After stopping at the WWN building Ted convinces Robin to interrupt Barney and Patrice’s proposal.  On opening the door to the roof Robin sees a roof decorated with candles and flower petals. On the ground was a paper for Barney’s Play Book with the title “The Robin” which outlined all the things Barney did to get Robin back. She turns around, sees Barney and starts to speak sadly about Barney’s manipulation. He then told her to turn the paper over. On that side of the paper is says “Step 16: Hope she says yes”. She lowers the paper to look at him and he was on his knees asking her to marry him. She concents with a “yes”  and the kiss.
