If you’ve been playing along you’ll know that after eight years of waiting, we finally met How I met Your Mother’s mystery woman. Though it was a brief look, it setup what looks like it’s going to be one hell of a final season. Here’s what we know: season nine will take place over the course of one weekend, but in typical HIMYM fashion, it’ll feature a ton of flashbacks and nods to previous episodes, so don’t expect to get bored. We also know that the gang will all meet the proverbial mother ( played by Cristin Milioti) one at a time and in rather interesting fashion. This trailer, just released by CBS shows how Lilly (who we’re hearing is first) meets the unnamed woman, and it appears it’s on a train, cookies are involved and…things don’t seem to go quite well.
The ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother airs on CBS Monday September 23.
