Even on How I Met Your Mother you can’t escape the truth forever. “Unpause” gave us a glimpse into the early hours of Barney and Robin’s wedding day, but last night we only had eyes for Marshall and Lily.

It’s that time of year again, Thanksgiving. Time to meet up with your likely dysfunctional family and see those relatives you spend all year trying to avoid.

How I Met Your Mother still knows how to surprise. “Knight Vision” rested on the laurels of another classic movie saga parody. Don’t worry, you’ll love every minute of it. Here’s a hint: It’s not exactly Weekend at Bernie’s, and it wants to be Star Wars.

How I Met Your Mother returns to the pattern of nearly good yet far from great episodes. “The Broken Code” was supposed to be a big deal, but something about Ted and Barney’s confrontation was off.
