How I Met Your Father Season 2: What to expect in the new season?
The comedy follows Sophie as she tells her son the story of how she met his father – a story that catapults viewers back to the year 2022 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options. The new season is expected to pick up the plot from the final episode of the first season, “Timing Is Everything,” in which the viewers got to see that Sophie overhears Jesse’s remark “I love you” in his sleep during their first date. He admits to her that he did love Meredith and that’s why he declined her invitation to join her on tour.
He becomes irate when Sophie advises him not to abandon his dream for her because their relationship is still young. She visits the downstairs bar, MacLaren’s, where she encounters Robin Scherbatsky, who advises her not to act based solely on fear. Robin informs Sophie that “time is crucial” after she witnesses Jesse kissing Meredith. In the meantime, Sid urges Hannah to accept the fellowship, and they go away together. Ellen looks after a hostile cat she finds on the streets after a poor job interview. When she runs into Rachel, her new neighbor and the owner of the cat, she gets the job and Rachel agrees to give Ellen another try. Charlie admits he doesn’t want to be a bad dad like his mother when Valentina says she wants kids, and they break up.
In support of Sophie, Charlie, Ellen, Valentina, Sid, and Hannah turn up to the art exhibit.
