The health of Penny and Leonard’s relationship has always depended on who is feeling more superior in regards to their jobs or the self-esteem related to them. However, this is the first time that Penny has surpassed Leonard in something other than looks and social skills.

At the beginning of the show, Penny was quite dependent on her dreams of becoming an actress.
Right now, she is more mature and content with good friends and a stable job. At the same time, she has the agency to figure out what she wants and aim for it without the need of pacifying others or their expectations involving her.
