The Big Bang Theory's love for all things comic-book knows no bounds. The show recently headed into production for Season 10, and it looks like fans might be getting an excellent nod to The Flash when the show returns. Mayim Bialik was the one who clued us in to this storyline when she shared the following image on social media:
That's Brandon Jones, who sadly has nothing to do with The CW version of The Flash that is currently gearing up to premiere its third season on CBS' sister-ish network. Pretty Little Liar fans may recognize him, however, as Brandon Jones played Andrew Campbell for a couple of seasons on the long-running cable series. Now, it appears he is headed to The Big Bang Theory for a guest stint, and Mayim Bialik is not above teasing the heck out of his appearance. In fact, she also had this to say:
He's sweet, he's southern and he feels comfortable in latex. Brandon Jones, we had fun having you guest star this week!
Latex and "flash-y" are pretty blatant clues, although we have no idea exactly how they will fit into the overarching plotline of the series. Since Jones only popped in for a week, it looks like he's just doing a guest spot that will somehow reference The Flash. Gotta love it.
References to comics, movies, franchises and TV shows can be found throughout The Big Bang Theory's episode count and The Flash in particular has come up frequently. For example, Sheldon was talking about whether or not he should commit to watching the CW drama just before he and Amy broke up at the end of Season 8. Then, of course, there's the big scene from early on in the series where all the guys dressed up in costumes that mimicked the one John Wesley Shipp wore in the early nineties. You can check out the infamous scene, where Leonard, Howard, Sheldon and Raj all mistakenly wore the same Flash costume, below.
The Big Bang Theory is approaching the end of a big contract during its 10th season. For the first time in years, the CBS comedy hasn't been renewed ahead of the season premiere. A lot of the cast has weighed in on whether or not they want to come back, and we think there's a good chance more Big Bang Theory will be coming down the line. Still, fans of the series should cherish all of these wonderful and witty Flash references while they last. You can catch new episodes starting on Thursday, September 22 at 8 p.m. ET, and the show will move into its regular Thursday night slot as football winds down.
