    Ok I'm gong to type up a quick repost.. I's tired af and I didn't take notes so it will be brief. I will add dialog but it wont be accurate to the actual taping as there were lots of re-writes. The report below is just a guide on what was taped tonight. As always. DO NOT TWEET OR POST TO PRODUCERS ABOUT SPOILERS. So we know Amy has gone off to Princeton for a few months... Cold Open: Sheldon is sitting in 4B skyping with Amy. They are expressing how much they miss one another. Amy comments that its weird that Sheldon wasn't there that morning to correct her grammar. Sheldon took the opportunity to start correcting her and this turned into some flirtatious back and forth. Cafeteria: Leonard, Raj and Howard are sitting chatting when Sheldon enters followed by Ramona. Sheldon introduces Ramona to the gang. He explained that she had worked on the CERN project and she was at Caltech for some research. The guys offer Romana to join them and Raj leaves to grab an extra chair. I cant remember why exactly but Ramona deny's the offer and leaves to sit elsewhere asking Sheldon to accompany her which he complies. We see Sheldon and Ramona sitting and chatting while the guys are observing and discussing what might be happening. Ramon reached out to touch Sheldon on the arm at one occasion. They were pretty certain from this point that she was after him. 4A Penny and Bernadette are at the island speaking about Sheldon and Ramona, The guys had told them what was going on. They were voicing concerns about what Romana might be up to. It was mentioned that Ramona had got Sheldon a Toblerone. Penny commented that all Leonard had told her was that the Toblerone had nuts. 4B Sheldon and Amy are again skyping and expressing that they miss each other, They go on to talk about their days. Sheldon openly tells Amy about Ramona and how they had lunch. Amy is visibly not impressed immediately and expresses she is not happy. Sheldon is completely oblivious to why this is a problem and goes on to explain Ramona's research and how she is a tall, blond and ex swimmer. 4A Amy skype Penny and Bernadette, she is furious with Ramona being in the picture and expresses her anger at them saying "I asked you to do one thing and keep and etc on him". Penny and Bernadette are sorry to Amy. ComicBook Store: Leonard, Howard and Raj are searching for comics and discussing the issue with Ramona, Raj suggest someone should ask out Ramona in an attempt to prove she is not interested in Sheldon romantically. Stuart enters the conversation and offers to do it. The guys immediately shoot Stuart down (in a funny way) explaining she is a doctor. Stuart replies saying doctors love him. There was some jokes thrown around here before Raj says he will do it. Cafeteria: Ramona is sitting alone, Raj enters and starts talking to Ramona, "So nice to see you again', Yes you to!, May I join you? Ramona replies a subtle 'No" and got back to her work while eating. Raj leaves to join Howard and Leonard. They comment on how they need to phone the guiness book of world records for the quickest shoot down ever. Sheldon enters and Ramona instantly waves him down for Sheldon to join her, To which he does. 4A Leonard, Penny, Howard, Bernadette and Raj are at the Island preparing dinner and talking about Ramona advancing Sheldon. They cant decide if they should phone Amy and warn her or if they are overreacting. As they leave the island with their food to go and sit down, Sheldon enters the apartment with Ramona. The gang stops in their tracks as Sheldon re-introduces her to the gang and mentions how they have been swimming together, The gang awkwardly say hi to her. Ramona comments on how proud she was of sheldon for putting his face underwater. They all sit down and Ramona takes her place next to Shleond where Amy would normally be. Bernadette is the last to join the group and she decided to squeeze herself inbetween Ramona and Sheldon trying to separate them, (break) Penny asks Sheldon if he has spoken to Amy that day, He replied 'Yes this morning, And I assume we will before bed tonight". Ramona comments: "He talks about Amy all the time, I cant wait to meet her" And Sheldon responds with 'Yes, She keeps asking how long Amy is away for". Obviously there are alarm bells ringing everywhere. Sheldon comment on how Ramona has been working on the CERN project. Ramona continues to say she had a front row seat for it all. Sheldon offers to go get some correspondence that he has with someone that headed the CERN project and if Ramona would like to see them. Obviously she does and Sheldon stands and leave for his own apartment, to which Ramona offered to accompany him. Sheldon being oblivious to her advances comments "oh fun! just like a play date". The gang are visibly concerned about what was happening. Penny comments about "This is the sort of thing we should be keeping an eye on!!' They all argue about who is going to go over there to keep an eye on things. Eventually the argument turns into 'Who is going to call Amy?' 4B Sheldon and Ramona are talking in 4B when Sheldon's laptop starts to ring. He excitingly answers to find Amy on the other end. She said she just missed him and wanted to call him. He commented on the perfecting timing as he called as Ramona was there. Amy was NOT impressed by this. Sheldon went on to say how they had been swimming together. He turned the laptop to Ramona so she could say hello to Amy. Just as this happens, Amy's phone get a call form Leonard warning her of Ramona. Sheldon is not impressed with Leonard calling Amy at such a late hour and is still completely oblivious to how inappropriate Ramona being around him is. 4A The gang are once again discussing the situation. Raj is sure they are overreacting as someone like Ramona couldn't be pursing Sheldon Cooper. Sheldon and Ramona enter the apartment and Sheldon is apologetic about having to break up the part as Amy has told him he is tired and needs to go to bed. Ramona thanks everyone for Dinner and asks Sheldon to walk her to her car. Penny jumps up at this and offers the whole gang to walk her down to her car. We get a scene with the whole gang awkwardly escorting Ramona down the steps to her car, no one is talking at all, Bernadette and penny make efforts to put themselves between Sheldon and Ramona. Ramona pulls away in her car with the gang watching. Penny tells Sheldon 'we need to talk". 4B Penny and Sheldon on the couch - Penny is trying to explain to Sheldon about Ramona. He is in denial of her trying to pursue him romantically. He finds it impossible to happen because he is in a relationship with Amy. Penny explains that some girls don't care about that.. Sheldon is still no understanding the situation and suggest penny and Leonard need marriage counseling. Penny goes on to try and explain in another way with whats happening. She explains that he is a limited addition toy that not everyone can have but some people will try and get it anyway. Sheldon responds with "Well that maybe true But Amy has already taken me out of the package and played with me"... Sheldon is still not understanding the situation and leaves for bed. Sheldon's Office Sheldon is sitting at his desk working when Ramona enters. She asks him if she has had any lunch and he say's no he hasn't. She replies "Good because I made us sandwiches" Sheldon is happy at the gesture but then something snaps in his head. He confronts Ramona head on asking is she is hoping for some kind of romantic relationship with him. "what if I were?" she replies. Sheldon goes on to list that would pose a number of problems because they work together and more importantly, He is with Amy. As he finishes his sentence.. Roman leans in quickly and plants one on Sheldon's lips. Sheldon doesn't kiss her back. He just sits there Eyes open from shock. When it ended he is visibly emotionally compromised from what just happened. He just had a look of shock on his face. He stood up from his desk and said "excuse me" and left. He left the university, Straight into a cab, Straight to the Airport, Seen buying a plane ticket, Sitting on a plane (Watching sponge bob). Arriving in NJ, Going to Princeton, In the hallway looking for Amy's apartment. Amy was on her couch in her robe. From the door came a familiar knock of 3 for Sheldon. Amy looked shocked that he was there and rushed fro the door. As she opened the door, We see Sheldon down on 1 knee holding a ring. He was looking up at her with a serious look on his face. "Will you marry me" Amy just stood there in shock. The scene faded out before Amy could answer. END SEASON 10. wow.

    As promised.. A report for 10x23. Shamy heavy. OK some details on 10x23..... Shamy were incredibly cute in this episode. It really marks how much they have grown to rely on one another, especially Sheldon. Amy has the offer for a 3 month placement at Princeton. She is incredibly excited about it but also incredibly nervous to approach Sheldon about the subject. She talks about it with the girls and and urge her to go for it, Its an opportunity she cant refuse. Amy is obviously concerned about leaving Sheldon on his own. Long story short, The guys have finished phase 1 of their military project and they are excited to start the second phase. They arrive at the university in high spirits to get started only find their lab had completely been emptied. The guys are pretty upset to find the military are responsible for this. The military had decided to take the project into their own hands and the guys were no longer needed. Sheldon, Howard and Leonard are heading back up to the apartment in low spirits, The enter the apartment to find it completely empty, Nothing there at all. Exactly the same situation as walking into their lab. They are all visibly confused and re-visting the earlier trauma before they realise they are still on the third floor and walked into he wrong apartment by mistake. They cautiously enter 4A and are relived to see the familiar surroundings and the rest of the gang there. They join their respected wives (and raj). Everyone tried to comfort the guys after losing their project but they insist on changing the subject. Penny pointed out that Amy had some news to which the attention points to her. As Sheldon is upset she doesn't want to break the Princeton news to him just yet and shifts focus on Raj's news on him moving out of 4A and moving in with Bert as his roommate. The girls are walking in the park with Bernadette pushing Hally in her push chair. They are urging Amy to go to Princeton and how she cant miss this opportunity, Sheldon will be fine. Bernadette expresses her concern for Howard as he has become incredibly needy and clingy since losing the military project. After some more dialog with Amy, Howard is seen to run over and join the girls. He greets Bernadette with hugs and kisses reinforcing Bernadette's earlier concerns about his behavior. We cut to 4B. Its the next day and Amy is cooking oatmeal for Sheldon. She is hoping to cheer him up with food he likes to approach the subject of Princeton to him. Sheldon enters and he is still pretty down about the project, He apologizes that his bowel movements have not been to schedule. Amy comforts him and serves him up his oatmeal just as he likes it, Plain. She advises Sheldon he should take this opportunity to shift focus onto another project. Sheldon seems to light up at this idea and suggest they start working more on their joint research. Amy knowing this would be near impossible if she was leave shoots down the idea quickly stating that if they proved the theory, They are still paying $3 for a loaf of bread at the end of it anyway so whats the rush. Sheldon immediately becomes suspicious she Amy rejects the notion of spending more time together and feeding him his favorite oatmeal. He confronts her and asks her whats going on. Amy finally spills that she has an opportunity to go to Princeton on a research project for 3-4 months. Sheldon immediately tells her she must go but he is visibly troubled by her leaving. He is trying to support the idea but he snaps and storms off to the bedroom. He is totally not ok with it. Howard and Bernadette are at home and Hoard is continuing to be needy and clingy. Bernadette decides it time they have a talk about his behavior. This is a very cute scene as Howard acknowledges his behavior but completely turns it around to prove to Bernadette does exactly the same thins when she loses work project. One example is that it lead to them having Hally. Bernadette is apologetic and immediately gives into Howards neediness. The roll onto the bed kissing. Next, We see Leonard assisting Raj with moving his boxed downstairs. As they approach the 3rd floor they can here someone playing harmonic from within 3A. They both enter to see Sheldon sitting alone of the floor playing the harmonica. He is incredibly sad and expresses that everyone and everything is leaving him. He lost his project, he is losing his girlfriend.. He is sad and alone. Raj suggest with him now gone, Sheldon could move back into his old room so Sheldon doesn't have to be alone. Leonard asks to speak to Raj out in the hallway for a moment and instead shuts the door behind Raj so he was out of the room. Leonard sits next to Sheldon to offer him advice on what to do with Amy. He tells him that he is not losing her and that Amy will only be gone a few months and he needs to show her how much of a supportive boyfriend he can be. 4B and amy is sitting on the couch on her computer. Sheldon enters holding a suitcase as a gift he got for Amy. He tells her this is an opportunity she cant refuse and as a supportive boyfriend he wants her to go, He got her this case that has been tested to survive a plane crash, So maybe Amy should trade inside the case. Amy stands up and is taken aback by his gesture. She walks towards him and asks him if he is really sure about this and he says. "Sheldon!" Amy says in inviting tone while wrapping her arms around him and planting a kiss on him. They kiss (very much like the Harry potter robe kiss) in one another arms until Sheldon breaks off and says, "I know its not your birthday, but we could continue this with intimate love making: (Disclaimer, This is not the actual line, and I for the love of me cant remember what he actually said, so this is just a guide to what happened in this scene, But y'all will die okay?). Amy agrees to coitus but only if Sheldon is sure to which he is. They continue kissing and Sheldon pulls back quickly to reinforce something. "Just know, This coitus is in no way a ploy to get you to stay" Its a very tender scene and the delivery is very sweet. Amy smiles at Sheldon and acknowledges that she understands. Sheldon goes onto say because when she is at princeton, He cant give her this, And he cant give her his goods via Skype. Amy smiles mischievously. Sheldon says "so lets go to the bedroom, Take off our cloths, fold them neatly and make passionate love". (Again not actual words but very close". He takes her hand and leads Amy to the bedroom, while they are making their way there, Amy says in caught a naught tone, "How about we take off our cloths, DONT fold them up neatly and then make passionate love" Still hand in hand they stop at the door ways and Sheldon responds in a very Sexual way, "or how about we Do fold up our clothes" Hand and hand they walk into the bedroom. Next scene is Raj in the hallway saying goodbye to Penny and Leonard at the door. They get interrupted when Sheldon shouts from 4B Bedroom " Oh Amy you naughty Vixen". The guys seem disturbed with what was going on next door, Someone suggested going in there to see what was happening but after amy shouts out something like "Oh Sheldon, that is a great method to cause forward stimulation" (Again I cant remember what exactly it was but it was something science-y turned sexy". The guys just all look on with a "nope" look on their faces.. It ends with Sheldon shouting WOOHOOOO. 4B and Amy is ready to leave. Sheldon is upset but he's trying to be supportive. He walks her down to the car telling her to call him as soon as she gets to the airport, "I Will" And to the gate? "I will", And when you arrive in New Jersey? "I Will".. The last line was Sheldon.. "And if you meet another scientist as smart as me and as tall as me, I want you to step away from him and call me immediately" End, Guys a very very cute episode. Absolutely brilliant! Sorry I cant remember all he science - y stuff and word for word. But omg Shamy heavy confirmed. As always, happy to answer questions!. - Kaz

    I finally watched it and.... What. a. season. Besides the fact that it's the first year since S5 (S5!!!!) that I get to the end of the season 100% satisfied throughout (S8 came close but then... *shakes fist*), I feel such a big relief having one entire season unbesmirched and, more importantly, with Sheldon and Amy being so consistently in-sync throughout. I really enjoyed the episode (although of course it doesn't compare to my other favorites of the season) and I'm not concerned about the future. Molaro's interview makes me feel good (for a change) and just confirmed further that 1) they 100% made sure to make it clear Sheldon has no interest in Ramona, nor in cheating - that was never something they intended to play with and that 2) from everyone's reactions to the scene (here comes the 2017 edition of "Steve Molaro cries during a scene") this is it. Why would everyone get so emotional if this wasn't an actual, meaningful proposal? I doubt there's going to be massive drama coming from this, let alone multiple proposals. I think they will clear the air about Ramona in the premiere and they will probably have a touching scene at the end where Amy will accept. I actually think that the way they set up the whole thing, and the cliffhanger at the end, made sense from a technical and narrative POV. We might have preferred a different trigger to get Sheldon to propose, like maybe not having Ramona back but him just missing Amy and realizing he was ready to take that step because of that would have worked just great from our POV. But they have to write a comedy, it's a season finale, and they have to shock the audience and I honestly think it worked really well in that sense. Everyone was so focused on Ramona and whether or not Sheldon might cheat that I don't think anybody (in the general audience) thought a proposal was coming. It was sweet, it was romantic, it was shocking, but it wasn't cheesy or over the top. it was simple and to the point. And Sheldon is so calm and determined that there's no doubt in my mind his intentions come from a good place. From what I read on Twitter this morning, it's been received very well. And I've never heard the studio audience scream so hard in 10 seasons! I also think that had they had Amy say yes right away, and the kiss/hug whatever had come after, the scene wouldn't have had nearly the same impact from a visual/shock perspective, nor made much sense from Amy's POV. After all, Sheldon's just shown up out of the blue to propose when he's meant to be on the other side of the country, that it's just natural that Amy's first reaction would have been to be shocked and maybe confused. I think it would have been far weirder had she jumped up and said yes. This worked. It makes sense that they wouldn't know how exactly Amy will react and what her response will be because there's so many options to go with. But I'm fairly confident it won't be drama. Or they wouldn't have had Sheldon be completely clueless, innocent, and well intentioned about it. From a production POV too... an engagement between Shamy isn't a risk for the show. The biggest risk to the status quo of the show was changing the living arrangements, and that's all done and dusted successfully. An engagement will change nothing in terms of how the show is written and made. So there's really no reason why they might want to re-hash breakup-like drama over THIS, when the show is winding down to its end and Shamy have literally cleared every single issue they've ever had this season. I think the only real criticism I have for this episode is that I feel everyone overreacted far too quickly at the very start. I mean, a part of me wonders if that was the writers' tongue-in-cheek way of parodying the way things escalate quickly in the fandom. But I felt like they could have had a better buildup than one single lunch before the gang (and Amy) start panicking/getting crossed. They could have had a montage or a little time-jump to justify the worries. I felt like their concerns were far more organic later on, after Ramona turned down Raj, and took Sheldon swimming and showed up for dinner obviously intent on getting him alone. But, at the beginning of the episode, all that panic seemed a bit excessive. The gang was absolutely on fire though, and that staircase scene might be one of the funniest scenes they have ever shot. I don't know how they will pick up in 11x01 (although I think a classic Amy panic attack could definitely be in the cards), but, again, I am pretty sure it will all be fine by the end of the episode at the latest. Again, if they had wanted to toy with more drama, they would have made it much more ambiguous that Sheldon might have been into Ramona, and they would have had him run to Amy in a panic, not in that calm, determined and relaxed way he did. And... hey, for the first time in years, I get to have a happy hiatus!

    Right, just finished watching, and here are my Very Important Thoughts. Okay, I was, to put it mildly, unimpressed by the premise of this episode. I thought the Ramona, now with Bunny Boiler! action proposal trigger was dumb, low-key sexist and tooth-grindingly hackneyed. I didn't like that the show treated Sheldon as property to be guarded, or a child to be protected. I didn't like Amy's 'I GAVE YOU ONE JOB!' line. And I , like @mirs1, disliked that the Shamy proposal would carry the whiff of assault/exploitation/whatever. And.....I haven't changed my mind about any of those things. But goddammit if the writing and acting didn't sell the shit out of it. Incidentally, is it me or has the cast been given wheatgrass shots and cleansing retreats this season? Even when the writing flounders, their energy and chemistry has tended to bring the gags home. In a way that I don't think was happening with the limp back halves of seasons past. I mean, even when I'm wincing at Amy's ketchup bottle line, or the gag about Sheldon running out into traffic, I can't hold back the guilty giggle. Because Rauch, Bialik and Cuoco are killing it. I don't know how Bialik manages to have chemistry with the rest of the cast on Skype, but I am very, very grateful. So yes, even as I roll my eyes at the idea that the gang is supposed to keep Sheldon on some sort of leash, I melted at Penny's exhausted 'Don't look at me like that, I tried' to the PAmy portrait. I am a whore for PAmy. What can I say. And even when I think 'Jesus, guys, calm the fuck down' at the gang's overreaction at Sheldon and Ramona's lunch, their furious yelping kaffeeklatsches are delivered with such charm and conviction that I am 'awww'ing as I am laughing. By the way, I am with @koops when she wonders whether the writers were pulling shippers' legs with those sequences - affectionately, of course. 'OH MY GOD HE MADE HER LAUGH!' 'OH MY GOD SHE TOUCHED HIS HAND WHAT COULD IT MEEEEEEEAAAAAANNNNNN?' And then the gang has dinner. And look, I knew I would be charmed by the gang's attempts to keep Sheldon and Ramona separate, but I didn't know just how much. Rauch spreading her legs as she wriggles between Sheldon and Ramona so that she can drive a bigger wedge between them than her tiny body would otherwise allow? The gang's tense, watchful body language throughout? And then quite possibly the funniest scene the show has pulled off in a long, long while? Sheldon walking Ramona down, Penny's manic 'WE'LL ALL GO!'* and then the gang's oh-so-subtle wriggling between Sheldon and Ramona, one by one? Not since Sheldon played basketball with Bawwy have I laughed quite so much. This is the show's forte - fresh and glorious physical comedy - and oh my God did it deliver. I don't know, maybe the answer is simple. Yes, the gang was overreacting and behaving like paranoid - and possessive - mother hens. But it so obviously came from a place of love. And I melt when the gang is clearly affectionate and supportive. And - as someone who's given Leonard plenty of shit this season - can I just say I found his Toblerone obsession utterly charming? Even Raj's romantic sadsackery was imbued with freshness and life. I cackled at the self-awareness of his 'I haven't played the race card yet'. And I loved that the writers managed to put a little bit of a spin on Sheldon's 'amusing factoids' by having him incorporate internet-listicle terminology like 'the answer will shock you!' in his skype-chat with Amy. 'New Jersey's state bird or murder rate? Both are shocking.' And look, others have talked about the grammar flirting, so all I can say is this: Sheldon knoweth not how else to admonish but vigorously.

    I had to take a 24-hour cooling down period before writing down my thoughts on the episode because otherwise there would have been nothing but an incoherent sequence of "awwww" and pterodactyl noises. Not necessarily in that order. I mean, I knew all along I would love the episode, but as always the things that often stand out to me, going into an episode spoiled, are the little things we didn't know about from the taping which take me by surprise. That entire conversation at breakfast was amazing, and you can tell the seeds of the proposal are being planted right there already. That's all Sheldon's essentially saying to her, that his life has become so interwoven with hers (and he loves it) he can't imagine himself without her. It's not about the things she can do for him, or where she can drive him to, or any of that. It's about how kind she is, and how she gets him, and how just her presence is comforting to him. And he's saying all that BEFORE finding out she's been offered the position, so there's no manipulative intent involved there. It's all coming right from a place of love and affection. And what was wonderful when he finds out about it is (and this is something that's totally incongruent with what Sheldon said Leonard told him - which is rich coming from someone who just last episode was whining because his wife *might* work with an ex) is that his immediate reaction wasn't to stomp his feet and forbid her from going. It was to clamp down his own emotions and tell her she should take it. If that's not loving and supporting, I don't know what is. Frankly, some of the advice from Penny too reminded me of how nobody really understands Sheldon and Amy BUT Sheldon and Amy. And the other thing that I didn't notice until I saw gifs later on, was the way Sheldon's face changes into a big smile in the last scene, when Amy tells him that she will love him no matter what. And his overprotectiveness in insisting she texts and calls him all the time. Again, that's not the kind of neediness he had with Leonard, it's about being with her and missing her as a person. Oh, and I can't believe I nearly forgot when he tells her "I'm proud of you, and support you in everything you do". I mean, can this episode scream "relationship goals" any louder? I don't think I have to say anything about the end of the once-a-year deal, because I'm sure there's been lots of discussion about that already (and I'll catch up with it shortly). And there's not much I could say about it that I didn't already when the report came out, given how we knew every little detail about it. Hehe. But I just love the ease and how well tuned with one another they are these days. It's nice that sex can now come from a place of emotional need instead of a deadline. At the cost of sounding like a broken record, I don't care how often they do (or don't) do it, but there was just something off with that deadline. I also LOVED that when Sheldon says that thing about warning her that if she wants to "hit some of that" and she's 3000 miles away he can't skype it to her, she's all "that's a risk I'm willing to take". Once again, loud for those in the back, Amy's not necessarily that much more sexually driven than Sheldon and that's why their sex life works for them. I think they've now hit a nice, comfortable, healthy balance for them and I never felt like they're as ready to conquer the world together as they are right now. It's a great place to be as the show winds down to its end. (Also, if this is Alex Ayers idea of an episode - given her writing credits - PLEASE WRITE MORE. And thank you.)

    I loved the proposal. No apologies.... I see Season 11 opening with rest of the gang in Pasadena freaking out because Sheldon has gone missing. They are worried about tellling Amy, in case he left with Ramona. And there's the big comedic misunderstanding, with the gang going crazy while Shamy are snuggled up together in their New Jersey love nest.

    Ramona kisses Sheldon, which prompts him to get on a plane to Princeton. He drops to one knee and proposes. Amy is shocked. It's a cliffhanger, so we don't have a yes or no.

    Seeing Sheldon watching Spongebob on the plane was all I needed to see just how calm he was regarding his intentions. He was not running away from a gulity conscience, but running toward his future made clear by Ramona's stolen kiss. There can never be any other woman for him but Amy, and girlfriend status will no longer suffice.

    People have been crying out on here for more of an 'ensemble' feel in an episode and this does look like it has it. The gang working together as a group for a common goal, stopping Ramona's advances lol. I am actually really looking forward to this episode.

    Raj tries to ask Ramona out but she shoots him down. Once the gang realizes whats going on, they don't allow Ramona and Sheldon to be alone. The whole episode is basically the gang gossiping and discovering what Ramona is up to. I asked if there was any progression with anybody else and I guess there isn't. Please don't shoot the messenger.

    Just watched as many clips as I could get my grubby mitts on, but I think I can say: That. Was. DELIGHTFUL. ALL CAPS DELIGHTFUL. This episode was like a multi-faceted diamond whose flaws (and they did exist) only make it more beautiful. Let's get those flaws out of the way first before the squee: This was another episode where a story theoretically about a woman's career was actually more about her male partner's feelings. It was very, very well executed, don't get me wrong, but I can't help but notice it. I wish Amy's concerns had been couched early and clearly as 'I will miss you, Sheldon' rather than 'I worry about Sheldon missing me'. But it was so clear that she would miss Sheldon when he said 'This is important' and she said softly 'so are you', that I couldn't hold it against the episode. Because that was so lovely. I found myself surprisingly tolerant of Sheldon's describing how much he depends on Amy. Still not quite my favourite, though. Some other stuff which I'll take to the episode thread since it's not Shamy-related. Now that's out of the way... Awwwwwwwwwwww, YISS. Loved that Sheldon's first response was that Amy should take the job, and that he was trying to front that he was okay with it. 'I got the blues. My baby done left me.' That little snap of irritation at his friends' slowness is what makes it. Loved also that Sheldon was shown to actually do a concrete thing to help his girlfriend move. 'Apparently, it'll survive a plane crash...So maybe you should ride in it.' Awwwwwwwww. Loved, loved, LOVED that Sheldon made it clear that he wanted to have sex with Amy because he wanted to have sex with her, not to get her to stay. That, in fact, he was worried that 'a hit of this' would dissuade her from her career move. You keep that blushful modesty, Doctor Cooper. The greatest dirty talk in the history of ever. Bureaucratic, wordy, clinical - it was all I had ever wanted from Shamy dirty talk. 'What if I get strange and eccentric?' '...............I'll love you no matter what.' Yes, it's mildly snarky, but so loving. 'I am proud of you'. D'awwwwwwwwww.

    What an episode... - Amy making him oatmeal (I love it when they be all domestic) - "My baby done left me" - Sheldon trying to be a loving and supportive boyfriend - The way he caresses her arm when they kiss - "...you find yourself craving a hit of this..." "It's a risk I'm willing to take." - THE DIRTY TALK OMG - "I'll love you no matter what" - "Just remember, I am proud of you, and I support you in all that you do." So much yes.

    Not to brag but... I called the "runs to Princeton" thing! LOL although I wasn't betting on a proposal. I want to wait for more news before I start making predictions and so on, but I am glad nothing bad happened and that the solidity of the couple has been mantained. I am very satisfied with S10 overall. My hunch right now is that they'll have a sit down and a talk about it all. It could be that by the end of the premiere they are engaged, or it could be that Amy might tell him to calm down and that he shouldn't propose just because he feels guilty about Ramona planting one on him. Or both. I think it depends on whether this situation made him propose because he had an epiphany that made him realize it's time, or because he feels guilty about what happened and wants to prove he is committed to Amy and Amy alone. Regardless, whether they get engaged in the premiere or not, I don't think any further drama will come from this. So all is good in Shamy land!

    I just feel incredibly angry. Not because Shamy got a proper good finale or a great season overall, but because I see that TPTB are very much capable of great writing as long as they give a shit. It just baffles me how they can be this dismissive of a good part of their audience. I've invested time and emotion in this show as much as every Shamy fan has and this is what I get. It's so, so unfair. Again, please don't think I feel Shamy fans don't deserve this. I honestly, honestly do. But why can't they give that much love to all their other characters? I just... ugh never mind.

    I think what I love about this episode, upon rewatch, is that it's showing us how Sheldon has changed while at the same time he is still Sheldon. With Ramona, he's his usual, oblivious, clueless, uninterested Sheldon from years past. He barely notices her "attributes" and even if he does it's from a very "matter-of-fact" point of view. This is the Sheldon from S2-3 that some parts of the fandom (who has probably quit by now, who knows - and who cares) kept complaining was gone and had been ruined. He's not gone. He's never been gone. He's just put 10 years of human life experience and interaction under his belt, has fallen in love, and has merged his old persona with all these experiences. Of course, this will mean nothing to people who want to dig their heels and insist the show has jumped the shark because the characters haven't remained static caricatures of themselves, but whatever. I think this episode greatly mixed the old and the new. As for the germophobia and the gang not noticing... well, I think they probably don't pay attention all that much and also I don't think they're as privy as to what goes on behind closed doors in the Cooper-Fowler residence, at least until last week. But it's another thing that makes sense to me. I know some might want Sheldon to only be ok with Amy touching him, but that's not how getting over a phobia works. Amy was the catalyst that made him begin to overcome it, but it's not something that was ever specific to one person. Phobias are serious, general obstacles. And I hope I'm never going to see people (not Shamy fans of course) complain because Sheldon (mostly) got over it, because that's like being upset that someone got over depression. If you enjoy watching someone be in distress because "it's funny", then you're a bully. The show has always found the way to find the humor in the difficulties, but ultimately it's a good thing that Sheldon is probably a lot more relaxed and happy in his every day life because of managing his phobias. And it's nice to watch him be more relaxed as a character too, because you know how much he had to work for it and it's payoff as a viewer.

    I loved, loved, loved the episode. Something that stood out to me was the way they reinforced Sheldon's decision to propose in the next episode. It seemed out of the blue to some, but I thought last night covered it beautifully and removed any doubt that it was already on his mind. Before she even tells him about Princeton, he says: "I don't know how I ever got by without you," "I've come to realize I'm completely dependent on you," and "to wake up every morning and know you're there is a great comfort to me." He also praised her cooking, wanted sex, and considered her well-being before his own. This man had marriage on the brain before she left. Ramona just emphasizes what he knew in this episode: he doesn't want to be away from Amy... til death do they part. Sigh. These two.

    I loved the way Sheldon's part was scripted and the way Jim played it ! Some of his usual stuff was there : what if he became eccentric living alone, Einstein versus Leonard, playing the blues, informing his other half about his bowel movements (The latter merely being what my parents' generation seemed to do a lot of anyway and wouldn't seem odd to them at all - possibly something to do with the consequences of what foods had been available in their wartime youth) and avoiding wine even though there was no immediate work to do etc - BUT how sensibly and 'plain' he spoke to Amy in a normal, adult voice for so much of the time. Sweet. I hope we get more of that. It balances him out. The TR for ep 24 describing his serious face at the end seems to promise it for the future.

    I'm having a hard time believing that he's doing it because of some sort of guilt or panic. The show hammered the point home that he was thinking about Amy the whole time and that the Ramona thing is not his fault beyond maybe being a bit naive about her motives. He was in the middle of explaining to her why he's not interested and then she kissed him against his will. He is completely innocent here. What I think this moment could be is an epiphany, a moment of clarity where everything just clicks into place much like in Earworm where he also just runs out straight to Amy (and he's even wearing the same shirts so I take it it's an intentional parallel). Why exactly the moment Ramona kissed him? Apart from the dramatic effect in the episode I think it may be about the idea that Ramona is violating something that he only shares with Amy. Being in a physical relationship with Amy has been such a huge deal for him and he was working years to overcome his issues with intimacy - to have someone he thought was a friend disrespect that is just one big NOPE for him. Amy's are the only lips he ever wants to kiss again he might as well make it official. Or to quote one of my favourite movies: "... when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. " (omg, that sounds cheesy, I'm sorry. lol)

    LOL Kazzie, you always get the best tapings! As for Ramona. Well, to be fair, she isn't coming onto Sheldon *that* hard, really. The only thing that gives it away is that she wants to get him alone. But Sheldon is so focused on Amy (I LOVE that he talks about her all the time) and just seeing Ramona in a friendly light that it doesn't cross his mind that them being alone might have ulterior motives. I find it believable because it isn't like Shamy had your average courtship with all the ambiguity and ulterior motives that usually entails. So even with his experience with Amy, that doesn't match the "average" of how these things work usually. Like, neither Sheldon nor Amy ever tried to get each other alone in order to get physical early on in their friendship, because neither of them was interested in that. But when Penny points it out, he confronts her immediately and maturely. I think this is a great episode for Sheldon, really. Amy is perhaps overreacting a bit, but it might be even just worry that he might be oblivious rather than jealousy per se. ETA: Also, don't forget that Sheldon used to spend a lot of one-on-one time with Ramona back in the day, also with no ulterior motives. So I don't think he can be faulted for not realizing she's hitting on him.

    What I adored about it is that there wasn't a double meaning in the sense of Amy trying to get to sex and Sheldon not getting it. The double meaning was that to them this IS literally like sex talk. She loves it! Man. I would say "get married", but that's beyond the point now, isn't it.

    I hate this argument so much. From the very first episode, a huge element of the show was Howard being girl-crazy, Raj not being able to talk to women but desperately wanting to be with one, and Leonard declaring that he would be with Penny one day. All of which happened while the guys went to work and did nerdy things in their free time. It wasn't until Sheldon became romantically involved with Amy that I saw the complaint of TBBT becoming a "relationship show". Are we giving him all the credit for why it wasn't before? He was the only one who didn't jump into bed with random women, go on dates, or dream of being in a long-term relationship with the girl across the hall. Why isn't it ok when Sheldon does it? This season alone was full of science and nerdy moments. E2 was about the guy's project and Bernie/Penny's job. E3 was about the guy's project. E6 was Penny and Leonard going to a nerdy convention. E8 was Amy/Sheldon doing a scientific experiment. E9 was all about Sheldon being jealous of Bert's scientific accomplishments and Howard's motorized Stephen Hawking toy. E10 was all about Sheldon and Leonard fighting over their nerdy stuff. E14 was all about an emotion detector prototype. E15 was all about the guy's project and trains. E17 was about comic con. E19 had Sheldon and Amy working on a quantum cognition experiment. E20 was about Sheldon losing info about the guy's project and Bernie going back to work. E22 showed them playing video games, juggling, walking on stilts, unicycling, playing with ventriloquist dummies... everything nerdy you can think of. E23 showed the guys lose their project and Amy getting a fellowship to Princeton. Yes, there is relationship stuff weaving in and out of every episode because Leonard and Penny are married, Howard and Bernadette are married, Sheldon lives with Amy, and Raj is always on the hunt for a girlfriend... just like S1-9. I know that they don't spend as much time together as a group because of their relationships, but I don't see how it's not comparable to S1. E1 set up the whole Leonard and Penny thing. E3 was Leonard and Penny going on a "date". E5 was Leonard hooking up with Leslie Winkle. E6 was Leonard and Penny's first kiss. E6 was all about Howard hooking up with Penny's friend. E8 was all about Raj being set up with a girl that Sheldon "steals" from him. E9-14 were had sprinklings of relationship dealings between Leonard and Penny. E15 was all about the guys hitting on Sheldon's sister. E16 was Penny throwing a party for Leonard and Howard hoping to hook up with her easy friends. E17 was all about Penny's breakup and agreeing to go out with Leonard. This show has always been about relationships. Always. And it still deals with work, science, and nerdy hobbies they all enjoy. A lot. I understand the argument that Shamy gets a lot of attention and Lenny has been poorly developed/written, but calling it a "relationship show" like that's anything new is just confusing.

    Been busy all day but I just wanted to say: 1) Happy to hear the news that M&M have been officialized and got a bump in salary (still nowhere near what they deserve, but it's a huge bump nonetheless). Not that there were any doubts. 2) I loved last night's episode too. Once again a funny, feel-good, yet meaningful episode! Shamy are adorable as always and I have to say, I'm going to miss Raj being around Los Robles. I really like to see him hang out with Shamy and Lenny for a change, instead of always being relegated to Howardette's. It was great to see Zack again and I absolutely loved Bernadette's secret ventriloquist past. I often moan that the show doesn't give the girls the chance to be anywhere near as odd and quirky as their partners and this was exactly the kind of stuff I meant. I also loved Amy being "Sheldon" when out with the girls, with her phone and fact-checking. 3) I loved the plot about getting older and Sheldon feeling like he's not that special anymore. I totally agree with the discussion from earlier about how Sheldon was used to being a stand-out in every way as a child prodigy and how at the end of the day being a child prodigy mostly means you only get to things first, but eventually the perks start dwindling as you get older and become more "normal". And I loved that Amy *did* also mention his solid career in the list of reasons why he should be proud of his life. Top notch Shamy once again. And that tag was adorable. Roll on 10x23!

    I'd like to say something here and honestly it is from the bottom of my heart. Dont want to get praised or something, I just need to get this out of my chest. I am a shamy but I am mostly a tbbt fan sinceI have found the tv show in 2015 but you all probably had read my earlier posts about that so I wont repeat myself. I have been a happy shipper this season but I also suffered in past as my ship was broken up and all support I got from fandom at the time, from shippers and non shippers which I got from FB groups I was in , it was very important to me. Some of them became my online friends and it was really cool. I want to say that I am really sorry and also sad for some of our beloved characters from this show not being very cared at moment. I have said so many times that every character has potencial for so many great storylines but writers made their choices and regarding lenny and raj, they really could have made so much better and they did not. I know it is useless to say they have two more seasons for that as they season after season the results are few or litle developed. But I am a woman of hope and refuse to give up of hoping that writers can change their minds at some point. I am here for you as fan of the show. I understand your frustrations but we can not do anything about it but writers. I myself have a few frustrations regards these characters even in not so passionate way that only a shipper does how it feels. Hopefully we may talk about all these questions for the hiatus in a nice and suppertive way. If it depended on me we all be happy. However it may depend on me to help you as a member of this community if you need to be listened or to feel supported. Have a nice day, forum fellows

    Exactly. I think it's genius that they brought in another female scientist who is not just beautiful and smart, but attentive to Sheldon in a way Amy usually is. We know from S2 and this episode that Ramona is willing and capable of teaching Sheldon new skills, cooking for him, being attentive to him, etc. Not only that, but she came during a time when Sheldon was missing Amy and craving all of those things most... which leads us to the fact that Sheldon really seemed to enjoy Ramona's company and friendship. To me, that is what makes this episode so profound. On paper, Ramona replaces Amy is a new and shiny way that should be more than enough for a man as scientific and clinical as Sheldon. So what does Amy have that Ramona doesn't? His heart. It's really that simple.

    I pointed this tidbit out on the DT, but the episode he is watching (sad as it is that I know this from the brief clip we saw!) is "Plankton!" and basically has a naive Spongebob initially being duped by Mr. Krab's nemesis into believing he was a friend but in reality was a bad guy on a mission to use Spongebob. Coincidence, or the writers having a little fun with the premise of this episode?

    Loved this episode so much! Wow, Sheldon has really gone all in on his relationship with Amy. I watched a few old episodes this week and its really nice to see the progression in their relationship. Folks have already pointed out the things I loved but here are a few favorites: Amy’s dirty talk was clinical scientific and Sheldon’s had more abandon. A nice capper for the redressing of the sexual balance in this relationship. I think any lingering doubts about Sheldon’s desire can be finally erased. How quickly Amy answers, “I am” to Sheldon’s query of interest. Sheldon caressing Amy’s arm. The intertwined finger handhold toward the bedroom … awwww. I didn’t know we were getting an “I love you" from Amy. That and Amy telling Sheldon that he’s important made me feel better about any weird dynamics about her worrying about Sheldon, more than missing him. I’m good now It was amusing to hear Sheldon say that Amy’s insistence on being around him is annoying. It was said matter of factly, but somehow sweetly, and it’s a reminder of how much she adores him. Sheldon’s face had a similar reaction to Amy’s Princeton news as he did to her breaking up with him on Skype. This was a really big deal to him (before he came to a good place with it), yet he still tried to be supportive and encouraging in his own flawed way. We get reminded that Amy is smart, talented, and in-demand (even though I get the point about this being more about her boyfriend’s feelings.) Sheldon buys Amy a suitcase thereby doing something thoughtful for her just because he loves her and wants to support her. Also the, “Here’s some quality luggage,” line cracked me up. Sheldon telling Amy he likes waking up next to her. This kind of line usually makes me cringe, but Jim did a really nice job with it. The way Sheldon said, “of course,” when Amy asked if he wanted to walk her down the stairs. And of course, the "I'm proud of you." I’m sure I will watch it again several times this weekend

    Finally have time to write something! Watched it twice because OMG IT WAS SO GREAT!!! Every scene between them was so lovely. <3 First of all, I found Amy's conflict about accepting the offer very relatable. Been there, done that. The prospect of leaving your partner behind for several months (even if they aren't like Sheldon) is a tough one, even more so when it's a really great opportunity for you that you'll probably regret if you don't take it. (Luckily, I could take the easy way out back then and my sweetheart just went with me. lol) It's a pity that Penny cut her short when she was really getting into describing what she'll do in Princeton but I loved seeing her so excited even if only for a moment. So while, yes, there was a lot of "but what about Sheldon?" going on I found it was mostly about Amy struggling with her decision and I really liked seeing that. On Sheldon's side of things I really liked that he never said she couldn't go. Sure he was upset upon hearing the news but he told her he had to go realising the importance of it. And even more so, after processing the news and with a friendly nudge from Leonard into the right direction he really went all out to support her and after seeing soooo many times how Amy was the one supporting Sheldon it was so great to see him in that role for once! Especially the tag was really sweet here. One of the best parts, obviously: RIP stupid annual coitus joke! You will not be missed! After all the speculation and wishful thinking about how they will or should end this thing I felt the way they did it here was surprisingly casual but I'm not unhappy about it. The scene was super sweet and I loved the shy flirty body language and the dialogue that could be straight out of a fanfic. (I've read the folded clothes thing more than I care to count.) Also, I think we can successfully check this off: We didn't see it but we sure heard it. LOL "Amy, you naughty vixen!" - "This form of stimulation is highly efficient!" #dead Anyway, Jessica Radliffe from Glamour will be really proud of herself next week for finally getting that engagement thing right! Seeing this whole episode together it really plays out like it's putting all the pieces into the right place for the engagement. The way both Amy and Sheldon emphasised the importance of their relationship here was really heart warming and got us some lovely dialogue bits. I could gush about this all day! Again, what a great episode!!

    I love supportive Sheldon! I thought it was so great how Sheldon never tried to talk Amy out of going, instead telling her she must go, even though it upset him. As an added bonus, so nice that CBS chose to rerun the Annual Birthday Booty Spectacular in the 8:30 timeslot.

    You guys, the last episode was super charming for the Shamy! I grinned like a loon at Sheldon's 'You have to say that, you're sweet on me'. And bless Amy for grounding her consolatory speech with 'solid scientific research' instead of waving away how important science is to Sheldon! And even her muttering about warnings was done with such love! This indulgent little head-shake. 'Cause she's sweet on Sheldon. And he is on her with his own indulgent 'You're so cute'. Ugh, I hate gushing like this, but they were just so damn delightful!

    This got me thinking Amy having a little panic attack could be a nice cold open like: Previously on TBBT [recap montage], Sheldon proposes, Amy's shocked face, Sheldon waits for an answer, Amy starts to panic like in Prom, Sheldon: "Oh no, not again..." runs inside to help her. Roll the opening credits. And then after you can have a quiet scene when things calmed down and he can explain a bit more about what happened and how much he loves her etc etc. and eventually ask her again and then she says yes. I think that would be a good compromise between her immediately saying yes and the idea that he should try again when he's not emotionally compromised by Ramona's actions or whatever. Like, I'm personally not a fan of sending him home as if he just made a 30 min busride to her place. He travelled across country for literally hours - you don't do that if you're not certain that this is exactly what needs to happen. So sending him back home without anything being accomplished strikes me as a bit harsh here. And of course the other extreme with Amy accepting without even getting suspicious that something must have happened (after all she knew about Ramona) would leave me a bit unsatisfied as well. So a talk where Sheldon explains his actions would be much welcomed. After all in Earworm when he showed up at Amy's door he didn't just ask her to be his girlfriend again - he drifted off into some adorkable ramblings about how she is his heartworm. I find the proposal so far very reminiscent of that (he's even wearing the same shirts!) so I would love something similar as a resolution for this cliffhanger.

    I don't think anyone can be mad at Sheldon, no. And to me it's more than not being able to read emotions, it is down to experience. Sheldon has never experienced "conventional" flirting and all the dancing around that goes on with that. He and Amy started out as very straightforward, everything-out-in-the-open friends with no ulterior motives towards each other. They got together before anything physical really happened between them other than that drunken kiss, but there was still a clarity of intentions at all times from both parties and none of these games that Ramona is playing. And, indeed Amy isn't any better than Sheldon. She had no clue Bert was hitting on her until Raj and Howard pointed it out and even then, she didn't buy it at first and it took her 5 minutes to figure it out for herself. Because they're just not used to this kind of behavior, they're not used to people having ulterior motives around them and, yes, they are very committed to one another and for Sheldon that should already means he's off-limits. I actually think they have written Sheldon as a massive sweetheart all season long, when it comes to Amy and these last two episodes are just the icing on the cake. We had been saying for years that you don't need to put them at odds with each other to make them funny, and this season has proven it so nicely.

    There were several funny scenes with the whole gang. They were all very protective of Sheldon and Amy's relationship and took turns getting in Ramona's way. At one point, Ramona sits next to Sheldon on the couch during dinner and Bernie wiggles her way in between them. In another scene, Ramona was leaving and Penny suggested they all walk her to her car and they take turns getting in between her and Sheldon as they walked down the stairs. Penny has a talk with Sheldon about Ramona being into him. He doesn't get it because he has a girlfriend. He doesn't understand. She compares him to a limited edition action figure and Sheldon says that Amy has already taken him out of the box and played with him. Lots of laughs for that one.

    The first scene is a Skype session between Shamy. Sheldon calls her and we see "I miss you" stuff. They have a second Skype session where he mentions Ramona. When that call is done, she calls the girls and yells at them: "You had one job!"
