Episode complete credited cast:


Amy has now started her summer research stint at Princeton. Much to Leonard's chagrin, he has reassumed many of the responsibilities for Sheldon that Amy had taken over when she and Sheldon started seriously dating, such as driving him to specific places. But one of the responsibilities that Leonard can and will not take over may be instead assumed by Dr. Ramona Nowitzki, who Sheldon first met years ago when she was an admiring grad student and who has now reentered his life as she does research at Cal Tech. Sheldon then could not see that Ramona had a romantic interest in him, but now having been in an intimate relationship with Amy, Sheldon may now be more susceptible to romantic female advances. Sheldon and Amy's friends do not know if Ramona is once again after Sheldon, and thus if they should be worried for Amy's sake and do something to intervene or at least inform Amy of Ramona. Things take on new dimensions when Amy does find out about Ramona, and at least one person within ... Written by Huggo

The show is losing its quality....but only slowly.
19 June 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Completed The Finale today and to me the show has lost its freshness,it has been a soap opera for while now. I think the only scenes now i love/ enjoy are which includes Sheldon or Howard/Raj. Rest all of them are so soapy. Story wise : The ending was something i didn't thought would happen s10, may be in S11 or S12. TBBT had almost 24 good episodes in the early Seasons, then it became 15-20 good episodes ,then to 10 good episodes but now its more like 5-10 good episodes a season. Character wise : Sheldon : i think he changed drastically from his older self but still he brings some thing good in the show( his dialogues are more predictable since we all know how he is going to respond). Leonard : i didn't fully liked the character early , and still he hasn't able to change it.(strictly MO). Howard : He is still manages to do something to make you smile. Raj : i am disappointed the way creators treats his character, he is the one character that has been with the main characters continuously since S01e01 but still hasn't improved that much ( a little change this season ), everyone has love affair why don't they give him some good story-line rather than make a fool every now and then. at first it was funny but it is more like "ahh/mmm". penny : She was good in the early season but the charm is decreasing slowly. Bernadette : She is still the same as she was before(almost). love the interaction's she has with Howard. Amy: now i think like why would she come to the show, not because i don't like her character arc, she is good. but she was the main reason that Sheldon changed so much. Stuart : still same no changes at all. once i used to wait for TBBT to arrive but now it doesn't feel like that any more. they should try to include more job based theme rather than family which made this a good show.
