WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Penny is dead. But! Turns out, because Penny was astral projecting, it's just his body that died. So there's sorta hope? Althought, he can't touch or do anything. And? Nobody seems to be crying when they find out that he "died". In fact, it seems like everyone is moving on from his death sort of quickly.
