How I Met Your Mother Season 9 is perhaps the most anticipated comedy in the U.S. TV fall line-up. Fans can't wait to know more about the 'mother.' Which character will she first engage - Robin (The Ex), Barney (The Best Friend Who Married the Ex), or Lily (The Original Best Friend's Wife)? At the same time, we want to see Barney's and Robin's wedding -- what happens to the flight-risk couple?
In a major HIMYM spoiler update months ago, it has been revealed the mother will meet all of Ted's friends before she meets her future husband. Who do you think will appear first in her 'How I Met Your Father' story? Could it be Barney Stinson? In another major spoiler, we learned that the entire Season 9 will tell the story of Robin's and Barney's honeymoon weekend. The series starts with the two already married?
Ted has said his kids' mother's boyfriend before him was a Wall Street guy -- the type of guy Barney could have ties with. (Yet we still don't know what Barney's job really is. We do know, however, that he's involved with Goliath National Bank and he thrives in numbers.)
How I Met Your Mother Season 9, the farewell season of the series, adds a regular cast for the first time: Cristin Milioti. We still don't know her character's name, but the titular mother was last seen buying a ticket to Farhampton.
How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Episodes 1 & 2: 'The Locket,' 'Coming Back'
Among the spoilers we've rounded up are the titles for the first two episodes of How I Met Your Mother Season 9. Episode 1 is called "The Locket" (Source: TV Line) and Episode 2 is "Coming Back." (Source: SpoilerTV)
The Locket is most likely about the piece of 'Something Old' jewellery that Robin buried in Central Park when she was a young teen. Coming Back is most likely about the show's treatment for its final season, which has a lot of flashbacks and flashforwards. It will be the most non-linear episode of HIMYM, and viewers are in for some surprises.
We also learned that Marshall will have an encounter with an African-American or Latina woman in her 30s or 40s on his way back from Minnesota to New York City. Will this woman crystallise Marhall's thoughts about the judgeship offer and a life in Italy?
Spoilers are coming out one by one to build up the thrill for How I Met Your Mother Season 9, the final HIMYM season. The journey towards the series finale begins on September 23 for this hit CBS comedy. The cast will attend the Comic-Con (SDCC) for the first time to thank fans for their appreciation.
