  • AS THE GANG PREPARES TO LEAVE FOR BARNEY AND ROBIN’S WEDDING, THE BRIDE AND GROOM-TO-BE’S RELAXING NIGHT OUT IS COMPROMISED BY THE WORLD’S MOST ANNOYING COUPLE, ON THE EIGHTH SEASON CLIFFHANGER FINALE OF “HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER,” MONDAY, MAY 13

Something New 7
“Something New” — As the gang prepares to head out to Robin and Barney’s wedding, Ted invites Lily to see the house he's finally finished fixing up. Meanwhile, Robin and Barney’s night of relaxation is ruined by an obnoxious couple, and Marshall takes the baby on a last-minute trip to Minnesota to see his family, on the eighth season cliffhanger finale of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, Monday, May 13 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

  • Something New 3
    Take a look at this recently released photo from the season-eight finale.Lily has something that Robin wants for her wedding, and as you can tell from the pic, it's causing some friction between the best friends. And in case you were wondering, yes, the mother does come into play in the season finale.[1]
  • "Please hold your exasperated sighs until the end of the answer. Lily will learn that Ted is still — still! -- uncomfortable with Barney and Robin's impending nuptials and thinks it's time to make a big move. (Siiii... no, not yet!) This scene will also show us Ted's newly renovated house, so at least we'll see some progress in Ted's life. OK, commence with the exasperated sighs."[2]
  • Aptly titled "Something New," the finale takes place during the week leading up to Barney and Robin's wedding, which finds the future Mr. and Mrs. Stinson bumping into a couple (Casey Wilson and Keegan-Michael Key ) at a restaurant, Marshall taking Marvin Jr. to Minnesota and Lily being offered a new job. As for the Mother, Ted will make a game-changing decision that will set up — and reset — the series for the final season. Remember, he was 45 days away from meeting her in March, and we know how HIMYM likes to stick to its timelines… [3]
  • "The majority of the episode takes place a week before the wedding" reveals Bays. So whether viewers will witness Barman and Robin getting hitched or will meet Ted's future wife remains to be seen. Whatever the finale holds, "there will definitely be some big changes next year," maintains Bays. "It'll still be the same show, but kind of a more extreme version." Until then, look for Ted to show off his spruced-up house and for Robin and Barney's relaxing night to be ruined by an obnoxious couple (Happy Endings Casey Wilson and Mad TVs Keegan-Michael Key). Elsewhere, "Marshall's sadistic brother Marcus returns to inflict more bodily harm" on his bro during a trip to Minnesota with little Marvin. [4]

  • Question: Any How I Met Your Mother scoop about Barney and Robin? —Anette
Ausiello: First comes love, then comes marriage, but in-between, there’s… cohabitation! In “The Fortress of Barnitude,” Barney — presumably in preparation for moving in with his fiancée — holds an open house in hopes of unloading his bachelor pad. (Cue flashbacks to one-night stands in 3, 2… ) Somehow, along the way, at least one potential buyer is given the impression that Ted and Marshall are a couple — and Lily, an intolerant homophobe.[7]

    Extended Preview

    Brad and Marshall face off over a case dealing with pollution at Lake Frog. The problem is that all the jurors are women, and all of them--as well as the male judge--seem to favor the hunky Brad, who actively tries to make himself attractive to them. To make his case, Brad produces a shady expert witness who claims that the pollution is actually beneficial to the animals and environment at the lake. However, Marshall wins the Lake Frog case by revealing that Brad got an ugly rash from swimming in the lake, turning off the jurors who had been mesmerized by him earlier
    Meanwhile, the gang hangs around at the courthouse, where their criminal records of the past are revealed:
  1. The bailiff makes a remark about seeing Barney in cuffs, confirming everyone's belief that he's got a long criminal record, but it turns out it's because he saw Barney perform a magic act in them
  2. Robin flashes back to her wild pop star days, lashing out against a Mountie who politely asked her to turn down the music in her hotel room. But she's lying, and actually got a "Quietest/Most Respectful Guest" award from the hotel.
  3. Lily asks a courtroom clerk to look up her juvie record, but finds nothing on file, but Lily was actually the neighborhood bully and badass.
Also there is a flashforward, where it seems like Marshall is on trial, but it turns out that the judge sitting in judgment over him is actually evaluating Marshall's qualifications to be a judge[15]
  • Robin Sparkles' return is not so much about going to the mall. It's more like, let's go on the road, eh? The episode will offer a glimpse into what life on tour was like for the Canadian teen sensation.[16]

    How I Met Your Mother - The Stamp Tramp (Sneak Peek)

    Sneak Peek of the Episode

    One storyline has Barney in search of a new strip club to frequent, now that the Lusty Leopard brings painful memories. Owners of other strip clubs try to convince him that theirs is the place to visit, including one who makes his pitch with some heavy, Moneyball-style stats, and another who owns "Golden Oldies" a seniors strip joint. The owner of the Lusty Leopard also tries to change Barney's mind.
    The other storyline involves a felafel-stand owner who went to college with Ted, Lily, and Marshall; turns out that he had (and still has) a crush on Lily, and credits her with introducing him to felafels.
    This episode also brings back Brad for the beginning of an arc that finds him and Marshall on opposite sides of a pollution case, continuing in the following episode.[17]
  • When Joe Manganiello returns to the show, prepare to see Brad rocking a look you haven’t seen from him before. (And I’m not just talking about his facial hair, which is new for the previously clean-shaven character.)[18]
  • Looks like Barney will be moving on from Quinn really quickly after their inevitable breakup, because he'll be courted by not one, not two, but three suitors. OK, "suitors" isn't exactly the right term for it. Three strip joints (including his old haunt the Lusty Leopard) will be vying for Barney's business in the seventh episode of the season, and using every dirty trick in the book to win him over. How else do you move on from a broken engagement than with dancing girls on poles?[19]

    "Splitsville" refers to a new dessert bar in town that becomes a favorite spot for dumping one's significant other. Someone we know gets dumped (mouse over the bottom of the post for the big spoiler), but gets somewhat consoled when they go home with dumpees of the opposite sex.
    The B-story is about a workplace basketball tournament, which sees Marshall's team face off against a team of accountants who have a seven-foot-tall Cameroonian ringer. Ted himself is a member of an all-architect team, "The T-Squares," but these architecture nerds are woefully bad at the game.[21]

  • We give the audience a glimpse, a flash forward into that future Barney and Robin wedding day, deeper than we've ever gone before. We give them a hint of how the series ends. It's one of those things where you get a chill writing it and shooting it. Will that activate the exact ending of How I Met Your Mother? It doesn't have to, but it could. There may be some yellow involved. It's cloudy with a chance of yellow in the season premiere. There's a genuine gasp moment in the premiere of season eight, where I think the fans will be on the floor about what we're showing them.[27]
  • It will contain another flashforward to Barney's Wedding.[28]
  • It will air on September 24, 2012. [29]
  • The season premiere picks up right where we left off in May, with Ted and Victoria — a runaway bride — driving off into the sunset. Suddenly, Ted is struck by horrible guilt over the fact that he was left at the altar back in season 4 and now finds himself on the other end of that dubious equation,” he says. “So the entire premiere takes place on that day in May — a first for us, starting a season that way — and then episode two jumps us through the summer and into September.[30]
  • Our premiere picks up right on the same day in May that most of the finale takes place on. It'll be our first episode where we tell a whole story that's still back in May because there's so much stuff going on. ... One of the exciting incidents is Ted's story. Ted got left at the altar by Stella (Sarah Chalke), so we pick up on Ted and Victoria driving off into the sunset and Ted casually asks Victoria, "Hey, what did you say in that note that you left for Klaus?" And she sort of awkwardly says, "I didn't leave a note." Ted, being Ted Mosby, who has a very heightened sense of what is right, says, "You gotta leave a note! I got left at the altar, but at least I got a note! The note is very helpful!" So he turns the car around and they're gonna leave a note for poor, abandoned Klaus. The episode sort of sparks from Ted's decision to turn the car around. Ultimately, we'll see if that's a good idea. That's such a Ted Mosby decision. We did want to tend to the fact that we did see him on the other end of this equation of a runaway bride. Episode 801 will be all on that day.[31]
  • It will be our first season premiere that's still set in May, because we have so much to explain about what happened in the finale. We ended the season finale with a lot of, for lack of a better term, mindfucks. So we'll have to do a whole episode stuck in that timeframe. And then in episode 8x02, we jump ahead to the fall and catch up with everyone.[32]

Casting NewsEdit

Episode TitlesEdit

OthersEdit

  • October, will be a month of breakups. [70]
  • In the fourth episode of HIMYM's new season we will flashforward to older versions of Lily and Marshall's son Marvin! Three separate times, actually. And we'll be seeing how Ted, Barney and Robin influence his life, so maybe we will see how happily married those two are! [71]
  • CBS made a NEW Slap countdown, This site currently features a countdown to May 6, 2013 17:27. This date would coincide with the airing of one of the final episodes of season 8, so it may be for a finale or the day we finally meet the mother since How I Met Your Mother is renewed for season 9.
  • How I Met Your Mother was renewed for a ninth and final season which will most likely show during 2013 and 2014.

Questions from fansEdit

  • Question: Got a How I Met Your Mother slap bet update? —Kelley
Ausiello: Slap No. 7 will hit when you least expect it, according to exec producer Craig Thomas. “I don’t want to say exactly when the slaps are going to happen, but my personal opinion is if the very last moment of the entire series was a slap and you just cut to black, I’d be happy,” he tells us. “I don’t want to say where, when or how, but there’s more slap action coming.” Bonus HIMYM scoop: The show is rapidly aging Lily and Marshall’s son for a series of a flash-forward sequences. We’ll see Marvin at age 2 when he blurts out his first word, then again at age 6 when he’s facing a crisis at home, and then finally at age 13 when he suffers his first heartbreak.
  • Question: Will Barney’s Ducky Tie return on HIMYM this season? —Javiera
Ausiello: Sounds like it. “How I Met Your Mother is a bad horror movie,” says Thomas with a laugh. “Everything comes back at some point. You think it’s dead, and it just rears up at you one more time.” [72]
  • Question: Loved Monday’s How I Met Your Mother season finale! I’m happy Barney and Robin will tie the knot. But I’m wondering… will the marriage actually last? If you don’t have an actual answer, at the very least, what are your thoughts/feelings on the matter? —Rebecca
Ausiello: Loved the finale, love them together and my gut tells me the marriage will last. In related news, HIMYM co-creator Craig Thomas tells us that a certain iconic ’80s pop star may put in an appearance at the couple’s wedding reception. “If you’re Robin and you’re getting married and you’ve got a few drinks in you, how do you not get up and sing, “Let’s Go to the Mall” one last time?” the boss man muses when asked about the return of Robin Sparkles. “Maybe we’ll do it on her wedding day.”[73]
  • Even though we know she's not going to end up with him, what's the scoop on Robin's new boyfriend ? How do they meet? — Sophia
ADAM: Who's to say they haven't already met? "Don't count out the fact that he could be a blast from the past," co-creator Craig Thomas tells us. New face or old, you can look for him to stick around a while after the romance kicks off early next season. "It's not a fling or anything," Thomas says. "Robin went through a lot this year [with her pregnancy scare and near-engagement to Kevin] and she knows what she wants now. It's going to be a very serious and significant relationship in her life. She's moving on from Barney and she believes she's over him ... but this guy and their relationship will redirect her back to him."[74]
  • Are Marshall and Lily just gonna keep on bringing their baby to the bar ? — Chris
ADAM: Parents of the Year, right? Although series boss Craig Thomas tells us that the Eriksens will struggle with fitting the baby into their social life, don't expect to see Marvin Wait For It every week. "You just can't shoot with little babies that much, so we'll have Marvin now and then, but definitely not all the time," Thomas says. "We have a way for Marshall and Lily to stay part of the group even though they have something enormous making them stay at home." And let's not forget that they do have to go back to work sometime. "They will get help from the last place they'd expect," he says. Guesses? [75]
  • I'll take anything How I Met Your Mother-related that doesn't have to do with Robin and Barney — Michael
It's time to meet… the nanny! Newbie parents Marshall and Lily will be on the hunt for the perfect nanny to take care of their little one. Obviously, hilarity ensues. Some of the contenders include a very expensive, but qualified elderly woman, a young girl from Marshall's hometown whom Barney takes an interest in (of course he does!), a recently sober lady who can barely take care of cats and a trashy web-cam connoisseur. Good luck Marshall and Lily, sounds like you're going to need it! [76]
