koops Posted April 7, 2013 Posted April 7, 2013 (edited) @Cat. I'm not going to re-quote the post for conciseness, less scrolling But. Re: the coitus line. The moment I read that line in the report, I took that as kind of a cover-up. Sheldon does not want Amy to know he's been "working on it", it's been obvious for a while and long before this episode and the latest snarkyness has come out. He wants Amy to think he's still the "old" Sheldon, for whatever reason. It was a very random point to make right there and then. However, I also think the writers feel it's hilarious to show Amy being stuck in a relationship that frustrates her, and this episode showcased all of that to the maximum level. So that line was simply put there to have one more "haha, poor Amy" moment in the episode. Re: date nights. Yes and no. I think they were indeed implying he's been trying to get out of date nights for a while. Which is more errors in continuity, since he's the one who invented them and was SO proud of them last season. But that's another story. However, I don't think that they are trying to imply her company is tedious to him. He specifically said "date night with you", not "If I wanted something tedious I'd rather be with you". I think they are trying to suggest he finds date nights tedious. And, again, it was another "haha, poor Amy" moment. So funny. *sarcasm sign* I don't think they're even reverting Sheldon back to "old" Sheldon. Because THIS Sheldon, with Amy, never even existed. So it's not even a matter of one step forward, two steps back; or one step forward, twenty steps back. It's a one step forward, one step into an alternate reality matter. Amy was the exception to every rule he had, it seems like the writers have forgotten about that and now she's just one of the group. You get glimpses of the newer Sheldon in moments like when he asks what he should do, but other than that...
