How I Met Your Mother is wrapping things up in its ninth season, and the writers are apparently experimenting with some odd methods in this last year. Cobie Smulders, who plays Robin Scherbatsky, told E! Online that an entire episode of this upcoming season will by rhyming. She didn’t give too many details on the scheme, although it sounds likes the rhyming structure will change throughout the episode.
It’s not a huge surprise that the show would go for a quirky special episode; this entire season is an odd structure. The whole year takes place over one 56-hour weekend, where Ted will finally meet his future wife at the wedding of Robin and Barney. And if it all goes well, CBS is considering a spinoff with a female lead, tentatively referred to as How I Met Your Father.
