Amy really learning how to deal with Sheldon. But for all the agreements they have and make, still have their inconviences between them. They, and especially Sheldon still have to learn some empathy and dealing with feelings, especially expressing it in the right way. Lenny the imo symbolic couple of passion, but also unorganized, chaotich, impulsive; running into situations and also big fights. Suddenly the RA makes sense. A couple can´t survive only on passion. Agreed 100% with the bold, but neither can it be on deception, and this is what I had issue with in this episode in regards to Shamy. First of all, the fact that Amy gave Sheldon a special juice in order to tolerate traveling with him just out right rubs me the wrong way. The fact that Sheldon is okay with it, is even more bothersome. I get that Amy has to sometimes "trick" Sheldon to keep him calm, but I thought this was going too far unless she let him know ahead of time of her intentions, which it doesn't seem she did. Also, why put it on Sheldon to spill the beans to his mother about their living situation, if Amy has gone behind his back and already done it? Sheldon has his immature flaws, but Amy is not painting a pretty picture of herself in my book. If nothing, I'm surprised Sheldon doesn't have a complex wondering if he can trust her at all. Then there is Mary. While I did find her line comical about Sheldon being able to name 1,000 different trains by the time he was three years old but never imagining any girl would want to get on board, I did find her remarks to be inappropriate. So, Sheldon has a "special situation." I guess she was just being truthful, but I certainly can understand now where Sheldon gets his mean streak and tendency to insult others from. That Sheldon caught on to the fact that his mother was indirectly insulting Amy, too, shocked me to no end. What Mary did tonight was show that she is a Christian who is perfectly capable and fine with deviating from her own values when it suits her to do so. At first, I think Sheldon was upset that he didn't get to utilize the counter arguments he had rehearsed in response to the Bible lecture he expected, but I genuinely think he was truly hurt by what his mother thought of him. ....and that is what ticked me off about the episode tonight. Instead of giving Sheldon an opportunity to show his mom how much he has grown since living with Amy, TPTB put Sheldon in probably the least mature setting I've ever seen him in. I did not find it humorous at all to see him coming out of his room with tidy whities and flippers talking through the darn fly. Furthermore, if I were in Amy's position, I'd be rethinking the sex appeal that I find in the man and be considering Mary's comments about his "specialness" and if I really want to be a part of it. Come on! They just had a wonderful birthday redo showing Sheldon being the man Amy has always wanted, and then they do this? The conversation in the car was a welcome break from the shenanigans. I appreciated Sheldon calling Amy his "mate," and he made some very good points. Amy calling out that they both have short comings, and Sheldon's inability to read feelings was spot on. Sheldon does need to take some interest in her family, and I do believe Amy would appreciate it if he did go behind her back and stirred things up sometimes, if only to show how much he cares. Nonetheless, her expressions were absent of an apology but a means to attempt to justify her actions. Sheldon has gotten better about apologizing. I want Amy to apologize more for when she messes up. ...and therein lies the problem for me, and I've made mention of this in the past. To me, Amy comes across sometimes as if her stuff don't stink and Sheldon is lucky to have her because she puts up with him. I hated it during her discussions with Meemaw, and I hated it tonight. The fact the writers threw Mary's comments in to reaffirm that she is shocked Sheldon is mated to a woman due to his difficulties, when apparently she came into existence as a result of a similar relationship between her own mother and father just makes my blood boil. When I compare what I saw in Mary tonight and what I saw in Meemaw, I think I'm on Meemaw's side. At least Meemaw supports her moonpie, because she was married to a man her grandson takes after in his behavior. To her, it's not about Sheldon having a girl, but one who is right for him. So, my question is, does Mary really like Amy, or is she just accepting her because she is so elated Sheldon has a girl? Please, my fellow Shamies, don't hate me. I still ship Shamy, but in this one area, my blood boils all over with disappointed expectations. I would have liked to have seen an episode where Mary and Amy bond over their love for Sheldon, talking about his gifts, learning a tidbit about Amy's family, seeing some affectionate hand holding between Shamy in front of Mary, etc. I hated the opportunity was used to call into question why Sheldon is even in a relationship at all, other than his girlfriend is weird and is skilled in "trickery" so she can tolerate him.
