I thought it was great. Loved seeing Lip go all Real Genius and build that laser to beat those college boys at their own game. I wonder if this "muling" will be a new source of income for Frank. You know one of the balloons will go missing and he'll blow it eventually, no pun intended. How about Kevin getting all shredded in the off season? He and V were hilarious. I too am a Mandy fan and applaud her aversion for wearing pants. Estefania's father taking out Marco was as shocking a scene I've witnessed on the show. Steve went right home to find comfort in taking care of Fiona and the family.

I only caught the tail end of the episode but I rewound multiple times, the last scene where Nick took a big pull off the absinthe bottle and yelled "That was a mistake WOO, I am gonna poop weird tonight!"
@Dale very interesting point about the woman giving Ted the big eye at the party. I did not notice but am going to go back and check it out. I'll make a meme of it and post to our tumblr site so be sure to check for it.
@joyeful MR. BELDING!!! Wow great catch. I did not recognize him. Wel done.
As for Margaret's baby @jayne that is a good question. I wonder if she could fake her interest in some make up sex with Nucky and claim the baby is his. all depends on how far along she is. As we've seen on the show the science and medicine behind childbirth are not widely discussed topics. I'm guessing Nucky could be fooled into thinking the baby is his especially if it is something he wants bad enough. He loves her children but I think he has always longed for a child of his own since he and his first wife lost theirs years ago. Remember back to season 1 and the pained look on Nucky's face when he stopped in front of the window where all the premature babies were being treated in incubators. We'll have to see of course. Very good question, thanks.
@Ashley R it was Masseria's men who killed Owen and I'm guessing the FBI agent too despite us not seeing his body up in NYC at the bath house. Gyp was busy down in Tabor Heights with his shipment coming in.
(previous comment cont.)between the cast. Look up the clip of the gang on the Megan Mullaly show where Segel and NPH sing the confrontation song from Les Miserables. They were a bunch of relative unknowns save NPH but you could see the energy they shared. I just think some of that spark is gone and it is showing this season at times. But as I have said before, while I may be critical at times (which comes with the job)I am not even close to giving up on my beloved show.
@hummelchen I am glad you liked the episode so much. I wish I could have said the same. I have often defended HIMYM when it has seemed to swing and miss and I always try to look for the positives in each episode. Just like Marshall's eyes were opened to his stamp tramp ways though, the comments from the good people like yourself who write in with their thoughts each week has made me realize that perhaps I have been wearing the rose colored lenses too much. I have loved this show since it's inception so maybe that is why I, like others, am now critical of its decline. The cast is widely popular now and involved in many outside projects. Like an athlete who spreads themselves thin with endorsement deal commitments, commercials and alternate careers (see Shaq's rap career) I think it is inevitable that their performance is going to suffer on some level. This is why we see SNL cast members often leave when they get involved in movies. Shows like HIMYM rely heavily on chemistry between the cast. Look up the clip of the gang on the Megan Mullaly show where Segel and NPH sing the confrontation song from Les Miserables. They were a bunch of relative unknowns save NPH but you could see the energy they shared. I just think some of that spark is gone and it is showing this season at times. But as I have said before, while I may be critical at times (which comes with the job)I am not even close to giving up on my beloved show.
WOW! I knew the overall opinion of this season has been low, but I was very surprised to see how negative the comments were. Maybe I was watching a different episode. Or maybe I had just had such a bad day capped off with waiting 4 hours in line for gas , that I was happy to be watching anything on TV. I have been very critical of the Eriksens this season, but I thought this week they finally gain resembled the couple we all have grown to love over the years. That paired with Barney coming unhinged and his exploits with Brover made for a pretty good episode in my book. Plus the added Brobin scenes. TY @joyeful for backing me on the best wingman ever comment. If I end up trashing next week's episode I'm sure you all will say I stink worse than "Dowisetrepla." I'll just have to wait and see I guess. Thanks for the comments though as always. I can understand your frustration but let's all see this through to the end. We've come this far.
@Tony I agree with your comment that Richard will become Tommy's guardian. I loved the scenes with the two of them last week. "I told you I have a sister?" "You need to fix your glasses." etc. I just posted a bunch of memes I made from this week's episode on out tumblr site. Check them out if you can. Its tumblr(dot)tvfanatic(dot)com
