How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Ep 13 Bass Player Wanted

09.13 Bass Player Wanted

20 hours before the wedding

Previously, Marshall said that he could walk 5 miles to Farhampton Inn. This is where the episode begins, he walks with determination, music playing and narrative singing.

A car stops next to him and asks if he needs a ride "And that's how Marshall met your mother"

The group: The whole gang is here except there's one thing missing. "A bottle of $600 scotch"
"Also, where the hell is Marshall?"
Lily tells them not to choose sides. Barney says good because he chooses Marshall.
Ted distracts him by going to the bar.
Robin tells her it's only because Barney has a lot of public urination citations. (She looks proud of this)
"But don't worry, I'm on your side."

A guy sits down and Robin & Lily have a mental conversation. They talk about the guy hitting on them and wanting a threesome - Lily goes to a dark place. And the guys says thanks for having him in the wedding so perhaps he's one of Robin's cousins. But no, he has all his fingers and teeth.

Meanwhile, Marshall is thanking the mother for driving. And she's making very accurate guesses about his life which freaks him out. (Note that she's wearing driving gloves!) She locks the doors when Marshall tries to get out of the car. "No just kidding, I met your wife on the train. You must be Marshall." He's in the back hiding next to Marvin. "I was just checking on the baby"

Back to Robin and Lily and the guy. They're joking and laughing but they still don't know who the guy is. Strange how Ted and Barney still hasn't come back yet. Lily goes to the bar and tells Ted about the Farhampton liquor store and the lax security. Barney chimes in about how going to jail for a bro is "the dream." He and Ted have a whole talk about how many "the dream" Barney has so he can only pick one.
The mystery guy spills the beans about Robin hoping Marshall will get his way with the judgeship situation. And then he leaves.

Marshall thanks the mother for picking him up. She said she had to stop "for the cutest hitchhiker ever!" And Marshall thinks it's him but "oh you're talking about Marvin."
She mentions that she'll be going back to the city after dropping them off because of their devil-like lead singer, Darren. He'll go up to two friends and ruin their friendship. They're always left asking "how did we get here?" *He goes up to Ted and Barney*

Ted and Barney connects with him. "He'll tell a tragic backstory usually from an animated kids film" "It's often Bambi.....sometimes he'll throw a little Lion King in there." Then he'll get something friendship threatening.

The mother tells Marshall about her band "Super Freakonomics" because he mentions his lawyer band "The Funk, The Whole Funk, and Nothing but the Funk" She tells him she's leaving because she saw a "bass player wanted" ad online for her own band so she quit. Marshall tells her to take revenge which she did thanks to "Aldrin justice" *they high five*
"You should take his van and run my husband over"
She says that she can't handle confrontation "Yes you can!" "You make some good points"

Robin and Lily make up, Darren show up and ruin it again. And then he goes to Barney & Ted to spill the secret about Ted moving to Chicago.
"At least tell me you're not moving until next year or something"
"It's not until....Monday"
"It'll be easy to say good bye knowing how little I mean to you"

Robin tells Lily that she was never on Marshall's side, just didn't want to love her best friend.
She pulls out Marsh-pillow and holds the arms while Lily beats it up.

Ted apologizes to Barney. "I swear on my mother's--no I swear to God---no, I swear to Hef"
*Gassp* "Don't take that name in vain!"
Ted hands Barney a bottle of the missing scotch and tells Barney that he stole it for him
"$600 bottle, Ted that's grand larceny! You really could go to jail for this!"
"That's the dream!"
Barney: Lilly and Marshall will only be gone a year. We'll still see each other all the time. You, me, Robin...Oh..I'll miss you

Marshall arrive and he tells her that at the reception, he'll yell "The lead singer sucks skunk junk!'
Marvin's first words: Skunk Junk
"For the record...his first word was mommy"

The mother talks to Linus and gives him her speech to Darren. He says that "his mother was eaten by a barracuda" "Gaahhh that's Finding Nemo!! ..That's new"
She orders the Kennedy package

We see Lily still beating up Marsh-pillow and Marshall show up with Marvin in his arms. They pause and kiss and embrace.

Darren bumps into Ted while he's pouring the scotch. He gets punched in the face.
At the same time, the mother is talking about karma and how Darren's karma will never be coming to him. "I guess he'll never get that knockout punch"
She laughs at Darren and he quits the band "The best man just punched me for no good reason"
"Linus, whomever that best man is, I would like to buy him a bottle of your finest scotch"
And kids, that's the first drink your mother ever bought me.

Marshall tells Barney he got him a wedding gift. He demands Marshall hand it over now.
It's the fourth slap!!!

More of the mother means we are closer to the end. The wedding (according to the time given) will be Sunday at 6pm. Which means, we are getting that much closer to Ted meeting the mother and the series being over. 
Grab your tissues boys and girls, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

Once Upon a Time Season 3 Ep 11 Going Home

03.11 Going Home

Opening title sequence: Emma's yellow bug driving through green fog.

The gang devises a plan to save Henry and kill Pan before the curse gets enacted. Hook, Neal, and David have to go to the Blue Fairy and get the wand of the Dark Fairy from her in order to switch Henry and Pan back. Tink bravely fights and destroys Pan's shadow and in turn, she gains her wings back and revives the Blue fairy.

Rumple uses the dark wand to put Henry-Pan to sleep and to switch their bodies back. He stays behind to have a "talk" with his father while everyone else goes out to look for Henry. Pan revives and takes away Rumple's powers.

Regina gets her hands on the scroll that created the curse and finds out what she has to do. She has to destroy Storybrooke and in turn, taking away everyone's memories. But Emma and Henry can't go back to the Enchanted Forest because that is the price that she (Regina) has to pay.

Rumple comes out to see what has to happen, he takes out his "Dark One" dagger and kills Pan with it. And in turn, he dies too. Belle sobs a the spot where Rumple was (both men disappeared.)

Everyone says good bye to Emma and Henry at the town line. Regina gives them new memories of their years together (Emma never gave up Henry). The mother and son drive away while behind them, Storybrooke vanishes including the line where the dwarfs had drawn the town line.

One year later....
We see Emma and Henry's new life. They are in the apartment that Emma was in at the beginning of the show and they have cool appliances and a great life together. Someone knocks on the door during breakfast and we see that it's Hook. He tries to get in and tell Emma that her parents are in danger but she defends himself and kicks him. She closes the door and returns to Henry. "It was nobody"

I didn't get to watch the preview but everyone seems to know that Oz is coming next. And the OUAT Facebook page shows a picture of the Green witch and it says "Wicked always wins"
We saw a car that looked exactly like Emma's yellow bug while we were in the Disneyland parking lot. This was before I finished the episode. It would have been so much more significant to me if I had seen the ending.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Season 1 Ep 8 Home

01.08 Home

Alice and Cyrus are sitting next to a fire looking up at the stars.
They stars being to fall (this looks more like magic snow)
"One kiss under the falling stars will give you good fortune"
"If you want to kiss me, you don't have to make up a story"
*They make out*
*She begins to unbutton his shirt* and finds a compass that goes in infinite directions
He got it from his mother
She discovers he hasn't always been a genie
The compass has great magic and will always point towards her
But some years ago, it stopped pointing (means she died)
Someone puts a sword to Cyrus's neck
They want Cyrus's bottle
"I am not to be trifled with!"
"Unfortunately, neither is she"
*Fight ensues*
The men run
"I guess the stars did bring us luck, they barely even scratched me
*she bleeds and passes out*

Opening Title Sequence: White Rabbit

Alice is hiding behind a tree
Will appears
"You frightened me, where have you been?"
"Sorry, nature was calling"
"Really? What did it say?"
"Nothing you want to hear"
There's guards walking around who are looking for Cyrus
Alice knows where he's going
"The only place where he knows he's safe" "He just needs to get there before they get him"

Cyrus is running. He gets caught in a trap.

Tweedle walking by a bush hears Cyrus struggling.
"Thank you grape vine, the queen will be pleased"
(LOL It's a literal grape vine)
He sees his brother, the other Tweedle meeting up with Jafar

He goes the queen to tell her that Cyrus has been captured in the forest
And also that his brother gave Jafar a bag
She goes to a locked up shelf (this is the shelf from that episode where she becomes the new queen and she tried to steal that crown. But now it is locked up)
She opens one of the drawers and pulls out a box with a checkers design (black and red) on it. The box is empty inside. The Queen is pissed.

Alice and Will are heading to the Outlands
They made a promise that if they ever get separated, they'll always meet up there
But she wants to stop at the White Rabbit's house first

Cyrus carries Alice to the White Rabbit
(Rabbit's wife sounds like Whoopi Goldberg)
She has boobs
They have children

The Queen lets Cyrus down
They drive off

Jafar has the three last
He compares the weight of two of them and discovers Cyrus's bottle to be a fake
He smashes it *Hulk rage!!*

Alice and Will arrive at Rabbit's hovel and Alice sees something wrong
"Maybe he abandoned the place"
"Or maybe that's just what he wants people to think"
She knocks. No answer. She kicks the door in.
Rabbit is all sad
She knows he betrayed her and she needs his help so they could go home
The Queen took his family
What if we rescued them?
Will says he doesn't know where the Queen might stash something important but she knows where Anastasia might.

The Queen and Cyrus pull up to a small wagon. She looks concerned.
She goes inside and it is revealed it's her Anastasia stuff (her pink dress is there)
She gets Cyrus's bottle and tells him he has a big decision to make

Cyrus is pacing outside Rabbit's house
Rabbit tells him she's going to be fine...for now
He also says what about next time? Alice has always wanted a real home.
"Perhaps the only way to protect Alice is to let her go"

Jafar storms the castle
There's a box with Jafar's name on it
He opens it to see the Tweedle's head in there "I think she's onto us"
Jafar goes to the Queen's room and looks at her stuff. He picks up her hair brush and steals a hair
He evily flies away on his magic carpet and burns the castle in the process

The Queen and Cyrus see the burning castle
She makes a chess metaphor

Cyrus is in the Caterpillar's bar
He offers his magic compass in exchange for helping someone disappear

Will, Alice, and the Rabbit arrive at the wagon
Will goes inside and touches the pink dress
He sees the empty box where the bottle used to be
He hears something and saves the Rabbit family
They have to head to the Outlands. (She seems to know where it is)

Cyrus and Queen are heading to the Outlands
"How are you so sure she's going to be there?"
"Because she thinks I'm going to be there"
The Queen wishes for Cyrus to shut up

Jafar is doing something with the Queen's hair
Most likely a locator spell
It creates a small storm cloud inside a glass case (a bit like the one that hold the Beast's rose)
He releases the storm cloud out the window and tells it to "find the Red Queen and kill her"

Alice and Cyrus are walking
She talks about a mountain she's heard of. Where we can stand on top of the clouds
He tells her that they're too dangerous together. He tries to leave her.
"The only thing that could hurt me is being apart from you"
He points to an empty space next to a rock. They walk into it and it looks like a fancy tent inside
"A home"
"You know that they say sacrifice is the measure of true love"

Alice, Will, and Rabbit arrive and Alice goes inside.
Cyrus hasn't arrived yet
She's confused and looking for a note
"We're not leaving without Cyrus"
She looks out the door and sees Cyrus there
They run towards each other and embrace
"Even in my dreams I was afraid to imagine this moment in fear it may never come true. You're here!"
They kiss
The Queen appears behind them. "She's here to help us" DUN DUN DUNNNN

Alice demands to know why the Queen made the deal with Jafar.
I thought he could get me what I wanted
"You" (She wanted Will)
"You'll never have me"
Jafar looks outside the window "There you are...darling... See you soon"

The Queen begs Alice to believe her. Cyrus tells them that she's telling the truth.
Alice tells Rabbit to dig a hole. (I feel like he's just their little servant. He's always standing there looking all cute and helpless and digging when someone commands him to)
The thunder cloud tries to hit the Queen but she deflects it and it hits Will. Alice falls because of her first wish (If the Knave dies, then I do too)
Anastasia attends to Will and Cyrus attends to Alice.
Cyrus commands her to make her last wish. "No I don't want to put you back in the bottle again"
Will reminds Alice that she promised him a wish if he helped find Cyrus.
"Be very careful what you wish for Will"

"I wish to end Alice's suffering"
Magic yellow-orange woosh.
Alice wakes up. Cyrus discovers his shackles are gone. "My binds, they're gone. They're gone. Alice, I'm free!"
Rabbit: The Knave, he wished to end Alice's suffering. Part of your pain was not being able to be with the one you loved
They turn around and see that Will is not there anymore
Queen: He's gone. He was here, and now he's gone
Cyrus: Oh no...
Queen: What?? Where is he?
Cyrus: Where's the bottle?
Will wake up in the bottle. "Oh...bloody hell"
He's in the water being dragged down a very large waterfall

I hope to see Cyrus and Alice happily together and for the Queen to go back to her Anastasia self.

"Are you trying to ask me out on a date?"

Charming and Snow are eating lunch at Granny's

He drinks it. Snow "How do you feel?"
He feels great and kisses her
(They're probably going to go make a baby now)
He says "Let's go get started on that family"

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Season 1 Ep 7 Bad Blood

Previously...we saw Cyrus jumping off the cliff and Jafar talking to Alice's father.

01.07 Bad Blood

Agrabah many years ago:
Jafar is a young boy and he's telling his mother not to leave him. (She is on her deathbed.) She tells him that his father will take care of him. "Go to him at the palace." "But only the Sultan is there." 
She hands Jafar a ring "this belonged to him, he will remember."
The wind picks up and she slowly passes away with sand floating out of her body. 

Jafar is still wearing the ring and he's speaking to Alice's father.
He says he'll show the father where Alice went and lets the White Rabbit out of the bag.
The Rabbit makes a portal. "Where are you taking me?" "Some people call it: Wonderland"

Opening title sequence: A dragon flies into the frame and flaps its wings at us

Jafar, Rabbit, and Alice's father land in Wonderland.
The Rabbit is dismissed. 
Alice's father is in disbelief. 
Jafar: What child wouldn't want to be rescued by their father?

Meanwhile, Alice: I could be with Cyrus by nightfall
Will has doubts.
Alice: Finding Cyrus is 99% of the battle. The rest will take care of itself
There are random mushrooms growing everywhere

Tweedle goes to the Queen to tell her they haven't found Cyrus.
Jafar appears when she's revealing her plan to the Tweedle.

Back at Jafar's fortress, a guard is fixing Cyrus's cage.
He yells at the old man
Jafar goes to Alice's passed out father who is constrainted
He draws some blood and puts it in a pewter, creating a potion

Alice and Will stare at the floating fortress.
They empty their pockets "taking inventory"
Will has a dollar bill and "keys to Granny's," a peanut...a stale peanut
They hear chirping. It's a birdbark tree!! Their wood is amazing! 
She breaks off a branch and watches it float.

Jafar asks "are you right handed or left handed?"
He's obviously making a polyjuice potion. 

Young Jafar is brought in front of the Sultan
"You are to lose the hand of which you stole"
Jafar kneels and shows the hand with the ring on it.
The Sultan comes to the conclusion that Jafar is his son.
"Thank you father" "You will not use that word. I am not your father, you are not my son"

Will: Can you tell me what your plan is?
Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? I'm going to build a basket, attach some of the birdbark to it and float up to the castle.
Jafar appears as her father. "Alice you were right! About this place, about everything! Can you ever forgive me?" He hugs her.
He tells her a story of buying a looking glass and going through it.
Alice: Now what?
Father: I just want to make it up to you.
Alice: You never treated me like a daughter. I was always an obligation.

Jafar is serving a meeting with foreign emissaries.
The Sultan asks his son to explain why they cannot stop the blockade in one of the foreign lands.
The son, unable to answer, is shown up by Jafar. Then dismissed by the Sultan.
The son goes to Jafar and begins slapping him. (This son is younger and remarkably shorter.)
I'm starting to think the old man might be the little brother. But then again, he looks older than Jafar so maybe not.
The Sultan enters and tells his son to slap him again.

Jafar asks Will for help. Will tells him it takes time and help her find her genie.

We see Cyrus lying on an island below the floating castle

Alice asks what Will was talking to her father about and whether or not she should forgive him.
Jafar, sitting on a nearby rock, begins drawing in the sand and reciting a spell.
Will asks whether Alice thought about how they will get back down.
She responds with something along the lines of "I've done a calculation" "extra weight" "trajectory" "back in the water"
"It's physics Knave"
A dragon appears in the sky and flies at them
They use what they've made of the basket as a shield.
They run into the forest
The dragon looks so fake
It attacks Alice's father. She defeats it by throwing her sword at the dragon. It somehow "kills" it
You're not a horrible man, I've faced a horrible man here in Wonderland.

Jafar is washing his face and the Sultan appears and speaks to him.
The Sultan tries to drown Jafar in the tub of water.
Throw him out with the rest of the rubbish.

Alice's father is praying and thanking God for the food.
He speaks to the old man who tells him about Cyrus and Alice.

Alice, Will, and Jafar are eating the dragon.
She realizes that it's not really her father because he did not pray before eating the food.
Will and Alice go off into the forest. Jafar follows and conjures the cobra from the ground.
He turns back into Jafar

Jafar grabs Alice's real father and threatens to drop him into the water
He apologizes to Alice. "I blamed you" and "I doubted you"
She said "the times I ran away, I was just trying to find proof of where I've been"
"I don't want to take another thing away from you. I only want to give you one thing: hope. Cyrus has escaped. Save him, not me!"
She makes a wish to send her father back home.

Alice has a tear on her face
Will apologizes and Alice says she's not sorry because now she has her father safe and Cyrus has escaped.

Alice's father wakes up back home and his new wife walks in. "Edwin, what's wrong?"
She tells him it was just a dream and to go back to bed

Jafar pulls the old man's cage closer
Let's chat face to face like a man.

Grownup Jafar storms into the palace using his magic cobra and confronts the Sultan.
The Sultan does not recognize him
"Look at my face and tell me [if you know who I am]"
Jafar's half brother comes in but runs away when Jafar asks him to fight.
He kills him using magic
All Jafar wants is "call me your son" "just say the words"
"I will never give you what you want"

My only regret is not holding you under the water longer.
I'm going to take away the one thing that matters to you.
He jumps off the ledge but is saved by the magic carpet.

Cyrus wakes up. "Alice"

How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Ep 12 The Rehearsal Dinner

(Last week's episode was so much of a filler that I didn't even write about it)

09.12 The Rehearsal Dinner

22 hours before the wedding

We zoom in on a cute cow stuffed animal that has a sign "Let's get this party started"
Barney is handcuffed to a pole and asks the security guy in the room to push the button on the cow.
Robin is wearing a strapless gold dress and very angry.
She tells Barney she's mad because she should be at the rehearsal dinner but instead, she's in a laser tag security office waiting for Barney to be arrested.

A few months ago:
Barney has a brilliant idea:
"Laser tag rehearsal dinner"

"Name one bad idea I've ever had"
"Gluten free edible panties"
"Hot dog on a stick on a bun"
"Inflatable sex toy life raft"
"The breast augmentation channel"
"Single malt scotch tape"
"The time you ran for mayor"
"The only poll I care about is in my pants"

They make fun of Canada

Something about Ted playing piano at their rehearsal dinner dressed as Liberachi

Barney got Robin back for the bachelor party by saying he'll leave her. And he asks her to move out.
Inside a suitcase on a bed is 4 fat golden retriever puppies.
Robin lays down the law "no more surprises"

Barney thinks Robin is throwing a laser tag dinner.
Lily sucks at keeping secrets.

Ted didn't really learn the piano.
Barney left the Inn and went to laser tag.

Lily tells Ted & Robin about Marshall's judgeship
Ted gets mad

"A marriage needs to be built on honesty and trust and all that Lily and Marshal crap"
Ted tells Lily a secret and then hands her a microphone
"Ladies and gentlemen, there's been a change of plans:

Barney gets out of the handcuffs
He hands Robin a pair of ice skates
and it starts snowing inside the room.
Barney presses the "let's get this party started" button and the walls lift up
Standing outside the room are all their friends from the party and there's snow outside. (Because they're at an ice rink)
Ted is wearing his Liberachi costume.
The security guard is actually an ice skater.
Alan Thicke sings (so does Barney's brother)

"I love you!"

Robin: I thought you hated Canada
Barney: Of course not, I love Canada!
*He lists a bunch of things that came from Canada*
"Barney Stintson, instant mashed potatoes, and best of all: You"
*they kiss*
Ted goes by on a rolling piano (playing it)

This was definitely not a filler episode. Marshall didn't appear at all. Perhaps it was because he was the only one in the previous episode. This episode showed even more the love between Robin and Barney. It was sweet. I was getting so frustrated during the episode but the end made it all worth it.

Once Upon a Time Season 3 Ep 9 Save Henry

03.09 Save Henry

Flashback: We are back in the Enchanted Forest and the curse is just arriving. Regina and the then entrapped Rumple are conversing in the dungeon. He tells her that something is missing which she denies. They discuss things. Rumple giggles sa lot.

Opening title sequence: A dark cloud forms around the edges then Pan's shadow flies overhead

The parents are all worried over Henry. Pan lands and sneers at Emma while she tries to stab him. Pan flies off.

11 Years Ago:
Regina is sitting at her desk signing papers and Archie is standing  in front of her. They speak.  He tells her that having a child might fill the hole she has insde of her. She goes to Gold for him to get her a child.

They try to figure out where Pan went. Regina tells Emma that she has everything (parents, "this guy", and a pirate who pines for you) while she has no one but Henry.
The group is back at Pan's camp looking for him, Regina threatens Felix for information. Emma offers a better alternative: a mother.

Gold lets Regina know that an adoption nearby fell through so the baby boy is in need of a home. That and the the agency is in Boston.
