In the episode, titled “P.S. I Love You,” Barney uncovers the lost episode of “Underneath the Tunes,” featuring the pop star and a slew of famous faces, including Canucks Jason Priestley, Alex Trebek and hockey player Luc Robitaille appearing as themselves.

We’ve also got a sneak peek at James Van Der Beek reprising his role as Robin’s ex, Simon, who meets up with Barney in the most holy of Canadian places: Tim Hortons!

The latest chapter in the pop singer’s saga will also show off “a little bit of a darker, edgier Robin Sparkles,” according to executive producer Carter Bays, as viewers learn “what dominoes had to fall to get her from there” to who she is today.

Check out the gallery below, and then hit the comments with your thoughts.

  • I really hate to reinforce our stereotype, but I really love the Tim Horton’s references. Tim Horton’s is engrained in our lives, and say what you will but anytime I leave the country, the first thing I do when I land in Canada is get an extra large double double!

    I feel like the look of the episode is a “Behind the Music” like show. I really hope so! That would be awesome!
