I kinda felt sucker punched by the ending of this episode. The story was well told, and everyone had their A game on with the acting. But the frame wasn't necessary...they could have told the story just as well (probably even better) without Robin talking to her imaginary kids.
Ina Hammett what was with the storm trooper? I missed it.
you guys you rock the world thanks to rodin
Great episode? I don't think so. This show is supposed to be funny but like shows before it, it's begun to take itself way too seriously. Why these huge depressing stories and arcs in the last 2 seasons? What's the point? The writers should concentrate on us laughing as opposed to seemingly getting us to "emotionally connect" with the characters. Get Ted in relationships and why they don;t work, get Barney back to doing what Barney does best, Marshall and Lilly have fortunately remained pretty stable in their characters fortunately ... as for Robin, she's always been off and on in HIMYM ... overall a great fun character tho and she works off Ted well ... keep her smiling and happy please. Why is it that friends shows (except Seinfeld) always go the way of drama instead of sticking with comedy?
@ Chris: Yeah youre right about that, but i mean she could say she had a normal appointment - like you have every year ;) I just think its a little bit weird that she doesnt even think about Kevin.
And i also hoped that Barney goes to Robin and asks if she is alright, but he didnt. And robin doesnt seem like she has massive feelings for barney anymore - so it doesnt look too good for those 2
What i really love about HIMYM is the drama every now and then. Those are normal people and shit happens in life.. I love it, its sad but good. I hate those normal comedy shows where nothing bad happens.. thats like real life, and thats why i cried with robin ;) ah but i think she will be fine. She never wanted kids and many women dont have kids...
I loved the episode! I've been pretty much disappointed with the last season and a half (not because they haven't talked about the mother yet, but because the depth of the writing - with the exception of Marshall's dad's death last season, characterization, and emotional impact have gone downhill). This episode was so sad, but had hit all of HIMYM's storytelling strengths. I cried at the end when Ted set up those Christmas lights for her.
Great episode. If this were any other comedy, or if this episode happened a year or two ago (before marshall's dad died). I would assume that the show would pull some "Baby Mama"-esque hijinks and Robin would miraculously be pregnant in the finale. But now id probably guess that she is either going to adopt or really and truly come to terms with the thought of never being pregnant and being ok with it (not that quick 5 min rationalization she did in the park, but something deeper over the course of a few episode)
amazing episode! did you notice the stormtrooper at the end of the scene?...
I am so sad about the ending, I really want Robin to be happy , and the prospect of her having kids was taken from us. Also, I don't think they want Robin and Barney ending up together which hurts too.
Tamara fair pount about Kevin, but I don't think Robin could or would have talked to him about it because she might have had to explain why she was at the doctor to begin with which was of course was because she thought she was preggers. Since they haven't had sex yet that would let the cat our of the bag about her one night stand with Barney. Im sure she could have worked around the truth but Kevin as we know is pretty perceptive by trade.
I still think Robin is the bride. While Barney does want children---he obviously figured out he doesn't want them now (insane dwayne). His bother adopted, lilly could carry the baby (w/ barney's sperm---hilarious, etc etc. The main reason I think she is the bride is b/c in the first ep of this season lilly comes in and says "ted, the bride wants to see you" and robin always said ted would be her bestman (never said he was barney's best man..just at the wedding of a best friend)---why would some new chick they fling onto the show in January, want ted?!
I cried a lot with this episode... And i still want to Barney and Robin end up together
I loved this episode and I think that robin and Barney will end up together even thought she can't have kids.
I felt "rickrolled" too. But I couldn't be too mad. It was a very moving episode, and you're right. Colbie Smulder's was just great. Still, I really thought the show was revealing something pretty wonderful, and I hated having that taken away from me. Funny how fiction can affect us.
What if Robin is actually a lesbian and that's why she is reluctant to open up to people so she doesn't end up with Barney?
With Barney and Robin, it's not just the pregnancy thing, it's the way she reneged on their agreement to break up with Nora and Kevin, and the fact that we know she's going to become a globe-trotting journalist and be living all over the world. I think this sets up the last half of the season to be where we, as viewers, come to realize along with the characters that Barney and Robin are not meant for each other.
It was so sad when ted showed robin the baby canada clothes
first of all, i think all that robin and kids talking stuff is in fact robin narrating this episode, it's not necessarily from future. secondly, when i think about the "pole vaulting" business, at first i thought it was clearly a reference to robin never becoming a mother but then, why would writers make such a not-so-funny reference and add a detail to the whole plot line? i think they just play with words to lead the audience into believing she will not have children but at the end, ted will just say "she really hasn't become a pole vaulter, she is a successful journalist". so it still leaves an open storyline for kids.
btw, barney may not get married to robin the first time, but they will def end up together from tiny clues from the last few episodes..
yeah but Barney wants to have kids, and if robin really cant have kids, it maybe means they wont be together. hmm or they will? But the thing is im not a 100% sure if she really wont have kids, the thing is i want everyone to end up with kids and marriage, but thats not everyones life.. i always wanted robin and barney - but now i think: it would be ok if not...
what i thought was really bad: Robin thinks she cant tell her friends about that and when the docter says do u have someone to talk to, she NEVER thought about Kevin??? If that happens to me, i would ring my boyfriend. She didnt even think about him? come on - she cant really like him that much!!!
this was an awesome show but always soo sad. Ted was awesome in the end.
And i cant believe i have to wait for such a long time for the next ep.
This episode was a masterpiece. It had every single thing = good humour (i was giggling as crazy in some parts), emotions, unpredictable ending and character development. It was written amazingly, im just upset about the ending though. But i have faith in HIMYM writers. But i really want Robin to be with Barney and they have biological kids together. it was so sweet when she was talking to her "imaginary" kids with Barney. Ted is so sweet as BBF. And im glad between Ted and Robin there is just a pure, strong, great friendship. WHEN IS THE NEXT EPISODE???!!!
What a great episode
a wonderful episode! HIMYM even how funny it is it's a show about love and emotions!
I loved the opening scene! Robin and barney have some amazing connections! and it's such a shame she isn't pregnant now! The over reaction of her friends A MASTER PIECE OF HUMOR! So Robin wants the she never can have really predictable! She always played the girl which doesn't want anything stable in her live! and she changed a lot since she and ted were in a relationship!
Marshal and the Junky child LOL!
Ted is an amazing BFF! And I think that there maybe is a chance Robin will get pregnant,yes he said she will never be a "poulsomething something", cause I don't think she said anything about her not being able to have children, just because she is robin! And she was talking to her imaginary children in the present and not in the past!3
I give this amazing episode 10 from 5 stars! :D
@morcades i thought so too.. maybe it was jusy the fact that wer she actually pregnant she knew barney was the father... or is it that she thinks she n barney are endgame..
still it was great episode.. like it or not the show always does good christmas episodes..
Isn´t it curious that Robin made up imaginary children but didn´t make up an imaginary father for them? She just thought about Barney being their father.
Why does everyone get all upset and make threats about "boycotting" the show when storylines don't go their way! They are probably the same people who moan that we haven't found out who the mother is yet, who will then in turn moan when we find out - Just enjoy the ride people!
I know it is sad, but I like this storyline. It is an interesting plotline and makes good tv.
Robin isn't obviously done travelling and progressing her career. This has been her "path" all the way through the series, even as early as series 1, so I am glad they are sticking to it. This doesn't mean her and Barney don't get together, but I don't want the writers to just write it in if it doesn't fit with their masterplan!
It was a very sad and well-made episode. I really thought that those kids were hers and Barney's.
That kid Scott, I wanted to punch him soooo bad, again, Marshall's nice nature. And Lily, I thought she would "smell the poop" but I guess pregnant Lily's got way too many hormones...
The ending was AWESOME ! The Xmas decorations with Highway to Hell, SCORE ! Even though I can't stand Ted coz he's so pathetic always looking for "the one", he's a real friend.
