Itwasdestined Posted November 1, 2014 Posted November 1, 2014 (edited) I think it's part of developing a story arc to challenge the Howardette marriage. There's a lot of tension building there based on Howard taking her for granted - she does all the work at home, she's the chief breadwinner, subconsciously she feels Howard sees her as Mrs Wolowitz's replacement as his carer. She seems to react badly to Howard spending money on frivolous geek culture stuff, maybe because she sees him more interested in that than her. Pre marriage in seasons 3, 4 and 5, there are doubts raised about Howard's opinion of her hotness compared to other women he fantasises about or how she got Glenn interested in her. Now we have the writers having people recognise her sexual appeal, followed by Howard dropping her naked body in excitement about geeky ideas for his birthday party! In terms of her girl friends, she sees Leonard worshipping Penny and Amy so excited about every development in her relationship with Sheldon. Even Raj now has someone which means she's not getting the attention from him she may well have secretly noticed as is missing. FFS, even Stuart is getting attention from Howard because of Debbie. And the boys in general seem to be spending a lot more time together this season than the last couple - Penny and Amy seem comfortable with that, Bernie I'm not sure. I think she feels her relationship is stuck in a rut - an early stage seven year itch. Penny is in the exciting engaged phase, Amy is in milestone phase, Raj is in early days excitement phase and her and Howard are fighting over who empties the dishwasher! Her frustration is reaching breaking point so she is lashing out at any target. Howard's Bernadette song is a lifetime ago. The Howardette needs another moment stat!
