'Big Bang Theory' series finale: Breaking down the biggest plot twists with inside secrets! (Exclusive)

They went out with the biggest bang possible.

After a special one-hour series finale, The Big Bang Theory is officially over. We know you're sad. (We are too!)

Normally, Sheldon would recommend we get you a hot beverage to cheer you up -- but instead, we're going to spill the behind-the-scenes tea on all the biggest plot twists!

ET called up Big Bang's executive producers Steve Molaro and Steve Holland to get their exclusive explanations about the two-part finale's sweetest, smartest and most shocking moments!

"We just did our best to end the series in a way that honored these characters that we've loved for 12 years," Molaro dished over the phone last week.

"We wanted to make sure that everyone kind of had their moment to shine in the finale," Holland added.

From Penny and Leonard's newest addition, to Sheldon's monumental moment of growth, and Raj's famous new friend -- keep reading for all the inside details about how these moments happened!

The Elevator Is Fixed

For 12 long seasons, Penny, Leonard, Sheldon and the rest of our geeky gang was forced to walk up and down three flights of stairs any time they wanted to enter or exit their Pasadena apartments. But all of that was finally fixed with one surprising "ding!" and a delighted Penny stepping out of the doors.

The Big Bang showrunners revealed that the question they've most received from fans over the past 12 seasons was centered around that infamous broken elevator. "Originally, when we were talking about the finale, [the elevator reveal] was going to come much later," Holland dished. "And then story-wise, it felt like the perfect moment and it felt like a much bigger surprise coming so early in 23 instead of at the end of 24."

Leonard and Penny Are Pregnant

After years of will-they-won't-they, Leonard and Penny are having a baby! After a night of drinking at the Cheesecake Factory with Sheldon in the first part of the finale, Penny came back and "attacked" Leonard. In the next episode, which took place three months later, fans discovered that Penny and Leonard are very excited about their upcoming addition -- even if they can't agree on the story of how it happened.

"Attacked you?" Penny scoffed with a smile when Leonard recalled their special night together. "I said, 'Do you wanna?'"  

"And I was helpless," Leonard replied sweetly to his wife.

Turns out, this surprising pregnancy has been part of the plan since Leonard once boasted that their babies would be "smart and beautiful" way back in the pilot episode.

"I think we always liked the thought honoring and going back to the fact that Leonard and Penny were the beginning of this show and our central relationship," Holland revealed. "It just felt like really nice closure to them and I think writing against it this season it helped make it a surprise at the end."

Sheldon and Amy Win a Nobel Prize

Ladies and gentlemen, Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler-Cooper have won a Nobel Prize. (And no, this is not a Bazinga!) Not only did they win one of the world's biggest honors, Sheldon Cooper also did the unthinkable: he turned his acceptance speech into a tear-jerking appreciation speech for all of his friends. 

The executive producers confessed that Sheldon's big moment of empathy is "one of the few pieces" they've always known would happen in the finale. 

We knew that they would win and he would give his speech, but instead of making it about himself, he would make it about all the people that got him there. That was something we were talking about months ago," Molaro said.

Holland stressed that although Sheldon can be "self-centered," it was important for them to show that this brilliant man is still evolving as a friend. "[It's] just the biggest growth that this character can have in this moment that he's wanted his whole life," Holland said. "Instead of taking that spotlight on himself, he took that moment and he made it about his friends. And that just seemed like the biggest sort of character growth we could give him in the end."

Sheldon ended his speech by saying, "In my own way, I love you all," and Molaro revealed that this was the perfect way for this "complicated" character to express his feelings.

"I think the finale shows that these people are really patient with him. I think the way he shows love is not always typical or obvious and coming right out and saying it is about as close as we’ve seen him come to really letting his loved ones feel that love," Molaro concluded.

Holland added that is also "just felt right" for the return of Amy's tiara. "It was such a big moment for her character when she got the tiara," he recalled with a laugh. "She wore it at her wedding and so it just felt right that she would have it on at the Nobel Prize ceremony."

‘The Big Bang Theory’ cast's salary per episode

Kaley Cuoco Salary: $1 Million Per Episode

On “The Big Bang Theory,” Kaley Cuoco is Penny Hofstadter, wife of Leonard. Currently a pharmaceutical sales rep, Penny moved to Los Angeles to become an actress, but never got her career in show business off the ground.

Cuoco is one of the highest-paid actresses on television, behind only Sophia Vergara of “Modern Family,” reported Forbes. Cuoco has a net worth of $45 million. Since season eight, she has earned $1 million per episode of “The Big Bang Theory” to play Penny, a leap from her previous salary of $350,000, reported Deadline.com. Additionally, her work on the show has earned her a Critics’ Choice Award and a People’s Choice Award.

Unlike Penny, Cuoco found success in acting at a young age. At present, she has nearly five dozen acting credits to her name, dating back to the 1992 TV movie “Quicksand: No Escape.” Some of her most noteworthy roles include playing Bridget Hennessy on the series “8 Simple Rules” and starring as Gretchen Palmer in “The Wedding Ringer.”

Jim Parsons Salary: $1 Million Per Episode

Jim Parsons is Dr. Sheldon Cooper on “The Big Bang Theory.” A theoretical physicist who enrolled in college at the age of 11, Sheldon finds himself to be the perfect human, but his seriously eccentric personality makes him a bit difficult for others to handle. In the Oct. 10 episode of season 10, Sheldon finally decides to move in with long-time girlfriend Amy.

Playing the role of Sheldon has proven incredibly lucrative for Parsons, as he’s been banking $1 million per episode since season eight. His current salary is nearly three times the $350,000 he was earning prior to his contract negotiation, bringing his net worth to $70 million. Beyond monetary gains from the show, he also won a Golden Globe and four Primetime Emmys for his work on “The Big Bang Theory.”

Sheldon is the biggest role Parsons has ever played, but it’s certainly not the only one. He previously appeared on the series “Judging Amy,” lent his voice for Oh in the animated film “Home” and appeared in “Wish I Was Here,” among other projects.

Johnny Galecki Salary: $1 Million Per Episode

Penny’s husband, Dr. Leonard Hofstadter is played by Johnny Galecki. Best friend and former roommate of Sheldon, Leonard is a bit less socially awkward than the rest of his geeky pals and constantly finds himself stuck explaining Sheldon’s peculiar behavior.

Galecki earns $1 million per episode for his work as Leonard on “The Big Bang Theory.” Along with Cuoco and Parsons, he renegotiated his salary to its current rate from $350,000 prior to season eight. In total, Galecki’s net worth is $50 million.

Since starting his career as a child actor in 1987, Galecki has achieved major success. Besides “The Big Bang Theory,” he’s best known for his long-time role as David Healy on the series “Roseanne.” He also starred as Rusty in the cult classic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and the horror film “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

Simon Helberg Salary: $750,000 Per Episode

Howard Wolowitz is played by Simon Helberg. Prior to settling down with his now-wife Bernadette Rostenkowski, the aerospace engineer considered himself to be quite the ladies’ man. Until she passed away in season eight, Howard had a seriously overbearing mother who tried to control him.

Helberg’s net worth is $45 million, and he earns around $750,000 per episode of the CBS sitcom, reported Deadline. In addition to serious monetary gains, he also won a Critics’ Choice Award for his portrayal of Howard and has received numerous Screen Actors Guild Award nods.

Beyond his work on “The Big Bang Theory,” Helberg recently starred in the film “Florence Foster Jenkins.” He also has a recurring role voicing the character Bian Zao on the series “Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness” and appeared in the films “Van Wilder: Party Liaison” and “Old School.”

Kunal Nayyar Salary: $750,000 Per Episode

Better known as “Raj,” Kunal Nayyar is Dr. Rajesh Ramayan Koothrappali on “The Big Bang Theory.” For the first six seasons of the show, the astrophysicist suffered from the social anxiety disorder selective mutism, which made it impossible for him to talk to women he wasn’t related to.

Nayyar is paid a salary of about $750,000 per episode to play Raj, which has brought the actor’s net worth to $45 million. “The Big Bang Theory” has proven to be a lucky break for the actor — he picked up the role just a few years into his career.

Lately, Nayyar has been keeping a busy schedule. In addition to his obligations for “The Big Bang Theory,” he’s been lending his voice to a number of animated roles, including Vijay Patel on the television series “Sanjay and Craig” and Dr. Pakij on “Fantasy Hospital” — in addition to Guy Diamond in the movie “Trolls.” Previously, he’s guest-starred on “The Mindy Project,” “Sullivan & Son” and “NCIS.”

Mayim Bialik Salary: $100,000 Per Episode

On “The Big Bang Theory,” Mayim Bialik is Dr. Amy Fowler, Sheldon’s girlfriend. A Harvard-educated neurobiologist, Fowler met Sheldon in the season three finale and has been dating him on-and-off ever since.

Bialik’s net worth is $12 million and she reportedly earns $100,000 per episode for playing the part of Amy, according to numerous media outlets. Earlier this year, the actress told the NY Daily News that she, Cuoco and other cast members were overpaid.

A seasoned actress, Bialik has been recognized with a Critics’ Choice Award and four Primetime Emmy nods for her work on “The Big Bang Theory.” She starred as Blossom Russo on the hit ’90s show “Blossom.” She’s also appeared on a number of television shows, including “7th Heaven,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

We Meet Howard and Bernadette's Kids

The Big Bang Theory, Howard and Bernadette Kids
CBS

For more than three seasons, Big Bang fans had only heard of Howard and Bernadette's two children, Hallie and Michael, -- until now. For the very first time, the entire Wolowtiz family appeared together on-screen in the finale. Despite the sweet surprise, the showrunners revealed that seeing Howard and Bernadette's kids were never part of the plan -- not even for the final episode! 

"That wasn’t even planned when we were going in to write the scene. We were in it and then [Big Bang creator] Chuck [Lorre] said, “Why don't we just show the kids? It’s the last episode and we never have to show them again, so why don't we show the kids?," Holland explained.  "Part of the reason to not show them was it let us get away with not having to have kids on the set, which is difficult."

"And I will tell you that based on shooting that one scene, we were right," Molaro added with a laugh. "But that scene did turn out very cute!" It sure did. 

Raj's Self-Love Happy Ending

CBS

In a delightful twist, Raj Koothrappali ended up taking actress Sarah Michelle Gellar to Sheldon and Amy's Nobel Prize ceremony. (For the full story on how this surprise guest role came to be, check out our full exclusive article here!)

Sarah, who's married in real-life to actor Freddie Prinze Jr., stressed that this "wasn't a date," but Raj was still delighted to bring the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star as his platonic plus one.

Raj has come a long way since the Big Bang first premiered -- remember when he couldn't speak to women?! -- but the showrunners felt that it was important for this character to still be single. "To us that felt like a more satisfying end," Holland said. 

"I think the Kooth and Anu storyline was really nice and good for Kooth and got him some growth, but it didn't feel right for us to have him go off and enter into this relationship," Holland said, referring to Raj and Anu's breakup in the penultimate episode. "Not everyone has to end up married. Not everyone has to end up in a relationship. I still think there’s hope for Koothrappali and still think he, ultimately, finds someone who’s amazing and perfect for him. But I think it was a way for him to have a satisfying end to that story, but not tie everyone up in a relationship bow by the end."

One of the best things about showing up to Stage 25 all these years has been seeing @themelissarauch ‘s smiling face.
Leonard Hofstadter, PhD.
Do @kaleycuoco and I look like we’re keeping it together? Took this right before our final speed read. Before our final taping. Before my final emotional breakdown. Gonna miss working with Kaley so much. Sometimes you get to work with an actor that's so thoroughly in the moment that you can look to them at any time to ground you - Kaley has been that for me for eleven years. ❤️
Gonna miss napping next to @missmayim. We nap in adjacent dressing rooms, so we simulated what that would look like if you removed the wall. Did I mention that Mayim’s room is also where I’ve had some of my most productive psychotherapy sessions? Thank you Dr. Bialik. ❤️

Did You Catch This Easter Egg?

The Big Bang Theory
CBS

In addition to big plot twist, the Big Bang showrunners also made sure to include a few small Easter eggs for the fans -- and our favorite was in the beginning of the very last episode, "The Stockholm Syndrome."

"Leonard and Sheldon are glueing the DNA statue back together and Leonard says, 'This may be the glue talking but that was the most pleasurable 139 and a half hours,'" Molaro explained. "Well, we figured out that is how many hours of Big Bang Theory that have been created over the last 12 years."

"279 total episodes, which is 139 and a half hours," he added. 

The Big Secret About The Final Scene

The Big Bang Theory Series Finale
CBS

For the friends, family, fans and press members who were lucky enough to score an invite to The Big Bang Theory’s final live audience taping, they thought they were getting to see the entire episode. They thought wrong.

The showrunners dished to ET that they pulled one last “Bazinga!” and the final scene with Leonard, Sheldon, Penny and the rest of the geektastic gang eating chinese food in the living room was kept secret until the episode aired.

"It's how we wanted it to end," Holland spilled. "We knew the show and the final episode was going to involve some travel, but we really wanted to end it in our home."

The showrunners said they "talked about it a lot" and realized that they had a very specific ending in mind: an ending that didn't feel like an ending. 

"This show brings so much happiness to people and as a fan of it, I wanted to know that tomorrow morning they were still going to be hanging out together," Molaro explained. "So we kind of summed it up that this show can say goodbye, but the characters don't need to."

"Their lives are continuing and going on. It wasn't an ending for them," Holland added. "They’re still going to get up the next morning and go to work and Leonard is still probably going to have to drive Sheldon and they're probably going to play car games. For them, their lives are going to go on, but we’re just not going to see those stories any more."
