“How I Met Your Mother” Spoiler

Ask Ausiello posted a “How I Met Your Mother” spoiler:

Question: I thought the HIMYM smoking episode was hilarious, but does Alyson Hannigan really smoke? —Joe
In a word, God, no! (Okay, two words.) “The smoking episode was horrible to shoot,” says the actress. “It was a funny script, but faking all that smoking was murder on my throat and eyes. They were fake cigarettes, but it was still really gross to us non-smokers.” More appealing to Hannigan is the idea of giving Lily and Marshall a baby. “I actually wouldn’t mind being pregnant on the show at some point,” she says. “And I think these characters are getting to an age where that just starts happening naturally. But it would certainly hinder the bar scenes. Pregnant woman in the bar drinking? Not so [funny]. Then the baby would get there and we’d have to figure out what to do with it all the time. It would separate Lily and Marshall from the group too much [which] would interrupt the camaraderie, which is the cornerstone of HIMYM. So I think, in the end that is what is truly stalling the baby. But if we get enough seasons, it would have to happen eventually.”

Marshall to be the Mother?!

Just as Ted Mosby has grown while telling his children the story of how he met their mother, so has CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother.” Gathered Thursday night at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills to celebrate “Mother’s” 100th episode, stars Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Cobie Smulders (Robin), Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) and Alyson Hannigan (Lily) as well as executive producers/co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and executive producer/director Pamela Fryman shared several stories, including how the cast genuinely click as friends.

Starting with when Hannigan crossed paths with friend Harris during network auditions for “Mother,” the cast treated the packed house with a hint of what a day on their set would be like — “We’ll just spend hours doing cat puns,” Hannigan said. From that point forward, no response was sacred as “litter,” “paws,” “catamarans,” “purr-fect” and more were all worked into the conversation.

Topics bounced around the panel like the random yet serialized nature of the show and included Bays’ reveal that series lothario Barney Stinson was initially envisioned as a large “John Belushi-type” until Harris walked in. The role of Lily Eriksen, however, was always meant for Hannigan, who spent six seasons playing Willow on Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

As for when Ted will — finally — meet the mother, Thomas was coy:

“We always feel like a Bush-era secretary when asked that question,” he joked.

“We like the idea that he doesn’t have a kid yet but he’s already a dad,” Bays added.

“If we keep waiting, science will catch up and there’s no reason that Marshall won’t be the mother,” Segel joked.

“How I Met Your Mother’s” 100th episode airs Monday.

“How I Met Your Mother” Spoilers

AusielloFiles posted a “How I Met Your Mother” spoiler:

Question: What do I have to do to get some How I Met Your Mother scoop around here? —Hannah
You have to simmah down nah and keep reading. Golden Globe nominee Neil Patrick Harris tells me that the musical number at the end of the 100th episode on Jan. 11 will demand repeat viewings. “There were so many great little things that we were able to put into each shot,” he says. “The song [titled “Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit”] happens so quickly that I think you’ll go back and go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, those mannequins in the background are actually humans that are moving.’ There are going to be a lot of those little things.”

Question: Please tell me it’s not really the end for Barney and Robin on How I Met Your Mother! —Daphne
Neil Patrick Harris isn’t convinced it is. “I think there are still feelings there,” he says. “I don’t know that it’s done.” Regardless, the romance — which he says was “supposed to be two, maybe three episodes and it turned into seven” — served its purpose in that it humanized Barney. “At a certain point when you see someone who is just abhorrent week in and week out with his sexual conquests it’s nice to figure out what the Kryptonite is there,” he says. “Otherwise, [he] becomes a one-trick pony. So I’m glad that they fleshed him out a little bit. I also got to work with Cobie in a more serious nature. It was fun to do actual scenes with her as opposed to just being jokey.” What now? Does Barney just revert back to being a one-dimensional cad? “There’s no way to not go back to where he was pre-Robin,” he maintains. “That’s Barney Stinson in a nutshell. He suppresses all actual emotion and just plants his seed wherever he goes. Can I say that in EW? I meant it in a dirty way.” Actually, you can’t. I’ll let this one slide.
