After eight seasons, encompassing 184 episodes and twice as many angry “DAMMIT MOSBY” comments, the identity of the titular mother on How I Met Your Mother was finally revealed during tonight’s “Something New.” But first a little background: kids, back in the summer of 2006, I was…actually screw that.
