When we return, Meg is approaching Barney, who is telling Lily to find a metal briefcase under his bed and throw it in the East River. Before Barney can offer an excuse, Meg says it was all her fault. She thinks she came on too strong. Barney forgives her. "I love you," he tells her. "Oh my God, I love you TOO!" she says and they kiss. Lily is disgusted. She tries to break up the action. She's not the one, Lily says. Before she can get an apology out of Barney, he's already halfway down the block.
Next bracket woman: Anna from The Village. Barney and Lily are at a restaurant to find the woman he fooled into thinking he was Ted in the "Ted Mosby, Architect" episode. Barney reminds Lily how the woman had a webcam and a T-1 line. Lily remembers and says that still doesn't count as a Christmas present. Anna is serving coffee, which excites Lily because it might get thrown in Barney's face. She takes a photo of Barney and says, "I'm making a scrapbook." Anna recognizes Barney as Ted Mosby and says that she's not taking down the Web site. What Web site? "TedMosbyisajerk.com," she says. Maybe you should save this for the end of the episode, but the Web site is amazing and there's a 20-minute song by Anna (presumably the actress, Dawn Olivieri) that you must listen to all the way through. It is absolute genius. Please have her come back and perform part of the song on the show. Kthxbai! Barney goes along with it and says he deserves the scorn. He gets up on a table and announces that Ted Mosby is a jerk to women. He wants them to tell everyone to stay away from Ted Mosby. He announces the Web site URL. SagetTed says that the Web site went on to get 400,000 hits. "Thanks Barney," he says. We get a brief screenshot of the site, which is ugly, but still worth your time.
Next name: Kate from Midtown. Barney and Lily arrive at an apartment door. "Which one is this again?" Lily asks. A blonde opens the door and yells, "Larney!" She starts strangling Barney. Got it. Lily takes a photo for her scrapbook.
Last name on the brackets: Holly from Brooklyn. Lily and Barney walk down the street. Barney's neck is a little injured. Barney was hoping it wouldn't be Holly. We flash back to Barney leaving the woman in the woods and stealing her truck. The woman hears a puma growl as he drives away. She hides in her tent. Lily thinks it's the worst thing anyone has ever done. Barney thinks she was annoying. Holly answers her door and so does her fiancĂ©e, Mark, who is wearing a suit and looks a bit like Phil Hartman, sadly. He asks if Barney was the person who ditched her in the woods. Instead of being mad, the couple invites them in for coffee. They're just happy to have found each other and Mark thinks that Barney must have been what got Holly to stop sleeping around with guys like him. Turns out the timing is a bit off: they started dating in June and the Barney thing happened on a 4th of July. Oops! Busted!
