BangerMain Posted July 2, 2014 Posted July 2, 2014 (edited) Concerning the engagement, I feel it was done over several episodes, not one. I really think that Penny committed to him when he gave her the car, not because he gave it to her, but because she accepted it without reservation or argument. That was when she accepted him as her partner, after that the rest of the engagement was just everything else falling in place. So for season 8, I expect some delay, due to Sheldon coming back and the living arrangements, and maybe the wedding stress, but they will be closer by the end. Penny and Leonard started to drift toward the final commitment with the table shopping in "The Table Polarization". They acted like a married couple trying to furnish their nest. But Penny crying to Leonard in the hallway about her now dead auto and stressing about how she would have to go back to work at the Cheesecake Factory in humiliation after insulting her co-workers on her way out, told volumes about how she saw Leonard. She was acknowledging that Leonard was right about her delusional attitude about her "star" plans and laying a problem she caused at Leonard's feet for solving, once again. She must have expected that he would do something to get her out of trouble, as he always does, since she sent him on the quest to get her TV from Kurt in the pilot. Or tell her how special she was when some dirt bag boyfriend dumped her. Or pay her rent when she wasted money. Or get her out of a marriage to Zack. Penny accepted that car in a heartbeat and you knew she was not worried about obligations any longer. That car was from her future husband. Season 8, I feel, will be starting with L/P as a unit that should not be threaten with phony "break-up" drama. They will have enough external issues to deal with to make their story interesting (Sheldon, their family members, living arrangements) Edited July 2, 2014 by BangerMain Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
