Is Sheldon finally going to experience a big bang in more than theory? That’s at least what I’m hoping will happen when Christine Baranski reprises her Emmy-nominated role of Leonard’s smarty-pants mother in a January episode of The Big Bang Theory.

You’ll recall that when last the brainiacs crossed paths, the will-they-or-won’t-they tension between them was palpable. So it makes sense that viewers — at least this one — would wonder whether this time around Sheldon and the thinking man’s cougar would do it rather than duet.

My moles tell me that since both BBT and The Good Wife, where Baranski currently busts Julianna Margulies’ chops, are both on CBS, scheduling was no prob. But they still wouldn’t tell me what happens in the eppy.

Figures my sources would choose now to get tight-lipped. Thoughts? Make ’em known below. (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)
