This thread has moved way too many pages for me to try to go back and refer to the posts I've read, so I will try to reference from memory: I think Meemaw liked Amy all along. I think she likes her now. I think the term "I don't like you" is not in reference to Amy herself, but in reference to Amy's behavior toward Sheldon. Two different things here. Some have called into question Meemaw's right to question Amy, but I think she had every right due to her bias for her grandson. She wants to make sure that her moonpie is marrying the right person. If Amy broke up with him before, because of who Sheldon is, I'm sure she wants to put away any reservations that Amy is going to leave him again when things get difficult. She's testing Amy to see if Sheldon is really what she wants. Amy telling Meemaw, "Well, maybe I don't like you" is not that she doesn't like Meemaw as a person. She doesn't like being put on the spot, but as someone said earlier, sometimes I think Amy enjoys being the bad guy. Regarding the revelation of the ring, I understood it was an accidental revelation and not intentional. Meemaw didn't intend to ruin Sheldon's surprise, but obviously because she didn't see the woman sitting next to her as just Sheldon's girlfriend, but his future bride, the ring was foremost on her mind. She wanted to stop Sheldon from making a mistake if she discerned anything that might make Amy unworthy of his consideration. I'm not surprised that Meemaw is a bit tough. Look at the daughter she raised. The apple doesn't fall from the tree, and Meemaw probably respects Amy for defending herself. It proves to her that Amy is exactly what Sheldon needs for a partner, but she just needed to be sure. By Sheldon making his defense, Meemaw knows Sheldon is not heartbroken anymore and is sure of his future with Amy as well. Everything is copacetic between all. It's a wonderful thing!
