'How I Met Your Mother': On set with Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders -- EXCLUSIVE

In the first of two videos from the set of next week’s big (and we promise it’s BIG) episode of How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders sit down with EW to talk about Barney and Robin’s relationship, what the fans tell them about how long it’s taking for them to (finally!) get together, and what they think their characters’ eventual wedding will look like.

The chemistry between Harris and Smulders is as true in real life as it is on camera. In the conversation below, they share a high five, rib each other on their characters, and ponder Robin’s reaction to Barney’s big plans. (Per the episode description, Barney will tell Ted that he plans on proposing to Patrice, “which leads Ted to debate whether or not to tell Robin.”)

Neil Patrick Harris gets 'Tanked' at the Magic Castle -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

'HIMYM': Go behind the scenes on Barney and Robin's wedding day -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We know from the finale of How I Met Your Mother‘s seventh season that Barney and Robin get hitched — but, when, how, and who gets cold feet are questions that are all still up in the air. EW was on set for the shoot of the first episode of season 8 — titled “Farhampton” — which opens with Robin and Ted back in the bridal suite where we left them. We also got a sneak peek at the second episode of the season, “The Pre-nup” where we see Barney discussing the legal aspects of his upcoming nuptials (with Quinn this time, of course, — not Robin!).

“We like to play with the timeline on our show,” Cobie Smulders told EW. “We’re shooting this scene at the beginning for the first episode, but it’s going to continue at the very end of the season. I feel like the wedding is going to come back at the end of the season, but am I walking down the aisle? I don’t know.”

Check out what Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, and Josh Radnor had to say about coming back to set and what we can expect in season 8 in the exclusive video below.

Neil Patrick Harris apologizes for 'tranny' remark

Neil Patrick Harris apologized today for using the word “tranny” during a segment of Thursday’s Live With Kelly. “Truly sorry for saying the word ‘tranny’ on Live this week. Twice!” tweeted Harris. “Should have been more thoughtful. Didn’t at all mean to offend.”

Guest-host Harris and Ripa had inhaled some sulfur hexafluoride, “helium’s evil twin,” during a science experiment that made their voices lower. Recognizing that he sounded very similar to Buffalo Bill, the killer from Silence of the Lambs, Harris drew laughs when he said, “Put the lotion in the basket.”

When the gas expired, Harris said, “I’ve never sounded more like a tranny in my life.”
