Meanwhile, Robin thinks she got a job as a national anchor and quits her crappy Metro News job. However, when she finds out it was just an interview amongst 20 other people and she doesn't get her job back, she has to make it back to Metro News from Jersey... in only 30 minutes! However, at the end of the episode we get a bomb dropped on us... Robin is moving to Japan.
