It looks like Christmas will come a bit late this time. The next episode, The Holiday Summation (10x12), won't air before January 2017, and while we're still waiting for a sneak peek take a look at some of the promotional photos!

From what we know Amy and Sheldon visit his mother in Texas. This also means that the wonderful Laurie Metcalf returns as Mary Cooper!

I'm not quite sure what happened here, but knowing Sheldon, he'll have an explanation for that and we'll just have to wait a few more weeks to find out... 

Looks like the trip didn't go quite well for Amy and Sheldon; they pay Leonard and Penny a visit for the first time since the holidays. 

We'll get to know all the terrible details about the trip and they're all back together now that the baby is born. 

Look at the proud daddy! Of course Raj and Stuart are tagging along. I like that they include Stuart a little more, even if he invited himself or not, I always feel a bit sorry for him being left out!

I'm actually wondering if we'll get to see Halley. It was once that, as paying homage to the late Mrs Wollowitz, we'll never get to see the little girl, but I'm certain we'll hear her! We'll see about that. 

Looks like getting used to being parents is harder than it seemed... I bet they're quite happy for having Raj and Stuart around. Those two always seem to have a plan. 

Bless her! I'm sure they'll be wonderful parents.

 

The Big Bang Theory returns on January 5th, 2017 at 8/7c on CBS.
