Follow @SlapBetBlog Random post about, what else?, the mother.
soooo many theories about who she could be! if you're wondering.....heres all of them, that i know of.
The Half Sister Theory: so now we know Barney is getting married, which completely supports the half sister theory. if you haven't heard it yet, it basically says that Barney's half sister Carly, is the mother. You may recall that in the episode, "Legendaddy" Jerome (Barney's dad) says he has a daughter, Carly, in college, and of course we already know that Teds future wife is a college student from the episode "Girls vs. Suits." and, obviously, she would definitely be at Barney's wedding, so it makes sense. AND, you notice how Barney met Cheryl (Jerome's wife), and JJ at dinner...but not Carly. Interesting, no? this is my favorite theory right now.
Nora: I saw this on another HIMYM blog and it sounds crazy. it claims Nora is the mother. at first, i found this ridiculous, but it might not be. the theory is that Barney is marrying Nora, But pulls a "Shelter Island" and leaves her at the alter for Robin ( i support this.). then, Nora wanders out in the rain to find Ted (with her yellow umbrella) and the rest, is history. I don't think it's very likely, but it's worth considering. Still, even though I know it's impossible, the more I think about it, the more I wish it was her.
Victoria: She was one of Teds best girlfriends throughout the show, maybe even better than Robin. I know they probably won't bring her back, but still, she was pretty great.
The Tracy Theory: this is very popular among HIMYM fans, but it contradicts the Half Sister Theory, so I don't really like it. In the episode season 1, "Belly Full of Turkey," Ted, Barney, and Robin spend Thanksgiving in a strip club. One of the strippers approaches Ted who says "Hey, I'm Ted," and the stripper says "I'm Tracy." Then future Ted says " and thats how I met your mother....kidding!" but before he says he's kidding the kids are like "WHAT!" and they totally believe him. but why would they if their mom's name isn't Tracy? so it says that the stripper Tracy is NOT the mother, but their mother's name is Tracy. Now here's something I noticed in the season 4 finale: After Robin tells Barney "I think I'm in love with you" Barney runs off to another girl at the party. A blond girl....named Tracy. And Ted NEVER meets her. So how does he even know she was there?
The Slutty Pumpkin: Well, guess not :(
Zoey: Well this theory was dead from the beginning but whatever. People still thought about it.
Shannon: Okay, this violates the title of this post because it has nothing to do with the mom, but still. About a week or two ago, I was watching the episode "Game Night" where Barney talks about his past as a hippie with his girlfriend, Shannon. So I'm just going to throw this out there: Is there any chance Barney could end up with her? The more I think about this, the more likely it seems. There is one issue though. I don't think they could get that actress back on the show. Still, it's an interesting theory.
Robin: it's not Robin. get over yourself. they said it in the Pilot, they've said it time and time again. ROBIN IS NOT THE MOTHER. we know that, but people still try to come up with stupid theories. but i can tell you. it's not Robin.
Ted's Perfect Match: I think it's very possible, because he never got to meet her since he decided he's rather have Robin than perfect, so maybe he does end up with his perfect match...
The mother is blond?: Well, i finally get it! Someone on another HIMYM blog (have-you-met-ted.com) cleared this up for me. So, its like this: In the episode "Ted Mosby, Architect" Ted is talking to this girl who says something like "architects are HOT. how to you think mr. Brady scored a babe like Carol (that might not be her name, but bear with me.)" Then Ted goes "she did have hair of gold." and when, after that, he goes "mmhmm" you can hear future Ted aka Bob Saget saying "mmhmm" along with him. So, the conspiracy is that Future Ted is telling us that the Mother is blond. I can see that this theory has holes, but i don't know...it could be a break in the case...
The "Friends" Theory: I'm pretty sure every HIMYM fan who followed "Friends" has thought of this so I'll just put it out there. Remember in Friends when Ross is going to marry Emily but says "I take thee, Rachel," instead? (sorry i can't remember episode names, haven't watched Friends in a while.) Well, basically, this theory says that at Barney's wedding, he'll be marrying Nora or whoever, but says Robin's name instead. I like this theory, but HIMYM has copied a lot of stuff from Friends already, so i do kind of rule it out.
Bump Girl: Sorry I totally forgot about this one. Ted bumps into this girl at the St. Patrick's Day party and people think shes the mother. But I heard that if you turn on commentary for the episode, they say shes not the mom. Raincheck on that, those of you who have season 3 on DVD. I only have seasons 1, 2, and 4 so I can't be sure. This kills the blond theory though, since the girl is brunette.
I haven't heard much outside from this, but if you have a theory, I'd love to hear it :)
