    While I do enjoy this show a lot it has been stuffed with rehashed ideas from other shows.  Barney is Charlie Sheen from 2 and a half Men.  Ted and Robin have played the Ross and Rachael game…with Barney playing Joey to those characters.  Marshall and Lilly have done the get married but it didn’t work as planned so lets have the fun main characters wedding then search for couple friends then have a baby routine.  This leads me to believe the writers will rehash other ideas for the shows end as well.  Again, this isn’t that I don’t like it, I enjoy the show, but I don’t expect anything super new.  So big recycled ideas that could be the series end:  Barney marries Robin (an “I object” moment dismisses the blonde) a la Dawson’s Creek…one friend ends up with her and one doesn’t but they still remain friends in completely TV only style.  Ted and Robin would be the other cliche but too many instances of “Aunt” Robin and the mother being some girls roommate etc make that impossible.  TV shows tend to either give the audience a happy ending (two main characters together in the end) or try to shock them.  Since they have written themselves into a corner and the shock of Ted ending up with someone you didn’t see coming will be hard to pull off, Barney and Robin seems the most likely.  I suppose they could go for the shock of who Barney marries, but there aren’t any old characters they could bring back that seem plausible for that.

    Barney won’t marry Robin because he’s over her now. Barney will marry Quinn. Victoria will cater the wedding and be the “one who got away that the group encourages Ted to go after.” Ted will talk to her and find out that she couldn’t go through with marrying Hans, thus giving her her last arc on the show. In my opinion, the mother is going to be that chick Ted and Barney made the bet on who could sleep with her first. She was Ted’s perfect girl but Barney had said that he slept with her so Ted got skeeved out and dumped her. Or the mystery girl is the “Love Solutions” girl from the end of season 1 that Ted had to bail on to pick up stranded Lily in Dutchess County

    Eat your words, bitch.

    Robin is revealed as the bride – but it is Ted`s bride. Barney is marrying Quinn. The wedding ends up with Barney leaving Quinn at the altar and ending up with Robin, while Ted meets the mother (victoria, or barney`s sister, or bump girl)….also,other possibility: Barney`s bride is Quinn , while this double wedding is also the wedding of Robin and her bump guy. Ted meets the mother (victoria,bump girl or barney`s sister), while Robin abandones the bump guy and Barney abandones Quinn. The last episode of season 7 tells us that this wedding WILL BE HORRIBLE, so Barney and Robin both will back out, so that they can end up together.

    Ah what would you have them do… these are social archetypes that people relate to because we see them in our own lives. That’s why many shows use them.

     He also says the mother was at the st pattys day party, which robin never was.  robin is simply aunt robin throughout the show and if this truly is the last season, then it makes sense that barney and robin are to be married, and season 8 will discuss how barney dumped quinn (or vis versa) and ended up with robin, eventually leading to who the mother is…we have never met barneys half sister, so it makes sense that bump girl is barneys half sister.

  • Awesome

    Its bad luck for the groom to see the bride that day before they are at the alter together, so why would Ted and Robin be marrying each other?

  • Haveyoumet

    Robin is barney’s bride ok, In the first and the last episode of season 7, if you look at ted’s hand, there’s a ring on it. which probably means he already has a wife. WHAAADDDUUUUUUP

  • howdidyoumeetmother

    I THINK: ted marries yellow umbrella girl…has 2 babies with her, the 2 kids on the couch…and robin is always around so they call her aunt robin BUT THEN down the road ted will divorce “your mother” and get with robin and the kids just continue to call her aunt robin because they were raised to….and they have a mom already so they dont need to call her anything else….i dont know….i love the show but it is so so confusing!!!

    I think that Ted is going to marry the girl from the St.Patrick party that he bump into for like 1 sec
