Read the titles of two upcoming How I Met Your Mother season 8 episodes, as well as a spoiler about a new love interest for Barney!

CBS has revealed that the title of 8×09 will be “Lobster Crawl,” while 8×10 is called “The Over-Correction.”

Barney and Robin season 8 How I Met Your Mother
Meanwhile, E! Online has a spoiler about a new love interest of Barney’s which will further delay the reunion of Barney and Robin which we’ve all been waiting for! They write, “Barney will start a relationship soon, and it’s with someone we’ve met in the past. Not only that, it’s someone who has pissed off Robin in the past. Cue the HIMYM fireworks!”

Who could it be? Our best guess would be Robin’s old co-star Jessica, who she sang “Two Beavers Are Better Than One” with, considering the following picture of Robin Sparles which Cobie Smulders tweeted out (with the caption, “Guess who’s back…”):

Robin Sparkles season 8 How I Met Your Mother
The return of Robin Sparkles has also been hinted at on TV Guide, as they preview the episode airing on November 19, entitled “Twelve Horny Women.” They write that the episode will, “offer a glimpse into what life on tour was like for the Canadian teen sensation.” Hopefully we’ll get another song from Robin Sparkles, whose first hits can of course be found on the official How I Met Your Mother soundtrack.

Who do you think Barney might be hooking up with, and are you excited for the new drama this will bring?

How I Met Your Mother returns Monday October 29 with the episode “The Autumn of Break-Ups.” The description reads:

With a rash of relationships on rocky ground, Ted and Victoria find themselves at a romantic crossroads, while Robin thinks Barney’s screwy when he decides to employ a dog as his wingman.

Will Ted and Victoria break up in this episode (which was previously titled “Pauses & Paws”)? We’ll have to wait and see…
