We are inching ever closer to the September 24 premiere of “How I Met Your Mother” season 8, and for diehard fans this really means one thing — making the window for speculation smaller and smaller when it comes to the Barney / Robin wedding that is going to be happening at some point in the show’s future.
It has already been revealed that at least part of the premiere (entitled “Farhampton”) will take place in the future at this big event … but a new photo that has hit the internet suggests that there could be some major trouble down the road. If you head on over to Entertainment Weekly, you can see a shot of what appears to be Barney seemingly trying to climb out of the window. Is this really what is happening here? It’s hard to tell, but the only other scenario is that somebody is trying to yank him out the window (and that seems pretty close to impossible).
Based on everything that we have heard, we assume that Barney and Robin are actually going to make it to the altar — and what we may be looking at here instead is a momentary panic attack from a guy who has been a notorious womanizer over the years. We are already going to see his engagement to Quinn completely fall apart and it’s possible that he may also be looking back at some bad memories from its past.
As soon as this flashback is over in the premiere, then the real story will begin — which is the journey of how Barney and Robin go from being apart and in separate relationships to getting together and actually having a “happily ever after.”
What sort of problem do you anticipate happening during this wedding? We want to hear some of your theories below! If you want to check out a full synopsis of the season 8 premiere, be sure and head on over to this link.
