  • SPOILER ALERT! TBBT will get another visit from a real life scientific genius on the upcoming episode The Herb Garden Germination (April 7th). The guest star is Columbia University physics professor Brian Greene will be playing himself. “Sheldon and Amy [Mayim Bialik] attend a reading at a bookstore where Brian is reading from his new book and Sheldon thinks the notion of trying to teach science to the general population is nonsense.” Naturally, fireworks erupt. Says Prady, “This is what we do on our show to famous scientists.” Maybe that’s why Stephen Hawking has so far steered clear. He’s no dummy! Source
  • SPOILER ALERT! Apparently Raj will get over his fear of women… at least for episode 22. Raj brings Sheldon along as he tests out a new drug (think drunk Raj) that helps him get over his issue. The problem is that is works a little too well. There might be public nudity involvedSource
  • SPOILER ALERT! Howard and Bernadette: An upcoming episode sounds as much like Grey’s Anatomy as it does BBT. When Howard breaks it to his overbearing mother that he and Bernadette are engaged, “things go terribly wrong, as you’d expect,” teases the groom-to-be’s portrayer, Simon Helberg. “There’s some dramatic moments, [but] it’s very silly and crazy — and very funny, hopefully.” Moreover, he teases, “It’s not what you expect it to be….” Hmm. Source
  • SPOILER ALERT! SEASON FINALE: Turns out that once Simon Helberg (Howard) starts doling out the scoop, he isn’t apt to stop. Not only does he tell us, “Bernadette gets a promotion, and that affects Howard in a certain way” — which I assume, fortune-cookie style, means in bed — “things will come to a head with Leonard dating Raj’s sister, and how Penny feels about that.” Source
