So Barney brings in his gay black single brother James Stinson to act as his wingman as they prowl the bars for hook-ups. Besides being black and gay, James is like Barney in most other respects: confident, well dressed, always out to get laid, and always watching out for his wingman. James' arrival in town convinces the four that perhaps they should go out to a bar with James and Barney for the evening. But as Ted, Robin, Marshall and Lily watch James in action, they can't help but think that there is something strange about his behavior, almost like he's part of a couple and would rather be nesting at home with his significant other, much like the four of them wish they were doing. Indeed, they all learn that James is engaged to get married to a man named Tom. An incredulous Barney is angry as he believes this move ... Written by Huggo
