804 The Hook-Up Reverberation (October 6) in Season 8 Posted 3 hours ago 8 hours ago, NeckShotLime said: Did Kaley ever say anything about it ? Except to talk about how upset Johnny and Simon were, I haven't seen anything. 8 hours ago, NeckShotLime said: No idea why the writers went there in the first place. Well, the writers were shipping Priya back to India. Then, in the latter half of the season you had Penny crying about Leonard and Priya, telling Sheldon the story about they guy she broke up with and that was even before the coffession to Raj that she screwed up. It may have been, along with the long distance relationship, a way to keep the from starting to go out again so quickly. I mean it was only five episodes from his breakup with Priya, until she accepted his asking her out. Although, it delayed it by seven episodes, so how effective was it really? 8 hours ago, NeckShotLime said: And as much as I loathe that story , I can't totally be mad at Raj because there was alcohol involved. Truth be told, I was actually more mad at Leonard at the end of season 3 when he slept with a drunk Penny when he was sober. I wish he had said no . Sorry I'm rambling, it's just that these stories of "drunk Penny and sex" don't always sit right with me A lot of us wish he had said no, but, from his reaction the next morning, I really wonder if by mentioning he destroyed dumb guys for her, he thought she was getting back together with him. I mean if they were back together, Leonard might think it was a normal reaction for her. With the Halloween episode, her kissing him was definitely not, in Leonard's experience at that time, normal behavior for her. All that said, the allusions and demonstrations of a drunk Penny engaging in sex can be a bit creepy now.
