Barney loses a "slap bet," which permits Marshall to slap him in the face five times at any given time in the future, whenever Marshall chooses, which he does twice during this season.The first in the same episode, and second when Barney puts on a show. It is revealed that Barney has a gay, black brother (Wayne Brady). Barney believes that Bob Barker is his father and takes a trip to California to be a contestant on The Price is Right. Everyone discovers Robin was a Canadian teen pop star in the early 90s, with a hit single "Let's Go To The Mall". The music video is viewed by Barney hundreds of times.

In the season finale, Ted reveals to Barney that he and Robin have been broken up for some time due to their conflicting views on marriage. They didn't tell anyone in order to avoid taking attention away from Lily and Marshall's wedding. The season ends with Barney excited at the prospect of Ted and himself being single guys on the town again.
