stardustmelody Posted March 8, 2015 Posted March 8, 2015 (edited) I love Emily and think she is fascinating and interesting and stirs things up a bit not only for Raj, but I think she could with the group as well. I like that she and Penny are not exactly comfy with each other and that they could be frenemies...get along, but you can always tell there is a competition going on between them kind of thing. Penny needs someone to stir her up a bit and Emily is perfect for that. Both pretty, but one is more on common ground with the guys as far as interests (Emily) and the other is one they have adopted to be like their sister (or in Leonard's case, lover). So yeah...I would like to see her stick around for a while. I love Laura Spencer and think Emily's quirks are dark and fun, but not so dark that they are overly disturbing A lot of it is her teasing and her way of feeling like she "fits in" I think more than anything But she is a delightful addition. I think the chemistry between Emily and Raj is great and I like how she accepts him the way he is without trying to change him, yet she teases and challenges him in new ways that keep him a little off balance. She is still a mystery to him and she likes that and in a way he does as well. I don't think that she will remain a "dark" character, but we will learn it is her "schtick" to to speak. She uses it as a way to unsettle people to hide maybe some fears she has or something along that line. But I do like that she is strong, independent and yet has a warmth about her as well. I like that she and Amy share a lot of common interests and I think she and Bernie likely would as well given Bernie's past comments that show she too can shelter a few dark fantasies of her own. So I think that is good. She also shares a lot of common interests with the guys so that works. The only person that has rubbed her the wrong way is Penny and I think Penny needs to have a little competition and be thrown off her game some by another woman that is beautiful as well. I think that she will always be Queen Bee with the gang, but it is good to see her have some unease now and again ...makes for great comedy and also keeps Penny on her toes. I also like how the actress is good friends with the cast IRL (especially Kaley and her sister since they have worked together in the past) and that the producers/writers like her a lot. I remember reading a while back an interview with Laura and she said that she is probably a longer-term recurring character because there are still many plans ahead for she and Raj but she didn't go into specifics. So I am definitely PRO Emily. Edited March 8, 2015 by stardustmelody Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
