Our boy Leonard is back in the game – sort of.
On Thursday night’s “Big Bang Theory,” we saw Leonard breaking out of his dry spell with women by hooking up with Raj’s sister, Priya, who I hope we get to see more of in future episodes. We quickly learn that she is not at all shy like her big brother.
She was definitely far from shy as she grabbed Leonard in the hallway and proceeded to lay a big smooch on him, continuing the pattern of hookups established five years ago.
Wow. Who knew Leonard had a secret thing going on with anyone, let alone his homeboy’s sister. It seems that pinky swear with Howard to not mess around with her meant very little. Actually, keeping secrets is a theme with this group – but I’ll get to that later.
“Bangers” know that this is clearly one of the episodes where actress Kaley Cuoco - who plays Penny - is absent because she broke her leg, and I like that we still get to see Leonard wear his heart on his sleeve. That boy is a mess when it comes to the ladies, and watching Priya’s less than gentle rebuff of his offer to move to India to be with her was both sad and amusing.
Even funnier was Sheldon’s attempt to concoct an alibi for Leonard even though he didn’t really need one. I, for one, totally would have bought the story of a loose woman in an Irish pub slipping Leonard a napkin containing her number and an invitation for “coitus.”
One of the funniest scenes was Leonard, Sheldon, Howard and Raj admitting the secret things they had done to each other. Leave it to Sheldon to take the cake with having put ground up insects in Leonard’s food “for science.” Gross!!
Did you enjoy this episode or did it bug you?
