So far on this season of How I Met Your Mother, there has been very little offering of The Mother. However, that is all set to change.

At the end of last season, we were all left with a massive cliffhanger when The Mother arrived in town, but despite all the hype, we’ve not seen an awful lot of her… until now!

The special 200th celebration episode is nearly upon us and is titled ‘How Your Mother Met Me’. As you all may have guessed from that title, the 200th episode will tell the story of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ from Cristin Milioti’s perspective.

Executive producer Craig Thomas has joked that we will be sick to death of seeing Milioti by the end of the season.

“You’re going to be so sick of her by the end [of the series],” he told TVLine.

Fellow Executive Producer Carter Bays went on to explain that the 100th episode was a celebration of the cast and that’s not to say the 200th episode won’t be, but it felt like the right time to tell a broader story of the show which has been running for 9 seasons.

He explained: “Our 100th episode was very much a celebration of the cast – not [that] the cast doesn’t deserve celebrating even more after 200 episodes – but this is a different kind of story.

“It’s about the tale. It felt like a different kind of 200th episode, but it felt like the right one to do in terms of the greater story of the show”.

The milestone episode isn’t set to air until 2014, but Thomas has said that “if she (Milioti) doesn’t get nominated for a guest Emmy for this episode, I don’t know what one has to do to get that. She’s fantastic in it. Anyone who wants more of her will love this episode”.

How I Met Your Mother continues on Monday evenings on CBS.
