Young Sheldon Explains A Big Bang Theory Sheldon/Amy Moment – Screen Rant

MIssy’s decision to move out to her own room in Young Sheldon season 5 explains an integral Sheldon and Amy moment from The Big Bang Theory.
Warning! SPOILERS for Young Sheldon season 5, episode 4
In Young Sheldon season 5, episode 4 titled “Pish Posh and a Secret Back Room,” Georgie (Montana Jordana) was able to finally convince his parents that it’s best for him to drop out of school. However, since he’d be working full time, he’d have to pay rent and utilities to his parents. Aside from that, he’d also have to move into the garage so he gets some sense of his newfound independence. Missy (Raegan Revord) took advantage of the situation and suggested that she takes over his big brother’s vacated room. She reasoned that she and Sheldon (Iain Armitage) can’t really share a bedroom anymore since they are growing older and would need their respective privacies. Convincing her parents was easy, but things were a little different with her twin brother.

Sheldon was scared, but he wouldn’t admit it. Even after he got all the space for his toy trains and science equipment, he was still unhappy with the new living arrangement. It took him quite a while and a few times knocking on Missy’s door at night to settle down. George (Lance Barber) and Mary (Zoe Perry) also had to give the twins walkie-talkies so he could reach out to her whenever he gets lonely at night. Having gone through this, it’s understandable why Big Bang Theory‘s adult Sheldon wasn’t simply thrilled with the idea of him and Amy moving in together. Instead, he was “excited, concerned, a little scared.” It can be remembered that when they hashed out that plan in The Big Bang Theory, it was supposed to be a temporary setup. Amy’s apartment was flooded and she needed accommodations for five weeks. After that, they’d get back to their old set-up. Considering how hard it was for him to get used to Missy getting her own room, Sheldon was afraid that it’s also going to be difficult for him when Amy moved out.
As later revealed in The Big Bang Theory, Amy’s apartment repair finished early, but she didn’t say anything about it because she was having a lot of fun spending more time with her boyfriend. It caused a brief conflict that even got Penny and Leonard involved. In the end, they all let it go, because Sheldon wasn’t really opposed to keeping their current living arrangements anyway. He just didn’t like the fact that he was being duped when, in reality, he didn’t need any more convincing that he and Amy should continue rooming together. Living under the same room may have actually also inspired Sheldon to get married. Granted that it was an unsolicited kiss from a colleague that ultimately forced him to propose, Sheldon had to realize how much fun his life has been since he and Amy moved in together to motivate him to finally take their relationship to the next level. 
With Sheldon and Missy sleeping in separate bedrooms, Young Sheldon can now progress their character arcs removed from each other. This is especially important for Missy, who had just gone through her first heartbreak. Considering her relationship woes in The Big Bang Theory, expect her to be more active in the dating scene than her twin.

Accidental movie fan who is perpetually curious, Ana rekindled her love for writing several years back and married it with everything pop culture. The result is a passionate young writer who could ramble (and of course, pen) about films and series multiple hours a day. She has a soft spot for The Lion King, old songs, and home design; is currently obsessed with old sitcoms (The Golden Girls!); and won’t dare watch any horror films although she’s (ironically) dying to see one. Though a bit late to the party and was an actual Force non-believer, she now finds the Star Wars franchise quite fascinating (fun fact: it was a crazy Jar Jar Binks/Sith theory that drew her in).
