Nogravitasatall Posted May 15, 2015 Posted May 15, 2015 I won't go into how I think it's possible with Leonard's character, because it seems like people ONLY WANT TO assume the worst, when an idol on a specific persons pedestal betrays their own personal beliefs of who that person is for them. I don't see how this tarnishes Leonard's character anymore than it does https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVTsphZJoIg. In some ways that kiss wasn't as allegedly terrible as Leonard's was with the girl (again we don't have a specific measure on the kiss on the boat); but in other ways this kiss allegedly WAS WORSE. Carla was not only A MARRIED WOMAN; but was also his BEST FRIENDS WIFE. He was also drunk, and SHOULD'VE known better, but he kissed her back after she kissed first. But he also while in his drunken state, knew he screwed up there. But didn't want to tell his best friend Turk (Carla's husband) about what happened, though Carla did; when Turk said "we now have no secrets between us". But despite all that fans of Scrubs were able to forgive J.D. & Carla for having a moment of weakness. So why EXACTLY am I supposed to believe Leonard will be tainted for the rest of the show for having a moment of weakness himself? Again I'm more mad that he didn't come clean earlier, but I'd be even MORE FURIOUS if he DIDN'T fess up when Penny brought up having no secrets or regrets. It does depend on the relationship with the show. I liked Scrubs, but I was never infatuated with it, or stupidly sat on the edge of my seat for seven years each week for eight months. I didn't leave my family on New York to get back to Oz on their own, so I could go to LA to see the show because of Scrubs (dont worry, I had the leave, they didn't... but still). It's not an objective thing, and its not completely rational. There is a lot of myself as I'd like to have been in Leonard and he was meant to be better and had been, for all his faults. I joked before about Truth and Beauty, but Leonard stuck up for truth and defended beauty and was a pretty good exemplar - and he was pretty principled. He did no one harm, despite what the moralists think of him. I can build a scenario where he *almost* blamelessly commits this minor peccadillo, but it's an insult on top of injury, especially after he spent all season bring ignored by his lover and constrained by his nut job housemate, who btw are almost always now shown to be getting on better together than he and his fiancée. Stressors are cumulative and this has stressed people. To whining point. And he hurt Penny. What the... He could be a pod person. Lol. All that said, I keep saying I hope for glorious redemption - but that's a pretty sucky cliffhanger resolution to wait for, and is unlikely to eventuate. This might blow over, but it hurt and will leave a scar. And the future looks like it might serve up just more Sheldon and Penny running away from their lovers (or loves) and being run away from. Where is the joy in that? More of a treadmill really. But you needn't worry about what other people are expressing. It's a forum. And people will say what they want and if they didn't care they wouldn't be here. And onwards. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
