The Big Bang Theory started off being overlooked by many people.
However, the brilliance of the show could not be ignored for
long. With so many brilliant minds contributing to the making,
and a cast of gifted actors, it was inevitable that the show
would become such a success.
Season 5 left us all watching dear Howard being shot out into
space as his friends and bride watched with baited breaths. What
does season 6 promise us though?
After reviewing some websites I have discovered that next season
Howard and Bernadette's living arrangements will be settled. As
we all recall there was a dilemma because of Howard needing to be
'taken care of'. Also, the Wedding reception will not be shown
Leonard and Penny will continue to battle over what they wish to
get out of the relationship, Amy and Sheldon will remain similar,
Raj will feel even more restless now that his best friend is
married, and last but not least: We will meet/see Bernadette's
These are all facts that the writer's have released to the
public, but from those facts, and from being an audience member,
I have formed a few theories of my own.
Sheldon and Amy's relationship cannot remain stagnant for an
entire year if the writer's expect to keep the audience hooked.
There has to be developments of some kind.
A situation that I think could quite possibly happen would be if
Leonard's mother were to return, and Amy found out about the kiss
that happened between Sheldon and Leonard's mom.
Amy would get insanely jealous and start some sort of weird
competition because Leonard's mother is also a neuropsychiatric.
(Forgive me if I got her job wrong, I just remember it is in the
same field as Amy). My guess is this situation would most likely
end in Sheldon having to comfort Amy in his backhanded way.
I can imagine him saying something along the lines of:
"I did not choose to be shackled down to Leonard's mother
though." And Amy would of course be swooned by that.
Leonard and Penny . . . Oh dear. The writer's cannot have them
break up for a second time and expect the audience to not get
overly annoyed. Breaking up twice is just too much; so this time
will work out, or if they break-up it will be for good.
I tend to be more optimistic and believe that they will end up
together, seeing as the entire show has revolved around their
I believe two scenarios could happen:
1) Leonard and Penny both decide they want to get married but not
to wait, so they get married in Vegas. It seems something
impulsive that Penny would do, and Leonard being so happy to
marry her would go along for the ride. If I wanted to add to that
I could see their friends finding out and being so upset that
they weren't invited that they chase after them to be there (Amy
of course would have a fit).
2) Penny gets pregnant. I think this is a possibility because the
writer's have made references to that situation a few times.
(Penny taking a test in highschool, and her imagining getting
married at 8 months pregnant). If that were to happen that would
automatically force things to change between Sheldon and Amy
because Leonard would move out to be with Penny, and want the 2
bedroom apartment. So Amy would leap on this opportunity to have
her boyfriend move in with her.
The reason I've focused on the writer's putting in Penny's
pregnancy moments is that writer's in the past have done that to
hint about a potential pregnancy(Examples: That 70's Show Jackie
and Kelso have a scare: Kelso later becomes a father. Friends:
Ross discusses children with Rachel/ and Ben is a surprise. Plus
the writer's couldn't keep having him get married. Besides,
Chandler and Monica were already the married couple of the show).
The show needs to be kept interesting, and marriage has been
done, so next up:a baby?
At the very least a scare could happen which could fling Penny
into realizing she really does want to end up with Leonard.
What about the newlyweds? Think I could forget them? I believe
Howard and Bernadette will face a lot of problems in their
marriage for many reasons. Reasons like children, and
Bernadette's job paying better than his. How these problems will
develop . . . I don't know. I honestly am not sure how to feel
about the two of them. I thought they were going to break-up to
be honest. There were multiple hints about it happening, but it
would seem that it did not prevent the wedding (Obviously).
Raj I have no idea how his character will develop/ and or change.
Someone I know thinks that he might end up being gay but I am not
so sure about that one.
So there you have it! Let me know what you think!
