It's been over 14 years since the Pilot to How I Met Your Mother aired and we began our long, funny, heartbreaking, and legen--wait for it--dary journey with Ted, Barney, Marshall, Robin, and Lily. The show lasted nine seasons, ending its run in 2014.
The show followed its cast of 20 somethings in New York City on Ted's quest to find true love. As his heart was broken again and again, he turned to his friends for comfort, guidance, and laughs.
A lot happened between Ted's chance encounter with Robin in MacLaren's bar and his final meet-cute with the Mother. So much, in fact, that they were able to tell nine seasons' worth of stories from it.
While each season of How I Met Your Mother has its own distinct plot threads, supporting characters, and overarching themes, they don't tell separate stories, so it's hard to remember exactly what happened when.
Five and a half years after the show ended, piecing together its timeline is harder than ever. See if you can accept our challenge remember what season different HIMYM events happened in.
