‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 9 spoilers: First photo of Cristin Milioti in 200th episode

How Your Mother Met Me -Are you ready for a significant “How I Met Your Mother” episode to come on the air? While there are going to be some big reveals in Monday’s “Unpause” (primarily the reveal of the children’s names), the episode following this entitled “How Your Mother Met Me” will be important for a much larger reason: Giving you the entire backstory of The Mother.

Unfortunately, this first-look photo above doesn’t really give too much away about this character, save for the fact that she likes blue, and seems to appear almost studious in this image. The easy thing to theorize about here? That this picture is presumably one from her time at school. If you remember, she was at one point in a class taught by Ted Mosby. (Obviously, though, he never ended up actually meeting her.)

Hopefully, this episode is also going to feature a number of other near-misses for the character over the years, whether it be when Ted was dating Cindy, or of course the infamous “yellow umbrella” that we have heard about so many times over the years. These two have already come very close to meeting each other at the hotel already this season, but somehow, it didn’t quite work out.

But, in the end you know how this story is going to go. The only question that really remains is whether or not you are going to see Ted and The Mother in a happy place, but it may still be a while until that big moment finally happens.
