The first season finale of The Big Bang Theory promises to shed light on the much awaited prospect of romance writers have been toying with during the course of the season.  After 17 hilarious episodes, the CBS sitcom wraps up its pilot season with the episode called "The Tangerine Factor."

Read on to find out what's in store Big Bang Theory's season ender.

Looking back at the season, we immediately saw Leonard's interest in Penny despite Sheldon's belief that his friend is chasing a dream he'll never catch.  Leonard fell head over heels for Penny within seconds of spotting her though it is not apparent if Penny every returned Leonard's affections.  It was clear, however, that she at least seems to enjoy Leonard's company, and rather dislikes Sheldon.  Though at one point, Leonard decided to ask Penny out to dinner, the “date” unfortunately turned into a disaster as Leonard does not get the confidence to reveal his true feelings to Penny.

In tonight's season finale, Leonard finally gets the courage to ask Penny out on a real date when she breaks up with her boyfriend.  This time, Penny says yes.  While they each seek the wisdom of reluctant advisors in preparation for the big date night, Leonard practices the date the day before with the guys.

The Big Bang Theory stars Johnny Galecki as Leonard, Jim Parsons as Sheldon, Kaley Cuoco as Penny, Simon Helberg as Wolowitz, and Kunal Nayyar as Koothrappali.

Joining the main cast in “The Tangerine Factor" is James Hong who guest stars as the character Chen.  Hong, who previously appeared in the episode “The Dumpling Paradox,” has appeared on TV shows like Zoey 101, Chuck, Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, and Twenty Good Years, just to name a few.  He is also part of the cast of the upcoming animated film Kung Fu Panda.
