Robin and Barney are out for a special dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, where they want to recreate one of their favorite past experiences together. Their dinner is ruined by who they deem the most obnoxious couple they've ever met. As such, Robin and Barney's mission changes to ruining not only that couple's dinner, but their lives. Meanwhile, Marshall is in St. Cloud with Marvin to visit Judy, who has just learned that Marshall and Lily are moving to Rome. Judy threatens to do whatever subversive measure required to stop them from moving away. As Lily is on her own, she heads out to Westchester with Ted, who has finally completed the renovations on his house, the one where he wants to raise his future family with his future wife, whoever she may be. Ted informs Lily of his plans for the immediate future which does not match his purpose for that house. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


When Lily and Ted are talking about 'the girl', Lily says to Ted that 'she's out there walking around New York City right now...probably in a pair of really cute boots that she's gonna let me borrow whenever I want because we're the same size'. The first shot we see of the mother in the train station is of her boots. See more »


Once again Ted tells Lily about his true feelings for Robin, even though he knows Lily can't keep a secret. See more »


Lily Aldrin: Ted, you did this all yourself?
Ted Mosby: Just like Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. It's pretty manly until I mentioned "Ryan Gosling in The Notebook," huh?
Lily Aldrin: Even I haven't seen it, Ted.

Just What We Hoped For
13 May 2013 | by adityasenguptaSee all my reviews

Just saw it. Special preview here.

Totally, and absolutely worth everything. To me, this is the best way a season finale should be made. Immaculate acting, plot structure.

It does leave a lot of unanswered questions. But that is the point. Season 9 will be the ending, that's without a doubt.

Marshall and Lily's departure. And of course, the Ted-Barney-Robin triangle. A lot. And more.

I know this is a vague review, but i do not want to spoil it for anyone. Just know this, it is brilliant, intelligent and touching. The viewers will not be disappointed.
