Read the synopses for three upcoming How I Met Your Mother episodes: “The Over-Correction” and “The Final Page” (parts 1 and 2).

Although tomorrow night’s How I Met Your Mother episode “Lobster Crawl” will see Robin attempt to seduce Barney, it looks like the road to Farhampton isn’t quite paved just yet.

In the following week’s episode, titled “The Over-Correction”:

Barney’s developing relationship with Patrice leaves Robin questioning his motives, while Marshall’s widowed mother gets back into the dating pool, but he thinks she may be swimming with a shark.

Why is Barney befriending Robin’s would-be BFF? Whatever the reason, Robin is gonna be very pissed off about it all, if the description for “The Final Page, Part 1″ is anything to go by:

Robin takes steps to have Patrice fired from WWN, while Marshall puts a jinx on Barney. Later, Ted invites his architecture professor to the dedication of the GNB building; and Marshall and Lily bump into an oddball acquaintance from college.

“The Final Page” is How I Met Your Mother‘s two-part Christmas special episode, and in the second half:

Christmas approaches and Ted wrestles with whether to tell Robin about Barney’s intentions involving Patrice, while Marshall and Lily get an early Yule gift, a night away from Marvin, but a case of separation anxiety strikes and threatens to ruin the evening.

Seeing as this is the show’s first hour-long episode and that some big developments are set to happen, let’s throw out the theory that Barney needs Patrice’s help proposing to Robin!

How I Met Your Mother returns tomorrow night with 8×09 “Lobster Crawl.”

    Oh my god, Barney and Patrice? That is NOT awesome…

  • Barnman&Robin

    “The final page” … is anyone else thinking “… of the playbook” ?! That would be great – Barney final most elaborate “play” (involving Patrice somehow…) to win back Robin :-) … On the other hand, I still don`t understand, why Barney would have to work so hard to get Robin back, after she broke his heart. I would actually prefer Robin proposing to HIM, but I don`t know if they would actually be this unconventional …

      I love that theory. :)

      It would be great to see Robin propose to Barney, but I think they really need for it to be Barney, taking that step. Although they’re both serial commitment-phobes, I think Barney is the worst of the pair, and if we’re to believe that he’s actually fully ready to settle down with Robin we need to see that he’s thought it out, not just saying yes in the moment. But it could be a dual proposal situation like Chandler/Monica, I’d be cool with that.

      • Barnman&Robin

        I see your point … after all, Barney just searched for a new STRIP CLUB to go to … Still I feel he has taken more leaps towards Robin in the past, than the other way around. Either way, I am just looking forward to “yes !!!” :-)

        Part One was originally called “The Silence of the Jinx,” and part two was originally called “The Robin,” so yes. I do hope and believe it is another “play.” And needless to say. I do hope it works.

      I would love that I don’t really want her to propose to him but the playbook idea sounds amazing :D

    Okay, here is my advanced theory: (I have to admit, I may not have thought this way, if I hadn`t known, that the Christmas episode is called “the final page”, but now it makes total sense, especially after watching “lobster crawl”):

    Barneys “play” to win back Robin has already begun: In Splitsville, he originally just planned to help a friend, which accidentally turned into an honest declaration of love for Robin. When they were walking outside afterwards, he realised, that she still had feelings for him, too (the way she touched his chest, their looks …) and he realised, they would have a true chance. But what is keeping them apart, is, that Robin cannot admit her feelings. And I think, that is, where his play started…. He knows Robin so well, that he is going to get HER to confess her love to him (and then he will say something like “yes, I know…”, reveal the play and then propose to her …. That would be awesome!).
    1. So, the play started, when he got “drunk” (who knows, if he really was …) with her and made a bold move (which he knew, she would back out of …).
    2. Then take this incidence as a reason to tell her, that he is done pursuing her (which he knows will make her realise, she likes his attention….).
    3. Then resisting her advances, and feeding her lines like “having to find out what “he” wants in life and having NO IDEA what that is …” (SHE should think about this…) and looking lost and pityful, so he knows she would come after him, where …
    4. she would find him with Patrice, out of all women.

    Now, jealousy comes into play, and eventually Robin would have to ask herself WHY she is this jealous, and if would really only want to hook up with him one “last” time …. So, while Robin was trying to “play” Barney in “Lobster Crawl”, she is already a part of his larger play:-) …. And the reviews criticizing Barney for being out of character for refusing Robin, when she was throwing herself at him – it`s all part of the plan!

    What do you guys think?!
    I am so curious now to see, how things are going to unfold …

      right on point dude… it’s barney and robin… so even though the wait is really long… it has got to be LEGENDARY! and while the audience already knows they are going to end up together and that is not a surprise anymore, the producers have to create an intricate series of events to how it eventually led up to a proposal.
      i hope (and i know you do too) that the proposal is going to be as awesome as possible! i think i’m will cry if that happens… sniff sniff…

      • joyvee

        sorry for the flawed english…

      you read my mind. This is EXACTLY how I think this’ll play out. But for some reason (I may be completely wrong), I think Patrice is in on the plan. All she wants is to make Robin happy. And When Barney said “we talked all night long,” I think it was about this “play.”

      • Barnman&Robin

        … seems like we both read Barneys mind:-). I am, too, convinced, that Patrice is in on the plan! Barney apparently had her contacts (from the BFF funday invitation), she would love to help her best friend, and who knows, maybe he promised her, she would be one of the bridesmaids, if Robin said yes;-) … Also, I am not sure, if the conversation at the office actually happened (“Whenever I see someone sad, I feel the urge to give them cookies …” sounds more like a description of Patrice, than something she would actually say…). Seems more like Barney made up that conversation to explain how he “met” Patrice…

          I’m really excited that we got it all right! :)
