He has been saying all along what many of us are seeing now as far as Penny's treatment of Leonard goes. Sad but true he may well be right overall if not in the particulars

So the series finale is May 12. I didn't know.

I thought the series final was 16 May, 2013

That's when the program I grew to love ended I've got no idea what this crap is now

Not having seen it yet I can only imagine that Penny would prefer that the RA meeting be amicable.  Leonard refusing to attend would destroy the mood that Penny was trying to establish in order to get concessions from Sheldon.

Just my guess from what I have read.

I got more or less your same impression; for me, Penny was just trying to please Sheldon (as she does taking him to the Lego Store) in order to "manipulate" him when she needs concessions in the Roommate Agreement. I guess she has learnt, in nine years, that the only person who is in charge for it is Sheldon (in 12 years  Leonard hasn't  had so much impact on the RA, apparently), and she deals with him only. That proves for me that ATM she is pretty comfortable with the situation and this fight in which Leonard calls her out for her behavior may be the starting point for a discussion on the living arrangements. That's my take on it, of course before watching the actual episode...

We're wasting our time worrying about Shenny. TPTB want us to think a Shenny plot is ahead, but they're just throwing us off course from their real bombshell of a plan: Lamy. 

All the signs are there:

It's the only acceptable ship outside of the canon ships, LOL.

oh, I don't know. I actually prefer Sheldon's prickly frenemy relationship with Howard. And, as I have observed before, Howard had his saliva down Sheldon's throat long before amy... And look at Sheldon's giving a share of his patent winnings to Howardette Minor. A declaration if ever I saw one. Couched ungraciously, obviously, because of the love that dare not speak its name?

yes, I might countenance Shelowitz.

Ya'all are playing with fire lol

"I bet that started off as a joke, but by the third one, you realized there was something strangely enjoyable about it. I don't recommend it. You'll be doing it the rest of your life"

And for all of you who are old enough, a movie reference: instead of TBBT this looks like "Invasion of the body snatchers". Characters in the show sure do look like Leonard, Penny,  Sheldon, Amy, Raj, Emily but they sure as heck ain't acting like them.

I'm for diversity. So why not. Have a jealous love triangle that doesn't involve vaginas. That'd be novel for the time slot.

I couldn't agree more with all of this and especially the last part. Never like this season the writers have demonstrated that they (unconsciously or consciously) think science and nerdy interests are exclusively a man's domain. They write an episode centered around science, like the Positive Negative reaction, for the men, and then, almost as an afterthought, have the women sitting around drinking wine and talking babies just to give them something to do. They never ever put any effort whatsoever anymore in showing the women, especially Amy who was meant to be the geekiest of them all, have any interest in something that isn't their relationships or someone else's relationship. The only times women are allowed to talk about nerdy stuff is to shock and amuse their men, as if the joke is that there's no way in hell they can be into that stuff (like when the women are discussing Batman vs Superman), and quickly revert back to men and gossip shortly thereafter. On top of that you have offensive implications like Penny being good at her job just because it involves flirting, not because, gee, I don't know, she actually worked hard at it and suggesting pharma sales rep have no training whatsoever and only go around flaunting their cleavage and the only doctors out there for them to sell drugs too are apparently straight men. 

And it's not like they wouldn't have had the chance. When Bernie turned out to be pregnant, why couldn't Amy be the one with the jokes about doing experiments if she has twins, since it's right up her field of study in a way? When they were doing FWF, why was Amy trying to coddle that jerk that is Raj over his heartache instead of telling him off for interrupting (and since when has she become a relationship expert?). When Shamy were broken up, why did Amy get not a single plot where she decided to focus on her job or some crazy interest instead of pining around for a boyfriend all of a sudden? Last season, Sheldon helped Leonard with his idea, he became co-author on his paper and that's been an ongoing science storyline ever since. Amy did THE EXACT SAME THING with Kripke, around the same time last season, and all she got was a bottle of wine and the entire point was just to show how that made Sheldon jealous and it was forgotten. Because obviously when a woman contributes to a paper, she doesn't even get authorship credentials. A bottle of wine will do! And her career is nothing more than a ploy that affects her man's ego, just like Penny's is to Leonard. 

On top of it all, you have Raj acting like a total jerk and yet women drop at his feet and the ones that don't all huddle around him to help him with his jack-assery and act like the problem is the poor women HE is treating like garbage. I honestly don't know what's happening this year but the misogyny has reached levels never reached before on a show that I always defended against such accusations. Literally all women are on this show for this season is to drink wine and be romantic/sexual/coddling objects for their men, with no journey of their own, no development of their own, no discoveries of their own, no lives of their own. 

LOL. Harsh, but true. Totally agree. Watching TBBT is Misogyny 101 now.They just don't know how to write women. Penny only existed as an object, so that Leonard can have the hot girl- that was literally the basis of their relationship in season 1-2. Same with Penny's career. They didn't write Amy and Bernie any  better.  Raj is a total sexist jerk and people still make excuses for him--like we are supposed to side with him(not gonna happen, atleast with me) . 

I only watch because ,  if the writers do it right, Shamy and certain storylines can still be witty.  I want  another Physics Bowl episode though. If Amy can bring back her inner genius again, Amy and Sheldon can totally win against Leslie Winkle haha.

Can't write women, can't write a marriage either.
