'How I Met Your Mother's' season finale...wait for it

After flashbacks, flash-forwards and pointless (yet hilarious) tales of friendship, “How I Met Your Mother” managed to tie up its seventh season in a pretty little bow.

Like, the kind of bow you might see on, say, a wedding gown…

(This is the part where you stop reading if you don’t want to know what happened last night on the CBS sitcom’s highly anticipated, one-hour season finale.)

Hillary Clinton lets Jason Segel down easy

Fans are still waiting to meet the mom on "How I Met Your Mother," but (spoiler alert?) it's not going to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"How I Met Your Mother" star Jason Segel says he's been pulling for Clinton to portray the mysterious titular mom on the series when he's asked about the character on red carpets, and has even said that he wants to make a movie with her (title? "Sarah Marshall 2: This Time It's Personal").

But Clinton's since politely declined his offer with a rejection letter, as the actor explained to Jimmy Fallon last week.

Katie Holmes as 'HIMYM's' slutty pumpkin

Katie Holmes as 'HIMYM's' slutty pumpkin

Are you in the scantily-clad costume day Halloween spirit yet? If not, maybe Katie Holmes can help.

The actress will be on Monday's Halloween edition of "How I Met Your Mother" as the "slutty pumpkin" that Ted (Josh Radnor) has been hoping to reconnect with since episode six.

Finally, this hard to find love interest is unmasked, and we find out that her name is Naomi and that it apparently takes her a few drinks before she breaks out in her best tootsie roll.

Creator Craig Thomas told Vulture when he and Carter Bays announced the casting in September that Holmes "is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we've saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show's history."

Watch Holmes don the slutty pumpkin wear on the October 31 episode of "How I Met Your Mother," on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.

An old face returns on 'HIMYM'

An old face returns on 'HIMYM'

Monday night's one hour season premiere of "How I Met Your Mother" - actually two episodes - was hit or miss for me.

The first episode was a hit. It really felt like the show had gotten its groove back with a classically structured "HIMYM," a flashback within a flashback, of Punchy's long-awaited, disastrous wedding.

All of the business with Ted trying to avoid yet another embarrassing toast, Lily trying to hide her pregnancy, and Robin's rekindled feelings for Barney worked brilliantly. It didn't hurt that Robin and Barney had a show-stopping dance number in the middle of the episode, either.
