How I Met Your Mother season seven finale - worth the wait?
How I Met Your Mother season seven finale - worth the wait?

Warning: Spoiler alert!

The season seven finale of “How I Met Your Mother" aired Monday night, and it was certainly worth the wait!   

In an hourlong season finale, “How I Met Your Mother" finally revealed that Barney and Robin do indeed end up together. And as for the gang’s latest addition, Marshall and Lily named their baby Marvin Waitforit Eriksen.

The season finale was full of action, with Marshall and Barney highly intoxicated in Atlantic City and struggling to make their way back to New York in time for Lily to give birth. After a couple failed attempts to get home, the pair finally hopped on a senior citizen bus heading to Buffalo, a route that is definitely not going to get them to New York City. Fortunately the senior citizen passengers were rooting for Marshall and Barney, and after they rose one by one to declare “I’m having a heart attack,” the bus changed its route.

While Barney and Marshall are rushing back, Lily is freaking out with Robin and Ted. While viewers haven’t seen Robin and Ted together in a couple of episodes, the former lovers agree to put aside their differences for Lily. In between recounting some hilarious stories from the gang’s past in order to distract from Lily’s pain, Ted sends out a “Kick-Ass Labor Announcement E-mail,” and soon enough the three are heading to the hospital.

Marshall finally arrives, and with him he brings Lily some news. Marshall promised Barney that their son’s middle name would be Waitforit, and Lily agrees. In the middle of pushing out Marvin Waitforit Eriksen, she screams “Arghhh, that is the coolest middle name of all time!”

After the gang meets the latest addition, Robin and Ted continue to rebuild their friendship in the waiting room, and Robin really lets Ted have it. Robin says everything viewers have probably been thinking for the past seven seasons: Ted is always chasing the wrong girl! “You say you want a family, you say you want to meet ‘The One,’ but you’re always chasing the wrong woman,” she brutally tells him. Robin tells Ted that he should reconnect with Victoria, but Ted isn’t the only one realizing what he needs to do.

Barney realizes that he ran off to Atlantic City for two days without calling Quinn, and is worried that she left him. Quinn does one better though, and instead of running off, she redecorates Barney’s man cave with Hello Kitty decorations. While Barney is relieved that Quinn hasn’t left him, Ted, with the help of Marvin, is starting to realize that this isn’t where he wants to be in life. Thinking about what Robin said about Victoria, Ted gives her a call and the pair meet up at MacLaren’s.

In an interesting twist though, this isn’t your average reunion between exes. Victoria shows up in a wedding gown, and even though she is supposed to get married in a couple hours she tells Ted, “Let’s drive off into the sunset together.”

You’d think Ted would have turned down Victoria after the whole Stella wedding fiasco, but Ted, love-struck as always, runs off with her. Ted does change his mind for a second, but after thinking about his previous time with Victoria he continues driving.

Barney and Quinn have a similar idea of riding off into the sunset, and head to the airport to take a trip to Hawaii. Barney gets taken to a holding room, though, when security finds him carrying a disturbing-looking box. Barney refuses to answer the airport security’s questions about the box, but a threat from Quinn finally makes him reveal what’s inside the box. The box turned into a small case that revealed a red flower and an engagement ring that would make any gal happy. Barney proposes to Quinn, and she happily accepts. The newly engaged pair run off to Lily and Marshall’s to tell the good news, and it’s there that fans see Robin’s heartache.

There was still one scene from previews of the finale that had yet to be shown. A flash forward scene previously showed Barney at his wedding with his best man Ted. As the two get ready, Lily walks in, telling Ted that the bride is asking for him. Tonight the scene didn’t stop there, as Ted walks into another room to see Barney’s bride — Robin.

How I Met Your Mother showrunner Carter Bays has revealed that fans of the show are set to be very satisfied with the finale of the current season. Carter admitted that, while Ted (Josh Radnor) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) currently have a lot of tension between them, the season finale will still be pleasing.

Bays explained to Entertainment Weekly, “We went for the reality of those situation. I feel like on this show we’ve gone as far as we can go where it’s just the gang hanging out at the bar week in and week out.”
 
He added, “With these big things happening to them that don’t really change things. Ted and Robin have now reached the point where it’s not as simple as hanging out at the bar and forgetting the fact that Ted’s in love with her, and she’s not in love with him.”
 
Carter continued, “It’s complicated…[But] I feel like [there’s] a satisfying ending - the way it all wraps up as the season comes to a close.” Carter Bays also admitted that the love triangle involving Ted, Robin and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) is set to linger as the series develops.
 
How I Met Your Mother continues on CBS at 8/7c on CBS.

How I Met Your Mother set for gay Barney storyline

It has been reported that How I Met Your Mother is set to have a storyline where Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) reveals that he is actually gay. The storyline is set to come after the wedding of Barney to his mystery bride later this season.

Barney confides in Ted (Josh Radnor), who then gets the rest of the gang together in a show of support for their friend. However, Barney denies that he ever said such a thing to Ted before threatening him that he cannot tell his wife or their friendship is over.
 
A How I Met Your Mother insider explained. “It is a tough situation for Ted. He has already betrayed Barney’s trust by telling the others and he does not want to lose his friendship but at the same time he does not think it is fair to live a lie in a false marriage.”
 
Barney has been becoming more and more camp this season, with singing and dancing routines, in a build up to the big revelation. Barney claims that his womanising ways have just been a cover up, as he struggles to accept his sexuality. How I Met Your Mother airs on CBS on Monday nights.

Jason Segel does not believe in true love
Jason Segel does not believe in true love

How I Met Your Mother actor Jason Segel has revealed that he does not believe in true love. Jason claimed to Parade that he thinks it is more to do with timing and decisions rather than there actually being “The One”.

Segel explained, “I don’t [believe in ‘The One’]. I think relationships are an effort and it’s about timing, an actual decision, and two people deciding they will be the best person for one another. And what happens if you miss the one or they die? Now you are doomed to a life of loneliness? We know that’s not true.”
 
He added, “I think you want your partner to be your best friend. Even attraction will change. But what everyone’s looking for is a partner in crime.” Jason also admitted that he stays single because he does not want to be in a relationship just for the sake of it.
 
Segel continued, “I don’t want to have a girlfriend for the sake of having a girlfriend. I have no desire to pick a random girl. I want the right girl. There are plenty of opportunities, but I would rather have the right one.”
 
Jason Segel can be seen in The Five-Year Engagement, which is released on April 27 in the US and on June 22 in the UK.

How I Met Your Mother actor Jason Segel appears on the big screen with Susan Sarandon in the movie Jeff, Who Lives At Home. Jason has admitted to On The Red Carpet that he often found it difficult on the set of the movie, as Susan was playing his mum and he finds he so foxy.

Segel explained, “Holy moly, the hardest part of this movie was acting like I was not attracted to my mother. She’s so foxy. It was a total honour to get to act next to someone of her caliber.”
 
He then admitted that he was enjoyed filming Jeff, Who Lives At Home, as it was different from his regular comedy movies. Jason added, “It was exciting for [me] to get to stretch a little bit, you know, you always fancy yourself an actor and it’s neat to see if you’re actually right.
 
He continued, “What’s great about [Jeff, Who Lives At Home directors] the Duplass brothers, is that they want you to stretch yourself and they want you to be your best and they gave us that opportunity, so I think we’re all really thankful about that.”
 
Jeff, Who Lives At Home is out now in the US and is set to be released in the UK on May 11.

How I Met Your Mother actor Jason Segel has revealed to Los Angeles Times how he does not have a lot of time for many of the big egos that can be found in Hollywood. Jason claims that it frustrates him that somebody who is famous thinks they know him, just because he is also famous.

Segel explained, “For some reason, you’re all supposed to know each other. But I don’t know you. I’ve never met you. Yes, I know your name. You’re famous. But say your name. That’s how people interact so we feel like equals.”
 
He added, “Everyone’s waiting for the moment where I turn into a jerk, and it’s not gonna happen.” He then went on to admit that, in his early career, he struggled to accept praise for his success, something which has learnt to deal with over the years.
 
Jason continued, “In my 20s, all the characters I played were stunted because I became so scared to even allow myself a pat on the back. Acknowledging my success felt arrogant. But it’s all right to be a confident, self-assured man. I’m growing into that.”

How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that he is a big fan of the social networking site Twitter, as it gives him a way to connect with hi fans. Neil admitted that he loves the whole intimate element of it and the fact that the fans can relate to him on a personal level, rather than being feed information from the media.

Harris explained, “Everyone’s been so nice, whether they know me as Dr. Horrible or Barney Stinson or Doogie Howser. People have been very kind and respectful of the fact that I have a life that’s outside of the business, but also relatively interested in what goes on in that life.”
 
He added, “I think Twitter helps. Twitter is fun because it allows a kind of intimacy with people who want to follow you. You can toss them a funny joke or picture or story that’s unique to you and doesn’t come through the publicists and the studios. It’s just straight out of my brain, into my finger, onto my phone, and off to Twitter! It’s gotten me in trouble a couple of times, but I suppose so have other things!” Neil Patrick Harris recently admitted that he loves watching his children learning.

How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has revealed how he loves to sit and watch his children as they learn new things. Neil and his partner David Burtka are the proud parents of two beautiful twins Gideon and Harper, who they had via a surrogate mother, and Neil finds the children simply fascinating.

Harris explained, “I have an unbelievable assistant who handles all of my scheduling! It’s like a Tetris game. I’ve been doing this for a while and sometimes you have spells of busyness and other times you’re clamouring for work. It’s nice to not be put out by being so busy, but to try to embrace it and make smart choices. I guess I’m in a nice position that way. I get to choose things that interest me as opposed to trying to get any job that will have me, which for a vast majority of actors is the case.”
 
He added, “I love watching them learn to understand language. And watching them interact with each other is fantastic. We’re lucky that we have two because they always have a playmate and they get to learn complicated concepts like sharing and co-operation. They get to learn those things a little earlier because they’re with each other all the time. Watching their minds tick is fun.” It was recently rumoured that Neil Patrick Harris would be replacing Ryan Seacrest on American Idol but he has since dismissed those rumours.

Two and a Half Men actor Neil Patrick Harris has spoken out about his love for his gay partner David Burtka, claiming that they are very much in love with each other. Neil admitted that, while the love is always there, he is not going to pretend that they do not have their rough patches, as he sometimes feels that he questions their relationship.

Harris explained, “There’s something kinetic about him and his being. He’s classically sexy, yet he’s very much a boy in his energy. It’s a great dynamic. I don’t want to paint our relationship like we met and it’s been happy family fantastic-ness ever since. What defines a relationship is the work that’s involved to maintain it, and it’s constantly changing.”
 
He added, “Sometimes I’m deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it’s going to work out and is meant to be.” Neil Patrick Harris met David Burtka, who is a chef and E! News correspondent, via a mutual friend at an American Idol party. You can see Neil Patrick Harris in Two and a Half Men, every Monday night on CBS.
How I Met Your Mother to continue once the mother has been revealed
How I Met Your Mother to continue once the mother has been revealed

The executive producers of How I Met Your Mother, Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, have revealed how they intend to keep the show going, even after the mother has finally been revealed. Craig joked about doing a new series called How I Met Your Father, while Carter added that they are likely to do more flashbacks of funny stories from the past.

Thomas joked, “We’ve had conversations about rewinding back to 2005 and doing a series called How I Met Your Father”. He then continued by adding, “From the perspective of what was happening with the Mother all those years. Occasionally, she’ll stumble through McLaren’s and no-one will see her.” Carter Bays then explained how the series is likely to continue once the mother has been revealed.
 
He said, “One way to go is to finish the [mother] story at the end of season eight, and then season nine is, ‘Oh, by the way, kids, I left some stuff out…’ And then it’s just 24 little stories that took place over the course of the series here and there. Like, ‘Here’s something funny that happened in 2006’.” Carter Bays also admitted that he does not intend to finish with How I Met Your Mother until the writers run out of good ideas.
