Sheldon And Amy Are Finally Doing 'It' On 'The Big Bang Theory'

And by "it," we mean ... you know ...

Amy and Sheldon are about to prove why they call it "The Big Bang Theory."

After years of dating, our favorite "Big Bang" couple is finally going to consummate their relationship, aka engage in coitus, aka go "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," aka "The Force Awakens," aka it's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." In other words, they're having sex.

Entertainment Weekly reports it's all going down in the show's Dec. 17 episode. The show taped the moment on Nov. 17, and the producer wanted to issue a statement on it before the news leaked.

Executive producer Steve Molaro said, “After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship, and we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes,” according to Variety.

The announcement leaves us with a lot of unknowns. Mostly, uh ... how? Amy broke Sheldon's heart in the Season 8 finale, telling him she wanted a break. Does this mean the couple is getting back together? Is this a one-time thing? And this is Sheldon Cooper, remember. Uh ... how?

In the original pilot for the show, Sheldon's character supposedly did reveal he's had sex before, and you can still find some clips online, but that script went through major changes. The Sheldon we know and love has always been pretty romantically inept. It was years before he even kissed Amy on the show. So coitus would be to go where no Sheldon Cooper has gone before.
