‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Simon Helberg talks Howard Wolowitz, the father crisis and season 6 finale

The hit series, The Big Bang Theory, inches closer to the season 6 finale and star Simon Helberg talked with TV Fanatic in a May 9 article about the show, his character and onscreen wife Bernadette (played by Melissa Rauch.)

“…you see how much she loves him and obviously how much he loves her, but how much she’s willing to make him feel safe and happy and it was really sweet and it’s a really clever way, I think, to resolve that issue at the end using science to actually quell these emotional questions. I think it represents, in some way, where the show is at this point…and that happened a lot more this season. I think a great deal because of Steve Molaro [Executive Producer] who is at the head of it now and he likes real moments and real depth and so you have seen that quite a bit this year.”

“I think in terms of the letter…obviously it’s there for Howard at all times. I think it’s probably something that’s just built into him. It’s a kind of that complex tug and pull of this relationship with his father or lack of relationship so I think it’s easily something that can be dug up again or I think it would be very interesting to potentially find the father’s trying to contact him or the other way around…Howard keeps all that buried so there could be a lot of other stuff that’s buried too.”

He talks about the recent episode and then looks ahead to the finale.

“The season ends, as always, with a lot of unresolved issues and an adventure as well that Leonard is going on and Howard hooks him up with going to the North Sea with Stephen Hawking’s crew. Leonard decides to take that and go away for months and months and his relationship with Penny has never been better. Sheldon doesn’t want to be alone and Howard gets a little competitive that Leonard is having this going away party for his thing when no one cared about Howard going to space…Raj and Lucy, there’s also some major developments in that story that are unprecedented. It really feels like a fully formed season and show. I mean, everybody has so many incredible moments particularly in the last episodes.”
