Leonard And Penny Seem Content…
It seems like everything is moving forward on The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon and Amy are engaged. Bernadette and Howard are having another child. Even Stuart has a date. But Leonard and Penny might be in trouble this season.
While things seem okay between Leonard and Penny, okay doesn’t mean great. The duo forget their own anniversary and it’s clear that children aren’t in their near future. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it may mean they aren’t talking enough.
This could all fall back to Penny being out of Leonard’s league.
Is The Spark Starting To Fade Away?
For the first few seasons of TBBT, it looked like Leonard didn’t have a chance with Penny. She kept dating meat-heads and Leonard stood off to the side. Eventually, she saw that there was something there between them.
If Leonard and Penny are going to keep the spark alive, they’re going to have to focus more on their relationship. In the premiere, they were certainly there for their friends, but somewhat distant between one another.
Leonard tried to make up for things with a cake, but that scene also proved that they had forgotten their anniversary.
Working On Their Relationship
The plot points and jokes on the show are going to keep changing, but hopefully, the couple will grow together. With Sheldon and Amy focusing on a wedding and Bernadette and Howard raising a child, it’s unclear what’s next for Leonard and Penny.
Perhaps they’ll focus on their careers or try to get away more. Right now, as a couple, their relationship revolves around their friends. They’re in the apartment with the open door policy, after all.
Hopefully, we’ll see some larger romantic gestures from Leonard and Penny. The cake was a sweet scene, but Leonard is capable of more. The joke about the baby was almost disappointing if you think their relationship is on the rocks.
Do you think Leonard and Penny will survive this season?
