    In the season eight finale of "How I Met Your Mother," we got one of the biggest (if not the biggest) reveal in "HIMYM" history: the face (and the actress) who will become Ted's (Josh Radnor) wife!

    Broadway star and Tony-nominated actress Cristin Milioti appeared in the last shot of the finale, yellow umbrella and all, presumably on her way to play in the band at Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin's (Cobie Smulders) wedding.

    It makes sense that the "HIMYM" bosses chose Milloti, who just wrapped up her run as "Girl" in the musical "Once," because we all know that Ted's future wife is very musically-inclined. Unless this is some kind of cruel red herring, then we just laid eyes on the infamous mother.

    What did you guys think of the big reveal? And what about Marshall's (Jason Segel) big news that he could become a New York judge? How cute were Barney and Robin preparing for their wedding?
