Poor Raj, he seems doomed to live a dateless existence, a fact which was made even more clear on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory."
For one brief, shining moment, he seemed to hit it off with a friend of Penny's, a deaf girl, who sadly was only in it for his money.
That's right, the Koothrappalis are "halfway between Bruce Wayne and Scrooge McDuck," according to Howard. Who knew?
It was great to see Howard as sort of the Cyrano de Bergerac here, using sign language to communicate what Raj was saying to his date. However, his wandering eye and Raj's dating issues still seem to be pointing to some kind of future plot development around Bernadette. We shall see.
Even so, any guy who can say that a woman's "eyes shimmer like opalescent lilies in the lake of the palace of the celestial maidens" can surely find a date, eventually. Though as we know, Raj has multiple problems in that area.
Sheldon's roll of the role-playing die to determine his face was a fun little distraction (especially seeing him with a mustache – the die determines all!).
Both relationship issues and "Dungeons & Dragons" are here to stay on this show, no doubt about it. Like Sheldon said to Raj when he refused to play because he was angry over his dating prospects: "If that becomes a reason not to play Dungeons & Dragons, this game's in serious trouble."
Do you think Raj will ever find love? Share your thoughts on iReport or post a comment.
