‘How I Met Your Mother’ Teases the Big Reveal in the Upcoming Season Finale

Credit: CBS

Okay, guys. This might be it. I know we’ve gotten our hopes up before. I know it’s a fool’s errand to believe. But maybe, just maybe, this upcoming Season 8 finale of How I Met Your Mother is the episode in which we, the long-suffering viewing audience, finally meet her. There have been promises that the season would conclude with an introduction to the future Mrs. Mosby… and yes, we mean the sort of promises that deadbeat dads in movies like Angels in the Outfield make. But just call us all wide-eyed 8-year-old Joseph Gordon-Levitts, because we need to believe that she’s coming. Soon. We’ve just… we’ve invested so much time.

This new HIMYM clip promoting the final episode of the season does tease a big reveal, but without going into much (or any detail). Could it be her? Or, at the very least, another clue about who she might be? In any event, we know she’s not Casey Wilson, as previously suspected. A second clip introduces Wilson as a separate character in the upcoming episode: one who earns the title of Barney and Robin’s arch enemy. Watch below!

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
