Storyline

In the aftermath of Robin's break-up with Kevin and Ted's resulting confession to her that he is still in love with her, Robin has much time to think about Ted's admission as she is heading off on a business trip to Moscow. Robin leaves Ted with something to think about: a kiss and a vow to talk about their situation when she returns. But when Ted turns to Marshall and subsequently Lily for advice, Marshall offers words of hope and Lily offer a declaration that he and Robin were never meant to be together. Based on something that Barney discovers under Marshall and Lily's bed, Ted comes to realize why Marshall and Lily so often take different sides on an issue. Before Robin returns, Ted believes he knows what her answer is going to be. When Robin returns and does give Ted her answer, Marshall and Lily have differing opinions on whether her answer is definitive. Meanwhile, Barney searches high and low through Marshall and Lily's house for a videotape of them having sex, which Lily ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When Ted calls Marshall to meet him at the bar (around the 3:30 mark) and they hang up, you can clearly see Marshall's phone screen as he pulls it away from his ear and that it was not in a call but simply in what appears to be the app menu. See more »

It Has It's Moments

There is some fun to be had in this episode. But the main plot is dull and a re run of what we have seen before, as Ted obsesses over Robin.

Plot In A Paragraph: Following Robin's break-up with Kevin and Ted's confession to her that he is still in love with her, Robin has much to think about as she is heading off on a business trip to Moscow. Robin leaves Ted with something to think about: a kiss and a vow to talk about their situation when she returns. But when Ted turns to Marshall and Lily for advice, Marshall offers words of encouragement and Lily offer a declaration that he and Robin were never meant to be together. (with a little help from Barney) Ted discovers why Marshall and Lily are often on different sides of an argument. Meanwhile, Barney searches high and low through Marshall and Lily's house for a videotape of them having sex.

Barney searching for the sex tape was the highlight of the episode (Well actually Alyson Hannigan in lingerie was the real highlight of the episode) and Lily and Marshall's bets were fun too, but sadly the main story of Robin and Ted was dull and quite frankly bored me.

This season has had some great episodes, but it seems to have lost its way of late!!
