I don't even know how to feel about this episode. Even after talking to Phoe, Snogged, and Vim about it I don't know. I feel 10 different emotions at once.







1. Happy - CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT MY GOD! This episode was like "Benefits" and "Drumroll, Please" wrapped in a delicious, heartbreaking 30-minute segment.
2. Betrayed - BAYSTHOMAS WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG TO DO THIS!? I HATE YOU!!
3. Enthralled - Josh Radnor, your voice is like honey.
4. Confused - That song could have been better integrated into the show...
5. Jubilant - HEY GUYS IT'S THE GUYS BEING CALLED ON WHAT DOUCHES THEY'VE BEEN! ESPECIALLY BARNEY THANK GOD!
6. Incandescent with rage - I freaking HATE Don. You will NEVER get me to ship them. Don't make me break out my anti-Don icon.
7. Gleeful - Marshall & Lily singing the "Bang" song! ADORABLE!
8. Vindicated - Barney and Robin's breakup actually being addressed? Thank you!
9. On edge - Hoping against hope Barney would stick to his promise to Robin. Will he be a horndog next episode and completely cancel out this episode's progress?
10. ???? - I still don't know how to feel. Robin/Don? Barney sticking to his promise and acting like a person? BARNEY'S LITTLE FACE AT THE END!?!?!? Too many feelings to sort out there.

I thought the writing was superb on this episode. I thought everyone was really on... I just wish all of the episodes this season were like this.

*uses anti-Don icon out of solidarity*

This actually sums up my feelings toward the episode pretty well. Although personally, I liked that Josh's song didn't fit in with the episode very well. I think the whole idea was that it was supposed to be out-of-place. And it was just so AWESOME that I didn't mind much.

And I'm not sure horndog Barney is gone for good, since he only promised her he wouldn't sleep with J-Lo. But I hope he at least starts showing more sensitivity toward her.

*bashes Don in the face once more for good measure*

I think you nailed the emotional gauntlet of this episode right on the head.

*hugs*

Stupid Don.

You know what's great though? When was the last time this show MADE us feel so many emotions all at once? Exactly. Way too long. So well done, HIMYM. Thanks for making us all feel crazy and mixed up again, instead of just giving us a few short "hahas" every week once again.

*uses Ted icon for epic Ted love*

Just concentrate on all the homoerotic tension between the REAL OTP...

Barney and Ted of course!

The show wants to ram it down our throats that Robin has human emotions and has "moved on" from Barney, and that we should ship Robin/Don. Who CARES?

Barney/Ted 4EVA!

Yeah, I don't really have too many thoughts about Don in this episode... we really didn't seen him or why they are supposed to be "good" together at all in this ep. I don't know if I should care about that or not.

OH WELL, I actually enjoyed almost everything about this episode, and it's been ages since that happened. Yay.

These emotions are causing MINDSPLOSIONS! People are having reactions again, and I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FEEL. Or whether to watch again. I'M SO AFRAID.

Yep, you've pretty much said it. The only thing I would add is Heartbroken because Cobie crying is the saddest thing ever.

You are so right. Robin being sad always makes me sad too :(

PS How gorgeous was she last night, am I right??
