Despite their therapy going well, Kevin announces to Robin that he is quitting being her therapist since he is moving to Alaska. Robin soon learns that that story is a lie. He quit being her therapist since he was attracted to her. Learning that information, she admits her feelings for him in a roundabout way, and they eventually begin to date.

Disappointment After Great Start To Season
4 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At last Jason Segel has a prominent storyline for the first time this season.

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall thinks his boss has gone soft on environmentalism, Robin tries to date her therapist, Barney suspects that Nora may be lying about her age, and Ted takes his "Intro to Architecture" class on a field trip.

Any episode of "How I Met Your Mother" that has this many "Star Wars" references is going to get a big thumbs up from this reviewer. That said Kal Penn returned as Kevin, Robins Therapist/new love interest, but that was balanced out by Nora returning who is my favourite Barney love interest.

Overall this was a disappointing episode after a great start to the seventh season. The ducky tie episode was great, and set the bar quite high, but hopefully things pick up soon.
