Ted and Robin discuss his best and worst exes, and he finally finds out who has the locket that Robin went digging for in Central Park. It’s the crazy ex who threw his stuff out of his apartment and wouldn’t let him break up with her.
With guest appearances from Sarah Chalke and Victoria (no idea who plays her and I’m not going to look it up), this was sort of a fun look back at all the women Ted’s dated over the years. Plus, it looks like Ted is finally ready to let Robin go, meaning the mother ought to make her way in pretty damn soon!
Marshall continues his and Lily’s fight with the “ghost” Lily. Though he feels he won, since she will agree to stay in New York instead of moving to Italy as they’d planned, ghost Lily makes a good point that if he continues making decisions without her, keeping secrets, and playing at their marriage and their life like it’s a win or lose game, he’s going to lose her. I think she got through to him, and though their marriage is extremely laid back and fun, the competition can and will take its toll, especially since he tends to take it way more seriously than she does.
Barney gives the playbook, which only remains on hundreds of Post-its, to a couple of new young friends, and teaches them how to be awesome like him. He teaches them the “Haaaaaave you met… [name]?” play, and how to get a really nice suit, among other things.
I am curious to see if these two turn out to be players in the new spinoff, How I Met Your Father, because continuing the playbook and the legend of Barney Stinson would be pretty fun.
Though Max is ready to break up with Deke, he wants to find a way to keep them together, so he gives her a million dollars. Not kidding. Max tries to go on a spending spree, buying gifts for people she knows, and some she doesn’t, she only puts a dent of about $140 into the million.
Caroline is ecstatic over her and Max’s new good fortune, but after Max tries to give the money back, more than once, she realizes that it was short-lived and eventually, she’ll realize it’s for the better because Max was ready to give up on her cupcake business since she’d never have to work again with money like that, and that’s no good for either of them.
May I just say, whoever is coordinating the music this season: bravo. A dark, haunting version of “Stand By Me” plays as Joe and Amanda set her mom’s property ablaze, and it gave me some goosebumps, not gonna lie.
Oh, speaking of which, after Amanda’s mom tries to kill Joe, he starts to revert to killer mode, and at first, Amanda stops him, but later, she learns it’s already getting easier to kill people. She realizes that she can finally escape the little life and the little town she thought she was doomed to remain in, and she idolizes Joe, just like all his other followers, so it was kind of an easy choice for her. She may not be as bright as Emma, but blind loyalty makes her a definite asset to him.
But the big reveal was Lily, she’s one of Joe’s followers! Or perhaps, just an admirer, but still, she’s one of the bad guys! I figured this out part of the way through the episode before Ryan and Mike did, but I should have known–she was too perfect-looking and squeaky clean to be a real love interest for Hardy. The bigger reveal, which wasn’t all that surprising either, is that Lily is the twins’ mother. Dun, dun, dun! Whatever.
One of the twins, the one with the emo/hipster hair, not the Elvis wannabe (yeah, I don’t know their names yet, cut me some slack), has a crush on Emma, and brings her in, taking Carlos’s place. The French girl and the other twin are concerned, but no matter what, Emma is going to be helpful to them, so they should just suck it up. As bad as she is, I still kind of like her. She’s got that love-to-hate-her thing going.
Mike discovers Ryan’s little batcave of Carroll investigation stuff, and demands his help and to stop playing vigilante, but Agent Mendez (Valerie Cruz) isn’t buying it. She doesn’t want Hardy anywhere near the investigation unless he’s prepared to play ball, all in (mixing metaphors is fun :).
That’s just about the time Ryan works out that Lily’s one of Joe’s followers/admirers, and it looks like Mendez is going to have to work with him after all. Joe’s followers love screwing with Hardy almost as much as Joe himself does, so I don’t think they’ll be leaving him out of it anytime soon.
That little dipshit prison guard did it up right this time, planting a shiv in Ava’s bunk, even wounding himself with it, to get her in trouble, right before she’s about to be released, too. I’m not sure if the motive was just revenge for making a fool out of him, or if he’s got a connection at the state penitentiary to be able to harrass her there as well. Boyd is livid, to say the least.
And can we *please* say how totally hardcore badass awesome Alan Tudyk was as the new bad guy, Elias Marcos?? Art matches him, move for move, but this isn’t Alan Tudyk Wash-style, this is Alan Tudyk Alpha-style. Batshit crazy and not afraid of anything or anyone that might stand in the way of his own goals and ends.
The Crowes are trying to get the pretty sister to relocate to Kentucky, but she’s not having it.
This episode was primarily focused on the Canadians, Wynn Duffy, Boyd, the Crowes, and their various illegal enterprises. Boyd and Darryl meet, and I would say Boyd came out of that one on top. Marcos may have backed down from Art, but I highly doubt that’s the last we’ve seen of him. Oh, if Marcos and Wynn Duffy teamed up, Boyd would have some serious shit to deal with, not to mention what Raylan and the marshals would have to deal with!
Boyd gets his sheriff problem taken care of, the old man he almost killed is really dead now, and the guy’s eastern European wife blackmail thing looks to be resolved soon as well. everything looks like it’s working out until Ava gets transferred just before her release.
Semi-related sidenote: They’re really starting to hype The Americans season two premiere, and though they’ve hardly given anything away, I gotta say, I’m excited. It’ll be fun to see those two crazy ex-Soviets back in action.
I am a little upset that I missed Agents of SHIELD for the first time this season, but I had fun at book club, so I guess it’s ok. I may use my free Hulu Plus week, which I still haven’t used, despite being on Hulu for over two or three years now, so I can get it sooner, but I may wait to see how far behind I get by the weekend to see if it’s worth it.
A new Psych, Nashville, and Men at Work air Wednesday night, as well as The Tomorrow People and Chicago PD. I will catch up with those later, but remember, I’ll only be posting on The Tomorrow People and not CPD for a while.
