Missy Calls Out Sheldon's Big Bang Theory Friends' Behavior... And She's Absolutely Right
2023/07/04

Warning! Spoilers ahead for Young Sheldon season 6, episode 19. Young Sheldon's Missy calls out Sheldon's friends in The Big Bang Theory, and she is exactly correct in her criticism. As arguably the best Cooper in the prequel spin-off, Missy has demonstrated emotional maturity and great judgment in the past. Granted that she's had some hiccups, especially when she gets emotional, she has been generally relatable, dependable, and incredibly smart. Missy show just how intuitive she is again in Young Sheldon season 6, episode 19, "A New Weather Girl and A Stay-At-Home-Coddler," when she rightfully exposed Sheldon's The Big Bang Theory friends.

Available To Stream On Netflix

Originally, The Big Bang Theory was an ensemble series focusing on all seven main characters. Over the years, however, it became increasingly clear that its true lead was always the socially-inept genius. Most of the primary storylines in the show were always about him. Meanwhile, in the rare occasions that they weren't, he still played a pivotal part in it, either as a narrative device or a source of comedy. The Big Bang Theory leaned on Sheldon's quirks for humor, but he could be very frustrating, especially when he was being unreasonable.

Missy Criticizes How Sheldon's Friends Treat Him In The Big Bang Theory

Throughout The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon had inconvenienced, demeaned, and hurt his friends over the most mundane things. Given this, it's curious why they still decided to not just tolerate him, but stay friends with him. It was Bernadette who actually explained why in The Big Bang Theory season 5, episode 21 titled "The Hawking Excitation." According to her, she and the rest of the Pasadena gang have been quick to forgive Sheldon for his transgressions because he doesn't know what he's doing.

"Sheldon doesn't know when he's being mean because the part of his brain that should know is getting a wedgie from the rest of his brain," she says.

This isn't really accurate, and the shorter-haired Missy points that out in Young Sheldon's "A New Weather Girl and A Stay-At-Home-Coddler." As Sheldon deals with feeling being left behind in life, his sister comes in and calls him out on feeling pitiful about himself. Then, Missy goes deeper in her character analysis of her brother, claiming that he uses his social struggles to always try to get what he wants. Sheldon surprisingly agrees with this assumption, essentially debunking Bernadette's explanation of his bad behavior.

How Missy Is Well Aware Of Sheldon's Manipulating Tendencies

Missy recognizing her brother's ploy is impressive, but it shouldn't be surprising. Young Sheldon has proven that she is the most intuitive in her family. When Mary was having issues at church on the heels of Georgie and Mandy's unexpected pregnancy news, she was the only one who noticed her mom's struggles. Something similar happened when Georgie was getting crucified for the aforementioned incident. Couple that with having to deal with Sheldon being her twin for years, and it makes sense that Missy understands her brother. Young Sheldon's continuity is very bad, but at least it is making up for The Big Bang Theory's poor depiction of Missy.

Young Sheldon season 6 airs Thursdays on CBS.
