I love that Jai from Queer Eye is James' husband. I'd never noticed that before.

And holy crepe!!!!

I thought that was him, but I wasn't positive. And yes, holy crepe indeed.

James' husband was played by somebody completely different last time. I think one guy is hispanic and one is not. That'll be why you didn't notice before!

Boyfriend thought it was and I was all, 'shut up, it's not him, stop saying things'. Oops.

I love Barney more and more and more every time I watch this show. I feel like that explains so much of what's wrong with my love life

Am I the only one who honestly thought/hoped that those children were real?

No. But we should have known better. But who is Barney going to marry? They wouldn't bring Nora back again, would they?

That was so so sad. Ughhhh. Does this mean Barney and Robin don't get married? BC that would be horrendous. But Barney wants kids, and Robin doesn't have any. Ughhhh. Whyy is this a soap opera!

I thought it was pretty much out of left field that they weren't...it was sad and powerful and everything, but I felt manipulated.

But I don't quite understand...does this mean she was narrating from that park bench and she might have kids someday later on? Also, she could still marry Barney, no?

I was so convinced those children were real and it absolutely broke my heart that they aren't. Second episode this season to have me teary eyed.

And it doesn't mean that Barney and Robin won't get married, does it? She was thinking about marrying him because she started off what she was telling her children by talking about how she ended up with their father. UGH. I hated that it was so sad.

That was so sad! I was hoping after Robin found out she couldn't have kids at the end she'd be like "and that how your dad and I adopted you," but I guess I should have known. I really hope Barney and Robin end up together still. Ugh, I was so excited when the episode started out, and now I am just sad.

I can't imagine this late into the season Barney is going to meet somebody new and marry her. And Norah is a bit silly to come back to him AGAIN. So I really hope he still marries Robin, although its unlikely.

I paused, looked at my husband and said "OMG that was amazing I am so happy!! . . . are they forking with us or are they serious?"

DAMMIT.

Hell to the motherforking yeah! I felt so manipulated. It made me a bit angry that they know people want Barney and Robin together, so they throw this effing story at us. There was no point to thinking she was pregnant to begin with. I think this episode was just mean.

I cried. But I don't think it means Barney and Robin won't end up together, hopeuflly. And I thought it was weird that we were seeing her kids and she was saying Barney was their father, I knew it was too good to be true.

I just recently watched the show from the beginning again, and they don't actually, explicitly ever say that Robin doesn't have children. So I believed it so hard. Forkers.

I wonder if the fact that Robin never had kids is going to be the reason she and Barney don't end up together, since he really wants them. I'm so pro-Robin+Barney, but maybe we're supposed to realize that they aren't meant to end up together? :(

I'm in all sorts of denial. I forking hope that means they do get together, but they end up adopting kids...or don't have any at all.

I think Barney's reaction was more about having a kid with the woman he loves...and should totally end up with.

This is a really good piece about the show in general. http://www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2011 ... lity?sc=tw
