‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 9 spoilers: More of Rachel Bilsion, Cristin Milioti in 200th episode

200th -Clearly, the folks behind “How I Met Your Mother” were not kidding at all when they made it clear that they are really trying to use the 200th episode “How Your Mother Met Me” to tie together a ton of loose ends. Based on everything that we are seeing right now, this is going to be more than just a landmark episode for Cristin Milioti; it may be the most-important half-hour of the entire series to show why she was able to really be in the right place to meet Ted.

The first thing to note here is the above picture, which we think of as pretty substantial proof that The Mother was at one point, as promised, a part of Ted’s class. While we are still confused as to how he never actually met her during all of this, maybe we will get that answer soon enough. You also see here a glimpse of Rachel Bilson, returning for this episode as The Mother’s former roommate Cindy.

200th -It looks like Cindy is also going to be a part of more than one scene, given that you have a shot of her here from whatever must be her character’s version of MacLaren’s bar. Clearly, she likes to have a good time with the best of them, and probably had a great time while out on the town. Given that she is pretty busy thanks to “Hart of Dixie,” it is rather rad that producers for both shows found a way to work this out so that she could cross over here, and provide a little bit of last-minute fan closure.
