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.

The mother is NOT Robin, she can't have children. Its already been a major episode after she has a pregnancy scare with Barney. The doctor confirmed. But I do want Robin and Barney to get married. They are a hot mess together..

There is too much dishonesty in Nora and Barney's relationship for me to think that they, as a pair, would be a good idea! However, Robin knows the good, bad and ugly...I think they honestly love each other...but it makes me nervous that last time, it didn't end well, too.

Just a thought (because Robin has to be the mom) - the show is titled How I Met Your Mother, not How I Met the Woman Who Became Your Mother. Ted says that he would tell his kids everything, and the series began with Robin. Robin will be the mom; however, Robin is not yet the mother. Ted will not meet the mother until the first child is born.

@ Duryel That maybe true about Barney's sister being in College but Ted also calls Marshal and Lily Aunt and Uncle and there is no relation so it is obviously just a close friend thing not a 'family' thing

watch episode12 of season 3............ "no tomorrow"..... ted just acidentally passes by a girl in the club.he says"sorry!" and she replies"it's ok".............that girl is the mother!!!!!!!!!!!!

i have guessed correctly at many endings to series, and i got that robin wasn't the mother since episode 1, and my guess at the barney story is robin is the bride. I get the idea that ted must be robin's best man but if you remember, when lilly called ted, she said 'best man' she did not even say whose best man so it's a moot point. Mark my words - barney marries robin!

@Emma If you listened to the conversation when Barney went to his dads house to have dinner with his family, his dad mentioned that Barney has a step sister that is currently in college.

The recent episodes make me lean towards Robin. I don't love that idea because of how their relationship ended last time. There is chemistry, yes, but they just don't seem healthy for each other. The thing that is throwing me off is the other guy that Future Ted alluded to. Remember that episode where they take Barney's dad out for drinks and Robin is "engaged" to Ted and they meet her secret crush? At the end of the episode, Future Ted says that we will hear more about him later...

I don't want barney to get married so soon, plus if he actually gets married before ted, it would be kind of ironic. But if ever they decide to marry off barney anyway, then my choice for his bride would be robin. they're a cute pair. if it's not robin, then someone like Lily who is cute and sweet? and no i do not mean nora. I've always thought that Lily and Barney are kind of cute(although Lily is already perfect with Marshall), why? because of that episode when they live together, Lily got Barney to willingly redecorate his place and act all married, and that episode where they kissed was so cute. Also Lily is sweet but kind of manipulative like Barney is, nora is too much of a saint and barney can't be the same barney with her. in conclusion-don't marry him off yet. if you do-then marry him with robin. and ted's wife better be prettier than cindy and more likeable than victoria-yep there has to be pressure. she's like the whole point of the show so...

I think that its the wedding of Barney and Robin because in 'False Positive' Robin said that she would want Ted to be the best man at her wedding, plus if it was Nora Barney was marrying why would she ask to see Ted? But i could just be reading into things because i want barney and Robin to be together *Shrugs* They're cute and funny.
