Storyline

In the cold winter of 2006, Ted and Robin and Marshall and Lily feel more like staying in in their respective coupledoms than venturing out in the cold world outside. 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

Neil Patrick Harris Prominent Again In Seasons Best Episode So Far
3 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As is always the case with this show, when one of the best episodes comes along it features Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in a prominent role.

Plot In A Paragraph: Since Marshall lily are back together and Ted is loved up with the girl of his dreams Robin, it sadly leaves Barney as the odd one out as they would rather spend their time in the apartment together as couples than hang out with him. Luckily for Barney, his brother James is coming to New York to visit.

Wayne Brady is a lot of fun as James, but this episode is all about Neil Patrick Harris as Barney. He is brilliant.
