Big Bang Theory Bombshell: Sheldon and Amy Are Going to [Spoiler]

Big Bang Theory Sheldon Sex Amy

A pair of Big Bang Theory characters will find their universe in a rather hot, dense state as the CBS hitcom heads into winter.

In an episode that taped this week and will air Thursday, Dec. 17, the currently estranged coupling of Sheldon and Amy (played by Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik) will do the deed — and we don’t mean solve for Pi. (They’re going to have sex.)

“After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship,” showrunner Steve Molaro said in a statement, “and we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes.”

Does this mean Sheldon and Amy will have resolved their significant differences by mid-December? Or will they merely be “pulling a Castle” and taking a “time out from their time out”? No further storyline details were available.

What do you think of this torrid twist? Are we, let alone Sheldon and Amy, possibly ready?
