...and there she is. I have to say that I spent most of this episode disliking it, which is quite common for the show these days, but I didn't end up there. I was impatient with the artifice of Ted moving to Chicago, dreading the needless drama that's going to happen at Barney and Robin's wedding, frustrated by the manufactured controversy with Marshall taking the judgeship without even talking to Lilly. The last few minutes were shamefully manipulative... but it kind of worked on me. And I don't know why it was good to see Ted's future wife, since we don't know a thing about her yet, but it was nice to *finally* get on with that. Good on them for not dragging that reveal into next year. So I ended up feeling mostly OK about the episode.
