'Big Bang Theory' First Look: Carrie Fisher takes on James Earl Jones...with a bat! -- EXCLUSIVE


(Robert Voets/CBS)

Sheldon’s quest to hold his own comic book convention is going to lead to a clash of two Star Wars legends on this week’s The Big Bang Theory.

In the episode, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) decides to organize a convention after failing to get tickets to San Diego Comic-Con and somehow finds himself having a crazy night with James Earl Jones. Now, how that encounter leads to the one you see above in an exclusive photo, we can’t say. Judging by that bat, however, we can pretty much guess that Fisher isn’t too happy to see Jones – or Sheldon, for that matter – on her doorstep.

You can watch the outcome of this run-in when the episode airs on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Also, we hope Sheldon has something to say about Fisher’s choice of self-defense. Because, ehem: lightsaber>bat.
