913 The Empathy Optimization (January 14th) in Season 9 Posted January 15, 2016 Ok that was pretty good, except the tag. My look was much like Leonard's and Howard's while watching it. Oh well. Love that they included Emily and gave her some great lines. Probably the most we've seen her in an episode. They seem to have dropped her dark side. Loved how she stood up to Sheldon. The rest of the episode was an interesting twist on the old Sheldon's even a bigger pain when he's sick. Even Amy knew to stay away. But she also teaches him that he is wrong the way way he treats people. Laughed a few times, liked the t shirts.
