An OK Episode
15 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There was a surprise revelation in this episode (At least to me) that Lily doesn't actually live with Marahall and Ted.

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily officially moves into Marshall and Ted's apartment. Bringing up the question of who will get the apartment after Marshall and Lily get married. Both Ted and Marshall love the place and Barney and Robin believe that Marshall and Lily will slowly edge him out. Meanwhile, Barney feels that he has wasted too much time on dates that he knew were going nowhere, so he decides to invent the "lemon law" and use it on his dates of giving the date five minutes before pulling the plug on it or not.

This is an OK episode, which "How I Met Your Mother" has had a few of, usually where Neil Patrick Harris is in the back ground.
