[Spoilers]Shamy S8 Thread

Ok, I gotta admit, this is making me nervous. Michy (or someone else who was at the taping), can you explain how this scene was filmed?

I feel like I'm suspending logic completely by letting this worry me, but knowing that there was some lovin' coming has seriously been getting me through these last couple weeks of my credential program and I will NOT be a happy camper if that scene is cut.

Ok...calming down now.

 

Like kerry said already, it would really make no sense for them to cut out the kiss.  What Michy was referring to was, they filmed the whole scene, starting with the kiss, and then when they did the second take, they started it just after the kiss had been broken.  They're not going to start the episode without showing the kiss at all though, since it was shown in the promo on tv, and also because I really don't think they would do that to us.  So my guess is, they're going to use the take we all got to see at the taping.  The only other option would be that they refilmed it afterwards, but I don't see why they would.  In any case, we'll be getting a kiss, and I'm pretty sure they'll use the footage we saw.

 

Thursday cannot come fast enough!

So, not to belabor the point, but, did the second take start with the very end of the kiss or did it start with the dialogue? I wonder why they broke up the scene that way...

Ok this is SO not the same thing as the hug earlier in the season. That wasn't part of the plot.

this make-out IS part of the plot. I don't see it getting cut ESPECIALLY since its in the promo

Confused how anybody could think its getting cut when its part of the CBS promo.

And even it its cut-short (which is different than being cut) I kinda would expect this. And they probably filmed it previously to get more close-ups, but filmed it live to get the audience reaction (which from our girls was HUGE).

Relax everybody, on this one, I think you're worrying way too soon and over something not needed.

All will be ok...Santa Molaro says so!!!

ho ho ho

It started with the dialogue.  Like maybe they just felt like one take for the kiss was enough.  Even though we obviously wanted more.  ;)

I don't think I could stay unspoiled if I wanted to. I so wanted to but I am too curious of a person. Once I found out the information was out there I now need to read it.

Me to. I'm to damn noisy. If I know the info is out I gotta know

To me, it'll be very telling to know when season 9 picks up in relation to the finale.  If it's a few weeks or a couple of months later, I imagine they'll show Shamy having been on a trial break-up, in which case I see it as a longer arc with them getting back together during one of the sweeps periods.  If it's less than that, I think Amy will still be trying to figure it out and they'll be back on track (a train track to relive their first real kiss?), with possibly some adjustments, in the first couple of episodes.  Based on the Lenny cliffhanger, I'm leaning toward a much shorter time--possibly even the next day.  There's no way the writers are gonna skip over all the drama with them, which may end up benefiting our beloved Shamy.

If the Shamy season 8 finale makeout scene got reshoot or edited heavily..... the ensuing RIOT will be *insert superlative negatory adjective here*

 

I heard that it wasn't.

 

Just FYI ;)

Sheldon said "I am not turned on, ergo I am not sexually attracted to you" though he didn't use those exact words, the words he used contained "The Flash".

In light of this revelation, of course Amy needs to evaluate. Would any of you bind yourselves to a person who didn't find you attractive?

Now, I believe S9 will be Sheldon proving Amy wrong. After all, this man does have a pathological need to be right! Sheldon driven sexy times ahead I predict.

Hoo boy! :)

I think that the timing of the beginning of season 9 will be determined by how the writers decide to handle with Lenny's wedding...it would be really strange to me that they don't show it or that they decide to put off screen the reasons of its delay, but...who knows? Anyway, if the season starts the very day of the finale, then shamy's break will be very short, maybe they solve everything in the first episode, but if they start after some weeks from the finale...i guess we will see Sheldon fighting a lot to set things up. I don't know why....but this latter scenario seems more likely to me, it's more about "drama"!

I predict no Lenny wedding (that'll come later) and Sheldon offering physical proof that Amy is very much mistaken in her thinking throughout S9.

Mind you, I've yet to be right.....a seeress I am not.

If the show were in experimental mood, it could play with the timeline in S9 and/or leave it up in the air whether Lenny did really get married or the ShAmy are together or still on a break.

 

I hasten to say that both developments are major enough that I would prefer to not deal with them in that way. Plus, with all due respect, I don't really see the writers experimenting...

The start of Season 9 could open with Penny and Leonard driving back from Vegas after not deciding to get married, then the credits play and there's a time lapse of several weeks. Alternatively, they are already at the alter in the cold open and Penny decides (based on Leonard's confession) she can't marry him yet - "I'm sorry, Leonard, I thought I could handle it but I really can't. I'm sorry." - before walking out and then there's the time lapse.

I don't particularly want to see it play out with a time lapse, but they may do it like that to address the Lenny wedding before skipping ahead so they can still have Shamy on a break for a few weeks.

You're right Teletalk101, it could be a very good way to "close" Lenny's wedding plot for the moment (I also think it is quite unlikely the writers decide for a lonely Vegas wedding for one of their Golden Couples, it will happen in a bigger form sometimes in Season 9/10) and still to keep "drama" up in Shamy's plot....Maybe one of the main themes this new  season will be showing Sheldon getting phisical and it will take some time to fully develope the plot!

I am hedging my bets on this for the premerie: the open with Lenny at the threshold of getting married they both ask each other if this is what they really want and both agree that no it is not. (The were going to get married in. Vegas! Oh wait this is a bad idea is a sitcom cliche that I wish they would retire. Cue a B plot involving Howardette aand Raj. Then Kenny arriving home and seeing Sheldon already deeply mired in whatever obession he will have to try and replace Amy. Lenny ask him what's going on he explains about the break (not about the ring that will not be mentioned again for a while.) they implore him to stop wallowing in self pity and go talk to her. He says that he is respecting her wishes and is not going to try and contact her and give her spac to think. Penny sits him down and asks him when he ever respected any ones wishes. Cue Howerdette comic B plot . Coming back from that we see Amy in her apartment doing a sad What a sad Amy would do (I would love for her to play he harp) Sheldon knocks on her door. She answers it and tells him she does not want to talk to him, she is still upset, she thought he understood she needed a break. Sheldon says he does not want one and begs her to tell him why she is doing this after they have had so many strides. She admits that she wants him, like really wants him and that she finally can see that he is never going to feel that way about her. That she is not going to force him to be with her if he does not feel that way about her, so she needs time to think if she can continue on with their relationship knowing that need will never be met. Sheldon looks stricken and looks like he is thinking hard. Go back to Lenny for a while and the Vegas fall out. Go back to Shamy Sheldon tells her that he does want her like that, more than she knows , that due to his phobias he has been taking it slow, but wants to try more. Amy gulps more? Tag scence of Howerdette.

From Molaro's interview I get the feeling that they know exactly how 9x01 will start off and I am leaning more towards a same day/next day thing, mainly because of Lenny.If the cliffhanger had been just about Sheldon and Amy, I could see them picking up in "real time" a few months down the line, but not with that Lenny plot still hanging in the air. I can't honestly imagine having them marry off-screen and in Vegas (unless S9 goes down some horrendous route of Lenny getting married off-screen in Vegas, then divorcing, then getting married again at the end of the season/season 10, which I just can't imagine they would do), and I can't imagine them not showing the audience the moment they decide not to marry (or do marry). My hunch is that they will come back to Pasadena because of Sheldon and/or Amy calling them in distress over their 'break' and Lenny will use it as an excuse to postpone the wedding, and kind of be in denial about the fact that that's not really the reason. And then we will see Lenny solve whatever issues they have on-screen during the course of the season, with the actual wedding happening at some point in S9. I don't think either couple will properly split, not even just for a short time.

@koops completely agree with you. In fact the more interviews like this surface the more I think they have the major arc already plotted out for next season at least. I've run several possible scenarios in my head for how season 9 will open and the one you outlined above is the one that keeps coming back as not only most likely but also most logical from a writing stand point.

One possible scenario is that the gang takes off after Lenny, not wanting to miss the wedding.  In the car on the way there, Sheldon does or says something to convince Amy that the two of them are on the same page.

Koops, I agree too.  In fact, I've been saying that one of the surface reasons Lenny doesn't marry is they get a call from Sheldon who tells them that Amy left him....and they go to take care of their sutto baby.  (but its only a surface reason because towards the end both Penny & Leonard realize that was impulsive and agree to start planning a traditional route wedding). 

 

I don't know if Shamy will be wrapped up in just 1 episode, but by episode 3 I believe they will be back on track.  Won't be too long.  I kinda don't want a rush to get them back and him proclaiming his love & future plans to her right off the bat.  Kinda like his train trip did more good that hurt in the longrun, I want this "breathing" period to be the same.  I kinda want it to hit Sheldon (and Amy a bit too).  The train trip proved to be a big push for the Shamy relationship emotionally.  And Sheldon was allowed to have his "take a step back" time.....and now its Amy's turn in a way.  Some complain that she is only a pawn to the Sheldon character's growth, but her calling this breathing period IS bringing her needs & character development out too.
