I don't think Leonard would ever kick Sheldon out of the apartment, Leonard is not that kind of guy.  But for the lease, after 7+ years, Leonard is probably a co-signer on the lease, so if it came up for renewal, while Sheldon was gone, and they couldn't contact him, it would only be logical that Leonard would solely take over the lease.  But again that shouldn't make a difference because the Leonard character has too much empathy to kick Sheldon out into the street.

 

But do we even have a clue as to how long Sheldon is going to be gone? The writer's have done these 3 months gone, time jump things before. do we assume that this is the standard for all of the season finale's? Sheldon could be gone a week and 8x1 could pick up there.

OK, Posting this quickly, About to jump on my last plane.

 

‘The Status Quo Combustion”

 

Its not word for word. There was a lot to take in at this taping. I realise there are a few other reports out there already. Ill go into much detail as possible. At least you guys will have a few different reports to read. Please bare in mind that taping reports can be quite difficult sometimes.. Taping can become very exhausting and there is a lot to take in. I didn’t take any notes this this is all from what I remember. 

 

As I said It will not be word for word.. But you will get the gernal jist of it.

 

 

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Scene 1: 4A

 

The scene opens with the gang in the apartment (apart from Raj). They are discussing Howard’s Mum. Raj walks into the apartment and greets the gang. Leonard puts his arm around Penny and announces to the gang that him and Penny have an announcement. Penny holds out her hand to show her hand to show the gang the ring and says excitedly that they are engaged! The gang apart from raj all jump to hug Leonard and Penny (apart from Sheldon. He of course gets up and walks over to Leonard but doesn’t hug, He does have a smile on his face though).

 

Raj then inter ups the gang and says “So that beats my news of me having sex with Emily”. The gang all run over to Raj jumping and clapping apart from Leonard and penny who are a bit taken back by having their thunder stolen. just to Add Sheldon walks over to Raj as well also looking quite excited which I found quite shocking.

 

(speaking together)

Penny: “Hey!”

Leonard: “What the Hell?”

 

Raj: “You guys get engaged all the time…”

 

Penny and Leonard then agree with him, they run to join to group excited and hugging.

 

 

Scene 2: Cafeteria 

 

Raj, Leonard and Howard are sitting with lunch and talking.. Raj was being cocky about his recent sexual encounter with Emily..

 

Raj: Oh I wonder why I am so hungry today?

Howard: Is it because you had sex the other night

Raj: You know I think that might be it..

 

The continue you the banter while Sheldon is walking into the cafeteria in the background. He is clearly shaken by something.. He sits down slowly, He is almost trying to guide himself to his seat. He looks very shocked.

 

Leonard: Are you ok?

Sheldon: No I’m not, I have just come from president Seaburts office, he has denied my request to change my field of study 

(he did say his new field, It was something cosmology I think)

 

Leonard: Oh no, why?

Sheldon: He said I was hired for String Theory, My funding is for String Theory and we all have to do things we don’t want to do. He then used an example by saying he didn’t want to look at my stupid face but he has to.

Quite frankly I’m outraged, So much so I am considering leaving the university.

 

Leonard: Now don’t go making any rash decisions, You are just frustrated right now

 

Raj: You know what I do when I’m frustrated? Have sex with a girl.

(They had a few takes with this for his facial expression, They tried cheeky smiles, cheeky grins and the way he said it. All were pretty much winners in comedy)

 

Sheldon gives him a stern look and then looks away.

 

Scene 3: Mrs Wolowitz house

 

Maria - The latest Mrs Wolowitz nurse.

 

Bernie: No please don’t leave!

 

Bernie is chasing Maria who is walking out of the house.

 

Maria: No I have boundaries (or something like this, Im not 100%)

While chasing after her.. Bernie: But you’ve only been here for a week and a half and you are already part of the family!

 

Door slams.

 

Bernie and Howard walk back into the living room looking disappointed.

 

Howard: Thats now 2 nurses..

Bernie: I don’t think the agency will send anymore.

Howard: We will just have to get used tot he fact that we are going to have to live here for a few months and take care of ma.

Bernie: But we both have jobs? We can’t do that!

Howard: We can take Vacation…

Bernie: I wanted to spend my vacate in Hawaii not hell…

Howard: (while sitting down) I don’t know what else to do… She is my mother.

Bernie: (while sitting down next to him): Oh Howie, I would do the same for my mother as well, And I am your wife so I should stick by you and her. So I want a divorce (she says jokingly while rubbing his leg)

Howard: (while putting his arm around her) That’s a wise move

 

Scene 4: 4A (leonard only) (pre shot)

I don’t remember this word for word but I will give you the run down

 

Leonard is sitting at his laptop skying with his mother,

 

Leonard: So I have some big news

Beverly: Ok

Leonard: Can you at least try and be happy for me?

 

Beverly then starts talking in her normal fashion, She then mentions that Sheldon had already told her about the engagement. Leonard is a little upset again about his mum keeping more contact with sheldon then her.. Beverly points out to Leonard “would you like me to keep more contact with you’ leonard just sits and ponders.

 

Beverly then goes onto say that Sheldon speaks fondly of Penny, So she accepts that they are getting married as she trusts Sheldon’s judgment.

 

Scene 5: Pennys Aprtment

 

The scene opens with Penny and Amy. Penny is on the phone to her mum talking abut the engagement. She in convincing her Mum that Leonard is a smart guy saying he is a scientist. Amy is pouring wine.

 

Penny: He works with Electronic magnets of some kind

-Amy strikes her a look

Penny: No I’m not pregnant,  (pause) Yes that is a first for our family, Ok got to go, tell Dad I love him, Bye!

 

Amy: Electric Magnets

Penny: Shut up.

 

Bernie enters the apartment looking drained. She throws her purse on the sofa and heads over to the kitchen while complaining about Howard’s Mother. Penny passes her a glass of wine that she finishes in 1 go.

 

Amy: So what’s the living arrangements going to be now? Do you think you and Leonard will mvd in together?

Penny: I don’t know we haven’t really spoken about it, But I suppose we will be now at some point.

Amy: Well that makes sense with you not having a job, It will help you financially

Bernie: Oh You don’t have a job, I have one for you! How would you like to be Mrs Wolowitz Nurse?

Penny: No

Bernie: We will pay you well

Penny: Ok

 

The scene cuts to the Wolowitz lounge and Penny walking out “no amount of money is worth this”

 

Scene 6: 4A Leonard and Sheldon at their laptops

 

Sheldon is writing a letter of appeal to the university regarding his change of field. He reads out the letter to Leonard. The letter is very formal and ended it with an unnecessary Sheldon Cooper style comment.

 

Leonard: Listen, Theres something I wanted to run by you

Sheldon: OK you have my attention

Leonard: With me and Penny now getting married, We will want to live together

Sheldon: Ah I have already thought about this. I am ready, on a trial bases of course, to Allow penny to live her for 1 day week, Excluding weeks of uterus lining shredding..

Leonard: Actually we were thinking of us living together, (he lowers his voice and says hesitantly) Without you..

Sheldon: Without me? I don’t understand? How will we live together if I’m not there?

Leonard: Me and Penny want to live together without you.

Sheldon: Well where will you go?

Leonard: I don’t know yet. Maybe I live with her, or we could live here and you could take her place (he says while getting up and walking to the kitchen)

 

Sheldon now stands up looking shocked. He starts to freak out for the first time.

 

Sheldon: Can you hear yourself? Have you taken a Majina? 

Leonard: No

Sheldon: Well what have you taken!? are you saying you would rather put your brides happiness before mine?

Leonard: yes

 

Sheldon says something here but I completely forgot sorry! He after this line he storms off into his room.

 

 

 

Scene 7: Amy’s Apartment

 

Amy is in the kitchen making Sheldon a Strawberry Quik while sheldon is pacing in her apartment.

 

Sheldon: Can you believe this, I can’t switch fields, I am outraged. Not to mention Leonard has the Audacity to suggest me moving into Penny’s apartment!

Amy: So what are you going to do?

Sheldon: I don’t know Amy..

Amy: Here drink this, It will make you feel better (passing him his beverage)

Sheldon: Thank you but I don’t think a pink beverage will make me feel any better.

*Sheldon takes a sip of his beverage”

 

 

“Oh Yummy” he say satisfactorily while he sits down.

 

Amy: You don’t know Sheldon, Maybe you will enjoy living on your own for a while. (she hesitates and speaks nervously) If not, You and I could always live together..

 

Sheldon looks up at her sharply. He starts to freak out again.

 

Sheldon: “Oh you would love that wouldn’t you, Why don’t we just get engaged, Buy a house, have kids and have them run off into the sunset..

 

Sheldon puts his drink down and gets up, He sounds quite angry and is clearly freaking out, He is speaking very aggressively now..

 

Sheldon:  No this is not happening Amy, Leonard is not moving out, You are not moving in, This change stops now. Oh and I saw you make this strawberry Quik with Syrup and Not powder!

Leonard and penny walk into to find Sheldon sitting on a bench. He has only his normal satchel with him. Leonard sits next to him. Sheldon is looking very lost and clearly he has reached a point where he can’t handle things anymore.

 

 

Leonard: Sheldon, What are you doing?

Sheldon: Leaving.

Leonard: Why?

Sheldon: Because of all this change

Leonard: but you have nothing with you, no clothes, no toothbrush, How are you going to go without all that?

Leonard: Where are you going?

Penny who is observing calls Leonard over.

 

Penny: Maybe we should let him go.

Leonard: He can’t look after himself

Penny: He will be ok Leonard, Maybe this is whats best. I know You will miss him I will miss him to.

 

Sheldon: Of course you will miss me.

Leonard: Ok.

 

Penny then walks over to sheldon who is sitting on the bench still, She hugs him from behind and gives him a kiss on the cheek and tells him to be carful.

 

Authors note: Can I just add. It was a very very sweet scene. It was really moving.. I was in shock and fight tears back.

 

Tag 1: Mrs Wolowitz house: 

 

Howard and Bernie are sitting on the sofa.. Mrs Wolowitz calls from her room. Stuart walks out the kitchen wearing blue overalls

 

Stuart: Coming Debbie!

Howard: You are calling her Debbie now?

Stuart: She insisted!

Howard: Okay….

Stuart: Listen thanks for this guys!

Mrs Wolowitz: OH STEWIE….

Stuart: Coming!

Final Tag: 4A Leonard, Penny and Amy

 

Amy pacing around on the phone.

 

Amy: Ok Sheldon, Well thanks for checkin in, bye.

 

Amy sits down on her spot on the sofa. Sheldons spot is empty

 

Penny: Is he ok?

Amy: Yeh he is fine, In fact he is sounding like his is really good

(Amy is looking pretty moved)

Penny: Penny See I told you he would be ok

Leonard: yeh he will b-

 

Amy reaches for a pillow and starts hitting Leonard frantically, She yells “HOW COULD YOU LET HIM GO”. She continues to hit leonard with the pillow until he falls over the sofa arm and crawls out of the apartment.

 

This scene was supposed to be funny, And I can see the comedy, but personally I’m stuck on the hard side of it..

 

And there folks, Is the Season 7 finale!

 

 

At first I was annoyed. I went into the taping expecting some heavy shaky considering what the season has been leading up to.. hints between them have been dropped. Last night I was pissed, But now after I have had some proper time to reflect, I feel that this is a pretty decent finale. It leaves the story open for season 8, and while shamy didn’t get the finale I was hoping for. Im now more optimistic for what S8 will bring.

 

I am looking forward to travelling to LA later in the year to attend Season 8 tapings! Bring it on guys! and thanks for a wonderful Season!

I agree with you about the lease. Leonard suggested moving out of his apartment after Sheldon suggested the three could live together on a trial basis but he was concerned about Penny's "uterus lining" in his bathroom. If Leonard had no right to say what he said either does Sheldon. But it seems that only Sheldon can say whatever he wants but Leonard can't according to some. why is that? He has no diagnosed mental problems that I know of. Sheldon claims his mother had him tested. So what his excuse for his behavior all these years? His only excuse to me is they let him.I agree. Although no one has seen that signed lease.


It's not about Sheldon being able to say whatever he wants.
What Sheldon said had nothing to do with kicking anyone out if their home. Again, although it was not at all realistic, Sheldon was trying to accommodate Leonard and Penny living together. He wants to maintain the status quo as much as possible, which means trying to fit Penny into their existing situation. That he doesn't want Penny there while she's on her period is part of the unrealistic aspect of his idea, but he's not suggesting that Leonard move out. He's trying to figure out a way for Penny to move in that won't disturb him too much.
What Leonard said amounted to saying that if he and Penny decided they wanted to live in 4A, then Sheldon would have to be the one to leave, despite the fact that Sheldon isn't the one getting married. Leonard wants to live with Penny without Sheldon being there, and that's fine, as long as he doesn't insist on pushing Sheldon out in order to move Penny in, which is what his suggestion means.

And it doesn't matter whether or not anyone has seen the lease. That's separate from the RA and is between each of the guys and the landlord of the building. If each of them is on the lease, then neither of them can make the other one move out.

Sheldon: You know what Stuart, I don’t always recognise sarcasm, But i do now. Its not only you who day is a disaster!

 

Sheldon then Storms out.

Leonard and Penny are siting on the sofa, Leonard mentions he hasn’t heard from Sheldon yet.

 

Penny: Im sure he is fine

Leonard: No I’m a little worried, Im going to find out where he is

Penny: How?

Leonard: I know his password, I can track his phone

Penny: Why do you know his password for that?

Leonard: It was a good idea ever since we lost him when he ran off to chase a balloon…

 

Leonard logs onto his laptop:

 

Leonard: Hmm thats weird..

Penny: What?

Leonard: It says he’s at the train station

Penny: So what he loves trains?

Leonard: Be but its late and dark out, we better go get him.

 

They both leave the apartment.

Stuart is still cleaning up the stow, Raj and howard walk in.

 

Raj: Dude, Im sorry.

Howard: Forgive me for saying, but You sure it wasn’t you who this this for the insurance?

Stuart: Thanks Howard you sound like My Mum, The police, My therapist and the insurance company…

Raj: Anything we can do?

Stuart: (To Raj) Actually I was going to ask If I could crash at yours for a few nights

Raj: Of course, Oh but emily was going to be staying tomorrow night

Stuart: Oh You are sleeping with her now? (he says excitingly) and hugs raj

Raj: Its ok, I can cancel

Stuart: oh no, I wouldn’t want to get way of your sex life.. Im only Homeless and all.

Howard: Hey I know a place you can stay and earn some money. The only problem is its humiliating and degrading

Stuart: So whats the catch?

 

Scene 12: Train station (pre taped)

(it was quite hard to get all the dialog form this one as it was only shown once once on the monitors, but heres the jist)

 

Leonard and penny walk into to find Sheldon sitting on a bench. He has only his normal satchel with him. Leonard sits next to him. Sheldon is looking very lost and clearly he has reached a point where he can’t handle things anymore.

 

 

Leonard: Sheldon, What are you doing?

Sheldon: Leaving.

Leonard: Why?

Sheldon: Because of all this change

Leonard: but you have nothing with you, no clothes, no toothbrush, How are you going to go without all that?

Leonard: Where are you going?

Sheldon: I don’t know

Leonard: So you are just going to ride the train?

Sheldon: I am not a Hobo. I have a creditcard. I will manage

Leonard: Come on you are being ridiculous

 

Penny who is observing calls Leonard over.

 

Penny: Maybe we should let him go.

Leonard: What?

Penny: Maybe this will be good for him

Leonard: He can’t look after himself

Penny: He will be ok Leonard, Maybe this is whats best. I know You will miss him I will miss him to.

 

Sheldon: Of course you will miss me.

Leonard: Ok.

 

Penny then walks over to sheldon who is sitting on the bench still, She hugs him from behind and gives him a kiss on the cheek and tells him to be carful.

 

Authors note: Can I just add. It was a very very sweet scene. It was really moving.. I was in shock and fight tears back.

 

Tag 1: Mrs Wolowitz house: 

 

Howard and Bernie are sitting on the sofa.. Mrs Wolowitz calls from her room. Stuart walks out the kitchen wearing blue overalls

 

Stuart: Coming Debbie!

Howard: You are calling her Debbie now?

Stuart: She insisted!

Howard: Okay….

Stuart: Listen thanks for this guys!

Mrs Wolowitz: OH STEWIE….

Stuart: Coming!

 

Stuart skips off into the bedroom. Howard and Bernie just look at each other shocked.

 

Final Tag: 4A Leonard, Penny and Amy

 

Amy pacing around on the phone.

 

Amy: Ok Sheldon, Well thanks for checkin in, bye.

 

Amy sits down on her spot on the sofa. Sheldons spot is empty

 

Penny: Is he ok?

Amy: Yeh he is fine, In fact he is sounding like his is really good

(Amy is looking pretty moved)

Penny: Penny See I told you he would be ok

Leonard: yeh he will b-

 

Amy reaches for a pillow and starts hitting Leonard frantically, She yells “HOW COULD YOU LET HIM GO”. She continues to hit leonard with the pillow until he falls over the sofa arm and crawls out of the apartment.

 

This scene was supposed to be funny, And I can see the comedy, but personally I’m stuck on the hard side of it..

 

And there folks, Is the Season 7 finale!

 

 

At first I was annoyed. I went into the taping expecting some heavy shaky considering what the season has been leading up to.. hints between them have been dropped. Last night I was pissed, But now after I have had some proper time to reflect, I feel that this is a pretty decent finale. It leaves the story open for season 8, and while shamy didn’t get the finale I was hoping for. Im now more optimistic for what S8 will bring.

 

I am looking forward to travelling to LA later in the year to attend Season 8 tapings! Bring it on guys! and thanks for a wonderful Season!

Thank you so much for taking the time to rewrite all this for us, Kazzie!!  I hope the flight went well and your headache is much better.  Did you find out who ate the chocolate you brought the cast?

 

When reading this the one thing that stands out is Sheldon saying he can't handle all the changes.  He's experienced so many changes in such a short time and he's not wired to handle it so his leaving makes perfect sense.  Yes, Amy didn't find out until he called to check in with her but SHE is the one he called to check in with, not Lenny so this shows he cares about her.  He's also not wired to filter what he says especially when he's stressed so that why what he says to Amy sounds as nasty as it does.

 

My son is the exact same way and getting away from it all to regroup and figure out what he should do next without all the outside stimuli stressing him out is how he handles it.  He comes back relaxed, focused and with a plan.

What Leonard said amounted to saying that if he and Penny decided they wanted to live in 4A, then Sheldon would have to be the one to leave, despite the fact that Sheldon isn't the one getting married. Leonard wants to live with Penny without Sheldon being there, and that's fine, as long as he doesn't insist on pushing Sheldon out in order to move Penny in, which is what his suggestion means.


I don't see that at all. Especially after kazzie's report above your post. How is Leonard coming up with several different possibilities, note he doesn't insist on one or says one or the other has to happen. Especially as Sheldon says at Amy's, "No this is not happening Amy, Leonard is not moving out, You are not moving in, This change stops now." Sheldon sounds like the one claiming something WILL happen not something that maybe could happen.

Look, I'm not saying that Leonard is a horrible person, just that the suggestion that Sheldon might move out to accommodate Penny moving in to his home, (where he would not be welcome if she were there) is an alternative that is rude on its face. It doesn't matter whether or not he insists on it or not.

I think Sheldon says, "Leonard's not moving out" because that's the simplest distillation of that conversation and it balances with "you're not moving in", but it doesn't change the fact that Leonard envisioned a possibility that included moving Penny into the apartment in place of Sheldon, whose home it is.

I never said that any of these scenarios is actually happening anytime soon. I'm just saying that such a suggestion is not a nice one.

Which I don't agree with (which is unusual as I normally agree with you). I happen to think it's actually giving Sheldon a way to manage things better, if he chooses to live by himself and not have anyone move in. I mean, without a roommate, 4B is smaller and easier to maintain for one person. Rent would also be cheaper if he doesnt have a roommate(I realize that it's been established that Sheldon dosen't use his entire salary, but why keep a two bedroom for only one person?). If Leonard was telling him Sheldon had to move out, or not wasn't giving Sheldon a choice, I would have no problem agreeing with you. I'm was starting to wonder if they are not setting it up for Sheldon and Penny to swap apartments (once Sheldon gets back), as a way of getting Leonard and Penny to move in together, by themselves, but keep the main set as it is.

It would also delay Amy's moving in because there would be no room in Penny's old apartment but there would be if Leonard moved in with Penny.  And unless Sheldon comes back having done a 360 about relationships, I don't think they are going to address Shamy living together for a bit...

Funny how Sheldon wants to stop these changes....but still wants to change his field of study from String theory which he gave up at what seemed to the first sign of real trouble...... so much for his dreaming.. his arrogance and his boasting about his intelligence...what a coward lol

Oh my goodness, this sounds exquisite.  This show can really hit a dramatic beat when it wants to ("I'm pretty sure it's already over" when Lenny broke up, when Penny let slip the ILY, anytime Howard talks about his dad, etc.) and now I can't wait to see this play out.  And the whole idea of him just drifting away to ride the rails...Aargh, now I've gotta keep my own expectations in check!

 

Thank you SO MUCH for all the detail, Kazzie!

It's going to be a long summer waiting to find out what happens.  When the first taping nears, we'll probably all be going nuts.  By my count it's 16-17 weeks from now.  The Comic-con panel in July seems really far away too.  We'll have to find things to do to keep our minds off of it.  Somebody wanna go over to the chat thread and recommend some good engrossing books?

I think I need to stay out of chat because I just end up disagreeing with everyone and being accused of having no empathy for Amy... :p

 

As for reading, if you mean just books (not fanfics) I would recommend anything by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo. :)

Or Zach, I know she write him off as being too dumb for her, but being with him couldn't be any less intellectually stimulating than playing nanny to her "sexy toddler". He is a very nice guy who would have a lot of love to give her. Plus, she could have the joy of knowing that she and Penny have been defiled by the same man. 

 

Woo!

I've probably said my opinion on this episode enough but it won't hurt one more time right?? I've read most of the comments but I may have missed one or two (or maybe more). Also excuse my mistakes I didn't sleep at all at night cause I had to work.

First of all I think what the writers decided to do at the finale was one of the possible outcomes. Actually, I think hardly anybody said that what they did do is OOC. It is IC but I highly doubt that if they took another route anyone would protest saying Sheldon should have left. Ok maybe except for notch who totally called the finale!!! :p So, yes it's probable for Sheldon under that amount of pressure to snap and decide to just leave and think. Actually, anyone could react that way I know people who did and don't have the issues Sheldon has. That is understandable and besides the fact that the "sending someone away" theme has become a little tedious I can see that story as a good way for the writers to tell what they want. I said before that I think it is a good storyline but poorly executed IMO. One of my biggest issues is that Sheldon was just going to leave without saying a word at anyone cause Lenny found him by chance. But it's not that absurd to expect that he would contact with Amy. And I mean before he left. The ideal would have been for him to ask her opinion on the matter(something he did in the past) but given that she was part of the pressure he could at least inform her in person. He admitted once he is a coward but I believe that in the important stuff he can manage just like he did with the kiss. It takes a lot of courage to leave aside the huge intimacy issues Sheldon has and the condescending attitude against anyone enjoying it and actually be a willing participant. He is all denial and as someone said kind of a drama queen but I think he can pull off some stressful situations just fine. That's why even in his greatest distress (and I think that not only because of the changes in his life but also because he finds himself enjoying some of the changes) I thought he would have the sanity to at least look her in the eye and tell her he needs some time alone.

About Lenny I get their point of view and tbh at this point they could only do so much. It striked a bit odd at first that no one - and Penny in particular - thought of calling Amy cause at the end of the day even if Sheldon is a better friend for them Amy is their friend too. They could at least suggest to Sheldon that he should call her and say goodbye. Lenny had the chance it's just wrong Amy didn't. Now supposing someone did call her and she ended up there somehow I wouldn't expect even for a second that she would talk him out of it. If Sheldon thinks that's good for him then that's good for him end of story. But instead of having a brilliant scene where Amy shows exactly what her "so much love" means and she urges him to find what it is he is looking for we get an L/S/P scene where Lenny act like his parents again. I am not saying it wasn't lovely. I bet it is either way I completely trust kaz (thanks to all the people who took the time to write a report :) ) and I will probably love it but I still think a scene with Amy being perfectly in synch with his needs and letting him go would be way better for me. So, I am not opposed on Sheldon leaving but how it was done. And what I am afraid even more is the way it will continue.

I get that whether someone thinks Sheldon's behaviour was acceptable or that he didn't need to contact Amy is quite a personal thing and it's hard to say the one or the other is wrong. I do think Amy loves him (and for what it's worth he loves her too) but sometimes I feel she is not unhappy but she is not happy either. I mean one cannot be excited and over the moon in a relationship where they literally wait for something to happen and I absolutely don't mean sex. I think what Amy wants is the closeness she could have with another person it being intellectual, emotional or physical. Yes Sheldon is trying but let's face it he is not always doing great. And granted that Sheldon doesn't seek that closeness with anyone (although when he comes closer with someone he does like it he is just too afraid to admit it) it's not surprising that he takes a lot more from this relationship than he gives. Plus he has a really difficult character which makes it nearly impossible for someone not to create that kind of relationship with Sheldon. And it's wonderful that Amy loves him just the way he is and she is willing to wait for anything she might want and go by his pace but I cannot overlook the fact that Aky is just a human being. Realistically there is only so much she can take but as she is written it looks like she can take everything without a complaint. If we had a tet-a-tet scene with her looking at his eyes and feeling at his distress I would buy it in a second. But now I don't want a saint Amy I want a believable one who has a limit and can reach it too. Yeah he is broken (and IMO she kinda is too) but she is not just putting up with her broken boyfriend. She should be dead honest with him when the case calls it. It was adorable that she tried to spare his feelings by not telling him he is annoying (and I don't believe she herself thought so she just knew some people did). But I think now he crossed a line. Amy doesn't know that but he brags about how he feels so secure in the relationship cause Amy can't be physical with another man while he knows very well that physical intimacy is something she wants but he has a pretty slick way to keep her frustrated while he is perfectly calm that she would never cheat on him. And I don't suggest that he should go out of his comfort zone and do something he is not ready for. But I would expect from him at least to provide her with the same level of security. Yes he won't cheat on her obviously. But is she certain that at the next big change he won't grab his stuff and storm out again without even informing her?? Of course she isn't and it's not that difficult for Sheldon to freak out. That's why I can't stress enough how that simple thing -that he said nothing - makes all the difference. It would be only natural for Amy to think that not four but ten or fifteen years later they could be still on the same place. And if for Sheldon it's "just four years" for Amy it "four years already" cause it's her life too and she needs to live it the way she wants. I think it would be really really interesting for her character to go through a crisis and question herself what many of us have been asking from times to times.Why is she in this relationship?? I don't get why it's ok for him to have second thoughts about it but if Amy was to do that she would be manipulative or putting pressure on him or whatever. I would despise a situation where Amy would say "move in with me if you want me" or "have sex with me". Asking for something meaningful and from the heart as she did is acceptable but that would be blackmail. What I want is a realization moment for Amy. She changed but does she realize how much?? I think it's only healthy for a person to sort out their priorites and decide what they want in life. If she decides she wants Sheldon despite the fact that he probably won't give her everything she wants then fine. But let her struggle with herself for a change!! Let her become stronger in this relationship!! What I love earlier this season was the Amy standing up for herself. The Amy who would gladly leave Sheldon take the bus if he is a jerk to her. I want for Amy to find her quirkiness again. And just see the girl who is a little broken too and doesn't quite know what to say or how to say it. I want Amy to stop struggling with Sheldon and start struggling wirh herself. Be a little damn more flawed and selfish and less saint!!!

Other than Amy's distress which is an itch I cannot scratch (if that brings something in memory :p ) I don't have a problem with the episode. And it is plain obvious that they have at least where they want this to end in mind (I mean the writers) even if they don't plan that far ahead cause IMO all these things going on weren't done in chance or to set up just Sheldon's departure. I want to believe that Sheldon won't come back a new better man all of a sudden. It would tell me that they didn't know how to change him so they used the "he went to a trip and suddenly saw it all clearly" trick which is lame. He could probably be a lot calmer and maybe have sort something out in his head and decide to try harder. But I don't want Amy to just take him back. I know they are not broken up but it's about time for that girl to be shaken up and ask some big questions on herself. I don't want her to break up with him out of rage(which I would totally get) or vengeance or as a means to win something. I would like for her to break up with him or just take a break and be reluctant to give herself again as a means of survival. He does that from the beginning and these guys are just so alike. Plus he shouldn't take her so much for granted. She unique and the best girlfriend he (or anyone really) could ever find. He needs to realize that.

Sorry, for this post it's probably the longest I have ever written here but when it come to Amy I just can't help myself. I consider myself more an Amy fan that a shamy shipper (there I said it tho I ship them BIG time!!!!) and everything depends on how her character gets treated next season for me. Someone pointed out she is the only one being sad at the finale and many times people have said that we know very little about her. I hope next season we get to see some episodes that focus on her and on her feelings rather than Sheldon's.

Is it crazy that I don't think Amy is unhappy in this relationship? Sure, he sometimes frustrates her, which is a given, and we know she'd like more intimacy, although I still maintain she is in no way ready for anything more than kissing just yet  (All talk, no action). However, I don't think she's feeling love-starved, either. Maybe I'm completely wrong. Maybe she SHOULD feel love-starved based on some of the comments we see Sheldon make to other people, but that's a whole 'nother cup of noodles. I think Sheldon needs to be more considerate and put her before himself more often, yes, and mocking her in this episode was uncalled for, but I think he's been doing pretty okay. Amy is a saint and I think she understands that when he's being clueless and insensitive (and yes, sometimes a bit crazy), it's not because he wants to hurt her.

 

I just wish Amy would say, "Sheldon, you hurt my feelings when you said this or that," and for Sheldon to show the same kind of maturity he's showed several times this season.

 

But I don't think Amy feels sad or trapped in the relationship, I really don't. I think he makes her happy.

 

What does Sheldon do to make Amy happy?

I don't get at all why you think Leonard cannot suggest something to Sheldon?  What social rule did he break?  They are best friends after all.  It's not like Leonard just STATED that Sheldon needed to leave his home.  He was offering up different scenarios.  What's the big deal?

 

Agreed Kasey.

 

Leonard's suggestion, in passing, of Sheldon living in Penny's apartment was a tiny part of the episode and had little to do with the plot. What Sheldon found disturbing is having to live without Leonard. It is a thread that has run through several episodes this season. He envisions Leonard driving him to Comicon when he's eighty years old, changing setting on his entertainment center without needing a remote, etc. Penny has always been the competition for Leonard's attention, with her fancy genitals and bending Leonard to her will not his. After all, Leonard is his "lump of clay".

 

Sheldon's idea of an accommodation with L/P is for him to live with them for the rest of his life. That's the big deal, not having Leonard suggest him moving into Penny's apartment.
