How I Met Your Mother Poll on Robin and Barney's Relationship

Do You Want to See Barney and Robin Back Together?

First, I have to gush a little about this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother, the one I think may be the best of the season so far. It has an impromptu musical number from Ted, a guest appearance from a surprisingly on point Jennifer Lopez, and an acknowledgment that the writers have not forgotten what the viewers haven't: that Barney and Robin dated.

Back in November I was irritated with the way the show gave up on their relationship, but last night we got a flicker of the possibility of reconciliation (which Carter Bays also recently hinted at). I rooted for them to couple up for so long that I'd be excited if Robin and Barney got back together, but only if it was handled differently. If Marshall and Lily can sustain a non-boring relationship on the sitcom, then why not another couple? What do you think; do you want Robin and Barney to reunite, or do you think they're better off apart?

I kind of love the way things are progressing between Robin and Donald---very real how she went from hating him, to kind of enjoying his company. I would be happy to see Robin finally settled down; I think she deserves it.

I don't want them together again. Barney is the perpetual bachelor -- it's such a part of who he is. These characters would both have to change a lot in order to be together and have it last. I personally am not ready to see them change enough to be with each other yet. Let's get a little further on the mother mystery to get Ted settled before we have a Barney/Robin reunion...

I like them better apart. I'm really digging Robin with Don, actually. This episode and the rabbit/duck episode have both been really good ones. Love this show!

Don't really care for them, I really love Marshall & Lilly. So it doesn't matter to me either way.

I didn't necessarily think it was the funniest of the season -- but it was for damn sure one of the best episodes to date. I totally could relate in this episode. Poor Robin. I think most girls have been in that position when remaining friends with an ex. If we don't hear about it, it's not happening. The ending was just adorable. Adorable enough for me to really wish that they bring Barney and Robin back together.
