Recap

The girls are excited to be on their way to the airport for a trip to Vegas, while the guys are eager to begin a game of Dungeons and Dragons. As the guys get ready to play, Raj admits he's happy that Lucy had to work tonight as he didn't have to have the awkward conversation where he explained he'd be spending the night playing games with his friends. Howard is going to the dungeon master this time and Sheldon is initially sceptical, though he is won over by Howard's use of impressions and sound effects.

When Raj receives a text from Lucy saying she's available tonight, he quickly kills his game character off so he can go and meet her. On their date, Lucy admits how she was nervous about seeing Raj again, and explains some of the things that scare her that she's now trying to force herself to do. Back at the apartment, Penny, Amy and Bernadette show up after Amy elbowed a TSA agent and got added to the No Fly List. Leonard invites the girls to play D&D with them. Sheldon is unsure of playing with the girls, but Dungeon Master Howard welcomes them in.

When Lucy is unhappy with her food at the restaurant, Raj suggests she talks to the waiter as it's one of the situations where she's let her fear prevent her from speaking up. After Raj calls the waiter over against her wishes, Lucy excuses herself to visit the bathroom, where she again climbs out of the window. Trapped behind the restaurant after climbing out the window, Lucy calls Raj to get her. Lucy explains to Raj how he was pushing her to do something she wasn't comfortable doing, and explains how she finds social situations scary. Raj admits he really likes her and he finds that scary.

Back at the apartment, as the game of D&D progresses, Penny suggests Sheldon and Amy's characters should have sex in the game, as it's not happening any time soon in real life. After Bernadette casts the spell and Howard reads out the outcome, Amy is uncomfortable with what they're doing and leaves the game. Sheldon knocks on his bedroom door to find out why Amy ran off. Amy explains she left because they think their relationship is a joke. Sheldon says he doesn't think their relationship is a joke, but Amy wonders whether they are ever going to have an intimate relationship. Sheldon tells her how, before they met, he never had any interest in being intimate with anyone. When Amy asks what he thinks now, he says he hasn't ruled it out. Sheldon tells Amy how, to him, what they have together is already extremely intimate, which Amy recognizes.

When Amy says they should get back out to the living room to continue the game, Sheldon decides they should play through the love spell together. Together they roll the dice to see what their characters do to each other. When Leonard comes to check on them, Amy screams for him to go away as Sheldon is nibbling on her ... 14.

I loved this episode as Sheldon really made me feel like he was truly in love with Amy when he told her their relationship was extremely intimate. He convinced me he truly loved her, but just didn't know how to tell her. I think they were made to be together as they are both brains and know how to relate with each other. A perfect match. Love the show so much!!!

Why are the writers trying so hard to push Amy and Sheldon toward sex? Their relationship is barely a relationship. They haven't kissed since last season, and the cute things they used to do for each other were far more entertaining and funny.
