Don’t get me wrong, I really love The Big Bag Theory; however, I think they made a mistake.
Last week, before the show aired on Thursday, it was announced that Sheldon and Amy would get back together (well, actually, hook-up, not the same thing). And that just took any emotional weight the end of Thursday’s episode had.
*Minor Spoilers Ahead*
At the end of Thursday’s TBBT, Sheldon told Amy he just wanted to be friends, but we already know that on December 17, they are back together. So, even though we see Amy crying, there is no emotion invested into us, the viewers, because we know there’s a happy ending soon. All the tension has been released.
It just seems odd, to me, in a world where Glenn’s fate [on The Walking Dead] can remain a mystery for weeks and many shows and movies keep plots tightly guarded secrets that one of the most popular shows on TV would let the wind out of its sails.
To be fair, though, the news did get a crap ton of press.
