  1. I agree. This may be a bit too fanfic-y but I have this idea/hope/hunch(???) that they use their friendship phase to sort out their problems and when they decide they get back together it will be a life-long commitment starting with their engagement. I would hope that in realising that this mess started with rash decisions Sheldon is giving Amy a bit of a heads up without actually asking the question, that becoming a couple again is an important decision she has to think through, that she really needs to be sure cause there's no going back. And then he actually asks her later when they spend C

  2. I don't know, I kind of feel like reconciliation with proposal might be the perfect thing here. Not only does Sheldon know a feeling when he has it (he's going to want to marry her and that's it, end of story), but with where he is now I feel like he's going to want commitment from her to be able to open up and let himself love again. Much like the RA is what gave him security before, the engagement, basically her promise to never leave him again, would be his security now.

  3. Well I'm still of the opinion that when he is given the time to think about sex is when Sheldon freaks out about it. Now whilst planning it and even having a checklist is very Sheldon, it's given him far too much time to think about it. When he kissed her on the train, he didn't give himself any time to think about it and that's probably the best route to take with them having sex, at least for him.

  4. my guess is Sheldon, after suffering all season long and seeing that kiss when he was on his way to propose, ended all hope of a reconciliation for him at that point. he has hit rock bottom and there is no where to go, ao he may as well explore the things that he never wouldve done before. he clearly said he was tired of all the "break up nonsense" and how he felt it was a large drain on his time and effort dwelling on it. in Sheldons mind at the end of 9.07 he has indeed exhausted all options, and not only has Amy "rejected" him, but she has moved on to better things. remember, sheldon bel

  5. Exactly. They just need some work first, that's all. I don't want them to rush back into this and then they end up making the same mistakes again. I want to see them work this out and then when they're together again, any issues that come up, they need to be able to talk through it like the Shamy we used to see more of.

  6. YES!! I loved Amy's change, too. I liked her since the very beginning and then I found her development very interesting. And real, too! It's quite common to see people evolve IRL. That doesn't mean that their very selves change radically. They can basically stay true to themselves and grow stronger. I know TBBT is not RL, but imitates it in a lot of ways. That's why I love the character of Amy so much (quirks and all ): she's incredibly real. That, plus we are very similar - just saying I think so, too! Okay, Penny's fav hobby is gossiping, but she's also a good friend to both Sheldon and

  7. Well that's just a speculation, same what we do here. Personally I don't think that's going to happen. There's just so many great possibilities (writing wise) for Shamy that I don't see why the writers would waste them. We were talking about this some time ago, but the writers know that they have "Shamy gold" in their hands like someone said back then, and they aren't gonna throw it away. I think we all know how powerful those big Shamy moments are, just a little kiss is enough to make the audience completely crazy. I just don't see it happening. They may drag this till the end of the season,

  8. as much as I would like to see that penny lent a hand by episode 9.09 my bet is Amy lost interest in the six month run and thought she'd revisit the friendship with Sheldon when the opportunity presented itself because she missed the fun with him. As it turned out, she had an old fashioned Shamy day and really DID miss it, like she said. Probably the most fun she had in a while, and she got caught up in it which led to the now infamous GF question from her.....not a romantic explanation, but a realistic one given the limited info we have from Amy's POV....

  9. I was just thinking about this. If the last episode indicates that we can now expect Sheldon to be more willing to feel things, and to show it to the others, then maybe he'll giving in to the physical emotions as well. And that could lead to sexual tension between Amy and him, like we were discussing earlier. It's a possibility. That's what I got from Penny's reaction, like Amy should definitely know about the ring. I really liked both of them (P/L) in last episode. Leonard was being very sweet and considering, not making sarcastic comments or trying to underrate how much pain this is causin

  10. I actually took Penny's question last night "Does Amy know about this?!" to mean she thought she SHOULD know, I didn't get the feeling she was anti-Sheldon at all. Then when he said he was fine and it was for the best Penny pushed it: "Yeah, but" spurting Sheldon's first outburst. I have not been happy with the friends' response overall, don't get me wrong, but last night I felt Penny seemed like Team Shamy. Oh, and Leonard's voice when he says "You bought her a ring?" Oh that sweet tone Johnny gets sometime, he really felt for Sheldon. I thought that whole dynamic was refreshing.

  11. I can see that. Even though I think he wants to stay feeling all this lovey dovey feelings he also doesn't want to feel those feelings with anyone other than Amy. He wants to resume those feelings with Amy now he knows he can't close them off. So he's just going out with this Vanessa girl to tied things over, say he's done it and cross it off his list and say 'well that didn't work, what's next?' Maybe that's why opts to be friends with her. He doesn't want to get hurt by being romanticly involved but he can still have those feelings by keeping her close. In a way, without sharing 'I love you

  12. im thinking no. for instance, the RA had its place in the beginning but as the relationship grew it became stifling and limiting. Sheldon has to suspend the parameters of it to enjoy hia fort sleep over. and now that the break up occurred i doubt Sheldon has much faith in the old ways anymore, which would be a good thing if true....im betting once the reconciliation occurs we will be pleasantly surprised by a change in how the couple behaves, to include how they plan things together

  14. I really don't see how they could have a proposal before a reconciliation or even as part of the reconciliation. They have issues they need to be worked out first and they need to re-establish what they had. The reconciliation needs to be first and then after a period of time, the proposal.

  15. Sometimes this is just so frustrating. I would prefer them back back together already, even though I like this character development. My feelings just go up and down with this. One day I'm completely fine with this story arc, I even find it fascinating, but then the next day I feel so hopeless and frustrated that I just want to yell at the writers FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOULD YOU PLEASE JUST FIX THIS ALREADY, I DON'T CARE HOW JUST FIX THIS!

  16. Nope. I've been thinking the same thing. I also find it interesting that nobody wanted to go to the aquarium thingy with him. Out of everybody in their group (including Amy, who he doesn't really associate with anymore) it's Amy he ends up going with.

  17. hi - im a newbie but been occasionally lurking since season 7...! the way i hope the reconciliation goes ahead is that Amy and Sheldon finally talk - with Amy asking again to be his girlfriend. Sheldon yet again rejects her, this time with the words "im sorry. i dont want you to be my girlfriend.......................... i want you to be my WIFE" if this happens i think i would pass out

  21. If he needs to get engaged to feel safe that she'll never leave him then I'd say he still needs a little work before proposing to her. But definitely if while during the short time they're in the friend zone (assuming it won't be too long), Shamy are able to work on themselves and get through their issues, get on the same page and both seem like they're in the right place to go straight from friends to engaged? I say bring it on! Haha.

  25. It's just fan speculation, according to their preferences in the show. No need to worry about it. I mean, I can speculate they're back together and married in this season finale, but what makes my opinion better than that of another fan, other than the fact that maybe a Shamy like me would like it? Fans opinion shouldn't scare us, it's the writers we should be scared of!! LOL

  26. I would have thought that they would want to continue Sheldon's journey of growth. If they keep them apart until the end, wouldn't that put an end to that? And wouldn't it make more sense for that journey to continue through reconciliation, dealing with engagement, than the stress of wedding preparations, then adjusting to married life etc etc?

  29. If last night's episode means we'll start to see a Sheldon who is more open about his feelings to everyone around him and he'll even start to be more considerate of others (which we see of him towards Amy in the last taped episode), then things will definitely be looking up from here ETA: and who's to say that him being open emotionally won't spill over to his physical body's feelings? What his body feels, he will need to take care of. Just let it go, Sheldon. Amy will be glad when you do ;-ppppp LOL!

  30. I don't remember hearing the Why, but I can't tell you how much I would LOVE that reasoning. I could see Penny wanting to do it for that reason, but not being able to tell Bernie the real reason, so pretending to be "just curious."

  31. interesting post! I go back and forth on what you've stated. Like you, I did really enjoy season 4 as we hot to know Amy. She started out as the female equivalent of Sheldon, and it was amusing to see someone in his camp even when he was being his quirky, socially inept self. He had a comrade, and he liked it. We liked it too. But out I also really like the change in direction for her character. We learn that yes, she shares some of Sheldon's social awkwardness and is a huge nerd, BUT unlike Sheldon she embraces the thought of being someone's idea of a bad girl and finds it "oddly titillating"

  33. I think what needs to be addressed with this are these spur-of-the-moment decisions. If the relationship can fall apart from one day to the next and then 6 months later Amy is asking Sheldon to get back together just like that there's a lot of uncertainty. That isn't to say that I blame Amy - Sheldon has made similarly rash decisions in the past (the table thing, the train trip) that probably contributed to her wanting a break in the first place. So personally I would see an engagement as a mutual promise that this won't happen again. Yeah, I think it's actually from Comic Con. Old news, bu

  34. Remember Leonard tends to use his bad childhood to get Penny to feel sorry for him in Season 6 I think she had sex with him every time he brought it up usually to get out of something he didn't want to do so Leonard manipulated her and I think she remembers that doesn't mean that she not in love with him she is but Penny knows how he operates now just my opinion

  35. that sounds good...I think the key is that they both express their regrets. We haven't seen that from Amy yet, just the rash out of the blue "can I be your gf again" proposal, yuck....Sheldon's gonna need to hear regret or he will never trust the reconciliation. And I'm sure Amy is still waiting and wanting to hear the same from Sheldon, so that she can feel confident that she will finally get what she wants out of the relationship, a committed and respectful companion...

  36. I don't think any of it has been wasted. I love the thinking and emotions that the characters are going through, even if it means they're not hanging out together in every episode. The writers have still been able to explore science issues, the girls have still had times together. I like the character exploration that's gone on, rather than the same ol'-same ol'. There's still plenty of time, IMO, for the writers to explore Shamy togetherness after they reconcile. And maybe the writers don't want to mess with showing Amy teaching Sheldon how to drive, for instance. That subject has alrea

  38. I would like to see Shamy planning their wedding, I think that would be hilarious. Amy as a bride, enough said right? But yeah, they could use a time jump. They could have a big wedding since both Howardette and Lenny's wedding were very simple and small.

  39. I just wish that this season's cliffhanger would be either something other than Shamy or a little more positive than it has been for the past finales. But knowing the writers like dramatic cliffhangers, I really don't know what to expect. I just don't want to spend another summer worrying about Shamy. If it were to be the proposal, then I hope that the reconciliation happens before that.

  41. Well if they just wanted to see the guy they could have gone into .. I presume the date is at a restaurant .. and peeked at him but they disguise Bernadette (from what I can work out) and send her to spy. Presumably cus she's the smallest and hardest to spot lol! Which suggests that they are interested in what is happening during the date and not just being nosey about this guys face. Trying to see how serious Amy is about this guy maybe?

  45. I think he's simply attempting to continue with the moving on idea that they guys had suggested to him in the fencing episode, now that he's seen that she's apparently moving on. I don't think he's trying to specifically replace Amy or that it has to do with the kinds of games he has played with Amy. I think it's just a way for him to try to measure the worthiness of whatever girl might come along. Instead of measuring girls by their looks or some romantic ideal, he measures them by their ability to solve the puzzle or whatever. I think he's trying to take the advice to move on, but not becau

  47. From a surprisingly insightful review from The AV Club, taken from where P/L see the ring... Penny and Leonard are taken aback, having no idea that he was ready to propose or that he was even considering it. Sheldon shrugs it off as if he’s past it but then spends the rest of the episode dwelling on Amy. Sheldon’s reaction isn’t exactly unpredictable, but it is nice to see the show finally start to dig into his real feelings about Amy. Watching him deal with the breakup by being childish was funny enough for the first few episodes of the season, but at some point The Big Bang Theory had to do
