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

Robin Scherbatsky: Yeah, if I ask you to change too many things about yourself, you're not gonna be the man I fell in love with. Turns out I accept and appreciate even the grossest, creepiest, most sociopathic parts of you.
Barney Stinson: Sounds like somebody just wrote her vows.

The Best Episode In A While
19 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother.

Plot In A Paragraph: It's weeks before Barney and Robin's wedding, Robin is insisting that they don't live at Barney's apartment. He loves his "Fortress of Barnitude". But against his wishes, it goes on the market. However, selling it isn't easy when others learn more and more about with what Barney has equipped his apartment. Meanwhile, Lily hasn't spent much time with Marshall because of her job with The Captain as he needs her to be at his beck and call.

This is not just the best episode of this season, it's one of the best ever, and is definitely the best episode since 'The Ducky Tie' and it's all down to Neil Patrick Harris. The guy is excellent.
