In the aftermath of Ted and Zoey's break-up, Ted is having second thoughts. He is freaking out about an issue with the GNB headquarters, and historically when Ted freaks out about something, he turns to dating an old girlfriend if only for something comfortable and familiar, however bad returning to that relationship ended up being. When Barney and Robin find out that Ted is going to meet Zoey to get back together with her, they have to try and figure out where that meeting place is so that they can stop him. Beyond piecing together this puzzle, Barney and Robin's quest leads to them discussing their own relationship. Meanwhile, Lily has come down with a case of food poisoning from some soup. Marshall eats the soup three hours later, which means that his symptoms of excessive vomiting will start three hours later than Lily's did.

Some Lovely Moments In Season Finale
2 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A fun season finale as season 6 of "How I Met Your Mother" comes to a close.

Plot In A Paragraph: Robin and Barney grow close when they realise Ted is about to restart his relationship with Zoe. Meanwhile Marshall and Lily watch a ticking clock as he fears that he soon will be the victim of food poisoning.

Whilst I was not happy to see Zoe return (and the possibility of her getting back with Ted) I was delighted to Nora return and she seems willing to give Barney another chance so hopefully she returns in season seven as I really like her. And I loved the Lily and Marshall ending.

Although Robin seems to have realised she still has feelings for Barney. And in a flag forward, we see just who Ted is best man for.
