"Something Blue" is the 22nd and final episode in the second season of the television series How I Met Your Mother. It originally aired on May 14, 2007.
Season 2 sees a whole lot happen for Marshall and Lily, as they start it entirely separated and end it married! At the beginning of the season, Lily is gone, and Marshall is struggling to adjust to life without her.
In a flashforward in "The Lighthouse", Ted proposes to the Mother at the top of the lighthouse near Farhampton Inn. She immediately accepts.
Robin accepts and they plan their wedding in the second half of the season. The final season revolves around Barney and Robin's wedding weekend. After some apprehension on both their parts, they get married in "The End of the Aisle" after he vows to always be honest with her.
Robin marries Barney, although she does have some momentary misgivings when she debates running away with Ted instead. And Ted finally meets the titular Mother, Tracy, and the two start on their happily ever after (or as close as they get). However, the flash-forwards show that Ted and Robin still end up together.
The Robin ends with Barney proposing marriage to Robin, who accepts. They get married on May 25, 2013 (The End of the Aisle). After three years together travelling the world for Robin's journalism career, Barney is tired of constantly living in hotels and not being able to maintain a job of his own.
Many viewers thought that Evelyn was a female name, which remains true in today's culture, but it was once common for both genders. Ted was very old-fashioned in his personality and views on the world, so it was fitting that he had a middle name with an interesting history.
Barney and Robin broke up because they realized they didn't work as a couple. Neither of them were happy in the relationship and even their friends knew they had to stop dating for their own good. They might have loved each other, but love doesn't equal compatibility.
Barney is unhappy with all of them, being forced to endure either Ted and Robin being cutesy together or Marshall lamenting the loss of Lily. After forty days, Marshall has yet to leave the apartment and Robin, Ted, and Barney discuss the situation.
Marshall proposed to Lily in the pilot
During the proposal scene, he pops a bottle of champagne, which the six-foot-four "Marshmallow" was afraid to do just moments earlier, and the cork hits Lily in the eye. Lily goes on to wear an eye patch for the rest of the episode.
Lily disappeared from the series from the season's 20th episode, "Mobius Designs," until episode 23, "As Fast as She Can." Following the birth of her daughter in 2009, Hannigan had to take maternity leave and step away from the series for a while.
2. Sandy Rivers (played by Alexis Denisof) is Lily's husband in real life. The philandering news anchor with a penchant for untrue hyperbole, Sandy Rivers is actually Lily's husband in real life.
Marshall easily discovered there was no evidence of her being married anywhere in Canada. I used to read entire fan-translated recaps of Sailor Moon episodes that hadn't been dubbed yet.
In Challenge Accepted we find that not only Barney gets married, but also that Ted meets his wife (the eponymous character) on the day of Barney's wedding. In the Season 7 finale, Barney's wife was revealed to be Robin Scherbatsky.
It's implied that Ted and Tracy had a seemingly perfect relationship for the 10+ years they were together, which seems idealistic. While he did wait a long time to find the woman of his dreams and went through a lot of heartbreak to get there, Ted could be annoying and desperate at times.
That night, Ted meets Tracy McConnell, and they fall in love, eventually getting married. The series ends in the year 2030, with Tracy having died six years before.
Ted says she's 28, but Tracy turned 21 during the events of the Pilot, so it is very unlikely they are the same person. Coincidentally, Tracy was 28 years old when she met Ted.
In the series finale, Barney and Robin get married. Then, the action jumps forward through the years. We see the couple fight and eventually divorce.
What does Barney say to Robin in s3, The Bracket to turn robin on? He told her how the pineapple ended up on Ted's bedside table.
In the seventh season, Robin discovers that she is unable to have children. Although she had always believed she did not want to have children, she is devastated by the knowledge that she no longer has the option.
Lily admits she foresaw a horrible front porch with Robin, Ted unhappy about the two children he never had and Robin angry about the career she lost. Lily says she never intended to break them up, but accidentally gave them the words they used in their eventual breakup.
She returns to New York three months later, and confesses that leaving had been a mistake. She begs Marshall to take her back, but Marshall can't get over his wounded pride, and refuses. They eventually get back together, however, and resume their engagement. They finally get married at the end of the second season.
Robin and Barney get divorced after three years of marriage, as Robin's hectic travel schedule as a now-hotshot TV reporter leads to friction with Barney. (Among other issues, his "lifestyle blog for the sophisticated urban gentleman" suffers from a lack of Wi-Fi at an Argentinian hotel.
