Tania Raymonde head to the CBS hit on Thursday, Feb. 6 when, during the comedy’s Valentine’s Day-themed episode, Leonard and Penny “almost kill” Raj’s beloved canine companion, Cinnamon, and The Hollywood Reporter has the first look at the actress’ debut.
During the episode, titled “The Locomotive Manipulation,” Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) are charged with caring for Raj’s (Kunal Nayyar) dog and have to rush her to the vet after a nearly fatal mishap.
“Everybody winds up spending the night in the vet’s office,” showrunner Steve Molaro tells THR. “Maybe the vet is a cute young lady and maybe Raj is so worried about his dog that for one night he’s not a nervous jackass and he’s charming. We’ll see what happens from there.”
While Raymonde’s role is set at one episode, Molaro stresses that both Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik‘s Bernadette and Amy, respectively, both started with minor roles before ultimately being promoted to series regulars.
Raj’s new romance comes after the Big Bang Theory writers had the character (finally!) overcome his selective mutism after he had his heart broken by former flame Lucy (Kate Micucci). This season, Raj has been testing the dating waters but has yet to find any success.
