Well, we’re back from summer hiatus and that means getting reacquainted with our fave New York City buddies.
Where we left off: Robin ended her first “real” relationship with Don, Marshall and Lily were ready to make a baby and Ted, well, was nowhere near meeting his future wife.
Cue season six where we start off with a wedding. And Ted in a tux. Hmm. Well, it’s not what you think…
Present-day Ted spots a hot woman at the bar and, after fighting over her with Barney, wants to make his move. Until he spots Cindy with her, the girl he went out with last season and who is the roommate of the titular “mother”. Ted avoids Cindy over the way things ended (i.e. bad) but is surprised when Cindy wants to talk to him and actually thanks him, because him dumping her turned out to be a good thing.
Why? Well, blonde girl at the bar wasn’t Ted’s future wife. Turns out she’s Cindy’s future life partner. Turn’s out Cindy’s breakup with Ted made her reevaluate her life. So Cindy found “the one”, and Ted… not quite yet.
The second storyline of the episode involved Marshall and Lily and their baby-making plans. They’ve got the ambiance and the music, but they’ve also got… a new bassinet? From Marshall’s dad. Lily is livid at the fact that Marshall overshares with his father, and sharing the fact that they’re trying to conceive (cue huge “Good Luck, Marshall!” banner at the law office). They’re too-real fight is resolved when Lily admits she doesn’t want to tell too many people lest their attempts don’t prove fruitful. Meaning, she’s afraid to disappoint him. They apologize and make-up and project baby resumes.
As for Robin and Barney? No plots for them quite yet, save for Robin’s slob chic look since her breakup, which I am sure will be rectified come next week.
Oh, and that wedding? Ted was just a nervous best man. And he’ll be meeting his future wife that very day. Stay tuned.
So, whaddya think? Will Marshall and Lily successfully conceive? We’re you duped into thinking blonde girl at the bar was the “mother”? Whose wedding are they at? Share your thoughts below!
