HIMYM, how I met your mother, ted mosby, the mother, the umbrella, the wedding -

  Taking us back through all the seasons that were How I Met Your Mother and stitching them together again in under thirty minutes—I have to say CBS, did a pretty good job. The Mother probably wins out as among my favorite characters in the whole series, surely. Besides her questionable faith in the wrong MacLaren’s, one can easily discern where she matches and deviates from Ted in her own HIMYM subgroup. Did anyone peg the redhead as her “Marshall” or her “Barney?” She left me undecided. As for the story, I did not expect it to read as sad...

barney stinson, HIMYM, how I met your mother, lily, marshall eriksen, penny and luke, robin, ted, the mother, the wedding -

The labor scenes helped me affirm what we already knew—that Ted found perfect, and they both found for keeps. The duo really seems to indicate they both accept each other’s faults. Meanwhile, Lily’s on her way out the door and into the passenger seat of a questionable future. Tell you what; the Farhampton Inn sure gets its share of business. Marked by their meeting, surely, Ted and his wife revisit the suite on the most esteemed—and unintentional—of days. The writers dotted the episode with flashbacks to the labor of their second son, Luke, first daughter Penny in tow on a...

barney stinson, himym, how I met your mother, marshall eriksen, the slap, the wedding -

Get it? Marshall? “Marshall Arts?”Okay. HIMYM once again prequels the slap of all slaps, with a very riveting slap-prenticeship story on behalf of Marshall Eriksen, who somehow trained in Shanghai (and Cleveland) for over a year in order to become a Slap master. Goes to show what happens when you take legendary consultation from an eight year old. Confused yet? Read on. Marshall, in an effort to scare Barney with his slapability, retold the story of how he gained his slapping prowess and superiority: by training under the tutelage of the three Slap Masters: Red Bird, White Flower, and…The Calligrapher....

barney stinson, himym, how I met your mother, robin scherbatsky, the wedding -

When has Barney EVER had an awful idea? Not this episode. Although for the first 26 minutes, I wasn’t convinced. After delineating his horrible surprise for Robin post-engagement (note: he never did make up that surprise), Barney and Robin both agree to not surprise each other again, in the interest of honesty and camaraderie. So, naturally, Barney comes to the conclusion that Robin must be planning a surprise laser tag rehearsal dinner, and spends the duration of the episode trying to crack Robin’s plan at every turn. Of course, he recounts the story while handcuffed to the bench of the...

barney stinson, challenge accepted, HIMYM, how I met your mother, robin scherbatsky, the wedding -

Time for another How I Met Your Mother bullet-point recap because, as I noted just a few times throughout the episode, this plot line seemed a LOT like the plot we know and love (love?) from Season 8. Except, this time, the other side of the spinning coin. It would have annoyed me, had it not been for Barney’s big ending. Barney accepts the challenge to console Robin from last week’s dilemma, where she discovers her mother won’t be attending the wedding. Lily then calls into question his challenge-faithfulness; he’s missed one challenge in his challenging career! How do they...
