JIM PARSONS (Sheldon)
“I did really enjoy the episode where Amy was sick. Her lassoing Sheldon into taking care of her goes to my point of Sheldon doing almost anything that is justified in the name of science or reason. In that case, she was sick enough that she needed to be bathed; she needed to have something rubbed on her bare chest; and by the end, she’d done so wrong that when Sheldon found out that she’d lied that she needed to be spanked. The young lady gets exactly what she wants by a young man who’s doing it for different reasons. It’s really brilliant.”
MAYIM BIALIK (Amy)
“The spanking episode. That was fun largely because it was supposed to be off-camera, and at the last minute, Chuck Lorre decided to film it. That was really fun and awkward, right in front of the audience letting it come alive.”
JOHNNY GALECKI (Leonard)
“Penny telling Leonard she loves him is pretty big. We didn’t play it as a watershed moment. It was played as if she’s always known this. It was touching. I also love the moment when Leonard says, ‘I know I propose a lot,’ and then promises that he won’t. It’s one of my favorite Leonard lines to say. To put his own desire aside and say, ‘You tell me when you’re ready, despite what I want in my life right now and with you right now.’ That’s unconditional, selfless love.”
KALEY CUOCO (Penny)
“When Penny said, ‘I love you’ to Leonard. It took her more than five years to say it. That’s why now you know with Penny that whatever she does is real. You know when she said it she truly meant it. That’s why now Leonard is OK with going away and knowing that they’re going to be OK. We did that in one take. Steve came out and said, ‘We’re really happy with that. Do you want to do it again?’ We didn’t want to; it felt perfectly right. I told Johnny: ‘It was so weird — I became Penny in that moment.’ There was no audience, just Leonard and Penny. It was a moment I’ll definitely never forget.”
KUNAL NAYYAR (Raj)
“I’ll always remember this season. This is the season where these guys are getting to the point in their lives now where their priorities are not, ‘Let’s have video game night.’ It’s, ‘I want love. I want a family. I want a relationship. I need a partner in my life.’ That is the season for me; watching them shift from, ‘Let’s buy a time machine,’ to, ‘Am I going to get married to this girl? Am I going to ever find love? Am I ever going to find a partner?'”
SIMON HELBERG (Howard)
“Sheldon and Amy deciding to get physical — but in the context of Dungeons and Dragons. It’s a really brilliantly constructed scene where they’re rolling the dice to figure out which article of armor, or clothing, comes off. It’s really an amazing moment and a microcosm of the show. It is the reality of these characters, yet it’s very universal. It’s real to them and what maybe is a small step to other people, is as big of a step to these characters as you can find.”
MELISSA RAUCH (Bernadette)
“The letter episode was so special. I really loved how they showed that aspect of Howard and Bernadette’s marriage. It showed the emotional component of marriage and how Howard was going through this really traumatic event, and they did it together. They’ve always done a good job of showing the love between Howard and Bernadette — even though they bicker and they don’t always see eye to eye at exactly the same time. I just loved how that was a dual effort of helping them come to Howard’s resolution and him talking it out with her.”
“I can’t pick one.
- Leonard and Penny saying, ‘I love you’
- Raj’s speech in the comic book store about how they’re all a community, if they have each other
- Sheldon making Amy his emergency contact
- Howard coming back from space. Every character has had these incredible moments this season.
- Raj standing in the hall convincing Lucy to go out with him because he swears he’s messed up in the head.
- The end of the closet episode when they all tell Howard what might be in the letter and one of them is true.”

This story contains spoilers!
Showrunner Steve Molaro, stars Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, Kunal Nayyar and Kate Micucci talk with THR about what’s ahead in the final episode of season six.
CBS’ The Big Bang Theory took two small steps for man and not one but two giant leaps for Sheldon and Raj during Thursday’s penultimate episode of its record-breaking sixth season.
During “The Love Spell Potential,” Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) were effectively forced to answer the biggest question facing them as a couple: Will they or won’t they? The answer, revealed during a clever game of Dungeons & Dragons, is … maybe, when the neurotic Sheldon reveals to his girlfriend of three years that he hasn’t ruled out turning their relationship intimate.
“They proceed to role play what is essentially their first sexual experience but it is completely asexual at the same time; I love it,” show runner Steve Molaro tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s funny, weird, nerdy and touching. It’s a huge step forward and at the same time, it isn’t. I don’t know where they go from here but I know they’re moving forward.”
Meanwhile, the lovelorn Raj (Kunal Nayyar) bailed on the D&D game in favor of another date with the equally damaged Lucy (Kate Micucci) who, after attempting to bail when he pushes her forward faster than she’d like, winds up planting a smooch on her boozed up sweetheart.
“He’s found, as he would say, someone who has even more issues than he does and he thinks that’s very attractive in a woman,” Molaro says. “He’s falling for her. They had this sweet, slow-moving, broken relationship and it’s very nice to see them move forward in it. That kiss was weird, sweet and touching and if you can get all those into one moment, it’s pretty great.”
THR hit the Burbank set of The Big Bang Theory to get the scoop on what the latest developments mean for both Raj and Lucy as well as Sheldon and Amy.
Sheldon and Amy
“The writers have managed, with all the characters, to have some severe levels of advancement in character growth with very miniscule movements and this is another example of that,” Parsons says of the sexy scene where his D&D character gets down and dirty with Amy’s gaming character. “What’s changed? In some ways, everything you know about Sheldon you begin to look at differently if he’s actually willing to consider sometime in the near future having a physical relationship with Amy. He’s willing to step over a line that he wouldn’t cross before and engage in this imaginary level of it. He’s decided that this person is important enough to him to try to make a change.”
Bialik, meanwhile, says the episode felt like Amy and Sheldon’s own season finale. “We consummate aspects of our relationship through the language of Dungeons & Dragons and it’s a very intimate scene — like the spanking episode — that felt like a very personal thing in our characters’ relationship being played out publicly,” she notes. “That’s as far as Sheldon can go and it’s very sweet. There are ways that every couple manages the challenges they have and Amy and Sheldon are definitely working it out.” As for whether it will make Amy a big D&D fan going forward, Bialik is fairly confident she’ll be eager to play the RPG again.
Raj and Lucy
“When the episode starts and things begin to fall apart, I never thought it was going to end with a kiss through a chain-link fence,” Nayyar says of Raj’s lady lovin’ that comes after he pushed Lucy a bit too hard to take greater strides speak up for herself and send her food back. “There was something very beautiful about that scene — she’s a bird in a cage, almost as in life, and is trapped in this metal cage and Raj has to help her out. Through complete frustrating with trying to help her, they find a vulnerable moment together and kiss. I had chain rust under my nose but it was wonderful.” As for what comes next, Nayyar says Raj is going to want to define their relationship and introduce Lucy to his coupled-up friends — both circumstances that could send Lucy running for the nearest bathroom window. “They haven’t talked about boyfriend-girlfriend yet but a part of him wants to lock it down,” Nayyar says, noting he’s enjoying playing a new side of Raj. “He has really found someone and he really believes that this is his chance for love and he wants to introduce her to his friends, which is getting her in a situation where she’s not comfortable and thus helping her evolve more as a person.”
For her part, Micucci says Lucy’s social anxiety won’t fade away following her kiss with Raj. “If anything, they’ve gotten worse because she’s trying to figure out dealing with a guy,” she says, noting she identifies with her character. “Raj’s understanding of Lucy and her really wanting to make this work with him keeps them going and brings them closer.”
As for what comes next week when TV’s No. 1 scripted comedy wraps its sixth season, Molaro notes the series will feature another game-changing moment as it has so frequently this season with Penny’s profession of love to Leonard, Raj’s kiss and Sheldon and Amy’s intimacy discussion. “There will be a watershed moment at the end for at least one of the characters; there will be a major breakthrough,” he says.
