There were two homes that stole the spotlight in tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother: The Fortress of Barnitude and Woodworthy Manor.
The former took the spotlight after Robin brought up the fact that she was uncomfortable living in what she later referred to as Barney’s “disease-riddled bangpad,” which I’m sure will also one day be the name of a Bachelor Pad spin-off. Instead, she said she wanted a clean start. “So we have to find an apartment where I haven’t banged someone; how do you feel about Cleveland?” he joked before agreeing. READ FULL STORY
This week’s episode might have been about Ted’s break up with crazy Jeanette, but for much of the episode, all I could think about was how much I didn’t like Barney.
You see, this week’s episode, “Weekend at Barney’s,” revealed that Barney’s grand Playbook-burning moment from a few episodes back was all a lie. Well, at least partly a lie. I’ll explain…
The episode started with a much-celebrated break-up between Ted and Jeanette. (She broke it off because things were going too fast, she said.) After they broke up, Ted briefly considered trying to win her back, but Barney intervened and convinced him that Ted needed a new romantic start. So Barney used Playbook No. 2 to help Ted find a new date for his and Robin’s wedding. Yes, Playbook No. 2. It turns out that when Barney burned his Playbook a few episodes back — you know, the gesture that made Robin finally realize that Barney was someone she could marry — he was burning one of two copies. Ugh. Robin did find out, though, but I’ll get to that. READ FULL STORY
How I Met Your Mother loves to play with its method of storytelling, and for longtime fans of the series, these truth- and time-bending romps are often a big treat. And that’s exactly how I felt watching last night’s episode, which found Ted and Robin telling two very different tales of their last encounter with the Captain (Kyle MacLachlan). Spoiler alert: They were both wrong. But we’ll get there. First, I have to explain why the Captain came up at all… READ FULL STORY

How I Met Your Mother recap: The crazies
I almost used the headline “Burning Down the House” for this recap, but I decided to put that one in my back pocket until later. Later meaning when we get the full story about how Jeanette burns down Ted’s apartment.
We only got a small peek at the moment on last night’s episode (in the classic, “this happens later” How I Met Your Mother way), but one thing is pretty clear: This fire won’t be an accident. Yes, after seeing Jeanette in all her crazy glory tonight (talking to Marilyn Monroe’s cat via séance? Okay…), I think it’s safe to assume that the arson portion of this courtship will come after a huge, colossal meltdown that I can’t wait to see. Note: There should never be an “arson portion” of a courtship. READ FULL STORY
“It was tragic. To this day you ask any Canadian where they were when Robin Sparkles lost it, not only can they tell you which Tim Hortons they were in, but what donut they were eating… “
