sorry didn't read whole thread.
Impossible based on like a dozen things they have stated on the show, so it's kinda dumb they are spending so much time on her unless this actually leads down the mother-meeting path.

Cameron is more likely to be an Elliot than the Mother, but they theoretically could swerve that wedding to have happened years earlier (hence Barney and Robin not being there) and it wasnt until "present day" that they realise they met then.

The leading theory is that the last few eps will reveal they have been circling around each other for years so when they realise that the first time they met was that day assume its mutual friends that moved away or something), they just forgot until a freak encounter when the two of them bump into the other couple that he was best man and she was a bridesmaid.

Of course her being married to the Captain and having a room mate in New York makes no sense

Unless they get seriously funky with the timeline anyway.

But yeah, i wouldnt put it past them, but im going with a solid no right now. She surely has to be a key part of Ted meeting the Mother, perhaps they set two friends up and that is how the wedding happens?

She certainly is, I miss her in house.

And they've gone and wrote 13 off as well

Back on topic, I thought that was a pretty decent episode and I can't see Zoey being the mother though, I don't think we'll ever find out unless it gets cancelled and they need to finish the season on a high. Or they go for broke and show you who it is (imo a good idea) and continue writing the adventures if you will with the new member of the gang.

They need to introduce the mother because the show is so dead creatively.

They mentioned Ted didn't have an umbrella, which I'm guessing he goes in the wedding and sees the mother with her yellow one, so a flashback far enough back to be Barney/Robinless would be implausible

It's been about half a year since the 100th episode, so they'd really be playing with the timeline for her to be the roommate unless she got married recently/was long time friends with Bilson and wanted to live with her since they're close to the school.

My theory pre this episode is like yours but backwards, if Zoey is the mother it's the first time they meet while she's single or first time Ted sees her as someone who's not an annoying ass.

just going on the rules they've set up, and how they've introduced pieces of the mother, I'd be disappointed if Cameron is the mother because it doesn't make sense. It would be very Lostesque

smokin hot protest chick (cameron apparently although i didn't retain her name at all while watching) is not the mom. the end.

as for this ep, it wasn't great but i laughed more than i have recently. best part being the security guard getting disrupted by his cell while saying legendary. i also enjoyed marshall's fake words. but i also love the actor.

lily is now one of my 3 most hated characters on tv. i can't think of two others so maybe she's simply the most hated. every ep it's something different but her whiny "you've changed, marshall" was so infuriating. besides the fact that we know she's a shopaholic and probably needs the GNB salary to live comfortably, she's a school teacher who gave up on her painting dreams and while one could argue that's why she needs marshall to live his out, the whiny way in which she does it makes me cringe. plus, it's not like marshall has changed. he's still awesome...he just brings in a big paycheck while not helping the environment. the forced tension is, even for a comedy, tilting. if i were marshall, i'd divorce her.

oh, and this show needs to embrace the future hints aspect more. i dunno about you guys but as a loyal viewer who has seen every ep more than once, simply knowing marshall leaves GNB is exciting to me. i'm not saying every ep needs to be like this (and they probably avoid it so as not to deter the casual viewer), but a little more of old ted saying "as you know" or "we'll get to that later" would go a long way imo.

Zoe. Her name when she was on House was Cameron.

She still paints and makes money off it by selling them to Veterinarians.

if i was writing this show, we would never even see the mother. the ending would be like


Spoiler:
Inception



where you wouldn't know exactly who she was, like right as she was about to turn around narrator ted says


"...and that's how i met your mother"

I'm really not a fan of that type of ending. I've said this before, but the most similar show to this, at least the idea that there's some limiting event on the plot, is 'That 70s Show'.

The creators in that 70s show, and in HIMYM, have confused the hook of the show with what has truly driven people to watch the show. That 70s show didn't have to end in 1980. HIMYM doesn't have to end with meeting the mom. The best parts of HIMYM, imo, were based around the lilly-marshall engagement-breakup-marriage. Meeting the mother would allow the plot to move much more organically in a similar pattern and possibly make ted funny again instead of a douche I want to die alone.

I really want them to finish this season when they meet his wife at the wedding, then it cuts to the future and the kids look at each other, then old ted, then the wife who is next to him, ted and wife look at each other and then say "kids, its time for you to know, you are adopted. So now to get into how the two of us met your mother".

It would tilt soooooooooo many people.

Breakup Marshall & lily has always been my least favourite storyline/period. Up untill then I've always considered this a show that puts me in a good mood and those storylines were like the first that weren't doing that.

i hope we get a season with the mom and ted. i'm just brainstorming different ways they could go

Id be shocked if the last season, or at least a lot of it, doesnt have Ted and the mother developing their relationship and getting married. If they just meet and then do a goofy montage of their first date, her meeting the gang, getting married, having kids etc.

The Space Teens show was very funny, and Barney had some good moments, but all the Lily / Ted's friend stuff was zzzzz imo.
