Yeah, fair enough, just double checked and he was asked about his toast.

Im still pretty sure its "too obvious" its Barney and Robin though.

Probably depends if that wedding is the season or series finale. Can't imagine Barney/Robin get together during the show again since it was a disaster the first time but I think they end up together when the series ends as a nice send off type thing for them.

It's Robin and the guy who broke up with her. Ted is Robin's bro-of-honor.

Imo it can't be Barny/Robin and be the season finale.

Season 7 starting with Lilly/Marshall married and likely with a kid, Barny/Robin married, and Ted possibly in the last relationship of his life, would make for pretty much the worst show ever.

Also I have to believe the wedding happens soon, because now, for the first time, we know when Ted meets the mom. This has two implications that are interesting for the show:

1 - he hasn't met her yet. It could be someone he has run into or shared the screen with, but no one he has met. So it's not, for instance, the long distance relationship girl or something returned to his life.

2 - any girl he meets from here on in, not at the wedding, is necessarily not the mom. If he meets a girl at the bar or anywhere else and they start dating, we know from square one it's not the mom.

Because of # 2 I have to think the wedding is sooner than later. That doesn't mean the mystery is solved in that ep of course. He could meet multiple women there.

Fwiw i think the most likely answer has to be Ted becoming good friends with the chick he dated once and he is her best man at the lesbian wedding where he meets the mother.

Also this seems to lock the show into one more season after this one. He meets the mother at the end of this season and next season builds towards their wedding, right?

Yeah I think Barney/Robin is too obvious. It is probably Robin marrying Don and Ted is Robin's "best man" and lily is her maid of honor. Don has been referred to in context that makes him out to be an important part of Robin's life and a few months relationship and tough breakup isn't nearly enough for how future ted talked about him. The Barney admiring of Robin is just a fake out I think. Also Robin doesn't want kids and Don is an older dude who I think already had a kid(?).

Why the hell is a guy that Cindy dated once the best man at her lesbian wedding? Surely it's another wedding, right?

The way Don broke up with Robin was cold, also he wasn't funny (at all) and was one of the reasons last season sucked. Finally, marrying off Robin would only unnecessarily limit the series.

I'm not saying it isn't Don. I'm saying the writers are ****ing ******ed if it is.

NPH is so great. The look on his face when he slo-mo went for his iPhone camera to shoot the two lesbians making out was priceless.

Knowing this show, they were best men at Robin's wedding because she has no chick friends and that won't be the actual wedding where Ted met his wife because the writers will do anything to drag the show out 3 seasons longer.

Not that I dislike it or anything, but the advancement of the plot has been glacially slow. Seeing her ankles last season and finding out they meet at a wedding in this ep has been a relative avalanche of info, and it's still hardly anything.

Barney has to be involved in the wedding in some kind of way in my opinion. If he wasn't he'd be sitting on the bench with Ted/Marshall. So if I had to guess right now it would be Barney and Robin

pretty good episode. glad to see the writers are starting to get back to the point of the show. hopefully it continues to progress in that manner.

i'm also in the camp that Ted is Robin's best man at her wedding but i'm not convinced she's marrying barney.


also: cindy is HOT

I'm not going to take the easy guesses of Barney or Robin's marriage. I'm going to guess it's Ted's sister.

I was thinking Ted's sister but they seem happy to entirely ignore her now despite her living just up the road.

Ted's dad? Maybe remarrying his mom? Though it doesnt make sense how the mother would be there.

It has to be the lesbian's wedding. The girl (cute Brunette he turned lesbian) he dated was the roommate of Ted's future wife (remember how he was attracted to all her roommates stuff and not her). That has already been revealed last season. I guess you guys don't remember that. It would only make sense that his wife is there since the lesbian is getting married and that's her roommate or former roommate.

You don't address why Ted would be best man. Also, there is no reason to reveal that she does marry the other girl at the end of the episode.

Anyway, didn't like it as much as most of you seemed to. Meh, I'll wait a few weeks and reevaluate.

This makes a lot more sense than Barney/Robin. Why would Ted's wife be at their wedding when she she has no ties to anyone?

Reevaluate all you want, but even if it's not awesome, you know you're gonna keep watching regardless

Ted's wife is what's her names roommate. That was revealed last year when he dated the brunette chick last night. Remember how he kept asking about all this stuff in her house, and they were all her roommates. That why he was wondering about the ankle, cause that's the only part he saw of the roommate when she hopped out of the shower. Everyone needs to re-watch this episode if they don't remember. They have ties b/c it's the lesbians roommate is Ted's future wife.

Updated: Cindy who is Rachel Bilson. Cindy's roommate is Ted's wife.

which is why I am comparing the HIMYM writers to the Lost writers
