'How I Met Your Mother' Season 9 200th Episode: Cristin Milioti, Rachel Bilson, The Classroom, and St Patrick's Party in Farewell Special [SPOILERS]

By @jotfields on

"How I Met Your Mother" Season 9 airs the 200th episode of the series, titled, "How Your Mother Met Me." HIMYM 9x16 premieres Jan. 27 on the U.S. network CBS. This HIMYM episode is told from Mrs Mosby's perspective, so it is practically a Cristin Milioti show for the week. Spoilers indicate Rachel Bilson will guest star, and many burning questions will be answered before the end of the farewell special.

Spoiler alert: This How I Met Your Mother Season 9 feature contains spoilers on HIMYM S9x16. Watch the 200th episode sneak previews (promo videos with minor spoilers) via the given link below.

Does the mother die before Bob Saget (as Ted Mosby's voice) began telling the HIMYM story to the Mosby kids? Viewers will either hear the still-unnamed mother in present timeline, or some other kind of narration treatment. It is worth noting that the Episode 16 opening credits is all about the mother.

Will the mother also meet Robin (Cobie Smulders) in this episode? Or does it happen in a flashback later on? Earlier spoilers said Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is the last among the gang to meet the mother. But it seems this week's new episode is too loaded with flashbacks to squeeze in a Robin connection.

Rachel Bilson, who plays Cindy the mother's roommate and Ted's ex-girlfriend, will be in a number of scenes on How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 16. Spoilers reveal she will be seen seated right next to the mother in Mosby's infamous "wrong classroom" flashback.

Cindy, who first appeared in How I Met Your Mother Season 5, is likely to have told the mother a couple of things about Ted Mosby. HIMYM fans also know that it was Cindy who recommended the future Mrs Mosby's band to Ted (for Robin and Barney's wedding).

There will also be a scene at the St Patrick's Day party, which both Ted Mosby and the mother attended years ago. Ted was with Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) at the time. Many fans have watched this St Patty episode repeatedly after Ted Mosby said the mother was in the same party.

How I Met Your Mother co-creator Craig Thomas has nothing but praise for Cristin Milioti in this special episode. He has been quoted a couple times, saying Milioti deserves an Emmy award for her Mrs Mosby portrayal in Episode 16.

Meanwhile, Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) have to figure out what they would do about the judgeship and the Roman gig. As of Episode 15, Lily walks out of the Farhampton Inn. Is she meeting up with the mother?

Watch Cristin Milioti in this spoilertv.com sneak preview. In this HIMYM 9x16 promo video, viewers take another look at the mother's yellow umbrella. As a tribute to the future Mrs Mosby, the opening credits was altered, so it's all about her.

There are only a few hours before the wedding. How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 16, the 200th episode, leads the last nine episodes of the series.
