3ku11 Posted August 19, 2015 Posted August 19, 2015 I just find the whole idea that POOR Leonard has been subconsciously sabotaging his wedding such nonsense out of a teen fanfic. And don't get me started on Penny sharing part of that blame. Yes, Leonard has always been insecure and Penny has always had doubts about whether she was smart enough for him or whether they had anything in common. That was believable, interesting and poignant. But to say that cheating and then hiding it from her for two years is poor Leonard being insecure and sabotaging his wedding is a ridiculously cheap way to swipe a huge problem under the carpet. Leonard had gone to Penny herself in S5 about wanting to be a cheater and not being able to bring himself to do it. He went with it and then felt so guilty he confessed right away. And yet now I am meant to buy he would be able to keep it a secret from the love of his life for two years? Because he's insecure? Look, I can even buy a drunk Leonard being flattered by some girl's attention on a trip and ending up not knowing how to respond to her kissing him and going along with it for a bit. But what I can't buy is this pop-psychology explanation that the reason he did it and he kept it from Penny for years is that he's subconsciously trying to sabotage his own relationship out of his insecurities. to be fair hes been trying to subconciouley sabotaging his relationship with Penny since day one. Mentioning their parents in.bed, saying i love you in.bed, proposing in bed etc. Not saying he was insecure justifies sweeping cheating under the carpet. But writers have done this before.
