And how is she an obstacle in their relationship? As far as I understood, it did no harm to their relationship. Sheldon stood up for his lady and I don't think Meemaw will try and get in their way. I've already said many pages back that I had always thought Meemaw was kinda badass, not at all the fluffy, sweet granny Sheldon made her sound like. I mean she killed a prairie dog with a gravy boat! We know that Sheldon's her soft spot, her Moonpie who's just so nummy nummy that she could eat him up. She also seems to know him really well, so she knows that he's not the easiest man to be with. She knows that being with him means sometimes helping him and calling him out and that it might be hard or tiresome for his SO. It takes a certain type of person to be with a man like that. Ya'll know how much I love Sheldon and I'm not implying that he's totally helpless, but some things cannot be changed. And he'll need a patient partner who loves him dearly. We know how perfect Amy is for her, but Meemaw doesn't. She had never met her and when they broke up, she probably heard a one-sided story about it from Sheldon. All she knows is that this is the woman who broke her grandson's heart into pieces. This is the woman, who got so tired of him once that she broke up with him. So how can she be sure that she won't get tired again, especially knowing how challenging he can sometimes be? And after 6 months of heartbreak, they get back together and I doubt Sheldon gave her a detailed report on why and how it happened. Why would she trust her? Why would she be welcoming Amy with open arms? And I don't think her trust and acceptance can be earned in one day, even if Sheldon assures her that the break up was indeed necessary. With that being said, I'm not saying that I like Meemaw's behavior or think it's all justified, just that I get why she acts like that. She has concerns and I think she might have had them even without the break up. I hope that over time she'll come around and really gets to know Amy and eventually like her. Still I'm not worried at all, I think this'll be a hilarious episode with some great, important stuff. I'm not saying Meemaw "have to" like Amy. I just hope that she does because before this episode, we know Meemaw gave her cookie recipe to Amy so I think it's safe to say she has no problems with Amy before. It's not about Meemaw or Amy. It's about the writers who somehow still are not over the break up, so much so that they feel the need to bring it up every now and then. Maybe Meemaw will like Amy, maybe not. They can let Meemaw and Amy have conflicts for a lot of reasons, but what reason did they give us? The break up. And I'm Ok with more discussion about the break up, just not in this way. Because all I can see is Sheldon acting mature and considerate and brave to talk about his heartbreak and how much he had learned from it while Amy sitting quietly next to him, acting somewhat indifferent. I want Amy to show that she's heartbroken because Sheldon was heartbroken, that though the break up is not her fault, still she feels sorry because what Sheldon had been through makes her heart ache. I want to see the 909 Amy, asking if Sheldon was doing Ok. I want the writers to either stop talking about the break up, so that us audience can make the assumption that they have already had THAT conversation off screen and make peace with the whole storyline, or to show us both sides of the story, not Sheldon saying "I was so heartbroken because of the break up. But I now know how important you are to me.", with Amy going like "Oh really? That's great. I'm so touched." Again, all of these are my wishes. I'm not saying the writers "have to" do anything.
