Although she is up front about why she fears the dwarfs, she refuses to tell Ted and the others about why she won't go to the mall.

They even ask Lily to be the slap bet officiator, as long as she promises to be unbiased. Ted tries to find out Robin's secret, but she asks him to respect her privacy on this issue. When Ted does eventually pry it out of her, he wishes he didn't know as he doesn't know what to do with the information.

One Of The Best Episodes
27 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Robins secret hatred of the mall is revealed and when she won't say why it gets everyone interested. Ted is drove mad by his girlfriends secret and Marshall and Barney have a slap bet (With Lily being slap bet commissioner) over who is right. Marshall thinks she is hiding a secret marriage where she got married at a mall, whilst Barney naturally thinks a little darker and smuttier and thinks she is a porn star.

This is one of my favourite episodes Once again Neil Patrick Harris is central to the story and brings most of the laughs and Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel also excellent again too!! They are quickly becoming my favourites behind NPH.

Special mention may go to Cobie Smulders in this episode too.
