In this week's episode of "The Big Bang Theory", both Amy and Sheldon will attempt to date others in a bid to move on with their lives.

Although Amy gets asked out by both Stuart and Kripke in the episode entitled "The Perspiration Implementation", she turns them down as she is hesitant to cut off all ties with Sheldon. She also gets hurt when Sheldon mentions that he has been asking out other women.

Will Amy and Sheldon ever reconcile? Showrunner Steve Molaro has been silent regarding a possible reunion between the two. But chances are the two might decide to get back together when they realise they are perfect for one another.

The fifth episode of season 9 can be watched online live via CBS All Access. "The Perspiration Implementation" can also be watched on

The synopsis reads:

As the guys decide to take up fencing, Amy and Sheldon start to consider dating other people. The girls are helping Stuart get more female interest in his business. Amy gets asked out by Stuart and Kripke, but she turns them both down.

Elsewhere in the episode, viewers will find the girls helping Stuart attract more female customers to his comic book store, and the guys take up fencing when Penny makes fun of Leonard for having an aversion to sports.

In related news, actor Simon Helberg recently said in an interview with Press Association that he wanted Howard's father to make an appearance on "The Big Bang Theory". The show introduced Howard's step brother Josh in the previous season, and fans have waiting for any mention of Howard's dad.

But it looks like viewers will have to wait a while to find out more about Mr Wolowitz.

"I think his dad is always a potential storyline at some point, though. It's nothing that we're poking at just yet," showrunner Steve Molaro said, according to Designntrend.

"The Big Bang Theory" is aired Mondays on CBS.
