After an awkward meeting in Season 5, Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) gets another chance to impress his idol Stephen Hawking on tonight’s episode of “The Big Bang Theory” titled “The Extract Obliteration.”

The pair will engage in a game of Words With Friends that gets a little too competitive, threatening their newfound friendship, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But an exclusive clip on the site shows that the game might help Sheldon score some points with girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik), who gets excited about the possibility of Sheldon’s testosterone rising.

“The Big Bang Theory” airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on CTV. Full episodes are also available online at
