This is my third post today from work, it’s one of those days. But now its better because I get to talk about a show I love. How I Met Your Mother… now the show is definetly in its final few seasons, but to me it is one of the best written sit-coms in TV history. There is rarely a continuity error, infact they still bring back tidbits from the early seasons today.
Now the shows main hook is “Who is Teds wife?” Simple enough, and since we are supposed to meet her at Barney and Robin’s wedding, which I assume is the end of this season, show over right?
First of all, the show’s been renewed for season 9. Second of all, the show just isn’t about Ted’s wife anymore. Think about it, the last two seasons have all been about Barney and Robin getting together… Ted was almost a minor character. After we meet the mother, Ted still has to court her. Hell the show could keep going up until they are married. It doesn’t need to end just because the title is “How I MET your mother.” Frankly NPH steals the show away as Barney anyway. Even though he is in a relationship, his character has the best antics and scenes.
Now back to the writers. One of the many fan theorys on “who is the mother” was debunked in the last 2 episodes. Mainly the last one “Ring Up”. And call me crazy, I think they did it because it was a huge fan theory. The theory I’m talking about was that Barney’s half sister was the mother.
Think about it, what we knew about the mother before “Band or DJ” was she was in Ted’s college class, she’s at Barneys wedding. What did we know about Barney’s half sister. She’s away at college, and she will probably be at Barney’s wedding. Plus it would add a new aspect to “Uncle Barney and Aunt Robin.”
However at the end of Band or DJ, we find out the Mother is the Bass player for the band at the wedding, and in Ring Up Ted bangs a 20year old who turns out to be Barney’s sister… Effectivly ruling her out. This leaves everyone at square 1 about the mother.
