I was attempting to go spoiler free at that point (that ship has sailed lol). I'm not trying to be a Negative Nellie either, I just wanted to give my take on the situation. I never said Amy was a terrible person because of one or two lines of dialogue. What's missing for me, is her saying with words why she does love Sheldon. They are both human with faults. I like Shamy and ultimately want them to be happy. I AM happy they are back together. Maybe I'm not in the majority, but I LIKE reading peoples different views on this couple. I often don't agree with everything I read on here, but it's interesting to see everyone's takes. Well sorry for being a "buzzkill". I knew there was a reason I don't post that often. I didn't mean you personally. As said, this was also in reaction to what was/is going on in that other thread for a while now. If I had wanted to pick your opinion apart I would have just done that. Please don't feel discouraged to post here. *offers a consoling hug* With regards to the bold part: Hearing that from her in that particular situation would have been nice and dandy, no objections. But what the scene ultimately tries to accomplish here is to have Meemaw and Amy find common ground. The way her visit went down Amy sees Meemaw treating Sheldon as a kid (and grandparents do that all the time, nothing unusual here) but naturally that makes Amy wonder if she truly knows what Sheldon is like as an adult and what she has to deal with as his girlfriend - especially since Meemaw is giving her hell the whole time. And to some extend Meemaw doesn't get it because she doesn't understand the issues that plaque Sheldon's everyday life (good lord, Google, what were you thinking!?) - but what she does know is being married to a man who could just be as stubborn and infuriating as Sheldon can be. That should be enough for both women to bond. And yet here is Meemaw quite a bit self-righteous herself because apparently she stuck it out with Pop-pop but how dare Amy stand up for herself and hurt her poor Moonpie! As much as this might have been for the right reasons in that she's worried about her grandson it's still infuriating that she's having this sort of attitude towards Amy. She could have simply talked to Amy (and Sheldon for that matter) but instead she immediately turns into Gorgon!Meemaw (thx, Wowbagger!) when Sheldon isn't looking and attacks her. So in context this all makes a whole lot of sense to me and I can't help but defend Amy here.
