Sarah Chalke, Josh Radnor, How I Met Your Mother

Monty Brinton/CBS

Did you hear? How I Met Your Mother is over. Done. Kaput.

At least, that's what Neil Patrick Harris told me when we were on set for tonight's big wedding episode, where Ted (Josh Radnor) and Stella (Sarah Chalke) supposedly tie the knot after her friend's nuptials fall through.

"It's true," NPH said. "Ted and Stella finally get married. Yeah, there's your exclusive. They tie the knot. End of the show, right?"

Nooo....! It can't be, can it? Although, if Ted really is getting married, it does seem we've answered the question of who "the Mother" is, which is sort of like Lost explaining what "the Island" is, which certainly does seem to be a series-ending reveal.

After more digging on set and peeks at tonight's episode (which you can watch below), here's what I can share...

Scoop Bonus: Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) is trying to keep Little Barney in his pants for everyone but Robin (Cobie Smulders), and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) will be his Yoda. (If Yoda really liked to mock and laugh at Luke Skywalker's futile attempts to harness the Force...)

According to NPH: "Barney Stinson needs to drink some tang. And by that I mean Robin Scherbatsky. Well it's no secret at the end of season three that he has some more feelings for Robin. By feelings I mean downstairs, you know what I'm talking about? And so I think a yoga retreat seems the perfect location, what with the legs-behind-the-ears poses and things, to make that kind of move. So that's my plan." Dirty plan! (Good, but dirty.)

The Scoop: Ted and Stella's "couples telepathy" fails more than once during the wedding weekend.

Spoiler Bonus: Ted's ex is not the only ex who crashes this party.

Spoiler Bonus: Aww, look at Ted and Stella in total postnuptial bliss. They must be so happy...right? Well, here's what Josh Radnor and Sarah Chalke had to say on set:

J.R.: We can neither confirm nor deny our marriage.
S.C.: There was a potential yoga retreat wedding ceremony going on.
J.R.: I put on a tux. She put on a wedding dress.
S.C.: There were boutonnieres.
J.R.: Guests assembled.

Check out what really goes down tonight on CBS at 8:30.
