Where do we even begin.

OK! News: Catch up on How I Met Your Mother so you know what everyone's talking about!

Okay, we met the mother last night on the finale of How I Met Your Mother. Yes, finally, god bless us everyone, we glimpsed the mother. It happened in the last few seconds of the season 8 finale, and it was very exciting. The actress who will portray her, Cristin Milioti, is both beautiful and adorable, and she has an awesome Broadway pedigree and a freaky guest spot on 30 Rock to her name.

It's not the actress I take issue with—I am very excited about her. It's the fact that we only saw her at the end of the episode, and that we never got to see Robin and Barney get married (what if they don't get married, even though we know the mother plays in the band at the reception?). Oh, and Marshall and Lily are about to have their relationship challenged by their jobs. Again.

I enjoy the show, but sometimes I wonder if the producers really do relish in torturing their fans as much as humanly possible. I don't mean in a tantalizing way, like an awesome cliffhanger or a crazy new plotline. I mean pushing the boundaries of their fandom, stretching and recycling storylines, and promising something for eight years—putting it in the title of the show, making it the whole shtick—without ever following through.

What I'm saying is, I wanted her to speak to Ted. I wanted him to meet...the we know How He Met the Mother. Just because he interacts with her doesn't mean the show runs out of jucie. It's just beginning! We get to see them fall in love now! I just wish it had happened in 2007.

What did you think of the season finale of HIMYM? Did you enjoy finally seeing the mother? Was it what you expected it to be? Or as you as mad as me? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
