How I Met Your Mother
It took all season, but Barney and Robin FINALLY got married! It also took all season for Robin to get cold feet and reconsider whether Ted is the better person for her. The argument could be made that it took nine seasons for her to consider that idea as a serious option, but I won’t go there.
After Barney gives her the locket she and Ted were digging for in Central Park, it occurs to her that Barney wouldn’t have gone through all that trouble to find it, let alone know where to start, and she talks to Ted. Ted admits that he told Barney to lie to her, and she starts wondering if everything she has ahead of her with Barney is going to be based on lies.
Barney is not a very honest person in general and has been the poster child for liars for a long time, but when it comes to Robin, he has his head on straight. In the meantime, Barney has been working on his vows, and he and Marshall and Lily get into a debate over wedding vows as he points out that the couple has broken most of the vows they made to each other when they got married.
Robin gets ready to make a run for it when she runs into the Mother. She doesn’t get talked down, but she gets delayed just long enough for Barney to find her and tell her the vow he really wants to make. He explains how even though Marshall and Lily have broken most of their idealistic vows over the years, they’re still the best and strongest couple he knows, and that has to count for something.
So, he doesn’t want to make a bunch of empty promises. He just wants promise to tell her the truth no matter what, because he knows that’s been their biggest sticking point, and he doesn’t want to screw this up, ever.
I cried a little at the wedding, and a little at Barney’s vow, but I have a feeling I’m going to be a mess next week. I just got through one series finale (Psych) on Wednesday, and having another one coming up next Monday for this show is going to be that much more difficult.
2 Broke Girls
After learning that the pastry school has been closed because Chef Nicholas has moved back to France to be with his wife, Deke decides to get his parents involved and have them take over the school so it can remain open.
Max and Caroline go with him to his parents’ fancy apartment where “the elevator opens into the apartment!” Max exclaims, and meet them for the first time. Caroline isn’t intimidated at all–it’s not her boyfriend’s family and she’s comfortable around wealthy people and used to how they interact–but Max gets super-nervous and starts sweating and saying things even she wouldn’t normally say.
Seeing how nervous she is, Deke’s mom talks to Max and explains that she wasn’t always rich and came from nothing too. In fact, she used to be a stripper. Max seems to calm down a little after hearing this, but after the neighbors turn up for dinner and start insulting Caroline once they find out who her father is, Max gets up and makes a scene. She stands up for her friend, and for poor people everywhere, and takes off. Deke at first tries to get her to calm down, but it seems he has a change of heart and decides to take her side after her speech.
At this point, his parents have threatened to cut him off, and give him an ultimatum, his inheritance and financial support, or his girlfriend. While Deke takes a little time to consider it, and chooses Max, Max decides she can’t be the person who “ruins his life” and takes something so huge away from him, so she and Caroline decide to push his Dumpster from Brooklyn to the Upper East Side so he can make up with his parents.
Joe is already making an impression his followers. While some of them are wholly ready to commit to him as their new leader, others are reticent and he says of course, if they don’t agree with the new course the group is on, they should be allowed to go. But, not really. They are captured and put in lock-up, for now, unbeknowst to the rest of the group.
Emma has a talk with Mandy, nearly threatening her and demanding her allegiance to Joe, but Mandy, perhaps a little surprisingly, holds her. She sneers right back at Emma, pointing out her connection with Joe and his affection for her, and reminds, or perhaps reveals, that Emma’s not “the only one who killed her mother”.
Ryan seems to be back in control on the Joe Carroll investigation with the FBI. After Jana, Mendez, the stunt at the bookstore, and Joe’s video, I don’t blame them for bringing him back in.
While Ryan is getting closer to Carrie, who’s in protective custody but has her detail bring her to Ryan’s place more than once, Mike talks to Claire, who’s definitely still alive. Apparently, she had to fake her death and go into Witness Protection, and has been in hiding all this time. But she’s ready to talk, ready to show herself, and ready to confront Ryan.
After finding out that Joe is still alive and still on his same murderous path, she doesn’t see the point of staying hidden anymore and she wants to talk to Ryan and tell him the truth.
I’m so glad she’s alive! I love Natalie Zea, and while it’s fun to see her in other places, like Under the Dome and Justified from time to time, I much prefer it when I get to see her every week! I’m not clear if she’s back for good, or she’s going to be killed off for real the next time, but I’ll take what I can get.
George takes Norma to another event Christine is having, though Norma is still visibly upset over her admission to Dylan about his parentage. Norman looks a little jealous–not worried, jealous–when he meets his mother’s date, but nothing for it now.
Dylan is still reeling from the news that he’s a child of incest, and lashes out at Norma again, claiming she used him to snare her husband at she a young age, and used him to escape her situation rather than stand up for herself. While that’s easy for him to say, and there may some truth to it, I think Norma has a point.
At that age, being younger and vulnerable and less powerful–both physically and socially–than her brother and being terrified of their father, what could she have done? Yes, she wanted to get out and maybe she saw her baby as the only way to do that, but in such a situation, calling in the authorities might have just made matters worse and caused her to suffer even more at the hands of the men in her family who would have then been angry at her for telling on them. She seemed not to have many friends, and so finding a friend’s family to take her in seems unlikely as well.
Maybe she did use Dylan a little bit, but it was with all the best possible intentions. She wanted a better life for herself, and I’m sure also for the unborn child she was going to have as well, so she did what she had to to get out of there.
