[Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

Last thing we heard about Zack's work was that he and his sister were VPs in their family's design and printing business. They made menus for The Cheesecake Factory. Perhaps they've won a contract to produce advertising or informational material for a pharmaceutical company and are asking Penny's advice, or Penny is being asked by her firm to help Zack.  Or, perhaps Zack's firm's  branching out into videos and needs an actress.

Both your ideas sounds plausible, and I just hope that something actually happens this time with Penny's job situation.

There is also sapiosexual, when a high intelligence is the main factor in the sexual attraction

True. When Sheldon was looking for a new girlfriend during the break up, he put emphasis on intellect like solving a puzzle . Intellectual connection is important to him.

That's more like a qualifier - like some guys are into big tits. Doesn't make it a separate sexuality.

I heard that there is some sort of thing when a person develops sexual desires only to a certain other person after they develop their relationship. I think that might be Sheldon's case. I don't remembering experiencing sexual attraction to any person other than Amy. He told Penny that he now does experience these things towards women on the street in "The Hot Tub Contamination" but I'm not sure if that was true since he didn't really want to pick up a girl. He could have been lying.

You must be talking about demisexuality. That's when you can only be sexually attracted to someone if there's an emotional bond first (if I'm wrong someone correct me). I think that's possible for Sheldon. Though I remember him talking about using Kolinahr to suppress his urges so I wouldn't rule it out for him to have been sexually attracted to women (fictional or not) in the past. Only very few though, because as we know he has very high, specific standards. And he must have figured out along the way how to suppress these things.

Yeah, in Hot Tub he was lying because he was in character as his dad.

I spat out my Coke Zero when I read that post lol

Going back to the TR is it just me or would it have been more interesting if the job on offer was more substantial and she had took it? Clearly she is still not enjoying her job. But I guess this is the first time since Big Bear she has really complained about her job, so the writers haven't forgotten and career change still might happen at some point.

If I was a Lenny I might be happy they were on the same page in the end but her career might be the real factor Penny has been the way she has been for a significant part of the season and is no closer to resolving it.

Yeah, that would be the alternate interpretation I mentioned: That he's just a heterosexual dude with a very specific type and a bunch of personal issues.

Thank you so much @luminous! And your contact too!

I only read the Lenny plot because I want to leave myself some things unknown... 

It sounds really good!!! Supporting Leonard! That's his most charming mode! And both of them seem loving and condsiderate of each others feelings. That how you write Lenny TPTB! See? You know how to do that!

I hope they will make good editing choices, not cutting good parts and keeping the ones where they kiss, hug and smile.

I'm somewhat disappointed that the job change ended up not occuring... Poor Penny really hates her job. It also means that it may not be "THE resolution" for the frustration/unhappiness of Penny/Lenny of the second half of the season. Nontheless, it may lead to it. She might start to actively look for another job, with Leonard supporting her of course. However, the cliffhanger could be her getting a very attractive offer far away... Then we will be left wondering what they will do. 

The little BTS comments on J&K sound so cute! They really do seem to be good friends.

Yeah this is what I meant, I knew the term but wasn't sure I remembered correctly so I opted out of mentioning it.

I'm a bit bummed Penny is still stuck in a job she hates...I would have loved to see Zack and Penny working together. But i dont know how much fun Penny would have had selling menus either. 

 anyway, Leonard sounds really great and supportive and I also LOVE Zack . He's one of my favorites,  and the way they used him as a guest star in this episodes sounds very funny and much better than the Bert episode last week. Though, it could just be coz I prefer  Zack over Bert as far as guest stars go, lol.

I think she should return to acting. I mean Webseries could be her thing. I am just saying she needs to find something she's passionate about. Passion is the right word to describe Penny Since season 7, well lack of passion.
