your Mother' with Monday's forthcoming series finale "Last Forever." The special hour-long episode will say goodbye to Robin, Barney, Ted, Marshall and Lily after nine seasons, but will the titular Mother have a happy ending along with them?

The impending end of CBS staple 'How I Met Your Mother' will surely allow stars Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor and Jason Segel to achieve even greater heights than over the past nine years, but fellow series star Alyson Hannigan doesn't mind staying right where she is. The erstwhile Lily has signed on for another CBS pilot 'More Time With Family,' albeit under the impressive producing banner of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
As if 'How I Met Your Mother' hadn't been under enough criticism in its ninth and final season, the most recent installment "Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra" seemed to highlight several surprisingly racist Asian stereotypes that have appropriately caused an uproar. Following the controversy, series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have reached out to apologize for the offensive nature of the episode.
For as many photos and casting announcements as 'How I Met Your Mother' has seen fit to throw at fans in advance of the final season's September 23 premiere, we haven't seen much of the mother herself (Cristin Milioti) since season 8 finale "Something New." That all changes with the latest CBS promo, as we learn Lily (Alyson Hannigan) to be the first from the group to actually meet the mother, which doesn't go as well as fans might hope.
More and more each year, the hardcore San Diego Comic-Con loyalists bemoan the presence of TV and movies that have little to do with comics or comic culture at large, but in this case, we don't mind one bit. 'How I Met Your Mother' will make its first (and only) appearance as a panel at Comic-Con 2013, but which stars will be in attendance, and what can we see from the final season?
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!
