HIMYM Recap: Marshall Uncovers Lily's Secret

On Monday’s How I Met Your Mother, the Mosby Boys got to the bottom of where Lily disappeared to after her big fight with Marshall — and the big secret she’s been keeping.

When Marshall first finds out that Lily got into The Captain’s car, his mind immediately goes to the worst possible scenario: Something adulterous is going on between the two of them. But when Marshall, Ted, Barney & Co. arrive at The Captain’s home, they discover that he never actually saw Lily — and he’s now engaged to Robin’s former co-worker Becky (played by Laura Bell Bundy). (So now that’s two of The Captain’s girlfriends/wives that Ted has had sex with.) Lily simply used the car, made a stop at a store and then asked Becky if she could use the powder room.

Crack amateur detective Ted thinks he’s got the mystery all figured out. What does Lily do when Marshall’s been away for a while? She starts smoking again! She’s been antsy all weekend and she was chewing gum, he reasons. He gets the daisy plant from the bathroom and starts looking for the buried cigarette, but instead, he discovers a pregnancy test. And it’s positive! All this time, Linus has been bringing Lily non-alcoholic drinks.

“I told you guys I could keep a secret,” Lily declares through tears back at the hotel.

Marshall is so happy, he’s all for moving to Italy. “You’re going to get your dream because you’re giving me mine. Again,” he tells her.

So the “Daisy” in the episode’s title turns out not to be The Mother’s name, as some have speculated, but that of Marshall and Lily’s daughter.

Elsewhere, Robin freaks out because all her mother’s stories about her dad sound a lot like Barney. She’s worried that she’s marrying her father. Her mother tries to reassure her that when you have someone you can depend on, it’ll all be OK. So does Robin have that person? The bride-to-be hesitates a little  — uh oh— before answering, “I do.”

i'm so pissed i cried during this (only marshall telling lily how happy their children make him)


it means i want a baby, doesn't it?
numbedtoe 11th-Mar-2014 01:57 am (UTC)
might just mean you are hormonal. or have a sappy day.

i cried today since someone's dog was sick. hormones are so much fun. *growls*
snowtears4 11th-Mar-2014 02:08 am (UTC)
i cried during toy story 3 today too and just now a swiffer commercial with a family being sent swiffer supplies because the father needs an extension for cleaning because his arm is gone from the elbow down

there's been a lot of tears on this monday
theantipoet 11th-Mar-2014 01:57 am (UTC)
lol... I was just thinking to myself how glad I was that my boyfriend wasn't around to see me tearing up during the end because his biological clock is ticking something fierce and I don't want him to start thinking mine is too.
schexyschteve 11th-Mar-2014 02:06 am (UTC)
I want a baby really badly, and I swear to god, different people I know have announced they're pregnant once a week for the last like, 4-5 weeks

I just found out I'm pregnant a couple weeks ago and I haven't really been hormonal until today. I told my boss that I won't be coming back to the school next year (I'm a teacher) because my son is starting Kindergarten and I drive an hour each day to work. I didn't mention that I'm due in October. So when we had our faculty meeting this afternoon, he asked to use me as an example for people possibly leaving because we're losing some positions and I said it was okay... I started bawling. I love my co-workers so much, it was a hard decision, but it is the right one for my family.
gracestalker 11th-Mar-2014 08:36 pm (UTC)
I cried also. I think it was mainly because they acted it really emotional, as I don't want a baby.

This was a video shown before their Comic-Con panel last summer. It was hilarious.

This was so great. I love how similar they still look.
numbedtoe 11th-Mar-2014 01:57 am (UTC)
it's so weird to me that they have stretched a wedding weekend into an entire season.
kamikashi 11th-Mar-2014 04:56 am (UTC)
i feel like they think they were so fuckin smart with that idea but i fuckin hate it lol.
yourlivewire 11th-Mar-2014 05:20 am (UTC)
i'm sure they thought they were brilliant but they didn't take the fact that they've already stretched this wedding out for three fucking years into account (first with 'whose wedding is it?', then with 'who's barney's bride?', then with 'how did they get back together?').
judgmental 11th-Mar-2014 01:58 am (UTC)
I never really couldn't stand Lily but I wondered if she's the one who died and it made me kind of sad... guess I just spent too much time with her on my screen
dowisetrepla 11th-Mar-2014 08:38 am (UTC)
I don't think anyone dies.

This is what I think about that scene last week: I think that maybe the Mother was sick. Maybe she had cancer or something & they thought that she was going to die but then she gets better.

I honestly don't think that the writers would pull us all into this story for the past 9 years only to have it end with someone (the Mother, as a lot of people think) dying. Especially because it's a comedy.
klutzy_girl 11th-Mar-2014 01:58 am (UTC)
I started suspecting Lily was pregnant about ten minutes in, and I'm so happy she and Marshall are having another baby! I figured they'd conceive baby number two during this long weekend, but this was better. And I love that they named her Daisy! The flower theme is cute.

And they laid it on a little thick with Robin's mom. I'm choosing to believe she was drugged out her ass because of that plane ride and was just repeating stuff Robin's told her before.
rebeccamars 11th-Mar-2014 02:04 am (UTC)
I actually made the connection pretty instantly because they've had Lily run off on Marshall before and do a pregnancy test. It was so similar, it just popped right into my head.
text143 11th-Mar-2014 02:42 am (UTC)
There's prettier flower names than Daisy, which makes me hope the baby get carried away by a coyote like Jessica Simpson's Daisy.
laurondo 11th-Mar-2014 01:59 am (UTC)
First time in awhile this show surprised me tbh. I thought they were going to say Lily went off with David Burtka's character and have some ~funny~ reason as to why.
rebeccamars 11th-Mar-2014 02:03 am (UTC)
Ugh at them hinting Robin is back into Ted now. They already confirmed Barney and Robin get married, obviously Ted marries the mother, do not want anymore Robin and Ted teasing.
schexyschteve 11th-Mar-2014 02:08 am (UTC)
Thank you! I mean, how many fucking times do we have to do this, or even imply this?! We know Robin and Barney get married. We know Ted and the Mother get married. They had that weird send-off to Robin from Ted a few episodes ago. WHY DO THEY KEEP GOING BACK?
regardez 11th-Mar-2014 02:13 am (UTC)
if the mom dies maybe they're setting up a way for ted to marry robin? i'd be ticked though. ugh. i can't see this ending being good
marinade 11th-Mar-2014 02:13 am (UTC)
I'm a bit confused why they gave up a LIFETIME JOB AS JUDGE for a year in Italy. Obviously it was longer than a year but still, being a judge is big shit.
regardez 11th-Mar-2014 02:14 am (UTC)
yeah his reasoning was stupid
text143 11th-Mar-2014 02:43 am (UTC)
Because Lily thinks she's artistic, no matter how many times she's been told otherwise.
yourlivewire 11th-Mar-2014 05:14 am (UTC)
lol #truth
misspinkkate 11th-Mar-2014 12:18 pm (UTC)
All T!
cherrivalance 11th-Mar-2014 03:06 am (UTC)
idk i thought it was fair, she gave up a lot for him tbh, and she supported him all throughout law school. i get that it's not super realistic but it's nice that lily got to follow her dreams too.
kamikashi 11th-Mar-2014 05:01 am (UTC)
i thought it was realistic they went with him taking the judgeship in the other episode. and realistically in this episode it really should have been him taking the judgeship with another kid on the way. but i can see why he did give it up i guess. to me its like, with another baby on the way it really may be her last chance ever to follow her dream. in an ideal world she should be able to pursue her dreams even with kids, but that would prob take several more years until she could get to that point again without being the main homemaker.
monotonousglory 11th-Mar-2014 10:42 am (UTC)
fucking agreed. so dumb.
squishinator 11th-Mar-2014 02:44 am (UTC)
i KNEW she was gonna be pregnant but the whole ep i second guessed myself bc i thought she was drinking the entire time.
leenerific 11th-Mar-2014 03:19 am (UTC)
Me too. The moment they showed her coming out of the store with the bag the first time, but then thinking about drinks/she acted drunk during the day and a half, I was like "well, maybe not"
xcollsangelx 11th-Mar-2014 02:53 am (UTC)
I can't with them naming their daughter Daisy. So corny.

text143 11th-Mar-2014 03:06 am (UTC)
Right? Why not Poppy or Fern, at least? Daisy and Lily are as basic as you can get.
hausofashley 11th-Mar-2014 03:28 am (UTC)
What about ~Vylette~?

hjohnson 11th-Mar-2014 02:57 am (UTC)
I started to get teary when they were with each other at the end but it immediately stopped when he gave up being a judge to fly to Rome. STILL A STUPID IDEA, ESPECIALLY WITH A BABY.
musicbox13 11th-Mar-2014 03:39 am (UTC)
I keep thinking that Robin and Barney's marriage is going to fall apart. Have we actually seen them together in any flash forwards besides the one where they wake up in a hotel room with a random kid? My memory's kind of fuzzy so I might be wrong.
tifag 11th-Mar-2014 03:48 am (UTC)
The episode where Robin found out she couldn't have kids showed drawings of her interacting with Ted's kids but there is no mention of Barney.
evrythingisrent 11th-Mar-2014 05:15 am (UTC)
Have they ever showed Barney that far into the future? Maybe he dies.
miakun 11th-Mar-2014 03:56 am (UTC)
Annoyed they're going into Ted/Robin AGAIN, but was so relieved when Marshall got his head out of his ass and supported Lily for once.
prophecypro 11th-Mar-2014 04:49 am (UTC)
Man they are still using a lot of plotlines I thought they would wrap up ages again.
_______awshucks 11th-Mar-2014 04:56 am (UTC)
