Storyline

Barney is going on his second date with Nora. He still denies that it means anything. But when Nora tells him up front that she only wants to date men that have the potential of being husband material, Barney does indeed tell her that he too is looking for a serious relationship. Does he mean it or is it all an act just to get her into bed? Barney himself may not even be sure, Lily is pretty sure she knows what he's really feeling for Nora, but only Barney's cardiologist may be able to tell for sure. Meanwhile, Robin is thinking about getting a dog again. Marshall tells her that her want for a dog is to replace the man missing from her life and that she really should go out and look for her next relationship. She follows Marshall's advice and picks up a guy she meets nicknamed Scooby, a fellow Canadian. But in Scooby, Robin may have gotten her original wish. Written by Huggo

Favourite Episode Of The Season
29 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson as How I Met Your Mother. With strong support from Alyson Hannigan he is both hilarious and touching, and in the last scene, heartbreakingly sad.

Plot In A Paragraph: Following on from Marshall's Dad dying of a heart attack, all the gang get their hearts checked. Barney is going on his second date with Nora. When Nora tells him up front that she is looking for a serious relationship, Barney tells her that he too is looking for a serious relationship. Does he mean it or is it all an act just to get her into bed? Barney himself may not even be sure, Lily is pretty sure she knows what he's really feeling for Nora. Meanwhile, Robin is thinking about getting a dog again.

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent. I could go on and on about the brilliance of this episode, and in particular Neil Patrick Harris but I won't bore you with it. Nazanin Boniadi returns as Nora, which delighted me (even more than the fact that Zoe wasn't in this episode) as I really like her character. Sadly I think this may also be the last time we see her.

Favourite episode of the season.
