Robin, Barney, Ted, Lily and James have arrived at the Farhampton Inn for Robin and Barney's nuptials. At a moment when Barney steps away from the table during a meal that the five are having together, Robin, Ted and Lily learn directly from James that he and Tom are getting a divorce. Robin wants to hide this information from Barney as James and Tom's marriage - which broke the Stinson horniness curse - was the reason why Barney felt that he could now commit to one person in marriage. Ted gets an overly sympathetic hotel desk clerk in Curtis, who doesn't think Ted should stay at the Inn as it is designed more for couples than singles. Lily may also fit into that category when she learns from Marshall that he is still stuck in Minnesota and may not make it to Farhampton in time for the wedding.

Coming Back (#9.2)
9 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like how we are going so slowly towards the wedding and they manage to add so many fun stories. This episode was also a very good one that I enjoyed.

I really hope in the next episode we get to see Marshall and Daphne traveling together in the car. This episode had already great scenes of the two of them when trying to get a car. And I am glad she ended up picking him up because I was sure she won't.

Lily was fun too, especially in my favorite scene with her where she tells that Barney's brother gets divorced. Another wonderful scene that followed it was Barney and Robin at the room of Barney's brother.

I must say I didn't care too much about Ted and the mother. I mean I never expected I will really like her, she seems so boring, prude and old school.
