Over the course of the past seven seasons of the hit CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory we have seen the relationship of Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) have many ups and downs, while all anybody has wanted is for them to get together and stay together and live happily ever after. The relationship of Penny and Leonard is very similar to that of Ross and Rachel in Friends.
We think it is fair to say that everybody is now well aware that Leonard and Penny got engaged in the last episode of The Big Bang Theory, which has got many fans of the show excited for the upcoming wedding. With that said, will we actually see the couple go through with it and see a Penny and Leonard wedding episode, or will something once again come between them?
While we have no doubt that a Leonard and Penny wedding episode on The Big Bang Theory would send the ratings through the roof, and would also have a huge impact on the dynamics of the show, once again keeping it fresh, we can't help but feel like it would lose some of its appeal. One of the key points of The Big Bang Theory has been the on and off relationship of Penny and Leonard and it would be hard to keep that going.
As for how the news of the engagement will hit Sheldon, Jim Parsons has revealed, "He gets the hell out of there and I have no idea where he's going or what he's planning. I won't know until I come back and read the first episode [of season eight]. All the [personal and professional] changes that are taking place finally start to come home to roost for him as problems."
The Big Bang Theory season seven finale will air on CBS on Thursday, May 15 at 8/7c.
Do you think we will actually get to see Penny and Leonard get married on The Big Bang Theory?
