Spoiler Alert! This post recaps portions of season 7, episode 17 “The Friendship Turbulence”.

Sheldon and Howard have always had a rocky relationship. Sheldon insults Howard and Howard pranks Sheldon, however, on this episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Bernadette thinks it’s time for these two to put aside their differences.

After having a talk with Howard, Bernadette convinces her husband that it’s finally time to make peace with Sheldon. Taking her advice Howard goes to Sheldon and apologizes for all of his past pranks. Surprisingly, Sheldon apologizes for all the times he has insulted Howard, followed in typical Sheldon-style by an insult. After the apologies Howard invites Sheldon to go to Houston, TX to visit the space station for a presentation he has to give. Sheldon accepts the invitation and the two of them go to Houston.

On the flight Sheldon is as annoying as he usually is, and it looks like this new beginning is about to end. Suddenly turbulence strikes and the two of them bond over fear. Will Sheldon and Howard become better friends? We’ll find out in the upcoming episodes.
