Storyline

Buoyed by the success of an intervention concerning their friend Stuart's over-consumption of alcohol carried out by a large group of their friends, the gang decide to hold interventions for everything that bothers them about the others. So when Ted, Marshall and Lily are packing up the apartment to move on with their respective lives, Ted finds the intervention box with envelopes addressed to him. The others admit that they were going to hold an intervention when Ted first got engaged, believing he was rushing into things, but decided not to after they got to know Stella. As Ted makes them read their letters anyway, Ted comes to realize that they may be right, which in turn makes Marshall and Lily realize that moving to their new apartment does not feel right, and makes Robin realize that moving to Japan does not feel right.

A Classic Episode
22 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A classic episode of "How I Met Your Mother" Plot In A Paragraph: Ted, Robin, Marshall, and Lily all begin getting cold feet because of the up coming changes in all their lives, and Barney tries to prove to everyone that he can pick up a woman while posing as an 80-year-old man.

The interventions are all great, and Neil Patrick Harris once again knocks it out of the park as Barney. The old man routine was genius. It simply is comedy gold.

I love this show when it hits heights like this, all the cast are firmly settled in their roles and are now playing them to perfection.
