I have to agree. This episode, which sounds like it will be a good one, does nothing to lead to season 12. Oh well, hopefully they (writers) will tie up some loose ends from previous years and episodes.

I think the closure of this year's finale kind of gives them a blank slate to go anywhere next year. Maybe we'll see Raj really get to work on himself (after even STUART can find someone) or we'll see Sheldon, Amy &/or Leonard move forward on the scientific breakthrough from pre-wedding. Or.... anything really. Next year is wide open and I'm excited to see what we get :)

Do you think there would be a time jump? Like we could see the gang in the future.

I'm a bit confused about American weddings. Why is Amy's father in the congregation ? Shouldn't he be ready to escort Amy and give her away ? Are Shamy going to enter together ? Is that usual ? I've only ever seen it done when they're already married.

Actually it very common in America Weddings for The Father to give the Bride away but as someone else said there no Rule of Thumb for American Weddings. Sometimes a grandfather, uncles, brother,etc will give the bride away for different reasons.  in America, there is no "rule of thumb" for most things like in the U.K.

I hope not. I want the journey. Maybe a time jump for the series finale? Who knows :)

My fondest wish for the series close is some kind of major recognition for Sheldon and Leonard. Maybe whispers of a Nobel nomination...

Do you mean in the first episode of the new season? Hm. Well that would certainly be a daring move! No, I really doubt they'd start right off with a time jump that big. Maybe if it really is the last season, somewhere towards the end they might show us how these folk turn out.

They never said it ain't happening. Often said about changing the DNA of the show. Kaley is againgst it. i was just simply suggesting it would be funny. But I said it is unlikely. 

I too do not think there will be a Penny pregnancy scare but Kaley did  say she is against having babies on set and in an interview stated that and then qualified it by saying the writers did well in not showing babies on screen so she would be ok with that. Also, what happens if she gets pregnant in real life?  Will they hide her pregnancy?  I think not because that would be a total disservice to the Lenny fans.

If the writers were good everyone could be happy. Writers are bad so that's what you get on here.

Well, even good writing cannot offset the feeling some have of being short-changed. The Lennys are not wrong to be angry, but that just makes it difficult to enjoy the few bright spots the writers do give us.

Wow it took me about an hour and a half to catch up! LOL (And there are 14 new replies accomulating as I'm writing, oh dear!)

@brilliantfool thank you so so much! You've been amazing! I'm happy you enjoyed the taping and hope you enjoy the rest of your stay.

The episode sounds good. 

Things I liked:

1. The Leonard-Sheldon scene I was hoping for! Sounds like a cute one.

2. Denise finding Stuart sexy due to his SW knowledge.

3. Sheldon, Amy and Leonard working together on a scientific breakthrough sounds nice.

WhatI didn't like is Howard asking Hamill to officiate. That to me is another "Everybody loves Sheldon"/"Sheldon the golden boy" moments I don't like. I can definitely see Leonard doing that but not Howard. His relationship with Sheldon has gotten better but it is not credible IMO that he'd do that. He doesn't care for Sheldon THAT much. I'd expect him to ask for something for himself, not Sheldon. That is a real Leonard thing to do, not Howard. Howard wouldn't put Sheldon before himself.

 

The episode feels like a series finale though. If they don't have the "last" factor for season 12 by the time it starts (either because there's 13 or they're unsure) I can't see how they would manage to draw audience for it.

A little disappointing that we didn't get any kind of cliffhanger in the season finale. What shall we now discuss until they return again in August ?

Perhaps somebody will bring up the season 4 finale again and the problem is solved. :sarcastichand:

A big thank you to @brilliantfool for the excellent TR.

I'm okay with no cliff hanger, but not having one really does pull the plug on a lot of entertaining speculation. Long, dry summer...

People who want a 13th season are the world's most baffling scientific mystery.

There is nowhere to go past a Season 12, them actually letting Stuart flourish is another sign that the last thing on the agenda is Raj.

Unless 12.01 immediately introduces Raj's beau we are not going to get time to know her (one of his exes will wind up more memorable for his dating life if they keep stalling). That is not me advocating for 3 more seasons focusing on Raj, they've treated him way too minor to justify another Sheldon growth arc at this rate.

Enjoy this break between taping seasons, it will be the last before next April's series finale taping.

See I think Howard seized on an excuse to spend a whole day with Mark Hamill and come off looking like a major hero at the same time. Probably had very little to do with actually making Sheldon happy. At least that's how I have it in my mind until/unless the show proves me wrong ;)

I don’t know it could be like ‘I love Lucy’ now that they are married, Sheldon being Lucy.  Lenny could be Their married friends.

Hmm maybe. But then, he could have just asked him to go on a trip with him or watch SW movies with him.
