The Big Bang Theory - The Earworm Reverberation

In an episode that will culminate in the return of Shamy, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) begins going crazy after getting a song stuck in his head his eidetic memory is incapable of recognizing. Driving both Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) crazy as well, Sheldon will eventually not only remember the name of the song but realize its meaning to him. There’s plenty of fun frantic Sheldon moments throughout before Sheldon admits his feelings for Amy first to himself (and Leonard and Penny) and later to his girlfriend.

The Bachelor Party Corrosion

Pre-wedding celebrations are held after Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) have returned from Vegas, and worked out their post-marriage issues, as Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) kidnap Leonard and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) for a Mexican road trip in Richard Feynman‘s van for an overdue bachelor party celebration.

Relationship problems are the common theme of the second episode of The Big Bang Theory‘s Ninth Season. Hoping to alleviate Penny‘s (Kaley Cuoco) discomfort, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) talks with the woman (Melissa Tang) he made out with during their time apart. After making a realization during that awkward conversation (mostly for the marine biologist), he finally sits down and talks honestly with wife about their mutual fears about the other leaving them for greener pastures. Although it’s not the case with every relationship this week, by the end of the episode the Hofstadters appear to finally be be back in a good place.

The Big Bang Theory - The Commitment Determination

Relationship change is at the center of every storyline in the show’s Eighth Season finale that teases big changes for every single character but (mostly) fails to follow through. After some nagging by Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) begin discussing a wedding date and eventually agree to a spontaneous wedding in Vegas, although a late reveal from Leonard spoils the mood and leaves the couple in a nebulous state still on their way to Vegas but without the finale delivering the long-promised ceremony.

The Communication Deterioration

While Penny (Kaley Cuoco) balances the possibility of renewing her acting career and weighing it against her new successful job Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) work together on a NASA project which they decide both Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Howard (Simon Helberg) are too controlling to be a part of. The final nail in the coffin of Penny’s acting career is satisfying allowing her to realize the toxicity of her former profession and compare it to her current job. Given the tease of a possible role in an upcoming movie I half-expected the show to steer her back to a potential career-making role but I’m glad to see the show has continued to take a more realistic view towards her acting career.
