"How Your Mother Met Me" was one of the strongest, most beautiful episodes of "How I Met Your Mother." I would go as far as to say that it was the best episode in years. Whatever doubts fans had about Cristin Milioti can be cast aside after watching her performance, one show creator Craig Thomas thought could win her a guest Emmy. I don't disagree.
While "The Lighthouse" gave the plot a giant leap forward, this week's "Platonish" takes us six months back in time, before Robin and Ted were engaged. We're at MacLaren's. We're in the gang's apartment. Everyone's got a fresh set of clothes. It feels a little bit like old times, but we're in for a few major twists.
