They actually never established her as his girlfriend so she is not exactly an ex-girlfriend.

 

from http://bigbangtrans.wordpress.com/series-06-episode-24-the-bon-voyage-reaction/

 

Amy: Excuse me, but I’m a neurobiologist. I think I’m a little more qualified than you to understand what’s not working in your girlfriend’s brain!

Raj: Don’t call her my girlfriend. We haven’t discussed whether or not we’re girlfriend or boyfriend yet. Now that it’s out there, are you my girlfriend? By the way, if you say no, I’ll never be happy again. Not to put you on the spot.

Lucy: I think I have to go to the bathroom.

 

Then later

 

Raj: I want to apologize for Amy last night. She was completely out of line. Are you, are you not speaking to me or did the screen freeze again?

Lucy: Amy wasn’t the problem.

Raj: Okay. I know. It was me. I, I pushed too hard. I’m sorry.

Lucy: Thank you.

Raj: You know, I, I’ve been thinking that maybe meeting somebody one-on-one is too intense, so Friday night, my friends are having a party.

Lucy: A party?

Raj: A little one. It’s, it’s a farewell for Leonard, so all the attention will be on him. If you wear something brown and sit on the couch, they won’t even know you’re there.

Lucy: I’m not sure.

Raj: Oh, please?

Lucy: Raj.

Raj: Come on. Don’t make me beg. And I’m from India, so I know how to do it.

Lucy: Okay.

Raj: Yeah, thank you! This means a lot to me. My friends are like my family. Unless you don’t like them, in which case, they’re dead to me.

 

The part in bold is the clear reason Lucy did not feel like she could see Raj again. Too much pressure too early in their friendship.

Please don't bring back Lucy, she was nice but just not for Raj in my opinion, I found her very annoying. She is actually just under Priya of a level of annoying to me. No one can beat Priya....so far...but Lucy is pretty close.

Annoying? Perhaps she is not for Raj but Sheldon has to win when it comes to being annoying and yet many still like the character. Even Raj is more annoying than Lucy.

She's only back for just the one episode, so they're not getting back together or anything.  I love Kate Micucci but I agree the character wasn't right for him.

 

Speaking of Priya, wonder if they'll ever bring her back.

^Well Priya was a plot device for a catalyst for change in the show post S4, and regardless of Leonards intentions essentially a rebound relationship from Penny. They could bring her back, but imo Priya cared more about the image of their relationship, other then Leonard himself. Maybe she could return to visit Raj, and has a run in with Penny haha I dont know. Leonard and Penny are in such a strong place right now, I dont think the writers have any reason to bring her back at this stage.

Yeah, I can't see any reason to bring her back.  I liked her interactions with Raj, though.

Depends too on what the the actor is doing at the moment. It was a pretty good gig for her, but what she is up to I do not know. But pants suits are always waiting for a comeback. Another practical garment that has been maligned. :)

 

Also, will Leonard be wearing a woolen beanie in this one? That was my first thought on seeing this title.

So thats why Penny was wearing those horrible pants suits on her movie date with Leonard in Season 5, alas Penny well not acknowledge this was Priya influenced ;).

This is twice lately the Penny/Raj friendship has been featured in an episode.  I like it almost as much as Amy and Howard.

Would photo 8 be considered a spoiler since it shows where Penny runs into Lucy?

I think that since these are officially released promo photos, they're not considered spoilers.

Did we ever get any real spoilers for this episode? I think all we reall have is the official press info.

No we didn't get much, but hopefully if they show it tonight, Tomasina can include a report on it as well when she goes to the taping.   She is very good at detail.  I am excited to see her report.

The picture isn't revealing any more of a spoiler than was told to the press weeks ago.  It's only that a certain actress whose name rhymes with Hate Tie-Hoochie will appear.

I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but I believe the "Lenny" on the sweater simply stands for "Leonard".

I am sure it does, but it also might be a subtle way the writers used humor to also give a nod to a fan base. While it can work either way, I say let the Lenny fans celebrate the occasion.  I think it is great.
