Upon seeing Alex Sokolov (Michiel) on one of her flights, the two falls for each other and become sexually intimate, only for him to be found murdered the next morning.

Huisman spoke about shooting the act of lovemaking with Cuoco on This Morning, saying it was incredibly awkward because Cuoco had never been a part of an intense sex scene before this series.

After like take three she starts to shake a little bit and I’m like ‘Kaley, what are you doing? Just sit down!’ And it turned out that she was so uncomfortable and she had no idea how to do this thing. She was trying not to touch me.

Cuoco, who has always shown herself as a highly-skilled actress, managed to eradicate her awkwardness in the final piece. In fact, her success in the show earned her a host of award nominations, including the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, and the Golden Globes.
