The Robin

4 Jan

Spoiler Alert!

How I Met Your Mother has been one of my favorite shows for a few years now. Although the show revolves around Ted finding his wife, this season has very much been about Barney.

I’ve been routing for Barney and Robin ever since theydated in Season 5, and broke up because “two awesomes cancel each other out.” This sitcom got serious when Barney planned one of the most convoluted, but romantic proposals I have ever watched. I cried like a baby.

THE PLAY

1.  Admit to yourself that you still have feelings for this girl.

2.  Choose the completely wrong moment to make a drunken move after hanging out at a strip club… and get shot down on purpose.

3.  Agree that you two don’t work, locking the door on any future you could have together, which will drive Robin nuts.

4.  Robin goes nuts.

5.  Find the person who annoys Robin most in the world and ask for her help.  Explain everything to Patrice and hope she agrees to help.

6.  Check with your doctor about possible broken ribs.

7.  Pretend to be dating Patrice.

8.  Wait until Robin inevitably breaks into your place to find The Playbook and show it to Patrice, which you’ll monitor via the hidden cameras you have in your apartment.

9.  After Patrice “finds” The Playbook, have your first “big fight.”

10. Prove your loyalty to Patrice by burning The Playbook, and actually burn it.  You don’t need it anymore.

11. Because your friends have no boundaries, they’ll inevitably have an intervention for Robin, which you’ll monitor via the hidden cameras you have in Marshall and Lily’s apartment.

12. Tell only Ted about your plan to propose to Patrice.

13. Wait and see if Ted tells Robin. And if he does, it means your best bro in the world has let go of Robin and has given you his blessing.

14. Robin arrives at her favorite spot in the city and finds the secret final page of The Playbook… the last play you’ll ever run.

15. Robin realizes she’s standing underneath mistletoe.

16. Hope she says yes.

    i also always always rooted for Robin and Barney! I’m so happy!!! She looked so gorgeous during the proposal. I read in EW about how they started dressing the cast in better clothes. This was a stunning sparkler by Monique Lhullier. Gorg.
