James continually badmouthing the institution of marriage leads to a showdown between him and Robin in the form of their respective wedding rings, that showdown which Robin wins. This confrontation leads to Loretta coming to her black son's defense against Robin. As such, Barney is forced to choose between his family and his soon to be wife. Lily learns that Ted is getting Barney and Robin multiple wedding gifts. This act is the last straw in what has been a slow burn for Lily and Marshall since their wedding as Ted never got them a wedding present, despite Marshall having dropped continual hints over the years. But when they eventually confront Ted, Ted flips it around on them, stating that he did get them a wedding gift. They never sent him a thank you note, about which he continually dropped hints to Marshall over the years. They will have to get to the bottom of whether Ted really did get them a wedding present or if he really forgot to. Written by
