CBS has released a pair of new promos in advance of How I Met Your Mother‘s season eight finale, “Something New.”

Of the new two videos, one promises the reveal of the “mother of all secrets.” Check them out below:

Obviously there is only one possibility that How I Met Your Mother fans are thinking of when they hear “the mother of all secrets”: who is the mother?! CBS and How I Met Your Mother have been known to tease and prolong this reveal for as long as possible, but there is real reason for optimism that we may at least catch our first glimpse of Mrs. Mosby in the season 8 finale.

The official synopsis for the episode reads:

As the gang prepares to head out to Robin and Barney’s wedding, Ted invites Lily to see the house he’s finally finished fixing up. Meanwhile, Robin and Barney’s night of relaxation is ruined by an obnoxious couple, and Marshall takes the baby on a last-minute trip to Minnesota to see his family, on the eighth season cliffhanger finale of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

So it remains to be seen if the episode actually ends up at Barney and Robin’s wedding, which is where Ted will meet his future wife according to HIMYM lore, but if it does, there’s a good chance the producers will throw us our first look at her. Showrunners Craig Thomas and Carter Bays have said previously that season 9 – the final season – will be fundamentally different from all seasons before it and immediately identifiable as season 9 when watched in repeats. Could that game changer begin with the season 8 finale and the long-awaited reveal?

      I’ll be pissed, but also that’s kind of genius.

    Didn’t they say a while ago that for season 9, the whole format would change? Well if so I hope the mother is introduced at the end of this season, so we can see her character develop in the final year.

    I’m expecting to see her shoulder or the back of her head, or something really obscure and then just see Ted’s face as he catches her eye… and then have to wait until Series 9 to even see her. =/

      Man, you made me think 24 was a comedy. After a trip down DVD lane, I am so not speaking to you anymore.

    Season 9 is all going to take place at the wedding. No doubt about it.
