Britney Spears Returns
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Britney Spears is back as Abbie, Stellas receptionist who has a crush on Ted.

Plot In A Paragraph: Since Marshall and Lilly cannot afford the cost to level the floors of their new place, Marshall proposes its time to start selling some of Lilly's designer clothes. Lilly instead wants to make the money selling her paintings. Ted tries to prove he can pull off a pair of red cowboy boots. Meanwhile Barney finally meets the girl that has been ruining his chance with women, and it's Abbie (Britney Spears) and sets about using her to show Ted how lame he is.

Barney and Abbie did make an amusing double act, and despite how good she was in the previous episode, its surprising to see her back.
