Princeton is in new jersey and that is at the other side of the country right? Why is she taking her car? It Is a too long drive for a 2-3 months stay. 

Probably because it was easier to arrange an outdoor set with the car rather than an airport waiting-room...I wonder at this point if that was the tag (this morning the only ones in costume at the curtain call were Mayim and Jim); in this case maybe the scene was pre-taped (outdoors) and they did it again in front f the live audience with a fake car, as they often do in this cases...

Auto train?  If that's the case then why didn't Sheldon go with her?!

Driving makes NO sense for such a short haul.  Academics can mail stuff at a "library" rate between academic institutions.

No auto train goes East-West.

Do planes take cars like ferries do ?

Nope,

There is no "Drive" on aircraft like a ferry. We can transport cars but only a few at one time as cargo. And trust me, Its a pain in the ass!

Raj offering the room might also be a way to put the option on the table and have Sheldon refuse and try to stick with living alone. I agree that it's something I would like to see for his character and I bet he has a whole new routine and habits in 4B by now. 

I don't think they would backtrack on the living arrangements after so long and after it went so well. And especially if it's only a 3 month thing, it wouldn't make any sense story wise. 

 
 

This was exactly what I was thinking! It would be the more unexpected choice that Sheldon would turn down the idea of going back to 4A, and would be a good representation of his growth this season. Also, I honestly don't think Lenny will let him even try to move back in. They would probably want to disprove Beverly's "buffer" comments.

I've been reading through everything trying to catch up, which I still haven't entirely, but wow. Lots to process. And here's the thing I'm wondering over everything else: is it possible that through whatever drama Ramona causes or simply the fact that Sheldon is bound to be missing Amy terribly, that maaaaaybe, just maybe, Sheldon might go to Princeton himself to find Amy and propose by the end of 10.24? I'm holding onto my last shred of hope that the proposal happens in S10, because it's been 2 frickin' years of a wait, and I'm tired. I want a beautifully unique and Shamy proposal and I don't think adding 2 extra seasons makes it impossible to still do a proposal now. Just play the card, writers! You still have more cards in your deck!

I also think anything flirty or beyond with Sheldon and Ramona, or having Amy do something stupid while she's away (I think the line about not falling in love with any scientists is cute, but yet, is there a specific reason they put that line in there?) would be completely ludicrous if they went down that road, but we got blindsided 2 years ago, so I suppose anything is possible. But anything along those lines I fear would destroy the past 7 years.

I feel very rambly, but it's better than my initial angry thoughts in my car today when I first saw the spoilers. I know we just have a few tiny pieces of information right now, so I am going to try to stay chill until we are able to collect additional data. :cool: Hopefully whatever they are concocting will turn out hilarious, sweet, and amazing.

I live near Princeton,  to be precise I stay in the NYC metro area. It's almost across the country from California. Why not take a flight ? solitary  cross country road trip? We will have to wait and see .

How long would a Pasadena to New Jersey drive take ? Stopping for meals, rests, shopping, overnights and sight-seeing, a week ? Two ? There are no seas or national borders to cross. Is the speed limit still 50 mph ? People in the UK who come on quiz shows often say if they win enough money they'd like to drive across the USA. I wonder if Amy's looking forward to having a few days by herself in the car. Or perhaps she could fill the passenger seat with that gadget Sheldon rigged up when he sent a computer version of himself to work ?

You're looking at almost 3,000 miles.  That would take 6-8 days depending on how much time you could spend behind the wheel each day.  Made tougher by the fact that she would be driving alone, no one to trade off with when she got tired.

I'm not personally postive that Amy is driving there.  The taping info that we got said that Sheldon is "packing Amy's car", he could have just been simply loading her suitcases into her trunk for a trip to the airport.

At almost all US university's, most students take a summer break of 3-4 months over the summer.  The institutions themselves do not shut down as research continues year round and a light load of summer classes are offered along with educational camps and lecture/artistic series of events.

Amy may have been offered university housing on campus for the summer as part of her fellowship and would really have no need for a car.  Housing, meals and entertainment would all be at her fingertips.  

It would amuse me to no end if S/A drove to the airport together and then she left her car for Sheldon to use all summer.  A little more growing up for him.

I also was thinking that maybe he helps her load her suitcases. Amy driving makes no sense. But it also doesn't make sense if they're saying goodbye at the car if she's flying. You would expect Sheldon to go to the airport with her and she wouldn't leave her car at the airport for three months, that is insane.

I'm not excluding the possibility that Sheldon might run off to Princeton himself in the finale. I think it's unlikely, but it is a possibility. It would make sense as a token end-of-the-year crazy Sheldon reaction if Ramona is stalking him and he can't get away from her plus if he's missing Amy plus it's the thing the audience might not expect. They could even end it on the cliffhanger of Sheldon waking up in a strange bed while the gang panics that they can't find him at home and then in the premiere it pans out and it's Amy's bed at Princeton.

The tidbit that we got simply said that Sheldon told her not to fall in love with any other scientists.  It may not have been the good bye scene, just a prelude, a comment he made while helping her load up the car.

I love this idea, it reminds me that episode when Sheldon woke up in the morning, and the camera pulled away, turned out he slept with the Geology book. Till this day, this plot is one of my favorite twist on TBBT, I never saw it coming, and I laughed so hard that I almost couldn't breath. :icon_cheesygrin:

That was my first thought after reading the spoilers and doesn't want to leave the back of my mind

Not my first thought but after reading most recent @koops posts, the idea is growing on my mind and I think it would make much sense .

I mean, there must be a reason why they introduced the Princeton idea in the penultimate episode rather than the finale. Obviously they want Amy away in the finale already, so to me it's either to play with stupid cheating cliffhangers (but, again, it's only a 2-3 months thing and it makes no sense given who these characters are for them to do something stupid when they're apart only 3 months) or because the true twist is that Sheldon goes as well, or something along those lines.  

ETA: Also the fact that they suddenly take the gyroscope away from the boys. Sheldon would have nothing that ties him to Caltech work wise anymore. His only other project that we know of is the one with Amy. And as a theoretician he can work from anywhere.

I'm also really liking this idea (not enough likes to like all the posts though omg the 100 likes thing is really not enough on days with big Shamy news LOL).

With all the ingredients present it totally makes sense Sheldon would run off to Princeton. And as you said before, it could give the writers the chance to do this whole "Sheldon wakes up in a strange bed" cliffhanger without actually damaging their golden goose. I can totally see the build up with Romana Ramona (FFS this stupid name!! lol) pulling some crazy moves on Sheldon to get some piece of science or whatever, he's his oblivious self because he has zero interest but the gang is worried, we see Sheldon struggling with some decision which worries the gang even more, then the next day they can't find him, cut to him in a strange bed - BUT WAIT HE IS NOT ALONE!!?? DUN DUN DUNNNN!! Then the S11 opener with Amy snuggling up to him. lol

First I would freak out badly. Then as I saw Amy on bed I would squee like a banshee,lol!! Oh man, these two kill me anyway; onscreen, off-screen and now with hipotetical screen! I am so doomed, hehe! At least we have this thread  to make the writers no  sense seem to have some sense after all! :)

I agree. I'm not as optimistic as to raise my hopes up to the point to imagine Sheldon running to Princeton to propose, but this possible cliffhanger has TBBT-writers written all over it, LOL!

I wonder why they wrote the gyroscope project off, too; I don't think, story wise, that might  have something to do with Ramona or with Sheldon blabbing at the Texan bar, as many suggested. It's not uncommon for the Army to classify a project at some point. I can totally see that the guys have come to a point in the realization of the prototype where they need some more detailed (and classified) specifics, so Colonel Williams might have decided that it was better to take the project off their hands. But, as a matter of fact, that frees Sheldon's schedule...

I'm totally fine with them taking the gyroscope away. As long as they don't take the quantum neuroscience away :icon_wink:

Like I said in the discussion thread if the gyroscope project ended I wouldn't be mourning its loss. I do wonder what might happen to the Shamy project though, perhaps work might be delayed on it? Unless Amy's work at Princeton is kind of a way tied to it? If it's a big project she is doing there separate from her project with Sheldon she might not have the time to do both and obviously the Princeton work should come first. So maybe ultimately we see the project between them come back some time in Season 11?

On a side note this idea raised of Sheldon actually going with her does interest me and would be open to it.

I think the writers just got bored of that project and decided to be done with it. It is boring, after all. Maybe they feel like they've milked the Shelnard/Howard scenes enough and don't want to have them stuck without Raj in episodes for another season.

As for Sheldon running off to Princeton, it sounds too good to be true. I'm not sure about the writers making a cliffhanger with Sheldon and Ramona either. It sounds like she'll be back as a villain, sort of.

The title is the Gyroscopic Collapse which sounds negative so maybe the guys do lose the project. Possibly because of Ramona. Or I guess she wants to get involved with the Shamy project now that Amy is gone.

As for s11, the writers might want to have Sheldon move back with Lenny as long as Amy will be gone and will want to milk the trio stories so Amy could be light in the beginning of s11.
