    How I Met Your Mother "Splitsville" Review: Bait and Switch

    If I were Lily Aldrin, I would be glaring at this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother and uttering, "You sonofabeetch."

  • Episode Summary

    Barney helps Robin break up with Nick when she is hesitant to do so herself. Ted and Marshall play basketball, and Lily and Marshall desperately look for some time alone.

    Who was the Episode MVP ?

    • Good storyline, but not many laughs.

      9.0
      There was good storyline development in this episode, that's for sure! But my main negative was that I didn't see too many funny scenes and have great laughs. Aside from a few funny moments with Ted's basketball team and the whole Robin and Patrice concept, there was little to make me laugh.



      I ddid however love the concept of the Splitsville restauranct! That was great and creative! And the storyline development compensated fro the slight lack of laughs to create an overall good episode. Definitely better than the last one!moreless
    • Finally!!

      I've been waiting for the relationship between Barney and Robin to progress. I hope they keep up with it! We know she is the bride so now I want to see how they act while they are in a relationship (beside the train wreck we saw earlier)
    • Finally a good episode !

      9.5
      Damn, it took long but finally a really funny episode ! The first 5 episodes were boring but the 6th episode was really funny and I hope that HIMYM is now back on tracks !



      What's going to happen between Robin & Barney now ?
    • Best Restaurant

      9.5
      This was a full episode with what felt like equal appearances from everyone in the main cast - including the overarching plot. It was great to see us getting back to where this season needs to end up as well as working through the relationships. It was a sweet episode with the right amount of blackmail, heartache and advice that powers what I've come to consider good HIMYM.



      Now that the autumn of breakups is over, hopefully we'll see more of the mother and more of the cast interaction that's been missing for a lot of this season so far. But, to be fair, I suppose a lot of these changes have been the fault of the baby, since (as Lily and Marshall like to remind Ted) having a baby changes everything.



      Also, I really want a dessert restaurant called Splitsville now.moreless
    • Finally!

      9.0
      It took 5 episodes, but it finally feels like HIMYM is getting back on track! "Splitsville" was hilarious and brought back the things we know and love, like Robin dating really dumb guys. It was almost sad to see Nick leave after he delivered so many good lines!



      but more importantly, Team Robney (Brobin??) is a go!!!



      Now if Ted would just meet the mother sometime this season...
