The Big Bang Theory is staging a major Star Wars reunion. This week's episode will feature guest appearances by both Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones; in other words, Princess Leia and Darth Vader will be on deck. Over at EW, they published a sneak peek at the duo's awkward reunion, which doesn't go off without a hitch.

So how does Sheldon (Jim Parsons) get so close to these sci-fi legends? After failing to get tickets for San Diego Comic-Con, he (Parsons) still ends up meeting some of his favorite stars. Unfortunately, judging by the picture it may be under duress. Somehow Sheldon finds himself in the company of Jones, and they go pay Fisher a visit. A visit that she's not receptive to.

Why does Fisher have a bat? Has her and Jones' relationship hit a snag over the years? Either way, she doesn't look happy to see her former co-star. Meanwhile, Jones looks ecstatic. Who can say no to that happy face? Hopefully, by the end of the episode, they can set aside their differences. We can't stomach the idea of them being at each other's throats.

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
