'How I Met Your Mother' Writers Can't Tell You Whether Or Not The Mother Dies In The Finale

Posted: Updated:

'How I Met Your Mother' co-creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays gathered to discuss their show's series finale at PaleyFest on Friday, March 14, but they pretty much avoided all detail-oriented questions, including whether or not the mother (Cristin Milioti) dies in the finale.

Bays and Thomas initially stalled in writing the finale, but now the cast has shot the episode and all that's left are edits. Although, that's all these cryptic co-creators are willing to share.

Moderator of the panel Wayne Brady asked Thomas and Bays whether there was any truth to theories that the mother has been dead the entire time, to which Thomas replied: "I think one of the great things about 'How I Met Your Mother' is that it's surprising. It does really weird things sometimes ... We have been the worst interview in show business for years."

So, there you have it! Thomas and Bays are keeping their lips sealed, which means we are free to continue frantically speculating about every possible ending to the Mosby epic.

What did you think will happen in the series finale? Sound off in the comments.

"How I Met Your Mother" airs Mondays, 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
