What could¿ve been a major obstacle for Penny and Leonard¿s relationship, with Leonard offered a four-month excursion with Stephen Hawking, just proved how solid this couple has become. Penny encouraged Leonard¿s professional growth and offered to care for a freaked-out and jealous Sheldon in his stead. A lovelorn Raj (dumped by Kate Micucci¿s Lucy) spoke his first sober words to Penny in a breakthrough moment for the character. Another solid ending for America¿s number one comedy.
