Ted's Building; Exterior: Saget!Ted narrates that Barney finally gave Robin the Super Date she deserved. And thank goodness it's not with him, because I would have had to go out and buy a Storm Trooper helmet, to accommodate the symptoms of a double-barrel stomach virus. It's Don (Saget!Ted describes him as "A guy she truly deserved"), in the carriage with her.
MacLaren's: Of Course Barney's "no" turns J.Lo into a submissive, sniveling puddle of a woman, who is more Team Self than Team Robin, and all too ready to abandon her standards and sleep with Barney even before dinner, never mind a predetermined number of dates. Barney keeps turning her down, so she turns to Ted and asks, "How about you? You interested?" Ted rasps out a, "Yeah!" But J.Lo can't let go of the Barnacle. Her final proposition is so dirty, she has to whisper it in his ear, and we never have to hear what it is. Thank goodness for small favors. Barney keeps his promise to his friend, though. Whoop-de-doo. He rises, slips past J.Lo, walks calmly, if quickly, out of the bar (I was expecting that flaily-y run, weren't you) and down the street.
Riverfront: When Barney gets the to river, he dives right over the fence and the "No Diving" sign affixed to it. We jump forward to him giving his interview to the Police Officer we met during the cold open. She issues him a $500.00 ticket for jumping in the river. "I hope it was worth it." Not if he didn't drown, officer, no. Just then, fireworks light up the Manhattan skyline. Barney looks up at them and we cut to Robin and Don, watching the same scene. They look at each other. We cut back to Barney who says to no one in particular, "I hope so, too." And then, Robin and Don kiss.
