Lily DID get pregnant during the hurricane - the "food poisoning" and reveal that she was pregnant was in September (despite the episode actually airing in May).

Damn, I feel stupid. Mental note to self - go to bed at a decent hour and don't try to think too hard (or at ALL) at 12:30am.
Don't feel stupid, I was utterly confused about this too... glad that there was an explanation!

Doesn't he still work for GNB? His office has always looked the same, so I thought he was still there...

That part about the kid did confuse me, so maybe I missed something in the first few minutes.

I'm growing increasingly weary of this show in general, but that was a pretty great episode.

Shit, man. That was fucking real.

Really heartbreaking stuff, I felt. This season's going along pretty damn well. Very interested to see how it pans out. I know Barney's been heading more and more towards being a decent guy in the past couple of years, but I didn't think we'd ever see him do something as brave as that only to be undercut and left out on the edge.

Pretty bummed Ted didn't go talk to Barney at the end though.

Pretty much. I'm really rooting for them to get together.

Kevin's line about "some things shouldn't be talked about" or whatever he was saying in the hospital really annoyed me. I know it fits the storyline, but I don't really think a therapist would say something like that.

Sandy Rivers always cracks me up. And good for the continuity people to call smoking pot "eating a sandwich." When there was a big pause, I was worried for a second that they would call it something different.

I liked Kevin's line and I think it's something a therapist would say: Just because you want to get something off your chest to make yourself feel better doesn't mean what you have to say is of any benefit to the person hearing it, it could actually hurt them.

Two Community stars last night. Todd (sitting next to Ted) and the janitor (singer).

The security footage was a hoot.

Also props to NPH. Great acting.

I thought the Ted/Marshall storyline was really lame ... until the security camera footage, and then I laughed pretty hard.

exactly. in fact, i was reading a book (not a self-help book or anything, though this excerpt sure makes it sound like it!) that said the same thing and in fact used a cheating spouse as an example. the cheater feels great, they got it off their chest. but the cheated now feels like shit and has to carry that around with them forever.

though i'm not sure i like the prospect of barney and robin together again. i really didn't like them together the first time, but who knows.

I read a random comment in the net that said the first time they were together, it wasn't taken seriously, by them or the writers. Now, it seems it is. I think they will end up together (though how non-sitcom would it be if they didn't!!) but it's going to be an interesting second half.

I reckon this is the most I've been into this show since season four

Nice episode. Kinda got a little spoiled, but it really didn't matter.
I was reading up on some continuity stuff, and at one point (in season one, I think) Future Ted says that Robin moves to a bunch of different countries. I wonder if they will be getting into that any time soon.
I do think that Robin will ultimately end up with Barney, but it's going to be a while. Hopefully he and Ted will have a chat about what happened sometime soon. (And we will move forward with meeting the mother )

Wow, after tonight, I feel like they are racing to the finish. I seem to remember discussion of a known end to the show---are they on for one more season, or am I wrong. I can now totally imagine an ending to this season & then the heart of what takes place next season..
