CHEAT TWEET: Will Robin &Barney share something more than quality time together at a strip club? #HIMYM 11/12 @8PM ET/PT @joemanganiello http://bit.ly/P66OJ1

“The Stamp Tramp” — Marshall recommends his old law school classmate Brad for a job at his firm, but the interview goes awry, leaving Marshall to do damage control with his boss. Meanwhile, Robin helps negotiate Barney’s return to the strip club circuit, on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, Monday, Nov. 12 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”) returns as Brad, Marshall’s friend from law school, and Joe Lo Truglio (“Reno 911!”) guest stars as Honeywell, Marshall’s boss.

We like that the season is doing its best to focus on Marshall and Lily too (they’re also bringing in Alyson Hannigan’s former Buffy co-star Seth Green for a Marshall/Lily centric storyline), but it’s good to know that the episode will also see a development for Barney and Robin! They have to get together soon, if How I Met Your Mother wants to leave time for them to get engaged and plan their wedding before the end of season 8!

Are you looking forward to seeing True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello make another appearance on How I Met Your Mother? Do you think there will be some good bromance moments between Marshall and Brad in the episode?

“The Stamp Tramp” airs Monday, November 12 at 8/7c on CBS.
