‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 spoilers: One question answered

We wish we could say that the question mentioned above is “who is the mother” on “How I Met Your Mother,” but tragically, it is not. Instead, though, we do have some more scoop on an episode title that we told you about late last month in “Pauses and Paws.”

According to a brand-new report via Zap2It, it looks as though Barney is going to be the person who this title is about, as he ends up getting himself a four-legged friend. However, with this show you must also remember that not everything is what it seems, and the report suggests that whatever happens here in this story, it doesn’t end well for Barney. Our guess? He is either trying to pass off another animal as a dog and it fails spectacularly, or that he gets a hound who manages to eat and / or urinate on all of his belongings. Either way, it’s not good for a man who prides himself in looking good and “suiting up.”

As for why Barney would get a dog, the answer seems to be pretty simple: he could be lonely. We have a feeling that his relationship with Quinn is going to end sooner rather than later this season due to some of Becki Newton’s other commitments, and thanks to a relationship that Robin is in with a new man (Michael Trucco), he may not be able to get together with her for at least a little while.
