Someone from Ted's past is making a return appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" soon.

It's not one of his exes, but it is someone who used to be involved with one of them: The Captain (Kyle MacLachlan), last seen in Season 6. Vulture reports he'll make his guest appearance on Feb. 18.

The circumstances of The Captain's return aren't being revealed, although it seems unlikely that Zoey (Jennifer Morrison), The Captain's wife-turned-Ted's (Josh Radnor) girlfriend, will return as well. Morrison is busy working on "Once Upon a Time," and most "Himym" fans would be happy not to see Zoey again.

February is shaping up to be something of a guest-star bonanza for "How I Met Your Mother." Monday's (Feb. 4) episode features another look at Robin Sparkles, Robin's (Cobie Smulders) pop-star alter ego, and a host of fellow Canadian guest stars, plus James Van Der Beek as Robin's former boyfriend Simon. »
