‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 spoilers: A title change for Barney and Robin

Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders“How I Met Your Mother” gave us a rare two-part episode at the end of last season, and it is interesting in that both parts of “The Magician’s Code” are really going to be remembered mostly for one thing: Barney proposing to Quinn. Now, we have another two-parter officially coming up this season, and the question that we have to ask is pretty simple: are Barney and Robin getting together going to be at the center of it?

Well, know this. The upcoming eleventh and twelfth episodes of the show’s eighth season have undergone a title change, and are now going to be known as “The Final Page,” part 1 and part 2. Really, there are only two possible interpretations that we can think of when it comes to why executive producers Craig Thomas and Carter Bays would use these:

1. This is some sort of indication that these two aforementioned characters may have finally made it to the end of their romantic journey together. All of the evidence is building to the two finally getting together again, and they are now in a place where it could actually happen.

2. It’s also possible that this could be Ted arriving potentially at the final page of his journey before meeting the mother, which could mean the arrival of his new girlfriend played by Abby Elliot. Like with Barney and Quinn last year, this is a relationship that we found out about long before filming started, but we have been waiting ever since to see when the journey will begin.

We are hoping that the title is in no way a possible indication that this could indeed by the comedy’s final season; while most of the cast has expressed an interest in doing one more year, the decision is still in limbo thanks to financing and other assorted issues.
