return of the goat!
I love continuity. I've been wondering these past few weeks how they were going to resolve the goat thing from last year.

I think D took Ted being beat up by a goat as a personal shout-out. (I already got mine a couple weeks ago with "girls whose names end in -ly are dirty". D: "Don't I know it.")

And forward progress on the BroTP?

Yeah, great finale. Some of the episodes this year have been a little off for me, and this one felt more together. Especially since we got Lily back for more than two seconds.

I DID TOO :D, I was thinking about you when that happened ... okay I sound mildly weird.

YESH. Also, I'm really really happy that we will finally get to see the mom. Or we will have a fun time trying to guess who she is :D.
Also, I'm in the Merlin fandom and the slash is oppreshuning my ship. :(

When they said the mother was in Ted's class, D said, "So, Robin's giving up being a reporter to study architecture?" I have to keep yelling at him ROBIN'S NOT THE MOM! He says that just to annoy me.

It looks like they're setting Penny/Leonard up again, but I'm not really buying it. I don't feel like she's all that into him.

Aw, sweetie. I'm pretty much staying out of my new fandom and playing by myself, because it's full up with slash, too, and that's just not my thing. I don't see it, you know? Some people say they see it everywhere, and I hardly see it anywhere. I'm just not made for fandom, I guess.

HAHAHAHA, I give points to D for all his awesomeness.
I think the problem with Penny/Leonard is the writing. The writers just can't develop it properly :(. BBT is just one of those fandoms where I enjoy the characters without the compulsion to ship but hey, I think Penny/Leonard isn't half bad. I once read this cute Penny/Raj fic but I have no intention of scouring through the sick minds of the writers who took part in the porn battle I'm judgemental, what do you know XD?

You and me both, sister, you and me both :).

The problem is definitely the writing. The last couple of episodes were telling us that Penny has feelings for him, but I'm left wondering, "Why?" I'm not in her head. I don't know where she's at. It's like the opposite of Barney. I see where Barney's coming from because we've been shown this progression with him. With Penny, she hasn't had that sort of progression, I don't think. Her friendship with Sheldon is much more developed. I'd guess the writers saw the goldmine of opportunity there and were having so much fun with it that they kind of forgot to work through her feelings for Leonard, then they got to the end of the season and were like, "Crap, didn't we want to do something about Leonard let's paste it on real quick and worry about it next year."

But, yeah, BBT is not a shippy show for me. I love the characters, but I have no need for anyone to be paired up. There was a porn battle? I knew I stayed out of fandoms for shows I actually like for a reason.
