On May 12, 2008, the 19th episode of How I Met Your Mother's Season 3, "Everything Must Go", aired on CBS, and if featured Britney Spears as a guest, reprising her role of Abby. She had previously appeared on the March 24 episode "Ten Sessions".

This episode was written by Jonathon Groff and Chris Harris, and it was directed by Pamela Fryman. Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) finds out Abby has been sabotaging his dates, since a previous episode called "The Bracket" (where Britney didn't actually appear). After confronting her in a taxi, he tells her Ted (Josh Radnor), who she is in love with, dumped him as a friend and they both start bashing him, which leads to them sleeping together again.

 

They try to make Ted feel bad about their supposed relationship, but he's not falling for the trick. Barney pushes it further by proposing to Abby, but she doesn't realize it's part of the joke and believes they're actually getting married. At the end Barney goes to her apartment and tells her they can't marry, because Ted is in love with her. He gives her Ted's address and tells her to stop by at 2:00 AM "because he works late". The episode finishes here with a sort of cliffhanger, suggesting there could still be more to this story, however this would be the last time that Britney, and thus, her character Abby, appeared in the series, so we never get to know what happened afterwards.

Honestly? This is when I started seeing her as a real actress, she's actually really good! I wish she had kept working on this part of entertainment as a side thing...

Crazy how this was so close to her breakdown.

The only time I ever watched that show :staysalty_hands_rub_so_there_blue_walk_away_made_my_point:

Also how gorgeous does her hair look, and that purple suits her nicely.

I’m kinda worried after Jane The Virgin though.

Yea, that popped into my mind, but I quickly banished the thought. I don't want that to happen again :gross_britney_ew_sick_red_sunglasses_cringe_disgusted:
