Just when I thought Ted had finally let go of Robin, How I Met Your Mother dove right back in to scrape up his last remaining feelings in “Band or DJ.”
With Robin and Barney officially engaged for over three days, Ted and Lily were already in place to battle over the role of official wedding planner. The major debate boiled down to the question of a band or a DJ at the wedding. As expected, both Ted and Lily took their quest for victory to typical HIMYM extremes.
Of course, for Ted, the band became a metaphor for Robin’s decision to marry Barney. When Ted first started mumbling about his frustration with Robin’s decision to be with Barney, I groaned, not wanting to return to this irritating cycle. I had thought we were past all this, but clearly Ted hadn’t closed the book on Robin when he sent her off to meet Barney at the top of that tower.
