On Feb. 8 Carter Matt says that there is a new character coming to the cast of "How I Met Your Mother," and it's the son of someone that has some significance to the show.
Fans should expect to meet the son of Carl, MacLaren's bar keep, and possible owner. While nobody knows who is set to play him yet, it has to be assumed that he will have a somewhat significant part in the show, or possibly the spin off coming to CBS. MacLaren has been in at least a dozen episodes over the seasons and while he is dead now, his son isn't and will be appearing in at at least two episodes, an upcoming one and the season finale.
There are only a handful of episodes left of the show, therefore, every one of them will be important to the show. MacLaren's has been a significant part of the "How I Met Your Mother" series, therefore, it can only be assumed that Carl's son (whose name we don't know yet) will also have some importance as well.
Could he be related to one of the members of the famed friends? Is it possible that he's the sister of "the mother?" Could he be a stand-in slap bet commissioner? There are so many questions as to who he could be.
How do you think Carl's son will play into the show?
