Should a very important event be postponed in the Big Bang Theory Season 10? The viewers are excitedly waiting for Penny and Leonard’s wedding, but new characters arriving might hinder it.
With the introduction of Judd Hirsch as Alfred, the father of Johnny Galecki’s character Leonard, Season 10 will introduce Penny’s mother and brother. Katey Sagal will be playing Penny’s “neurotic” mother, while Jack McBrayer of “30 Rock” fame will be portraying her brother, who is also a drug dealer.
As fans know, Penny’s side of the family has always been an enigma, although she has brought them up on a few occasions. It will certainly be interesting to see how their family dynamic will play into things, especially considering the possibility that Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) father and Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) mother really slept together in the season 9 finale.
In the clip released by Entertainment Tonight, Wyatt (Keith Carradine) asked Penny how her work as a pharmaceutical sales agent is going. Penny said that her work is doing well, and she’s just been assigned to a different territory. At this point, Penny’s mom Susan (Katey Sagal) threw shade at Randall (Jack McBryer) about his drug use. “See what happens when you work hard?” Susan told Randall. “Hey, she just sells drugs. I had to make ‘em,” he then replied.
Meanwhile, Susan urged her entire family to stop talking about drugs because it is a very sensitive issue especially with Randall around. “I’d drink to that,” Wyatt said. “Haven’t you had enough?” Susan asked her estranged husband. “Penny drinks more than I do,” Wyatt said. “Well, I learn from the best,” Penny told her dad, and the two of them cheered each other on.
According to Ecumenical News, Penny and Randall’s relationship as siblings is quite ironic because while Penny is in the industry of selling legal drugs, Randall is brooding on illegal drugs. Penny and Leonard will be getting married and the suspicious timing of Randall’s arrival may just have something to do with wedding disruptions. Will Penny and Leonard’s wedding be jeopardized because of Randall? Mark September 19 on your calendars as “The Big Bang Theory” Season 10 premiere.
