‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 9, episode 5 preview: Does Barry Kripke have an interest in Amy?

Big Bang Theory -We’ve long said that it could take some sort of serious romantic competition on “The Big Bang Theory” in order to convince Sheldon that he needs to change his ways in regards to Amy, and on next week’s new installment on CBS, this could be coming in surprising form: Barry Kripke. Sheldon’s coworker and occasional adversary is going to try and figure out if it is possible for him to start to date Amy … and we imagine that the ramifications for this are going to be severe for Sheldon if he doesn’t figure this out.

This episode is entitled “The Perspiration Implementation,” and if you want to get some further news in terms of what to expect, just take a look at the synopsis below:

“The guys take a fencing lesson from Barry Kripke and Sheldon finds himself in an awkward position when Kripke expresses interest in Amy. Also, when Stuart struggles to get female customers at the Comic Book Store, Penny, Amy and Bernadette come by to help him out.”

Do we think that Barry is actually going to work as a long-term love interest? Not really, and for a variety of different reasons. For one, we still do not know whether or not Amy is actually interested in Barry, and to go along with that, it’s also not entirely clear how hard he is going to fight for her. “Determined” is not really the word that we would use to describe this character the majority of the time.

Still, for those who like seeing a few recurring characters pop up here and there on this show, Barry’s return is something to smile about.
