The Big Bang Theory Recap: 7.01 and 7.02 “The Hofstadter Insufficiency” and “The Deception Verification”


The Big Bang Theory returned with a one-hour season premiere packed with betrayal, a homecoming, and boob touching. Only in a Chuck Lorre sitcom folks.

Leonard has been away at sea for months. Penny and Sheldon are really starting to miss him, even if Sheldon won’t admit it. They end up calling him and realize that he’s having the best time of his life, much to their dismay. All is not lost for Penny though, seeing as how Leonard ends up coming home a few days early to spend time with his lady. Behind Sheldon’s back. You can imagine how well that worked out for them. Sheldon caught them kissing inside Penny’s apartment and let them have it. All was forgiven at the end of the day, but not before Sheldon spat with Leonard for a little bit longer.

Elsewhere in the season premiere–

Raj is still feeling blue over his lady love, Lucy, so Howard goes with him to a party to get him to talk to women, since he now can. After almost messing things up by sticking his nose in Mrs. Davis’s (Regina King) personal life, the two end up having a heart-to-heart chat that makes Raj feel much better.

Meanwhile, Amy and Bernadette are away enjoying some nice girl time, which turns pretty bizarre when they both find themselves attracted to strangers at a hotel that resemble each other’s significant others. Bernadette returns finding her husband in a situation with Estrogen supplements, which explains his hormonal state that leads to Howard asking Raj about his boob size. That leads to the boob touching. The premiere ends with the gang eating Chinese food, Sheldon sitting in his spot, happy about being together again.
