In April 2013, Ted is feeling all alone with Marshall and Lily preoccupied with their family, Robin and Barney planning their wedding, and Ted without a significant other in his life. Barney asks Ted if he would like to go see "Robots Vs. Wrestlers Legends". Ted decides against it. Ted is visited by future versions of Barney and himself, who try to convince him to go or not to go with current Barney to the event. The visit by these future versions of Barney and himself, who have the knowledge of what happens in the future, eventually opens Ted's eyes to why he has really received these visits. Meanwhile, Marshall embarks on a battle with Robin as Robin has received credit at MacLaren's for a cocktail he created, while Lily vows to stay neutral in their battle. Written by Huggo

Ted Mosby: Okay, how about this: we go to Robots vs Wrestlers, but I don't drink too much.
Barney: Interesting...
Twenty-Hours-From-Now-Ted: I'm good with that.
Twenty-Years-From-Now-Barney: No, forget it! If Ted doesn't get wasted, there's no way he'll end up making out with that surprisingly realistic-looking female robot!
Ted Mosby: Wait, I kiss a female robot?
Twenty-Years-From-Now-Ted: Oh, you do a lot more than that!

As the show goes, I seriously do not know what's going on in the writers head, but they are obviously running out of ideas. I haven't had this kind of disappointment since the middle of the 6th series, but this episode was a disaster. The main line is this x time from now. I'm from the future, 22 minutes from now, and I highly recommend myself not to watch this episode because it will ruin my day. There is no fun in it. Boring. I miss the usual HIMYM jokes, we have just this anemic part of Robin and Marshall, but nothing else. I never wanted to say this, but this episode was the last step on a long road, from now I am really only watching the show to get to know who the hell this mother can be. Sorry guys, you had something great and you wanted more but did'n have the imagination or the courage to do it: now you suffer because you're losing hundreds or maybe thousands of viewers.
