I have always loved the determined side of Penny about things. And she is a shammy shipper since always too. Cant get over of Penny power in this scene! Amy has to know how her bestie did her best about protecting shamy. And so did Bernie.I sense a great girls talk moment somewhere in s11 :) 

I, too, am a willing soldier in Penny's Army.

I forgot to add this to my post after I saw the episode:

What did everyone think of the Penny and Bernie exchange at the kitchen island? Not going to lie I laughed so much at Penny's comment about has Amy awakened the sexual creature in Sheldon and wondering if that means he could stray. Bernie's reaction was hilarious. I think Melissa's facial expression and sounds did it for me lol.

Usually I am critical of Shamy mocking, but that I can let it pass if done with humour and done well. That was one of those times when Shamy being a bit unusual or seen as a couple of weirdos can be funny. When done in the example above I have no problem with it.

Same here, I had no problem with that Bernie and Penny scene as it was nicely done humour speaking.  It reminded me the episode Amy spreads the rumor shamy had sex and Penny told Raj, lol!

I would say it is harmless  mocking :)

Ps: I deleted earlier post because I got a bit off the topic about your question.

yes, the 'commitment phobic' remark always puzzles me about Sheldon, the Man of Many Contracts. Sheldon takes commitments extremely seriously. More than most. That is precisely why he is so wary of taking on new ones. Amy is the opposite. She's impulsive. She hurtles onto new things without thinking them through and is happy to abandon them the instant she has doubts. Look at the moving in episode. One bad night and Amy wanted to call the whole cohabitation experiment off and had to be manipulated into continuing #forscience.

YES!  The contracts thing is totally about commitment.  

Speaking of which, this is one of my favorite RA scenes:

Everyone has mocked both Leonard and, especially, Howard.

Turnabout - fair play.

oh yes, I would not call Amy a commitment phobe either! I meant really that she is likelier to not really think about what a situation means, and then go 'ohssshhhiiiit' when she hits the water, so to speak.

True dat.  But everyone suffers on that front in comparison to Sheldon.

Not that there was any doubt in my mind before, but it's nice to get official confirmation that the writers' minds are on our same wavelength. There's not going to be any stupid drama, with Sheldon trying to hide things from Amy and no question that he was anything but innocent in all this.

Not that all the fans will agree with them. Some won't even know he said this, but yes, if you know it then it confirms what the intent was. But there still may be some drama. Sheldon has to tell Amy the truth about what happened. How he didn't believe that was Ramona's intention, even when he was told, but that he was wrong and he's sorry for not listening and that he knows now for sure he wants no one else but her.

It reminds me of a story I once read about a woman whose boyfriend broke up with her, and her friends were fixing her up with other men. She kept telling them that it felt so weird to kiss someone else, and that she still missed her ex. I can see Sheldon saying that it felt totally weird to have someone else kiss him.

YES! That was a great scene. Melissa's sense of comedic timing has been almost perfect this year.

Loved it! Reminded me of Penny's reaction to Sheldon's "full pubis" comment once lol

I just saw the episode and I actually liked it. I was a little anxious about it at first, but the truth is it was funny and it contained the question many shippers have wanted Sheldon to ask for years so, job done for season 10, I suppose. E23 is still my favorite though, but if things go according to plan in the next season, 01/11 might just be the greatest Shamy episode ever. Here's hoping!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all you lovely shippers who have made this season unforgettable. I sincerely hope you have a great hiatus (I won't be here as much, since mid-term exams are staring soon) and that you don't worry too much. Thank you to all who have provided spoilers and who take the time to write fanfics and create fan art.

Season 10 aka best Shamy season ever, would not have been the same without all of you. See you in the fall!

 

Good luck for your mid-term exams, @Riley7. And it will be always a pleasure to know what you think about shamy everytime you will be able to be around :)

I struggle with finding spare time to be on the forum these days, but it has been a joy to read all the commentary from the S10 finale and to see old avatars make a reappearance.

It has taken two years for the events from the S8 finale to unfold as we watched the ring appear and disappear, get noteworthy mention, seemingly forgotten, and now hopefully it's grand finale out of it's velvet boxed enclosure onto Amy's finger.  

I got to thinking that perhaps, with Sheldon's eidetic memory and tendency to compare similar things and events, that perhaps Ramona's kiss triggered a memory action in which Sheldon recalled the events of his initial attempt to propose to Amy, where his efforts were halted by his witnessing her being kissed by her own admirer.

It is in this moment he remembers he has a ring.   With wide open shocked eyes, he is remembering, feeling betrayed by a friendly colleague and his own naiveity, and contemplating his next move, confident more than ever that Amy is his life and soul.

Sheldon becomes quite comfortable with status quo and sees no need to change what is working.  Things have been going so well with them living together and Amy being his girlfriend.  Even when Sheldon initially felt threatened about Amy leaving for Princeton and fearing he was going to lose her, he didn't come back to the apartment with the ring but a suitcase and a desire to show her physically how much she means to him.  He didn't see a need to put a ring on her finger to keep other smart, tall, and blonde scientists at bay. 

It isn't until Ramona crossed a line that Sheldon calmly stepped away from the situation with the realization that a change in his relationship status with Amy is not only necessary to put their relationship under "lock and key" but it is what he wants. 

Amy knows Sheldon.  Had she not known that Sheldon has had the ring and contemplated giving it to her before, I could see her asking questions.   However, for concern that she will wreck his resolve, I hope she will say yes and ask questions later.  In the end, I think it speaks volumes about Amy in that Sheldon had an opportunity in front of him but calmly fled the situation.  I think Amy will be proud of Sheldon, not angry.  Maybe deep down she will silently applaud the events that led Sheldon to her door while cursing Ramoma outwardly.

Yeah, I'll be disappearing into hiatus-ness and Game of Thrones soon too, but man! What a way to go. :) I hope you all have a great summer and I'll see you around Comic Con time (assuming they're going). 

Hope to see you around more from now on :)

I really liked Amy's reactions during her Skype sessions with Sheldon over the Ramona situation.  You could tell she was bothered by it.  She could tell Sheldon wasn't reading the cues.  

She could have given Sheldon a lecture.  She could have snapped back when Sheldon accused her of accepting an inappropriate call from Leonard while Ramona is sitting right there in their apartment alone with her man.  Rather than making herself the bad guy by putting herself between Ramona and Sheldon, she acted wisely in relying on their friends to assist with the situation.

Amy knows Sheldon is unaware.  She also knows he is lonely, and for her to outright tell him he can't have a "friend" while she is away would have her come across as jealous and not trusting Sheldon to be alone without her.  It would totally negate her efforts to convince him it was okay to let her go away.

In her wisdom, she interrupts Ramona's visit by telling Sheldon he is tired and needs to go to bed.  He trusts her guidance and proceeds with ending the evening.  In the mean time, the ever so awesome Penny and Bernadette do their thing to help intervene.

This is what knowing ones mate is about and what friends are for.   That is another reason why I don't think Amy will be angry or say no.  

I think it would be hilarious if Penny and Bernie Skype Amy in a panic over Sheldon gone missing, thinking he is off somewhere with Ramona.   Sheldon and Amy are in kahoots over some experiment to see how far they will go to rectify the situation, with the group somehow ending up in NJ where Shamy surprises them with their announcement.  It would be a nice way to incorporate a gang road trip to Princeton.

My thoughts were that the gang discovers that Sheldon is missing and that Bernie & Penny go find Ramona to let her know they are on to her and what did she do or say to him (before calling Amy or his mom). Then Ramona tells them she made a pass at him and he left. And they get a skype from Amy.   Just my random thought...

What if the show opens with Sheldon missing, and Ramona has fled as well, and the gang doesn't know where either of them went. That could be handled for most of the ep and it gives a lot of possibilities for the other characters to react to Sheldon's disappearance. Then at the end of the ep we could get Amy's answer.

Question for those in the audience, and/or the unspoiled : When you saw Sheldon's plane taking off, where did you think he was going ? When it was landing in the dark, did you guess it was New Jersey or did you wonder if it was Texas ?

I just have to say that, I had dropped the towel with the show, and despites the funny stuff I was only watching it sometimes, but when I saw THAT PICTURE I didn't freaked out. I only freaked out when I saw the entire episode.

Apperantly, I am a drama-like person, because it all made me (all of us, for sure) so excited to know what comes next, but at the same time I'm like "oh no, this is like 2015 hiatus and season 8 all over again!" (or was it season 9 and 2016? I don't remember quite right). I guess everybody remembers how tough and overwhelming it was. Every episode with a shattered hope (can you feel the drama through the screen that you're looking at? lol)

What I'm trying to say is: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Have a great summer too, @koops!  I am myself a huge Game of Thrones fan :)

Looking foward to reading your shamy thoughts as soon as you could be back!
