How I Met Your Father Episode 219 & 220: “Shady Parker” & “Okay Tremendous, It’s a Hurricane”
Written by Valerie Anne
This week is the two-episode finale of How I Met Your Father is a romp that kindly takes into consideration that the present has not but been renewed for a 3rd season. However I’m getting forward of myself.
Because of a Sandy Rivers cameo, we be taught that there’s a hurricane swooping in, as a little bit of literal and metaphorical foreshadowing. However first, the chums have a packing get together, as a result of Jesse is shifting in with Parker to make room for Hannah in Sid’s condominium. Sophie is making an attempt to be tremendous supportive of the connection, however her jealousy makes her act out, snooping in Parker’s issues and accusing her of being “a scorching conwoman who swings each methods.” We by no means get affirmation on the second factor, however Parker is definitively not a conwoman.
In the meantime, Val is on a quest for the lyrics she discovered final Misplaced & Discovered day, and accuses Ellen of stealing it. Ellen admits she stole one thing, but it surely was the DIY Haircut guide and she or he’s truly been sporting a wig as a result of she butchered her hair.
Parker leaves to let the chums type their shit out and the remainder of the gang, plus a shock Hannah, gap up within the bar to experience out the hurricane. Quickly after Hannah’s arrival, Ellen will get a shady textual content from her meant for somebody named Eli, and she or he corners Hannah within the toilet about it and finds out she kissed a coworker the night time earlier than. Ellen is torn up about whether or not or to not inform Sid about it however ultimately Hannah confesses, letting Ellen off the hook.
On the opposite finish of the spectrum, Sophie and Jesse lastly get out of their very own approach and confess they nonetheless have emotions for each other and after Jesse breaks up with Parker, he and Sophie have a romantic hurricane kiss.
As anybody who watched the unique sequence is aware of, this doesn’t imply we’ve found the titular Father, but when we occur to not get a 3rd season, it’s a beautiful ending. For them at the very least. That stated, I do hope we get one other season and get to see Ellen go on extra homosexual adventures.

Excellent news, Jade is again! Nick’s non-binary beau is making an attempt to get to know Nick higher, however due to all of the supernatural shenanigans he has to minimize what he’s been as much as.

All of them instantly get eradicated and solely Nick is left to battle the Grims…after which Jade comes into the restaurant. As Nick and his ripped shirt has his 80s battle, he admits that he likes Jade and that this chaos is why he didn’t inform them the entire fact.

Later after they meet again up, Nick apologizes for holding again elements of himself, and Jade says they’re simply glad he’s lastly opening up, and really they’re having fun with lastly seeing the true Ned Nickerson. And in reality, they are saying, and I quote, “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.” I like them a lot.
