Storyline

Marshall and Lily are doing many of their post-wedding tasks, such as writing thank you notes and preparing their individual "death folder", which is a package of information for the other in case of their untimely death. Lily implies that the folder should contain a personal letter, of which Marshall was not aware. He quickly writes a heartfelt letter to the love of his life. Unable to resist the urge, he opens Lily's letter which isn't quite what he was expecting. Robin, who had a good time in Argentina, can't seem to capture that joie de vivre she had while in Argentina, even though Gael is still doing those things he did in Argentina which made her so carefree. A move by Gael may show Robin if she really is cut out to be the "Argentina Robin". And impressed by how Gael attracts the women, Barney and Ted decide to take on that attribute they believe is attracting the women: being a foreigner who can only have a short term fling before heading home.

Trivia

In Lily's death folder, she says her ATM code is 5459. This spells LILY. This could be a nod to Friends, where Joey's pin is 5639. See more »

Goofs

When Robin slams the bedroom door after brandishing her gun to Gael's house guests, you can see the wall/door structure "wobble" from the force of the slam. Obviously, the set walls aren't as sturdy as a wall within a New York apartment would be. See more »

Quotes

[Robin's recent relationship with an Argentinean named Gael and her switch to more natural habits after her trip are being discussed by the characters at the bar]
Barney: Please... vacation romances have an expiration date. Gael's got a 'best if banged by' sticker on him. Once your romance starts to stink, you'll dump his ass down the drain like sour milk, and go back to being "unevolved Robin", the one we actually like. Back me up here, Ted.
Ted: I'm just happy Robin's happy.
Barney: I'm telling you: Within three ...

A bit more entertaining; still not what it should be
24 November 2015 | by SLionsCricketreviewsSee all my reviews

I mostly found myself getting frustrated with Robin in this episode. Not because of her affair with Gael, but mostly because the writers decided to portray Robin as utterly feeble against the chaos that was ensuing at her apartment. Ultimately, this sin was somewhat redeemed when Robin threatened the strangers at her apartment with a gun! That was pretty badass!

I also enjoyed Marshall crying whilst writing his death letter to Lily. Jason Segel's portrayal is downright gold. The story with Barney and returning wingman, Ted, was okay.

Perhaps a tad better than the previous episode, it really is hard to say. Hoping this season quickly finds its tracking.
