A sexless innkeeper is just the kind of thing you’d expect on a show like How I Met Your Mother. While you probably don’t have a clue as to how this person will stir the comedy up, I’m sure all sorts of crazy ideas are already running through your mind. Just hearing it actually sounds hilarious. But wouldn’t it be funnier if we knew the sexless innkeeper’s identity?

If you don’t want to be spoiled, stop reading and don’t go any further.

So who’s the sexless innkeeper? It’s none other than…Ted Mosby! When How I Met Your Mother returns this fall, we all know that he’s already landed an architectural teaching job at Columbia. He’s probably the same old Ted we’ve known for the past four seasons but to his students, he’s just the “Sexless Innkeeper.”

We’ll learn more about this when a batch of girls comes to his apartment and immediately fall asleep, according to Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello. Later, Ted is bummed when he realizes that he is a “Sexless Innkeeper” whose “dates” are only interested in a comfy place to crash.

Sounds funny? That’s not all you can expect from How I Met Your Mother‘s fourth episode this season. We’ll also see Marshall and Lily, seeing that they’re not the only couple in the group anymore, wanting to hook up with Barney and Robin for some fun double-dating. However, their desperation and enthusiasm eventually becomes a huge turn-off.  

How I Met Your Mother kicks off its fifth season on Monday, September 21 at 8pm on CBS, serving as lead-in to new comedy, Accidentally on Purpose, which airs at 8:30pm.
