Nobody Thought THIS Girl Would Save Raj And Howard’s Friendship

Over the years, Raj Koothrappali has made a lot of mistakes with women. In some cases, this led to the date climbing out the window or simply leaving before the date was over. But there’s one special girl he will always be there to help.

“No, I will not help you,” said Raj Koothrappali, before he added, “…but I will help Halley. She’s my Goddaughter and I love her.” Despite their feud, Raj made it clear he will do anything for Halley Wolowitz.

“And, I have a lot of party favors left over from Cinnamon’s birthdays…” he added.

In the past two episodes, Raj Koothrappali and Howard Wolowitz have been struggling to define their friendship. After years of verbal abuse, Raj decided that Howard’s negative energy was actually destroying what confidence he did have.

Essentially, Raj told Howard that they could not remain friends this way. After he broke up the bromance, Raj landed a dream job, went on a coffee date with a cute girl, and (slightly) changed up his wardrobe.

Thanks to Halley’s birthday party, the two were forced to rekindle their friendship.

During the latest episode, Raj didn’t invite Howard to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Howard temporarily didn’t invite Raj to the party. In the end, it’s clear that Howard needed Raj, and Raj needed to feel that recognition.

Hopefully, Raj and Howard can reach some sort of agreement so Raj can feel confident and Howard won’t feel betrayed. Either way, we hate to see these two fight over something that could be resolved.

In the end, the verbal fight ended with somewhat of a physical fight. While in the bounce house, the two started to shove one another. Their goofy efforts helped them laugh off the situation and get out some of their frustrations.

Every relationship is difficult, but it would appear these two are on the right track to patch up their lifelong friendship.

Do you think Raj needs Howard like Howard needs Raj?
