How I Met Your Mother - "Unpause" - 1/20/14



"Unpause" - When Barney drinks too much, Ted and Robin take advantage of him and get him to reveal secrets he's been hiding for years. Meanwhile, Marshall does everything he can to avoid fighting with Lily, on the final season of, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, Monday, Jan. 20 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

No. 1 hr Series Finale is March 31st.

Also, I saw this on Warming Glow, but there was a plan on who the mother was, incase the series was cut short in the early days.

Spoiler:
Bays also revealed that they had a contingency plan in place from the beginning in case CBS canceled the series before they got to the mother they always intended Ted to marry: it was going to be Victoria, the baker from Season 1, played by Ashley Williams.

She's just a notch below Raymond.

Barney: "I've had sex in Ted's bed 14 times."
Ted: "I asked if you wear shoulder pads."

EDIT: Loved Barney getting vengeance on the guy that stole his girlfriend.
Narrator: "Kids, I won't bother you with the number, but it was a crapload"
Barney: "About 1 crapload"
Ted: "That much? Aren't you concerned about your future?"
Barney: "Not really, especially since Robin's rich."

Lily is a fucking idiot. She's a thirtysomething Mom, not a college student - playtime is over, and goofing off in Europe for a year is silly. Turning down a judgeship would be crazy.

So if nothing good happens after 2 am, does The Mother die in childbirth?

Better than last week, liked most of the questioning, but the Marshall and Lily parts were flat.

Maybe if the kids were named Luke and Leia.

So, who do you think choose the names? And why Luke and Penny?

I don't remember if Ted is a Stars Wars fan. Maybe Uncle Barney insisted vehemently that the boy should be named Luke. Oh, but Barney always root for the bad guys. So I have no idea then.

Huge... I think was a litmus test for his relationship with Stella (Sarah Chalke) as she had never seen it.

Ted is a Star Wars fan. I assume he named the boy, and the mom got the name the girl?

This. She has a right to be mildly peeved that Marshall didn't tell her, and that she doesn't get her trip to Italy, but in the long run it's the best thing for her family. Of course, this is all written this way because the show is ending in two months. Were this the real world, which does not end in March but instead goes on and on, it's an easy decision. You stay in NY and take that incredible opportunity for your husband to have a lifetime career that provides for your family.

So Barney has been an FBI informant against his company for all these years?

I don't think for ALL the years. He could have just recently ratted.

I think Penny comes from the lucky penny Ted found on the subway several years before?
