Mayim Bialik Previews Role on The Big Bang Theory

by at . Comments

Forgive the obvious pun, but might love blossom for Sheldon on next week's episode of The Big Bang Theory?

Former sitcom star Mayim Bialik debuts as Amy, a character that will stick around - spoiler alert! - through next season.

"The season finale really is just a tease of things to come," Bialik told E! News. "There is an exchange between Sheldon and Amy that is enough to convince him that maybe he should pursue this. It's not complicated yet. It's a tease at the end of this episode."

Sheldon and Amy

Fans can look forward (or not, depending on your viewpoint) to a spark between Bialik's character and Sheldon.

"We meet through an online dating service," the actress says. "Raj and Wolowitz set it up. The scene has more than just me and [Jim Parsons] in it, but it's a very direct communication between us. It's very cute."

Will viewers agree? We'll soon find out.

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Penny, there's only one cookie with something in the middle that solves life's problems, and that's an Oreo. Or a Nutter Butter, if you're in a pinch.
