  • Slightly disappointed...

    Considering last week's BIG cliffhanger, this episode felt like a slight letdown. The Barney/Ted storyline was so rushed and it felt annoying. I don't like how Ted didn't mention Chicago to Barney. It really felt like the moment!

    Lilly and Robin's storyline was even worse, unfortunately. The only reason I kept watching is because, for some weird reason, when Lilly was trying to set Robin up with other women, I had a weird feeling one of those women would be the Mother and Future Ted will say "And kids, that's how your aunt Robin met your Mother. Unfortunately, that didn't happen either.

    This episode, and last week's, were not as good as the hour-long season 9 premiere. Maybe it's the lack of any Mother-related storylines, or the lack of the Mother herself. Hoping the show gets better. It's only got a few more episodes left after all...
