In my opinion there has been no growth for Leonard just sliding backwards

That is why I hope but not expecting it is for Leonard to be the focus of S9. I know it's not going to happen but one could dream.

I guess my problem is the producers keep talking about slow changes but in 1 season penny goes from a unemployed actress to a top selling sales rep with a investment guy. Sheldon goes from barely being able to hold hands to buying a engagement ring and Leonard goes from being the leader of the group to some big time wimp

 

I don't see any great change. Sheldon got a ring but it is not like anyone could tell the difference. Most notably  not Amy.

 

Leonard is no different either. We never saw him on a research vessel away from home before.

Sounds like a plan. Go for it and we can analyse the results tomorrow and compare it with the night before result. I'm on the good old beer & vodka tonight I see only one conclusion. Lenny rocks and then you sober up and the doubts returns. :)

I think what people mean is Sheldon did that prom with Amy, something he would have never done before for anyone, told her he loved her (big deal), wanted to buy a pet with her, then add the ring at the end. If you look at just those items they are huge for Sheldon and they all happened in one season.

As to Leonard, he was much more self assured and in control by the middle of season 6 then he is now. It seems that in late season 7, when Penny was upset about his support he faltered, then in season 8 he fully regressed.

It may not be such a change in Leonard at all. The situation changed. When Penny was in need he came to the rescue. He got her a car so she could go to auditions. Now she has a good job and makes twice what he does. Leonard is simply a fish out of water because Penny is no longer a waitress/actress that he is rescuing. She is not on the rebound from some bad relationship. Not only that Leonard still mostly does all the same old stuff he did before the engagement.

 

So back in The Recombination Hypothesis 5.13

 

 

Leonard: Hang on. Penny, do you have plans for dinner?

Penny: Why, you guys going somewhere?

Leonard: No, I mean just you and me.

Amy: Ooh!

Bernadette: Ooh!

Penny: Uh, have you thought this through?

Leonard: Yes, and I think we should go anyway.

 

They have had a stormy relationship.

DJ Surrey, your example only serves to demonstrate how different Leonard is to how ball less he acts now. In the dialogue you quote you see a determined Leonard who no matter how bad things might go he's willing to risk it all for Penny

Reacting badly to a couple situations doesn't make him "ball less".
