Someone from Ted’s past is making a return appearance on “How I Met Your Mother” soon.
The circumstances of The Captain’s return aren’t being revealed, although it seems unlikely that Zoey (Jennifer Morrison), The Captain’s wife-turned-Ted’s (Josh Radnor) girlfriend, will return as well. Morrison is busy working on “Once Upon a Time,” and most “HIMYM” fans would be happy not to see Zoey again.
February is shaping up to be something of a guest-star bonanza for “How I Met Your Mother.” Monday’s (Feb. 4) episode features another look at Robin Sparkles, Robin’s (Cobie Smulders) pop-star alter ego, and a host of fellow Canadian guest stars, plus James Van Der Beek as Robin’s former boyfriend Simon.
MacLachlan plays the mayor on “Portlandia” and co-starred in CBS’ short-lived “Made in Jersey” earlier this season.
