If you've been sticking by How I Met Your Mother for six seasons just to find out who the "mother" is, then wow, you're really patient. And here's some bad news: Your wait will continue.
Responding to speculation that Ted's (Josh Radnor) future wife will pop up in the season finale (CBS, Monday, May 16, 8 p.m. ET), creator Carter Bays offers this tease to Entertainment Weekly: "This finale sets the ducks in a row for everything we’re going to see after it, leading up to Ted meeting the mother.”
Here's what Bays has let on: During the finale, in a scene set one year in the future, some of the characters are preparing for a wedding. We'll learn the identity of either the bride or the groom by the end of the season capper, but not both. And though Ted, the best man, will meet his future wife during these nuptials, viewers shouldn't expect to have the same pleasure.
