The proposal was sweet and didn't seem at all out of place with Barney narrating, but what really brought it home was Barney openly allowing for his plan to fail if Ted wasn't ready to let go of Robin and if Robin said no. Though it was a crazy plan, veiled by "The Playbook" medium was the fact that every step in the plan required Barney to go out of his previous "bro" comfort zone. Whether it was opening himself up to rejection, confessing his love, burning The Playbook, et al, Barney was exposed to potential failure. So Ted's speech about "making an ass of yourself" ended up being as much for Barney as it was for Robin (and for himself). Plus, any knot in your stomach of guilt over Patrice being hurt was gone when it was explained that she was in on the plan from the start.


Brilliant resolution, and it was SO Barney-ish!


@katrina i agree i am not gonna lie tears fell at it! it was so barney that it was really th only way i could accept how they used quinn to drop her.


I thought this episode was one of the best ones this season. It felt complete and well thought out.

1. I'm SO GLAD Patrice wasn't just an innocent bystander. I hated the fact that she was just a stand in, so I felt much better knowing that she was on the inside. Awesome Patrice!!

2. I'm SO GLAD Robin got mad to start with. Because, I mean, if this were anyone other than Barney Stinson, that level of manipulation should make her run for the hills.

3. I'm SO GLAD Ted told Robin. I was really not wanting to go back the whole Ted/Robin route. Now, can we find Ted someone nice, please?

4. Totally agree with the Marshall/Lily overacting. That scene where they sang the lullabye into the phone at the party actually made me groan.

5. Ranjit is awesome LOL


my show is back!!
im in tears. Robin was stunning in this episode! i loved her dress!!


Well, I didn't like the first half of this secon installment tonight. I thought it was going kind of slow and when the they packed out Ted's feelings for Robin I just thought - NOT AGAIN! I thought we were done with that once and for all. But I think they did a nice job putting all pieces together at the end of the episode. So tonight partially managed to make up for the very unsatisfying lackluster rest of this season. I am happy that Barney and Robin are back together, I just hope they won't split them apart again, that would be really lame.




Can't wait for next year !!


I loved it. This episode more than made up for the lamer ones this season - as well as the overacting by Lilly and Marshall as you mentioned.

Barney's a class act isn't he? He even made sure his plan incorporated a fail-safe to ensure his best friend was on board with it all. Makes me wonder if we'll see Ted get the jinx-punishment that's coming to him though. :)


This episode was amazing, parts one and two. Barney proposal was the best thing ever and the mention of Ted letting go of Robin making him the Best Bro Ever. The smirk on Barneys face knowing that she would say yes to the proposal.
