'The Big Bang Theory' is coming to an end this April, and there is a lot of discussion among fans as to how the finale will pan out. Once the final episode is out, the stars will be saying bye to the fans who have been with them on this journey for the last 12 seasons.

The news of the series ending came as a shock to the fans. And though Jim Parsons might be the main reason for the show to end, it may not be that surprising, after all, considering the fact that almost every character is now fairly settled in life. While the entire series will come to an end in a few months, the creators are trying to tie up every loose end they can find with the episodes left.

And though they are trying to keep everything under wraps so they do not reveal much information, there is one main plot that has been occurring throughout season 12 and that is finding a bride for Raj Koothrappali. It is a shocking to see the series so hell-bent on getting all their characters married.

Will it only be a happy ending to the story if all the characters are married? Can't one find happiness in being alone? Though Raj had a speech impediment he did seem happy living by himself. For instance, if we take the ending of 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' for consideration, Joey did not end up getting married neither did he end up with a possible partner, he was happy by himself. And still, it was a very happy ending to the series. 

But in TBBT the imposing of marriage on Raj's character just ends up making the story a bit boring. It is also a known fact he is the only character in the series that does not have closure for his story yet. That does not mean he has to end up married. Though recently Raj and Anu split, the show creators are still not letting it go and are trying to mend things.


Recently it was revealed that in the upcoming season 12 episode 12, Raj tried to mend things with his ex-fiance Anu. While the fans are hoping for an epic ending for the series, I just hope that they do not have a disappointing end like 'How I Met Your Mother'.

Apart from Raj trying to mend things with Anu in 'The Propagation Proposition', we will get to witness Penny’s ex-boyfriend, Zack (Brian Thomas Smith) and his wife reveal they want a baby. But then Zack informs Leonard and Penny he is infertile, and wants Leonard to help him. 

'The Big Bang Theory' airs every Thursday on CBS. Check your local listings for more information.
