With only four episodes left of the hit CBS comedy series How I Met Your Mother, there has been a lot of speculation about how the series will end and it now seems like we might have been given a huge clue from the show. There has been a rumour for sometime, that the mother has actually been dead all along and now the show has given us the biggest hint yet that this is the case.
In Monday nights episode there was a discussion between Ted (Josh Radnor) and the mother, which got everybody talking about the series finale and how they feel the mother is already dead. The episode flashed forward 10 years into the future to see Ted telling his wife a story about Robin's (Cobie Smulders) wedding.
The mother tells Ted, "You're the love of my life, Pooh Bear. I just worry about you. I don't want you to be the guy who lives in his stories. Life only moves forward," before Ted continues telling the story. He says about Robin's mum turning up to her wedding unexpectedly, to which his wife says, "Of course she showed up. What mother is going to miss her daughter's wedding?" with they both go silent and Ted has tears in his eyes.
Viewers have now suggested that this means that the mother would not get to see their daughter get married, as she is ill and will already be dead. This is all speculation for now though and we have four more episodes left of the hit series, before it is finished for good.
How I Met Your Mother season nine continues on Monday evenings, with the series finale double bill coming on March 31.
