Ted might think the Slutty Pumpkin is an ideal woman for him when they first met years ago, but he changes his mind after he knows her better. In the upcoming Halloween episode of "How I Met Your Mother", Naomi, the girl behind the pumpkin costume, easily gets cozy with Ted but he does not feel the same way.
In one of the sneak peeks from the episode, Ted cannot find the right position just to lay down and stare at the starry sky with Naomi who is portrayed by Katie Holmes. In another preview, he complains about Naomi whispering the word "caress" in his ear, and asks his best friends if he should break up with her.
Ted finds Slutty Pumpkin again after he tracks down her costume in a shop window and digging into its rental history. Gushing about their relationship, co-creator Craig Thomas previously said, "She's beautiful, sweet and enthusiastic, but Ted's dealing with expectation versus reality, and so is she."
Ted and Naomi's relationship aside, the upcoming outing will also see Barney learning he is part Canadian and Robin teasing him about it. Meanwhile, Lily has pregnancy brain in "The Slutty Pumpkin Returns" which will air Monday, October 31 at 8/7c on CBS.
