It's not that they won't let her, they write her that way because it makes sense to the story. Like I said, everything in the show is because of the writers but the point of writing a story is to have the audience immersed in the characters and for the characters to have a life of their own inside the story's universe. Why is Sheldon an ass? It's part of who he is. As we've seen in the show, he can be obnoxious and egotistical. Why does Amy have the patience of a saint? It's part of her character. She can be very patient and understanding, as evidenced by her behaviour towards Sheldon. Why did Penny propose to Leonard in 7.23? Because her career was going to hell and she was looking for a life saver. Why does Penny make bad life choices? Because she feels lost and things didn't go according to her plan, so she's looking for the next best thing (Leonard) which is evidently sucking the life out of her. See? No mention of thewritersmadethemdoit! anywhere. I just watch the show and interpret what I see/hear. Eta: Lorre might have told the writers to break Lenny up but in universe it made sense which is all that matters. The writers make the characters do everything, the other part of the equation is to interpret what the characters do in universe. In the writers room the writers decided to have Penny make bad life choices for certain reasons. In tbbt universe it translates to "she's made bad life choices because she was lost and now she's unhappy with her life because of these choices". In tbbt universe there are no writers so Penny can't be miserable in her marriage because of them. So if the writers make Amy cheat on Sheldon while at Princeton we are not allowed to cmomplain because there are no writers in the TBBT universe?
