‘How I Met Your Mother’ Season 8 Spoilers: Ted’s Journey to His Future

Of course everyone was talking about Barney and Robin after the How I Met Your Mother season 7 finale since they are the ones getting married in the future, but the show did begin with Future Ted telling his kids how he met their mother. When will that happen? Well, he’s going to at least be getting on the right path soon.

It’s already been revealed that they’ll end up turning around (again) because Victoria didn’t bother leaving Klaus a note explaining herself, but what does Victoria mean in the long run for Ted? Executive producer Craig Thomas told TVLine, “Ted Mosby [is] closing the last couple doors in his mind that he has to close to really be ready to meet the mother. One of them was Robin, and the other door is Victoria.” These are things he needs to do before he’s ready to be the guy with those kids in the future. The end of How I Met Your Mother season 7 saw him and Robin finally fixing things and moving forward as friends. He’s going to be the one she needs to see on her wedding day. This is all leading up to the big reveal of the mother’s identity, something fans have been waiting for.

So what can you expect to see from Ted when his relationship with Victoria fails (again)? Thomas revealed, “It is going to lead to the best thing in his life.” This seems to be just like Robin, who will have a new romance in season 8, which will inevitably lead her back to Barney. Sometimes a relationship is very important not only for what it means for you, but for where it leads you, and that’s going to be the case for these two. Ted has always said he wanted a family, but he’s now getting to the point where he’s ready for the right woman and for that future.
