Storyline

It's days before the hearing in front of the Landmark Preservation Society. The issue of the Arcadian has placed a strain between Barney and the rest of the gang, especially now that Marshall is working as Zoey's lawyer and Ted, despite being the GNB headquarter's architect, is now siding with Zoey on the issue, more to support her than perhaps he truly feeling that the Arcadian is a building worth saving. Ted has second thoughts when he learns that Barney will lose his job if he states at the hearing that he supports keeping the building as a landmark. Ted's friends question him about the reason he is siding with Zoey and whether it will have the effect he desires. On the flip side, will Zoey support Ted regardless of what he states at the hearing? Lily believes she's come up with the solution to help Ted, Barney and Marshall. Written by Huggo

Trivia

Ted's mom, in his dream, has a top spinning, likely a reference to Inception (2010) and the main character's tool to know if he was dreaming. The spinning top proves he is in a dream. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Horvath: [the Landmark Preservation Commission has come to a decision regarding the Arcadian] Last night, this committee came to a vote, and while we've all felt from the very beginning that the Arcadian was, well, an eyesore, Mr Mosby's surprising testimony about the lion's head stonework left us with no choice but to declare it a landmark.
[Zoey's camp applauds]
Mr. Horvath: But then, something else happened last night. That same lion's head stonework... disappeared,
[audience is agape in shock]
Mr. Horvath: so it makes our job ...

Decisions To Be Made As Season 6 Heads To Its Conclusion
30 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

And I didn't think Zoe could get any more annoying!! What she did in this episode was despicable, and showed she never really cared about Ted, only getting her own way.

Plot in A Paragraph: In the lead up to the hearing in front of the Landmark Preservation Society. The issue of the Arcadian has driven a wedge between Barney and the rest of the gang, especially now that Marshall is working as Zoey's lawyer and Ted, (despite being the GNB headquarter's architect) is now siding with Zoey on the issue (more to support his girlfriend than how he really feels) He has second thoughts when he learns that Barney will lose his job if he states at the hearing that he supports keeping the building as a landmark.

The one good thing to come out of this episode is that we'll hopefully never have to see Zoe again now she has finally shown her true colours. And the way she said to Ted "what do you have to say to yourself??" before storming off in a huff, was typical of the character!!
