Beyond that, there is NO possible way that Ted, Lily, and Marshall would have actually believed that he was actually involved with Patrice. It was abundantly clear to fans that Patrice had to be a plot device to get Barney closer to Robin. If Barney really were dating Patrice, seriously, he would want and need an intervention. Hooking up with a fat chick is, to Barney, as taboo as contracting an STD or banging a terrorist. The answer is no. I am the Bill and Melinda Gates of the sympathy bang. At the end of this episode, we see a visual representation of the emotional baggage that people carry around with them. Fans were seriously thrown by this; how could it be???
