The Big Bang Theory carefully refrained from showing any hints of a big bang for its most popular couple, Sheldon and Amy, for months. Recently, rumors swirled that gave fans hope that this would be this season (currently its ninth) where the brilliant (in terms of knowledge) but clueless (in terms of relationships) duo consummated their love. It finally happened on Episode 11 of The Big Bang Theory, noted EW.
The writers of The Big Bang Theory managed to pack it all into one episode: Amy and Sheldon have sexual relations, Star Wars opens, and Sheldon resolves to give Amy a birthday to remember. The plot hung on the news that Amy’s birthday was the same date as Star Wars‘ opening. With most of The Big Bang Theory characters known for their love of anything and everything Star Wars, would Sheldon choose to join his male pals for the opening night or prioritize girlfriend Amy’s birthday celebration?
