When last we geeked out with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, Leonard watched Penny do the Walk of Shame — away from his own bedroom, in fact, where she had comically (and very drunkenly) slept with Raj.

Things will nonetheless be quite complicated for Leonard and Penny when Season 5 arrives this fall — and TVLine has the scoop on what’s to come.

“Every year, we’ve left ourselves a big mess at the end of the season. It’s fun to do, and we also like things complicated for Leonard and Penny,” series boss Bill Prady told us. “We’re working right now on untangling the mess we left.”
“每一季结尾我们都会留个混乱局面的结尾给观众朋友们。这样做很有意思,我们也很希望看到Leonard和Penny的关系变得更复杂。”制片人Bill Prady告诉我们。“我们现在的工作就是要把我们上一季留下的烂摊子清理干净。”

To that end, although Leonard (played by Johnny Galecki) and India-bound Priya (Aarti Mann) were on the verge of splitsville in the season finale, they will decide to try to keep their romance chugging along — even with 7,500 miles separating them.

“We’re going to put Leonard in a long distance relationship with Priya,” says Prady. Couple that set-up with the fact that Penny (Kaley Cuoco) still has feelings for her brainy ex, and the result is “Leonard with two women and no sex,” Prady chuckles.
