With her sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" in its final season, fans have their fingers crossed that Cobie Smulders will be airlifted right out of that show's nonstop wedding-weekend plot and right onto a Helicarrier -- if and when "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." comes back for season two. But why wait until season two? The Marvel show saw a ratings jump for the "Thor"-tangential tie-in it did in November, so it stands to reason they'll try that trick again. There's a little movie called "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" coming out just a few weeks before the show's season finale. Smulders could easily bridge the gap between the show and the S.H.I.E.L.D.-ful movie.
