    This episode was a whirlwind, but it was well-written, included everyone and got us closer to the mother. It was a really, really good episode! I love that the final slap finally came up, that Lily and Marshall can still pause regardless of how terrible the argument is to remind each other they love each other and that the bottle of Glenn McKenna will never survive with these guys. Can't wait for more. Also, Marshall's finally there!moreless

    best mid season finale ever. Darren is such a creep, I'm glad the gang is finally reunited. Ted and Barney were amazing this episode. And the last slap is coming...
  • was a while since seeing an episode this good!

    omg this was seriously one of the best mid seasons finale!



    so many feelings in one episode! from the start this episode got better and better and the mother had a lot to do with it! with every episode she is in the season she brings so much light into this show! you just really get to know her and see why she is the perfect girl.



    the devil guy darren from the band started lots of wars in the episode between lily and robin and ted and barney. the fight of barney and ted left me hanging when barney thinks he isn't a good/best friend of ted's. so when the two hug my feelings explode!



    and it was great to see robin helping lily with marshall taking the judgeship. using her ''marshall'' pillow as a distraction and an object to focur her hate was brilliant (cuz sometimes I do that too, hit on things when I'm angry as hell). but marshall seeing that really made me speechless and tear up, especially when lily stopped when she heard him calling her and then turned around facing him with tears in her eyes just saying ''pause?''. this moment right there brought I think not just me but everyone who has seen this show from the beginning to season 1 when they had their big fight. so I am incredibly nervous to see what will happen next with marshall and lily.



    so now to the just can say that I LOVED her in this episode!!! as clich as it might be being her that took marshall and marvin to the farhamptons, the conversation between her and marshall was great! the two of them seem really similar to each other and marshall encouraging her to stand up and face her enemy was 'the moment' for me.



    let's get to the far end of the episode: the mother trying to find the strengh to tell darren to leave her band alone, she left it be. because she thought that karma wouldn't do anything for him. so the moment when darran ran into ted (who was pouring the 600$ worth scotch into glasses for everyone), he spilled the scoth and that's when ted got mad and punched the guy! so darren walking into the bar and yelling at the mother that the best man just hit him was the perfect turnaround. she therefor said to the bartender to give ted the best double of scotch they had. so that is how we know how ted got the bandage!!!



    himym really did a great job in this episode.. the didn't just clear some things out but they actually managed to put sentences in the episode that the group already used in previous episodes like ted saying to barney he would be too liberal with the sentence 'that's the dream' or lily saying 'pause' or marshall's song. all in all for ME this episode was a success and I am really looking forward to see and to find out what will happen next!



    but first we have to wait 'til the new year to get any new episodes!



    *I really hope I didn't forget anything*



    OH WAIT I KNOW: THE END!

    marshall apologising to barney for not being at his rehearsal dinner and that he got a present for him but he was going to wait until after the wedding to give it to him. but how we all know barney he just gotzzz to know! so marshal went for the SLAP!!!! - TO BE CONTINUED...

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Marshall is about to slap Barney, Barney says, "Oh, God, it's the fourth slap! Why do I have to be so obnoxious?" Actually, this slap would be the seventh slap; Marshall administered the fourth slap in the episode "Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap." In the episode "Disaster Averted," Marshall and Lily renegotiated the Slap Bet conditions, adding 3 additional slaps (giving Marshall 8 in total) in exchange for allowing Barney to remove The Ducky Tie before he met his girlfriend's parents; Marshall immediately used two, and Lily announced, "Two slaps remaining." To date, Marshall has not used any more slaps, so he still has two left and this one would be the seventh, not fourth.
