Is Britney Spears The Mother On How I Met Your Mother?

That’s a joke! They would never do that to fans of the sitcom/mystery, or “sit-myst,” but in this Hollywood Reporter interview with Mother co-creator Craig Thomas (which also includes clips of Britney on tonight’s episode), he makes it clear that not only does Britney’s character “tie up” loose plot ends from earlier in the series, but they’ve left things open for her to return next season. (Wow, no shit.)

It’s great that Britney has helped save the show, and she is funny on it, but if I see her character with a yellow umbrella, I swear to God…
