"The Rough Patch" is a good How I Met Your Mother episode. I actually enjoy how Barney and Robin became the most depressing couple on this show. I love how Barney gained so much weight and Robin looks so old. I love how they decide to try and break up Robin and Barney and they completely fail at it. I love how looking at their reflection in the mirror and seeing how bad they looked was the reason they broke up. The only thing I didn't like about this episode was I wish it happened later in the season. I felt like they needed to be a couple longer. I give this episode a 8/10.
