‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 spoilers: Neil Patrick Harris says…

Just as we know that we will find out the answer to the key question of “who is the mother?” soon on “How I Met Your Mother,” we also already know that Barney and Robin are going to get get married likely by the end of the season (unless the show does manage to get picked up for a ninth season). With that in mind, we are getting close to an eighth season that is really about the journey more so than anything else.

So in addition to some recent scoop about how Barney and Robin are going to reunite on the show moving forward, we also have the following new comments from Neil Patrick Harris to E! News, where he does he best to explain some of the upcoming story:

“I know that we’ve sort of doing this whole season backwards so we’re starting the season with establishing that these relationships won’t work out … We’re flashing to where they end up and then the whole season will kind of be how we get to point B from point A. And then you get to see like with a little perspective how bittersweet it could be. Hopefully more sweet and not as bitter on my part!”

For Barney, we know that his journey will lead to a break-up with Quinn early this season that is likely going to spawn out of a few things, whether it by Barney not telling her about his past with Robin or some struggles pertaining to a prenuptial agreement. We know that Robin has her own relationship to get out of this season, too, but we have to know more about it before we know just how it is going to end.
