‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 spoilers: Lily drops a bomb in promo

Just after we shared some big-time scoop about an upcoming pet-themed episode of “How I Met Your Mother” season 8, the first official promo for the new season has arrived; and based on everything we have seen in here so far, it appears as though we are going to have plenty of laughs coming our way pretty soon.

While there is no answer to the much-discussion question of “who is the mother?” yet, there is plenty of other good stuff in here, from Barney’s attempts to run away from his future wedding to Robin to him trying to make his present wedding to Quinn as ridiculous as humanly possible. We also catch a glimpse of what may be the beginning of the end for this newly-engaged couple, as Lily accidentally (or at least as “accidental” as the world’s worst keeper of secrets can make it) ends up making it known to Becki Newton’s character that Barney and Robin have a history that she doesn’t know about that. As for why Barney has kept this part of his past a secret, we have a pretty good guess why: he does not want her to realize that there are still some sort of feelings there that are bubbling underneath the surface. Luckily for Quinn, Robin will be distracted at least in the early portion of this season by a new boyfriend played by Michael Trucco.

This premiere episode is going to be entitled “Farhampton,” but there is still no indication yet as to what exactly this is supposed to mean. One thing we can at least say? Despite so many changes to the show including Marshall and Lily having a baby, the show looks to be as funny as ever.

What do you think about this promo? We want to hear from you below, and be sure to also head over to this link to find out some more premiere teasers courtesy of Josh Radnor.
