In the Season 7 finale, Ted (Josh Radnor) and Victoria admitted they still had feelings for one another just as she was getting ready to tie the knot with another guy. Ted’s conscience got the best of him though and he decided to escort his ex directly to the ceremony. But just as he was about to drop her off, memories of their romance started flooding back and they bypassed the church.

Their little reunion hits a snag in the Sept. 24 opener when Ted discovers that Victoria didn’t bother to leave a Dear John note to her jilted fiancé — prompting him to turn the car around and head back to the church. “The episode shows all of the ramifications of that decision,” exec producer Craig Thomas teased to TVLine last May.
