“The Big Bang Theory” Season 8 Episode 12 “The Space Probe Disintegration” will air on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. After almost a month of hiatus, the show returns, and the girls get the guys to go shopping! Before we get into the details, let’s backtrack a little in the last episode as it has been a month since its airing.
In “The Clean Room Infiltration” (air date: Dec. 11, 2015), Amy (Mayim Bailik) organized a Victorian-themed Christmas party that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) hated. In order to get back at her for this, Sheldon thought that he would give Amy a Christmas present, something she would not expect. Therefore, she would be ashamed by the gesture. So, together with Bernadette (Melissa Raunch), they went to the mall to buy one.
But Amy actually liked the present and even had one prepared for her boyfriend. Sheldon should be madder about this as his plan backfired, but as it turned out, he loved her gift. He also loved that he got to spend a themed party with her.
Meanwhile, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Howard (Simon Halberg) were working at the lab before the Christmas dinner at Amy’s. But they got into a fix and had to call Raj (Kunal Nayyar), who was already at Amy’s place. The lab was infiltrated by a bird, which compromised Leonard and Howard’s experiment. They got into an argument about that fact that it’s always Howard’s fault and that he tries to cover up everything. But the boys quickly realized, thanks to Penny (Kaley Cuoco), that no one has to know that they were there.
As the boys solved the jam they were in, Penny was left to talk with Raj’s dad, who was visiting town and was invited to the party. He’s going through a divorce, so together with Amy, they tried to entertain him with old Victorian games, as they waited for the guys, as well as Sheldon and Bernadette, to return.
Spoiler Alert: “The Big Bang Theory” Season 8 Episode 12 “The Space Probe Disintegration” will air on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.
In this episode, the guys will agree to go shopping with the girls, which should be fun. The girls will also involve the guys in some crafting. They have been wanting to do this for the longest time, but the concept of shopping and crafting for the guys and geeks is quite a hard sell. In the middle of their rummaging through the items, however, Leonard and Sheldon end up having a confrontation.
Meanwhile, Howard and Raj are together, and the latter tries to distract Howard from becoming anxious as he waits for the data from a space probe he had a hand in the launch. What will Howard do?
The episode is written by Billy Prady, Eric Kaplan and Jim Reynolds, with Mark Cendrowski as director.
