Switched At Birth Katie Leclerc

With his best friend altar-bound, Sheldon in the throes of a bizarre kinship with Amy Farrah Fowler, and Leonard juggling affection from two women, Raj has been the odd man out on The Big Bang Theory lately.

Well, that might change.

EW has learned Switched at Birth’s Katie Leclerc will guest in the fourth episode of this season as a potential love interest for the love-challenged scientist.

Leclerc will appear in the Oct. 6 as Emily, a deaf friend of Penny’s who hits it off with Raj, who we know has problems with talking to women (while sober).

Clever loophole, I say! But what about you, readers? Love this love connection?
