The week seems to have come and gone without the expected announcement about a ninth season of 'How I Met Your Mother,' but that hasn't changed our anticipation for the coming run of episodes following mid-season tearjerker "The Final Page, Part 2." Monday's upcoming installment "Ring Up" could be a bit light on mythology, but what's the buzz about Ted's new girlfriend ('Pretty Little Liars' Ashley Benson)? What about her has the gang so up in arms? Find out in an all-new clip from Monday's "Ring Up!"

Now that Barney and Robin have their engagement largely settled, it's back to business for 'How I Met Your Mother' chronicling the ups and downs of Ted Mosby's lovelife. The rest of the gang may have been paired off, but something about Ted's latest lady love ('Pretty Little Liars' star Ashley Benson) has Marshall, Lily, Barney and Robin none-too-eager to support their friend.

"Ring Up!" will also see Robin coming to grips with the unique effect her wedding ring has on others, but why does Barney seem so interested in Ted keeping up his latest relationship? And what's her issue with getting into MacLaren's for a drink?

Check out an all-new clip from Monday's 'How I Met Your Mother' episode "Ring Up!," and give us your predictions in the comments! How long until will we hear about a potential ninth season for the series?
