April Posted February 8, 2016 Posted February 8, 2016 Again, to be fair, I don't think we've seen Amy particularly unhappy with Sheldon since their reconciliation, quite the contrary in fact. The way some of you are ranting away at this you'd think we're back to square one with their old dynamic firmly in place but in the episodes we got so far and the ones we already know about there are maybe a few times when Amy roles her eyes but we haven't gotten a Shamy 1.0 kind of fight. At. All. And yes, in this one episode Amy brought up her (from what I can tell mostly past) grievances when Sheldon is at his worst but again that is something that happened off screen and tbh I can't even tell if that's something from before their breakup or after because her example is pretty ambiguous. I mean, she mentions the Google font change but the last big change happened Sept 1st when they were still broken up. So either Sheldon was just randomly bringing it up in Dec/Jan or she was recounting an example from before their breakup. (Looking up the Google logo changes I'm kinda loving this one: "On May 24, 2014 the Google logo was updated, the second 'g' moved right one pixel and the 'l' moved down and right one pixel." because it's exactly the minuscule thing that would drive Sheldon mad. lol) Heck, she was specifically talking about a ruined date night - I always associate that with the RA. Do they even have designated date nights without an RA??? The episode after the 200th would be airing somewhen in March which would make it 3 months of them winging it. I'd love to see some sort of relationship summit to assess how they feel about that and whether or not they'd want some sort of RA back. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I do think we've been shown a lot of positive progress in their relationship and I have no doubt that Amy is having the time of her life now as indicated by the latest TR. As for her flaws, I also would love to see that explored - the Sheldon as a straight man to Amy being a bit of a weirdo kinda thing would absolutely delight me. And I guess I'm kinda seeing a bit in that scene when Amy is rubbing Sheldon's shoulder and he's shutting her down. It's not so much that I want to see Amy in a position of wanting and waiting again - but the adorable giddiness is out of place at this very moment and I'm absolutely alright with Sheldon setting her straight and being the one who's more level-headed here. If the show wants to sell me this "they help each other grow up" dynamic then please more of that because as exasperating as some of Sheldon's antics are to Amy, some of her antics and unrealistic expectations are just as exhausting to him. They are both a work in progress and I loved it in the past few episodes when they would openly tell each other if something was bugging them and it'd immediately put an end to it and/or the other made an effort to improve things. Above all else I love that this is a mutual thing. If the show keeps handling their conflicts like that I'll be very happy! Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
