“The Big Bang Theory” Season 8 Episode 8 “The Prom Equivalency” will air on Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. Bernadette and Amy will organize a prom night with the guys. How will this go? Find out what will happen to the episode in the details below. But first, let’s do a quick recap of what happened last week.
In “The Misinterpretation Agitation” (air date: Oct. 30, 2014), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bailik) argued over the former’s upcoming magazine feature of the Top 50 sexiest female scientists. Amy thought this was demeaning; Bernadette should be recognized for her work and not for her physical beauty.
Amy called up the editor to have the magazine cancel the feature, which made Bernadette furious. She accused Amy of being jealous because no one else wants her to express her sexuality. This ended in a big argument between the two that resulted in Amy storming off and leaving Bernadette at a café.
Meanwhile, Dr. Oliver Lorvis (Billy Bob Thorton) went to Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) apartment bringing her flowers. He thought that she liked him, judging by her behavior towards him at work. But when he found out the Penny was actually engaged to Leonard (Johnny Galecki), he felt sad.
Sheldon (Jim Parsons) liked Dr. Lorvis instantly and invited him to his apartment to console him about Penny and Leonard. When the boys found out that the doctor had a fascinating perk with his job as the “urologist to the stars,” they were so thrilled. They got even more excited when the doctor invited the boys to his place to see all of his geeky memorabilia, which consisted mostly of gifts from the likes of James Cameron or William Shatner.
The boys didn’t want to leave Lorvis’ apartment even as they found out he intentionally locked them up so that he could return to Penny’s place undisturbed. He intended to really win her, but found Amy to be more affectionate towards him, judging by the way she put her hand on his shoulders. Penny had to talk to Lorvis about women, flirting and stalking.
