The Tangible Affection Proof - S6-E16

Question: Why did they get rid of Alex after this episode?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Plot-wise, there was no reason given for her exit. She was a minor character, not a regular, and writers often write them out of a series without an explanation. The actress, Margo Harshman, did go on to work in a web series the next season and, following that, had a more substantial role on NCIS.

The Closet Reconfiguration - S6-E19

Question: Assuming I've got the right episode, when Howard took Sheldon home, why didn't he just tell Sheldon not to tell anyone what was in the letter? If he had, Sheldon would have told the girls that Howard told him not to say.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Sheldon is extremely bad at keeping a secret. He actually doesn't want to keep a secret and tries to find or create a justification to tell it so the pressure will be off him.
