Cool and Chill
Sophie's future son replies to her after she made herself some spaghetti and comments on her son's willingness to hear the rest of the story.
Sophie replies that she has nothing going on in her romantic life. He asks if he can take her out for a drink, and she replies that she can.
Valentina notices this and pulls Sophie aside to inquire what she's doing. Wasn't Sophie shocked by Jesse five minutes ago? But Sophie insists she won't allow Ian to get away again.
Sid and Hannah talk about their elopement as it was less dramatic than they anticipated. They decide to re-host a party at the bar so they have a good wedding story to tell. Valentina and Charlie tell everyone that they've broken up. When Ellen asks how they can simply turn off their attraction for one other, the two reply that they're "bros."
Jesse is all smiles when he meets Ian, but he and Sophie insist they have no problem whatsoever. Sid invites everyone to join him for his and Hannah's wedding party. Ian is also invited.
Sid hands out duties to everyone at the party. Jesse stops him when he tells Ellen to play the Electric Slide, referring to the time when he tried and failed to persuade college students to dance spontaneously.
Sophie tells everyone to be cool and quiet while Ian gets drinks. Do not reveal yourself to Ian about Jesse's involvement.
Ellen asks Jesse about what happened in his sleep. After Sophie freaked out and told him to go on tour with Meredith, they ended up making out. So, he called Meredith, and when she came over, he takes it all in.
Hannah's favourite cake for the party is ordered by Sid, but they go in the wrong order and end up with a fish dish instead.
Charlie and Valentina look for photographs of Hannah and Sid to pay tribute. Valentina accepts and pats Charlie's leg. Charlie does the same to Valentina.
Sophie dismisses Ian and orders Jesse to stop staring at him. Sophie tells Jesse to stop staring and makes a joke about exes returning to one's life that leaves Jesse confused.
Drew arrives at the party still reeling from his Sophie split and from the news that his father might be sentenced. He is drunk and has an orange-tinted spray tan as well as whitened teeth. When Ian arrives, he introduces himself as Sophie's ex.
Jesse confronts Ellen, posing a question to her. Ellen says she didn't tell her about Meredith.
Jesse and Drew come to talk to Sophie. She calls the room to her attention so Sid and Hannah may have their first dance. 'When A Man Loves A Woman,' Sophie begins her journey. Almost as a drunken Drew joins in.
Sophie admits to Jesse that she had never seen him before. Ian asks if she had met him within the 24 hours after she split with him and she replies yes.
Jesse says he was willing to spend his life with Meredith, but those feelings don't go away very easily. Sophie: he answers this and says she is surprised since she never expected him to leave him.
Ian appreciates Sophie's viewpoint and repeats the words she once said to him, "maybe someday." He wishes her goodnight and departs.
Charlie and Valentina tries to pay their thanks by posing their photo tribute to the happy couple, but their sex tape soon becomes a distraction. Sophie returns inside and tells Valentina that Ian walked away once more.
Sophie invites everyone to participate in the electric slide dance in an effort to cheer him up. Jesse apologizes to Sophie, who says she is sorry.
Sophie confesses that going through three guys in a day has put her at rock bottom, and the next Sophie says she'll do it again someday. She's not sure why she's going to be dating her dad, but it's Barney Stinson, the owner of the vehicle!
Future Sophie claims he'll find out who it's by the time his son arrives.
Season 2's episode 1 isn't exactly hilarious, but it's very enjoyable to return to the warmth of a familiar house.
The characters are still interesting and relatable, with the cast doing an excellent job of making them memorable. We settle into their lives and trajectories quite smoothly, picking up the threads where we last left them.
How I Met Your Father was reintroduced to the public with a bang, despite the fact that all of the jokes were lost. Ellen seems to be relegated to comic relief, and the flashback at the end of the episode is definitely just bait to keep people interested. These two need to watch 19 more episodes in order to prove their worth.
This is the kind of warm, wholesomeness that How I Met Your Father excels at. The humanity of the characters shines through these little things.
