I agree the Lenny wedding is overdue! Don't see how the show can be funny anymore if they actually break up.The car scene from 8.24 belonged in a soap opera not a sitcom. Took me a couple weeks to get it out of my mind. Wedding or wedding planning equals funny.

If writers will still degrading Leonard and Lenny I will not quit the show, just watching with heavy heart, without joy or an excitement. Still will be watching because still have hopes, and hopes die last.

The pain of seeing Leonard and Lenny rut till the end will be too hard to bear. I just couldn't watch them suffer another 2 seasons. S9 for me has to be about lenny and them realizing they belong together and can't live without each other. Period.

Unfortunately The Big Bang Theory resambles soap opera more and more. You right the show can be funny anymore if they will break up (again), wedding issue can be very funny - I don't get it why writers don't want go that way.

Double wedding will be totally disaster.

A double wedding would be a horror, and unfair to Both couples! I realize Sheldon has become the writers priority, so let Lenny get married and let them be sweet, funny, and happy in Sheldon's shadow. I know that's not what Leonard and Penny deserve, but I'd be happy with this at this point. Just to see them as a happy would be enough. This shouldn't be too much to ask.

As long as the writer have him in the background and not try and take over or the wedding is about him. It has to be about lenny. Its their special day. Then I'll be happy with that scenerio.

Oh I agree I want Sheldon in the background; maybe have him say something funny to Leonard as Penny walks down the aisle And then have him step back, shut up and have a Huge smile as his two friends tie the knot. This would show a great deal of maturity on his part.

I really like that idea but I think you should have Sheldon figure out the odds of that happening

My prediction is no wedding will take place in Vegas. If it does however, I then predict a divorce, to be followed by the gradual realization that Penny and Leonard cannot live without each other (and an end to the blase attitude that's been prevailing with them in later seasons) with a second marriage occurring towards the end of the run.

The Shamy breakup will lead to the relationship finally entering into its physical phase I reckon. I'm hoping for weird all the way with these two and I know I'm going against the generic Shamy-fan grain, but I would hate to see soppy romance take this unique love story and turn it into vapid nondescript mush. I await S9 with bated breath.

I don't even understand why people think there has to be a double wedding. I don't know how long the show will go on for, but instead of stalling and stalling the writers should be concerned with writing good stories for each ship. They should progress Lenny at a pace adequate for them (without artificial stalling or completely OOC events), they should do the same with Shamy, which doesn't mean ending them up marrying, and make an effort to write something interesting for Howardette. AS I've said before I see Shamy even further away from marriage than before. yes, I know the kiss and the I love you, but he's thinking about something else while kissing her in their 5th anniversary? And then he has a ring? Really? Talk about OOC! Leonard's kiss and Sheldon's ring? The writing quality has plummeted. Btw I do feel both those moments were unearned, but maybe that's just me.

Basically the s8 final nonsense was to delay any lenny marriage and shamy progress for as long as possible

I half agree, however, I suspect the Shamy breakup is simply a catalyst for coitus myself (oooh, sounds like a fan fic title that, 'Catalyst For Coitus'). The writers seem to use the toe up the arse method for any progression with Sheldon.

Also I don't think Amy is desperate for coitus with Sheldon, like a few seem to think

Its more about Amy wanting Sheldon to focus and think about her, she knows he isn't going to rush anything

Well, the people who write her certainly are suggesting she is, tardis on the bedroom door, sly sex digs from both Amy and the gang, what brings you to the opposite conclusion to that which is being shown in canon?

If Amy was as desperate for coitus as the writers apparently imply, they could just break shamy up for good and let her sleep with anybody

Sure of course she wants to ultimately make love with Sheldon and that's what the writers are implying by dropping little things in about it, I can see it happening but not yet

I don't think they are implying she wants to sleep with "anybody" Rachel. As you concur, she wants to have sex with her boyfriend of 5 years whom she's in love with and they've made that quite clear.

We discussing about Lenny’s marriage, wedding, when this wedding should be, what this wedding should be and so on. In season 8 finale Penny and Leonard had a talk about it – small ceremony in a church, with family and friends, no butterflies.

However I think they will get married in different way, some kind unique. Their engagement was unique - Penny lost her job, was upset, fought with Leonard about getting married or not, finally they accepted get marriage, after a while Leonard knelt and proposed with a ring. I think Lenny’s fans excepted something bigger, a romantic dinner in restaurant or in apartment.

Maybe their wedding will be one of a kind as well. There will be no church wedding, no family and friends or only family or only friends. Penny and Leonard are the best when are jus two of them (I think writers know that). The day when they say “I do” will be a surprise, fans will not anticipate when that coming.

Regarding Shamy:

 

This whole situation isn't just about sex. If it was, then yes, the writers would have her sleep with somebody else. Easy! Done! 

 

But it's more than that. Amy wants to have sex with her boyfriend of five years whom she is in love with, which is very understandable. However, she also wants to know that Sheldon wants the same things out of the relationship that she does. Essentially, she wants to know that he genuinely wants her, and isn't just going through the motions to make her happy. We know that Sheldon is committed to the relationship in the way Amy would like (hence the ring) however he hasn't properly expressed it. He might know what he wants, but Amy certainly doesn't know that.

 

In a sense, this entire situation is one big misunderstanding and in order to be properly resolved, it requires effective, open communication between Amy and Sheldon. While this could easily be accomplished in the premiere, I have a feeling the writers will want to drag it out a bit longer than that, and rightly so. It's unlikely that Sheldon (or Amy, for that matter) will realise straight away what needs to be done, leaving a nice opportunity for a bit of angst and pining for each other.
