  • The gang realize they aren't where they thought they'd be three years prior.

    It starts with Star Wars in 2000. Not only do Ted and Marshall make a pact to watch the entire series of films once every three years, they, along with Barney, imagine their lives then. Marshall wants to be married and have Lily expecting by 2003 (when the sitcom hasn't even started yet) but that is obviously a dream as they didn't get married until 2007 and are just now having their first kid. Even though Marshall doesn't have his desired mustache either, he's coming further along than Ted, who keeps dreaming he'll have found his soul mate by the next Star Wars night. However, he doesn't. Meanwhile, Barney keeps envisioning himself with another hot girl and letting her through the door saying "You'll be seeing a lot more of ________" only for him to never call her again. However, the episode takes a nice turn, especially for Barney, when he tells the guys they'll be seeing a lot more of Quinn and this time he means it. However, Ted's still stressing about his future. In 2015, he depressingly sees himself losing hair and still single. But if it wasn't guaranteed the show would end after eight years, it was now. The end of the episode shows actual 2015 Ted and he is holding his newborn baby who is the daughter. Obviously, no mother is shown but it was a heartwarming scene and nice to see. Like everyone else, I can't wait to see the mother is, especially after this very nicely put-together episode.
