Ceux qui ont vu l'épisode de cette semaine l'ont découvert par eux-mêmes. Pour les autres, sachez que le dernier épisode de TBBT était rempli de référence à Btvs :

6.21 The Closure Alternative
In this week's episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon and Amy deal with his need for closure, Penny tries to get excited about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Raj tries to butch it up. In other words, this is an episode about people trying to change something deeply ingrained into who they are and failing absolutely spectacularly.
First we have Sheldon, who finds out that Alphas has been canceled, and what's more, it ended on a cliffhanger. We've all been there, I'm sure, but the problem is worse for Sheldon who can't even stand to not complete his door-knocking, much less not know what happens after the disastrous scenario in which Alphas ended. (And can I just say... obscure!)
Amy decides to try to help him out by conditioning him to accept life without resolution and hands up, who here over-related to him just not being able to handle it? Particularly at the end, when he gets his closure and all but passes out with relief. My hand is in the air and I'm guessing a few of yours are as well.
Meanwhile, Raj decides to butch it up after stalking his girlfriend online and finding that she had referred to him as feminine. His solution to this seems to involve wearing a hockey jersey and serving frozen burritos for dinner, and I laughed a truly ridiculous amount because I completely believe that that is what Raj thinks masculinity comprises. Naturally, it also fails, but luckily she doesn't mind his lack of traditional masculinity, and in fact it's one of the things she really likes about him. I think I'm slowly coming around to liking her.
Elsewhere, Leonard shows up at Penny's apartment at six in the morning trying to get her to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and...well, we've all been there, am I right? And I have to tell you, I was a little surprised that Penny didn't love it because if there were anything in the geeky world I'd have guessed she could get into, it would be Buffy. It's a show about a girl who kicks ass while trying to have a dating life and quipping, "If the apocalypse comes, beep me." I mean, come on, what's not to love about that, regardless of geek status?
Sadly, Penny is unable to get into it. Although to be fair, it's less the show's fault and more Penny realizing that she's not passionate about anything. She and Bernadette talk it over and Penny realizes that her passion is her life and the people in it. It's a little sappy but after all Leonard and Penny have been through and how far back she's stood from their relationship, it's nice to see her being the invested one for a change. Now if only I could reach through the screen and chastise Leonard for starting her with season one. Bad idea! Everyone knows you entice a newbie with the musical and then start them at the beginning! (I kid, I kid...mostly.)
So Sheldon doesn't overcome his need for closure, Raj doesn't succeed in his plan to be hyper-masculine, and Leonard fails in getting Penny into Buffy. And that's fine, because we love Sheldon's inability to leave things unfinished, and Raj's passion for skincare, and even Penny's dispassionate voice of reason. This is definitely one of the funnier (not to mention geekier) episodes of the season and I really enjoyed it.

- Now, these kids are not destined. In fact, loving each other was a byproduct of their destinies in the sense of their destinies brought them together, but them loving each other actually pushed against their destinies. Their destiny is the mission. Their love distracts from that. The mission wins out. This is their great tragedy. ~ anythingbutgrey, about Cangel
