Here’s the good news: There is a rather big name set for the next new episode in Ming-Na Wen! The former Agents of SHIELD star and current performer in The Book of Boba Fett is going to be in season 5 episode 14 as a new potential foil for the title character. The synopsis below gives you a good sense of what’s coming:

Also, Mary is given a lotto ticket, on the CBS Original series YOUNG SHELDON, Thursday, Feb. 24 (8:00-8:31 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.
