I’m beyond sick of this excuse. If by being his girlfriend, Amy is supposedly making Sheldon out-of-character, then he’d be a completely different person if the show even hints at Shenny. Sheldon has never been interested in her, much less attracted to her, he belittles her skills, career, intelligence, and life choices. It would be out-of-character from the get-go.
Shenny would wreck the characters simply because it’s out-of-character. They have never shown any sign of romantic interest in each other. And now, we add the fact that both Sheldon and Penny are in relationships with people they care deeply about (and probably even love).
what she said.
