The Relationship Diremption | The Big Bang Theory
I really enjoyed the way the writers framed Sheldon's disillusionment with String Theory like a breakup with a woman he had been involved with for years. It allowed him to be vulnerable and hyper-emotional in a way he probably wouldn't be if he were dumped by Amy. Seeing him turn to Cosmo as a guide during these difficult times was a hoot.
And it led to a number of memorable lines, with one of my favorites being, "Now I realize I was just a simple country boy, seduced by a big city theory with variables in all the right places. This storyline gained momentum when Sheldon, Amy, Penny, and Leonard sat around the dinner table and Sheldon began perusing his library for a new field of interest.
His increasingly hysterical reactions to each option were a hoot, whether it was calling geology "the Kardashians of science" or launching into a terrible British accent to denounce Loop Quantum Gravity.
But it peaked after a night of drunken debauchery resulted in Sheldon waking up in bed with an open geology textbook. That scene was cleverly framed to make viewers think it was Amy on the other side of the bed. But even with all the progress their relationship has made in recent months, that would be pushing it. Aside from the second Barry appearance, my only complaint with the way this story ended is that there wasn't much closure.
Sheldon never actually found a solution to his dilemma, and so we'll have to wait and see if his quest for a new field of study continues or if he just resumes his String Theory scribbles like nothing ever happened. I'm betting it's the latter outcome. Thankfully, the writers also took the time to continue exploring Raj's romantic misadventures after last week's developments.
It was a little weird how Lucy was basically brought back into Raj's life this season and written out again this week as a mostly off-screen character. I don't know if Kate Micucci wound up having scheduling conflicts or the writers decided they just didn't need her, but it's definitely odd. In any case, Raj made further progress with Emily this week, going so far as to double date with the Wolowitzes. I appreciated how expectations were subverted and it was Howard, not Raj, who wound up having the uncomfortable evening.Halloween The Big Bang Theory s12
He also tells his colleagues that he has changed his field of study because he has not seen any potential in the theory of strings. Sheldon, who has been working in this field for years, is doubtful about himself and his career. He expects to devote his remaining life to a theory that can not be proved at all. After a sleepless night Sheldon talks to Penny about his concerns. The blonde can feel Sheldon's situation well, which the physicist can not quite believe.
But Sheldon asks Penny about her advice and she recommends - even if it is difficult - to draw a sideline and re-orientate herself. Leonard and Howard want to know at lunch in the University of Raj what it is like to go out with two women at the same time.
