Back home finaly...

Meanwhile I share with you a meaningful shamy moment from last night episode. Sheldon hurt Amy and his eyes show worry for that. He did not mean to  hurt Amy's feelings  and can be aware of that.  

 

See you later :)

In my opinion it is a weakness but one that Amy didn't believe was one she had. I think she thought she was softening the blow and when she told Sheldon didn't understand why he was upset. She didn't think she did anything wrong, which is a weakness. She knows Sheldon can't read people(a fault he has admitted to) but one he does know and can read is his mother. And in actuality he was wrong about her response also, so he didn't read her as well as he thought.  Amy thought she was trying to help but actually hurt the situation more because Sheldon knew something was up right away.

 

I agree. I also read more into it. Amy has her own relationship with Mary. She's on Mary's prayer list, as we know from 9.01 when Sheldon told his mother to take her off it. They've always got on. Even Mary's mother acknowledges Mary's OK with Amy. Amy's position is undefined, though : she's not Mary's daughter-in-law, she's not family at all, but may or may not become so. Does that give Amy the right, when they're talking, to keep the truth from Mary ? I can see how Amy would be in an awkward position regarding that. I would guess many women in her shoes would decide it's the son's place to tell his own mother, but to prepare his mother for the shock so she can have her response prepared. Mary should perhaps have forewarned Amy what she was going to say to Sheldon - and we don't know whether she did or not. Informing Mary beforehand also gave her the chance to withdraw the invitation had she been so inclined so it was a fair thing to do. From Mary's POV if I'd not been tipped off  I'd have asked Amy, ' Why didn't you warn me ?'  if I was on the receiving end of Sheldon's bombshell.

Even better would have been for Amy to have discussed it with Sheldon first ! They must have known weeks ago that they were going. That way at least he'd have had the chance to put his foot down that he didn't want his mother to know. If Amy hadn't liked it she could have gone to her own mother's for Christmas. It very likely would, however, have provided an (unwanted ? )  opportunity to talk about why they were living like this now : the experiment was over; the questions of sleeping, toothbrushes, bickering, furniture and possessions were all settled; they'd decided to remain living together. So, had they specifically chosen to live in sin ( the official term in UK when I first worked in local government, now called LTHAW) ( even though no sin had taken place when they'd have arranged the Texas trip )  for the foreseeable future rather than get married, or was this an interim as it seems to have been for Missy, or had they simply each put off bringing it up ? An elephant in the room. Possibly Amy was avoiding that conversation as part of the 'issues' she wanted to sidestep and therefore acted uni-laterally.

Why did Amy put off encouraging Sheldon to tell his mother until they were approaching her house ? Why make sure he slept until then, was she afraid he'd bring it up in the hours travelling there and he'd raise too many objections ?

I'm sad on Amy's behalf that she thought Sheldon's mother liked her, but now she must be wondering if Mary really sees her as no more than a useful weirdo who can tolerate Sheldon. Shades of school, college and horny otter sauna. I could kick Sheldon for suggesting that.

Regardless of marital status, they feel very permanent now, going to visit family together on the holiday. It seemed like Mary thought of their relationship as permanent too.

- It made me smile to see Sheldon walk out of 4A with everyone else at the end of the episode, a tiny reminder that it is no longer his home. 

Me too, and the happy look Amy gave him when he said it was good to be home.

So excited too! The episode of the passionate kiss, can't wait!!

I am very curious about next taping , what will our shamy do this time as Sheldon might not move much, lol!

Well, they could spend quality time cuddling on couch, kissing, watching Netflix... :wub:

But surely they might do other things that involve the gang as well! :icon_cheesygrin:

I do hope someone who can report to us about 10.14 is going to the taping. I can't wait to find out why Emily is in it.

I have watched the episode a couple of more times and I just cant shake the fact that they had Amy spike Sheldon's juice. I thought that was in poor taste. I enjoyed the episode and was entertained, just didn't like that.

Amy spiking Sheldon's juice to get him to go to sleep was a bad choice and could have backfired... who remembers The Pants Alternative?

I don't understand why everyone is assuming Amy spiked Sheldon's drink.  All he said was that it was weird tasting juice and to me that doesn't mean she spiked his drink.  Given their fondness for herbal tea, she could have given him a natural remedy for any anxiety he was feeling, such as Tart Cherry juice or even one of those neuro-sleep drinks.

The Valentine's episode last year was 9.15. Anyway, a proposal on Valentine's Day sounds too obvious to me, it's something done thousands of times, I see something quirkier for Shamy when Sheldon propose. On the other hand, 10.14 happens exactly one year after the meemaw episode, when Amy knew there actually is a ring waiting for her finger. Might that be charm? Not really holding my breath for it, though...

Yes, she could have had used a herbal remedy indeed, but that doesn't change the fact that Sheldon didn't know that. The point to me was not the kind of substance she used (xanax or a herbal tea) but the fact that from the dialogue it was clear to me that Sheldon didn't realize at first that drinking that juice had made him sleep, ergo that there was something else in that juice. Actually, I'm not even quite sure he realized that by the end of the episode...

We might have  a shamy proposal in most unexpected time and  in most quirky way . I believe the proposal plotline is one things that writers might be working in secret, I mean, they  only coming up with a proposal episode when it feels right about being something for fans remember tenderly. They have been doing a great job in most important shamy moments and proposal is indeed one of them. They would not do a "okay" and rushed thing about something that fans have been waiting with most exciting feelings. Tbh a proposal is not what I most looking foward to seeing about shamy . Course I want it but I would like to see first they getting even better about their living together time and getting more bonded as a couple who share everything, including big decisons which would affect both. Also loved to meet Amy 's family and more about her background before the ring be on her finger.

Yeah whatever it was (over the counter herbal drug or something concocted) it knocked him out cold to the point where he didn't know that he had got off the plane or where he was. If it was me I would be worried that I blacked out and had lost some memory.

It's possible that we are making a bigger deal out of it, if you check social media and elsewhere they thought it was very funny. I still personally think it was wrong (I have a sister who had a spiked non alcoholic drink and ended up in A&E so I have a pretty down view on it from experience).

One mistake/personal thing I didn't like (IMO) in a great season for Shamy to date, I think i'll take it.

Oh, yes, that's very true...The episode is very loved on social media, and the "magic juice" seems to be also a beloved joke. Well, I'm happy for it in a way, if the writers continue to make stuff that people enjoy the ratings should remain high. Probably we are making a bigger deal out of it, as you said...still not a fan of the joke, but this was a minor bump (for my taste...) in an otherwise good season so far for Shamy!

Agree. Even most of audience might have thought it was funny, for me it was a litle  stain in such thoughtfull shamy characters  devoloping this season. But well, couples are not perfect as everybody else and I can handle with this Amy act, as the most of her and Sheldon'acts this season have been realy welI done to each other. Everyone had done things in life not corrected and regrett about them and what matters is not repeat them and understanding why it was wrong. Imo Sheldon showed Amy that she should trust him more and there are things that have to be done with both consent, like telling his mother about their living arrangements. Maybe  we see something  done or said by Amy that we could see she got better about the possibilty of her not repeat things like that, I mean, managing things by her own way wihout Sheldon 's consent, including to be helpfull about his fears as long as he get she is helping him, like  in situations of flights.

Amy did not the juicy thing to be mean, so we could not be so hard to the poor girl. I believe for the way things worked with his mother and for the way Sheldon made a few points about he is an adult as Amy for managing his life for his own that Amy won't repeat the mistake and surely Amy will proove us that she trusts more on Sheldon with a further situation in a next episode.

Maybe that person who wrote the fanletter complimenting the consent in 10x11 can write another one pointing out the issue with 10x12 and then the writers won't repeat that stupid joke and we can all forget about that. lol

But overall I rather have a season like this where the majority of the episodes are about their progress and how well they work together than what they did in many earlier seasons where there were many more setbacks with only a few little highlights sprinkled in between. Instead of 2 steps forward and 1 step back we're at 7 steps forward and 1 step back with next episode being another step forward - I think I can live with that.

Given that it's not the first time a character has 'drugged' another in the show, I am a little surprised at the reaction on here.  I mean Howard used to drug his mother all the time and I don't remember anyone saying anything about it.  And we've had Bernie drugging Howard to shut him up.  Howard's drugged Sheldon to shut him up as well.  I lost count of the times Penny tricked Sheldon into drinking alcohol.  We've even had Sheldon saying once he should have given Amy 'sleepy tea'.  So it's been done loads of times before.  Maybe it's because it was Amy who did it this time that is the reason for the reaction to it.

Not a fan of funny juice jokes, but they didn't really bothered me that much. It was a joke worth one episode and we probably never hear about it again. And the show really had far worse and recurring ones. The worst IMO were fat and death jokes about Mrs Wolowitz.
