One thing that I love about How I Met Your Father is that they aren’t afraid to go there. It doesn’t matter what it is – they will find a way to make you laugh and think. They find a way to get to you and make you want to live your best life.
They don’t make life perfect. Instead they show you how chaotic that life can be and how there is no shame in that. You just have to find the joy and the pain and the honesty that can be in every moment.
And if you can’t – you need to believe that it will all turn out okay. And if it won’t turn out okay? Well, my friends, that’s why you have friends. They’ll bring you back down to earth and they’ll also remind you just what life is all about.
No one can really blame Sophie for being excited that she’s sold her art. It’s an amazing thing when your dreams come true, so personally, I am rooting for her. Also, I wonder what I have been doing wrong in life that I am not that excited over anything.
And I do have passions.
One thing that I love about young Sophie is that no matter what happens, she’s not jaded and if she is – she hides it well. She goes into life with the belief that even in the worst of times, the best of things can happen.
The people who purchased the photograph have invited Sophie over to their penthouse, as long as she brings Jesse with her.
I am not gonna lie, it brings me such joy to know that Jesse and Sophie are going to spend time together. I don’t think for a second that they are going to work together through everything, because hey, I am in for the long game.
Jesse and Sophie are my ship. Am I aware of the fact that I have a long time to go before I get to the end game? Yes. I am. But I am also aware that things could and will definitely change. I honestly think that’s part of the exciting part of things – the way that the angst could go.
They weren’t ready to be together. I think we all know that, because we saw Jesse make the biggest mistake, he went straight to Meredith when Sophie left. Which to me says that he isn’t ready to move forward with a lot in his life.
THE MOVING ON
If I could be like anyone in this show, I would want to be a mixture of Sophie and Valentina. They both have unique personalities, but it’s the qualities that are different that make them the best of friends.
And I can appreciate that.
Valentina has headed over to Charlie and Ellen’s to collect some of her belongings and it’s when she’s there, that she hears Ellen saying that someone dropped out of reservations and now they are down two people since friends who were supposed to go dropped out.
Ellen tells Valentina that she can come, after Valentina asks. She’s able to quickly find a date, which kinda puts Charlie off. How can she move on so quickly? Why doesn’t she feel so stuck like he does?
But he doesn’t want to show that to her. He’s like I can move on too. The thing is, he’s not ready too. He’s not ready to move on because he wasn’t ready to let go. He loves Valentina and he wants to be with her.
The strange thing is that when you are the person that hasn’t moved on, you’re the one that feels that you have to be. There is no timeline and you don’t have to be on others timelines. But, you do need to be respectful of others feelings.
As Charlie is trying to do that. No matter how much it hurts.
Sophie and Jesse head to the penthouse and well, it’s the weirdest place that I have seen. The man is creepy AF and you really just know that it’s going to go bad when they are offered raw meat when entering the place.
And where as I would have thought that Jessie was being dramatic, I also thought about all of the horror movies that told me what a place like this would really be about. Hard pass to all of this. I would rather not.
But Sophie is so wrapped up in the excitement that she doesn’t really see what is happening in the same way that Jesse does. She keeps telling him that it’ll be fine, that she needs just a little bit more time, and the guilt goes on and on.
But Jesse can see that there is something really strange happening here. He wants her to recognize it and when the dude starts talking about how there is a war on men’s rights happening and he’s here to stand up for men, I about passed out. I have to admit that I didn’t see that coming in any show, but then again, I am guessing that most of us didn’t either.
Yet, that’s part of the genius of this show. They take moments that are happening in life, make them seem as outrageous as they could be and making them relatable. They make you understand them. And they make you see what it is that we could be coming to.
I love that Sophie and Jesse called him out on his shit. They had purchased the photo because they felt that Jesse embodied a real mans man. I love that Jesse was even trying to steal it and couldn’t get it off the wall.
Sophie and Jesse work well together. Right now may not be their time. But we’re in it for the long game. Reset away – we know where this is going to end up.
- Sophie talking about the bird hat for the Met Ball had me dying laughing
- Sophie saying she kissed everyone in her friend group – even Aunt Ellen – had me curious as to what we’re in for
- The whole scenes with Valentina, Ellen, you know – the date – I wish I cared more. I feel like they are just not using Ellen in a way that they could and it kinda bothers me that her insecurities are comedic relief to them.
- The Josh Groban references, I am going need to know when he’s going to appear.
- Sid and Hannah’s banner is everything. Them planning the long distance year, I feel bad for. them
- Why are the dates on this episode so forgettable and i don’t care
- Am truly thankful that there is no Meredith in this episode
- Don’t wanna know what Hannah did for the miles.
- Also really want to know what Hannah did for the miles
- Charlie pushing the reset button and being able to move on – not ready for that.
- Flubber the Musical… sadly, it could happen
