How I Met Your Mother Season 8: A New Love Interest For...

by at . Comments

So that's Barney's bride!

The How I Met Your Mother season 7 finale delivered multiple surprises, from the return of Victoria to the reveal of Robin as the future Mrs. Stinson. Really, could it have been anyone else?

Now, in an interview with TV Line, executive producer Craig Thomas teases what it will all mean for season eight and beyond. Warning: spoilers ahead...

Barney, Ted and Robin at the Hospital

Will there be wedding bells? Yes. "There’s going to be twists and turns built into that day."

Will Quinn return? Yes, even though Becki Newton has been cast on The Goodwin Games. The Season 8 premiere will pick up on the same day as this finale. “There’s a lot of great stories to tell just in that one day," Thomas says. "Episode 2 will leap ahead to September, and we’ll see where everybody is four months later.”

There will be a "significant arc" for Robin involving a new love interest.

The Season 8 premiere will "show all of the ramifications of" Ted learning that Victoria did not leave a note for her fiancé upon leaving him and turning his car around to fix that.

i havn't watch th ep 1 of the season 8


what if... Barney and Robin are having a double wedding? ;-)


joint wedding


Really wish there is a twist and Quinn and barney are only getting married! Quinn is awesome, she is like a female barney! Don't get me wrong, I love robin but I want Quinn to be with barney :D and yes I totally agree Zooey deschanel would be a wonderful addition to the show!! :D


i realy think that robin & barny should get married and ted meet a new girld and marry her cuz barny and robin r gr8 togather !!!!!


theres differences that say otherwise with the wedding days, the first 1 its sunny, and the second 1 where its robins, its raining, and if you remember, ted had to make it rain to get robin and he did, i think the rain plays a huge significance, dont over look it. i did hope that ted would end up marrying robin but ah well :P


I hope season 8 ll show up with lots of end ups...i mean ending up of two if it happens also.....ted iz never gonna met his 'the one' c0z it only happens in a wedding....n thats wen barney or robbin weds.....but here's the twist...barney is always awesome n neva gonna do that!!bt by looking upto season 7 i feel like barney's legends r going to end up on robin's charm....s0 i h0pe seasön 8 brings a sweet moment in ted's it sud nt b The end.....i want this show 4ever.:D


the girl in pub himym3*12


Yes.. Ted will defiantly not marry her.
Ted's wife is one of his ex's room mates so.. I doubt it will happen like that. Barney and Robin will get married for sure!! I just hope season 8 isn't the end!!


what if quinn is going to be teds wife
