    I hate Victoria too. I was really hoping he would just drop her off at the wedding and they could finally end things.

    I totally missed something.. How did we know it was Barney's wedding? I guess how he was dressed? (I know in previous news articles, we were told it was Barney's wedding.)

    I think my mind blanked out when we found out Robin was the bride.

    I dunno, I thought it was annoying that he "wussed out".. and liked that he carpe diem-ed.

    Now, in real life, I think it would be scummy.. but she probably shouldn't marry her fiance, since she was being wishy washy about it at all.. But in TV-land, happily ever after.

    I've hated Ted for a long time. He's pretentious, doushy, and whiny.

    IIRC, the first part of the scene (where Ted is told that the bride wants to see him) was shown in the first episode of the season and it was made clear that it was Barney's wedding.

    I think they revealed everybody's role in stages throughout the season. The first episode made it unclear if Ted or Barney was the groom.

    I don't remember it that way. I searched around for a recap and found this one. The author also seems very certain that it was Barney's wedding---the question was who was Barney getting married to...

    Second half of what? Did you not watch the whole episode?

    You know that's a very good guess, considering that the kids refer to him as Uncle Barney and Aunt Robin (I think they call them Uncle Marshall and Aunt Lilly, so maybe not)

    I always thought they'd introduce the mom and let us get to know her, but I think I read here or somewhere that it's the last episode? Maybe that was just speculation here.

    As for this episode. I really don't like how they keep rehashing the same things. Ted and Robin, Barney and Robin, we've been through that dance before, and now Ted and Victoria, another rehash. I'd rather they just move forward with new people. I'm not a fan of Barney and Robin together, but I think that's where they are heading (obviously). But I'm guessing early next year we'll find out how Barney and Quinn break up, but I hope it's not ANOTHER whole season leading back to the wedding at the end.

    I look at it this way, if she was so gung ho to marry this guy, she never would have shown up with Ted in the first place, in her wedding dress no less. I think she was looking for an out and Ted gave her one.

    :up:

    It's funny that the people I have the biggest disagreements with on the forum, are probably the people I would like the best if I met them at a meet or something. I think there's a certain amount of respect between debaters. I find it fun and fascinating to argue points of view with people who don't agree with me. You're a good dude :)

    Now back to our regularly scheduled thread. :D

    No. It was split into two half-hour segments for us.

    I don't know. I just don't.


    I don't think that this is Barney and Robin's wedding. I have a suspicion that somehow, these are two different weddings.

    Even though in the season premiere it was Barney's wedding and Lily told Ted that the bride wanted to see him...

    ...and now in the season finale, Lily tells Ted that the bride wants to see him and the bridge is Robin?

    Yeah. It just seems gimmicky somehow.

    I think this is a bit of a flaw in the show. They've thrown us for so many loops throughout the course of the show that even when something appears to be Robin & Barney's wedding, people think its something else.

    Then again, sometimes if it looks like a duck it's just a duck.

    In the first episode, with the door in the bar---I thought the bar had a back door that went out to the alley...
