You knew that Sheldon would eventually get cyber-bullied sooner or later.
Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory" saw our socially-awkward hero horrified to find his "World of Warcraft" account had been hacked. The police were called immediately, but of course they don't have jurisdiction in "WoW."
As Sheldon explained to Leonard, "What choice did I have? The mighty Sheldor, level 85 blood elf, hero of the Eastern kingdoms has been picked clean, like a carcass in the desert sun. Plus, the FBI hung up on me."
Soon, his friends swung into action to help him recover it all. Sheldon put it all into perspective: "Three thousand hours clicking on that mouse, collecting weapons and gold. It's almost as if it was a huge waste of time."
In the meantime, Penny leaned on Amy Farrah-Fowler and Bernadette as she bemoaned the fact that she transformed Leonard into great boyfriend material, only to see Priya scoop him up. Of course, the highlight of all of this was Amy being offered a drink: "Ah, here's the alcohol and drug peer pressure Mother warned me about. I was beginning to think that it would never happen. Yes, please!"
As for Priya herself, she started to grow exasperated with Leonard's determination to rescue nonexistent possessions, though Leonard may have stepped over the line by getting Raj to lie for him about his whereabouts. This won't end well.
In happier news, Sheldon got his stuff back, but it took more than a Klingon bat'leth to get it. Never underestimate the power of a Nebraskan kick to the perpetrator's groin, courtesy of Penny, who announced, "Today's the day a girl's finally going to touch you in your little special place!"
