First Look: 'Big Bang Theory' hooks up Sheldon and Leonard's mother!

Posted on

Hate to say “I told you so,” but… Wait. No. I love to say “I told you so.” And I did! I totally hinted at a future hook-up between Big Bang Theory brainiacs Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard’s mother, Beverly (The Good Wife‘s Christine Baranski), and see? On Monday’s episode, “The Maternal Congruence,” it’s happening. At least that’s the conclusion I’m drawing from the (possibly misleading) exclusive image above.

Oh, don’t pretend you’re as shocked as Penny (Kaley Cuoco) looks. You saw the sparks flying last time, too.

Timing for the return of the thinking man’s cougar couldn’t be better, either: Last night’s eppy brought in BBT‘s best ratings ever. And, considering how well the show’d already been doing, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that’s good.

So what do you think? Wound up or grossed out by the prospect of Sheldon and Beverly getting horizontal outside of a discussion of geometry? And which will be more fun, the snogging itself, or the moment when Leonard (Johnny Galecki) finds out? Weigh in below!
