The Big Bang Theory season 11 spoilers: Is a Raj – Howard ‘breakup’ coming?

Raj - HowardFor much of the run of The Big Bang Theory, the Raj – Howard relationship has been at the center of the story. Now, however, that seems to be changing.

The upcoming December 7 episode of the CBS series carries with it the title of “The Confidence Erosion,” and one of the biggest things that we’re going to see in this half-hour is something that we certainly never envisioned: These two friends being at odds. As a matter of fact, Raj may be done with the friendship altogether. For more news on that, take a look at the synopsis for this episode below:

“The Confidence Erosion” – Sheldon and Amy try to eliminate stress from wedding planning by applying math to the process. Also, Koothrappali “breaks up” with Wolowitz after realizing his best friend is actually hurting his confidence, on THE BIG BANG THEORY, Thursday, Dec. 7 (8:00-8:31 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The Raj – Howard breakup (as friends) is something that is a long time coming. They have some issues that they clearly need to work on across the board, starting with the constant belittling that tends to take place. While it may come from an innocent place Raj is the butt of many jokes, whether it be his love for the finer things in life or some of his relationship woes. Howard is also the sort of character who has a tendency to project some of his problems onto other people as a means to feel better about themselves.

While we do want this episode to be really funny, we do appreciate The Big Bang Theory getting to the heart of a number of different personal issues. We don’t obviously think that Howard and Raj are going to have problems forever, but this episode could end up bringing the two of them to a different place.

Meanwhile, the Sheldon – Amy storyline sounds fun, but it’s also more in the vein of what we would expect from a couple of different characters like this.
