So disappointed that Robin marries Barney. I must admit that I loved that Barney fell for her, but I really wanted Robin to be the "mother" Not sure if I am going to be so keen to watch from now on

Wonderful episode(s) I'm happy for Ted that he got back with Victoria but i'm a little confused as to why he accepted to ''steal'' Victoria from another man after all he should know better than anyone how it feels to be left at the altar, anyway i don't think things are going to work out for these two even tough i'd like Victoria to be the mother the writers made it perfectly clear that she's not.. anyway Barney & Quinn i'm loving these two together and was soched at the proposal but more shocked at the end to see that the bride was actually Robin, so many twists and turns are waiting for these two, and finally Lily and Marshall become parents, i'm looking forward to see how are they going to handle being responsible parents and stay close with the group. It was a good season and i'm looking forward to an even better season 8! It's going to be a long summer!

Watched the season finale last night and couple of things came to mind. 1. Coolest middle name ever Marv! 2. Good to see Victoria come back, surely she's the one for Ted, but I fear not as he says that he met the mother at Uncle Barney's wedding. do we know if she owned a yellow umbrella or plays bass in a reggae band? 3. as much as I love the Barnstormer and But Um Schabotsky part of me felt a bit ripped off that she was the bride. On one hand they both found what they were looking for but on the other hand, I thought Quinn was perfect to match Barney's non standard approach to relationships. There was more story to go with both of them help each other move towards that "utopia" that Lilly and Marshall seem to have. Curious to see how season 8 starts as Barney's wedding was a long way down the road so ep 1 of season 8 will have us back up the road and we will have to watch Barney back out of his engagement and rekindle his relationship with Robin. And hopefully more clues about the mother will be revealed.
