So are we going to have more Lenny bickering and arguments   Damn, I am so tired of this BS.  Just watched the redo wedding on my local station. Even my wife mentioned why were there so many interruptions and remarks at Lenny wedding and none of that was at Shamy wedding   I said now you know why all the Lenny fans are annoyed and frustrated.

Yeah.

...because we know now...
L: I wore her down.
P: He did.

...and we will be remembered again and again. How funny!

Drunk or not. No excuse. It's a running gag. Penny remembers nothing, not even his birthday. She must have been drunk everytime it was his birthday as well.

Honestly, I wouldn’t worry too much. It’s 100% normal Penny doesn’t remember, she was drunk and upset and it was 11 years ago, can’t blame her. When I read the description at first, I thought it could be a nice was to reminisce their first Halloween together, and who knows maybe because she doesn’t remember they have another kiss in the couch as a parallel to s1, but I never read it as something negative

I agree. :)

Seems like a gag. Penny’s like ohhh that’s right. And that’s it. And I don’t see how Leonard can be upset by this. Therefore friction. Unless he’s going to get angry over the idea of Penny forgetting about something from 11 years ago when she was drunk. Would make Leonard seem kinda petty. So I’m gathering Leonard reminds her. And that’s that. 

It says Leonars is shocked. I'm guessing he'd be frustrated because for him it meant a lot. I hope they don't make it worse like by having her laugh and not believe him that she was the one to kiss him and he rejected her; and that there is some payoff (even though as I said the payoffs don't really satisfy me anymore, it's not enough compared to the angst) like her wearing the cat costume trying to recreate the kiss (Leonard could do a similar joke to S6 Valentine's and stop her, because it is a recreation, then come back), or accidentallly letting something out like that she "stole a kiss" from him in his birthday (because at the time she kind of took advantage of him not knowing this wasn't anything conventional) or asking why it took him so long to ask her out if he knew she liked him (i.e., making him understand she already liked him back then) or letting slip that she "listed" other small things like first time he looked at her in the eyes for over a minute first hand holding or whatever IDK...

Have Raj and Anu matching costumes too? I can't say, but it looks like something from Alice in the Wonderland...

That’s the third episode for Anu, I’m wondering if they decided to make her endgame for Raj?

If they were really going to give Raj someone at the end, I wish they would have brought back one of the previous girls, like Emily.

Looks like Shamy is dressed as Dr. Emmett Brown and his wife Clara Clayton Brown from "Back to the Future 3".

Raj is US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Anu is the US Constitution.

Thanks! I was far far off, ahahah! Their choice of costumes is brilliant! Not sure they are the "best" couple, but for me they win the prize for best couple costume indeed, LOL!

At the end of season 11 Jim made comments that indicate he was pretty open to the idea of a season 13.  In the intervening months he starred in a play with a whole gay cast that was groundbreaking in its time.  He then sold at least a pilot starring an openly gay couple.  A romantic lead would be a huge change for Jim (Sorry Shamys).  I would bet a lot that his decision was based on the opportunities he is creating for himself and not some sudden  boredom with Sheldon.  I don’t Think it was a hard decision for him to make professionally- I just don’t think it was based on Sheldon-ennui 

I totally agree. This is just a job for them, after all. As they start to get jobs that are just as rewarding, this will become a fond memory and they won't agonize over it at all, if they even do now,

It was tough in the sense that the decision effected the remaining cast and crew. He probably weighed the pros against the cons. In the end, he made the right decision.

TV show crews are used to this. They will also soon move onto other things.

Wow, amazing costumes!

Mary Poppins is timeless.  Wonder if they picked the costumes because of the Emily Blunt led Mary Poppins sequel coming out later in the year as well?

Wonder if Howard puts on a cockney accent? 'Chim, chimney, Chim, chimney, Chim, chim, cher-oo' lol

Why cant they write lenny in a positive way for once instead of all this BS.

Contrary to popular belief Lenny is not the point of the show At least from the point of view of the showrunners, not that I don't agree with them.,

Been drunk to me is tipsy and gives you confidence, making you feel excited, but aware to an extend. Intoxicated is losing control of your behaviour,
and been emotional which in turn could make you lose control. Hence what lead to the raj incident.

Okay then...but I sure don't see it that way. When I think of a drunk, it's not someone who is confident.

I hope not. I liked the actress well enough, but I loathed Emily. Both of them actually.

Sadly, I'm expecting more "they have nothing in common", "what are they doing with each other?" digs at Lenny, the only couple without matching costumes. Sure, they didn't match in previous Halloween episodes but it's made much more obvious with 3 other couples matching. Are these omens? Is this just all fun and funny to them? I don't know. I'm done trying to understand what TPTB are doing there.

They love their synergy, dual conflict plots in epiosdes.  Presumably, they have Sheldon trying to get back at Howard for dressing as him and then you have the conflict around the first kiss between Leonard and Penny.  Maybe some more conflict thrown in for gags when Sheldon meets Anu for the first time just like every other time someone else seems to be inroduced into the group.

My hope is that it doesn't derail or dominate the epiosde, and that there are some sweet moments in it.  I don't see why we can't have a fun, friendship endearing Halloween epiosde in the final ever season.

I prefer to think that not matching costumes is their thing 😅 Leonard is all about science and pop-culture in his costumes, while Penny chooses something really simple and cliche, and they both pretty happy about it ☺️

Yeah it's just that everything adds up... This season is giving me such a bad feeling with Lenny that it makes me see almost everything the negative way.

Yes, I do think about that too, just hope for the best) I guess the writers decided to play with ‘will they/won’t they’ again, not knowing it was the last season. So maybe after the 7-8 episodes they’ll choose another approach for Lenny :)

Can only hope... Whatever they did between seasons 10 and 11, they should do that again.
