Storyline

After Marshall leaves GNB to pursue a job with the NRDC, he finds that his chance to work there have been dashed by his ex-boss Arthur. Needing to find a job with a purpose, he gets an opportunity as the lawyer for the Save the Arcadian group headed by Zoey. This move places Marshall and Barney at odds with each other. Their feud escalates to the point of a fight which gets not only them but the rest of the gang banned from MacLaren's. The ban has the equally annoying result for Robin and Lily of relinquishing their booth to a woman who has been hovering and preying on it. Robin and Lily decide they need to mount a scheme to get Marshall and Barney back to being friends, the scheme which entails plying them with a myriad of different cocktails to get them into a specific mood at each stage of their reconciliation.

God She Is Annoying
30 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So it's official, my least favourite character currently in "How I Met Your Mother" has now driven a wedge between the group, she has now officially taken over Stella as my least favourite love interest of Ted's. In fact she is my least favourite love interest of any character, I truly dislike this woman.

Plot In A Paragraph: When Marshall switches sides on the Arcadian dispute, and he becomes Stella's lawyer, his friendship with Barney is compromised and an all night war is waged that results in the gang getting banned from the bar. Meanwhile, Ted finally finds the courage to confront Zoey about the same topic.

The Marshal and Barney story was funny, the Ted and Zoe one wasn't!! I dislike her, and Ted is so desperate for love, he is willing to possibly give up his dream for her happiness. Would she do the same for him?? I doubt it!!

The high rating is for Lilly & Robin and Barney & Marshall
