The summer of 2012 would be considered the summer of love for the gang with Marshall and Lily, Ted and Victoria, Barney and Quinn, and Nick and Robin all in blissfully happy coupledom. But by the fall, one item would turn that bliss on its head: a pre-nup issued by Barney for Quinn. Although most agree that Barney's requests are on the most part unreasonable - that is except for Barney and his lawyer, Arthur Hobbs - it is a starting point for a war between the sexes, not only with the women siding with Quinn and the men siding with Barney, but also bringing up issues in each of the other three relationships. With Marshall and Lily, they begin to argue about parenting. With Ted and Victoria, they begin to argue about how to get over their jilted and jilting past, especially as Ted has invited Klaus to room with him temporarily. And with Nick and Robin, they begin to argue about Robin's quirk in the bedroom in conjunction with her news career. By the next day, one of those arguments ... Written by Huggo

Another Episode That Fails The 8 Or Above Rule
12 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another episode that fails the 8 or above rule. This is not a great start to the season.

Plot In A Paragraph: The summer of 2012 is "The Summer of Love": Barney and Quinn, Ted and Victoria, Robin and Nick, and Marshall, Lily and Marvin everyone was as happy as could be. That means there were absolutely no good stories. So we skip ahead to October 2012, which kicked off what came to be known as "The Autumn of Breakups."

The character of Nick is dull and pointless, and Klaus is as bad as Kevin in terms of how out of place he is. Neither of these two additions bring anything to the table let alone any laughs. Be gone with them.
