I wonder if the promo of which @NotWonderland speaks will also be used for the final shot of the intro...

That's what I thought, forgot to mention it in my comment. It would be nice to have a new shot for the last season! Finally!

Denise is back!!! But different Leslie???

Can't think why they would use that name again. It's like giving Raj two girlfriends named Emily. I didn't like that.

So ive just typed up what feels like a essay but i figure this is my last taping i go to so might as well do the spoilers right lol here you go and if its too much sorry in advance 😂😂😂

Cold open is the whole gang in 4A sheldon and Amy saying how by the end of the honeymoon they were like a real married couple the good kind like on tv not lile Amys parents, howard makes a joke about how they're not a real married couple until shes ok with him peeing with the door open, bernadettes not happy with it either. Sheldon and amy got them "gifts" they all got 1 love NY teeshirts, they forgot to buy gifts so sheldon bought them on the plane, theres a line here about how NY could stand for anything not just new york. sheldon was bored googling stuff on the plane. He bought penny a xxl, shes annoyed, amy smacks him on the arm and says i told you, he says something like yes dear.

Next scene is sheldon and amy opening wedding gifts and writing thankyou cards, sheldons written 16 and his wrist is hurting, they open leonard and pennys, saying its the perfect gift for a perfect couple, its a strange crystal object, amy shakes it, sheldon tells her to lick it cause it might be candy, amy asks if it could be a "marital aid" he asks what they could use a crystal shaft for 😂

I get a bit blurry here about the order of the scenes but ill try to remember lol
It goes to the comic book store raj and Howard are watching stuart and denise flirt, raj asks whats wrong with stuarts face, howard points out hes smiling raj then tells howard he caught them making out at sheldons wedding. Stuart and Denise have a awkward goodbye and they ask if hes gunna ask her out, he doesnt know, raj says a big spiel about love which ends with him saying dont end up eating pringles on the toilet while your dog watches or something similar.

Sheldon and amy are in bed, they cant sleep because they cant figure out what the present is. Sheldon wants to ask, amy says it would offend leonard and penny as its supposed to be perfect for them, sheldon doesnt care, she says they wont think youre a genius and he agrees not to ask. Eventually they get back up to tear up the box for clues, Sheldon is liking married life.

Howard and bernadettes kitchen, bernadette asks whats wrong with stuarts face hes still smiling. Hes happy because he asked denise out and she said yes. Theres a couple jokes in here about personal grooming and stuff but i cant remember it too well, its funny though.

Sheldon is hand delivering a thankyou card to leonard and penny trying to get info out of them. They ask if he knows what it is, he says yes and hes going to go use it then takes off out the door. Penny wonders if theyre being mean leonard thinks its funny. Sheldon screams from next door "what are you!"

Howards in the Caltech cafeteria, sheldon ask him if he knows what the present is, he does sheldon doesnt want to know because theyve figured it out. Its the first clue to a scavenger hunt that will lead them to their actual gift, howard says thats right. Sheldon leaves happy thanking a approaching leonard on his way. Raj and leonard sit with howard. Leonard is still laughing, Raj wants to know what it was. Its the present that howard and bernadette gave him and penny for their wedding, raj asks if its the crystal chakra(i think thats the word) he gave them for their wedding, it is. Howard lied about them liking it.

Sheldon and amy in berts office hes looking at the gift its quartz, they search what it could mean. Its based on a german word the same but spelt without a T. They decide the next stop is the coffee shop where they first met.

Stuarts comic book shop, he asks raj for advice about his date, i cant remember much about this except it ends with raj being really down about being alone (was quite sad actually), stuart asks if he should fake a phone call and leave then does.

Sheldon and amy going into the coffee shop, they are trying to figure out where their clue could be, they see the table they first met at. Theres a couple sitting there but they approach anyway looking for the clue, sheldon finds gum under the table. Amy goes to ask the barista if anything was left. Sheldon tells the couple this is where he met his wife and if they play their cards right they could be married in 8 years, turns out they're brother & sister. They redid this line a few times last time was sheldon saying font advertise that, he also said use protection in one shot.

Amy has the lost and found box, the barista gave it to her when she asked if anything was left for them. They think its because they were lost until they found each other. Inside the box theres a chain with a locket with a stone, Amy thinks its quartz, no pictures inside sheldon says so they can fill it with their own memories, he also finds sunglasses in the box he thinks they were left for him because their future is so bright. He puts them on they smile at each other, hold hands and (basically 😂) skip out.

Howard and bernadettes kitchen, stuart knocks asks them not to laugh. Hes orange, he got his hair dyed but it made him look pale so got a tan, hes tried washing it off and has tells them they'll need new towels, floormats, and a toilet seat. Howard makes a couple oompa loompa jokes.

Raj skypes his dad, he wants him to set him up with a wife, after a small convo he agrees as long as raj stops posting photos of him and his dog in matching outfits.

Back in 4A Sheldon and amy are thanking leonard and penny for the gift. Shes showing them the pictures of herself and sheldon theyve put in the locket. They are confused. Sheldon has a special thankyou card for them. He and Amy look so happy in this scene. The thankyou note theyve written is in sandskrit, but not regular sandskrit, they cant use the internet to translate it either as they are locked out of the wifi and the new password is in the card. Leonard isnt having fun anymore. Raj comes in and tells them hes getting married, they all react different, penny just says no. He describes the girl and how he just needs to hide his true self for 8 to 10 dates and its happening. Sheldon knows what hes getting them for a wedding present.

Tag scene is stuart knocking on denises door for their date. She laughs he says he wanted to look his best and made a series of errors. She still wants to go out with him. She says maybe she can help him find nemo. They walk down the hall shes making orange jokes, he asks if shes going to do it all night she is. He asks if she feels like chinese for dinner she says she feels like orange chicken.

And thats the episode, my friend has a very good memory for details so was filling in bits while i went lol

Bts stuff there were a few mess ups, mayim seemed in a great mood chatting with Melissa and simon and her and jim were joking around alot. Jim looked like he was struggling early then got into it. I thought they were going to start laughing when she was holding the crystal thing and they had to stare at it, and when jim put the sunglasses on.
They filmed a promo of the gang sitting around eating, they had to look like they were talking and laughing.
Johnny and kaley looked really sad when they did their speeches both were tearing up thanking everyone for their support and thanking all the crew etc. Curtain call they all came out together holding hands.
 

 Thank you, sounds great :)

@NotWonderland you're amazing!!! Thank you sooo much!!! I'm glad that you got to see two tapings of the last season and hope you had a wonderful time!

I skimmed through some parts to leave myself stuff to hear the first time wheb it airs. Overall it sounds like a really good episode and I hope it holds up when it airs. The Stuart plot sounds great! Finally he has someone who likes him and forgives his antics. Raj asking for a match hmm maybe he will surprise everyone this time and won't screw it up. The only thing that bugged me is that they have one episode saying Lenny are like the Fowlers and another, three days later, saying Shamy are "the good kind" of married couple, not like the Fowlers. Seriously?! Can't keep yourselves from bashing Lenny and elevating Shamy even when it's the last season? Geesh :icon_rolleyes:

BTW, the xxl shirt reminded me of Sheldon overestimating Penny's weight last year. So we have Sheldon thinks Penny is fat jokes here and there and it doesn't bother me but I just find it weird... Is there something I'm missing that makes those jokes funny?

I think they are showing that bits of the old Sheldon are still there with the inappropriate comments

What a wonderfully detailed summary.  I really appreciate it.  Did the whole group seem relaxed with one another?  I've been worried that there would be a different mood on set after so much news coverage this week, especially of Jim.  Your summary makes me think they were relaxed.....

Interesting that they are going with the Denise and Stuart relationship, I'm all for it, it would be great to see Stuart have some success on the romance front and Denise seems like a good match and an interesting character in her own right.

Are they setting up Raj's endgame with an arranged marriage?  I don't know, got to think the writers wouldn't really endorse that kind of arrangement even though it happens in a lot of countries and cultures, so right now I still think it's being set up for comedy purposes and ultimately it fails.  Or maybe he does finally meet 'the one' by making this decision?

I'd like to see the "set-up" fail and THEN have him meet his one true one.  Would love if it were Emily Sweeney, but, yeah.  Have this set up crash and burn and then without looking, meet "the one".

Well.  Now that the end is in sight, all bets are off.  EVERYTHING is on the table.  Anything is possible......

Indeed, and the end of his story is the most unclear out of all the characters on this show.

Thank you for the taping report. Sounds like another ho hum episode. Mercifully I hope this is the end of the wedding storyline. This makes the baby storyline look exciting. Raj asking his father to set him up with a girl. Isn’t this the third time? Two storylines really beating a dead horse. The most exciting part of this appears to be Stuart and Denise. Looks like their Lenny replacements

It should be that way. I just think the writers have given up on Raj and settling on his relationship with Cinnamon!

Wonder how long before he kills that relationship.

I really doubt that, but time will tell with Dr. Koothrappali.
