A new relationship exists between Comic Book Store owner Stuart Bloom and his recently hired assistant manager Denise (no known last name). This may be the first steady relationship for sad sack Stuart. They went together to Sheldon and Amy's Wedding because Denise found out that Mark Hamill of Star Wars would be there. Her attraction to Stuart began when Stuart knew more about Star Wars trivia than Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker. They started dating in the second episode of season 12.
In Season 12 the couple is seen both working together and just hanging out at the comic book store. In "The Paintball Scattering", she asks him to move in, but is reluctant. Stuart doesn't want to ruin what they have. After the guys announce that they are cutting open a meteorite, Stuart insists that something bad will come from it. Later, when Stuart and Denise find no one around, they honestly think that something did happen and they are the last couple on earth.
