As CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” nears its end, questions still linger among the viewers. When will the last slap happen? When will Ted ever meet “The Mother”? The show will get there. However, in the meantime, read on for the “How I Met Your Mother: Season 9 “The End of the Aisle” episode recap.
Previously on “How I Met Your Mother” (“The End of the Aisle” air date: March 24, 2014), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) panicked about their upcoming wedding in less than an hour. Robin tried escaping through the window, just like what Victoria (Ashley Williams) did during her wedding day. Robin wished that Barney would find her locket as a sign of his dependability. Ted (Josh Radnor) took her locket, which he recovered from the river, and gave it to Barney. He asked Barney to take credit for finding it.
However, Robin recalled Barney’s dishonesty and considered running away with Ted. Ted was smart enough now to realize that they are different and that Robin should end up with Barney. Still, Robin wanted to run away. She tried to escape and crashed with the band’s bass player. And this was how Robin met “The Mother.”
Meanwhile, Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) tried to calm Barney. What truly concerned Barney was the fact that he was trying to write his vows. Lily pointed out to Barney how selfish his vows were. He got back to Lily by pointing out that she and Marshall have broken their vows lots of times. Soon they realized that Barney was right and decided to renew their vows at the altar.
Robin apologized to “The Mother” upon crashing on her. Since they were strangers at that time, “The Mother” did not convince Robin to stay but instead to take three deep breaths. Then, Barney found Robin and told her his vows. He promised to be honest with her from that moment on and admitted that Ted found her locket.
Finally, the last slap happened while Barney was at the altar. The couple also got a bear as a ring bearer and a gorilla as a flower girl.
