How I Met Your Mother co-creator Craig Thomas says that not only is Britney Spears "better" in tonight's encore than she was in her first cameo on the CBS sitcom, but her latest appearance will actually advance storyline. "[Her] return answers a larger mystery set up earlier in the series," Thomas tells the
Reporter. "So there's a good plot reason why she's there." And yes, should Mother get picked up for another season (as expected), Ms. Spears could swing by again. Says Thomas, "When people watch Britney's second appearance on the show they'll see that the door is still open for her to come back." - MWM
