Storyline

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.

Trivia

The method by which the curse of the 'Blitz' is passed from one person to another (a trail of mist going to and from the mouth) is a visual in-joke to the Buffy episode Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Hush (1999) were people magically lose their voices in an identical manner. In that episode of Buffy, the villains were called the Gentlemen, which is a catch phrase in this episode of HIMYM. See more »
