How I Met Your Mother season 8 is gearing up for three breakups, and it sounds like one may have already happened by episode 3, "Nannies," which will see the one stable couple trying to find someone to watch Marvin.
HIMYM Season 8 Episode 3 "Nannies" Official Description
"When Lily and Marshall have trouble finding a nanny, they learn it's because of an elaborate scheme Barney came up with to meet girls. Meanwhile, Robin and Ted butt heads over who has a more serious relationship."
Is it any surprise that something Barney came up with is about meeting girls? What else would you expect from him? However, it sounds like it's not going to work in the end, since the cheat tweet of the episode reads, "Who will become Marshall and Lily's new Nanny? It's someone nobody would ever guess," and Mickey (Chris Elliot) is back in this episode. Will he be the new nanny? That wouldn't be too surprising, and at least Marshall and Lily would know that Barney wouldn't scare him off. But can Mickey stick around long enough to be a reliable nanny?
Then there's Robin and Ted's storyline in this How I Met Your Mother season 8 episode. Given Ted and Victoria's history, you would think their relationship is more serious than Robin's (especially after that glimpse at Robin and NickÂ—and his absÂ—together in the premiere), but there could be more to Robin and Nick than meets the eye. In the end, it doesn't even matter which relationship is more serious since they're both going to be over soon anyway. Could this discussion be what leads Robin and Ted to both realize they need to breakup with their significant others?
