Barney Stinson returns for 'HOW I MET YOUR FATHER'
Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) appears in the series 'How I Met Your Father' about a decade after How I Met Your Mother concluded.
In the season 2 midseason finale of How I Met Your Father (airing Tuesday on Hulu), the suited-up casanova bumps into Sophie (Hilary Duff).
Barney is the second HIMYM original character to appear on HIMYF during a critical juncture in Sophie's life.
Cobie Smulders appeared as Robin in the season one finale to give Sophie guidance on her love life.
And it turns out that Smulders resuming her part is what triggered Harris' comeback.
Harris credits original HIMYM director Pam Fryman with ensuring that everything went smoothly.
