    Quick notes for now.

    Robin's new hair makes her look butch.

    In HD I can tell that Alyson Hannigan has keratosis pilaris on her upper arms, or something that looks a lot like it. I guess that's why she doesn't wear sleeveless shirts that much.

    Loved it when Ted told his kids the story had a lot more to go. Also like Edward 40 Hands.

    And it's great that they've finally started the baby stuff.

    But Ted's plots were annoying and boring, he's just going around in circles.

    Barney's Nora plot is just wasting our time. We know how this ends.

    And holy crap, Victoria is back! She's the only girl out all the ones that Ted has dated that I've liked. Interested to see where this goes.

    I thought this was going to be another "Ted is a jerk" episodes until the last few minutes and Victoria laid down a major reality bomb for him. The dynamic between him, Barney, and Robin is going to eventually collapse if Ted intends to truly get into a real relationship. It's actually kind of funny how the last two seasons that issue has been floating around (remember how Don intially reacted and how this susequently led to Robin temporarily moving out of Ted's apartment). Victoria made it clear that the way things currently are are just not going to work out.

    To me this sounds like this will ultimately come to fruition in Season Eight since we already know that this Season's arc is focused on Barney's "mystery bride". We also know that they seem to be all together up until that point (with Robin conviently absent) but I get the feeling that the events of this wedding may get the snowball rolling for Season Eight's events. If the fallout happened this season it would make most of the next season hard to watch since the show heavily relies on the group dynamic. I also seriously doubt this will happen since we also have Marshall and Lily's "baby arc" also taking place.

    Still, this episode was a good setup for the series finale with a major event being forshadowed for the final season.

    Marshall's boss plot was a little depressing. He finally gets his dream job and his boss has the most pessimistic viewpoint, sure that change towards the end but still...

    Barney's obsession with Ewoks was hilarious. Someplace, somewhere there's a STAR WARS fan trying to screencap Barney's slideshow just to see if the details were accurate.:D

    I kind of had this odd feeling that Robin was going to end up dating her therapist. Usually if they cast someone who is around the same age that's usually how these things develop (also because this kind of happened in a movie I recently saw). But wait...wasn't this all because Robin's theraphy was court mandated? That in and of itself is weird.

    Ted...Seven Seasons and this is the first time we see him with a 5 o clock shadow the entire episode (I don't count the Robin breakup beard). Wonder what was going on behind the scenes that the actor couldn't shave for this episode (Unless this is an "in show" thing, but I doubt it)?

    CBS is on it.

    I don't know, I think it's for the show. It was just too in-your-face to be incidental. Maybe he's growing it out intentionally to look more "professor-y" or something.

    Wow, no comments? The return of the Slap Bet? Barney accepting three more Slaps? Marshall dropping him twice? A tree fell on Ted's house and didn't flatten the gang because they weren't there? Barney & Robin sittin' in a tree, K-i-s-s-i-n-g?

    The only reason I can think of that this episode hasn't gotten any comments is that everyone's too floored by the "2.5 Men" episode that followed it.

    This episode really wanted me to ship Barney/Ted. Those two are just so freakin' cute together. Wow. Robin dropped a bomb. This adds another layer to Barney's mystery wedding because we know it can't be with Nora and now there's the slight possibility it will end up being a "shotgun wedding".
