Everyone is pretty much waiting for a few things at the moment when it comes to “How I Met Your Mother” before the show drops the curtain for good: the revelation of who is the mother, Marshall and Lily finally settling down into family life, and the grand wedding that is happening between Barney and Robin at some point in the near future. Could it happen to close this season? Possibly and that is what Cobie Smulders is talking about now.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress did her best to tease the grand occasion that is coming up between her character and the reformed womanizer played by Neil Patrick Harris, saying that this is something that we are going to flash forward to on at least more than one occasion:
“We like to play with the timeline on our show … We’re shooting this scene at the beginning for the first episode, but it’s going to continue at the very end of the season. I feel like the wedding is going to come back at the end of the season, but am I walking down the aisle? I don’t know.”
The big reason for saying “I don’t know” here is pretty simple: the cast and the showrunners are still trying to figure out whether or not season 8 is going to be the end for the series. It’s still very much possible that the show could opt to keep going for one more year, but it would require some new contracts to be signed across the board. Regardless of the decision, we just hope that one is reached soon; “House” had to wait until the middle of last year before finding out that it was going to end at the end of the season, and the producers there had to scramble to come up with a fitting ending. Considering all the loose ends that are still out there when it comes to this show, we really hope that this doesn’t happen.
