The Big Bang Theory Season 11 opened with Amy (Mayim Bialik) saying “yes” to Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) proposal, and it is set to end with the couple’s wedding. Throughout the current season, the couple has been shown preparing for their wedding, and with their big day fast approaching, it is apparent that one of the upcoming episodes of The Big Bang Theory Season 11 will be devoted to bachelor and bachelorette parties. And these parties are unlikely to be conventional or happen as planned.
Amy’s bachelorette and Sheldon’s bachelor parties will be “wildly different,” Entertainment Weekly reports. It quotes Kunal Nayyar (Raj) as saying that Sheldon gets an “epiphany” during his bachelor road trip, which he and the guys undertake to meet a scientist in the woods.
“Sheldon and the guys go on a road trip to meet a scientist in the woods, and Sheldon comes to an epiphany.”
Kaley Cuoco (Penny), on the other hand, tells EW that the girls’ bachelorette party ends on a cute note. The party, however, does not go as they had planned.
“There’s a really cute storyline where we do a little bachelorette thing and the ending is really cute. It doesn’t go the way that we thought it would.”
Amy’s bachelorette and Sheldon’s bachelor parties will feature in Episode 20 of The Big Bang Theory Season 11. The synopsis released for Episode 20, titled “The Reclusive Potential,” reveals that a brilliant but reclusive scientist, played by guest-star Peter MacNicol, invites Sheldon to his cabin, which is in the woods. He does not go alone as Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Howard (Simon Helberg), and Raj join him on the trip. For the bachelorette party, Penny and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) will have to rework on their original party plan as Amy finds it tame, according to the synopsis. The party night episode airs on Thursday, April 12.
Here is the synopsis for The Big Bang Theory Season 11 Episode 20, titled “The Reclusive Potential.”
“A brilliant but reclusive scientist, Doctor Wolcott (Peter MacNicol), invites Sheldon to his cabin in the middle of nowhere, and Leonard, Raj and Howard go along for the trip. Also, Penny and Bernadette improvise after Amy doesn’t like the tame bachelorette party they planned for her.”
In Episode 17, titled “The Athenaeum Allocation,” Amy and Sheldon finally decided on a wedding date. They are getting married on May 12. Along with the familiar faces, Sheldon’s brother will be part of the wedding as well. Earlier this week at PaleyFest, the show’s executive producers revealed that Jerry O’Connell had been cast to play Sheldon’s older brother, George. Laurie Metcalf will be reprising her role of Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper, in the finale. The Big Bang Theory creator Chuck Lorre said that Mary will be the one to walk Sheldon down the aisle, according to EW.
