Maddie Posted April 7, 2014 Posted April 7, 2014 Everyone feels occasional jealousy, of course, I don't mean Amy is above all forms of jealousy. Like I said she had her occasional "Alex" moments or "I don't need other girls to see him walking around like sex on a stick". But she's not an insecure character in the sense of feeling jealous of someone she knows so well as Penny, especially when they all spend so much time together. But, like I said, I can even buy that Amy's perception might be warped. I said many times that I don't think she realizes the impact she's had on Sheldon. In that case, though, Leonard's response should have been more like the one he gave her in Cooper Extraction, the one he gave her here just supports her statement that Sheldon is more comfortable with Penny, which is simply not true. As for hurting his feelings, I agree that things have changed since THGG and that she's probably more considerate of his feelings. As is Sheldon (see Spoiler Alert But I also do not think Amy was telling him just what he wanted to hear in Romance Resonance at all. I always thought the point of that scene was that Amy is the only one who really gets him and understood that he was fed up with everyone's cheap pats on the back. She went with "supportive girlfriend" mode first ("In neuroscience we also do this... blah blah") and when that didn't work she went with brutal honesty. It was clear from the tone of voice she used. That's what made that scene great. So yeah, in a sense the told him what he wanted (or rather, needed) to hear, but I don't think she didn't believe it, I do think she was being honest. I get what you're saying about Leonard's comment, and agree that it isn't congruent with what he told her in Cooper Extraction. It really seems like they have been highlighting that something is wrong with Amy. For some reason, she's holding back. I'm hoping this will be clarified in 7.23 and/or 7.24 because it's obvious they are setting up for something. I also understand what you mean about the RR line now. Amy seems to understand Sheldon more than anyone and is able to say the right thing to make him feel better. I'm not trying to justify the writing in this episode, but I do think we will get answers to our questions in the next two episodes.
