How I Met Your Mother Season 5 Finale Spoilers: Season 6 Spoilers Lily, Marshall & Baby!

HIMYM – Marshall and Lily to have a baby in season six

For those of you who simply cannot wait for this season of How I Met Your Mother to end in order to find out what happens NEXT season, here’s some insight.
According to Michael Ausiello, Marshall and Lily will indeed have a baby – no more of this beating around the bush, “maybe baby” stuff. They will have a baby, and it will be a boy, as was hinted earlier this season when Future Ted’s narration gave the audience this information. Says Carter Bays, “Every now and then we like to, in a roundabout way, paint a clear picture of who they are at the time that the show’s being narrated from,” he explains. “And yes, we felt like it was time to tell the audience that Marshall and Lily also go on to have kids.”
Bays goes on to say, “a stork isn’t going to drop a baby in their laps in the season premiere…. [Parenthood] is going to be a big chapter in their lives. There are a lot of steps ahead.”
For those of you who are Robin Sparkles fans (and who isn’t?), good news. Footage will surface of the 80’s star’s failed variety show with Alan Thicke. Carter Bays says,
“It’s inevitable that we’re going to see what that show was all about,” confirms exec producer Carter Bays. “That’s something to look forward to next season.” Indeed!

HIMYM – Cobie Smulders interview

[Spoilerphobes beware: Smulders revealed a few mild plot twists ahead in the series’ fifth season.]

So when are we going to see Robin Sparkles again?
I don’t know! Hopefully soon. She took a little bit of a respite, didn’t she?

The writers are really spacing out her appearances.
They dropped the idea of Robin having a variety show too.

I wanted to ask you about that. Earlier this season (in the episode “The Rough Patch”) Alan Thicke revealed that he and Robin co-starred in a Canadian variety show together and then Barney ran off to try to find the footage but —
[The writers] never made anything of it, so I am hoping that when we come back for season six that we will get some crazy variety show with Alan Thicke. That would be amazing. Any excuse to bring Alan Thicke back on the show.

Your show gets so many great guest stars — from Britney Spears to Peter Bogdanovich. Did you hit it off with one in particular?
I love — just as a person — Sarah Chalke. She’s now one of my good friends, so I think I am probably biased towards that, but we also had her for quite some time. She was with
us for what, seven episodes or something like that? So it was nice to have someone actually there for a good chunk of time and allow her character to develop and all that stuff.

Speaking of characters sticking around on the show, what happened to Robin’s new beau Don? Even though he and Robin have been dating, we haven’t seen him since their first date.
Well, there is a pretty big season finale coming up where some stuff goes down with Don.

Bad stuff?
Some bad stuff goes down with Don, so I have a feeling he may not be with us for much longer.

Message received. You guys also shot an episode with Chris Kattan and Jason Lewis.

I think that is the episode before the season finale. But I was bummed! I am a fan of Chris Kattan actually and we weren’t on set that day. They actually shot a movie that will be shown within the show, which actually didn’t involve any characters from the show so none of us worked that day. Our crew basically shot a mini-movie while we were at home. I hear it’s pretty funny and amazing and I am excited to see what Chris Kattan comes up with in terms of what his thoughts on Ted Mosby are. He’s playing sort of a cartoon version of Ted.

That’s such a genius casting choice. Chris Kattan really has the Ted Mosby spiky hair.
We have some really good writers who have some pretty awesome ideas.

Can you talk about how the movie within the show fits into the season?
Was it last season that Sarah Chalke was on the show?

Right, season four.
Yeah, so we ended the season with Sarah’s character Stella moving to Los Angeles with Tony (Jason Jones). Basically, he went to L.A. to become a movie writer and wrote this movie that we end up watching and sort of discover is about his relationship with Stella and the whole leaving-him-at-the-altar sort of thing. But it’s not entirely fact-based. It’s kind of made-up — his version of what happened.

Moving on to Robin’s love life, what did you first think when the writers told you that they were conceiving a Robin-Barney romance? As a viewer, it seemed like it would be a complete disaster but it turned out that Robin and Barney had really sweet chemistry.
I was surprised when they decided to do it and then like you, I got on board with it. I love working with Neil. He is so much fun and we just have a really good time on set together. So it was fun to play more intimate scenes together but I think that relationship definitely had an expiration date so it was just a matter of time before they broke up. But it was sort of bittersweet. I feel like it is something that they could maybe touch upon again, but you never know. I think they like to leave things kind of open-ended on our show in case they want to hop back, because the timeline is just so all over the place .

And Ted is a totally unreliable narrator —
Yes, we can definitely rely on that, “Oops! Ted told the story wrong, so let’s tell it again the right way.”

It’s funny how that makes for entertaining television, but if someone kept pulling that in real life, they would be one of the most annoying storytellers ever.
Totally.

I know that Ted’s character is based on your executive producer Carter Bays, and Marshall and Lily are based on your other executive producer Craig Thomas and his wife. Are Robin and Barney based on anyone in real life?

No, I think that they just wanted a character that was female and confidant and sort of a guys’ girl and they came up with Robin. Over the years, the idea of Robin sort of morphed — I got hired and they decided to make her Canadian after I came on the show. I think that over the course of a show, the characters shift in different ways but I think that they probably just probably wanted to have a Robin-like energy in the cast, maybe to help counteract Barney’s machismo. I would love to meet Robin in real life if she existed.

Me too. There were a few scenes this season that seemed un-Robin-like to me though. She was constantly having to listen to Barney brag about all of his conquests post break-up without commenting or seeming hurt. I was glad that the writers finally addressed her feelings about the break-up.
I was glad they did that too because every episode we shot, I was sitting there like, “I am not going to be in this scene, right? Can I please be written out of this scene because this is awkward?” I was really happy when they finally shot that episode. I don’t know if they had been planning it all along and just refused to tell me because they wanted it to be a surprise or if I was just complaining about it so much that they just wrote it like that. But it was nice — it was a very validating episode.

There have been some especially crazy stories this season that have gotten mixed reviews from fans, like the episode where a monkey robbed Marshall. After five seasons with the show, did some scripts strike you as especially out-of-left-field this year?
I think [the writers] take ideas that they think are really funny, and they manifest those ideas however they can. But I feel like every episode sort of molds together, and sometimes we are doing things that feels kind of crazy. But it’s a sitcom we are allowed to push the envelope and try episodes where Marshall gets robbed by a monkey. If it works, it works and if it doesn’t, it doesn’t, but I like being on a show where they are trying new things.

What is the atmosphere like in between scenes? When I talked to a few cast members from the Big Bang Theory, they told me that they have these high stakes ping-pong tournaments that last the entire season.
We don’t have any ping-pong. We have scene changes when we move on to the next scene but we are really blessed to have an amazing crew and a great cast that gets along. Basically we hang out and chat and eat food and listen to music being played — there are a lot of live instruments being played but that’s about it.

Who plays instruments?
Carter plays the piano, and Jason plays the piano too. Some other guys play the guitar, and so there are some jam sessions.

Do you ever jam?
I attempt to, but I am never as good as they are. So it’s always slightly embarrassing.

What would you like to see happen to Robin next season? Do you feel protective of her?
Yeah, of course. I am going on six years with this character — which is kind of insane, but I would like to see her get a job that she is proud of. I think that her having this job that she has had for the last five years is a very funny thing, and I love doing the fake news, but it would be cool for her to get a really great job that makes her happy. I don’t think that love is anywhere on the horizon — maybe eventually, but I don’t think in this next season.

Would you like to see her end up with Barney?
I don’t know! I think it could happen. People always ask, “Is it going to be Barney or is it going to be Ted?” And I don’t know. I always thought that if Robin and Barney would get together, it would be at the end of the series, and now we have already had this momentary hook-up and I don’t know. It is always an interesting dynamic having the consummate bachelor mixed with the consummate bachelorette.

Is there one episode or scene that you remember being really fun to shoot?
All the Robin Sparkles stuff for me has been the best stuff to do. It’s the only time I have ever gotten to work in a recording studio, learn choreography and dress in ’80s clothing. It’s so much fun and when we did the “Sandcastles in the Sand” video, we were in Malibu for a whole day with our crew, just hanging out on the beach. There were dolphins swimming and I was thinking, “Wow, this is what I do for a living.” I love doing anything that has to do with Robin Sparkles, I hope the writers come up with more episodes for her.

So just to clarify, we will not see Robin Sparkles in season 5?
Nope. Unfortunately, no.

Hopefully Robin will quit her day job next season and return to Canada for a Robin Sparkles mall tour.
[Laughs] It’s possible. Anything is possible.

How I Met Your Mother – Spoiler Chat – E! Online – 4-19-2010

Marshall and Lily are the best married couple on television. Fact. Got any scoop on my favorite couple?
I do love some Marshmallow and Lilypad. In an upcoming episode, you’ll see your favorite couple spending a weekend sleeping in twin beds. You’d think a crazy-in-love couple like Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) would swear off sleeping in different beds forever after that. Hardly. But those two actually get twin beds for their home! Good luck on procreating in separate beds, Mr. and Mrs. Erikson.

HIMYM – Will Marshall and Lily have a baby?

In the fall of 2009, fans of “How I Met Your Mother” heard future Ted Mosby (aka Bob Saget) tell his kids how his friends quit smoking, mentioning that Lily (Alyson Hannigan) dropped the habit when she started trying to get pregnant and Marshall (Jason Segel) followed suit when his son was born.

There was no date given as to when that whole deal might go down. But, having just visited the set, I can tell you that the topic of “maybe baby?” is about to hit Marshall and Lily in a major way.

“We’re a show about exploring those rites of passage in the late 20s and the early 30s,” “HIMYM” co-creator Craig Thomas told Korbi TV during the filming of this year’s finale. “And it makes sense for Marshall and Lily, who’ve been together something like 14 years at this point, to be really considering that next rite of passage.”

That next rite of passage Thomas speaks of is of course pregnancy, something that his two lead actresses have recently experienced in real life. “Yeah, we’ve had a lot of babies born on this show,” he noted. “We really couldn’t have timed Lily and Marshall thinking about having a baby worse, a year after Alyson actually gave birth.”

And yet, for the show, the timing is sort of perfect. Five seasons and 100-plus episodes in, it does seem like the next logical step for TVs most loving married couple.

“It’s a great place to end [this fifth year] I think,” said Thomas. “The second half of the season hasn’t had an emphasis on ‘When’s Ted gonna meet her?’ and ‘Who’s the mother?’ It’s been more on watching Robin (Cobie Smulders) get into this relationship with Don (Benjamin Koldyke) and what does that mean for her, getting more serious with a guy now that she’s in her 30s. And it feels kind of fun to wrap up the season by putting the focus on Lily and Marshall and what’s coming for them. I’ve always felt like this show is about that second wave of adolescence. It’s not just about answering the question of who the mother is — even though we still have that question and I love writing about that question — but there’s something kind of great about deciding that we’re not going to end purely on that question. We’re going to show that we’ve really been telling a story about five characters.”

As for the aforementioned Robin, Thomas teased a somewhat more serious storyline that ends up in the finale as a kind of poignant emotional awakening for her.

Of course there have been rumors that one of “HIMYM”‘s former couples will reunite soon, which sparked the thought of Ted and Robin Part 2 being a possibility. I asked Thomas if he was aware of the talk and he offered this: “All I’ll say is, you know, we have a little bit of a triangle on the show. Both Barney and Ted have dated Robin and both were in love with her, so we have a fun moment toward the end of our season where that is acknowledged and explored. These are two guys who dated this girl who is awesome and now she’s getting really, really serious with this new guy Don — her cohost on the least-watched morning show on local television in New York — and there’s a great episode that kind of springs out of the idea that these are two guys who could want her back. It’s not the easiest thing to see someone who could have potentially been [your] dream girl get really serious with someone else.”

Thomas revealed that Robin will become involved with Don to a degree that she never really did with Ted or Barney and it will happen fast. “The end of the season explores Robin becoming a real boy, in a way, when it comes to love,” he explained. “She’s been a bit of a cold fish in the past. But we’re really going to see her be more vulnerable than she ever has and it’s really great stuff. Definitely some good comedy, but some really great dramatic acting from Cobie Smulders in our last couple episodes.”

As for Ted and Barney, the two will provide much of the comic relief, especially during the finale where we’ll see a blonde Josh Radnor and knife-juggling Neil Patrick Harris, dressed in a street performer jester-type outfit, apparently being driven crazy by one of only 11 women in the world who can swallow swords.

“There’s like this roller coaster ride of these really huge, exciting and emotional moments in certain characters’ lives and then just absolute insanity for other characters,” said Thomas. “I feel like it’s going to be a great finale, I feel like it’s going to be firing on all cylinders.”

As for Marshall and Lily, Thomas won’t say whether or not they intend to knock Lily up immediately or have the couple undergo fertility issues or have them run screaming from the whole process, for that matter. But one of the big questions of this finale definitely is, “Is the universe telling them to have a baby?”

Lily feels like the decision is too overwhelming to make on her own, so two episodes before the end of the season, she and Marshall will make a private deal saying that when they see their group’s fifth doppelganger, it will be time.

As longtime fans of “How I Met Your Mother” already know, we’ve seen three lookalikes so far: Lesbian Robin, Mustache Marshall and Stripper Lily. And before the finale, we’ll see the spitting image of Ted in the form of someone else too.

“And so,” said Thomas. “We meet them in the beginning of the finale, committing to the idea that [once they see Barney’s lookalike], they will to start trying [to have a baby]. And then all hell kind of breaks loose as they wait for that to happen.”

  3. twin beds are great specially if the space in your room is not that large *

  4. you can have twin beds at your home specially if you always spend your night with a special someone -.~

  5. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really something that I believe I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am having a look ahead for your next post, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
