Spoiler Alert! This post recaps portions of season 7, episode 16 “The Table Polarization”.

Do you think Sheldon always gets his way? Well on this episode of “The Big Bang Theory” he was almost shut down by Leonard with the help of Penny. For years the gang has always gathered around Sheldon and Leonard’s coffee table for dinner. But when Penny shows up late and has to sit on the floor instead of Raj they decide it might be time to get a dining room table. Sheldon of course opposes this idea because he hates change.

Determined to not let Sheldon boss him around anymore, Leonard and Penny go out to buy a new table. When they arrive with the new table Sheldon immediately hates it. He then goes on a rant on how Penny has changed Leonard but she then reminds Sheldon how Amy has changed him. Upset with this realization he storms off to break up with Amy. When he gets to Amy’s apartment she turns the tables on him and manipulates his decision to break up with her.

By the end of the show everyone was eating dinner at the new dining room table except for Amy and Sheldon. Feeling bad for Amy, Penny and Bernadette go back to their original spots in the living room. Soon after everyone else soon follows suit. So in the end Sheldon once again got his way.
