Here’s how I think it will go:
Barney takes Ted to a strip club to mend his broken heart. This may done by trickery or just good old-fashioned Barney being annoying until he gets his way. Ted is unimpressed with the ladies and as usual not interested in a lap dance despite Barney’s best efforts.
Suddenly, Barney realizes that the stripper on stage – Karma – is none other than Quinn! Shock! Gasp! Legendary!
Ted is very confused…
Barney returns to the strip club (new tie, new day, I assume) for a private audience with Karma/Quinn.
Meanwhile, Lily and Marshall are disturbed to discover that Robin packed a gun among her belongings.
So Lily uses a sledgehammer to threaten Robin/make her understand the scary nature of weapons in the home.
Alternate explanation: Lily’s pregnancy hormones have finally taken her around the bend.
Sidenote – why hasn’t Marshall been experiencing sympathy pregnancy symptoms? They already “share” a stomach, with one getting sick when the other eats too much. He should have been in there puking right alongside Lily the
velociraptor vomitraptor. I would also like to see him super emotional and crying all the time, nesting and cleaning in preparation for the baby, and pissing off Lily when he experiences sympathy contractions. Just another thing that season 7 could have focused on instead of crap we’ve already been over and stupid Kevin and stupid Victoria. But I’m not bitter, I swear. Okay anyway back to the gang…
Finally, Ted accompanies Barney to the strip club, and Barney he attempts to charm Quinn/Karma into a real date with him.
Her continued purple-ness makes me concerned that Quinn ends up with Barney instead of Robin, but I simply can’t accept that as a legitimate possibility. It bums me out. Hopefully she sees the roses and candy and says “Mm hmm, nice try honey, but I’m a lesbian. Not gonna happen.” And then Barney attempts a 4-way with him, Quinn, Cindy, and Cindy’s girlfriend. Sound good?
