How I Met Your Mother Season 7 Scoop: Explosive Barney Episodes Ahead!

by at . Comments

Wait... Barney is getting married?!? That was the reaction most How I Met Your Mother fans shared following Monday's surprising season finale.

What does the future hold for Neil Patrick Harris' perpetual bachelor? Producer Craig Thomas tells TV Line his show will revisit Barney's past with Robin in “complicated and juicy” fashion next year, while reminding viewers this wedding simply takes place at some point in the future.

"How does Barney get to that place??" Thomas asks. "What changes him? What makes him want to do this? Who’s he marrying? How did they get there? What’s going on on that wedding day? Is he happy? Is he nervous? Is this going to go forward? Is it going to be a disaster?... I will tease that in November sweeps of Season 7, where there will be four huge episodes for Barney. It will involve Robin, and there will be some very explosive relationship stuff happening."

The producer also offered up two other spoilers:

  1. The season seven premiere will be "wedding-themed" and take us back to those future nuptials.
  2. Marshall and Lily will be "joyous and happy" as they embark on parenthood.

I hope Ted ends up with Robin. I was so happy when they were dating before but then they broke up but was still feeling something between them. Please let them end up togethhhhhher.

Also Robin hasnt finished with her secret crush that we meet in the episode with Barney and his dad at the clubs so it cannot be Robin who barney is marrying

It cant be barney and robin's wedding because in one of the episodes in season 6, he promises to be Robins best man at her wedding and as he is Barney's best man it cant be Robin who he is marrying therefore it must be Quinn

Here is what I can piece together. We know from the trilogy episode Ted has his daughter by 2015 (assuming it is spring when they do the Star Wars trilogy, only time that it would make sense with the way the seasons run and that it started during a college semester) The baby had to be conceived in early 2014 or end of 2013 because it is a few months old. Assuming Ted did not sleep with the mother and get her pregnant first night they have to meet at the end of the 2012-2013 season. We know they meet at Barney's wedding that has been stated. So the wedding scenes we see are next year. First I don't think Barney can stand an entire year with Quinn stripping. I think it is very plausible we will see Barney ask Quinn to marry him (he is on the verge). But something will happen and we will see Robyn as the bride the end of this season with no explaination. During the next season Don (noticed not called Uncle Don) will come back. That and the engagement will cause all sorts of issues. Robyn will probably leave to Spain(like she did to Japan)remember Ted said she went there and was even once a bullfighter. He says "now that is an interesting story" meaning he will probably get back to it like with the goat. I think the season will focus more on Barney and Robyn working things out. Why do I think this. Well one timing something has to make Barney's wedding be the end of next season and also the whole story started with Ted meeting Robyn. To start the story with Robyn coming into the group she has to play a key role in Ted meeting the mother. Robyn is a key, if the Mother is somehow connected to Barney the reason starting with Robyn would be because Barney marries Robyn. The mother being Barney's sister is plausible to me she fits more then any other connection to the group and there has to be a reason for her to be at Barney's wedding.

Barney will marry Karma, and Ted does not marry Robin because he meets the Mom through the college he works at she is also the roommate of the college student he dated.

Here is what I see happening in this season's finale... The next few episodes really build up Barney's love for Quinn. And then in the finale, Barney proposes to her! It seems like that would be the end, but we get one more scene.... That scene from last year where Ted is with Barney before his wedding, giving him advice on his tie. Then Ted is called to see the bride. Ted walks into the room and her back is turned to him. Ted says something and she turns around, revealing Robyn! Then it ends right there as a cliffhanger! We then have to wonder all summer and most of next year how that comes to fruition. I think that something like that would be the best way for them to end on a cliffhanger, and all the while move the story forward towards when ted finally meets his wife.

so, you guys remember the episodes "False Positive" and "Best Man"? In False Positive Robin asks Ted to be the best man at her wedding...the second to last scene. Fast forward to "Best Man", where is Robin at Barney's wedding? Why does Lily tell Ted the bride wants to see him. The only reason Robin wouldn't be there is if she is really upset - which wouldn't be good for the series, and I'm not sure how they could write themselves into that story line...because we know they are all friends later in life. Also, Robin is tough, she went to Teds wedding to Stella. So I think Barney marries Robin. Ted is a little upset at the wedding, or seems pensive. But if he meets his future wife - we know he will be happy immediately.

Robin will marry her secret crush because the show said that they were not finished with him
Ted's wife was shown on the irish day episode
Barney will marry Karma(the stripper)

Also... I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT SOME PEOPLE STILL THINK ROBIN IS THE MOTHER! She can't have kids, for the love of god!! And Ted says she won't have kids. EVER. My opinion? The mother is the bass player at Barney's wedding. Honest. How awesome would that be? About Barney's wedding... Well, no idea. I hope it's not Robin. It would be too boring and predictable, and two "awesomes" cancel each other. It could be Quinn... it would be interesting.

2. Well. The writers know our theories. I've read interviews where they actually joke about some theories. Including this one! Now think of the series and tell me: do you really think that the writers would do something their audience has been expecting for so long just like they expected to? Or will they try to totally blow our mind and make us yell 'WOOO DID NOT SEE THAT COMING'??
What I thing is that Barney's sister is a red herring. Just like the Bump Girl. And if they ever thought of turning her into the mother... they surely changed their mind. Unless they're freaking trolls and want us to think like I thought. It's a possibility :P
