  • Oh, Robin...

    Now that was a trainwreck.

    I loved all the individual plots going on, but I'm not entirely sure if I buy Barney's hesitation. It fits, but with how stalwart his character has been in his lechery, I'm just not quite sure I'm there yet. Robin's desperation is right on target, and her realization that what she's doing is a last-ditch effort is necessary. These two are going to be back together in two, three episodes tops.

    Now, we saw at the end that Ted's not only going to be with the mother but have their first child in only a "few If this is the last season, I think it's literally going to end with him meeting the mother for the first time. We're running out of episodes for anything else to happen. And I'm going to be severely disappointed if we don't get to know and love her before the series is done. Ted popping the question is the more logical place to end it if they're going that route.
