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.

Quotes

Barney Stinson: [after Quinn finds out Barney dated Robin and gives him exactly 1 minute to explain himself] Barney: Seven years ago when Marshall and Lily got engaged Ted saw Robin across a crowded room and I said "oh yeah you just know she likes it dirty," but Ted really liked her so we played "Haaave You me Ted?" They went to dinner, he walked her home, should have kissed her, didn't, lame. So he stole the Smurf penis, went back to her place, should have kissed her, didn't, lame.

Great start of a perfect ending
25 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I just want to start of by saying that this show is coming to its conclusion in this season or the next. As much as i love the show it is good to finally see the ending of a great sitcom.

Farhampton starts off where season 7 left of and we now know that barney and robin are getting married. I also know that Ted meets the mother at that wedding. With robin freaking out about the wedding they flashback to present day to when barney was engaged to Quinn. with Marvin born lily and marshal are copping with the hard work and Ted is having his own situation with Victoria,the run away bride.

This episode has its laughs as expected and also delivers emotion. the last 5 minutes are one of the best of scenes i have seen lately on TV. robin reminiscing on the time she was dating barney and and lily and marshal happy with Marvin "wait for it" Erikson. Last but not least Ted sitting on that train station after,as far as i know the big wedding of barney and robin. You see the mother walk up to the station and it leaves you thinking what now.
