Storyline

Quotes

The Mother: Hey, are you okay? You look stressed. Plus, you muttered a few words out loud. I heard "lonely" and "unicorn", which actually gave me a great idea for a children's book, so... thank you. Are you okay?
Lily Aldrin: No, but there's nothing you can do.
The Mother: Do you wanna cookie?
[Offers a container of cookies]
Lily Aldrin: Yes... yes I do!
[Grabs a cookie]
The Mother: Whoa! You just took a cookie from a complete stranger on a train. I like how trusting you are. There could be drugs or poison in there.
Lily Aldrin: [With her mouth full] But there's not, is ...

The beginning of an end
24 September 2013 | by Den-CallananSee all my reviews

Just a quick summation of Season 8:

I personally thought season 8 was the most inferior in comparison to the rest of the seasons. Saying that, it was still quite enjoyable and a few exceptions stood out from the rest of the episodes. So I would have agreed that it's time to start finishing up the series on a good note while still possible.

This episode was indeed a nice start to the final season. It definitely evoked some of the old HIMYM laughter I've been absent from for the last few months.

We finally get an insight on the future Mrs. Mosby's character and I can imagine most viewers will be satisfied.

A new complication has arisen between Barney and Robin, briefly placing an obstacle in the way of their sexual relationship.

There were quite a few amusing scenarios in the episode, leading to humorous spectacles as always. Every character has an important role to play in this episode, a nice way to begin the season and to recap previous complexities.

All in all, I'm very satisfied. In a comical humor again with this series being back on air and have high hopes that this season will accomplish the positive closure it deserves.
