First, good news. Tonight's episode was drama free yay!

Lenny, Howard, Amy, Raj and Claire went to a wine tasting party. They met Zack there. Sheldon and Bernie stayed at 4A for a fun evening (Bernie can't drink wine because of her pregnancy and Sheldon didn't want to go).

So cold open was the seven of them having dinner at 4A. Penny talked about this wine tasting party and asked if anyone wanted to go. Leonard asked how come being a scientist can't get these external benefits. Sheldon said he doesn't care because he went into science for internal peace/pleasure (or something like that). Amy pointed out that's not true because Sheldon still wants to get a Nobel. Sheldon said I also told you to not speak against me in front of our friends. (Amy and Sheldon had some more lines here. Sorry I can't remember. But basically it was just the usual Shamy being funny)

At the wine tasting party, Zack asked about the guys' work. They told him about their navigation system (They've done building the prototype). Zack then asked if their system would be used by the military, which got Leonard to worry. Later in the bathroom he raised his concerns with Howard and Howard said well if their invention was to be used for something bad, someone should've already come back from the future to kill them by now.

Zack then met Claire and was about to hit on her until Raj said Claire's with him. Raj told Zack about him and Claire's "casual" relationship. Later Raj accidently blurted out about the fact that he was seeing someone else at the same time in front of Claire. Claire was not satisfied with their situation.

Sheldon and Bernie's storyline was basically Sheldon being sweet. They played with model trains, studied different kinds of toasts and played D&D for the evening. Sheldon prepared a D&D game specificly for Bernie. The night turned out to be a lot of fun. Bernie thanked Sheldon because ever since she got pregnant, she became this "pregnant Bernadette" and she was able to be old herself this evening.

Tag scene was the next morning, Leonard asked Sheldon about the military thing. (First take) Sheldon gave the same answer as Howard's. (Second take I forgot sorry)

So no drama. Jokes were fine but not very funny. We didn't get to watch 9x21. They showed us 9x20 before the taping.

 

One question, have they given Bernadette a baby bump yet?

Raj was very sweet in 9x20, sensitive and funny. I don't know why the writers have to make him lovable in one eipsode and a jerk in the next one... And there was one scene where Bernie sat on the couch with that giant stuffed bear's arms around her, it was sooooooo adorable.

I don't think so. She was wearing a loose shirt in 9x20 but her usual clothes in 9x22.

Thanks for the report, camelliayao.

I think it's funny how all the drama about Zack was completely pointless. 

Oh and do not go to the TBBT wiki. Some trolls are having fun right now.

That sounds like a nice episode; I like to see Bernie and Sheldon together and it is also very IC for Sheldon being the one who doesn't treat Bernadette as the "preggy"-one...I'm curious about the D&D game, it's been a while since they played it on the show. Not so sure about the Claire and Raj stuff; I thought that Claire was in a rebound-non exclusive kind of relationship with Raj, but she was upset when Raj mentioned Emily (why Raj, why??). Could she possibly be interested in an exclusive relationship now? If I were her, I would seriously consider to date Zach, instead, it seems  the guy has improved over time, now he can even foresee evil uses for electronic devices,  LOL! Anyway, I could understand (with some difficulties, TBH) to brag with your friends about dating multiple women, but bragging about it at one's of said women' face...The guy will have a lot of troubles very soon...Both Claire and Emily are not harmless people, in my opinion!

LMAO @ our speculations regarding Zack leading nowhere. But hey, at least he's asking an interesting question about the ethical ramifications of the guys' science project and kinda throwing a wrench into the Raj/Claire situation. Good boy, Zack!

Speculations can be like that.

Just one question- Has this navigation system been discussed before ? Is it the Guidance System they decided on in the Positive Negative Reaction in the bar, and  patented it in The Application Deterioration episode ? Or is it something else that only Howard and Leonard are doing ? Does it also include Sheldon and Raj?  The patent episode had Howard-Leonard- Sheldon being a part of the guidance system.I'm confused.

But thanks for the report. The Sheldon/Bernie scenes are something I will really look forward to

Yes. It's THE navigation system that's been discussed in The Positive Negative Reaction and The Application Deterioration. How many navigation systems do we have on the show... I don't think Raj is working on it. It was L&S's paper and Howard's idea I think?

I'm sorry you're confused. My English is not good but I don't understand what confused you...

Makes sense. Also makes sense that H and L would be the ones working in the lab. Sheldon, being a theoretical physicist, his contribution was probably the math in the paper. So, S is not likely to be involved in developing the actual product. I was just confused about whether its the same project from Positive Negative and Application Deterioration or not.

Were they also working on the same thing in the lab in Solder Excursion Diversion ? Does anyone know ?

The bold part, yes that's exactly the case...I thought that was like common sense...

And I'm pretty sure it was the same project in 916, 918, 919 and 922. Why would it be a different one? Now I'm so confused...

lol yes, that is THE thing. It's a continuing subplot:

9x16: Howard comes up with an idea of a practical application for the Shelnard paper.

9x18: They apply for the patent. It was Leonard's initial idea for the paper, Sheldon's maths, Howard's idea about the practical applicability.

9x19: L and H work on the prototype. Penny and Bernie help when they visit the lab.

9x22: They discuss ethical concerns now, apparently.

There was no other. But adding to the confusion...

No they are not harmless at all I agree. Raj is digging his own grave. And the more he digs the deeper will be his fall.

The question is will his friends help him? Or will they just shrug and say: "It´s your fault, so try to find a way out for your own."

I don't think his friends are very helpful at the moment...They are tired of his bragging (and who wouldn't be) but I didn't see up to now them giving him some coherent advises on his situation (the girls behavior during the phone call with Emily some episodes ago made me cringe a little, TBH). My opinion is they'll just watch him going from bad to worse...

Yes! Thank you ! That point by point summary really helped. I'll never be confused again :icon_biggrin:

They could just switch the order, they've done that before.

They've already done the press release, promo pics etc... The order is not switched this time. So it can't be that...

It made me cringe too haha. I get that they are helping their friend BUT the girls enabling Raj's  sexist behaviour and not understanding Emily's POV was totally offensive and regressive. Amy ruining a what could have been a perfectly great Fun With Flags episode(9x15) to basically coddle Raj despite  his crappy behavior to Emily was also horrible. That episode had a potential to be this season's The Champagne Reflection(which was one of the most epic Fun With Flag episodes of TBBT), but obviously Raj ruins it.

Its like I don't even know who these people are anymore.  I would have expected them to atleast inject some teeny tiny feminist outlook into their advice to Raj and NOT stereotypically  act  so bitchy against other girls, all the, while drinking wine- jeez, how much more cliche can u get ? Lol.

Weirdly,  for some reason, the writers want us to root for Raj .BTW Claire should have totally hooked up with Zack. What a missed opportunity for her :icon_cheesygrin:.

I normally always root for Raj. Like I even wanted to ask a question at Paley if theyre ever gonna give him a playboy storyline, cause I was sick of him portraying a good looking, smart, metrosexual, sensitive,

has-a-cool-job, rich guy to be a loser, like its just not realistic!

i did not expect it though they'd play it in a way I'd be annoyed at him!
