What's On Tap For The 150th 'How I Met Your Mother'?
(WARNING! Mild "How I Met Your Mother" spoilers lay ahead. If you want a complete surprise, turn back now!)
Suit up, folks: "How I Met Your Mother" is turning 150 legendary episodes young very soon, and the occasion is marked with a New York City departure and the return of Kal Penn to continue kinda-sorta pitching some woo.
The hit CBS sitcom that's rivaled only by "Community" in making superb continuity and call-backs an art form provided Entertainment Weekly with these stills from the landmark episode's shoot and it looks like Penn's therapist character Kevin will continue edging into romantic sparks flying between himself and Robin (Cobie Smulders).
He's apparently even making himself at home amid the lions' den that is drinking with the gang at McLaren's.
But elsewhere, it's somewhat the end of an era, apparently. EW reports that the episode will mark model-couple Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) finally leaving for a quiet life in the suburbs - once they pair can negotiate moving Lily's dug-in dad out of their current digs.
Hm. Between that sticking point and Barney's (Neil Patrick Harris) perpetual resistance to any member of the gang straying too far off the reservation, I'd have to guess that Marshmallow and his Lily-pad won't be allowed to go quietly into that more sedate life.
Need further convincing? There's a strip club visit included. When have any of them ever had a completely uneventful visit to a strip club . . . with Barney?
