Big Bang Theory Sets Carol Ann Susi Tribute Episode

The Big Bang Theory will bid farewell to Mrs. Wolowitz later this month, and, by extension, pay tribute to the unseen character’s late portrayer, Carol Ann Susi.

TVLine has confirmed that the CBS sitcom’s Feb. 19 episode — “The Comic Book Store Regeneration” — finds Howard grappling with shocking news concerning his mother. The (presumably) tragic turn of events coincides with the reopening of Stuart’s comic book store — a shop that, much to Howard’s shock and awe, features a new seating area filled with furniture from his mom’s home.

This is the same episode that features a guest turn by Nathan Fillion, although the Castle actor does not figure into the Mrs. Wolowitz subplot.

Susi died last November after a short battle with an aggressive form of cancer. She was 62.

    This will be an emotional one not only for the show but to the late Carol Ann Susi.

  3. I’ve been wondering what they were going to do. I’m glad they are finally addressing her death on the show. I will have my box of tissues ready. RIP Carol Ann.

      After reading the article I was also thinking about making sure there’s a box of tissues nearby. It’s going to be a funny/sad episode. RIP Mrs. Wolowitz.

    I am looking forward to see how the writers handle her passing. They have a deft hand with tender moments

    Bittersweet, but I’m definitely looking forward to this episode.

      ETA: Sadly, CSI could not give the same consideration to Phyllis Frelich, who portrayed Grissom’s mother, since they chose to divorce Sara and Gil. Travesty.

    I was hoping that they would have a fitting fairwell since she has been a major part of the show from it’s start. They HAVE to grow up some time.

    Hope they make a fitting end to some one who had a small but integral part of the show . The writers usually do an excellent job of this type of story. Perhaps they may show a picture of the lady on a dresser or cabinet or something .

    we saw that episode. It was very nicely and tastefully done; I was looking for an “in memory of at the end. If my husband hadn’t read news of the actresses’ death I wouldn’t have known. But the episode was excellent — a good tribute.
