Sheldon will have to eventually warm up to sexual relations if he wants to keep Amy. He has other priorities, to be sure, but the biological need will surely kick in some day. Perhaps a Vulcan "Pon Farr" is to be decided upon, with Sheldon agreeing to copious amounts of sex every seven years for procreation purposes. Or there may be fun scenes of Sheldon confused by the physical symptoms of being horny. Once Sheldon has intercourse once, though, one would assume that the pleasurable sensations will outweigh his other concerns. Hopefully, Amy might yet make him slightly normal.
The whole thing does suck for Stuart, though, who continues to be unlucky in love. Though not a main character, enough has been shown of Stuart to earn compassion for the man. After failed dating attempts with Penny and Amy, will a hookup with Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) just before her wedding to Howard (Simon Helberg) complete his broken heart trifecta? Couldn't the writers just toss the pathetic comic shop owner a little bone here?
In "The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition" there is also a really funny story about an expansion pack to a card game pitting cowboys against wizards. Raj (Kunal Nayyar) is the first to purchase the set, but soon all the guys get into it, with Sheldon even dressing in costume to play. This is where the episode title comes from, as Sheldon brings a spittoon as a prop. Little bits like this, purely done as humorous gags but feeling completely at home and realistic within the larger episode, keep the comedy focus of The Big Bang Theory crisp and highly enjoyable.
Side note: Penny has become an alcoholic and needs help. Please let the other characters stage an intervention for her ASAP!
Watch The Big Bang Theory Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
