Leonard And Penny Season 7 *spoiler* Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I sort of like the idea, the Shamys are spreading, that for Valentines Day that it is a two part episode, 6th and 13th of February.  It probably won't happen, but it is a nice thought.

Sure, why not. It's as good a idea as any.

Leonard better get a good padded hoody if Penny finds out about the SIK while she is sitting next to him or he will need a lot of ice for his bruised arm.

I get the idea that tptb are using this season to test the strength of the Lenny relationship and if they get through that then they will most likely move in together back end of next season, jmo

Thought about that. It hasn't been brought up since then but it broke the ice on the discussion. Maybe something will happen with L/P while they watch Cinnamon. Or maybe the whole thing was a set-up to get Raj and the Vet together. We'll see when they show the episode.

 

I mentioned a while ago that one possible profession for Penny could be dog walker. I hear they make 6 figures in New York.......

Well I would love to see the same kind of reaction from Penny for Leonard and their relationship, imo.

Well Penny is a Shamy shipper and Leonard is happy when Sheldon is occupied and not whining to him about something crazy.

I'm sort of convinced that this season's plan was to stall Lenny. So the comedy they are getting this season is from Lenny conflict, which seems to be the only type of couples comedy the writers know how to write, and comedy between Sheldon, Leonard and Penny. I don't expect any movement by Lenny now, and if there is any, it will be small. I also think all the issues we have seen this season, between Lenny, will be completely forgotten, except by romantic Shenny's, when the writers decide to move their relationship along again, it the future.

Nothing wrong with Penny being a Shamy fan. I just some of the same excitement for Lenny from Penny too.

I have to agree there most likely won't be any real movement for Leonard and Penny relationship which would be fine as long as there is no regression. Also, why can't Leonard have some type of storyline while there is no movement on the relationship from. We know the Penny arc will continue which is good but Leonard should have something else to do too.

Will be interested in the Star Wars taping on Tuesday since it appears it will be shown before the VD episode. It looks like the guys will be together. Wondering if the girls will be discussing Penny's proposal and quitting TCF?

I think there would be a scene with them discussing just such a subject. It would be nice if they asked her about her money situation and remind her that Leonard would help because he loves her and really does support her.

Nah, they'll probably have their own storyline like in Bakersfield. I don't think Bernadette or Amy would have much to say on either matter, Penny understands the risks that came with quitting and seems to want to put that proposal in the past.

I don't doubt they may have their own storyline and I'm not questioning Penny understands the risks of quitting. But since both want L/P to be together (and married)and it appears they haven't seen her since the NCIS party I can't imagine they will let it go without saying something.

Lenny was my favourite couple on the show (before Amy was introduced) and I loved the parts when they weren't together and it was mainly Leonard trying to 'get' Penny. I think one last break up is due and the last time they get together should be Penny actually proposing to Leonard.

Hell no to another break-up, what would be the purpose of that? All it would do is waste time, and any storyline that could be explored has already been done. People lose interest in a couple when they become annoyingly on-again, off-again. The show is better when they're together, and Penny has already proposed (meaning the marriage issue can no longer be a logical reason for them to break up).

I agree with DaisyJane.  Another break up of L/P would not make any sense and it would IMO cause a lost of interest.  Speaking for myself I know that I would lose interest because it would not make sense.

I kind of agree with this except I don't see logic having much to do with L/P. There are other more mysterious forces at work with/in them.

With another 3.5 seasons to go L/P will have their ups and downs but a break up is pretty remote IMO. Leonard and Penny will both do some stupid things but in the end they most likely be together. They love and care about each other.

I can't help feel a little disappointed in how Leonard and Penny were treated the last two episodes after now getting information on the upcoming episodes. The last two episodes do not seem to be part of a three story arc, which makes me wonder why they put so much drama in the middle of the season, when the only real result of it was that Penny quit TCF. I know they like to use conflict to create humor with Lenny, that seems to be the go to position with the writers for them, but the last two episodes went too far and got more WTFs then laughs. They also trashed Leonard's character some, making him less supportive, more insecure and more needy. Anyway, just wanted to vent how disappointed I was I how they are handling Lenny this season. Also a little tired how they are still using Leonard as a whipping boy.

On a happy note, it will be nice to see Shamy getting some loving, Amy deserves it after all these years.

I agree chances are they won't break-up and that logic has little to do with their relationship. I disagree that the mysterious forces at work are within them. The mysterious forces are not very mysterious actually. TPTB have always had Lenny's relationship centered in conflict using either outwardly issues like foolish things Leonard would say to ruin a great L/P moment or some inner demon that causes Penny to break-up because her education or lack there of was a detriment to them being together. However, if they had so chosen, the writers could have handled any and all of the reasons for past break-ups without them actually breaking them up. They just felt this was the easiest path to extend the storyline. The Lenny storyline without them together, engaged or married has to wait for the show centric Sheldon character. Until they felt comfortable to send Sheldon into the throws of puberty Lenny could not progress in their minds. There would be to many issues to be handled and questions to be answered. It's now seven years in and they are only now beginning to address those issues. I believe that if they had their way it wouldn't even had begun now. But they had a huge problem in that they could not string the L/P storyline any further without an ILY. Once that happened no matter what they felt the boulder started rolling downhill and it would be very difficult and beyond realism, even for a sitcom, to stop. So now, much to their chagrin, they have to have the great mind of Sheldon start thinking about more than how the universe began. No he has to think about how Amy's dandruff floats onto her shoulders. Next thing you now their beloved Sheldon actually does the unthinkable, he gives Amy a peck on the lips. It only took what 2 - 3 years.

The bottom line is they couldn't do anything further with Lenny until they fixed Sheldon. No serious proposal will happen now IMO until Shamy has moved closer to reality of two people in their thirties. If that means TPTB think a break-up of Lenny even short lived to buy more time for Sheldon to get his act together than they wouldn't hesitate one second to do that.

If the VD episode continues with Shamy and Howardette on the train and we see Lenny alone maybe one of them could suggest that they're practically living together already (I hope it's Penny) and then they decide to move in with each other.

It is a great idea, but I think the writers are not screwing with Lenny. Season 7 Snarky Penny thinks it is weird to do it in Sheldon's spot and calls Leonard a 9 minute wonder, while Happy Penny of season 3 thinks it is fun to do it in Sheldon's spot and thinks Leonard is a genius in bed. So both of them are being trashed this episode by the writers. Penny is becoming more a bitch and Leonard a moron in Season 7.

I can see how you can think that from the report. I rather see the actual episode. I remember everyone thinking Penny wasn't going to remember proposing because she was too drunk but that ended up not being true.

Jokes like that are pretty common staples on sitcoms, so I wouldn't get worked up about it. As for the spot, she wanted to make-out there, not have sex. There is a big difference.

What you have said is very true, however, like Chrismo, I want to see the episode first. But as of now I tend more to agree with SRAM in this case unfortunately. Edited by SodidIwin?
