HIMYM Photo Preview: Robin Gets Serenaded! Plus, Meet Ted's Much Younger Girlfriend

Now that How I Met Your Mother‘s Robin is engaged, she’ll have to learn to adjust to the power of the bling in the episode airing Jan. 21 on CBS. In fact, in this first look of photos, her engagement ring appears to make her so irresistible to guys that they break out into song!

Meanwhile, Ted finds himself dating a much younger and wilder girl (Pretty Little Liars‘ Ashley Benson) — something Barney wants to see his pal continue to do even though the two have nothing in common.

But first up in the slideshow, a sneak peek at next Monday’s episode, in which Barney must face Robin’s scary dad (Twin Peaks‘ Ray Wise) to ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

    so no shots of teds girlfriend then even though she is a big part of the episode and is talked about a lot in the article, seems a little weird.
    hopefully that song and dance number doesnt take up too much time.
    always good to see ray wise on tv, he needs a regular role. hopefully he is as insane as robin’s stories about his childhood say he is

  2. justsomegirl says:

    Sounds like a fantasy number of Robin’s, like Barney’s “Girls vs Suits”. Looks like it’ll be fun!

  3. Mike says:

    Wasn’t benson supposed to have some connection to Barney(a la his sister he’s never met), either way looking forward to this one.

    • Azerty says:

      I think the exact synopsis explains that Barney encourages Ted to continue this relationship until he (Barney) learns something important about Ashley Benson. Probably that she is his sister. The writers are really playing with every theory people came up with (Wendy the waitress is the mother, Barney’s sister is the mohter…)

      • Mike says:

        I hope that is what happens, I am ready for the sister theory to be debunked, since I was never a huge fan if the theory to begin with.

      • Russ says:

        Wendy the waitress is married to someone else, they had a episode about it.

        • Azerty says:

          Yes I know that’s what I meant. A few years ago there was that theory that Wendy would turn up to be the mother but they made a story about her. And now they are doing the same with Barney’s sister.

    That guy playing Robins dad… It looks like they went for Billy Bob Thornton, but had to settle…

    • Alan says:

      that’s ray wise, really successful character actor. he has been on the show several times before as robin’s dad. much, much better actor than billy bob thornton

  5. Azerty says:

    I am glad they are playing with Ashley Benson’s age because I feel she is way too young for Ted. But maybe that’s because of Pretty Little Liars in which she plays a high school teenager.
    Btw would be nice to have a meeting between Ashley Benson as Barney’s sister and Lucy Hale as Robin’s sister at their wedding (and a wink to PLL, like both them get a text at the same time and look scare/curious? they made reference to Lost with Jorge Garcia so why not to PLL?)

  6. Liz says:

    I liked it when the actor who plays Victor Newman on Y&R was Robin’s father…he was more intimidating.

  7. Alicia says:

    So yet again, Ted is pretty much Ross from Friends.

    Momma plays bass?!
