Fans were also wondering what would become of the remaining slaps that Marshal is given to give Barney...don't worry. Those will not be left behind. In fact, co-creator Craig Thomas told the panel "There is going to be an episode in the middle of the season that takes place during the course of one slap," said Thomas. "We're going to get the tennis camera that the U.S. Open uses to get slow motion [footage] of Roger Federer's serve."
I am already declaring this my favourite episode of all time...in line with all the other episodes about the slaps.
I will say, it's about time for the show to end...8 seasons of 'maybe that's the mother' has been getting kind of old. I completely appreciate the CBS promo of Ted's kids losing their minds and telling him to wrap it up. Amazing. Love it.
The final season premieres on Monday September 23. Get ready...it's your final chance to suit up, meet Ted and be Legen...wait for it...dary.
