Photos from this week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory have surfaced online, giving viewers a glimpse at a very emotional Raj and Penny in a different sort of costume. Oh, and flags are back! Minor spoilers ahead.
A set of new stills has been released from “The Monster Isolation,” which will air on Feb 21 on CBS. The photos preview Raj’s roller coaster of heartbreak with a new friend, a new episode of Fun With Flags, and Penny in a rare appearance acting like an actress. Check out the photos right here:

It looks like Kate Micucci, who appeared briefly (and somewhat tremulously) as Lucy in last week’s Valentine’s Day-themed episode, will be getting more screen time this week. We can’t help but wonder just what she’ll be doing to send Raj in such a sorry state, though. Maybe she likes her boyfriends chatty?
It’s also interesting to see Penny in what looks like a real play – certainly a departure for The Big Bang Theory. Between this and Penny’s first appearance on Fun With Flags, maybe the eternally-aspiring actress is finally moving toward stardom?
CBS only offers a hint in their official summary of “The Monster Isolation”:
After a terrible date, Koothrappali vows to never leave his apartment. Meanwhile, Penny actually impresses Sheldon with her acting skills.
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. on CBS.
