    Yes she is back. And that's not the biggest part of this episode. More on that later. Robin's old boyfriend comes back and you only find out that he has aged quite a bit, kind of like Bill from King of the Hill. James Van Deer Beek does a great job of playing Robin's old flame. He does it in a way that is not overly douchey. It's funny how Robin doesn't see the flaws in Simon while her friends do. It kind of reminds me of earlier episode when Ted met Blah Blah. The situation with Robin and Simon was the start of something you would later see in the series. When Simon announces that he was in another video with Robin, Barney's reaction was great. I was also excited.

    Barney fails to find the video of Robin Sparkle's Sandcastles in the Sand to only find out that Robin actually has it. If the episode actually ended on her video it would good enough but to see what happened was something you didn't expect but something that if you watched the episodes closely it was slowly built up.
