Barney and Quinn's relationship was moving a little too fast for the rest of the gang on "How I Met Your Mother" (Mon., 8 p.m. ET on CBS), so the ultimately staged a "Quinntervention," filled with plenty of puns on her name. It all came to a head after a disastrous dinner party saw her ordering Barney around. They were concerned she was taking advantage of him and his wallet as she'd done before their relationship changed.
She'd admittedly been using her same stripper routine on him as she did on other men to get as much money out of them as possible, but things seem to have genuinely changed between them. After she walked in on the "Quinntervention," she just as quickly stormed out and broke up on Barney because she couldn't believe he was ashamed to tell his friends what she did for a living.
But it was all a ruse orchestrated by the two of them to mess with the gang. The kicker on Quinn's part was to announce that they were moving in together, so that her apartment would be available and she could watch in glee as Ted and Robin fought over it. After giving Marshall and Lily his apartment, both Ted and Robin have been in temporary living arrangements.
But by the end of the episode, the ruse had been revealed. Barney made his friends vow to never meddle in his life again before revealing the trickery, going so far as to force Robin and Lily to kiss -- though Lily didn't seem forced at all on that one -- as well as Marshall and Ted.
As it turns out, the idea of moving in together went from part of the hoax to a real idea, and Quinn's apartment legitimately did come up. At the same time, though, Robin got promoted to on-air personality, complete with a big fat raise, so she found a place of her own. So Quinn's old place gets to become Ted's new place.
The teaser for the future saw Ted telling his kids that the moment he and Robin decided they could just be normal again was actually the last time he'd see her for a while. Find out why as "How I Met Your Mother" continues Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
