After I wrote my gushing preview of this episode, I went back and re-watched it, hoping my first impression was correct. It turned out that it was, but for a very different reason than I thought.
The 100th episode of How I Met Your Mother didn't have everything that makes the show such fun for its fans: there was no time-shifting, and not a lot of misdirection. It just told two straight-ahead stories that were really funny and gave us confidence in how things are going to play out going forward.
Oh, and it had a song-and-dance number that was fun as hell.
Let's start with Ted. At the end of this episode, we're as close to the mythical Mother as we've ever gotten. And it we got there in quite an interesting way: he dates a woman who's jealous of her "perfect" roommate. Rachel Bilson did a nice job of playing Cindy, making her vulnerable because of this problem, but not crazy. And it seemed at the start that Cindy could be the mother, when Ted had confiscated beers with her in his classroom, but I'm happy that the magical roommate was brought up right away.
