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.
