We already know that the season 8 premiere of “How I Met Your Mother” on September 24 is going to feature yet another flashforward to the wedding of Barney and Robin — but as it turns out, this is not going to be the only time that the show looks forward by any means in the months ahead.
According to a report from E! News, the fourth episode of the upcoming season is going to look ahead at certainly key moments in the life of one Marvin Waitforit Ericksen, as we start to see just how Barney, Ted, and Robin have an impact of Marshall and Lily’s baby. Hopefully with this, we will also get a few other questions answered — including whether or not Marshall and Lily have more kids by this time, and if Barney and Robin end up really going the distance as a couple.
Marvin was born at the end of last season, and some of the early episodes this time are going to focus on how the gang adjusts to someone within their ranks having a new responsibility — which is going to limit their time in more ways than such things as work had previously. This will likely yield to some insecurity as Ted, Barney, and Robin find themselves alone more often than in the past — but when it comes to this show, everything has a tendency to work out without too much of a problem.
Are you exciting to see so much of the gang’s future — even without knowing the answer to the frustrating question of “who is the mother”?
