With everybody happy and in successful relationships -- except for poor Raj -- on "The Big Bang Theory," viewers must have known there was no way the bliss could last. And in the latest episode, Penny admitted to the other ladies that she was having doubts about her feelings for Leonard.
This was hinted at in the previous episode when she admitted she doesn't really say she loves Leonard. This week, she described the relationship as boring. But when Amy opened up to Sheldon about it, Sheldon was put in the impossible situation of trying to keep a secret from his best friend.
He was able to do so, with great struggle, but he also went to bat with Penny on Leonard's behalf. Granted, he broke into her apartment in the middle of the night, but it was still a nice gesture.
When Penny finally decided it was time to talk to Leonard about it, she took one look at his sad eyes ... and slept with him instead. Didn't think anything was going to be resolved that quickly, did you?
TV Fanatic found it annoying that the couple can't simply be happy, but TV.com said it was inevitable, as well as perfectly plausible for the characters. The romantic struggle plays out on "The Big Bang Theory," Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
