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.

May I say the theory that Ted is marrying Barney's sister is perfect. Really. Everything about it fits perfectly.
And that's why I honestly doubt it'll turn out to be true. For two reasons, mainly:
1. The show has always had that "you know those things that happen on TV? They don't really happen in real life"quality. The writers love to say that reality isn't clean, predictable and ideal. It's messy. It's... complicated. It's screwed up. Idk, but... Ted marrying his Bro's sister? It's a little bit too Friends for me. Too simple. Like I said: it fits waay to perfectly to be real.

well first of all its deff barney and robin getting married... we all hope!! Just because ted says aunt robin and uncle barney doesnt necessarily mean that they are the ones who got married. do you have kids? well if you do you know that your best friends are always aunt or uncles to your kids. but hopefully your right anyway! i would love to see barney and robin get together and get married. of course not that stripper hes going after now.

I`m rooting for Barney and Robin! They better end up together or I wil loose all faith in love=D

Please stop saying that because Ted refers to Barney and Robin as Uncle Barney and Aunt Robin that it means they must get married and Ted must marry Barney's sister. He also refers to Marshall and Lily as Uncle Marshall and Aunt Lily. Watch the whole show instead of just the things you decide must be super secret clues.

I also feel robin will be the mom. Teds daughter looks so much like robin. The hair and all. May be in the end she finds a treatment for her children problem.
Aunt robin talk is still a mystery lol.

PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE! ROBIN AND TED ARE OVER OVER OVER! PAY ATTENTION!!!!!! AUNT ROBIN! NOT AUNT MOM! SHE IS NOT THE MOTHER!!!!!!!! BARNEY MARRIES ROBIN! THEY ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER! DUH DUH DUH.

he is always saying uncle barney and aunt robin, so yes, its robin and barney getting married. YUP! My husband and I have made every prediction about this show and not ONCE have we been wrong. this show is funny as heck

personally, i do not think that the mother's name is Tracey cause he has messed names up before so he could have just changed a name to throw them off and to mess with them. I think that Robin marries Barney and since there has been rumors of casting for Barneys kids i think that either they adopt, use a surrogate, we find out Robin's test results are wrong, or she experinces one of those things where someone was told they can't get pregnant, but somehow does anyway.

let me rephrase my last comment. The kids call Robin, Aunt Robin, so she is not the mom. Barney is possibly marrying Robin, but not Nora, because he cheated on her with Robin. I dont thinks its Robin, but i do hope, because no one has mentioned if Barney or Robin knew the mom before ted. Some people think the mom could be Barney's sister, I think so too, because his ex that was roomies with her was in college and Barney's sister is in college, according to his dad. So that make me think that Barney is marrying Robin, because Barney invited her not the bride. Yes Barney does get married before Ted, ik this because he meets the mom at his wedding. I also know the moms name is Tracy if you dont believe me please watch the first thanksgiving episode in season 1.

Everyone has some valid imput on this whole thing, i dont beleive that robin is the mom, because they call her aunt robin. Barney might be marrying robin its about 50/50 for, i onlythink that becuz ted supposedly merts the mom at that wedding and they havent mentioned if robin or barney or anybody knew her before he did
