I’m not sure if this is accurate but I’ve documented all of the Robin in yellow episodes I’ve found so far: Season 4, episode 24 “The Leap”, where Barney and Robin finally kiss and get together for reals. Robin broke into Barney's apartment and found the Playbook with the intention of revealing Barney as a womanizer. In the book the main characters love each other but sadly end up with other people. You don’t need it anymore. No Barney’s half sister is at the wedding as a guest. (Someone already wrote a thesis on the Olive Theory), http://m.eonline.com/news/470092/the-how-i-met-your-mother-theory-we-hope-we-re-wrong-about, Aaargh I don’t like this idea! If they continued throughout the seasons, that would be different. get more visitors. All Barney's sexual partners :) added by Larrin. Meanwhile, at MacLaren's, Barney finds Claudia waiting for Lily and immediately tries to seduce her, offering fake sympathy and alcohol. And also a clever plot twist I had never considered….nicely done! He hasn’t gotten over her in 9 years!!! It’s not a wedding day that will go completely smoothly, but it will end with Barney being married. But it would be extremely weird to go thru all of this, and NEVER see the happy family together. He simply wasn’t Robin’s lobster. In terms of what they are wearing…I have fixed feelings. Then he went on to date her for a year, further preventing Ted from meeting anyone. I love your observation that cream and lilac are pastel versions of yellow and purple! But they keep Robin’s left hand hidden in almost the entire flash-forward sequence. Or at least a bridesmaid, she was indeed instrumental to their connection. SOOO here’s how I think it will go down: Barney will propose to Quinn, and they will plan a purple-tastic wedding because that is apparently her favorite color (or at least the color that she wears all the time). ~My favorite couple is finally married! Anyway, I know this is really long-winded, but there’s all that. There are going to be the critics that inevitably complain and say the "How I Met Your Mother" finale was too perfect. I’m pretty sad I already used “purple haze” in a blog post title because it should be used to describe the entire season. oh, and something else i thought of regarding the wedding -maybe Lily’s dress is pink because she’s not the maid of honor. I’ve actually looked for both Marshall and Lily with yellow, and so far, nothing. I hope you’re right about the dress, but I was thinking that Robin and Barney might throw Patrice a bone and let her be the maid of honor? Robin! i just don’t think Robin would be the kind of bride to pick out uniform bridesmaid dresses (though so far her and Barney’s wedding plans seem too traditional for such a couple, at least in my view).

Meanwhile, Ted and Marshall get into a dispute over wedding … And why do the kids never get a text from Mom saying dinner is ready, or anything else to save them? His journey to his future wife all ties in with Robin. It may not the wedding you were hoping to see, but Barney Stinson and soulmate Robin Scherbatsky sure do look cozy at doofy Punchy's nuptials in How I Met Your Mother… It didn’t become really obvious to me until this season. For now, I don’t know. Still, somehow i imagine Ted cutting his hand in something relating to Barney. I read most of the comments about the “the mother and Barney being dead” thing, and while I respect your opinion and theory, I hope to God it’s not true!!! That’s why Lily is in a pink dress, and not a purple bridesmaid dress. I’m so curious! make a baby. Thus, Ted takes it back to where it all began. Somebody mentioned lilacs in the boutonnières. the wedding by getting a band for them cause her old roommate ( the mother) plays in one! Um…did anyone watch the end of Roseanne? Barney lured Robin to her favorite spot in the city where she found the last page of his Playbook. Ugh, I wish I knew. or purple when Barney is the yellow (ducky tie?) (Followed, of course, by a quick, “Just kidding!”). If Barney and the Mother are the yellows, and Ted and Robin the purples, then it would stand, following this theory, that the yellows are temporary. no offense, but you sound really young. After they broke up, Ted got a tramp stamp, which let him to Dr. Stella Zinman! I don’t really think there is much evidence to the mother actually being dead. Let me know what you think/if you want me to follow up with this theory at all. At which point purple is still end game. It worked: in the episode titled "The Over-Correction," Robin broke into Barney's apartment and found the Playbook with the intention of revealing Barney as a womanizer. Yeah there’s basically nothing with Marshall and Lily both wearing yellow. I have scoured the web looking for points for and against this theory, and it holds a lot of water. If anyone is to blame for why Robin became unlikable as the seasons went on, it's the writers. Had they taken that route, we could have seen them all together. Second of all, I know everyone has a huge problem with the story beginning when he met Robin, and his further obsessing about her for eight years. Explain everything to Patrice and hope she agrees to help. Also, that was a pilot. So I think that is at least part of the reason why he is there by himself. These guys are BFFs, the whole group, and it won’t be the same without her there. It is a key element in the show, and the relationship between Ted and the mother, and that is how the plot actually goes. Will Barney This information is amazing!

Directed by Pamela Fryman. Hopefully we will see some Ross and Rachel style wedding mishap, where Barney says Robin’s name instead of Quinn’s. Reading too much into this? thanks for sharing them :). Calla lilies are the flower associated with a sixth wedding anniversary and, by my reckoning, Marshall and Lilly have been married six years at the time of the “Farhampton” wedding. And with episodes such as Time Travelers (I bawl every time), Symphony of Illusion, and Bad News, no one can deny that the creators are not always happy-go-lucky with this show. Ted should have buried those Robin feelings the second he heard of the engagement, and never brought them up or demonstrated them ever again. I hope so, she deserves to get something nice out of all of this. It just occurs to me that once I put this tie on, I can never take it off. Wasn’t it though? In season 9, however, Robin and Barney’s wedding has allowed the series to tell a more structured tale about the actual meeting between Ted and the Mother - or as other some may call it, the plot of the show. Step 10: Prove your loyalty to Patrice by burning The Playbook, and actually burn it. Step 8: Wait until Robin inevitably breaks into your place to find The Playbook and show it to Patrice, which you’ll monitor via the hidden cameras you have in your apartment.

Whom he was destined to be with, get engaged to and be left at the alter for her ex Tony! In the latest episode (8.13) Ted says the colors will be cream and lilac – which are the pastel versions of yellow and purple! Yes, they’re teenagers, but that’s no reason to be assholes about hearing the story of their dead/dying mother’s love story with their dad. Here’s what I posted on Reddit about it – I’m going to do another article but I’m not quite there yet: “To be clear – I don’t think there NEEDS to be a theory. how old are you? I’m wondering if Ted’s hand relates to him knowing that Robin can’t have kids, and Barney not discovering that until later? Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

You need initial traffic boost only. Did I make a mistake? “Seriously kids, don’t EVER invite an ex to your wedding.” Here’s the tricky part to this rule – I don’t know that fans will be satisfied by a Ted or Barney wedding without Robin in attendance.

There is a TON of evidence supporting this (The drawings of The Kids and Aunt Robin but none of the mother, Saget-Ted never using tenses implying that she is still alive, I could go on and one). Let’s not forget that she was the reason he didn’t meet the date the dating site picked out for him in season 1! (A way to incorporate the mother without having cast her yet) I understand that he wants the kids to understand the journey he took up to that point, but WHY? The steps played out over the first half of season 8. Call me romantic, but I want to believe that Barney will be 100% sure when he marries Robin. She is the girl ted marries.

Would I have been happier with the other tie? The factors are all there to make this theory viable.

Sidenote – how is it possible that nobody has created a gif of that scene yet?! Why are we still hearing about Ted obsessing over Robin?

Barney has two other serious girlfriends throughout the series: Nora (Nazanin Boniadi), on whom he cheats with Robin; and Quinn (Becki Newton), a stripper to whom he proposes, but with whom he breaks up upon realizing that they don't trust each other. I am perfectly happy with Ted telling them for the reasons mentioned in “The Brunch” – his parents had a brief story, so Ted wants to tell his kids everything. also, maybe what happened to Ted’s hand has something to do with the band? a. The secret plan consisted of 16 steps, some more involved than others. He staged a fake fight with Patrice regarding the Playbook and pretended that he would get rid of it to stay with Patrice. ah, I’m dying to see Patrice in a crazy bridesmade dress :) Also, with all the tension a bride has to take on her wedding day, it would be the only day Robin could legitimately scream at everyone like she does at Patrice :P or maybe finally she’ll be openly nice to her? oops, my reply was referring to your next commebt, not this one! The Mother is either early pregnant as of this moment, or about to get knocked up. Step 9: After Patrice “finds” The Playbook, have your first “big fight.”.
