Storyline

For the two weeks following Stella dumping Ted immediately before their scheduled wedding, Ted outwardly is fine if not happy - too happy. Lily in particular thinks that Ted isn't dealing with what he is really feeling, while Barney thinks that Ted may indeed be happy in believing that Stella perhaps was not the one for him. Ted admits that part of the way he is dealing with the situation is to avoid running into Stella at all cost. But when the five go out for dinner and see Stella in the same restaurant, they go to extraordinary lengths to make sure she doesn't see them. While Ted contemplates if he should actually speak to her, the others discuss the people in their lives they most fear seeing and if they did what they would say to that person. Ted's thoughts of what he would say to her changes when he figures out her new circumstances. Written by Huggo

Trivia

The gang contemplate their past regrets while under a table in the restaurant 'Tapas'. When they exit, you can see that the show has again used the 'Nolita' restaurant from Kitchen Confidential (2005). See more »

Goofs

In all the close shots of the group under the table after the almonds were delivered, the almonds are visible. However, in the wide shot of the group getting out from under the table, where we can see under the table and the rest of the restaurant, there are no almonds on the floor. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: This is a map of Stella-free areas. The white areas are safe, the red ones are not, the blue ones are water.
Lily Aldrin: Ted, that's ridiculous.
Robin Scherbatsky: Well, water is blue.

Not A Very Good Episode
22 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not a very good episode from "How I Met Your Mother" this time out.

Plot In A Paragraph: The gang suspect Ted is not as over Stella as he says he is when he tries to hide from her when they discover that they are eating at the same restaurant.

Its interesting enough to watch, but I suspect that I will skip this episode if I ever see it on TV.

I liked the flashbacks scenes (well the full show is told in flashback, so a flashback in a flashback if you will) about how Barney, Lily and Robin would like to dodge certain people if they thought they'd see them again.
