The Big Bang Theory 's recently concluded sixth season marked the show's official victory over ABC's Modern Family as the number-one prime-time comedy in the 18–49 ratings demographic, but fans have been buzzing more about the game-changing story lines introduced in the final two episodes. At last, Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) has had a meaningful conversation with a woman while sober; Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) have finally taken their relationship to the next level (well, a next level); and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) have found their happiest place ever as a couple, despite a new job that will separate them for four months.
