Spoiler alert: This feature contains spoilers on How I Met Your Mother Season 9, the CBS sitcom's final season. Read at your own risk.
Here are ten of the best HIMYM moments in the final season, thus far:
10. Marvin Waitforit Eriksen in flash forward. In the Feb. 24 episode of How I Met Your Mother Season 9 (Episode 18, "Rally"), Marvin spots his drunk 'rents, Lily and Marshall at a bar. In this same episode, it is revealed 'Beercules' Marshall (Jason Segel) will be elected to lead the New York Supreme Court.
9. 'The Mother' meets the Naked Man. In Episode 16, "the mother" (Cristin Milioti) drags herself to the same bar that Barney and Ted (Josh Radnor) went to in celebrataion of St Patrick's Day. On the same night, she has an encounter with The Naked Man.
8. "I don't have to wait for it anymore." In the hour-long premiere of How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Robin (Cobie Smulders) asks Barney why he missed a "wait for it" beat. He responds, "I have you. I don't have to wait for it anymore."
7. Ted reveals the name of his kids. There is at least one good thing that has happened to Ted Mosby after 2 am - the birth of his son Luke. His sister, Penny, must've been named after Ted's and the mother's shared fascination for old, "lucky" pennies.
6. Lily meets "the mother." Alyson Hannigan and Cristin Milioti showed a strong chemistry as new friends who bonded over "someb**ches" in How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 1.
5. Ted proposes to the future Mrs Mosby. In HIMYM Season 9, Episode 8, Ted proposes at the Farhampton Inn Lighthouse. (Episode 16 makes the proposal more special.)
4. Barney meets "the mother." If Barney Stinson had not tried to pick up the future Mrs Ted Mosby at a pharmacy, he would still be busy playing games (instead of winning).
3. 'The Mother' finds out Ted is "in-love" with her. Cindy (Rachel Bilson) tells "the mother" Ted has a thing for her. The mother finds it weird. How could a guy be interested in someone who digs calligraphy, goes to renaissance faires, and collects coins?
2. Ted revisits the Farhampton Inn with Mrs Mosby. Toward the end of the How I Met Your Mother Season 9 premiere, a flash forward of Ted Mosby on a date with Cristin Milioti's mother character set the tone perfectly for the sitcom's farewell this year.
Meanwhile, why is Barney Stinson not in suits in his final day of filming? Many fans are worried a funeral might be on the horizon. This raises a popular HIMYM question again: Does the mother die before 2030?
