HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: With the good comes the bad

I wouldn’t say that tonight’s How I Met Your Mother was a classic. We met Barney’s doppelgänger in the form of Lily and Marshall’s fertility doctor, Robin came into contact with the odious Sandy Rivers at her new job (and we got a montage of Robin’s humiliations over the years), and Ted… well he pretty much stayed on the sidelines for this one. But that last scene, Marshall rushing out of MacLaren’s to share his good news with Lily (his boys can swim) only to be confronted with the fact that his father has suddenly died… wow. Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan were heartbreaking, and while the episode itself came and went, the image of Lily and Marshall holding each other, crying, might be one of the most moving moments of the entire series.
