With Lily and her sinister ability to ruin someone who makes her plans go kapoofy, this week's upcoming episode makes one promising hilarious ride. After a week's absence, How I Met Your Mother returns tonight. Episode 5x18, "Say Cheese", celebrates Lily's birthday-turned-bad over dinner when Ted brings a stranger/date.
Much to Ted's disdain, and our amusement, Lily goes to great lengths to keep Ted's date out of the traditional photo she takes every year of the gang. Of course, it's Lily! Speaking of pictures, the group notices that Barney always looks "drop-dead gorgeous" whenever he's been taken a picture of as compared to Marshal who doesn't look good at all. So the mission ensues: take Barney's worst photo ever. Goodluck on that friend!
How I Met Your Mother airs Monday, March 22 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network starring Josh Radnor as Ted, Jason Segel as Marshal, Cobie Smulders as Robin, Neil Patrick Harris as Barney, and Alyson Hannigan as Lily. Laura Prepon ("That 70's Show) returns as Karen, Ted's Ex-Girlfriend, and Anne Dudek("Big Love", "House, MD") guest stars as Natalie, one of Ted's Date.
