What I'm Watching: How I Met Your Father

How I Met Your Father: Season 2, Episode 5 “Ride or Die” (B)

I’m glad that this whole Meredith thing appears to have come to an end without being dragged out for too long, and while it’s going to take some time for Jesse to be okay, at least he was able to stop it before he had to relive his trauma over and over again in an even more public way. Ellen was able to focus on her brother and be there for him, enough to push him to advocate for himself when Meredith completely shut him down because she was only interested in what her fans wanted to see. Charlie, on the other hand, is not in fact smarter than he seems, sending a very transparent cookie basket to Sid that he thought would cause him to experience dairy discomfort but instead required an epipen that he had taken thinking it was a vape pen. But the timing did work out very well, and it’s good for Sid not to be alone anymore, something that Hannah insisted he should be able to do for a short period of time. I was pleased to recognize Victor Rasuk from “The Baker and the Beauty” as Oscar, the guy who Valentina’s parents wanted to set Sophie up with, but that whole plotline got a bit convoluted with all the deception and attempts to own someone else. I do hope that we might see Oscar again in some capacity since I think he could be a good fit for either of them as they wait around before eventually going after Charlie and Jesse, respectively.
