When "How I Met Your Mother" fans learned that Season 9 would take place entirely over the course of Barney and Robin's wedding weekend, it left many wondering about the final season of the show.

Would fans get to see the relationship between Ted and the Mother, or will he just meet her in the very last episode? How can a season of 20-plus episodes span a three-day weekend? Would any unanswered plot points from previous seasons be forgotten?

At least one of those questions has now been answered thanks to Michael Ausiello of TVLine. In his Ask Ausiello column, a reader asked him if HIMYM fans would get to see the final two slaps of Marshall and Barney's Slap Bet in the ninth and final season, and Ausiello confirmed that the slaps would occur.

The Slap Bet, a favorite topic of fans, has been a long-running gag throughout the show that first appeared in Season 2 when Marshall and Barney made a bet about a secret that Robin was trying to hide from the group. Marshall won the bet and had five slaps with which to hit Barney for the rest of eternity.

Marshall used one slap right away and doled out three more of them during the next few seasons. In Season 7, he earned three more slaps and used two of them, which left him with the two he has headed into Season 9.

Fans also learned recently that Cristin Milioti, the actress who finally put a face to the Mother, would be a series regular in Season 9, the first time anyone but the principal five members of the cast received such status
