So how DID Ted finally meet the mother?
Luckily, they didn't meet then, because Ted was generally being a jerk that evening after having recently recovered from his breakup with Robin; and he'd have. Their meet-up was the catalyst for Barney realizing he wants to be with Robin no matter how hard it is, so really, the Mother is responsible for. It WAS? Shouldn't it have been called How I Met your STEP mother so? (Many a fan has said that, I very much stole that line.) The final moments then saw old.
How I Met Your Mother Finale Recap: We Finally Meet (and See) the Mother! | E! News
So how DID Ted finally meet the mother? Although, we've all known her this good while, as she has featured heavily in flash forwards, and she's pretty much been meeting everybody BUT Ted in the final series. We knew it would be the train station, we knew the yellow umbrella would be involved, hell, we knew how Ted would eventually propose to his future wife, but this week we got to see the moment Ted first met the mother of his children, and that was everything we could have hoped for.
He first claps eyes on her at Barney and Robin's wedding reception where she was playing in the band, and later at the train station, they get chatting under this famous yellow umbrella. Endearing banter is had, looks are exchanged, and as Lily herself said the next day, this one seems different.
We then get to see how all their lives plan out together, Lily and Marshall go on to have three kids, Barney and Robin fail to go the distance and divorce after three years, with Robin then going awol from the gang for some time.
Barney gets some young one knocked up and ends up finally finding the love of his life when he meets his baby daughter. We know that Ted and Tracy the mother's name was finally revealed have two kids, Penny and Luke, who Ted is of course telling the story to in later years. And then the final minutes came, and we heard the news we had been coming to expect - his wife Tracy, the mother of his children, had in fact died - and some time ago too.
The camera finally turns around in the room we have seen him talking to his children in all these years, and there is older Ted sitting there, and NOT Bob Saget Bays and Thomas also did not want a large casting call.
