BangerMain Posted March 4, 2013 Posted March 4, 2013 (edited) In the fall-winter I thought with the Raj episode that they were building up to Amy wanting sex, Sheldon resisting and having her dump him (not forever). Doug and I discussed this as it would parallel Penny-Leonard, with Leonard dumping Penny for Alex. Then Doug said with the problems with 2 1/2 Men the writers might avoid all that and stick to safety. And I think that's the case so far, which is why it's so bumpy as the writers are really making it up as they go along; it's totally incoherent as you've all pointed out so well. Doug thought that Alex might be kept for the season finale, and I think that's the case as she's still in the show but really serves no purpose in the episodes. I have no clue what Sheldon-Amy will do... I don't think there is much worry about Leonard and Penny. They have been put at the edge of marriage with almost every issue either dealt with or given a method for building a solution. For the first time they now talk to each other about their fears and work through them. Alex is the device used to move Penny forward and she maybe used again to get her to the finish line. Penny now is the one who worries about a break-up, the thought throws her into a panic, Leonard instantly assures her he will not leave her. The writers are not about to change the attitude of Leonard's character after 6 years, there is nothing to gain and plenty to lose if they did. TPTB now have 20 million viewers following this current path and rocking the boat won't make the majority of them happy. As for my old adversary, Doug, where is he anyway? I miss our prediction battles on couple break-ups. Edited March 4, 2013 by BangerMain Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
