An accident with the new puppy leaves Russ and Lina (Nat Faxon, Judy Greer) with a staggeringly big vet bill, but not to worry: His best pal, AJ (Brett Gelman), is more than happy to loan them the money ... although as usual, there are many, many unexpected strings attached. Meanwhile, Jess (Jenny Slate), determined to bond with Lina, takes her out for a wild night of bar-hopping in the new episode "The Shower." Regina Hall guest stars.
Just as the Season 12 finale's subtitle suggests, it's "Winner Chosen" as Gordon Ramsay puts the remaining two contestants before five of Los Angeles' top chefs. As stressful as the challenge may be, it'll be worth it for the victor. The grand prize is the job of head chef at a Ramsay-run restaurant, accompanied by a salary of $250,000.
Sheldon (Jim Parsons) feels immense guilt over making a major scientific find by accident in "The Discovery Dissipation." Being up for a possible Nobel Prize is no help, since he knows his supposed triumph was a fluke. Wil Wheaton, again guest-starring as himself, helps set things right. Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) isn't happy about Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and Cinnamon's extended guest stay.
