No thread? Back to an episode without the mother, which is disappointing. Overall so-so. The main good thing was the part where Ted finally lets Robin go (although the floating away was dumb). Interesting last week the mother let go of her previous love, and this week Ted did, so they are now both "ready" to meet each other. While the Barney stuff was ok, I did kind of like the end with him giving his final advice to the two guys, esp the part about it's not legendary unless your friends are there. And while I didn't much care for the Marshall/Lilly stuff, I am curious how they did the "young" Lilly scenes.
