The writers are probably pulling the ol' bait and switch at the end of the season, but I like Quinn for Barney.
CBS (ended 2014)
|QUINN, i was never one for Robin and Barney and i hope they also end that particular romance this year, can't be doing with it for another season.|
agreed. really hoping this is the season that both Ted and Barney let go of thoughts/feelings of Robin.
I originally really wanted Barney and Robin together. But, they were so OOC when they were a couple. It ended up being such a horrible match, and it produced some truly awful episodes.
I think Barney and Robin could be interesting together, if written correctly. But, one of the things I do agree with their conclusions from when they tried to date was that their two awesomes cancel each other out (although, now, I don't find Robin so awesome anymore.)
So, I got to say I like Quinn. So, I got to go for Quinn here.
Robin all the way! Its like with Ross and Rachel in friends, imagine if the writes wouldn't have made them work?? Why would they tease us so much at the beggining of the season with their relationship if not to bring them together at the end?? Plus if Quinn was the mother why didn't Ted call her aunt Quinn as he does with the others?? Or why didn't the children react to it at all??
ROBIN....Oh please, it's more than obvious that Barney will marry Robin! Quinn is just a distraction and I'm actually 100% sure she will be bad news in the end, the writers are very clever and there is a reason why she is called "Karma"! Why do you think they're rushing this story line so much, they missed the build up of this relationship just for the bride mystery to be kept alive until the finale! She is just a distraction and frankly I don't see what's to like about her, she hasn't shown any significant sing that she truly likes Barney and I don't think they have any kind of chemistry (just my opinion)!
There is a reason why Barney is the only one that doesn't know about Robins infertility, there is a reason why they have barely talked to each other since 7.10, there are so many reasons and hints that absolutely confirm Robin as the bride. They wouldn't possibly take the risk and make a guest star who is even booked for their new show to be the bride! Plus she wasn't even planned as a character when they wrote the finale of the season 7, Becki Newton herself said that she went and talked to the writers about how she wanted to be part of the show and how she would be a good match for playing Barneys girlfriend, so they thought about it and accepted. They already wrote the finale and of course knew who the bride is so whoever came after that IS NOT the bride. There's just too much history and chemistry between Barney and Robin to just be ignored.
I think it's quite obviously going to be Robin. Quinn is the quintessential 'filler' character. She seems so 'perfect' for Barney on paper but let's be honest, we know absolutely nothing about her, she has had no back story, nothing to make us want to sympathise with her or get to know her better. How could a well-loved and established character of the show end up with someone like that?
And yet, we know that Robin loves Barney, and that Barney loves Robin. I'm sure the writers will do everything they can to make us think otherwise right up until the very last moment, but I have no doubt in my mind that Robin and Barney end up together.
