The opening ceremonies of the new GNB headquarters is soon happening, and all of Ted's friends plan on being there to support him and help him celebrate his achievement. The one friend who won't be there is Barney, who admits to Ted that he is planning on asking Patrice to marry him that evening. Barney swears Ted to secrecy. Ted however feels that Robin has a right to know if only because he believes that she still loves Barney. Ted has to decide if his vow of secrecy to Barney or Robin's lifetime happiness is more important. If he does decide to tell Robin, that may signify that he himself has finally let Robin go romantically. Marshall and Lily are able to attend the ceremony as Mickey has given them an early Christmas present: twenty-four hours of consecutive babysitting service. This time will be their first extended time away from Marvin, and they are looking forward to it. Beyond attending the opening ceremonies, Marshall and Lily plan on getting down and dirty with each other.... Written by Huggo

surprise, surprise !!
18 December 2012 | by pulioliverSee all my reviews

fun and a bit different than what we are used to in how i met your mother .but as the season 8 is moving ahead, things are developing too fast in this TV show i can say just few words about this episode: surprising, fast, too fictional ( in way how all things are magically explain at end)\ all in all, surprise and so-so episode i saw much better. so before u watch it, don't have so big expectations. yes after this u can really wonder what will happen next, but also u just stop, and think : what now? why this happened and why in this, lets say harshly, stupid way.OK, screen players are trying to short a bit this how i met your mother saga,but in some episodes, things are really moving too slow, and now, out of blew,everything happens in just one episode.
