“This is about the rivalry about a cool renegade scientist and his arch-nemesis,” said Sheldon Cooper. In the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper is talking about Tesla and Edison, but it looks like he’s also talking about himself.
Almost by accident, Sheldon Cooper invites the return of his nemesis. Sheldon comes up with an idea to improve a project that he originally worked on for the military. But, he didn’t include his two partners, Howard and Leonard.
In “The Tesla Recoil,” audiences get to see the return of Barry Kripke.
The Greatest Nemesis On Big Bang Theory
When Sheldon double-crosses his friends, they return the favor by working with his nemesis, Barry Kripke. This isn’t exactly on purpose, but neither Leonard nor Howard can do the math on their own.
“You didn’t tell me we were doing this just to stick it to Sheldon,” said Barry Kripke, as if he’s second-guessing his involvement. “I’m messing with you! This Sunday just got a cherry on top.”
In the end, however, Kripke ended up double-crossing everyone.
A Couple Of Sheep In Wolf’s Clothing
“Maybe you’re all more like the guy who didn’t invent the electric car and less like the guy who didn’t invent the light bulb,” confirmed Penny. In this cryptic message, Leonard, Howard, and Sheldon realized the truth about themselves.
Sheldon Cooper did double-cross the boys, but he did so out of science. In return, Leonard and Howard also double-crossed their friend, but they didn’t take it to the military without him.
Essentially, their methods are not always the best, but they’re done with the best of intentions. Barry Kripke, on the other hand, knew what he was doing and purposely double-crossed everyone all the same.
Regarding good and evil, Sheldon Cooper always means well, and Barry Kripke will always look out for number one. With that in mind, the rivalry between these two will likely never end.
Do you think Barry Kripke will ever try to be a good person?
