How I Met Your Mother Episode Recap: "Doppelgangers"

So remember a couple of weeks ago, when Lily and Marshall agreed that if they ever find Barney's doppelganger, they'll start trying to have a baby? That agreement is put to the test in the Season 5 finale, when they finally do catch a glimpse of Barney's lookalike. Meanwhile, Robin is offered a great opportunity — in Chicago. Robin has always put her career first, but will her budding relationship with Don complicate things?

Future Ted reminds his kids (and the viewers) that at this point in the story, the gang had managed to spot four doppelgangers: Lesbian Robin, Mustache Marshall, Stripper Lily, and Mexican Wrestler Ted. He also reminds us about Lily and Marshall's baby pact if Barney's double was ever spotted.
