THE LATEST | Well, third time’s a charm…at least for Lily and Marshall. They are pregnant with their third child and wondering how a third kid is going to fit into their tiny apartment. Marshall suggests putting the crib in the bathtub because…well, why not?
AWW! | Or maybe a bigger place would be a better idea. Lily and Marshall decide it’s time to move out of their apartment – with the help of the cockamouse.
THE FORECAST | Judging by their three kids, blatant love for each other and enormous smiles, it’s nothing but sunshine and rainbows in their future. What’s your ruling, Judge Fudge?
THE LATEST | Ted and the mother (aka Tracy) meet at the Farhampton train station and share some laughs underneath the yellow umbrella. Flash forward to 2015: Ted and Tracy are soon-to-be married (in a castle!) until they get preggo. Seven years and two kids later, they finally get married.
OUCH! | Ted tells his kids that when he met their mother, he knew, “I have to love this woman as much as I can as long as I can.” As long as he can comes early as Tracy dies six years prior to Ted telling this story.
THE FORECAST | The yellow umbrella can’t shield them from the rain this time. Ted will have to brave the storm on his own.
THE LATEST | Barney decides that if it didn’t work with Robin, it isn’t going to work with anyone, so he might as well just go back to his old self. He embarks on a mission to have a perfect month — 31 girls in 31 days — which he achieves, but he comes out with more than he bargained for.
AWW! | Surprise! Barney has a daughter! We’re just shocked this didn’t happen sooner. Meet Ellie, the child of Barney and “Number 31.” In a moving father-daughter scene, Barney holds his baby girl, telling her “You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours forever.”
THE FORECAST | Surprisingly sunny. Barney has found the love of his life. As for Barney and 31? Well, it’s a good thing he has Ellie.
THE LATEST | After Robin and Barney’s divorce, and six years after Tracy’s death, Ted’s kids point out how absent their mother was from this nine season-long story. Convinced that Ted is in love with their Aunt Robin, Penny and Luke convince him to try it again.
AWW! | After getting the OK from his kids, Ted makes one last grand gesture and shows up at of Robin’s apartment, blue french horn in tow.
THE FORECAST | The skies are clearing up for the divorcee and the widower, as Ted holds up the “Smurf penis,” just like he did in the pilot.
THE LATEST | Tom, being the oh-so-sweet husband that he is, surprises Liz with pancakes for breakfast and proceeds to get down on one knee and say, “Elizabeth, will you marry me so we can continue this charade that is our marriage?” Liz puts on a big fake smile and accepts his proposal to renew their vows.
AWW? | Liz yells, “I wanna marry this man!” before the couple exchanges some implicit threats in the form of vows. Tom tells his target wife that, with her, he does not need to pretend. Liz has a feeling it’s going to be “one hell of a ride,” and we’ve got that same feeling.
THE FORECAST | An umbrella may be needed for flying objects. They can’t pretend forever.
THE LATEST | Right as things finally start to happen with Mindy and Danny, a Mariachi band is sent to her apartment by Cliff, who’s trying to win her back. Naturally, Mindy plays the crazy card to end it with him, but that plan is squashed when his grandmother dies and Mindy (and Danny!) must attend the funeral.
AWW! | Sorry, Cliff, but three’s a crowd so Danny and Mindy sneak away and make out in the church. Oh, and also knock over some candles. Whoops! (Well, Danny did ask for a sign…)
THE LATEST | Mercedes moves back to New York and decides to rent her extra room to Blaine and Sam, which could be an issue considering all that “sexual chemistry” she has with her ex-boyfriend. (Sam’s words, not ours.)
OUCH! | Sam goes in for a kiss and ends up talking to the hand. “I will bite your wax lips off!” Mercedes threatens.
THE FORECAST | 100-percent chance of awkward. Sam is still all about Mercedes, but she’s determined to keep things platonic. “We play by my rules, or not at all,” she tells him. (We’ll see how long that lasts.)
THE LATEST | Welp, now that everyone knows about Maddie Claybourne, Rayna goes to find Deacon, thinking that he may be drowning his sorrows in alcohol. She discovers the remains of his frantic search for alcohol (but he didn’t drink it!) and learns his fit of anger was not because of Maddie. (We’re looking at you, Teddy.)
OUCH! | In a long overdue talk at Deacon’s river house, Deacon asks why Rayna didn’t tell him about Maddie when she was 3 or 5 or 10 so he could sing her to sleep or hold her when she was scared. Voice cracking and all, Rayna tells him, “I wanted to be your wife,” and he couldn’t provide a loving home.
THE FORECAST | Those river skies are looking cloudy, but hopefully not for long. With that awkward talk out of the way and Luke starting to act…weird, we’re expecting a Rayna-Deacon hookup by the end of the season.
THE LATEST |Chicago Fire’s Severide is brought into an investigation, giving him plenty of time to catch up with Lindsay — and plenty of time for him to steal her paperweight.
AWW! | Severide shows up at Lindsay’s door to return said paperweight, and his bold plan pays off. They kiss in her doorway. And then they kiss again. And then again. Then it’s bedtime for Lindsay, and Severide strolls off into the night.
THE FORECAST | Hot, steamy kisses! Good thing there’s a firefighter around.
THE LATEST | When Sydney forbids Andrew from dating her new assistant Allie, he goes out with her anyway — but ends up not liking her. After Allie bawls her eyes out and calls out of work (Pull yourself together, girl!), Sydney tells Andrew he must go out with her again to make her hate him and feel better.
OUCH! | Plot twist: Sydney’s plan backfires; Andrew likes Allie and they bond over a love of German board games.
THE FORECAST | Guaranteed jealousy, as Lauren points out. (Better luck next time, Sydney.)
THE LATEST | Julia hesitantly agrees to go on a date with Ed, takes off her wedding ring, flirts a little — but then decides she is not ready for this. Well, not ready for Ed, anyway.
AWW! | But she is ready for Mr. Knight. Julia goes home with him after the record release party and they end up sleeping together.
THE FORECAST | Julia’s storm rages on when Joel shows up at her door next week, making things even more confusing for her. And if something doesn’t go down in the next episode, it will in the April 17 finale.
THE LATEST | Joel is off to tinseltown, and he and Zoe decide that they can make a long distance relationship work, despite the 75-percent failure rate. Between interrupted Skype dates and cancelled flights, they just can’t seem to make it work, so Zoe decides a surprise visit is in order.
OUCH! | That visit is not the biggest surprise, though. Joel’s movie has been fast tracked…to London! Zoe says she can’t join him there, and they decide to break-up — oh my bad, Joel — I mean they go on a break.
THE FORECAST | 75-percent chance of a breakup. Joel may not be in Bluebell, but Wade and George are!
THE LATEST | Fearing the worst about Kensi’s predicament (and then truly fearing the very worst about her fate), Deeks leaned on a Muslim cleric for intel, ultimately going to — but then dialing back on — extremes to get what he needed. Ultimately his actions pay off, leading into an exchange of prisoners — the cleric for a bloodied, beaten Kensi and Jack.
(GULP!) | Despite a fleeting rumor to the contrary, Kensi is alive but she is far from well. After bidding farewell to Jack, the shell-shocked agent is cradled in Deeks’ arms, eventually confessing through tears, “It was really bad.”
THE FORECAST | Dark skies ahead, as Kensi faces her own battle with PTSD. Will her and Deeks’ “thing” help give her the strength to move forward?
THE LATEST | Upon retrieving an old letter that, in a new context, confirms her relation to Zelena, a saddened Regina retreats into the woods — where she ultimately shares the letter’s contents with a compassionate Robin Hood. “If [Rumplestiltskin] the man who taught me everything I know about magic thinks she is stronger than I am,” she frets, “then there is no way I can win this fight.”
AWWW | Regina and Robin apparently then collaborated on a switcheroo, sending the Evil Queen into the showdown minus her heart, which the prince of Thieves stood guard over. After thwarting Zelena, for now, Regina literally gave Robin her heart, asking her soul mate to safeguard it for the time being.
THE FORECAST | Partly sunny with a good chance of drinks! Once Regina gets the witch sitch under control, it’ll be full steam ahead for this soul (mate) train.
THE LATEST | As a bout of the flu sweeps through the halls of Grey Sloan, felling many physicians with it, Derek remained steadfast in his resolve to withstand the bug, at least long enough to deliver a VIP presentation on his brain-mapping project. Alas, just as “show time” arrives, McDreamy becomes full-on McQueasy and collapses.
AWWW | Derek was unable to deliver his crucial presentation — but Meredith, having heard him rehearse the spiel enough times, stepped forward, he sees on video, and wowed the crowd in his stead.
THE FORECAST | Healthy as ever. It’s comforting to know that even 10 seasons in, these two still got it!
THE LATEST | When Ian refuses to get out of bed, Mickey is there to help – but is worried and has no idea what is going on. He calls in Ian’s siblings for help and they think that it might be bipolar disorder.
OUCH! | When Fiona suggests that they take Ian to the hospital, Mickey freaks out at the thought of him going to a psych ward and insists, “I can take care of him!”
THE FORECAST | Dark and gloomy skies but hopefully these two can weather it together.
