Throughout its airtime The big Bang Theory delighted fans with many moments closing in the final season.
However, there was one subplot that was never revisited, leaving viewers frustrated when thinking back to a specific Season 6 episode.
Entitled “The Tenure Turbulence,” this episode aired 10 years ago this week and follows the attempts of Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), and Barry Kripke (John Ross Bowie) to get one Permanent position at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) University.
Despite this episode focusing on her attempts, which include courting hiring manager Janine Davis (Regina King), the series would never reveal which character got the position. Since the episode aired, fans have posted dismayed messages on forums and talk sites.
“Yeah, that bugged me too,” a fan wrote on Reddit this week, adding, “You can’t just drop this thread, it’s important to their dynamic.”
Another fan replied, “I guess we’ll never know…”
“It still bothers me that they didn’t tell us who got the permanent position The big Bang Theory‘ one fan tweeted.
While the subplot was never revisited, it’s worth noting that the fact that Sheldon won a Nobel Prize probably tipped the scales in his favor.
Others have argued that the series presented multiple storylines that later eventually dropped episodes, which was actually part of the sitcom’s charm.
The big Bang Theory ended in 2020 after 12 seasons.
