Ted spots who he believes is the next love of his life on the subway, but she gets off before he can approach her. Before he can systematically track her down - which would be against the advice of Marshall and Lily - the mystery woman, whose name is Jeanette, runs into Ted. They both believe it's fate telling them that they were meant to be together. However, Marshall and Lily believe that Jeanette running into Ted was just a little too convenient, and that she may have been stalking him. This belief by Marshall and Lily leads to Robin making an admission that in her younger years, she was obsessed by someone, who she refuses to name. Barney, in turn, becomes obsessed with finding out the object of Robin's obsession. This quest leads to the gang learning another unknown phase in the life and career of Robin Sparkles. And Lily eventually also makes her own admission about her love life past. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


The progression from Robin Sparkles to Robin Daggers is very similar to the real life career of Alanis Morissette who, before releasing Jagged Little Pill, had come out with a couple of light pop albums in Canada and went simply by "Alanis". Robin Dagger's vocal style is also reminiscent of Alanis. See more »


Robin, talking about her two musical releases ( Let's go to the mall - Sandcastles in the sand ) claims that both were successful. Few season earlier ( #3.16 titled "Sandcastles in the sand ) she says that the second single " It kind of tanked ". See more »

Neil Patrick Harris Is The Best Thing In This
18 February 2015 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

For some explicable reason the TV channel I'm watching the reruns on, skipped the last episode (Thanks E4) and went straight on to this one!! I hate it when it does that!! Hopefully I have not missed anything too important.

Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother.

Plot in A Paragraph: Ted spots who he believes is "The One" (and of course Ted being Ted, that means he thinks she will be "The love of my life" and "The future mother of my children") on the subway, but she gets off before he can say anything to her. They run in go each other the next day. Ted believes it's fate telling them that they were meant to be together. However, Marshall and Lily believe she may have been stalking him. Meanwhile Barney becomes obsessed with finding out the object of Robin stalked in her younger years.
