Lily and Marshall were always
destined to be together. Even throughout their short-lived break, Lily was always Marshall's physical and metaphorical anchor. The stable
relationship between the pair has created a bond which no other two characters on
How I Met Your Mother managed to achieve, not even the couple the entire show is centred around.
Although she may not be the
first character fans think of in connection to How I Met Your Mother's roaring
success, Lily's input should not be underestimated in regards to the show's
organic growth and development.
She may act like a child when
she doesn’t get her way, and have some serious parental issues, but Lily is
filled with more wise words than pretty much all of the cast combined. Sometimes
philosophical, sometimes simply just straight talking, the whole gang gravitated towards her to open up - even the emotionally inept Barney turned to Lily from
time to time.
How well do you know Lily
Aldrin? Do you really know the mother hen of the group?
