How I Met Your Mother Season 8, Episode 4 - Who Wants To Be A Godparent

Who will be the godparents of Marshall and Lily's baby Marvin? That appears to be the question to be answered during tonight's episode. Based on this clip, It looks like Marshall and Lily have taken a fun approach to testing their friends' godparenting abilities. Let the games begin!

Choosing a godparent can be serious business, whether or not there's actual religion involved. Marshall and Lily have put a little fun into this seriousness by creating a wheel of categories. Because wheels are awesome, and so are fancy gameshow dresses. In the clip below, Barney is asked to explain how he'd tell little Marvin about Marshall and Lily's demise, should something terrible happen.

For such a morbid topic, they managed to squeeze a few laughs out of it. Though, something tells Barney's answer may not earn him a point. The game scenario reminds me of the episode of Friends that had the group quizzing each others' knowledge of one another. That one ended with the girls switching apartments with the boys. Will the stakes end up being just as high for Marshall and Lily's game?

How I Met Your Mother airs Mondays at 8/7c on CBS.
