The whole cohabitation experiment has gone in all kinds of loops and directions but tonight’s episode of “The Big Bang Theory” proves to be the most unexpected of them all as Sheldon (Jim Parsons) forces Amy (Mayim Bialik) to procreate.
Given that two genius lovers have been living together for four weeks going on five right now, Sheldon obviously thinks that they would need to elevate their relationship by having a baby. Titled “
In the episode titled “The Brain Bowl Incubation,” the awkward theoretical physicist is fascinated by the thought of him and Amy producing an offspring. But instead of the usual enticement that comes with making a human being, his motivation is actually fueled by an experiment that successfully combines his and his girlfriend’s genes.
In the promo clip released for the episode, Sheldon whips out his seduction skills, or lack thereof, and tries to lure Amy into bed. What is interesting about this is that at the start of this whole playing house setup, the two talked about taking being intimate off the table. It was only last season when the longtime couple finally jumped on a bed together, ironically, after their brief breakup. And since then, it has not been directly depicted anymore. Needless to say, it will be interesting how the how the two will resolve this discord especially with Amy obviously being so annoyed with Sheldon trying to get what he wants.
Elsewhere in the episode, Raj (Kunal Nayyar) gets uncomfortable with coming forward to his friends about what his new lady friend is doing for a living. Spoilers suggest that the mystery lady is actually a cleaning aide in the university which is also hinted in the promo photos for the installment.
Meanwhile, a tip from Variety reveals that a “The Big Bang Theory” spin-off may already be in motion over at CBS. The prequel series will revolve around a young Sheldon during his younger years in Texas. The show is said to be penned by showrunner Steve Molaro.
It is still unknown how this project will move forward should its parent sitcom live past season 10. As of now, the future of the hit CBS series is still in limbo given that most of the cast’s contracts are already expiring and negotiations may entail a salary raise which is already a huge part of the program’s budget.
Needless to say, should Sheldon’s pre-teen narrative hit the ground, there will be high expectations for it given that it will still be coming from the same people behind the successful nerdy show.
“The Big Bang Theory” season 10 airs every Thursday, 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
