It looks like the seventh season of “How I Met Your Mother” kicks off with a wedding, but not the one you’re probably thinking of.
Ted’s (Josh Radnor) childhood best friend and last season’s wedding red herring, Punchy (Chris Romanski), finally ties the knot in the Sept. 19 premiere, “The Best Man.” And while we’re not sure why the entire gang makes it to the apparently Halloween-themed nuptials, it matters little. Just check out how close Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) are looking on the dance floor.
As you remember, Season 6 ended with a flash forward to Barney’s wedding and a great deal of uncertainty as to the identity of the bride. Robin apparently toys with coming clean about her renewed affections for her ex in the season premiere, but given Season 7’s apparent status as Robin-heavy, we’re thinking she’ll probably stew over those feelings for a little longer.
As for the rest of the gang, they seem to be sticking together — and looking rather distressed — at the wedding where they don’t know anyone.
Ted makes an attempt at a classic Mosby toast, much to the chagrin of the groom.
And while we may not/clearly won’t start Season 7 of with a rekindled Robin and Barney, at least there’ll be sexy chair dancing. Seriously, look at these two…
