How I Met Your Mother: Season 8 Episode 1


Season 8 finally took off and it looks like the much-awaited identity of Ted’s bride will finally be revealed. The season premiere ended with the lady approaching the place she finally encounters Ted (it certainly looks like the place J). However, a huge yellow umbrella hides her from plain view. Let’s see when she makes an appearance again.
First things first though. The season finale from the seventh season had confirmed that Barney and Robin do end up having a wedding. We get just a glimpse of the pre-wedding jitters and then we are taken into the past again. Back to where Barney and Quinn have just gotten engaged and Lily and Marshall are proud parents.
Baby Marvin has arrived and the new parents are quite a sight. Sleep-deprived, they let slip in front of Quinn the one thing Barney had been keeping from her. Quinn is a little perturbed when she finds out that Barney and Robin had dated but relaxes when Robin tells the gang about this new boyfriend she has.

The touching moment comes when Robin opens the storage box that Barney has kept hidden somewhere. In it are all the mementos from the time the two had dated and it is very clear that Robin still has feelings for Barney and misses their time together.
Meanwhile, Ted learns an important lesson. Remember, he and Victoria drove off into the sunset in the season finale. Well, Ted convinces Victoria to at least leave a farewell note to the groom. Things twist a little and there are some funny moments. However, Ted gets some sound advice from the groom, Klaus (who was also running off from the wedding actually!). And Klaus’s words help Ted realize that Victoria might not be the girl he has been waiting for.
