Rachel Bilson reprised her role on 'How I Met Your Mother' as Cindy, a woman with an important connection to the person that protagonist Ted eventually marries. Bilson currently stars on the TV show 'Hart of Dixie.'
The newest episode of the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” featured a guest turn by actress Rachel Bilson, who appeared at the end of the episode to offer an important clue about the identity of the titular mother.
The central mystery of the show has long been who narrator Ted ends up marrying – the show is structured as if Ted is telling the story to his children many years in the future. In the past, audience members had learned that the woman that becomes the mother of Ted’s children was at one point the roommate of Rachel Bilson’s character Cindy.
At the end of the newest episode, Ted (Josh Radnor) was on the subway and complaining to Cindy that the band for his friends’ wedding had fallen through and they needed someone immediately.
