    **Spoiler Warning**


    This episode doesnt quite rank up to the last couple but considering the calibre of those shows im definately not complaining about that.

    The episode started great with the whole, being in a coffee shot is boring bit and it just got better from there. I just loved the whole Swarley plotline, with Ted and Robyn finding different ways to fit Barney\'s new nickname Swarley into conversations and situations each with hilarious results.

    The Lily and Marshal storyline was well done if not ever so slightly flat. Morena Baccarin did a good job as Marshal\'s brief new crazy eyed girl. Aly gives one of her best performances playing a ultra jealous Lily, her hunchbacked stalking and jealous diving across the couch scenes are an absolute riot.

    The episode is missing some great Barney lines but i actually like that because this proves they can create a great show without needing Neil to steal the show.

    There are flaws to this episode but none matter in the face of the last few minutes with Lily & Marshall getting back together again. Even with under 30 episodes of character development i already feel so much for the characters that i almost cried with joy when they kissed.

    This can only be good for the show and i cant wait until next week.
