Episode complete credited cast:


Ted latest girlfriend, Jeanette, has barricaded herself in Ted's bedroom following their break-up, which in part was prompted by Ted's friends convincing him that she's crazy, and his own realization that he didn't see a future with her. It isn't easy to get her out without her causing major destruction because of her crazed state. Beyond Ted trying to figure out how to get her to leave, his friends try to figure out if Jeanette's current behavior is all her fault. Meanwhile, Marvin is eight months old, and no one has realized that Robin has never been left alone with him, nor has she ever picked him up, which is due to fear of the unknown. When Lily leaves Marvin with Robin on an emergency, an incident happens between Robin and Marvin about which Lily would probably be quite angry. Robin decides not to tell Lily about what happened... at least not yet. Written by Huggo

Season Seems To Be Just Plodding Along
18 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode of "How I Met Your Mother" had some good bits, but sadly like most of this season, it's filled with more substandard material.

Plot In A Paragraph: Thanks to Barney and Marshall, Jeanette has barricaded herself in Ted's bedroom following their break-up. Meanwhile, Marvin is now eight months old, and no one has realised that Robin has never held him.

Overall this season has been more miss than hit, which is a shame. I still think if we get to see Ted meet the mother at Barney and Robins wedding in the season finale, (At least that's if I'm right I assuming "Something New" is the wedding) hopefully the last season will be a vast Improvement and return to form.

Sadly despite a few decent episodes, this season just seems to be treading water and merely plodding along!! Which I hate saying as I'm a big fan of all the cast and the show in general.
