In Love Forever we get a long series of montages that describe what happens to the gang from the time Ted meets the mother to the time Ted’s telling his story. There was a weird mix of a few favorite clips, call backs to favorite moments, and a long series of expected, and not so expected, events.
Before we watch tonight’s final episode of How I Met Your Mother, I would like to make a prediction about the fate of the Mother. Obvious spoilers ahead.
The day as finally arrived. No, it’s not the inevitable meeting with the mother, but rather the wedding of Barney and Robin.
Long time fans of the show finally get a glimpse to what the mother has been up to all these years, and how many near misses that she and Ted has had for so long.
Season nine, the final season, brings a final set of stories and draws us toward the long time conclusion of how exactly did Ted meet the mother.

“P.S. I Love You” brings the faithful fans the fourth installment of the Robin Sparkles saga in the form of “Underneath the Tunes,” a spoof of VH1’s “Behind the Music.”
