They may not get back to that, it may not be mentioned again.

Some say it was left open or hanging, I don't feel this way. Nothing has changed from 12×03 as far as I'm concerned, Penny doesn't want kids, Leonard does but chooses to stay with her without having kids.

It's just a tv comedy and I think the audience should get what they want

You never know with these writers, but yeah, I dont trust them to do right with lenny. It's too late.

I totally agree. I see no evidence anything has changed. I could be wrong, but I'll be greatly surprised if this even comes up again. Last night they reran the ep on Zak's boat and I concentrated on the Raj and Anu story. I had forgotten how sweet it was when Raj's dad finally told him he was a good man, just a dope. The rest of it was just bizarre at this point. I don't now why they even did it.

Good on 1 level, bad on another, IMO. (Apart from Lenny just being enablers, which is bad on both levels) . I thought the dialogue was unusually good this ep, with a lot of lines I laughed at. I enjoyed the bit where Amy lost it for several reasons. It's always seemed peculiar to me that the Amy character is so immature compared with the other characters (except Raj, of course) but is the grown-up in Shamy, telling Sheldon what to do. Here she reverted to the uncontrolled, infantile Amy who broke Penny's nose and, unforgiveably, got away with it. I hope this outburst has some bad consequences for her. I thought MB acted that scene very well. The writers gave her the perfect lines and she delivered. I believed in out-of-control Raging Amy.

While the details were good, I think the writers and directors rejected an opportunity to make better use of the occasion for longer term. When I read they'd assembled some real Nobel laureates, I assumed they were going to knock this Super Asymmetry nonsense on the head once and for all. Sure the writers are the professionals, they know what they're doing etc, but they sure make some peculiar choices. An obvious way to play it would be for one of the laureates to ask all the characters what they thought of SA. Penny would have said honestly that it didn't mean anything to her, all the others would have been more or less positive. Then the laureate could have said something to the effect that Mrs Hofstadter must be the smartest of you all because she's right: it doesn't mean anything. Drs Cooper and Fowler, we're not saying your theory is wrong: what you have written doesn't amount to a theory with the property of being right or wrong, it's meaningless.

Doing it this way has the advantage of allowing for another development. While Penny was only mentioned to emphasise the nonsensical nature of SA, President Seibert, who seems not to be the smartest of university presidents, could have taken it literally and appointed Penny to some Caltech council (I've no idea if university presidents can do this, but we're long past that level of implausibility), which would mean that on formal university occasions Sheldon, Amy and Raju would have to defer to her. That would have been enjoyable.

And then everyone would get on their unicorns and fly away to fairyland. Which would have about as much chance of happening as what you described. These writers would NEVER do anything like that.  Mostly because there is no longer term here for them to worry about.
