While the end of “How I Met Your Mother” season 8 could very well involve a wedding between Barney and Robin, the beginning of it is very much going to be about breakups. We know that Barney and Quinn are likely going to be calling it quits pretty early on this season, and Robin and her new man (played by Michael Trucco) are going to be doing the same soon.
So do we now know for sure when this is going to happen? Sort of; if nothing else, we are pretty sure we know the breakup spot for one of the show’s current couples that are doomed to fail. According to Zap2It, both Robin as well as Ted (who is with Victoria) are going to be visiting an ice cream parlor notorious for being a big-time breakup spot during the upcoming sixth episode of the show (entitled “Splitsville”). So what is going to happen here? While we don’t necessarily see both relationships ending within the span of the episode, we do know this: Robin needs some time between this relationship and when she gets back together with Robin, and Ted does have one more woman to get through (played by Abby Elliot) before he does end up meeting the person that is right for him.
If we had to guess right now, we’d figure that this episode will be curtains for Robin’s relationship … and possibly even Ted’s as well in some shape or form, even though we have heard that Ashley Williams is going to be around for at least a decent chunk of episodes this season.
Is there a part of you that is just a little bit sad that Victoria is not the answer to the question of “who is the mother”? We want to hear your thoughts below! If you want to check out some more scoop on the aforementioned wedding, you can do so by heading on over to the link here.
