#HIMYM S07E23/E24 – “The Magicians Code Part 1/2”
Marshall and Barney are still in Atlantic City when Lily goes into labour. As they try to find a way back to Manhattan in time for the birth, Ted and Robin try to keep Lily’s mind occupied.
As Barney’s wedding draws nearer, he, Robin, Lily and Marshall look back on the time they encouraged Ted to take a chance on a girl he let get away from him.
Three big stories coming out of the finale. The first being the birth (and middle name) of Lily and Mashall’s baby boy, Marvin Waitforit Eriksen. Their story concerned Marshall getting back from Atlantic City to be there for the birth of the child, of course he made it, by the skin of his teeth, thanks t some old people on a bus he and Barney managed to get onto.
The second being Ted, after most of the season, becoming friends with Robin again, only for her to tell him about himself. How he always seemed to pick the wrong girl to e the one. Case in point, Robin – Not wanting marriage. Stella – already had a child. Zoey – already married. Robin put it into Ted’s head that Victoria was the one for him. But failed to mention how she was any better than any of the decisions she had made, i.e. she was going to get engaged the last time they met. Ted taking the advice to heart, called Victoria and realised that it was her wedding day. He drove her to her wedding, he couldn’t be with her because he knew what it was like to be left at the altar, only to change his mind, and ride of into the sunset together. Personally, I think Victoria was the best girl for him. But you know she isn’t going to be the mother. But it stands to reason, that the one who got away, should be the last one that he has to try it with before meeting the mother.
The last story was finding out that Barney was marrying Robin. The story concerned him proposing to Quinn. Thing about this story is you knew it probably wouldn’t be Quinn, because the actress has a new show starting in the fall, so she probably wont be on HIMYM that much, if at all. Also Barney and Robin are kinda perfect for each other, they just have to both get over their neurosis before they can be together. Barneys on his way there, but proposing to Quinn, you know he’s starting to come round to the idea of settling down, and Robin, well, she gonna have to start getting over her neurosis as well, probably in the next season.
HIMYM has one more season, if it gets picked up again we don’t know yet. But I’d like to know as soon as, so we can know for definite if next year is the last. We know that Ted meets the mother at Barneys wedding, so we know that is how it will end, hopefully, with him just meeting the mother, and it ending. I don’t think we need to go through the whole courtship; just meeting should be enough with a montage of everything past then.
ALSO on a sidenote, how many HIMYM fans are gonna have waitforit as a middle name for their kids now?
