Leonard and Sheldon have drifted further and further apart all season, to the point where Sheldon finally got a new roommate in Raj on Thursday night's season finale of "The Big Bang Theory."
Of course, Raj had to go through a long, arduous process to even become a temporary roommate, including involuntary blood work. "Not important" how that happened, Sheldon said.
As for Leonard's relationship with Priya, it crashed and burned, as anyone could have predicted, especially once her parents inadvertently broke the news to him that she was moving back to India.
Things also went sour for Howard and (soon-to-be-doctor) Bernadette after his jealousy over her success came to the surface after she bought him a nice watch: ""I just want my baby to have pretty things."
Things are more or less the same for another couple, though. Amy and Sheldon are still as platonic as ever, though she did teach him how to massage his own back. "My hands are magic!" Sheldon exclaimed.
"I could just as easily have paralyzed you," warned Amy.
None of that was anywhere near as surprising as a hung over Raj and Penny finding themselves in Leonard's old bed together (though I saw it coming as soon as the alcohol started flowing). After Raj nodded at Penny's suggestion that they keep this on the downlow, she responded, "Really? Still can't talk to me?"
The secret was short-lived however, when Sheldon, Howard, and yes, Leonard saw the pair emerge from the bedroom. Sheldon, of course, still didn't get what had happened.
A great finale after a season that had its ups and downs. I gotta wonder where things will go with the group next year. Aside from Penny, Raj still has that crush on Bernadette.
