We hate to do it, but let’s start off this “Big Bang Theory” season 6 article with some bad news: there are only six episodes left for this entire season before the finale. While there have been some down moments here and there (in particular the story before Howard returned home from space), this has quite possibly been the strongest span of time for the show yet ever since he came home. We’ve had brilliant ideas, great guest stars, and some examples of subtle evolution among some of the characters.
On Thursday night, we are going to see even more of that courtesy of an attempt by Leonard and Penny to throw some sort of serious cocktail party with themselves and some friends. Seems like a modern-day “Downton Abbey,” no? Unfortunately, there just so happens to be a few things that go terribly awry, and it leads to some of the facial expressions that we see in the photo attached. Unfortunately, we don’t really know much as to what caused these characters to look like someone has walked into the apartment dressed as a giant bird (hence Sheldon’s fear), but hopefully the promos in the coming days will shed some light there.
In case you are wondering, this is the episode that is also going to feature Howard Wolowitz receiving a mysterious letter from his father, and he will spend some time trying to figure out whether or not he wants any contact at all with this man. While there have not been too many mentions of him over the show’s run, we know that the man left his son at a very early age.
