Chrismo Posted May 9, 2014 Posted May 9, 2014 Nothing is resolved about who is moving where. In the taping report, Leonard suggests both possibilities--himself moving in across the hall with Penny or Sheldon moving across the hall. I do think it's rude of Leonard to even suggest that Sheldon be the one to move out, and I think that's one of the elements that made Sheldon really angry. I don't know that anyone's going to be moving any time soon, because of how it would change the group dynamic and how they use the boys' apartment as the gang's gathering place. It could be that the discussion of the eventual change in living arrangements was brought up for two logistical reasons--the writers planting the seed of an eventual change, now that L/P are engaged, and the more immediate issue of pilling a bunch of life changes onto Sheldon to help push him to the point of running away from home. I don't know that L/P are going to move right away, but I think that if anyone is going to move it's eventually going to be Leonard moving in with Penny. Or even though everyone seems against it, I can see Penny moving in with Leonard while Sheldon stays put. I think it would be full of awkward humor and antagonism, but still keep the apartment as the main focus of get-togethers, but with possible changes in how the place looks--or not. But I really object to the idea of Leonard thinking it would be okay for he and Penny to take over what has always been Sheldon's home. The guy who is getting married should be the one to move out, plain and simple. Especially since Sheldon isn't the one who wants to change his living quarters. Whether or not he wants or needs a roommate, he's not seeking change and shouldn't be pressured to move out. Anyway, like I said, the idea of a change in arrangements is something they could play with for a while, if they want to. I agree with you on nobody is moving anytime soon. I'm not sure what the objection is of Sheldon moving. Leonard states in the beginning that Lenny wants to live together by themselves. It's seems insulting that Sheldon thinks he's more important to Leonard than Penny. Nobody's pressuring Sheldon here. Another possibility is Lenny completely moving out of the building. Would Sheldon want that? If he had Penny's apartment wouldn't the rent be less? Sheldon's apartment when Leonard moved in had lawn chairs and Leonard brought in all the friends and furniture that he has now. Wouldn't you think Sheldon would be willing to go along with whatever Leonard decides since Leonard has always been accommodating to Sheldon over the years? Leonard is Sheldon's best friend and wouldn't best friends do that for one another? Oh I am forgetting this is Sheldon Cooper!!!!!!!
