Raj will be living with some of his friends in the upcoming The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 18.
It seems like the Caltech astrophysicist is hitting rock bottom. Raj (Kunal Nayyar) will move out of his apartment. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) offer him Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) old room instead. The most surprising of all is Sheldon seems fine with it.
In the previous episode, Raj decided to be financially independent from his parents. He is struggling to make ends meet. Raj tried several jobs and even missed Comic-con to save money.
In The Escape Hatch Identification episode, he will first crash on Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette’s (Melissa Rauch) couch. But there seems to be a problem since Stuart (Kevin Sussman) is also living with the couple.
Then Leonard and Penny offer Sheldon’s room at their apartment, TVLine noted. To the surprise of everyone, Sheldon is cool with it and is even glad that the couple is helping out their friend. Leonard is so stunned by his best friend’s reaction which makes him say:
“I think it’s nice that you’re taking whatever medication Amy is clearly giving you.”
Sheldon swears that he is completely comfortable with the idea that he’s being replaced by Raj. He told Leonard:
“If you’re implying that I have some problem with him moving into my old room, you’re wrong. Raj is in a different financial situation and I am glad that he is making changes to improve it.
Raj earlier appointed Sheldon as his financial manager, who also advised him not to go to Comic-con. Now that Raj is living with Leonard and Penny, could fans expect Sheldon advising them to have a new roommate agreement?
Based on his enthusiasm for contracts, Sheldon would definitely draft one for them. He had a roommate agreement with Leonard and then later on with Penny when she moved in after tying the knot.
Leonard’s Mom is Coming Back in The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Episode 18
Christine Baranski is coming came back to reprise her role as Leonard’s mom, Dr. Beverly Hofstadter. Like in some of the past episodes, she is not coming back for her son. Instead, it is for her beloved friend Sheldon.
Beverly will help Sheldon resolve the mystery behind his shockingly welcoming response to Raj’s moving in at his old room. Beverly is a neuroscientist and a psychiatrist. She adores Sheldon and gets along with him more than her own son.
Baranski earlier revealed that she is most recognized by people in her role in The Big Bang Theory rather than in her portrayal as an ace lawyer in The Good Wife and The Good Fight.
The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 18 will air on Thursday, March 9 at 8 p.m. in CBS.
