(CBS News) After teasing Barney's (Neil Patrick Harris) wedding for almost two years, "How I Met Your Mother" finally revealed the identity of his bride in last night's season finale.

SPOILER ALERT

In classic "How I Met Your Mother" fashion, there were some twists and turns on the way to the big reveal.

Barney heads on vacation with girlfriend Quinn (Becki Newton), but runs into trouble with TSA over his magic trick box. He is forced to perform the trick and it ends in a proposal to Quinn, who of course accepts. When the couple announces their big news to the gang, Barney jokes with Robin (Cobie Smulders), "Last chance to run away together."

Then, flash-forward to Barney's wedding and it isn't Quinn standing at the altar; instead, it's Robin.

Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) welcome their first child, whom they name Marvin Eriksen. While at the hospital, Robin and Ted rekindle their friendship and decide that he needs to reach out to his ex, Victoria (Ashley Williams), from the first season, who re-appeared  earlier this season.

Later, Victoria, wearing a wedding dress, suggests that she and Ted run off together. But, Ted who had been left at the altar before, suggests driving her back to the church. In the end, he changes his mind and the two drive off into the sunset.
