I think it’s pretty clear by now (particularly with the most recent episode) that The Mother in How I Met Your Mother is dead/dying when Ted is telling the story to his kids.
Maybe it was Ted tearing up in this episode that did it, but it hit me how sad this actually is. Maybe it’s also due to how good an actress Cristin Milioti is playing The Mother that we’ve all grown to love her so quickly. The thought of her being terminal with something is pretty heart-wrenching :(
If this fucking happens. If I have spent almost a fucking decade of my life on this show, and the mother dies. I am going to be livid
