If you thought that Penny and Raj were actually going to turn into anything remotely resembling a couple on the upcoming fifth season of “The Big Bang Theory,” prepare to be proven wrong. After all, we already know that Raj cannot speak to women in his normal state — which creates quite an unusual problem in the girlfriend department.
However, someone looks to have a solution moving forward — and ironically enough, it’s the same person who he just hooked up with. According to TV Guide, Penny is actually going to set Raj up with a friend that is deaf, and so they will just have to figure out some other ways to communicate with each other. (Would Raj be just as nervous with sign language?) The possibilities here for humor do seem ripe for the picking, in particular since nothing really ever seems to go as well for Kunal Nayyar’s character as we would hope.
Season 5 of the hit show premieres on September 22, but we would bet this is probably not going to be the first episode out of the gate considering that Raj and Penny still have to work through some issues first.
Do you think this could be a good idea for a story?
