Sheldon’s ‘inappropriate’ gravy boat was a good start to the week’s episode as Bernadette’s is opening the wedding gifts. While Amy asserts that, she and Sheldon might be getting married in exactly four years.
Moreover, Penny has told Bernadette and Amy that she loves Leonard but she feels that she is just bored, so it’s possible that her feelings are anything but love. She thinks about breaking up with him again, and Amy tells this to Sheldon during the movie. Keeping up with his disastrous secret keeping skills, Sheldon tries to veil it with an efficient transformer analogy. However, Leonard interprets it in a complete different way thinking that Sheldon has feelings for Amy.
Faced with a dilemma that Sheldon isn’t quite habitual with, he tried to confess the truth to Leonard but he remembers that Amy has asked him not to tell him. Therefore, he does the next right thing and approaches Penny in the middle of the night to make her believe that Leonard is the real catch of a guy with the help of some ridiculous reasons. Later, he follows it with a touching final plea of not hurting his friend. However, Penny is right now processing the things that Raj said the previous week and thus needs to take a decision soon.
On the other hand, Sheldon did a good job of keeping it all to himself while trying to encourage Leonard to find someone else for himself as Penny leads a dangerous life. Later Penny ended up having sex with Leonard as she tried to break up with him. However, she realized that she has to do it faster if she’s going to do it because the more time she’d take, the more painful it’d be. Penny knows that he’s a good catch and for the reasons other than the ones stated by Sheldon.
Besides, in the space, Howard is being a low man on the totem pole. Everyone’s still calling him fruit loops and being a new guy, he’s been assigned the duty of cleaning the toilets. The space station is just like a high school that never ends and the other astronauts are being quite a bully in Howard’s case. Moreover, on the earth Stuart is sitting in for Howard. During the movie, Sheldon accepts him as a partner only because he has a ridiculous educational background and has no issues with eating Raisinettes. Moreover, thanks to his desperation for friends he is willing to change his playing cards only to please Sheldon as he continues to be the fake ‘Wolowitz’.
Therefore, the week’s episode was more of a bittersweet one. There were a few good laughs, but the main story line has been a week. Penny’s unable to decide, Howard’s astronaut are being despicable humans. Talking about Stuart, he doesn’t seem to be integrating well with the core group, and it won’t be possible unless he grows closer to Raj plus he’s being more awkward than everyone else on the show combined.
