Storyline

This story starts on the very same day he started his own story, the day that Marshall and Lily got engaged, and the day he met Robin. This day was their mother's twenty-first birthday, the day her then boyfriend Max, who was the love of her life and the one and only person she thought she would ever love, died. His death affected how she approached her dating life over much of the intervening time. Ted also tells them of the many close calls the two of them had in meeting, including when she, as an economics student who wanted to end world poverty, was in the classroom he thought was his classroom for his very first day as an architecture professor, and how she became roommates with Cindy, a woman who he ended up dating.

Wow, I'm speechless. This episode was absolutely amazing. I liked every single part of it. I know that some of the episodes this season were a little off, but there is no other show that can still have a great episode like this after more than 8 years of airing. Cristin Milioti was an excellent choice for the mother. She makes every episode better. I also liked all the call-backs and flashback from previous seasons. How Your Mother Met Me was tragic, funny, sweet and heartwarming all at the same time. Quite possibly the best episode of How I Met Your Mother ever. Congrats to Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and especially Cristin Milioti.
