S7 Spoilers in Season 7 Posted April 24, 2014 Why can't they just be friends? In a way, it's what they have been all along with the exceptional, and obligatory physical contact. No doubt they care for each other, but that is friendship. Love, physicality, and intimacy shouldn't be forced. If Sheldon wants to have her as more than that, and not just on paper, then he will prove it. Otherwise, Amy is a great character in her own, and I would love to see her rocking out the neuroscience, perhaps even stirring a little competition with Sheldon. Who knows what that would drive Sheldon to? I like the quote, "Love is a friendship caught on fire." If that is their endgame. I say a Nobel for Amy!!!! .....and one for Sheldon later. Agreed. I have a clear vision of Sheldon happily walking Amy down the aisle...to marry someone else.
