This week’s “How I Met Your Mother” episode showed us just how crazy Ted is. Sure, his new girlfriend Jeanette locks herself in Ted’s room, destroys his stuff and is convinced that he is in love with Lily. But the weird part is, Ted is still really into her. Which is worse? I’m going to have to go with Ted.
Ted had a few chances to cut off Jeanette before things went south, but not surprisingly he chooses to go with it and wait until he has a crazy girl locked in his room and, as a flash-forward tells us, the relationship literally goes up in flames. No, really, there’s fire involved. But of course, we have to wait to see how that unfolds.
Anyway, Lily tells Ted not to break up with Jeanette just yet and that he needs this right now, or something like that. I don’t know, but if I were Ted I would value my life and safety over having a so-called exhilarating stint with a psychopath. But Ted is desperate, end of story.
Wait, side note: Jeanette is a cop. How is this woman a cop? I don’t know much about the actual process of becoming a cop, but don’t they have to do a mental evaluation or something beforehand? Also, even if she is a cop and is friends with the cop who Ted calls to get Jeanette out of his house, isn’t there some possible way to get her arrested anyways? Cops can’t legally be squatters and destroy people’s homes, can they? CAN THEY?
In another plot twist, Mike Tyson makes an appearance! I have to say, I am a huge fan of how Robin told her story of watching Baby Marvin through a series of flash-forwards. The zinger? Mike Tyson was the one who helped her all along. Honestly, Baby Marvin has it made. Mike Tyson not only held him, but also hung out with him at a strip club. Marvin: baller status for life.
Another side note: Mike Tyson’s voice makes me uncomfortable. That is all.
And Robin, it took you long enough to get over your fear of holding a baby. Literally every woman has that maternal instinct. Even if a woman doesn’t like babies, pop an infant in her arms and next thing you know, she’s coddling it in blankets and singing lullabies as it drifts into a peaceful slumber. Well, you know what I mean. I guess if anyone is going to help get you over your fear of holding babies, it might as well be Mike Tyson.
That’s all for this week, tune in Monday at 8 p.m. on CBS for episode 17!
