How I Met Your Mother - Season 8 - Carter Bays Zap2It Interview

Zap2it: How did the hour-long episode come together?
Carter Bays: Because of Hurricane Sandy we got pre-empted a week ... and we had episode 12, we knew we wanted it to be our Christmas episode, and we were thinking of creative ways to catch up. ... Episodes 11 and 12 really felt like two halves of the same story, so we thought, let's make this our big hour-long Christmas special. It worked out nicely, because I think one story leads into the other very smoothly. It's going to be a really special hour of TV.

The Robin-Barney story is at the center of it, correct?
Yeah. The [past] few episodes leading up to the Christmas episode are kind of about Robin's [Cobie Smulders] journey of realizing maybe there is something there for her and Barney, and her figuring out Barney [Neil Patrick Harris] is the right guy for her. Then Barney's off on his little journey, so it's not going to be as easy as it sounds.

Ted [Josh Radnor] seems to have stopped dating since his breakup with Victoria. Will he start up again soon?
Right now his focus is his career, and we're going to see the completion of the GNB tower he was commissioned to design. It's a huge feather in his cap professionally, but it will also sort of signal for him a chapter closing and the readiness for a new chapter to begin. That will be the thrust of what the second half of the season is about for him -- realizing some doors have closed and maybe there are some other doors that are open to him that he should explore.

You cast Abby Elliott before the season even started, but we haven't heard about her since. What's her role?
We booked her very early on, but we were trying to figure out the right time to bring out her character. It's a very fun arc that we're working on for her, dating Ted. It's a very interesting story -- I don't know how much I'm allowed to talk about it just yet. ... I think [she'll first appear] around February sweeps.
