Another hilarious episode of How I Met Your Mother. This episode concentrated on Lilly moving in and Ted getting territorial of his own apartment when he feels like her and Marshall are incrementally pushing him out of the picture. It did a great job of setting up the whole Shockie thing, showing it was an important antique in their apartment, and how easily Marshall was willing to get rid of it in favor of Lilly's new coffee machine. Although the irony is that it's actually more common sense given that Shockie created inferior coffee while causing harm to all those that came in touch with it.
This eventually led to the bizarre sword fight between Marshall and Ted that lasted for a lot longer than it should have. What was awesome about this was that the flashback led to a setup of the table getting broken because of a screw that was not properly used five years prior, and then played into effect just mere moments later when Marshall ends up stabbing Lilly.
The best thing about the episode however was that it did a great job of intertwining the two story lines. The other being Barney thinking he created a new fool proof way of dating that'll determine if a couple are meant to be in under five minutes. This leads to Robin thinking how insensitive his plan was, which led to her getting into a date with a nerd that she didn't want to be in, but didn't want to be proven wrong.
And then to throw in another set up into the loop was Barney's whole getting out of a date by a phone call through Ted. This was hilarious because Robin actually had to go to the hospital because Lilly really did get stabbed.
And then it was brought in full circle when the cause of Lilly moving in, her place turning into a Chinese restaurant, they all end up eating dinner there. Just brilliant writing, absolutely brilliant.
