ypdating com - Barney and robin dating episodes
Although Robin and Barney are outwardly happy about their relationship, Ted believes that they in fact are miserable.He believes an old message from Barney via an old porn videotape and the fact of both Robin and Barney letting their appearances go (Barney who is overeating and Robin who is looking like an old woman) are cries for help in wanting and needing to break-up.
When their plan goes horrible awry, Lily, the master of orchestrating break-ups without the couple knowing what hit them, feels she has to come and fix the mess Ted and Marshall created.
Lily's masterpiece as she considers it involves Robin's old friend Alan Thicke, one of Barney's old girlfriends, a stormtrooper and a bunch of dirty dishes. I really think this is one of the best episodes of the season so far.
I think the way Robin and Barney's relationship was developed didn't quite fit with what we'd been shown in the previous seasons about these two characters.
Yet, their breakup episode is a genuine example of HIMYM writing team talent, and therefore it must be praised.
Even including such an absurd subplot such as Lily's plan to break them up, it still manages to deliver a somehow believable plot in a candid and funny way.
