Why Does Jesse Break Up With Meredith in How I Met Your Father Season 2 Episode 5?
Jesse accepts Meredith back into his life with a lot of hope. He believes she is mature enough to write a song about their separation and return to him. Meredith, however, changes as a person the moment she returns. First and foremost, Jesse enters a series of promotional events that boosts the singer's fame and her tour. Meredith even fakes intimacy and affection for the sake of her promotional events.
Jesse has refused to express his feelings since they reconnected as partners. She refuses to suggest whether or not Ellen is comfortable with their busy schedules or other promotional activities. Just like Sid has warned him, Meredith becomes passive when Meredith uses his embarrassing proposal in the music video of "Jay Street."
Jesse tries again to convince her that he is okay with the same, but Meredith demands that she come to terms with the music video. Jesse realizes that she doesn't like him. He eventually falls in love.
Do Jesse and Sid Reunite?
After their fight, Jesse and Sid reunite. Charlie plans a series of meetings to lead his boss to Jesse for them to become best friends again.
Jesse, on the other hand, realizes how Sid has always been correct about Meredith. He understands that he must forgive Sid for refusing to listen to his best friend because he doesn't listen to him. He lets him know that he shouldn't have dismissed his opinions without looking into them.
