How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Spoilers, Guess Who: "Robin just doesn't love him" - Cobie Smulders
How I Met Your Mother Season 9 spoilers are keeping the fans excited for the sitcom's ninth and final season. HIMYM co-creator Carter Bays and Robin Scherbatsky actress Cobie Smulders dish their thoughts on the characters, allowing the viewers an insider POV. For the avid supporters of Ted and Robin, Smulders says, "Robin just doesn't love him."
"Ted is such a great dude. He is so kind and he is so sweet, and that's a guy who you're like, 'That is a solid guy. Father of my children,'" Smulders said. "But Robin just doesn't love him, and that's what it comes down to." How I Met Your Mother Season 9 will tell the story of how the wedding happens despite a near-kiss (?) moment between Ted and Robin in HIMYM Season 8.
Ted, Robin, and the Universe (One of HIMYM's Best Quotes Ever)
How I Met Your Mother Season 9 is all about Robin's and Barney's wedding weekend. It seems nothing is ever going to stop that ceremony. But will something almost keep it from happening? The "Something Old" scene in which Ted and Robin get drenched in the rain does seem ominous. (Could Marshall still win his bet with Lily?)
"In terms of roadblocks (wedding threats), Ted is a big one. And we'll see how that plays out," Smulders teased.
Here's a look back into Ted's memorable line to Robin: "Maybe we don't need the Universe to tell us what we want. Maybe we all already know that, deep down."
Cobie Smulders also revealed to TV Guide she pitched Annette Bening to play her stopmom in How I Met Your Mother.
How I Met Your Mother Season 9: What's the mother' name?
TV Guide asked HIMYM co-creator Carter Bays about the titular mother's name. Fans already saw Cristin Milioti playing the mother role in How I Met Your Mother Season 8 finale. But up to this point, nothing much has been revealed about the future Mrs Mosby. Bays wouldn't spill the mom's name yet, but he has some scoop on how Ted's friends will meet the character ahead of him.
"The order they meet doesn't matter so much, but the context [in which they meet] is the right context for each character," TV Guide quoted Bays. (Check out the slideshow to see what HIMYM fans are posting to Tumblr about Cristin Milioti.)
How I Met Your Mother Season 9 premieres in the U.S. on Sept. 23. The first episode is called "The Locket." It may have a lot to do with Robin's "something old" locket, which Ted is about to return to Robin.
Bays also dishes that Ted's letting go of Robin (for real) starts in How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 3: "The Broken Code."
