Big Bang Theory recap: Immense love and care for her grandson pulled Meemaw to Sheldon’s apartment. With a view to meet Amy and warn her against any further relationship with Sheldon, Meemaw had a fixed agenda in mind. As exchange of words started between the two, Meemaw expressed her lack of trust towards Amy. Disappointed with their recent episode of breakup, Meemaw’s use of harsh words and blunt theme formed an interesting sight. Depiction of her straightforward nature offered the perfect justification of Sheldon’s usual behavior! Though Meemaw’s conduct was filled with shades of rudeness, it depicted concern and worries for her grandson. Realizing his emotional nature and sensitive trait, she did not want any similar troubles in the future. With this, as Meemaw bombarded Amy with her observations, analysis, conclusion and decisions, Amy’s reaction to the entire phase was totally amazing.

While Amy defended their relationship and answered back every concern with confidence, her clear and satisfactory answers offered an insight into the seriousness of their bond. Without any essence of doubt or defeat, as Amy stood for their love, this conversation was certainly one of the best moments of the season. Though Meemaw was unhappy with her arguments and justification, she sensed seriousness in Amy’s love.

Delighted by their genuine affection for each other, Meemaw’s consent brought a wonderful end to their conversation. A significant development for Sheldon, dearest grandmother’s positive view coupled with Amy’s firm support brought happiness and joy to an otherwise serious nerdy mastermind.

Though Sheldon presented strong views on love, his unusual sarcastic comments, weird comparisons and funny conduct retained his true essence throughout. As Sheldon, Amy and Meemaw formed the primary players of this episode, the story had little involvement of other characters. With no significant participation of Leonard and Penny, their absence for a long time has been one of the lowlights of this season. As the plot is focused on Sheldon’s love tale, Leonard and Penny’s married life has been pushed to the backstage.
