They had three episodes written and there was no way they were going to trash this scripts, even though they were not all taped. A bad choice that had a major impact on the Leonard/Penny storyline. If there was going to be a 13th and maybe even a 14th season, they could have tap danced a bit until having Penny experience an epiphany and discover organically that yes, she does want to create life with her husband. With a scant 21 episodes until “fade to black”, they end up pulling the Zack nonsense out of thin air. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I think they shouldn't have written it even if they had another season or two. It was not true to the characters and their story and it was, to me at least, painful to watch. Unnecessarily painful. More episodes wouldn't have changed that. Mind you, they didn't even make use of the episodes they had. The Zack plot was IMO just whacky and it did nothing to change the situation. The only "progress" happened off screen (and by that I don't mean the actual conception but the mental-emotional processes preceding and following it). As Holland said, the whole thing was in fact done because they planned to have Penny pregnant in the finale and wanted to add a surprise factor. I think if they took their time to think about it more thoroughly, including thinking about past and future episodes (again, not something they're used to because it's simply not their way of working), they may have realized all the problems it would make far outweigh that surprise factor.
