How I Met Your Mother Season 8 : All You Need To Know!

2 years ago, by

May 14, 2012

Since it’s certain that How I Met Your Mother is set to return for a could-be final season (as revealed in a earlier post) after having one of it’s most successful seasons by scoring it’s  highest rating records.. Here’s a rundown of what’s to come in the upcoming likely to be final season which will begin to air in the final half of the year.

The Mother will be revealed!! The dying question all fans have been waiting for will may finally come full circle..How I Met Your Mother Season 8 Speculation

Creator Bays has revealed that the Mother’s identity is in the works as he mentioned some new casting ideas in a recent interview. He said it could be ”A crazy big name, or someone you’ve never heard of? It’s a running debate. And it’s getting more important that we answer that debate the further into the show we get. We’re getting there.”

Since the season 7 finale will reveal Barney’s Bride we will also learn how Ted meets the love of his life as the wedding reception is where they will finally cross paths. Season 8 will deal with these repercussions and how it will have impact on Ted.

A few more spoilers for Season 8 is that Robin may find a new love interest, whether or not this may be the return to Barney is unclear. Who do you think Robin will end up with?  Marshal and Lily will also adjust to their new lives of being parents.

And as for Barney, it’s unclear how his life will be changed after the big wedding in the season seven finale.

What do you guys think? Excited for Season 8? Any theories on how the mother will be revealed, and are you ready for the big reveal?

    I think the mom is the girl ted ran into at a party and he said sorry.. idk they paid too much mind to that part when tehy bumped… also ted said the mom was at the party and this is when ted talked about the yellow umbrella

  • Dulija

    Yup, Ted has said before things like “How Marshall ruined Punchy’s wedding” how he (Ted) had himself ruined various weddings with his speeches. Doesn’t mean the weddings didn’t go through and that the couples didn’t get married in the end. In lots of those cases they did, like at Marshall and Lily’s own wedding.

     NO SHIT SHERLOCK

  • Vic121198

    its a little weird that Barney in real life is GAY and that in the episode he’s a straight ladies man

  • Vic121198

     he also said that the mother was in his class

  • rotkiv98

     i also saw that one

  • rotkiv98

    I think that Barney will discover that he’s got a half-sister and that Ted will fall in love with her.

  • VIC121198

    mabe theill make a MOVIE!

  • himym_98

    who is barneys half sister? i actually dont remember anything about her!?

  • http://www.facebook.com/elin.eriksson.524 Elin Eriksson

    yeah, I thought the same when I read all this comments. I didn’t know he had a sister!

  • Jacob

    I think Robin will be the mother… nothing in the last episode (and season) says its Barney and Robin getting married. I think its a double wedding (Ted & Robin and Barney & Quinn) and they are each other’s best man (why Lily calls Ted “best man, you’re being summoned” at that wedding in the last episode of Season 6). It only makes sense for Robin to be the mom… she’s been there since Episode 1, Season 1 and they cant just create a girl in the last season to make her the mom, it doesnt make sense, poor writing. I think to solve the whole calling Robin “Aunt Robin” would be that Robin isnt her real name, he disguised her with the name Robin, someone else the kids know called Robin. I like this idea and think its the perfect ending… Do you?

  • boop

    screw who the mother is, i wanna know where that pineapple came from!!

  • Al

  • Al

    well if ever i can suggest a story here..i think that “the wedding” there was really a “double wedding” w/c barney marries quinn and robin married other some guy that she was about to met in the next season.. haha

  • skfjeorjf ieifjeif

    Yes he works in a bank but they never say what it that he actually does! Are you not a big fan of this show? Clearly not -_________-

  • lkgjoeri idfjie

    That is so true but hes always at GNB O.o

  • Anonymous

    I wish that was true, I loved Don with Robin!! Barney and Robin don’t belong together and I think the writer’s are BSíng about saying they always intended for them to end up together, they just caved to the fans. Boooooo!!!

  • alina

    What? they are perfect together!!

  • Giggidy

    What if there is two weddings where Robin is not actually marrying barney??? Twist….

  • Lela

    I liked the last scene in the 7th season! I was kinda cheering for Barney and Robin!

  • http://twitter.com/IrvingMtzAcosta Irving Martinez

    Screw that, I still want to know where the pineapple from Season 1 came from XD

  • aj123

    i don’t care much about the mother now. it took too long to! what i really want to know is whats going on between robin and barney and also i want to know how marshall and lilly will raise the baby

  • Paul

    I WANNA KNOW HOW TED GOT THE PINEAPPLE :))

  • http://www.facebook.com/jared.welch2 Jared Welch

    The “mother” will be Barney’s half-sister, mention as an off-side by his dad (John Lithgow) when Barney finally met him, that she was off at college. She would be at Barney’s wedding, and that’s where Ted will meet a college girl that ended up in his class accidentally when he started teaching in the wrong room. Full circle.

  • blabla

    Ted’s wife i think its the girl he bumped into during saint patrick days celebration. NO TOMORROW !

  • http://twitter.com/_Xenaria Mainia Hietala

    Me too, haha!

  • geek

    he’s head of the search committee

  • Jess10393

    Well robyn’s new love interest is obviously the guy she had a crush on when ted bought the red cowboy boots. If barney owned the company artillery arthur wouldn’t be allowed to yell at him. Not sure if it’s a random, but ted physically bumps into a woman during the st patty’s day parade and they say sorry and you don’t see her again. She’s brunette and looks about the same age as the roommate. In true himym style I wonder if she’s the one?

    Have you guys been watching the same show as me? Firstly, by now, you should have seen that the creators stick to their flashbacks and flash forwards… everything im gonna explain excludes the fact that there are red herrings or that there is a technical aspect to ‘how i met your mother’ being the fact that ted is just going to explain about how he met the kids mother. the mother cant be anyone ted was dating before season 7 because close tothe end of season 7 he says that the first time he said tht he loved the mother was outside a movie theatre when it was raining and they had sold out on tickets to their favourite movie. before this ted has said that he loved all the girls that he dated, so that immediately rules out all of them. also he says that the mother was in the first lecture he attended on his first day as a lecturer but he usually has a keen eye for spotting people in crowded places and he would have noticed if anyone he knew was there… and at the time of dating each person he always visited where they lived so he would have known the mothers house and by that logic he would also know who the other is… but the creators obviously have more planned because they say that ted met the mother at barneys wedding and they show flashforwards meaning that even though the show is called how i met your mother, they will probably continue the story up till the marriage and after the last episode of season 7 we can assume that maybe they will show the story of both kids births…

  • Bro you’ve gone too low.

    Are you crazy! Her sister is a teenager. It would be illegal.

  • Tawnythorn

    its already been confirmed by the producers anyways that the barney and robin marriage will happen. Personally, Ive been rooting for them to get together from season 1

  • http://www.facebook.com/MrZ00P Zoop Maister

    pfffff… Please… Barney works in a.. waaaait for it…. BANK xD

  • souravh

    Ooh!!!screw all of that…..
    I just want it to keep continuing……
    Carter bays,,whatever happens don’t stop this show.
    Please………….

  • amy

    this is a spoiler dont read if u dont want to…………………………………………………………………….

    someone told me that the mother is barneys step sister and this article says tey cross paths at the wedding….but im not sure!!!

  • mette simonsen

    I think the mother is a member of the band playing at the wedding. The roommate was playing guitar..

  • misken

    Correction: half-sister. Her name is Carly. Barney is the only one of the main characters who knows of her existence, and even then, he has only seen her through a single photograph.

    I’m pretty sure Carly doesn’t know of any of the main characters’ existence as of now.

  • Revealer

    He is head of the search commite (spelling) Its in the “sven” episode

  • Jess10393

    Well obviously the guy Robyn gets with is the crush guy from the time when Ted bought his red cowboy boots! This might be wrong, but Ted bumps into someone at the St Patty’s day party and they say sorry and she’s not in the rest of the ep. But she’s around the same age, attractive, and brunette. Oh the possibilities! Also, he can’t tell Victoria he loves her, as per the ep when he tells Robyn he does and says he doesn’t say it again til he meets their mother

  • oliver

    I agree, and also ithere is an episode where narrator Ted say that the story with robins crush isn´t over

  • ogliver

    Screw the mother, I wanna know Barneys total

  • abe07

    The kids are adopted..
    Children should be told about their adoption in a way that they can understand,
    it needs 8 years for Ted to tell his kids that they are adopted.
    And Robin is the mother ;)

  • Murrayd

    it will be to do with the yellow umbrella. We know from one of the flash forward clips that it is going to be raining at barney and robins wedding. Also, the yellow umbrella is currently in the hands of the mother at present from episode 100 when Ted goes out with the mothers flat mate. I reckon it will be raining and Ted will see the yellow umbrella and remember where he left it. And then hopefully go up and talk to the mother

  • Missy

    I personally feel that Barney should end up with Robin. I mean, if he was ready to take her back even after how much they went through when they dated, i think that they would definitely hit it off with each other. I feel that they are like Rachel and Ross from FRIENDS, in a weird way. I dont care about the mother. I only wanna know whom Barney ends up with and hopefully it should be Robin. It would be nice if they show the bets that Lily and Marshall have between themselves in the upcoming episodes.

  • Scruff

    No its not a perfect ending… And its not poor writing to wait till now to show who the mom is… i wouldnt be surprised if the wait till season 9 to officially show the mom and focus on season 8 for showing how robin and barney got together… think about it, half the reason why people still watch the show is becuase they wanna see who the mom is… so it would be perfect to reveal the main character of the show years later… the other thing is, robin cant have children… ted starts the show by telling the kids about how he met their mother… it makes alot of sense for robin and barney to get together because theey both dont want kids and they mesh well together… also i mentioned in another post that ted said that the first time he mentioned that he loved their mom was outside a theatre when they were waiting to see their favourite movie… we all know when ted said i love you to the robin… also theres the whole thing about the mother being roommates with that uni student who turned lesbian and the yellow umbrella and the yellow car and the fact that she was in the economics lecture at the uni… too many things point out it cant be robin… she doesnt have the likes that ted does and the mother does….

  • Scruff

    Barneys half sister is only briefly mentioned but its enough to let us possibly think she could be the mother… in the episode where barney goes to his dads house for supper (and takes the basketball hoop) when barney goes into the house they mention something about his dads daughter being away at university… so it could be that barneys sister is the mother becuase she is the roommate of that girl ted was dating who turned lesbian… and would be the reason why robin is their actual aunt, becuase she is barneys wife

  • Scruff

    Well, wayne brady is straight, is it weird that he is gay in the show? also if you dont know… Neil patrick harris is engaged to the guy who acts as scooter on himym…. and they have 2 kids… pretty kwl if you ask me… diversity is nice…

    Thats for the building not his actual job

    agree here too.. :)
    …and i would steal a whole orchestra…
    isn’t it so sweet?

  • yoshi

    don’t you guys think its interesting how narrator ted’s voice is much deeper than ted’s actual voice?

  • Bill_ASC

    maybe season 8 can explain both..

  • Bill_ASC

    I prefer Barney-Nora, Robin – unknown (Crush ?)
    because Barney being honest to Nora, Nora have deep feeling for Barney and Both of them loved each other unconditionally. Barney want a child (sorry Robin..)
    if there are 1 episode Marshall, Ted and Barney holding each of their child, it would be awesome.. wait awesome is not enough, It will be Legen… wait for it… Dary ! Legendary !

  • the truth

    that is just for that one period of time to find the architect to design the building. its not his actual full time job.

  • wrong

    this is just a temporary assignment to find the architect to design the new building. its not his actual job.

    i think Barney and Robin’s marriage will not go well, because in 06 x 21 ( legendaddy i guess) Robin saw her crash and at the end of the episode he said ” gues what, she’s engaged.So that’s the end of that”. And Ted says “It wasn’t the end of that”.

  • d’r heaven or…

    first barneys job second barney and robin obviously and third teds wife should be one of the follow :
    Zooey Deschanel,
    April Michelle Bowlby,
    Olivia Wilde,
    Megan Marie Park.
    you have been challenged.

  • Tamih

    I’v always thought Barney owns Goliah National Bank… Like, we all know he’s a rich guy, but it was never said where that money comes from… And he never really works, and get jobs for his friends whenever he wants… That guy is the boss!

  • http://www.facebook.com/tcfelix Tamires Catarina Félix

    I just LOVE Barney and Robin together! I mean, we know Barney will end up marring someone, and who else is as awesome as himself? Robin is perfect for him! But even with the last scene on 7th season I’m still not convinced they’ll be together. They can just be having a double wedding, remember both Robin and Barney told Ted they would have him as their best man when they get married? Yes, the producers said Robin is the ‘bride’for who we’ve been waiting to know, but they’ve never said Robin is Barney’s bride or that they’ll get married…

    i only know one thing: if Robin and Ted end up together, someone will die!

  • chosen1

    I think the mother is barney’s sister…

  • L

    If you watched the Pilot episode again, you would find out that the name Robin appeared only in the ending – “because that’s how I met your aunt Robin”. The name was never mentioned before.

  • Vaidas

    Hej everyone!
    Me and my colleague have figured it all out about Ted’s wife. Here it is:
    We already know that Ted’s future wife is currently a college student (he was dating her room mate, her name was Cindy, I think….). Barney’s father mentioned once he has a grown daughter who is in college at the moment and they don’t see her very often…
    Our brilliant theory is: It’s Barney’s sister who Ted is going to meet at Barney’s and Robin’s wedding!!!! ;)

    Greetings from Lithuania & Denmark!

  • didi6

    ted’s wife is gonna be barney’s half-sister, u’ll see.. in season six, when barney went to have dinner with his dad and his family, his sister was supposed to join, but she never did and was never shown.. but she’ll definitely be at his wedding, so that’s how ted will meet her. plus all they want to keep it in the family of friends, so it’ll make sense.

    In the first season, Ted tells to his children how he met their aunt Robin, so the mother must be a sister of Barney or Robin, cuz if Robin is the aunt, the mother is her sister!! :)
