Lady in Red


For his friends, Ted is planning on cooking his first ever Thanksgiving dinner - featuring his own spin on a turducken - but it quickly promises to turn into a disaster for him primarily because of a visit by his, Marshall and Lily's college friend, Steve Henry aka "The Blitz". The nickname "The Blitz" was handed down through the ages at Wesleyan to the person who always missed seeing amazing occurrences once he left the room. Steve has been saddled with the nickname and the curse ever since their days at Wesleyan. But because Ted left MacLaren's early the initial night of the Blitz's visit, the curse and thus the nickname seems to have passed itself from Steve to Ted. What's even worse for Ted is that that night at MacLaren's, Lily, Marshall, Robin, Barney and Steve couldn't help but befriend an unexpected bar patron, Ted's arch nemesis Zoey, who ends up figuring prominently in the group's Thanksgiving festivities much to both Ted and Zoey's chagrin in more ways than one.

Some Fun To Be Had
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For some inexplicable reason, the TV channel I'm watching the reruns on, skipped the last episode.

Plot In A Paragaph: When Ted leaves the bar early to prepare a Thanksgiving feast for his friends, the gang winds up partying all night with his enemy Zoe and "The Blitz" an old friend from college who has bad luck (Every time he leaves somewhere, something awesome always happens) As a result, Ted becomes "The Blitz"

There is a lot of fun in this episode, especially the Blitz part. However Zoe keeps coming back, and the show is obviously leading towards her being a love interest for Ted. I didn't think I'd dislike a love interest for Ted, as much as I disliked Stella. But Zoe is ridiculously annoying.
