After a two-week hiatus, “The Big Bang Theory” season 9 returns for episode 19, with a surprise in store for Amy.
In the upcoming episode titled “The Soldier Excursion Diversion,” Sheldon (Jim Parsons) will be buying Amy (Mayim Bialik) a new laptop. However, the latter will be surprised. It is unlikely that the gadget alone will shock her, so does this hint that Sheldon may finally be proposing to Amy?
Their relationship earlier was a roller coaster ride, but eventually, they realized that they love each other. The couple even became intimate on Amy’s birthday, while Sheldon’s grandmother Mee Maw also met her. Will they be taking the next step, especially since Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) are already married and that Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) are soon-to-be parents?
As for the rest of the characters, Penny and Bernadette will be mad at Leonard and Howard, and most likely even with Raj, after the three men went to see a movie without asking for permission. It may not help Raj as well, as he did not listen to the two ladies on their advice about Emily (Laura Spencer) in the previous episode.
The official synopsis indicated on TV Guide reads, “Sheldon shocks Amy with a startling revelation after she buys him a new laptop. Meanwhile, Raj throws Leonard and Howard under the bus after they lie to their wives and sneak off to an early screening of a movie.”
Meanwhile, fans will also finally see the father of Leonard, revealed showrunner Steven Molaro during the PaleyFest, reported Variety. The role will be played by “Taxi” actor Judd Hirsch.
Galecki explained, “I ran up to him and just kind of bombarded him with verbalization,” noting that part of his on-screen character was inspired by the actor.
“I did share with him, and this is true, that when we were shooting the pilot I watched the first two or three seasons [of ‘Taxi’]. Not because I wanted to base Leonard on his character, but the purpose that his character served in this group of people. [He was] just as much, at times, a voice of reason as he was just as confused as everyone else,” he added.
“The Big Bang Theory” season 9 will air episode 19 on March 31 at 8 P.M. ET on CBS.
