THE BIG BANG THEORY Sneak Peeks: Where Last Week’s Kiss Leads

the big bang theory

Things get really interesting on tonight’s THE BIG BANG THEORY. We hear that Sheldon and Amy will finally have “coitus,” but is that true or is it just hype to get us to watch?

Last week, Sheldon was obsessed with a song that he couldn’t get out of his head. He hummed it while he worked, he hummed it at breakfast, he hummed it at dinner, he hummed it till it drove him crazy — along with Leonard and Penny. And what’s worse, he didn’t even know what song it was. Discussing it with Penny, the synapses in his genius brain finally connected and he realized it was from a Beach Boys song with lyrics that mentioned everything that he liked about Amy. What he came to realize was that the song he couldn’t get out of his mind was actually his going over and over in his mind the things he loved about Amy.

Now, Amy had given up on Sheldon, who in the previous episode had said he wasn’t interested in getting back together with her. So Amy called Dave, her last date with whom she had broken up because all he wanted to do was talk about Sheldon, and invited him to dinner. And as Amy and Dave were sitting on her sofa nervously kissing, she heard the unmistakable sounds of knock-Amy! knock-Amy! knock-Amy! on her door. Amy answered the door to find Sheldon, who explained that he had come to realize he loved her and wanted to be her boyfriend again. And Dave, still the big fan of Sheldon, told the dummy to kiss her. Which to the delight of the live studio audience, Sheldon did — long and full.

And that brings us to tonight’s episode. “He’s ready to get physical,” Bernadette tells Amy in a video clip. Another shot shows Amy and Sheldon in bed together. Sheldon is “giving” Amy a special gift for her birthday! We shall see. A different video clip also makes STAR WARS references including in the title graphics and one below shows Bob Newhart dressed in an Obi Wan Kenobi costume. It seems Old Ben Kenobi will appear in a dream sequence to give Sheldon advice on which is more important, making it to the STAR WARS movie showing or making Amy’s birthday special. Speaking of the STAR WARS opening, Leonard, Howard, and Raj have an extra theater ticket and need to decide who to invite to join them — STAR TREK’s Wil Wheaton makes a guest appearance.
