With only one episode to go until the Season Finale, this week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory was bound to be something special and it certainly delivered in adding a dramatic turn of events to the series. The episode ushered in the return of the disastrous killer-Gorilla movie, an accident involving Mrs. Wolowitz and, if that wasn’t enough, a surprise proposal.
This week’s episode seemed to do a pretty good job of solidifying relationships across the board, with Raj and Emily hitting a slight bump. The question on everyone’s minds no doubt, is will this relationship actually last? Fortunately, the sequence between Sheldon and Raj, where Sheldon finally suggests (and Raj finally admits) that he struggles with being alone, finally ushered in a new change for Raj, as it confirmed that this is a problem Raj struggles with. Hopefully, this means there might finally be some form of character progression for Raj in the sense of his own inability to be happy alone.
It would seem the imminent arrival of the Season Finale has kicked everything into overdrive, with progression in relationships happening left, right and centre. It may seem a bit sudden to some, who have become used to the slow pace that the show takes sometimes, putting some relationships on the back-burner to simmer for a while. However, it is certainly long over-due, and we can look forward to more episodes of The Big Bang Theory, as it is currently set to continue for three more seasons. Clearly continuing on the highs of the last episode, channelling the force of the Star Wars themed adventure, The Big Bang Theory delivers another solid addition which answers many open questions about the future of the relationships in the series, whilst creating a few more to look forward to.
