Storyline

Robin is attending court ordered therapy sessions stemming from an incident where she assaulted someone. The assault had something to do with her feelings for Barney, and not being able to deal emotionally with watching Barney court Nora, especially in the public and over-the-top manner he was doing it. As Robin tells the story, which includes her helping Barney as a "friend" erase the many loose hanging scams to pick up women so that Nora will think him a changed man, Robin's therapist, Kevin, gets more and more exasperated by the long winded nature of Robin's story. Part of that exasperation comes from what he sees as a tangent to the story he wants and needs to hear, but that Robin swears is cogent to the assault charge. That tangent concerns Ted inserting himself into Lily's pregnancy, as he has always seen himself, Marshall and Lily as an unbreakable threesome, like three peas in a pod.

Once again I'm starting my review of this episode with the same sentence. Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson in the latest episode of "How I Met Your Mother".

Plot In A Paragraph: Jealous over Barney's relationship with Nora, Robin tells her court- appointed therapist the series of events that led up to the assault that she committed.

This episode shows Robin is a bit of a bully to her enthusiastic co-worker Patrice.

I'm not a fan of Kal Penn, who guest stars as Robin's court appointed therapist (he appears in the Harold and Kumar movies with Neil Patrick Harris) so hopefully he is just in this one episode. I'm loving that Nora is a regular love interest for Barney as I really like the actress and the the character.
