Remember when we told you that “Southland” star Regina King was going to be appearing on an upcoming “Big Bang Theory” season 6 episode? Well, we now have some more official details about this gig, and we can start things off by saying that it is going to be an awkward one for both Dr. Sheldon Cooper and the rest of his friends.
This episode (the twelfth of the season) is entitled “The Egg Salad Equivalency,” and it is going to be airing on Thursday, January 3. Margo Harshman will once again be returning as Sheldon’s assistant Alex, and we have a feeling that she is actually the person being talked about in the episode’s official synopsis below (at least based on what we reported previously):
“Sheldon gets accused of sexual harassment at the University and winds up getting Leonard, Raj and Wolowitz in trouble.”
So will this episode mark the end for Alex on the show? It’s hard to necessarily imagine her staying put with her current boss given their current situation, and the storyline between her and Johnny Galecki’s Leonard has not exactly wetn anywhere fast since it first surfaced on the show earlier this year. (We do figure that Alex’s true feelings will be revealed eventually, possibly even here.)
We are assuming that at some point Penny and possibly Amy and Bernadette are going to be getting involved in the action this week, though it is not entirely clear as to what their story will be just yet.
Do you think Sheldon’s comments could end up costing him an assistant? We want to hear some more of your thoughts below! If you want to read some more scoop pertaining to Kunal Nayyar’s character of Raj, you can do so by visiting the story that is up over at the link here.
