Spoiler Alert: Mosbatsky is back together. Say whaaa?!
Yes, tonight it's Thanksgiving in How I Met Your Mother land, and let’s just say Ted’s giving thanks for some bedroom action with a hot bird. Last season’s golden couple will find themselves alone together for the first time since their postbreakup blowout, and one thing will lead to another. Yeee!
So, does this mean Robin and Ted are back together for good? Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor gave us the scoopy stuffing...
“They know that they’re not [meant to be together], but there’s still an attraction there,” Smulders said.
"I think it’s realistic that we broke up kind of like adults," Radnor added, "and that we had that little immature backlash in the season opener, and now we find ourselves in this spot. It’s nice because these are people who are sort of struggling toward adulthood, just kind of limping there. They’re damaged and sweet, and they wanna be kids, but they’re also playing at being adults.”
So, would they vote for a long-term reconciliation of Mosbatsky? Smulders seemed to be on board: “I think they’re really good at writing relationships on this show, so I do miss the funny situations you find yourself in when you’re a couple. And I think Josh and I work really well together. He’s very easy to play off of, and he gives a lot.”
And tonight’s episode is no exception. The normally lighthearted half hour will include its usual dose of hilarity (including that third slap we’ve been waiting so long for—wheee!), but it ends with serious drama.
Still, Smulders doesn’t believe the relationship will be salvaged: “I never know what the writers have in mind, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
So, if Ted and Robin don’t get back together, might Barney have a shot with her at some point? “I don’t know,” Smulders admitted. “But I do think it’s a possibility.” Something tells me Barney would say the same.
HIMYM (as the cool kids call it) airs tonight on CBS.
