He quit being her therapist since he was attracted to her. Learning that information, she admits her feelings for him in a roundabout way, and they eventually begin to date. They have to decide whether they can get over the issues that they spoke of in therapy, and get over the unethical nature of their relationship, especially as everyone reminds them of how unethical it is. Marshall, now in his dream job of working for famed environmental lawyer Garrison Cootes, may now believe that the job is not as much of a dream as he imagined it would be. Cootes seems to be letting major polluters off the hook by accepting less than sizable settlements. Cootes and the rest of the staff seem elated by these meager settlements.

I myself as a HIMYM fan really enjoyed the start of the new season, 3 very decent episodes that got me interested again after a lame 6th season. However these last 2 episodes with the therapist got me off track again. It's not innovating, the writers seem to have lost inspiration and frankly the therapist guy is a bad actor. Barney's jokes can't save the episode anymore and Robin's acting has gone downhill as well. The storyline of Lily's and Marshalls baby isn't interesting either. I hope they can turn things around because I can see my favorite show being canceled if they continue on this level and we may never find out who their mother is.
