‘How I Met Your Mother’ episode titles released, Robin Sparkles to return

Read the titles of two upcoming How I Met Your Mother season 8 episodes, as well as a spoiler about a new love interest for Barney!


CBS has revealed that the title of 8×09 will be “Lobster Crawl,” while 8×10 is called “The Over-Correction.”


Barney and Robin season 8 How I Met Your MotherMeanwhile, E! Online has a spoiler about a new love interest of Barney’s which will further delay the reunion of Barney and Robin which we’ve all been waiting for! They write, “Barney will start a relationship soon, and it’s with someone we’ve met in the past. Not only that, it’s someone who has pissed off Robin in the past. Cue the HIMYM fireworks!”


Who could it be? Our best guess would be Robin’s old co-star Jessica, who she sang “Two Beavers Are Better Than One” with, considering the following picture of Robin Sparles which Cobie Smulders tweeted out (with the caption, “Guess who’s back…”):


Robin Sparkles season 8 How I Met Your MotherThe return of Robin Sparkles has also been hinted at on TV Guide, as they preview the episode airing on November 19, entitled “Twelve Horny Women.” They write that the episode will, “offer a glimpse into what life on tour was like for the Canadian teen sensation.” Hopefully we’ll get another song from Robin Sparkles, whose first hits can of course be found on the officialHow I Met Your Mother soundtrack.


Who do you think Barney might be hooking up with, and are you excited for the new drama this will bring?

How I Met Your Mother returns Monday October 29 with the episode “The Autumn of Break-Ups.” The description reads:

With a rash of relationships on rocky ground, Ted and Victoria find themselves at a romantic crossroads, while Robin thinks Barney’s screwy when he decides to employ a dog as his wingman.

Will Ted and Victoria break up in this episode (which was previously titled “Pauses & Paws”)? We’ll have to wait and see…


‘How I Met Your Mother’ photo preview: Are Barney and Robin reuniting?

How I Met Your Mother” won’t be airing this Monday, but CBS has a treat to tide viewers over in the meantime. On Friday, the network has released new photos from the next two new upcoming episodes that will air on October 29 and November 5.

The first episode titled, “The Autumn of Breakups,” makes it sound like another couple is about to end things. Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Quinn (guest star Becki Newton) were the first couple to call it quits, which leaves Ted (Josh Radnor) and Victoria (guest star Ashley Williams) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Nick (guest starMichael Trucco) remaining in shaky relationships.

In this episode, Ted and Victoria have to decide what the next step is going to be in their complicated relationship. Meanwhile, the new pictures make it seem like Nick is doing a music video. Could that lead to problems with Robin? Or could the problem be that Robin’s attention is focused elsewhere? Robin is worried about Barney when she finds out that he’s using a dog as his new wingman.

The latter seems to be a continuing issue going into the November 5 episode called, “Splitsville.” This episode will find Robin thinking about breaking things off with Nick, but when she hesitates, Barney decides to step in. Could a reunion for the former couple be on the horizon? Take a look at the pictures and judge for yourselves.

How I Met Your Mother” airs Mondays at 7:00 p.m. CST on CBS.


Josh Radnor Reveals the Mother He Wants

How I Met Your Mother actor Josh Radnor has revealed what he would like to see when the mother is finally revealed. Josh stated that he does not want the How I Met Your Mother execs to go for a big name star just to boost the ratings and would rather it be someone that has not yet been in the show.
Radnor told Entertainment Weekly, “I don’t think it should be any sort of stunt casting. I think it would be more interesting to have this fresh, exciting face that Ted has never seen before and neither have people who watch the show.”
While Josh has revealed exactly what he would like to see from the writers when considering the role of the mother, he did also admit that he had no idea when How I Met Your Mother would end and who the mother is going to be, “It’s kind of better for me not to know. It serves me to be a little more naïve and just play that truthfully,” he added.
