  • Great on its own, but in context...

    It's difficult to see Ted doing what he does in this episode, but then I suppose he's always thrown caution to the wind and made mistakes in the name of love. On its own, this is a great episode but it is spoiled by knowing the bigger picture. Knowing that Ted and Victoria will break up in 4 episodes, for reasons almost completely unrelated to the big speech that Klaus gives at the end (which is the highlight of the episode for me, only just beating Barney's fantastic 52 second summation) really cheapens the impact of it. It just feels like setting up all these relationships, just to knock them down in less than half a dozen episodes feels so contrived and they needed maybe half a season to extend them out. However, that said, on its own, this is one of the highlights of an otherwise fairly mediocre 8th season.
