    Apparently boats make Leonard extra appealing 🤷‍♀️

    The show is basically down to three storylines to cover 10 episodes. Obviously some one plot one episode stories mixed in. Here’s my theories: Sheldon/Shamy: obviously next weeks episiode about the Nobel nomination which includes the suggestion of no Amy. There is two ways in my mind how this goes. Either Siebert gets her put on there or not. If he does the story is really done and they wait to see if they win. If he doesn’t it seems Sheldon has a decision. He takes his name off the nomination or he doesn’t. My sense he does. I’m not sure you will know if they would of won the Nobel Prize or not. Turn to YS to find out? Lenny: it seems to me there going out of the way to have Zack asking Leonard to donate sperm just for the heck of it. JMO but I’m thinking Marissa is going to be a dark haired version of Penny. Also Marissa is coming back in a later episode. I’m guessing something is going to be said that changes Penny’s mind. Just like the Shamy storyline I think this is going down to the final episode. Raj: I think that is going to come down to him and Anu getting married in the final or next to final episode. The details themselves I don’t really care. Stuart and Denise is some how going to be part of this

    I found it interesting that there were so many current or past actors who have been associated with Chuck Lorre at the Golden Globes as presenters or nominees. Besides Chuck: Johnny, Jim, and Kaley. Michael Douglass Allison Janey Octavia Spenser Regina King Melissa McCarthy.

    As I said in the DT, I think there are two options regarding the working for Bernadette plot: 1. As opposed to her stopping Bernadette from hiring someone else, she did not stop Leonard from having someone else be the mother of his biological child, meaning she really doesn't want to have kids. 2. They are trying to hint that, just like in the case of the job, Penny said that she didn't want kids but in fact it's not that she really doesn't want them and she made the decision not to have them because she is nervous about it, afraid of the change in the life she has now, which she sees as good. This is among the writers' best options out of the corner they've written themselves into in 12×03 if they do decide to end with Lenny having kids or at least undecided about that (as opposed to most probably not having kids as is their state for now). Instead of going "oops, she changed her mind again" which is a worse representation of people who don't want kids* and can be countered by "well, who say she won't change her mind again?", they'd be saying she didn't really not want kids. I'm saying "among" the best options because IMO if they go with simply "nervous", and not some more serious fear/insecurities/self-doubt, then why didn't she just tell Leonard? Anyway, if this is the case they may have her stop Leonard when he's about to get the "stuff" out or about to hand it to Marissa (if they feel more whacky they may have Penny hand Marissa something else, like a gel or something, instead of Leonard's sperm, and if they're extra-extra-whacky they could do the whacky thing I jokingly suggested, which is have Penny give Marissa something else and take the sperm for herself XD and then Penny will get pregnant and Zack will accuse her of stealing the baby XD XD Again I'm just joking!). *This option is ideal as a representation of people who don't want kids either, because it's a little like saying they're just nervous or scared of it, which is kind of supported with Bernadette's case. That's why I keep saying they wrote themselves into a corner with 12×03.

    I don’t think Penny’s pregnancy would affect Sheldon’s life that much. The writers still have an opportunity to create a decent pregnancy plot for Lenny that won’t steal Sheldon/Shamy thunder. Though I highly doubt they care about Lenny that much now to give them their well deserved happiness 💔

    Does it means you should feel obligated not to have kids, if you spouse doesn't want them, and doesn't tell you that before marriage? But it's OK to want kids, and not be told your spouse doesn't want them before getting married? And not telling your spouse you don't want kids before marriage doesn't lead to resentment? Do you mean her "Sure Someday" guns? Or the guns where she said: Leonard " We've been married two years should we think about what's next.. like buying a house or having a baby?". Penny "Look I want to do all those things someday". So you feel Penny had no obligation, to tell Leonard when he talked about it, "no, I don't want kids." ? He also wanted kids, but it doesn't look like he is going to get that.

    Wow ! So Zack has made more money from selling his business than I thought. You'd think he could afford to go to an anonymous high IQ sperm bank.

    This could be the time to go back to visit nurse Althea at the sperm bank. I think there is a lot of scenarios there

    Oh yes and on the ultrasonic scan-pics we'll see that Penny will have twins. (we must have the smart and beautiful babies)

    Last night again CBS used TBBT as a fill in for an empty programming spot. I can’t understand what they will do when the show ends because YS is not TBBT. Why they already haven’t come out with a plan for a spin-off amazes me.

    I'd love that, but I don't think they'll do that, unless they use a doll or just a baby sound with the baby being off screen. Another possibility I would love but don't think will happen is showing their kids in the far future as young adults, just a small peek at the future generation.

    Agree! But I’d love to see a time jump with little Hofstadters 🐥 Daaaamn, I didn’t even think of the the first option, now it sounds to me even more logical than the second one 😅

    In my opinion, Penny's snarkiness has been off and on. Especially the last 2 to 3 seasons. I never know which Penny will show up! The loving her husband Penny and the snarky to her husband Penny have been quite evident the last few seasons!

    Then there is no point to this Lenny plot. I don't buy the theory there isn't enough time. The Shamy plot is basically wrapped up

    Marriage is a partnership, but I don't think that means feeling obligated to have kids just because your spouse really wants to. Of course you should have serious discussions about the subject, but it would be horrible to be forced into having kids when you really don't want them. That can lead to resentment which is not good for a relationship or the kid. I hope Penny sticks to her guns. She has never seemed overjoyed at the prospect of having kids. Luke warm at best. From what I can tell they have never really had a serious sit down talk. Mostly Leonard talking about it. Penny just saying "sure, someday" I didn't notice any smiles or a look of joy at the thought of having babies. Mostly I saw indifference to the idea.

    THAT was not good[emoji35] I don’t care that Lenny were so sweet on the boat before the bombshell and kissed.....that was not good. I don’t care Penny decided not to have kids without discussing it....... that was not good I don’t care that both Penny and Leonard both have reason to be annoyed with the other ...... that was not good I don’t care that Penny was the bigger person and thought it was Leonard’s decision since she made hers.....that was not good I don’t care that Penny was so sweet to say they couldn’t have chosen a better person ..... that was not good I don’t care that we haven’t seen the decision yet so he might say no still and I’ve uncharacteristically complained early.......that was not good I don’t care that the story might still turn around and Lenny get the ending we’ve wanted for nearly 12 years.........that was not good That just was not good. FOR ME - Worse than the BS Boat kiss Worse than the bowling alley Worse than Priya Worse than the Raj thing Worse than Penny nearly ending it at the start of Season 6 Worse than years of being trapped behind a kitchen island with nothing to do Worse than Penny having years of no success Worse than Leonard being constantly devalued by every friend That was not good. The show is poorer for the writers thinking this was a good idea Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You have to consider Penny’s world. The last time you saw Penny’s friends in a group setting was the Football game back on season 3. I just saw the episode last night with Penny’s father telling Leonard how stupid Penny’s ex boyfriends were. The last person who you would consider Penny’s friend is Zack. Penny’s friends are the other 6. The problem is really Penny’s issue and avoiding the real problem. It’s been said she is worried about her body being different after kids, her career is going well and life is good. Those are valid reasons but not necessarily the real reasons. It’s been said it’s obvious she doesn’t want kids because she’s letting Leonard decide about donating. I don’t buy that at all. I think she was thrown for a loop when he didn’t say no. Obviously B and A didn’t side with her and at that moment she had no input into the decision though I’m not sure any woman would be happy their husband getting pregnant another woman. I think Leonard would love any kid they would have. I’m not sure Penny totally sees that but this Zack storyline might change that.

    If you look at it logically, I think so too. However, the writers don't always think through the implications of their plots and may ignore something like that if they want to. I'm not saying the second option will happen though, I have no idea what's on their minds. I've been saying that for quite a while! Haha That is the spin-off I would most like to see! Funny future jokes, the products of the great BBT prop division, and some guest appearances of the gang in their late 50s/early 60s here and there.

    Totally agree. Though, Sheldon thinks everything effects him.

    I was thinking about the whole kids thing and I think there is a good chance Lenny won’t have kids. The reason I say that is in previous seasons the writers probably had Penny agreeable to having children because they could use it in a future plot since they were working on a show that had no end in sight. However, now that they have an ending date and they need to make Sheldon’s life wonderful at the end, they don’t have the time to do a plot, that would extend over the remaining episodes, of Penny being pregnant. It boils down to basically, they have to tell their Sheldon story so Lenny fans have to suffer because, there is no more time for that couple that involves a pregnancy story for Penny. Also, I don’t remember if this has been said before, does Penny seem a little more like Katie after season 6? It just seems that Penny was much more loving towards Leonard in the first half of the show, then she got more more snarky the second half, like Katie was acting in the pilot.

    I like the art of acting! There is no business like show business. But there are still enough people getting fooled by those writers. 😉

    I think it's more like trying to even out the unfairness... She out of the blue just told him he won't have kids even though this possibility never came up before and he may be forever uncomfortable/sad/frustrated/upset with them not having kids, so she's willing for him to have a biological child even though she may be uncomfortable with it. I personally do not see how people get "lukewarm" from that, especially combining it with the intonation. Again, I would put money that Kaley would say she was acting "on board" (if asked in a way that does not prompt an insincere answer for the sake of the writers and the show).

    Honestly you are probably right, i think the writers are determined to put all the effort into Sheldon/Shamy even though they know it's the final season. I wish we had got a Penny pregnancy story line because i believe it could of been great. But given that it would take away from the Sheldon/ Shamy fest. I think the writers had no intention ever to do one. As for Penny being more like Katie ...hmn i think in S9 &10 she May be was. I still have a little bit of hope that in one of the last episodes of the show Penny tells Leonard she's pregnant. At least that would be something good to end the show on for Lenny.

    Yaaas perfect please contact Chuck Lorre 😂😭 I don’t think a possibility of having not super intellectual kids is the reason for Penny. Could be a reason for Sheldon though... 😅

    You got kids, chucky? ( genuine question, not saying you can’t have an opinion without them) As someone who has had kids the “traditional, biological” way, and have friends who have done both IVF and adoption/fostering, and I suppose as a teacher of 31 years who has helped kids from far from ideal family environments pick themselves up, it would be my feeling from my experiences that the joy of adopting a child who has missed out on the love of parents and getting the opportunity to make their lives better while at the same time getting the opportunity to be a parent, something you thought you’d never be due to your own circumstances, would possibly even exceed the experience of your “normal” procreate/birth/parent experience. I’m not sure I want this to be the case and I think it goes beyond the simplistic thinking of TPTB of TBBT, but IF Leonard is found to be infertile, IF we find out Penny is more worried about the pregnancy bit but not the parenting bit and IF she suggests adoption, I’d be OK with that IF Leonard sees it as a way to raise a kid to have a happier life than he did as a child EXCEPT I want this to stay a comedy AND We’ve seen it before in Friends with Monica and Chandler and Big Bang is not the same kind of comedy that would deal with it as sweetly as Friends did. I just want a satisfying, happy finale for Lenny, both shopper and couple cos this thread would need more than group therapy intervention if it doesn’t happen[emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
