phantagrae Posted April 24, 2015 Posted April 24, 2015 Personally, the character of Emily doesn't resonate well and I would prefer to see Raj break up with her. There's nothing wrong with being different or weird, but I just don't think she and Raj are well suited. She genuinely scares him, and if they've been together for what - a year? - and she's still scaring him like that, they probably shouldn't be together. I don't think she fits in with the rest of the group either - like in the prom episode, even Bernadette, who is "nice to everyone", struggled to get along with her. I thought Raj and Lucy were far better together. In just a short time, Lucy had such an impact on Raj that he was finally able to talk to women. I think it was a big confidence boost for Raj to be with someone who had bigger social problems than he did, and if they had have been together longer I truly believe he could have helped Lucy overcome her own issues. They were a joy to watch together. And Steve Molaro hasn't ruled out Lucy coming back either, so fingers crossed on my end. I think Emily would/will fit in with the gang much more than Lucy ever would have. Lucy was too soft and unable to stand up for herself and she wouldn't have lasted a day with the gang. Never mind the fact that she was too nervous to even meet them. Emily is educated and in the sciences like the rest of the gang, except Penny. And Penny fits in because she has street smarts and a strong personality and lots of confidence. Even if she sometimes doesn't get the "sciencey stuff", she's not stupid and she's not vulnerable. She can give as good as she may get. I hope that Laura Spencer is more available next season so the writers can truly explore her character and integrate her more into the gang. I think she fit in well when she went with Raj and Amy and Leonard to go do the puzzle-solving game (with the zombie). We didn't see much of their individual personalities in those few scenes, but she obviously fit in well--I think it was even her idea to go do it. We haven't really seen her at dinner with the gang except in the one episode and she's never been part of girls night. I think those are the places where the writers would really have a chance to have her joining in the conversation, being part of the gang, etc.. I just don't know if there's any room for her to sit... Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
