New spoilers have emerged for just how last season's locket issues will be solved in the ninth and final season.
It has been revealed that the season premiere, which is titled "The Locket," will almost certainly examine that poignant hand-holding that occurred between Robin and Ted in last season's penultimate episode.
But don't expect it to be neatly resolved in that one episode. "It's a story that will be explored quite a lot and in-depth," executive producer Pamela Fryman says.
The third episode is titled "The Broken Code", so it looks like the damage may cut deep with Barney.
Could Barney and Ted reach full-blows over Robin? And just how will this love affair Ted has for Robin end?
