What happened in The Big Bang Theory season 11?

Sheldon & Amy get married

Season 11 was a huge one for The Big Bang Theory with Amy Farrah Fowler (played by Mayim Bialik) and getting ready to tie the knot.

Most of the season saw Sheldon and Amy planning their upcoming nuptials with varying degrees of success.

One episode focused on Sheldon reconciling with his brother George (Jerry O’Connell), who was the one left looking after the family when he went off to college.

George initially refused to attend the wedding but after a heart-to-heart the brothers finally reconnected.

Sheldon also got some help from his friend Professor Stephen Hawking to get to his big day.

They finally ended up getting married with Star Wars actor Mark Hamill serving as the officiant.

Raj & Ruchi

Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) embarked on a romance with Ruchi (Swati Kapila) but things didn’t go quite to plan when she insisted she just wanted to keep things causal.

To make things more complicated, Bernadette asked Raj to spy on Ruchi because she was convinced she was stealing her project work.

Bernadette was right and Ruchi was stealing from her but Raj defends his beau.

When Ruchi found out that Raj had been spying on her for Bernadette, she dumped him and he was single once more.

He had less luck when he started dating a separated woman called Nell (Beth Behrs), who also worked at the Planetarium with him.
