wowbagger Posted March 25, 2016 Posted March 25, 2016 (edited) Oh, yes, lord, I don't think a romantic Shenny would ever happen. I suspect the writers don't realise how.....off.... the dynamics between Sheldon and Penny seem right now. I truly don't think writers this reactionary would actually jeopardise a marriage between two of the leads. It's a CBS sitcom- no divorces are happening on this show. That having been said, Penny is so weirdly and gauzily chummy with Sheldon right now that I wouldn't rule out a fight precipitated by Leonard's dad somehow, Amy taking Leonard's side, Sheldon commiserating with Penny and getting drunk (because Sheldon drinks now!) and a drunken kiss- because alcohol has to mediate Penny's first remotely sexual contact with any member of the male cast, remember? A drunken kiss with Sheldon pushing Penny away......but with just a leeetle too much delay, or perhaps with a somewhat....ambiguous.....expression? And..... cliffhanger! So there'd be feverish speculation during the hiatus, with much poring over the tea-leaves in the episodes to come. And the whole thing would be swept under the carpet. Penny would come to her senses, say 'My God, what have I done?' and she and Leonard would maybe- just maybe- agree to move out (without doing anything about it, natch). Then the season would meander towards a Shamy wedding, with the writers taking plenty of care to insinuate that Amy wants the wedding because she has contractually stipulated that Sheldon has to have sex with her on the wedding night (#LOL #gaggingforit #thethingsAmy'lldotogettosecondbase), Amy would be a Bridezilla (#LOL #Chicksamirite?), and Penny would be Maid of Honour with Leonard being Sheldon's Best Man. And- and!- just seconds before Amy is to walk down the aisle with 'The Way You Look Tonight' playing and all eyes on her- someone would spill the beans about the kiss. And then Amy, lips quivering, would make a run for it. CLIFFHANGER! And- I don't know- Penny would go after Leonard, and Penny would then sweetly, maternally, tell Sheldon to go after Amy, and then he would talk Amy off a ledge (in a suuuuuuuper romantic show of ESP, involving seeking her out in the comic book store for literally no reason other than that Stuart has to be involved and we need to be reminded that he wasn't invited to the wedding), and in all this the show would have forgotten that there are two friendships at stake here and maybe the appropriate thing to do would be to have Penny talk to Amy as well, and for Sheldon to talk to Leonard. Oo, oo! And! And! Raj would still be trying to juggle multiple women! He would have probably invited three women as his date to the wedding, and there would be hiiii-larious hi-jinks that the show would insist on disrupting massive dramatic moments to show us! Priceless! I mean, I'm pretty sure this won't happen. This all requires planning- not to mention memory!- of which our ADD-ridden writing staff seems frankly incapable at the moment. But just to say that I don't any more put it past the writers to throw up cataclysmic dramatic moments that they later hastily bury in the backyard.
