Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) have “shocking news” for everyone, and judging by the name of the episode, the expressions of glee in these photos and the fact that baby-making has dominated their storyline for the entire season, we’re going to go out on a very short limb and say they’re finally with child. Preemptive mazel tov!
Also on deck for the episode, Robin (Cobie Smulders) gets a new job — and maybe, just maybe, it will stick this time. We obviously have her best professional interests at heart, but if this new job means leaving Becky behind, we take issue with this turn. We haven’t had nearly enough time with the cheery co-anchor.
All these big changes will probably make Ted (Josh Radnor) emo about his lack of wife and children, but at least he has Punchie’s wedding to look forward to. He’s given some of his best man duties, and though being in a wedding party is almost always a complete pain, at least these might be the nuptials he meets his future wife at.
