It’s a bittersweet week for fans of The Big Bang Theory. The much-anticipated season nine finale airs tomorrow night, but that also means no new episodes until September. What’s a Shamy fan to do? (We’re not sure, so let us know if you have any ideas). After all, Thursday nights haven’t been this must-see since Friends went off the air. “If you had told me years ago that season nine was going to kick ass, I would have thought, ‘How is that even possible?'” Big Bang executive producer, Steve Molaro says. “Season nine has just been a blast. We’re all really happy with it.”

Tomorrow night’s episode will introduce viewers to Leonard’s dad, Albert (played by sitcom vet Judd Hirsch), for the first time in the series. He’ll be reunited with his ex-wife, Beverly (Christine Baranski), and introduced to Sheldon’s mother, Mary (Laurie Metcalf), as Penny and Leonard get ready to have a second wedding ceremony. Although the episode is one of the season’s sweetest and funniest, “it’s a little less bomb-dropping than [what] happened at the end of season eight,” Molaro reveals. “It ultimately ends in a very interesting and unexpected place for Sheldon and Leonard.”

Until the finale airs, we had some major questions for Molaro, especially after such an epic season. Will Sheldon ever propose to Amy? Will the roommate agreement ever be declared null and void? Do we even want it to? And for the love of pregnancy cravings, will we ever see Bernadette with a proper baby bump? Here are the answers to all your questions and more:

Glamour: First things first: Where is Bernadette’s baby bump?

Steve Molaro: [Laughs] It’s there. I think she’s carrying the baby quite well so far. Pretty soon, as we get into season 10, we’ll start to see it more.

Glamour: What about Sheldon and Amy? Will we see them get engaged or cohabitate?

Steve: There’s no set plan in place. Obviously that engagement ring is still floating around in the picture somewhere, but I think they are just in a great place right now. If and when something like that feels right to us, then it will happen. But also, those kind of moves can affect what the show is. Here at the end of season nine, a fundamental building block of the show is those apartments and Sheldon, Leonard, and Penny living there. I’m sure someday, somehow, some sort of adjustment to that will happen, but I don’t know when—and I don’t know what it will be.

Glamour: Are we going to see a resolution to the roommate agreement? As writers, how scary is it to mess with that dynamic, even if it makes sense?

Steve: I think it’s scary. I think there are levels of nervousness and levels of scary, and often if we’re writing something that’s making us nervous, that’s generally a good thing. That means we’re writing something that we care about that’s giving us feelings, and hopefully those feelings will translate to the people that are watching the show. When you start to get a little closer to the DNA of the show, then it starts to get even scarier. So, we’ll see. It doesn’t mean that we can’t try things and then un-try them. I think there might be some room for experimentation down the line, and we can see how we feel about it as much as how Leonard, Sheldon, and Penny do. But right now there are no plans for a major shift in living arrangements.

Glamour: This season was truly one of the best—if not the best—in the series run. Which episode means the most to you?

Steve: I think the Star Wars episode, where Sheldon and Amy consummate their relationship, is not only the highlight of season nine, but also a highlight of the series. Not just Sheldon and Amy, but the entire episode from beginning to end. All the story lines, with Leonard, Howard, and Koothrappali as excited [about Star Wars] as if it were sex to them. We’re all really proud of it. To me, if you could take a group of people who think they don’t like The Big Bang Theory, [and] I could just say, “Look, maybe you don’t like it, but will you at least just watch this [episode] and then make up your mind?”

Glamour: There’s clearly so many stories left to tell. At what point will you and the team sit down with CBS and Warner Bros. to talk about the series beyond season 10?

Steve: You know, I am such a small part of how that all works. That is really between CBS and Warner Bros. and the actors, so my only part right now is just to keep pushing along and make season 10 as great as it can be. When those contract things come up, we’ll deal with it—but for now, it’s not anything I’m even thinking about.

The season-nine finale of The Big Bang Theory airs tomorrow night on CBS at 8 P.M. ET. Come back to Glamour.com immediately after the show for everything that happened and why.
