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 »

Quotes

Klaus: Victoria is wunderbar, but she is not my "Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz." She's my "Beinahe-Leidenschaftsgegenstand"... it means the thing that is almost the thing that you want, but it's not quite. That is Victoria to me.
Ted Mosby: How do you know she's not "Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz?" Maybe as the years go by she'll get "Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz... ier?"
Klaus: "Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz" is not something that develops over time. It is something that happens instantaneously. It courses through ...

HIMYM 8x01 Review

The Season 8 premiere of How I Met Your Mother picked right of from how Season 7 ended. There's Quinn, Barney, Robin, Lily and Marshall all at the apartment adoring Little Marvin, while Ted is out running away with Victoria. Quinn ends up finding out about how Barney and Robin used to date from the sleep-deprived Marshall and Lily, who are notably worn out through the episode. This conflict was rather predictable, but it still could've been handled better. The conclusion with Robin having a boyfriend called Nick who's super hot ending all discussion about the conflict was somewhat rushed and displayed choppy writing that some of this episode had. However, that can be overlooked because of Ted's storyline. I personally found this to be the more interesting storyline and that Ted's constant failures to leave a note for Klaus to have closure between Victoria and Klaus pretty funny. I think the end was what really made this episode memorable, the flash forward showing us how close we are to the mother, which is something we've been waiting a long time for.

9/10 Amazing.

+ Ted's leaving the note behind storyline was strong

+ We're so close to the mother.

+ Marshall and Lily provided a decent amount of laughs.

  • Underwhelming Robin/Barney/Quinn storyline.
