Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Robin and Barney are out for a special dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, where they want to recreate one of their favorite past experiences together. Their dinner is ruined by who they deem the most obnoxious couple they've ever met. As such, Robin and Barney's mission changes to ruining not only that couple's dinner, but their lives. Meanwhile, Marshall is in St. Cloud with Marvin to visit Judy, who has just learned that Marshall and Lily are moving to Rome. Judy threatens to do whatever subversive measure required to stop them from moving away. As Lily is on her own, she heads out to Westchester with Ted, who has finally completed the renovations on his house, the one where he wants to raise his future family with his future wife, whoever she may be. Ted informs Lily of his plans for the immediate future which does not match his purpose for that house. Written by Huggo

Just What We Hoped For
13 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just saw it. Special preview here.

Totally, and absolutely worth everything. To me, this is the best way a season finale should be made. Immaculate acting, plot structure.

It does leave a lot of unanswered questions. But that is the point. Season 9 will be the ending, that's without a doubt.

Marshall and Lily's departure. And of course, the Ted-Barney-Robin triangle. A lot. And more.

I know this is a vague review, but i do not want to spoil it for anyone. Just know this, it is brilliant, intelligent and touching. The viewers will not be disappointed.
