HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Last Words” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Last Words” Season 6 Episode 14 – So what did you think of tonight’s episode? After the last episode where Marshall’s father died, I was eagerly anticipating tonight’s show to see how Marshall and the gang was holding up after the terrible news. I felt like this was another outstanding episode of How I Met Your Mother.

Marshall: First off, I didn’t know there was a Crocodile Dundee 3, but I looked it up and it’s true! Has anybody out there seen it? I thought Marshall held up well during the funeral and I was so happy that he got some nice final words from his dad. I thought the bit about Trey the school bully was a bit unnecessary and didn’t add much to the story – what did you think? Of all the “last words” from Marshall’s dad my favorite was “Plane food is ass”. So true.

Lily: I felt like this was an important episode for Lily as she was finally able connect with Marshall’s mom, Judy. Maybe they can start over with each other. My favorite line from all the Lily/Judy exchanges was “That dress makes you look like a Kansas City whore”.

Barney: I don’t mean to brag, but I totally called it. After seeing how short life can be Barney is now ready to meet his real father. I can’t wait to see where this goes. I hope Barney’s dad is exactly like him – a suit wearing, smooth talking, ladies man. What do you think he’ll be like?

Robin: Robin played the role of “vice girl” exceptionally well. I also thought her drug references to Marry Poppins were hilarious and totally true when you think about it. Robin doesn’t seem as close to Marshall and she does with some of the others and I thought it was cool that she found a special way to be there for him in his time of need – even if it did involve getting his 15 year old cousin drunk.

Ted: I actually expected a little more from Ted in helping to console Marshall. We can expect Barney to resort to laughter, but I was hoping for something bigger from Ted as he is usually so emotional.

Although it was another serious episode of HIMYM, I still enjoyed it very much. Although, I have to admit that I hope its a bit lighter next week. Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, “Last Words”!
