[Spoilers]Shamy S8 Thread

Recommended Posts

I think we need to define broken here. He's not a horse, or broken like a vase. But he is emotionally pushed to the brink. He's heart is broken now.

Saying my comment on the plant analogy is emotional abuse is laughable. Amy emotionally abusing him!?!? Haha. I am thinking if another analogy of pots and kettles

 

You said "Sheldon only learns after being broken". That means you think he can only learn and grow through heartbreak. That is emotional abuse. And I made it perfectly clear I do NOT think that's what Amy is doing to him, but apparently what you think is necessary for him to be the man she needs.

Yes, see that to me says they aren't done here...and this "break" or breathing space is temp..... more to come for Shamy.  Basically Steve confirming what the majority feel & think.... that things are going to continue to happen between them in a large way!!! 

 

 

Ok...lets stop ripping either Sheldon or Amy apart here.  We love them both for all their ups & downs.....

Could you explain this because I don't get it?

sorry.. not ready to explain  ;) ... you just have to think about Sheldon and how he never does anything without planning everything and that not everything he plans goes the way he planned. ( and to look on the bright side)

Now that's more like it Koops!! 

 

I agree....I see somebody finding the ring.....don't know why, just do....

 

and yes, I actually had a dream last night that the premiere episode or 2nd the girls are at Amy's trying to cheer her up and she basically says "I just don't think he wants the same future I want" and Bernadette lets it slip out that Sheldon actually went to cousin to get his uncle's contact info because he is a jeweler.....and everyone is stunned.....and bam!

 

ok...now my fanfic is over

Totally agree with you.

 

Why should we be picking teams anyway? The situation is sad and difficult for both ot them. Both are right and both are wrong at the same time, that's the beauty of it!

 

From "Team Sheldon" (and believe me, I'm not using the term in a confrontational way) I've read very good character analysis of Sheldon, as it usual in Shamy fandom, wich is great, what I don't understand is your animosity towards Amy at this moment, I get that, unlike her, you are focusing in Sheldon's good traits, but i think you are also lacking understanding for her, she loves him very much (she says herself), but, essentialy, she is tired ("to be your girlfriend is exhausting", honestly, what's the lie there? as rewarding as Sheldon's reactions could be, it has to be exhausting to be always the one asking and pushing). Kerrycec03 said it just right in her post, she is tired of being the one who is always pushing. Why should she be always the one in the charge of "training" Sheldon into becoming a good boyfriend? Think back and you will see that all this "progress" Sheldon has made towards becoming a good boyfriend is because of Amy's pushing. If it were for him, they would still be in their Skyping stage!

 

And yes, of course Amy is no saint, now for all those who are now recalling her manipulative and pushy ways, had you forgotten what had taken her to those extremes? Yep, Sheldon's stubborness. A single example? Happy-kissy-Sheldon wouldn't have existed without her manipulative and naggy behaviour during their train trip, because he would still be reluctant to take the step and kiss her out of his own volition.

 

I honestly think it's unfair to bring up Amy's negative traits now in oder to elevate Sheldon, when almost all those had surfaced because of him. We could say that while being her boyfriend makes Sheldon a better man in many aspects, her relationship with him takes out the worst of her. And that's because he puts so little of his part.

 

Because whereas he is usually responds well to her pushing, there's almost zero initiative from him, when was the last time we had a plot about him trying to do something to make her happy? The closest thing we have is the Christmas episode, when he was buying a gift for her, and even then there was a totally ill intention behind his actions. Why is so difficult for him to wake up one day and think: "I really love Amy, and I want to do something that make her happy today", because he really wants to, not out of a contract obligation, to avoid her to get angry or as a consequence of her nagging or pushing. That's because in his list of priorities he's still the one and only, and while I know that's never going to really change, he will never put somebody else above him, he needs to short just a little the distance between the high top in which he puts himself and the rest of the world, specially between him and that person who is so important for him at this moment.

 

In short, Sheldon needs to start being proactive instead of reactive, because Amy is tired of being always the one pushing the car.

 

And I think it's important to put ourselves in Amy's shoes, after Sheldon's innocent flash-mistep she probably had "flashes" of them together in bed after their first coitus, and her asking "Wasn't it great?" and him replying: "Indeed. Now, do you know what would have made Star Wars VII even greater?"

 

 

"But I do think there's some room to play with some of the not-so-crucial stuff to teach Amy that romance movies/novels are not all that cracked up to be"

 

Koops, I'm curious, I've read a couple times something along this lines in your posts as lately, why do you think Amy needs so bad to stop thinking in romance novels? altough we have been told she dreams a bit about them, I don't see her so focused in wanting her relationship to be like that. Even in her fanfiction she wrote a quite realistic Sheldon, as I see it, the main difference was that, unlike real Sheldon, her dream Sheldon was able to say "There's no future without you" without the need to be forced to do so.

 

At the end, I think that's all what Amy really wants a this point. But that's just my opinion, of course.

Again, spot on! Sarah7, you speak out every word from my mind, and this post just makes me want to be your BFF :icon_redface:

I don't know why but the use of the word "large" made me laugh. What does that mean??? LOL.

 

I was thinking earlier that while the writers do like to end their seasons on sitcom cliche drama, they rarely follow up on it in the classic cliche way. So I sort of doubt we will have months of Sheldon groveling at Amy's feet while Amy is out and about dating. What I think would be interesting, instead, is to explore how this affects the dynamics of the gang. When Leonard broke up with Penny, Penny wasn't as integral a part of the group as she is now. Same with Howard and Bernadette. And we know that everyone in the gang has a soft spot for Sheldon and Amy. I can imagine that if Amy doesn't want to see Sheldon for a while, the girls nights will increase a lot, and maybe the guys and the girls will also start missing each other. One thing I would love is for Amy to have a girl night with Penny and Bernadette, where they try to cheer her up, and they start reminiscing of all the things they have witness Sheldon do that showed how much he loves her (like when Penny when shopping for the tiara, or Bernadette took him to get her Xmas gift). And then she start crying. And they start crying. And they have a group hug.

 

Ok, fanfic time over.

 

I also wonder whether someone is going to find that ring. 

 

I can see Amy and Penny having a long discussion about their men at the beginning of Season nine while drinking wine and eating cookie dough ice cream -

and I could see Penny finding the ring in Sheldon's desk, and while not saying anything about the ring, letting Amy know that Sheldon really is committed to her.

That is too funny!  I have had this song in my head since the finale.  It's Amy's theme song for the summer.

Everyone realizes that the 17th episode of Season 9 would be the 200th episode.   Not sure they would drag it quite out to the 200th episode...that would be one angsty season again.   Some angst...good...but the majority of a season of it...well think S6!   No thank you!  If they are back together well before the engagement...then great.  But ugh...if not and the engagement comes then...then no thank you!

Oh was it the 17th? I thought 15th! I actually did consider the possibility that they might drag it out until the 200th and have reconciliation and consummation happen all at once, but I sincerely hope not. There's only two seasons left, I don't want to spend 3/4 of a season without enjoying fun Shamy banter because they want to amp up some silly angst.

I think they'll reconcile sooner but he'll propose in 200.

Reconcile and proposal are two different things. Fully reconciled with sexual tension by Nov sweep

Engagement and/or sex for 200th episode
