Storyline

Ted is going through his usual mourning process after his break-up with Robin. Barney encourages Ted to get out of mourning and become his "wing man" once again, but Ted isn't sure when he'll be ready to date. He decides the time has come when Robin, who went away to Argentina for her mourning phase, comes back to New York with a new boyfriend, an exotic Argentinean masseur named Gael. Ted wants to show Robin that she is not winning the break-up. So while going out with Barney to pick up women, Ted hooks up with Amy, a woman not generally Ted's type as she's a bit wild and lives on the edge. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily have a double date with Robin and Gael, but Marshall and Lily, as Ted's best friends, vow it's only so they can learn to hate Gael, which ends up being a difficult thing for them to do. As Gael may become a permanent fixture in their lives, Ted comes to the realization that he needs to have some closure to his and Robin's break-up. Written by Huggo

An OK Start To Season 3
9 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Enrique Iglesias and Mandy Moore guest star in the first episode of season 3 of "How I Met Your Mother" that picks up exactly where season 2 finished with Barney finishing the word Legendary Plot In A Paragraph: Despite Barney's best efforts Ted is not ready to move on from his split with Robin. That is until she returns from a holiday in Argentina with Gael (Enrique Iglesias) a handsome man who soon has Lily and Marshall under his spell too. Ted responds by going out with Barney and hooking up with a tattoo covered girl (Mandy Moore) who encourages to leave Barney and go get a tattoo with her.

It's an OK episode, helped by the guest stars, I'm surprised HIMYM has opened season 3 with two guest stars, but hey ho.
