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.

HIMYM has matured in this season
21 December 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The premise of Season 5 was that it went almost downhill compared to the other predecessing seasons of the show, I think Carter Bays & Craig Thomas decided to create a season where there are episodes of hilarity (eg, Glitter) but also episodes of seriousness (eg, Last Words).

This episode however is one of those that are serious and also have moments of humour. I think this might be the second best series finale on the show (first being The Leap).

I have one slight negative thing to say about it, when an old woman gives the wrong blonde girl the flowers and the narrator Ted says "and that kids is how I met Your Mother - Psyche! that was just some random girl" (might not be exact) my point is that they already did a false mother joke already here and that was in "Belly Full Of Turkey" and that was pulled off extremely well, I think that the next time Ted says "and that was how I met your mother" I think he should mean it.

I also like seeing the characters evolution - since the end of Series 3 Barney has matured from being an emotionally detached womanizing prick, into somebody that can actually go for commitment (as shown in the last clip).

My opinion is that whenever I'll look back at the pilot I'll see some extreme differences within the characters (as with most good shows)
