Storyline

Ted runs into his ex-fiancée Stella and her husband Tony seven months after she left him at the altar. Instead of acting angry toward them, Ted is cordial, trying to prove that he is over Stella, which he truly does believe. Despite Ted's more than pleasant demeanor toward them, Tony has it in his mind that he has to make amends to Ted for stealing his fiancée since Ted, in his mind, looked so sad. After wealthy Tony makes some grand gestures to atone all which end up falling flat, Ted finally tells Tony how he really feels. Ted's comments lead to an unexpected outcome, which brings Stella running back to Ted. Ted, who really wants to be in love, has to decide what to do about Tony and Stella. Meanwhile, Barney has just received a speeding ticket. When he learns that all his friends have talked their way out of speeding tickets before, Barney bets them that he can as well. So Barney goes on a speeding mission, which too has an unexpected consequence. Written by Huggo

A So So Episode
8 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the cliffhanger ending of the last episode, we see how Ted reacts to seeing Stella. Is she the mother of his kids as the last episode hinted at??

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted runs into his ex-fiancée Stella and her husband Tony seven months after she left him at the altar. Instead of acting angry toward them, Ted is polite and kind, trying to prove that he is over Stella. Despite this, Tony has it in his mind that he has to make amends to Ted for stealing his fiancée. Meanwhile, Barney has just received a speeding ticket. When he learns that all his friends have talked their way out of speeding tickets before, Barney "The Master Of Manipulation" had only one thing to do... Accept the challenge (even though nobody actually challenged him) that he can as well. So Barney goes on a speeding mission, which has unexpected consequences.

Whilst the episode is bogged down by the Ted storyline, the Barney one is a lot of fun, and raises this episode to a higher level.
