As we creep towards the fifth season finale of "How I Met Your Mother," one serious question looms large: Will Marshall and Lily begin the (potentially) arduous process of trying to conceive? Well, I've got the answer -- find that out, as well as how Neil Patrick Harris dressed like a bizarro Aladdin factors into it in the spoiler zone below!
A little backstory -- the prospect of Lily and Marshall becoming Mom and Dad is something that's been building ever since they got married in season two. When I asked Alyson Hannigan about potential parenthood back in January, she said, "the writers toyed with the idea but I think it would definitely hinder our bar scenes. So I know they'll get around to it, I just don't know if they’re ready to not have us at the bar all the time."
Well, it seems that the writers have made a definitive choice since the May 24 season finale will see Lily and Marshall establishing a toddler timetable. The plan they devise is also where that episode -- "Doppelgangers" -- derives its title.
TV's cutest couple decides to leave their amniotic adventures in the hands of destiny. And no, I don't mean that in a "pulling the goalie" kind of way -- lilypad and marshmallow decide that when they finally happen upon Barney's doppelganger, they will start trying to have a baby.
And I think it's safe to say from the sight of this sword wielding, carrot topped, bizarro Barney that it might be time to babyproof MacLaren's!
