I could see why people didn't like this episode. But to me, it was amazing. I guess it was pretty lame the whole "Victoria or Robin" thing as we have established that we've probably ALL seen this exact same storyline in Friends when Ross had to pick between Emily and Rachel. But it was different here.
Ted choosing Robin was a sweet thing because no matter what, she is always more than just a friend to him. I love Robin and Barney together but sometimes I love watching episodes like this where a Ted/Robin possibility comes up.
And Victoria's line in the end ALWAYS sends a chill down my spine: "I really hope you get her [Robin] It was beautiful.
