Monday, November 23, 2009: <i>How I Met Your Mother</i>

As New Moon has proven this weekend, sequels are always highly anticipated, and tonight's HIMYM is no exception. Titled "Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap," tonight's ep features the return of one of the most popular running storylines in the show's history. After being shelved for a while -- so long, in fact, that I wondered if it had been resolved and I'd missed it -- it seems that Marshall is ready to give Barney another one of the slaps he owes him from their ill-advised Slap Bet of yore. Having dispensed three of the five, a fourth will be given tonight... but it may not be Marshall doing the slapping.

No, it seems that Slap officiant Lily has granted her hubby the right to transfer his slap to someone else, namely two people who might actually have a reason to slap Barney. Lily wants to slap him for acting like... well, himself, so soon after their breakup, and Ted might want to slap Barney for running their mutual ex through the wringer like that. Why Marshall also grants slapping power to Lil's dad, played by guest-star Chris Elliott... I have no idea. Perhaps he's heard about Barney's frequent fantasies involving Lily? Start your countdown below, and get your own counter here.

How I Met Your Mother airs tonight at 8/7C on CBS. For more options, check out our Week in Preview.
