    Season 3 Finale and a surprise (spoilers)

    By Lostindharma, Nov 11, 2012

    This show deals a lot with destiny, fate, and this one a miracle. More on that later.

    The start of the episode before the song was of the longest up to this point. I like when you see Ted in the taxi and you see him look, it takes you to a different story. I really liked the callback to previous Barney rule. (Never make plans with someone you would date longer then the actual realtionship) Great showing of the car accident (and a nice song) When you see what actually happens to Ted, you either loved it hated it. I loved it because had he been hurt the storyline would've advanced as far as it did. There was another reason I liked it, More on that later. Despite their fight, it was sweet of Barney to literally race to see Ted. The shot of him getting hit by the bus was a little over the line in believability of reality even in TV. That's one of the few drawbacks to this episode. The miracle stories told by Marshall were all funny. My favorite was him in Amsterdam. You get to see (at least I think) of why Robing is the way she is with her dog.

    There was a misunderstanding with Ted and Stella when he thought the realtionship was over when Stella didn't. Ted realizes he makes a mistake and realizes that he really loves her and tries to make for deceiving her by getting her a stuffed toy and proposing to her. And what makes this episode great was that the proposal was not even the biggest surprise.

    When Lilly and Marshall asked Barney what was flashing before his eyes and smiles at Robin, that was a great surprise. This was something you didn't expect if you are watching this for the first time but something that was very subtly implanted earlier in the series. Remember when Barney said to Robin when she was his wing man and they went back to her apartment.

    The biggest reason why this episode was great was that if it wasn't for the accident it wasn't for the accident, Ted may not have met the mother.moreless

    Funniest single scene of the entire series!

    By JoshPratt, Sep 11, 2011

    This is a great episode for the single fact that it has the single funniest scene of the entire series. In the miracle flash back where they are tossing pencils into the ceiling tiles, they slam down a shot of something, and one of the pencils falls from the ceiling, bounces off the table and lodges straight into Barney's nose. The reaction of Barney, Ted, and Marshall is what make it a golden moment. Comic Genius!! "Am I Alive?", I nearly wet myself and I pride myself on my bladder control. The whole episode was funny, and important to the progression of the story, but this one scene earns my seal of approval.moreless

    Ted gets in a car accident.

    By Jon_MW_14, Aug 22, 2011

    "Miracles" is an awesome season 3 finale for How I Met Your Mother. Ted getting into a car accident was an intense way to start this episode. I'm glad he was alright. I loved how the whole gang showed up. I love how Barney rushes to the hospital even though he and Ted aren't friends anymore. It was sad how he got into an accident and ended up in the hospital. I love how Barney and Ted became friends again. I love how Robin doesn't believe in miracles. It was heartbreaking when she shared the story of her dog dying and the side effect of the operation was the dog turned into a turtle. The ending was shocking with Ted asking Stella to marry him. I give this episode a 10/10.moreless

    Ted and Barney get in accidents.

    By thefanof, Oct 22, 2010

    Brutal. Absolutely brutal. This episode was terrible. There's no other way to describe it. There was not a single funny line said. I think I laughed once, when Marshall said, "Miracle," but that's it. Barney being in a full-body cast was something straight out of a terrible episode of a 90's sitcom. How I Met Your Mother has gone so far downhill it is embarrassing. Now they take it upon themselves to end every episode with a "cliffhanger". The problem is that nobody cares what happens next. Nobody cared when Robin kissed Barney, because we knew it wouldn't lead to anything. Nobody cares now that Ted proposed to Stella, because they're gonna wait until the end of next season to have them actually get married.



    Simply pathetic.moreless

    Wonderful episode.

    By Hornets3, Aug 18, 2009

    Ted is in a car accident that prompts Marshall to talk about miracles. Everyone flashbacks to prior moments in their lives. This episode was just so great and funny its impossible not to love it. Plus this left room for a lot of other stories in the 4th season which made me happy. For example, the way Barney looked at Robin made me think that Barney might have actually found love. The only thing that made me mad about this episode is the cliff hanger ending. That really is like a kick in the teeth to the viewer, but its all good. This was a wonderful episode; watch it!moreless

    How I met double cliffhangers.

    By DygitalNinja, Sep 16, 2008

    I'll let you in on a little secret. I really don't care who the mother is. I'm about 99% sure its not Stella or Robin...and 100% sure the writers are just stalling until the end of the series to do more than tease that plot point.But this isn't Lost or X-files. I could give a crap about the plot. I just want it too be funny. The season finale brought the funny AND made be care a little more about the plot, I have to give that thumbs up. It started out great with Ted telling the group about how Stella asking him to be her date to her siblings wedding led him into one of his contrived 'now i have to break up with her" things (complete with a hilarious non sequitor gag about Barney's Date-time continuim rule)



    After that some plot happens, Barney and Ted get into car accidents and implausiably survive,which on the plot side makes them reevalute their feelings for Robin/Stella and on the funny side leads to some great non-sequirtos gags (how i met your mother is way too good at getting comic mileage out of making its 20 something starts act like children)



    but for the first time I found myself cliffhangered by this show, is Barney really going to try to date Robin? Will Stella say yes (I still say she's not the mother but I'll play along)...either way HIMYM is gonna find ways to make me laugh with this stuffmoreless

    really a dream sequence

    By mayanksolan, Aug 21, 2008

    really a heart touching episode..... cud watch it endlessly.... the whole 3 seasons we watched these friends taking crack at each other, making fun of themselves and making fools out of it. But it was the time when friends are needed and it was their true friendship which brought Marshall with guitar around his shoulders to the hospital.... and that soothing nice dream song from radiohead made me crazy for that song.... listening it a many times a day.... but the best part came when barney became desperate to meet Tedd .... at that moment nothing else mattered to him.... not even himself.... it was a dream episode....moreless

    Good way to end the season!

    By bexxta909, Jul 27, 2008

    Although it was not as funny as some of the episodes in this season or series it did have it's moments, one of them being Barney running to see Ted in hospital after his car accident, and of course Ted's 'Break Up' with Stella was rather funny. Although there was not much of Lily or Marshall which I found a bit disappointing it is certainly worth your time to sit down and watch this season finale. This was a decent way to end the third season, and I am definately looking forward to see how the fourth season starts off with the characters.moreless
