Leonard And Penny Season 7 *spoiler* Discussion Thread


Disgusted

Recommended Posts

I don't know how you feel, but I'm just so happy, that they are still together. We get to see Penny acknowledge that he was right with hesitating and Leonard crying because of happiness. That's exactly what I wanted!

It seems that Sheldon is supporting penny and then thinking he is part of their relationship

 

My thoughts exactly, and I was hoping for something like this to happen.

 

Sheldon sees them struggling, and simply sits them down and makes them talk about it.

About what his motivations are, we can only speculate untill we actually see it on screen.

I'm sorry Sheldon telling her to pursue her dreams is so OOC for him. This is the same guy who suggested she take a porn job because she was doing so bad, she shouldn't be picky and that she could teach him acting because she was not working as an actress. Now he does a one-eighty and supports her, while Leonard is concerned about her quiting TCF, is sounds like the beginning of a Shenny story on fanfiction. Now add in no Amy and I ask WTF.

What's the problem now? The fact that Sheldon agrees on Penny quitting the CF and Leonard doesn't? The "Shenny" scenes or that Sheldon thinks he's part of the relationship?

 

Sheldon has quite no idea what a relationship is. This line was probably to show, that Sheldon thinks he will live with Leonard forever. He is NOT a part of their relationship. Penny's line "What is going on?" basically proves that. This is just something they will use for the laughter.

 

And for the CF thing: Leonard doesn't have to agree with all of her steps! I think it's good she did it on her own. That shows a lot of maturity. Leonard is not happy at first, but in the end he says he's proud of her for doing it. We all know (and Penny does too), that he always wants the best for his girl.

I though this was the Leonard & Penny thread not the 'omg it's becoming Shenny!' thread.

 

To me, it looks like Sheldon is the one who can see Penny and Leonard moving forward more than anybody else, and that scares him because to him that means he won't have Leonard there for much longer. He formed a special bond with Penny while Leonard was away so I think that's just something else for him to try and cling to in the change he can see. 

 

And what is wrong with Sheldon supporting Penny?! He found something he can relate to - even if it is refusing the be chalk monitor because he wanted to be a Physicist. Plus Penny sided with him on the element thing. He's allowed to be supportive of her. I don't see why that's OOC. Maybe he thinks her career is stupid and a failure but he understands the whole idea of 'this is what I want and I'm going to put everything into it'. 

 

Surely if we all ship Leonard and Penny here we should be happy that things are moving forward for them rather than making up these pessimistic ideas and getting in a kerfuffle over nothing.

Seems that we are the only ones around here, who focus on the positive things of this episode. Just the fact that Leonard is brave enough to talk to Penny about what happened last night, speaks for itself. I'm really looking forward how this scene will play out. Adorable, crying Leonard and Lenny hug incoming!!!

I just read the latest taping report and there are some funny lines in there.  As for Lenny, I am not real clear on where the writers are taking things.  It appears that L/P are still together which I am glad to see.  However, I do wonder what they are going to do with Penny.  Yes, she quit her job to pursue acting full time, but how is she suppose to pay her rent and other bills.  She never had much money to begin with.  I can see why Leonard would be uncomfortable with her decision. 

 

As for Sheldon's role, I don't have a problem with his involvement, I am just curious as to where this is leading.

Sorry guys, but I don't see any movement forward with Lenny in season 7, they are in the same place they were in at the end of season 6. If anything they were more of a team in the second half of season 6 than they are now. They talked things out in season 6 too, they don't talk as much as they did then, now. And you are telling me now that the only real result of Leonard's trip this summer was Sheldon and Penny got closer so he understands her better.

We see them together in Penny's apartment less and more of her in the guys apartment mostly when Sheldon is there. I really think the writers are writing more Shenny. Before you get mad at me, it is not romantic Shenny, but they are interacting those two more and it is to the detriment of the Lenny. You have already three scenes where it has been Shenny against Leonard, the first episode party scene when they called, the Penny understanding the element thing and siding with Sheldon, and now Sheldon and her agreeing about leaving TCF. Where is the parallel in season 6 or other seasons?

Added: I forgot the scavenger hunt where Sheldon and Penny are teamed and Penny is motivated to beat Leonard, so it is 4 episodes of Shenny goodness. How much Shamy goodness have we had during the same period.

I think it is very plausible that Sheldon has had a change of thought regarding Penny and her acting. His change of heart I feel happened last season in episode 6.17 "The Monster Isolation". When he invited her on "Fun With Flags" and she gave him some good sound advice regarding his technique. Then at the end of the episode when the three of them were watching her perform and they were all so proud of her. In fact the last lines of the episode Sheldon starts with:

 

Sheldon: She's remarkable

Leonard: She really is.

Amy: Our Penny is a star.

 

That opened all of their eyes, but I think gave Sheldon a new appreciation for Penny and her acting.

I'm focusing on the positive! I think the proposal will be readdressed and discussed, in a good way, in the near future. It has to be on both of their minds, as Penny once said you can't take something like that back. I have not been thrilled at the idea of Penny quitting her job, but I think it might be good for her to leave that behind (provided she finds another job). She very well may have enough to keep her afloat for the next couple months with her NCIS gig, once that runs out I wouldn't be surprised if they have her take a job somewhere else. Maybe the university. No way will either Leonard or Penny want her to be without work for a long period of time. 

 

Things are looking good for Leonard and Penny.

I noticed Penny siding with Sheldon and now Sheldon will be siding with Penny and it brings me back to 7.02 and how Penny went out of her way not to be seen taking sides. And it's back to Penny during everything to make Sheldon feel better even it doesn't make sense. I am so over the Lenny as the parents of the man/child Sheldon that we had to deal with in Season 3.

Just read the report...

 

Would be interesting to see what happens on Penny's career front now...how does she earn to money basically to do *anything*??

 

Anyway I thought before making a decision like to quit the CF , should'nt she have talked to Leonard atleast once about it before quitting... :unsure: :unsure:

 

 

And it is clear that Penny did not think once before proposing to Leonard...... imagine the reactions if Leonard would have said yes..  :p.

Sure Leonard and Penny are still together and you get Leonard crying over Penny again. What must of us wanted is so forward movement not a replay of Season 3 with Sheldon all in the mix of Lenny relationship.

First and foremost Penny, Sheldon and Leonard are the three main characters that live right next to each. (I still say they are actually all living together now in a three bedroom, two bath apartment.).But more importantly in the cases you mentioned they happened to side with each other because ultimately they had the better, logical argument. I don't see it as Shenny ganging up on Leonard. Its three family members discussing issues. Sometimes it is two against one on a particular issue, its called honesty.

The proposal was meaningless, just a conflict starter between Lenny, that is why it was blown so quickly off in the next taping report. Just like the Penny marriage, the writers are throwing things at us to cause conflict between Leonard and Penny because that is they only way they know how to write them funny. The show needs to get some writers who know how to write couple humor without putting the couple in conflict all the time.

I really need to get myself off the Lenny shipping lanes, that ship is getting less and less enjoyable.

I still think there is still something missing here. Penny's always had money problems and then she quits her job without saying anything to Leonard. He did consult with her when going to the North Sea. I don't see it being mature to quit her job without any plan. Penny's not 18 anymore. What in reality is she qualified to do? Waitress at another restaurant. I still think something big is going to happen during sweeps.

I posted this very thing earlier this morning about how Penny didn't even talk to Leonard about anything or how she will pay her bills without a job. Leonard at least let Penny have a say in North Sea trip where as gets it sprung on him after everything has happen.

Penny probably has money from the NCIS gig to keep her afloat for the time being. The difference between Leonard/North Sea and this is that the former involved Leonard moving away for four months, while this has no direct effect on her relationship. It was a decision she made for herself about her career. There's speculation about her needing to move in and all that, but as of now that is not the case. As long as it doesn't end up that way and we see her retain her independence I'm good. Quitting TCF might be good for her, she's been stuck at that job for a long time and it only seems to bring her down. She's been taking classes and has friends in high places, so I'm sure if the NCIS money runs out and she is still without an acting gig, she can find another job. One she likes better. Even if she wouldn't necessarily be qualified I think she has enough people skills that she'd manage to get hired if given an interview. Sheldon and Raj have managed to hold down jobs; so in this universe anything is possible.

As far as I am concerned ...

 

when something that big has a direct effect on her relationship or not  ....it clearly should'nt have prevented Penny from at-least telling Leonard before she quit...she owes him that atleast that much..... 

 

I would hope any partner of mine to do the same...and i would do the same...  :unsure:

 

Leonard acts like a *coward* again...fearing the wrath of Penny.... :( ....  I would have been pretty upset if my partner did something like this without even bothering to inform me..

It seems to me that everyone's predictions, including myself, have been wrong. I don't think anyone saw this taping report coming. At the end of this episode it appears that L/P/S will be living together. That's way too obvious. Penny quitting CF before sweeps was a surprise at least to me. I think there's more to this part of the story. I also don't agree with the people who think she is going to live off her NCIS check for any extended period of time. I guess we will have to wait for the taping reports in January.

That's fair. But it's not as if they're married and paying bills together, and she'd already made up her mind, so I don't see why people are making such an issue over her quitting TCF and letting Leonard know later. It may have been better if she'd told Leonard beforehand but I'm completely fine with the fact that she didn't. I'm glad to see her doing something about her career, even if it involves her taking a risk.
