    Leonard deserves love from Penny because he earned her love for many years. She broke him up multiple times,slept with his best friend, it took years to tell him, just a word "I LOVE YOU" and small hurtful like when she notices someone she hate in season 6 episode 16. But these things didn't make Leonard get over Penny. He could get over Penny, but he did not because he loves make him brave and patient.moreless
  • The Status Quo Combustion

    8.5
    Changes all around in the season finale of TBBT. Penny and Leonard announced their engagement and Raj and Emily have an ongoing relationship. Sheldon tried to change his field of study but the university refused to let him do it. Also the subject of living arrangements came up which is another huge shift in Sheldon's life and he did not take it well at first but after some thinking he decided to make some changes. It was an interesting episode that shook some things up and I hope the show will explore those different dynamics in the next season.moreless
