S7 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

My guess is that Amy will have to be the rock he will cling to as every thing else shifts under his feet.

:cray: I need a moment

I just hope it doesn't change too much. I don't want the show and the guys to lose what made us fall in love with them. I have to admit, I'm taking the demise of the comic book store pretty hard. :(

I'm sure no one is giving this more consideration than the writers.

Kazzie, you absolutely rock. Thanks for all the info.

 

So unless Stuart moves in with Amy after the fire, :p , I think we can safely say the episode will have a good dose of Shamy. What I'm excited about is that the title includes the words "Status Quo", which is something the words I've been using for ages to say that I wanted it to be shaken. I guess combusted is another way of saying the same thing :p Lio has often called Amy's apartment "the love nest", one of the places Sheldon feels safest at, I am not surprised if he will run over there to seek safety. I actually suspect they will have him spend the night, possibly, and this time share a bed. Which is also something I've been wanting to see for ages, so I'd be delighted if that happened. 

 

I agree with Redrose that it would have been nice to see Sheldon be there for her, for a change, but I guess we were bound to see an episode like this coming, that shakes the status quo indeed, before moving on to a new era of Sheldon, hopefully.

 

I honestly doubt that the comic book store will be gone forever. I don't think the aim of the writers is to un-nerd the nerds for the S8 overhaul, they would never do that. I think it's a symbolic fire to represent everything that's changed and from the ashes a new comic book store (and a new show) will rise. I'm cautiously optimistic at this stage. All the info kazzie gave points at a very interesting finale, from the premise, let's just hope it's not as anticlimactic as last year's.

 

THIS. I have been thinking this exact same thing for about a week now. That's why I like your posts.....you say everything I forget to say. :)

OK, Heres what happened,

 

Originally, I wasn't planning on going on the tour.. But since Its a weekend, theres no filming and we are dying to know about this set, I thought I would give it a try.

 

Low and behold.. the tour guides ask everyone on the tour which sets you want to see, of course, I as right in there with BBT

 

We walked onto stage 25 and up into the audience area.. The normal standing sets were there. The Guys and penny's apartment were still as per normal with white sheets over the furniture to protect them during when the sets are not used. The one different thing I did notice was the GOT IS STILL MISSING. This really upsets me. :p

 

Now Im sure you all know. "swing sets" are sets that are not used for every episode. They are built purposely for the episode which is in filming. This could be a 1 time set or regularly appearing set. They can also be set up in other locations.

 

The 2 swing sets We could see was the Comic book store (with fire damage, ill get to that later) and Amy's apartment, There was 2 more swing sets, The University Cafeteria and Mrs Wolotitz lounge. I will explain the condition to each set soon, as for now.. The set up as follows:

 

The Red indicated standing sets (Sets that never change or move)

The Blue indicated swing sets

 

Comic book store    | Penny's apartment | Hallway | Shenlard's apartment | Amy's apartment

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

      Camera's                                          Camera's                                               Camera's

________________________________________________________________x__________________

Wolowitz's House    |                                                                                    | University Cafeteria 

(not in audience view)   |                           Audience Seating                             | (not in audience view)

 

(The will explain a few things below)

 

The last time I was there for the Mommy Observation.. The set up was this:

 

Sheldons Bedroom | Penny's apartment | Hallway | Shenlard's apartment Mrs Coopers house

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

      Camera's                                          Camera's                                               Camera's

Not used                  |                                                                                    | The Bar 

(not in audience view)   |                           Audience Seating                             | (not in audience view)

 

 

About the Sets..

 

Penny's apartment, The boys apartment:

Nothing base changed..  They had white sheets over the furniture as they do when not being used.. The GOT sword is missing.. There was a HUGE type of table thing with a white sheet over it which was sitting int he camera walk in front of the boys apartment.. At a guess It could have had been a casino table.. But I have absolutely NO idea what it was.. Things in the set get moved around and stored all over the place while other sets get built.. It was probably nothing.

 

Amy's Apartment:

It wasn't completed.. Half the kitchen was missing.. however the lounge area was its normal self with white sheets over the furniture.. Half the props for Amy's apartment were sitting in a cart in front of the boys apartment Where the x is. Props being kitchen utensils, the microscope etc So I'm guessing they are half way to completing it before the taping on Tuesday, which makes me thing Mayim will be there.

 

Wolowitz House: 

We was lucky enough to leave this way.. We left the audience area and onto the Camera walk way and walked between wolowitz house and the comic book store to the exit. which is how I got to see these sets in detail. The wolowitz set was the lounge.. It was fully fitted as you would see on camera. If its going to be used or not, I don't know.

 

The Comic Book Store:

The first thing I will say, Is its NOT rubble or completely destroyed. However there is fire damage. There are still things on the walls which have not been burnt but do have damage. Some parts are completely gone.. The set was very dirty with burn marks, Things not he floor etc.. It DOES look like it could be repaired.

 

University Cafteria:

I couldn't see this set or even get any peek. I only know it was there because the tour guide told us.

 

 

The script.

After we had a lecture on how filming is done, filming routines etc.. The tour guide allowed us to all about the audience area to get a better view of the sets.. I went to the far left to get a better view of Amy's apartment. I was standing in front of where I placed the x. I was looking at at all the props. And sitting right there on a desk table thing was the script. Sitting upside down for me. I leaned over as far as I would squinting and looking down t it (my eyesight isn't amazing) And I just made out the title. 

 

 

The tour guide didn't know any spoilers.. I probably knew more tbh!

 

And thats all to be said!  I spent most of the tour updating twitter, I think most of you enjoyed that :)

 

And Kazzie blooper of the day.... As we was in the audience area.. there was another tour group (with someone in a wheelchair) walking along the camera lane all the way down the set.. I asked if we could do the same but got rejected.I was told "they can only go down there because its a wheelchair tour" And what did I go and say? "OMG they are so lucky"

I got a few awkward looks, and I had to explain what I meant.. omg I was humiliated.. Luckily I was dead already from being there.

 

I hope that cleared a few things up for you guys and put things into better prospectives. Now we just have to wait a few days for the taping!

:dancer:  :girldance: Thank you, Kazzie!!  Enjoy the taping Tuesday!

Thanks lovebug. I'm still laughing at the wheelchair thing and I really shouldn't be, but I can picture you saying it.

I'm with you Koops. I'm optimistic that the writers are starting the changes for next year to solve some of the problems of extending the original premise to seven seasons. This finale truly could be the finale for the "Old TBBT".

 

-  Season 8 should not un-nerd the guys, just acknowledge the changes due to the passage of time and the effect of non-nerd women in their lives.

 

- The quest for life partners is over. There will be no break-ups (though we will have to see how Raj's love life progresses). It was time to end that "will they or won't they" with Leonard and Penny. It's been 7 years, they act like a married couple already, glad they are going to make them have the rings and the paper.

 

- The guys and the girls are in the career advancement stage that people in their thirties go through. That can be a source of humor almost equal to the relationships.

 

- Sheldon can not be the "evil baby" much longer. That has been the primary source of humor but for me, at least, it's getting irritating. Amy has changed him; regressing him to childhood every so often to reassure the Sheldon purist that he is the same just causes a whipsaw effect with his character. The last half of this season seems to be about maturing the character by making him more self-aware and I hope those changes stick to form a new base Sheldon that's different from the one created gradually in season 1. I know some folks are not going to like that.

 

I will be glad to see the "improved" TBBT. I have faith that they know what they are doing.

Leonard moves in with Penny. Stuart moves in with Sheldon. Sheldon's excuse will be Stuart needs somewhere to live temporarily.

I do not know if anyone has thought of this but remember when Amy talked about the RA and how it covered financial difficulties well I wonder if SHELDON may have money issues/get let go from Cal Tech and that's how the writers could have Amy move in with him.

It may not be the romantic way by any means but it would be some great comic opportunity.

This is a very likely stall. Is the actor available - because that makes him regular cast? Edit: Unless they refit the store quickly - because, like, it's not real life and he may not have to wait for the insurance assessor and the contractors

I think I would vomit if they had Amy move in with him in those circumstances.

Agreed. I would stab myself in the face if it happened for any reason less than Sheldon realizing he needs her in his daily life

I think that they won't have Stuart move in with Sheldon, even if it were temporary.  Kevin is a recurring character with 3-8 episodes a year.   I don't think that they would have him become Sheldon's roommate because then he would have to be explained too much if not in an episode.  Likewise, Sheldon isn't going to want Stuart around Amy and yet he will want Amy to be able to come to his apartment.   Third, Sheldon does not really "like" Stuart that much.  He tolerates him and appreciates his artistic skills, but he has never really thought of him that much as a friend, more an acquaintance and one that he knows dated Amy.  

 

I think the bookstore is more about Sheldon and a possible "meltdown" than about Stuart.  They probably will have some way of having him live with Dale or Captain Sweatpants or something while the store gets rebuilt.  I doubt it is permanently gone.  I think it is a plot ploy and will be rebuilt by S8.

Obviously there was/is a period that she admitted having "Gerard" to pleasure herself even with Sheldon as a boyfriend. Same thing goes with Amy's "lesbian"fascination with Penny. But you should know that's not PC to say on here.
