Storyline

Despite Zoey still opposing the new GNB headquarters being built on the Arcadian Hotel site, Ted and Zoey's personal relationship is thriving. That issue is only one of the many disagreements in their life, which Ted likens to the two challenging each other mentally. On the other hand, he sees Marshall and Lily's relationship as being boring, as they agree on everything to the point of them almost melding into one person. Lily and Marshall, on the other hand, see their relationship as being supportive, the way that relationships should be, whereas they see Ted and Zoey's relationship as being too much work to the point of being mentally exhausting. But Marshall quitting his job at GNB to work in a non-paying volunteer position at the NRDC and Zoey managing to get the Landmark Preservation Society to agree to a hearing over the GNB project may change everything on both sides. Meanwhile, Barney seems to be taking Marshall leaving GNB the hardest. He admits to Robin that his anger ... Written by Huggo

Another Quality Episodr
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 gives us another quality episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: Despite Zoey still opposing the new GNB headquarters being built on the Arcadian Hotel site, Ted and Zoey's personal relationship is going well. Meanwhile Marshall quits his job at GNB to work in a non-paying volunteer position at the NRDC and Zoey managing to get the Landmark Preservation Society to agree to a hearing over the GNB project may change everything on both sides. In the background, Barney seems to be taking Marshall leaving GNB the hardest.

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. At least it appears that Zoe is not the children's mother, so hopefully she will be leaving soon. Behind Barney Stinson, Marshall and Lily are my favourite characters. However this episode showcased them both at their most selfish. Marshall quitting his job at GNB, for a nonpaying role without discussing it with Lily was very selfish, and Lily ditching Ted at the airport to go to Spain without telling anyone, was almost as bad as leaving Marshall to try her hand at a painting scholarship in San Francisco at the end of season one.
