Here goes my two cents
What do you hope and predict for season 8 Shamy? How do you see their story going?
There is a huge difference in terms of hope vs. predict. What I hope for? I hope Shamy find their friendship again. I hope they have fun and smile again. I hope it’s a lot less drama, and lot more quirky. I hope that they once again are one another’s exception. Now do I expect any of that? Judging from the prior two seasons, I would say no. This involves a lot of individual work on each of the character’s, as well as sentimentality for the pairing which let’s face it TBBT isn’t big on. So I am trying to go into it as best as I can as a huge fan without expectation and just see what they come up with, and then decide from there.
Do you think Sheldon will have to face his true feelings for Amy and not run away from them anymore?
I think eventually of course he will need to if they are going to remain together. Now the issue is the waiting until that time comes. I am no longer interested in seeing an upset Amy and Sheldon calling all the shots. I hope they can realize it might be time to start making those small adjustments to join them together again and show them moving forward. It doesn’t need to be all drama and angst just because they are a real couple now.
Will Sheldon continue resisting any changes in their relationship?
This is Sheldon’s nature and the writers clearly find it amusing. However, looking at it from an Amy perspective as well since she is involved in the relationship too it becomes tricky to watch. I wouldn’t mind them holding hands once every six months, as long as they were happy and enjoying one another again. I think the writers are at a tipping point, are they going to go for it and take Sheldon out of his own way when it comes to Amy or are they going to keep the status quo and have it remain till the S10? We shall see.
Do you think Sheldon loves Amy?
I wouldn’t ship a couple so strongly and invest so much time if I had not felt that they were in love. I used to always feel like I was watching a pairing that was in love, and for their own reasons, they didn’t need to say the words or give those physical aspects because it didn’t matter. You could absolutely see the love. And then they decided it was very funny for Amy to push, nag and generally be frustrated with Sheldon making him come across quite low as a boyfriend. It’s unfortunate to see from such a great pairing, but at this point, I would say while Sheldon may love Amy but he doesn’t appreciate her perhaps. And I don’t say this at all because of physical affection. I don’t ever want Sheldon to be unrecognizable. I absolutely adore the character. I just want the bonding and comradery and mutual love that used to be so evident. It’s very up in the air right now.
Do you think there will be a point where Sheldon is the one who does want to proceed in the relationship and move things forward, and Amy will be unsure about it or hesitating about it?
I would worship and love this idea. In particular, in regards to the sexual issue. I’ve always felt Amy was a whole lot of talk. She says the comments she does and it makes some think that all she wants is to get herself some. However, when you look at her turning her head when Sheldon grabbed the Rubik cube, making shocked faces when he was talking “dirty” to Raj, being shy during D&D, etc. All those point to me that it would make total sense and it would be amazing to see the tables flipped because I will tell you most of the big Shamy moments that I just adore are the ones where Sheldon took control and progressed their dynamic. It just fits so much better.
How long Amy will put up with Sheldon's resisting behavior?
The biggest thing here is that it’s not Amy’s fault, and it’s not Sheldon’s either. It is both of them. The biggest issue in the dynamic as it stands to me today is I feel that the writers are not looking at it all from her point of view, and she really is just Sheldon’s girlfriend to them and that’s it. Amy needs to stop pushing issues that they are not ready for, such as the moving in matter. She also needs to be honest and up front with her feelings which she doesn’t do much these days. The manipulative streak that came out from her in the table episode was difficult to watch. And Sheldon, well, he needs to realize that he has a GEM of a girlfriend, despite it all. Some of his comments this past season *sigh* I hope the writers can think about both sides in the future, and not just how it impacts Sheldon or Shelnard or Shenny or Sheleny (whatever their nickname is ).
Do you think there will be a point where Amy breaks up with Sheldon?
It’s so typical and boring, but I’d rather see a break-up than the same ole thing continuing. I always adored how Shamy used to do things their own way. In my opinion, it’s their greatest asset. It would be a shame to watch them fall into the typical break-up route in order to one day be reunited. However, if handled right and it brought bad ass Amy and unique, quirky Shamy back then I would say, “BRING IT!”
How will Amy progress as a character and towards Sheldon?
I would hope that they remember that people didn’t become such a huge fan of Amy solely because she was Sheldon’s main squeeze. Just like Penny didn’t only become popular because she slept with Leonard. I admired Amy because of her strength, quirkiness, honesty, confidence, wackiness, and real heart. I hope to learn more about her. I don’t need more episodes on itchy sweaters or couch cushions. It would be amazing to see, and this goes for all the characters, an attitude of investigation with who they are. In regards to Sheldon, I just hope that she doesn’t come running back to him with open arms. I also don’t want her to manipulate or play games with him. These writers really did write themselves into a tricky spot, so we’ll see. But on a positive side, they have surprised me before. Who on earth could have predicted Sheldon giving such an AMAZING first kiss to Amy? He really went for it. I was pleasantly surprised.
Could Shamy work on a scientific project together at CalTech?
I would give you my first born, organs, and even my coupon binder for this storyline to happen.
Will there be a mutual changes of ILY's?
Words don’t matter to me. I don’t care if they say a line or not. As I said, in S5 especially, I always felt the love and they didn’t even kiss back then. It didn’t matter because you could see the love in their character’s actions and stories with one another. You could see it in the chemistry and happiness they exuded when around one another.
Do you think there will be a point where Sheldon actually does want to live with Amy and invites her to live with him?
Yes. I think the way marriage was the big step to Lenny, I think that the move in and sex issue is the same for Shamy. I just hope that the joke is dropped more or less till they are ready. I mean, the Lenny proposals after the 50th time wasn’t all that funny. This moving in issue is feeling the same way to me. And I hope that when it does happen it’s of the understanding that he is asking her to move in as a girlfriend, and not just someone to drive him and feed him, such as a Leonard replacement.
Do you think Sheldon will ever propose to Amy, and if so how and why it will happen?
I think Amy wants marriage because she feels in her young at heart mind that it’s a representation of the ultimate commitment. I feel that Amy wants all these things because all she really wants is to feel confident and secure with Sheldon’s love. I don’t feel that we have really seen a scene where marriage was brought up with Shamy in a serious way where you knew it was a real discussion about their future. All I need, as I said earlier, is to know that as I am shutting my TV off when the series ends and saying goodbye to this show and pairing that I love knowing that they are truly and deeply in love. On the other hand, I’m not opposed to it. I just can barely picture it with where Shamy are at emotionally at this point in time.
What exceptional could happen between Shamy?
I will steal from Koops here and say that I cannot see Shamy making steps that are not exceptional. Every step they make when they finally get there makes my shipper heart soar. Shamy is an absolute power couple, how could they not be exceptional? Both parties in it are adorable, extremely brilliant, strong, confident and interesting. And then when joined together it just becomes a quirky dream team and as Amy pointed out a story that puts The Beauty & the Beast to shame.
Thanks for reading. Have a good day.
