Things have taken a turn to the domestic side lately on THE BIG BANG THEORY.
Last week, Howard and Bernadette had a big to-do with Raj, who had found out before they did the gender of their baby. They decided they didn’t want to know before the birth, but in the last clip before the fade to black, Bernadette called Raj in the middle of the night unable to stand the suspense. Meanwhile, Amy’s apartment had been flooded and Leonard and Penny suggested that Amy and Sheldon try out life together in Penny’s apartment, giving Leonard and Penny some much desired Sheldon-free privacy in Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment. It started out alright, but Sheldon’s obsessions quickly became an issue.
This week, we see issues between Sheldon and Amy escalate and Leonard and Penny must separate the quarreling couple, Sheldon threatening to break off their relationship because Amy won’t observe the bathroom schedule. Back at the Wolowitz residence, Howard and Bernadette decide to stay home instead of taking a planned vacation only to receive unexpected guests — just as Howard is upstairs giving Bernadette a soothing foot massage.
