Storyline

Robin Scherbatsky Sr. is in town. He and Barney, the son he never had, bond doing one of Barney's favorite activities, laser tag. But not all is harmonious between the father/son duo. Their bonding time leaves Robin Jr. to carry out an important task, namely finding the locket she buried near the Central Park carousel when she was a teenager, that locket which was always intended to be her "something old" at her wedding. Having trouble trying to find it, she also has trouble getting anyone to help her, which is important as that locket has more meaning to her than just the traditional symbolic wedding item. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily are having trouble trying to decide what to take with them to Italy and what to throw away, so they call in the packing expert, Ted, who is so renowned for traveling through Spain for two weeks with everything he needed in only a "hand's free belt satchel" (i.e. fanny pack). But Ted's expertise takes a back seat for another criterion which dictates what... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Ted Mosby: This is the first thing we bought when we moved here after college. It-it was the only piece of furniture we had for a week. And now you two are moving to Italy. I mean, what if our friendship doesn't the pass the "have-you-used-it-in-a-year" test? If you can throw out this chair, who's to say that you can't throw me out too?
Marshall Eriksen: That could never happen!
Lily Aldrin: You're not a chair, you're our best friend!

Mixed Feelings As Season Heads To Its Close
1 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the title of this episode being "something old" and the next episode being titled "something new" I expected a double header focusing on the wedding of Barney and Robin, but I guess I'm wrong.

Plot In A Paragraph: Robin Scherbatsky Sr. is in town. He and Barney (the son he never had) bond doing one of Barney's favourite activities, laser tag. But not all is harmonious between the father/son duo, and soon they are at war. Literally. However their bonding time leaves Robin time to carry out an important task, namely finding the locket she buried near the Central Park carousel when she was a teenager, that locket which was always intended to be her "something old" at her wedding. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily are having trouble trying to decide what to take with them to Italy and what to throw away, so they call in the packing expert, Ted.

So Ted clearly still has feelings for Robin (who didn't know, or at least suspect that??) and Robin is having doubts about marrying Barney, and is maybe thinking Ted is the guy for her. I didn't like the end scene at all!! Everything was fine with Robin and Barney at the end of the last episode, so why bring all this negativity and doubts in to it?? On the plus side Barney and Robins Dad at Laser Tag was great fun.
