After this past week's mostly-absurd half-hour "Bad Crazy," next Monday's all-new 'How I Met Your Mother' episode "The Ashtray" will dip back into its own history a bit as Ted and the gang once again find themselves face to face with George "The Captain" Van Smoot ('Twin Peaks' Kyle MacLachlan), former husband to Ted's ex-girlfriend Stella. More than that, the episode will see Barney reclaiming a bit of his wild side, so how would you like a first look? Check out a preview of 'How I Met Your Mother's "The Ashtray" inside!
'How I Met Your Mother' recently made a bold claim through this week's "Bad Crazy," declaring Ted's new girlfriend Jeanette ('SNL's' Abby Elliot) to be the character's last major romantic mistake before settling down and ultimately meeting the titular mother, but that doesn't mean the ghosts of Ted's romantic past won't come back to haunt him. This Monday's "The Ashtray" will see Stella's ex-husband “The Captain” ('Twin Peaks'' Kyle MacLachlan) seeking out Ted for unknown reasons, but what could he possibly be after? Check out the latest photos from The Captain's return in 'How I Met Your Mother's' "The Ashtray" inside!
Even though the current run of 'How I Met Your Mother' was recently confirmed to spill out into a ninth, and final season, plenty of plans for the remainder of the year are still in place. Case in point, as with what will (likely) no longer be the final appearance of Robin Sparkles in upcoming episode "P.S. I Love You," season 6 guest star Kyle MacLachlan will soon make his glorious return as well! Find out what brings "The Captain" back to 'How I Met Your Mother' inside!
