Kunal Nayyar on The Big Bang Theory Finale: WHOA!

by at . Comments

Kunal Nayyar is as shocked as you are.

The Big Bang Theory star, whose character of Raj did the deed with Penny on that sitcom's fourth season finale, said at CTV’s 2011-12 Fall launch this week that he didn't see the development coming.

Raj and Penny?!?

“I was quite surprised when that happened,” said Nayyar, who spoke to TV Fanatic earlier this year. “There was no indication during the season that we were leading up to that."

Does he know where things will go now between Raj and Penny? Nope. But he has hopes.

"To be honest, my first instinct to what happened is that perhaps Raj should try to apologize to Leonard and rebuild that friendship first. But on the other hand, it would be pretty cool to date Penny, too.”

What do you think Renny should do next?

Raj and Penny have nothing to apologize for to Leonard. She's been moping for the whole season about their break up, whereas Leonard's been boinking random women and more recently started dating Priya semi-seriously. Raj has nothing to apologize because Leonard slept with his sister first, in *his* bed.


i want Penny and Sheldon together instead, they look like a cute couple.


Sorry, I disagree. Penny and Leonard aren't right for each other. Leonard just likes her because he is having sex with a beautiful girl.


i hate this season finale =( i hope the fix it saying that nothing happend or something


@Mike How is it funny if she uses Raj for sex? And funny awkward scenes with Leonard? What about bloody painful for the poor bastard. First she dumps his sorry ass, and when he finally seems to get over Penny, she first tells Raj that she still loves Leonard and then has sex with Raj? The characters of both Raj and Penny have been butchered and for what? So people will talk about this show during the hiatus. I was a Penny Leanard shipper, but I really hope that he'll give her a very cold shoulder from now on. I'm done with this show.


Leonard and Penny have to be together. How could the writers do this?!


No on Dating but think it would be funny if Penny just used him for sex, when she is drunk, upset or in the mood. PS. That should have been a 3rd poll option. Also that you add to some funny awkward funny scenes with Leonard.

@Piecar: We're just trying to provide fun content for readers, as always, without any shows on.


It's all polls. Is this your way of seeing who's actually still reading in the off season? Clever.

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Raj: Well, to paraphrase Shakespeare: It's better to have loved and lost than to stay home every night and download increasingly shameful pornography.
Penny: Oh... you poor baby.
Raj: What's wrong with me, Penny?
Penny: Nothing, nothing. You know, if we weren't friends - and you hadn't brought up that creepy pornography story - I'd be on you like the speed of light squared on matter to make energy.
Raj: Hey, you totally got that right. E = MC squared.
Penny: I listen. I have no idea what it means, but I listen.
