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.

Really can't wait for the new season, lots of twists recently with the Barnacle and I have high hopes. I'm swinging for Robin and Barney to get married, makes perfect sense to me lol. As far as the little tiny details from past seasons it's a T.V. show come on they've been swinging this thing for 7 seasons now hopefully a 8th on the horizon. Ted hasn't met the mother yet fyi they have a video on CBS.com saying Robin isn't the mom guys geez.

One more thing!
I just remembered in season one, the episode "Belly full of turkey." The stripper tells Ted her name is Tracy and Future Ted then says "And that kids is how I met your mother."
Maybe her name is Tracy? I've heard people debate this before, I think it's very possible.

Some of you need to listen to Ted in the future when he talks, he always tells you little things about the mother.
1. The mother is Cindy's roommate, he's said that. The girl at the bar that Cindy ended up with was not the roommate. Ted just believed she was at the time.
2. The Mother is part of the economics class Ted accidentally goes into the first episode of season 5.
3. Ted had her yellow umbrella for a few years after the St Patricks Day party but left it back at her apartment (or whatever) when Cindy broke up with him.
4. Robin is NOT the mother. I don't know why people are still convinced she is, he refers to her as Aunt Robin. It's possible that he might end up with her later, but she is not the mother of his children. But I think that's unlikely to as when he sees Wendy the Waitress in the future, he refers to his wife and their kids.
5. Ted meets the mother at a wedding, most likely Barney's, I think Punchy's wedding was just a distraction in season six. But Robin also asked Ted to be her best man, so maybe he'll end up meeting the mother at her wedding.
We'll just have to wait and find out, cannot wait until season seven! :)

Here is what I think in regards to Robin and Ted... I don't believe Robin is the mother of Ted's kids. That is obvious. Anything else would mean the writers have holes all over that script. However, I do think Ted and Robin will ultimately end up together. If you have ever seen "Definitely, Maybe," you would see a script with a similar theme. The entire movie has a girls father explaining to her who her mother is. The end though has an interesting twist, which ends with her mom being the woman you hope she wouldn't be. Later you find out that her mom and dad got divorced and her dad ended up with the woman you were hoping for in the movie. This show is called, "How I met your mother," not How I met my wife. In conclusion, I think the story is indeed about another woman, but later he ends up with their Aunt Robin again. The reason that they probably know her as Aunt Robin is because when he originally married their mother, Robin would have to be called Aunt Robin because she was still Ted's friend. This is just a theory, but I'm certainly not an expert. =)

It is not Barney's and Robin's wedding. If u remember in one of episodes in season 6 after Robin's break up with Don, Robin was all weeping, sobbing, crying she and Ted was sitting on sofa when she asked him if he would like to be hers best man (at her wedding someday). So if he is Barney's best man it could not be theirs (Barney's and Robin's) wedding. Plain and simple. I hope Ted meets "mother" by the end of season 7, or i will stop watching the show.

- kevin : dude i see your point, but i thought the producer said things that involve robin probably the four huge episodes for barney, not barney's wedding. . Does it? And for ted's future wife, i'm sure that they'll meet at barney's wedding. .

I think Barney marries Nora and because Nora and Robin are friends(that is how barney met Nora ) Robin is the maid of honor and she is involved in the wedding

What if Barney marries Robin's sister, Katie I think she's called??
No evidence, but Robin would be probably maid of honour, so with the bride which shows why she's not in the wedding scenes. Plus the producers said his wedding would involve Robin. As for the mother, I actually like the theory about it being Victoria from season 1. Met at a wedding, and then she lives with your woman, whoever you call her. I also think Barney's gonna meet his sister, and she's gonna be a lot like him. Didn't he say that girls with ly are Dirty. And he's going to become a very protective brother

Well i guess barney would weds robyn, just read the spoiler that the producer gave us. He said that 'marshall and lily will be "joyous and happy" as they embark on parenthood.' and what else could made them that way than see their two best friends weds for each other, like they already did when they ask barney and robin for a double date. . nora could be a 'decoy' because when barney and robin tried to stop ted when he's going back with zoe, they seemed 'completing' each other with their 'advice' (well, just a thought)
