Storyline

Before Barney's friends meet Quinn for the first time, Barney swears Ted to a broath (short for bro oath) that he won't tell them what Quinn does for a living. Concerned for Barney's welfare as he seems to be blinded by Quinn's manipulative ways, Ted quickly tells the others about her profession.

They quickly come to the conclusion after meeting her that she is continuing her manipulative ways.

Neil Patrick Harris Is Saving This Show
11 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

After a couple of the less than stellar episodes, how does "How I Met Your Mother" get back on track?? Give the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris the main storyline and a lot more screen time of course two episodes in a row

Plot In A Paragraph: Before Barney's friends meet Quinn for the first time, Barney swears Ted to a broath (short for bro oath) that he won't tell them what Quinn does for a living. Concerned for Barney, Ted quickly tells the others about her job. However they too are concerned and want to judge Quinn on whether she is good for Barney. They quickly come to the conclusion after meeting her that she is manipulating Barney. They are even more concerned when Barney tells them that Quinn and he are planning on living together. So, the gang decide to have one of their interventions, or what Marshall has renamed for this special occasion a Quinntervention. Will Barney side with his longtime friends or his new love? Meanwhile a battle breaks out between Ted and Robin, over who gets Quinns apartment when she does move in with Barney

This is the first excellent episode of "How I Met Your Mother" In A Long Time. Neil Patrick Harris is always brilliant as Barney, and in Quinn, he seems he has more than met his match. I haven't warmed to her as much as I did Nora, but she is fun. The Ted and Robin argument highlights the uncomfortable relationship they are having at the moment, and it slows down a brilliant episode.
