HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “The Mermaid Theory” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “The Mermaid Theory”” Season 6 Episode 11 – What did you think of tonight’s episode? I’m so happy they brought back The Captain! I enjoyed “The Mermaid Theory” quite a bit, so let’s dive in and talk about each character (oh, and if you happen to be a single male reading this review with your married female friend, make sure you aren’t in a place with any candles!):

Marshall: I loved his picture of The Captain, and it was so true. I was surprised that his dinner with Robin was so awkward and I was relieved at the end of the night when she didn’t turn into a mermaid. For all you men out there that are reading this, is the mermaid theory true? Have you ever worked with a manatee that turned into a mermaid?

Lily: So I guessed right away that Lily was pregnant but I was hoping it was in real time. I’m sick of all these future flash forwards, what is this, the final season of Lost? Hurley was a good idea, but I am not liking these flash forwards one bit. Once again Lily provided some great pearls of wisdom when she laid out her rules for single men hanging out with married women. Do you think Ted and Zoey will break more of the rules in the future?

Robin: I was hoping tonight would include some flirting with Robin and Barney so I was disappointed the high point was Robin getting drunk and throwing up on her feet lol. I did think it was sweet that she bonded with Marshall though. Also, I found it very hard to believe that Marshall would look at a beautiful girl like Robin and see a manatee. What do you think?

Barney: Best quote of the night, “When those things swell up to 3 times their size, so do I!”. I wonder what on earth Barney does to Ted in the future that makes him have to put on a ladies green dress to get even? I also wonder when we are going to find out more about Barney’s dad. Lots to look forward to!

Ted: So Ted and Zoey both deny having feelings for each other but I think they are both kidding themselves. Where do you think this is headed? I think the two of them would make a cute couple, but I also think The Captain is awesome and I can’t see Zoey leaving him. Here’s my prediction, The Captain will have a freak boating or hunting accident which will take him out the picture. Ted will be there as a friend to Zoey and it will turn into something more. What is your prediction?

I can’t wait for next week’s episode but I hope there are no more flash forwards! As always, please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, “The Mermaid Theory”.
