Last week on THE BIG BANG THEORY, at Bernadette’s urging Howard, Raj, Sheldon, and Leonard sought to get some exercise, opting for the less strenuous, less demanding sport of fencing. While taking lessons from Sheldon’s arch nemesis Barry Kripke, Sheldon let it slip that he and Amy are no longer a couple and Kripke let it rip that he was interested in her. Amy wasn’t ready to start dating again and turned Kripke down. Sheldon for his part fumbled asking a random young lady for a date. So nothing advanced in their mutual decision to move on — yet. Rumor has it new relationships may blossom for both, even if just briefly. Are we in for a dating war?
Off to the side, Stuart asked Penny, Amy, and Bernadette for advice on getting women into his comic book store. Seems his sofa for breast feeding (with video surveillance to keep the pervs in check) hasn’t helped, nor has his creepy behavior around women, discussed at length on social media. Turns out there was nothing the ladies could do help poor creepy Stuart.
This week on THE BIG BANG THEORY, Amy sticks her toe in the relationship waters as Bernadette and Penny find a dating app for Amy’s phone, which produces some interesting results. Is this our first glimpse into Amy and Sheldon’s new battle to move on?
And as you’ll see in the preview video below, Sheldon and Leonard are forced to seek unusual sources for the helium they need to work on a project in the face of a nationwide shortage. A cloak and dagger rendezvous with a questionable source proves troublesome.
See the sneak peeks and then catch “The Helium Insufficiency” episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
