[Spoilers]Shamy S8 Thread

:) Hello, fellow Shamy fans. I've been quietly lurking on this website for about a year and a half and decided it was time to join this crazy fun forum. With the season finale just around the corner, it feels like good timing. I remember last year when we were all going nuts about the possibility of a huge Shamy S7 finale since the penultimate episode ended with a big Lenny proposal. We all naturally assumed the season finale had to be Shamy. All signs pointed to yes and then we got that shocking (and yet not so shocking ending considering all the clues the writers had left us along the way) episode of Sheldon leaving on a train without telling Amy goodbye. I remember a week before the 7x24 taping report was released, I told myself that I was going to have low expectations and then for whatever reason, I broke that promise to myself and decided to get all hyped up when I saw everyone else getting excited about a Shamy finale.

 

We had reason to get excited, though after the incredible amount of Shamy love we received in S7, especially because of the psychic's prediction. This time I intend on keeping my promise and keeping low expectations. I just don't want to jinx it again. I won't say whether I agree that "dramatic changes" means something bad because that could jinx it as well. But do I think that Sheldon pushing Lenny to set a wedding date has something to do with his relationship with Amy? I'm not sure. It could go either way honestly. For all we know, he could be pressuring them because it's just irritating for him not to know when they're getting married because it might conflict with his convention schedule. :p lol

 

Maybe something suddenly pushes for him to hesitantly admit that he's been selfish about keeping Lenny from living together. Something like...another visit from Professor Proton. Just like he was able to make him realize that he needs to appreciate those around him, Arthur makes him realize that everything's beyond his control- that things change but just because things change, it doesn't mean that good changes won't come along as well. It's exciting to think about all the possibilities. For now, I don't want to brainstorm too much about what these "dramatic changes" mean for our beloved Shamy but I love hearing all of your theories.

Why on earth would Shamy break up...I don't get it. What...I mean how...it's just NOT happening! They are in a great place and will remain that way. Please, no drama or angst for this couple.

In Penny's voice, "What is happening"?

They have, in season 4, remember? And then he got a whole bunch of cats, and they had to call his mom.

They've made it very obvious that they're not going to break up. Let's not be worried prematurely.

This storyline is pregnant with an untold story- and I'm excited to see what happens.

That wasn't a real break up for one they were not technically dating and for two it was them tricking the others remember the paid kids $20 for borrowing the cats at the end.

I think you're misinterpreting that scene. He didn't pay kids $20 to "borrow" their cats.

I took it as he had a shit load of cats to get rid of so to sweeten the pot of getting a free cat, he paid the kids $20 each to take one off his hands.

Now not only do they get a free cat, but $20 to buy food and/or other cat stuff for it.

Usually, after a big SHAMY episode (except 7 x 16) Amy is almost in the shadows for one or two episodes.

In season 7 Mayim was absent during the taping of ep 3 and ep 23, but she was on screen in both episodes.

When she had the car accident, at the begining of Season 6, she never missed one episode because of her injured hand.

Mayim is a great profesional and a Smart girl, and she loves TBBT and her work a lot!

 What about if instead of giving us clues on twitter or IG, she decided to be off the grid, as a a big question?

Guys, if something bad (God fordib!) has happened, do you really think the writers and CBS would put all of this"DRAMATIC changes with Amy"?

SHAMY is Ok! They are not going to break up! I M O.

I don't remember how exactly it went down, but it wasn't a real break up in my opinion.

 

I'm wondering if she is even going to have time to learn her lines for the finale at this rate.

Yeah, I agree they weren't official BF/GF at the time so I'll give you that. BUT, they did end their friendship so in their own quirky way, it actually was a break up of some sort....IMO.

And from what the characters have said about them or to them, including Sheldon & Amy themselves, the gang thought of Shamy as a couple from the very beginning, even before they became BF/GF.

I'm glad that Shamy is at least being included as the B plot of the episode. It's literally been ages since at least some of the focus has been on Shamy. Dramatic changes could literally be anything but I agree with someone else's theory on here that it might be Amy and not Penny who is leaving somewhere this season. It kinda makes sense if you think about it. Shamy has been super strong this season and Sheldon has matured a lot. They even talked about the possibility of a long distance relationship in the Mars colonization episode. Now, obviously Amy wouldn't leave forever. Whenever one of them has left, it's usually just for the summer. It's possible that Sheldon starts pushing Lenny to pick a wedding date already simply because he sees them both stressed about it (for whatever reason) and decides to make it simple for them and starts helping them decide a date and basically ends up taking over the wedding planning.

 

Amy could end up upset that Sheldon is focusing so much of his energy on another couple to the point where he even blew off date night. They could possibly get into a fight because of it. When Sheldon comes over to her place to apology, Amy tells him what she wanted to tell him during date night that she got offered a chance to do a study somewhere far and that she wanted to discuss it with him before he made any rash decisions. Sheldon looks sad and after a few moments, he tells her that it sounds like a good opportunity and that he wants her to be happy. Of course, he regrets letting her go and rushes off to stop her only to find her at the bottom of the stairs at Los Robles.

 

She'll smile and said that she couldn't bare to be away from him for so many months. They hug and Sheldon admits that he would've been lonely without her and that he needs her by his side. That's when Amy pulls out a pair of plane tickets. She then says that she switched her ticket for Texas and offers for both of them to spend the summer in Texas with Sheldon's family. And the rest....don't want to jinx. lol What do you guys think? Too far fetched?

As someone said just because she hasn't posted on Facebook, Twiter, Instagram or none of the other cast haven't posted photos with her doesn't mean she hasn't been at work this week. Maybe she decided to stay of grid for a little longer this time and the cast I am sure would respect her wishes. 

 

Also some of the other cast haven't post as much in last few weeks either. Simon hasn't been on twitter since March 28th or something like that.

Love the username. I don't think that dramatic changes necessarily means 'bad'. Like when I moved from Cali (Shucks, I was 45 min from Burbank!) to the Northeast. That was 'dramatic', but not necessarily bad (except my lack of proximity to the Big Bang Theory! :)). It was dramatic because it was sudden and a very large move.

:) Thanks, CarG131. The username, as you probably guessed, was inspired from last night's TBBT ep. I agree that dramatic doesn't necessarily mean something bad. It will be sudden and it will be surprising is what I think it's mainly implying. lol I know we all wanted Shamy coitus and a Shamy proposal, unfortunately I think the writers are saving the good stuff for later. As for Amy possibly moving in? Honestly, as much as I'd love to see them living together, I feel like it's too soon. They barely had their first sleepover together. I still stand by the theory that the dramatic changes has something to do with Amy possibly leaving for the summer. I better buy me some lucky TBBT underwear to wear for this taping report. lol. Or just buy any TBBT merchandise in general. If I can't buy any new TBBT stuff, I'll make sure to have my TBBT card game box right beside me as I await the taping report. Just because I don't want to jinx it, doesn't mean I don't still deep down want some good Shamy stuff to go down in the season finale.

Aaaarrggghhhh... they've been saving it for later for 5 years! We've learned patience beyond patience, patience for so long that I'm gonna spell it in Latin. (patientia, patientiiae, f., suffering, patience). WE NEED MORE SHAMY!!!!

 

(Just letting you know: We're all crazy here, and you'll be converted soon if you're not already there! :))

xD Haha, yeah they certainly have been making us wait years but its the build up that's going to make the Shamy coitus scene even better. Even if we don't get coitus in the finale, for sure the TBBT writing team is gonna show us more of Sheldon having urges next season. I bet when the coitus does happens, it's gonna be totally unexpected, sweet and in true Shamy fashion. :) And it will have been worth the wait, trust me. For now, I'd just be happy hearing Sheldon telling Amy more "I love you"s and seeing more kisses between them of course. :3

 

Lol xD The crazy is infectious (in a good way) so I'll probably catch it soon. Do you have any more theories on the finale @CarG131?

Agreed. lol Man, that was bad. I was also one of the ones who naturally assumed Intimacy Acceleration was good news for Shamy fans. The TBBT writers trolled us HARD. Still, I can't help but wonder WHY Sheldon is pushing Lenny to set a wedding date already. Someone mentioned that if it's Sheldon doing the pushing then it could only be that he's doing it because it's gonna benefit him in some way. But how exactly could that be good news for Sheldon? Ugh! Lol Too many possibilities. As far as Sheldon trying to have his way with the wedding date, what do you think what his motivation is behind that?

In all fairness, as far as I know we never had a basic plot synopsis for Intimacy Acceleration. We only had the title to go off of. In this case we have the title and a small plot overview.

 Someone mentioned that if it's Sheldon doing the pushing then it could only be that he's doing it because it's gonna benefit him in some way. But how exactly could that be good news for Sheldon? Ugh! Lol Too many possibilities. As far as Sheldon trying to have his way with the wedding date, what do you think what his motivation is behind that?

 

I think you are talking about my post on the previous page of this thread. I made that assertion going off of the premise that Sheldon always seems to present an idea with his best interests in mind. I think it will be good for him because it will be something that he WANTS which takes off any pressures he might feel which we all know means good things for the status of Shamy. As for his motivation....who knows? I just can't think of a bad scenario as to why he would want Lenny to choose a date.

 

Really enjoying the possibility of this potential Lenny/Shamy dual finale.

Thank you BBT for bringing up the definition of dramatic because in the US I think many of us know it to be good and bad but in many foreign countries it appears it means something negative more than positive.   Your thinking was the same as mine...the second definition!   Your thoughts about "pushing" were similar to mine as well.

Reading some of the comments on here....Just because there is nothing to indicate a break up doesn't mean it couldn't happen "out of the blue"

I mean nobody saw Sheldon storming off at the end of 7'24 coming!

I am reeling my excitement in now over this one until we have taping spoilers, otherwise I'm gonna drive myself crazy thinking of all sorts of scenarios!
