How I Met Your Mother will be returning for its seventh season on September 19 on CBS 2 in Queens at 8PM, and when it does, it’s time to go to a wedding or two. The season premiere will show everyone at Punchy’s wedding, but Lily and Marshall are going to be trying to keep a secret from everyone else.
Last season ended with Lily and Marshall expecting a baby, and with the season premiere picking up just “a few days after the finale,” they’ll still be figuring out how to tell everyone or, rather, how to keep it a secret, as they’re planning to. Craig Thomas told Entertainment Weekly,
“The first episode is the story of: Do you tell people right away or do you wait? How do you keep that secret from the people you care most about in the world? So Lily gets there and says, ‘You’re drinking for two tonight. I’m eating for two, so you’re drinking for two.’ And basically, it’s an episode where Marshall gets trashed doing double the shots of everyone.”
The secret will obviously get out sooner rather than later, but it’s beginning to sound like however everyone else finds out will make for an amusing episode. How will everyone react when Lily tells them she’s positive she’s pregnant and she and Marshall are going to be parents? How will things change for the gang now that one of their own is expecting? Will they continue to hang out at MacLaren’s? Carter Bays did say,
“One of the biggest questions about Lily getting pregnant was how do we keep Lily at the bar.”
So will Lily continue to hang out with the others at the bar, or could viewers expect to see less of her in MacLaren’s in HIMYM season 7? What else could be changing?
How I Met Your Mother‘s seventh season premieres on September 19 on CBS in Queens. How do you think the others will find out about Lily’s pregnancy?
