Our favorite geeks are on to their 9th season, which started out with Penny and Leonard tying the knot. ?Fans are in for a treat as a very special guest will grace the 7th episode aptly called ?The Spock Resonance.?
For the Love of Spock
Adam Nimoy, son of Star Trek?s Leonard Nimoy, is guest starring in the upcoming episode of “The Big Bang Theory”. According to?Variety, viewers will see the younger Nimoy play himself on the November 5th episode where Adam is planning to cast Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) to appear in a documentary about his late father, a project that Adam is working on in real life. The documentary, entitled ?For The Love of Spock?, is a celebration of Star Trek?s 50th anniversary. Fellow Star Trek actor Wil Wheaton will also appear in the episode.
Although he never actually appeared on the show, Leonard Nimoy was often mentioned on the series (remember when Penny gave Sheldon that message from Leonard Nimoy written on a tissue for Christmas?) and once lent his voice to the 2012 episode entitled ?The Transporter Malfunction.??When he?passed away in February of this year, ?The Big Bang Theory??paid homage?to Mr. Spock with a portrait with the caption ?The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting.?
More heartbreak for Sheldon
Viewers will finally know what the ring Sheldon was gazing at means that was seen in last season?s finale. In the episode, Sheldon sits down in an interview with Wil Wheaton where Sheldon is seen with a box containing a miniature figurine of Wil and more importantly, Sheldon’s family heirloom ring, which he was going to give to Amy when he proposes.
Being reminded of his feelings for Amy, Sheldon suddenly decides to propose to her anyway but before he could knock on her door, he saw her kiss another man goodnight.
