‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 8, episode 15 preview: Nathan Fillion and the Carol Ann Susi tribute

Fillion -It’s hard to even preview the next new episode of “The Big Bang Theory” coming on CBS in two weeks, simply because there has already been quite a bit made about this episode already.

For one, this episode marks a guest appearance from none other than Nathan Fillion, who is going to playing the ever-so-fun role of himself as Leonard and Raj run into him while out eating. This will comprise the fun part of this episode, but we envision a more serious side coming out at some point, as this is meant to also be the tribute episode to Carol Ann Susi, who voiced Howard’s mother through every season of the show. While the specific plans for this character are not entirely clear, we imagine that it will be very emotional. Take a look at the synopsis below for some further details:

“Wolowitz receives some shocking news as everyone prepares for the reopening of Stuart’s comic book store. Penny teaches Sheldon how to “let it go,” but can’t follow her own advice after she learns something infuriating about Amy. Also, Leonard and Raj think they spot Nathan Fillion at a restaurant.”

This episode may end up being both funny and a little bit difficult at times, at least depending on how the show decides to write off the Debbie character. We will probably hear a little bit more about this over the upcoming two weeks.
