Storyline

It's weeks before Barney and Robin's wedding, and one of the many things they still have to decide is where to live. The one thing Robin insists is that they don't live at Barney's apartment. So it goes on the market. However, Barney doesn't want to sell it to just anyone, but someone who is worthy of what was and will always be in his heart his "Fortress of Barnitude". Robin has a slightly different idea, which isn't as easy to achieve as she would like when she and others learn more and more about with what Barney has equipped his apartment. Meanwhile, Lily hasn't spent much time of late with her family because of her job with The Captain. She seems to be at his beck and call, and doesn't seem to mind. Marshall understands, until it affects a planned evening out. So, Marshall decides to cheat on Lily with someone who Lily knows. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Barney lowers a green screen on the balcony which those viewing his apartment see as being cityscapes from around the world. This is not how green screens work, and would require them to watch the scene through a monitor. See more »

Boring
23 March 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The episode was just boring. They tried to be funny, but that was it. A lame try. Career-Lily is not really likable anymore, Ted is meaningless, Barneys apartment is stupid and childish and the whole episode was just... nothing. Once HIMYM used to be so funny, full of laughters and good written jokes... But now the whole show is nothing but a story about the boring life of upper class snobs. Where has the wit gone? I guess to other, now better TV Shows... I liked HIMYM till Barneys and Robins engagement... but everything that came after this is getting worse and worse. Summary? Barney and Robin talk about a new apartment, Lily is never at home, Ted sits around and Marshall does nothing either.
