In the end, Sheldon Cooper made a childlike anecdote about his recent Marvel movies. Essentially, he understands that there’s a reason for Iron Man to be in a Captain America movie, although it’s only a cameo.

Sheldon may have taken this to mean his spotlight is in Los Angeles while hers is in Princeton, but hopefully, he understands it further. There’s going to be a lot more give and take for the relationship to work out.

Essentially, for Sheldon, he understands it takes a team to make up The Avengers. It’s taken Sheldon Cooper a decade to understand social subtleties, but he’s getting there. Amy may be the one to take him all the way to becoming almost normal.

Do you think Sheldon Cooper will ever come off as normal?
