‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 7, episode 3 ‘The Scavenger Vortex’ airs tonight

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our coverage will be reduced. We can't wait to get back to serving you all of the latest fandom news as soon as we can.

The Big Bang Theory season 7, episode 3, “The Scavenger Vortex,” airs tonight on CBS. What can we expect from this week’s installment of TV’s record-breaking comedy?

The Big Bang Theory season 7, episode 3 will air tonight at 8 p.m. Last week’s double-header of episodes 1 and 2 brought in a smashing 20.44 million viewers, breaking the geeky comedy’s most-viewed record.

It looks like things are settling down to normal (or as normal as ever) in Pasadena. In last week’s premiere double-header, Sheldon and Penny bonded over missing Leonard as he sailed the North Sea. Alas, betrayal soured their connection when Leonard arrived home early and he and Penny tried – unsuccessfully – to keep it a secret.

Meanwhile, Amy and Bernadette realized that their taste in men was uncomfortably similar, Raj tried to get over his ex-girlfriend Lucy, and Howard became a mildly offensive stereotype of the effects of estrogen.

This week, the gang is all back together! The official summary for The Big Bang Theory season 7, episode 3, “The Scavenger Vortex” says:

When the entire gang competes in a scavenger hunt designed by Raj, it brings out the best – and worst – in everyone.

One of the most intriguing things about this episode is the unusual teams Raj sets up for his scavenger hunt. As the photos below show, Raj has paired Leonard with Bernadette, Howard with Amy, and Sheldon with Penny. How will this madness go down?
