The Big Bang Theory - The Separation Oscillation

Relationship problems are the common theme of the second episode of The Big Bang Theory's Ninth Season. Hoping to alleviate Penny's (Kaley Cuoco) discomfort, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) talks with the woman (Melissa Tang) he made out with during their time apart. After making a realization during that awkward conversation (mostly for the marine biologist), he finally sits down and talks honestly with wife about their mutual fears about the other leaving them for greener pastures. Although it's not the case with every relationship this week, by the end of the episode the Hofstadters appear to finally be be back in a good place.

Meanwhile, Howard (Simon Helberg) finds himself besieged from both sides as Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) is angry that she was forced to keep this secret from Penny for so long while Raj (Kunal Nayyar) is hurt that he was never told. And, in the most humorous storyline of the week, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) continues to take out his frustration over his break-up with Amy (Mayim Bialik) with an uncomfortable confrontation at his ex-girlfriend's apartment followed by a very special episode of Fun with Flags that has far more to do with the recent break-up than the history of any country's flag.
