Contains spoilers for 'How I Met Your Father' Episode 4

Josh Peck and Hilary Duff's Drew and Sophie are the focus in 'How I Met Your Father' Episode 4 as the duo take their budding romance a step further in the form date and her birthday party. The other plot points suggest that Valentina and Charlie realize that their relationship is a lot more exclusive than it comes across as. The other heartening storyline is that of Jesse and Ellen who realize that although they were siblings, they never really quite knew a lot about each other.

The Jesse-Sophie potential romance takes a backseat and that might hurt 'HIMYF' fans a bit as there is that strong faith that these are the duo that will end up being together. It is hard to imagine why Drew or Sophie would call it off with each other after getting off to a cute and aww-inducing start. 'Dirty Thirty' is a light watch, but it does put out some serious messages in a funny vein. Valentina and Charlie getting some screentime is refreshing as they were pretty much at the back after the pilot.

This chapter really tries to tug the heartstrings. Each storyline ends in a scene where the key characters share their feelings. Safe to say, the show is getting a step closer to becoming its own thing rather than dwelling on the same template the OG show took. Jesse's parent's divorce and how he takes it just makes it a lot easier to like his character who is already a fan favorite. Lowell plays his part to perfection as the brother who never knew or understood much about his sister. Valentina and Charlie are a solid pair and rightfully so. Her oomph and confidence coupled with the man's dry and typical Brit humor make for a fun watch. They manage to induce laughter every time they're on screen.
