This being the final season of ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ we knew there would come a time where Robin and Ted put their relationship behind them, for good. Did that ‘Sunrise’ handshake put the final nail in the coffin?
‘HIMYM’: Ted & Robin’s Romantic Trip Down Memory Lane
How I Met Your Mother‘s final season has been a non-stop farewell to the show for fans, and “Sunrise” proved no different. We took a trip down the show’s bumpy memory lane with Ted and Robin, as they strolled down a romantic beach in search for Robin’s missing groom, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). Naturally the conversation eventually turned toward exes, and Ted was as surprised when we were when his longtime love easily named her Top 5 favorite exes (of Ted’s).
So, who made the cut? Stella, Zoe, the slutty pumpkin, Marshall (Jason Segel) from “that time you guys pretended to be a couple when Barney was trying to sell the apartment,” and, of course, the legendary Victoria.
“The pastry chef was the best,” Robin said. “No question.”
Unsurprisingly, the episode featured guest appearances from Stella (Sarah Chalke), Jeanette (Abby Elliot), and Victoria herself (Ashley Williams), which was pretty freaking amazing. We also got to see Marshall and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) working through their many issues — which was a relief — and Barney teaching the comedy duo BriTANick his womanizing ways as he drunkenly ditched his own wedding. (Almost.)
All in all, even though Ted and Robin ended their trip with a handshake, it was still pretty amazing to get the chance to reminisce right along with them.
What did you think of the episode, fellow HIMYM fans? Did you agree with Ted’s “Top 5” list? Were you glad to see his exes? Let us know in the comments!
