HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Challenge Accepted” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Challenge Accepted” Season 6 Episode 24 – What did you think of tonight’s season finale episode? Did it live up to your expectations? Personally I was a bit disappointed that we never got to see the mother since the season started with the teaser clip of the wedding – I was hoping we’d learn more about the wedding throughout tonight’s episode.

I also felt like the story with Marshall, Lily, and the “food poisoning” was predictable. What I did like is that Ted didn’t end up getting back together with Zoey (thanks to Robin and Barney’s interference) and Lily is finally preggers! I also thought it was really nice of Barney to give the ‘button pushing’ privilege over to Ted.

So tonight was a big night for Marshall and Lily. I wouldn’t be surprised if Marshall gets the job, even though he ignored Lily’s advice and came clean about his ‘food poisoning’ in the job interview. Maybe they will applaud his honesty? It’s also super exciting that they are finally going to have a baby!

Then there is Barney. After him and Robin bonded over ruining Ted’s plan to get back with Zoey, I thought that there might be a chance for them to rekindle something. Since the ending left you to believe that Barney is going to get back with Nora (much to Robin’s dismay by the looks of it), my prediction is that Barney is actually going to marry Robin. What do you think? I guess this means we’ll have to wait until next season (and probably the end of the season at that) to find out more about the wedding and who the mother is.

For me, season 6 of How I Met Your Mother started out strong but fizzled a little bit at the end. Because it’s one of my favorite shows, I think I sometimes hold it to a higher standard than might be fair. What about you? Did you enjoy tonight’s season finale? What were you favorite and least favorite parts? Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts!
