I was pretty skeptical about Katie Holmes coming on to How I Met Your Mother as a guest star — and was not sure how I felt about her taking on the iconic role of the Slutty Pumpkin. But behold the photo to your left, PopWatchers. As you might have guessed from the headline, I sort of love this picture of Ted and Her Sluttiness (<Can we please use this?) from the Oct. 31 episode.

I think it’s a combination of her Joey-esque haircut and her giant smile that won me over in this pic. Suddenly, I’m pretty excited about meeting the Slu…erm..Naomi.

What about you readers? Are you excited we’re about to meet this incredibly important person from HIMYM mythology? Do you predict it will be all you hoped it would be?
