Episode complete credited cast:


Amy has now started her summer research stint at Princeton. Much to Leonard's chagrin, he has reassumed many of the responsibilities for Sheldon that Amy had taken over when she and Sheldon started seriously dating, such as driving him to specific places. But one of the responsibilities that Leonard can and will not take over may be instead assumed by Dr. Ramona Nowitzki, who Sheldon first met years ago when she was an admiring grad student and who has now reentered his life as she does research at Cal Tech. Sheldon then could not see that Ramona had a romantic interest in him, but now having been in an intimate relationship with Amy, Sheldon may now be more susceptible to romantic female advances. Sheldon and Amy's friends do not know if Ramona is once again after Sheldon, and thus if they should be worried for Amy's sake and do something to intervene or at least inform Amy of Ramona. Things take on new dimensions when Amy does find out about Ramona, and at least one person within ... Written by Huggo

What a Television Miracle
3 July 2017 | by (Dallas Texas) – See all my reviews

"The Big Bang" has now finished season 10. Most series that go on that long are usually on life support. "Modern Family" is an example of that and so is "The Middle" and "Workaholics". However "The Big Bang" is still going strong. This year the episodes have not been the greatest however the last 6 were strong shows and the season finale was one of the best episodes the show has ever had.

Now there has been a few plots the show has stolen from "Friends". They do a little twist on them but writers come-on if your going to steel give the writers from "Friends" story credit.

The last episode of the year was not "FUNNY" at all! It was emotional for not only for all the characters on the show but the audience as well.

In a nutshell the characters on "Big Bang" put up a major defense to protect to Amy from a woman who is out to steel Sheldon. It is was something special to watch. You see how far all of them have come in the way they think of Amy and how much they really care about her and Sheldon.

Again the episode wasn't focused on jokes and innuendo. The show focused on emotions and showing how "Friends are there for you when you need them the most".

If this episode doesn't get the show an Emmy Nod for writing and the show itself then shame on them. The show is overdue for Emmy Awards.
