‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 7 closes, ‘change’ is the theme as show set to move to Mondays

The Big Bang Theory season 7 closed out a bit differently with, spoliers ahead, a sweet and kind approach the characters without the abrupt cliffhangers of the past. The episode was titled “The Status Quo Combustion” with Sheldon’s avoidance of change being the key driver of the story.

Fans may recall that his desire to continue string theory research has ended and the university is not supportive of that decision. Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) are struggling to keep home care workers for his mother (Carol Ann Susi) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) is euphoric from the his now physical relations with girlfriend Emily (Laura Spencer).

“Leonard and Penny’s engagement is apt to drag on a while, but the idea that change is part of the show has already been established. Indeed, this is a very different series than the good one that premiered on CBS in 2007, having added Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch as regulars, introduced the notion of balancing fanboy pursuits with marriage and given the women virtually as much due as the central quartet of guys,” notes Variety in the Friday morning coverage of the show.

“A lot of things in Sheldon’s world aren’t the way they normally are and there’s nothing he can do to make them go back to the way they were,” executive producer Steve Molaro told TV Guide. “He realizes that and that’s big. … He couldn’t have done that a few years ago. We always say these characters develop at a glacial pace, but when it does happen, I think it’s pretty momentous. We felt like it was the right time to do this.”

As always the characters continue to grow and change. Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) is the only one left in turmoil as Sheldon exits without a formal goodbye. Some fans feel a bizarre or quirky reasons why he can’t say goodbye would have been a good fit.

The surprise is the fate of the comic book store was only matched by the amusing fate of its owner Stuart (Kevin Sussman).

The Big Bang Theory will return for three more seasons.
