Who is the mother at the center of all of Ted’s stories? The lead character of “How I Met Your Mother” has already made it clear that it is not Victoria — but before we end up meeting the real title character on the show, we are going to see these two give things another shot.
In the season 8 finale that aired this past May, we saw Victoria bail on her wedding to Klaus at the last minute in order to be with Ted, but in the premiere a question is going to come up during this great escape — did she even leave the guy a note? We don’t know if she is going to go back and write one for him — but no matter how this disaster turns out, we do know that we are going to finally meet the guy who was talked about throughout last season at various points.
According to a new report from Entertainment Weekly, former “Reno 911!” star Thomas Lennon is going to check in as the man who Victoria is jilting in the same way that Stella decided to run away from him. We don’t really know much about when we will first see the former Lt. Jim Dangle, but we have a feeling that he is no going to be too happy with Ted if he ever does manage to run in to him.
Ashley Williams is set to appear in at least a handful of episodes for this coming season, and executive producers Craig Thomas and Carter Bays have said that she is one of the last relationships Ted will get into before the mother arrives. However, there is still one other relationship left, and early rumors suggest that it will be a disaster.
