The last episode of 2012 showed us that the series is ready to take action... and so is Barney Stinson.
Almost everyone on Happy Endings is in a relationship right now, despite their best efforts to screw things up.
Some of HIMYM's best episodes have dealt in misdirection, and I have a hunch that "The Over-Correction" was one such episode.
"Lobster Crawl" not only pushed the series’ story ahead, it also managed to right a few of this season's wrongs.
"Twelve Horny Women" was an enjoyable episode with the HIMYM gang, calling back to the days when these guys were still fun to hang out with.
"More Like Stanksgiving" was an excellent Happy Endings episode in general, and I loved how the actual holiday of Thanksgiving was a part of the episode without the entire thing coming off like an after-school special.
"The Stamp Tramp" wasted one of the precious few episodes of HIMYM that we have left, failing to advance any plots, develop any characters, or answer any questions.
Bringing Dave and Alex back together was a risky move for a show whose very existence was based on the idea that Alex left Dave at the altar for a guy on rollerblades; do you like seeing them as a couple?
If I were Lily Aldrin, I would be glaring at this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother and uttering, "You sonofabeetch."
