I saw those things going on in the background but I didn't realize it was the same couple! That's awesome.

Did you catch them playing hockey with the wig?

Of course, "Ice Rink" was visible under the "Laser Tag" sign.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I remember seeing the crappy laser tag sign on the building and thinking it was just poor production values

But how did Robin walk into that office without realizing she was on the ice? We didn't see any kind of fake hallway when the room was lifted. Did they already take that part away?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

They must have taken the hallway away for the big reveal. I also thought the fake sign was odd and just assumed it was a rushed job on set that they thought no one would notice.

I thought the crappy sign just meant a crappy laser tag building in the middle of nowhere.

Finally a decent episode!
Hopefully it won't be the last one this season.

The running gag about the ring bear.

Did we see Linus this week?

Yeah, this is screaming for a great pay-off.

I liked Lilly's reaction to Ted claiming the wedding gift mastery in the flashback, which would be before they resolved that story earlier.

That was my favorite moment of the episode too. If this show does one thing well, it's continuity. Of course this episode did a lot of things well.

At first I was annoyed at Barney's attitude, sometimes to go for a cheap joke the writer's will write Barney as if he's twelve, but at least this time his annoying attitude had a purpose...and after a while I figured it was too over the top to not be a put on. It wasn't as neat of a reveal as Barney;s proposal, but it was sweet and further proved that these two do make a good couple.

I also liked that we finally saw why Lily is upset about Marshall taking the Judgeship, she believes it means Italy is out of the question. It's very telling of the kind of person Lily is that she believes Marshall's dreams are more important then hers. I wonder if the writers are going to explore this at all.

Since this was the last episode before winter hiatus, I was hoping we'd see the Mother finally show up to the INN, but I suppose you can't have everything.

Slapsgiving 3, coming this January to CBS!

The mother continues to impress and live up to the reputation that was set up for her over the last 8 seasons. I loved how she was messing with Marshall with all that psychic stuff.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Linus deserves to win the lottery in the final episode.

Wait?

The "sequel" is going to be primed by people at this Inn in the final episode.

Is Linus part of the new gang?

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Another excellent episode and one of the better ones this season, for the substantial Mother screen time and her indirect connection to Ted. Also, Darren the Devil was hilarious. And Marshall finally showed up! About time!

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I keep waiting for them to reveal her name. I know it will probably be an episode that is hyped to death so by the time we actually watch it everyone and their (heh) mother will know the name will be finally revealed.

Anyways, I loved the hell out of this episode, I love how Ted's actions indirectly lead to the Mother staying (and Marshall's pep talk, of course). I just love, love, love how it's all falling into place.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Surely we'll get her name in the 200th episode which stars her... There's no way they could do an entire episode from her POV without using her name. Unless they bleep it out like Kill Bill Vol 1

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Great episode. I would say that they couldn't get any closer than that, but we still haven't seen them in the same room together all night at the reception and still never meet. Very glad that Marshall arrived and I'm loving all the callbacks to old stuff. It is only going to get better and batter from here on out.
