Storyline

As Ted and Victoria are about to run off together, Ted convinces Victoria that she needs to leave a note for her fiancé Klaus to give him some closure on the situation. But leaving that note is not as easy as Victoria going back to the church. Ultimately to help Victoria, Ted may have to overcome a childhood phobia. Meanwhile, Quinn, who does not have a lot of what she considers close girl friends, asks Robin and Lily to stand up for her when she and Barney get married. This request brings up the fact that Quinn has no idea that Robin and Barney used to date, which Barney has no intention of ever telling her. In fact, Barney has managed to erase all history of his and Robin's romantic past. Sleep deprived new parents Marshall and Lily, and some deep seated beliefs of Klaus' will directly and indirectly affect what happens between both Ted and Victoria, and between Barney and Quinn.

Trivia

The word that Klaus keeps saying is "lebenslanger Schicksalschatz" (would actually be two words in German) and does literally mean "lifelong treasure of destiny". However, this is not a standard phrase in German. See more »

Falls Short On The Marshall & Lily 8 Or Above Rule
12 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Season eight starts off exactly where season seven left us, Robin and Barney's wedding.

Plot In A Paragtaph: As Ted and Victoria are about to run off together, Ted convinces Victoria that she needs to leave a note for her fiancé Klaus to give him some closure on the situation. But leaving that note is not easy. Meanwhile, Quinn asks Robin and Lily to be bridesmaids when she and Barney get married.

With a Klaus voice over we see Barney is not not 100% over Robin, and still has a soft spot for her, and Ted deep down knows Victoria is not "The One" but we do finally see Ted get his first look at the mother of his children at the end of this episode.

If this season builds towards this wedding (probably the season finale) we should meet the mother this season.
