[Spoilers]Leonard And Penny Season 8 Thread

Recommended Posts

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)

Yeah difference with Leonard's support or even Sheldon or anyones support of Penny really. Is unlike Leonard they actualize what they perceive what Penny want's to hear, Leonard tell's it like it is because he knows Penny more then anyone, he is the only one who loves her enough to challenge her to be better. So by saying it is a one in a million shot ain't being mean, it's being real. And right now Penny need's real she doesn't need some self professed jargon about how brave she is, she needs someone that loves her enough to challenge her and that's what Leonard offers in their relationship.

Nicole at the other forum is making a poll for the best Leonard and Penny kiss. Please vote one for her! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2SR5ZJT

Thanks bigbang for copying the url over to the L/P thread.

Just voted. So many kisses to choose from. It was hard but in the end, went for the lime kiss. :)

@bbs, done. But I'm not buying a copy of Cosmo. :). I may have a chardonnay tonight.

I picked the lab moment, because she was so conscious there of what Leonard was actually all about. She wasn't drunk, emotional or grateful for being rescued and Leonard was just obliviously doing his thing, and that got to her, and caught her off guard a bit. For his part, he wasn't chasing her, being needy or expecting anything at all. The spontaneity and sincerity of the moment was tremendous.

Lets have more of that.

edit: but "the lime kiss" is like the all time winner for hotness. No doubt.

Did and thought exactly the same. "how smart you are" most important kiss; lime kiss - wow factor.

Oh come on.. The lime kiss had passion, was sincere, affectionate and amorousness. we'll never experience a kiss like that from L/P ever again. I quote.. never have since not on screen anyway. it was a proper snogg. So ha.

I agree on the hotness, I just drink enough to know that alcohol drops inhibitions. (And I have been sad since S3 on a meta-level that the ingredients for the lime kiss have been left in the past). It was awesome and it was another thing that sold me on the chemistry of the two, but the survey didn't specify a definition of best so for me I'll use my own.

Further to that and because, hey, I overthink, Penny didn't make that up on the spot I suspect. It may have been in her repertoire, because she was 'usually the girl on the other side of the tie/door'. So while unique for Leonard it wasn't unique for her.

Her falling into his arms in the lab was new for both, so I score it higher. But i wont stand for denigration of the lime kiss either, because it was such a "wow" moment. :)

I think another thing that made the 'lime kiss' special was it wasn't completely acting, they were going with each other then, so there was some real there.

Lime kiss confirmed there was something real- passion for the little hobbit across the hall; lab kiss confirmed it was lasting love for her man. Depends what criteria you base "best kiss" on.

Lime kiss led to coitus interruptus ( actually didn't get that far!); lab kiss led to coitus manytimus. Best hot kiss - lime

Best long term future kiss-lab.

The Lime kiss will never be topped for hotness.. You can tell there seems to be something going on between Johnny and Kaley even though they were keeping their relationship a secret at that time.

They have not kissed like that again, that I can remember. The entire scene includes several intimate details that two actors in a sitcom would not rroutinely do.

Penny was already in love with the little hobbit next door like you call him before the lab scene. it just reminded her of one of the things she loved about him. Sorry it's not just his smartness. :) he a great guy remember lol.

Agree, Tonstar, all cute. And so synonymous with so much of what their relationship has been, So many of the kisses, especially early on, were either the result of a fight, led to a fight or were a make up from a fight. Thats why there was chemistry because there was so much emotion linked to their kisses. And yeah, I know she loved him before lab but it seemed to be the clincher to erase all doubts.

 

@Banger, yeah the neck kiss was not standard sitcom fare!


What was the one where she put her hands in his coat pockets and they went for it real hard? That was a hot one.

(off to buy Cosmo soon)

Was that the last one in the S3 premiere before sending him off to find Sheldon? Cos that was hot too.

I think your right. Itwasdestined, that's the only scene I could think of when you mentioned it. That was hot too.

@nogra, don't do it.. wait still you go to the dentist and you could read it for free while you wait. :)

Edit: yeah, the lab scene did kick off the start of her commitment to him.

So many great kisses (especially early on) to choose from. While The Lime Kiss is absolutely the hottest, my favorite is The Cat's Alive Kiss. It took their breath away. They were absolutely floating.

I liked the Halloween kiss when Leonard was dressed as the hobit...although the lime kiss probably wins for the passion factor ️very juicy!

Those are all good ones, but it is sad because only number 4 is recent and it is still from season 6.  In season 7 we seemed to have more good hugs than kisses.

Yeah I think that comes down to a range of thing's, the atmosphere that was circulating those kiss scenes from 1-3 was really different. The writers have really worked on their relationship post Season 5, and as time goes on they have evolved as a couple. So although they no longer have that passion they previously had, what has been replaced is a lot more intimacy, and I also think Penny is a lot more affectionate in S7 with Leonard then she had been in the past. Even in S3 a lot of people criticized Leonard and Penny's relationship for being all about lust, and not honest at all. Now it is becoming a lot more honest relationship, people miss the passion haha maybe it is a balancing act from the writers and the actor's not sure.
