Storyline

But after that, Lily catches Barney and Robin making out, the two who confess that they have been in a sexual relationship over the course of the summer, a fact they were hiding since they didn't want to make a big deal out of their undefined relationship. Lily thinks that Barney and Robin need to have "the talk" to define what they really mean to each other. They refuse since they are quite happy having sex and that's it.

Oh, boy...
23 September 2009 | by (Graz) – See all my reviews

Every experienced watcher of TV shows knows this: You love a show - and you're afraid of when it's going down... because, usually, they do. Sooner or later, they all do.

There are sooo few exceptions of this rule. And HIMYM seems like one of these.

Holding up the VERY HIGH standards since '05. (...and vomit-free since'93!)

What I'm trying to say: Great episode! Great one, and I'm sure there won't be any let-downs in recent future.

Legendary!
