We knew that Ted and Victoria (cake girl from Season 1) would not last forever, which is why they have to be the next couple to break up.

Meanwhile, Barney makes a dog his wingman in an effort to think of new ways to sleep with women. These are all fun things that the creators are doing, but audiences just want their answer to who the mother is already!
