Our favorite group of 30-somethings is finally growing up and Robin is leading the pack. Sure, landing yourself court-mandated therapy doesn’t exactly make you the picture of mental health, but Robin is finally acting like an adult. Up until this point, the five friends have schemed to get what they want out of life, going to outrageous lengths to control things that ultimately cannot be controlled. Ted does it with romance to no avail, Barney does it with women and has a hilariously creepy success rate and Robin tried it with Barney. She wanted him and that was all that mattered, even if it meant drunkenly eating cake under a desk. The feelings of those around her never entered the picture until she dealt with her own true feelings. She loves Barney, but not in the selfish way she had before; this is a mature, adult way that actually requires sacrifice. After talking to Ted, Robin comes to terms with this new kind of love that isn’t about thrusting yourself upon someone, but about caring enough to allow them to be happy — even if it’s with your annoyingly perfect co-worker. Maybe tackling a relationship saboteur isn’t the most mature way to handle the situation, but sacrificing your own happiness for someone else’s is. While her legal troubles prove she has a long way to go until becoming a full-fledged grown up, Robin is finally showing signs of appropriate aunt behavior.
