“The Big Bang Theory” Season 9 sure arrived with a good number of twists and turns, to keep us on the edge of our seats. Shamy fans were probably shocked out of their wits when Sheldon turned Amy down in episode 9 of the current season.

Just to recap, we saw Amy and Sheldon at their Thanksgiving aquarium trip, where Amy expressed how much she has missed being with Sheldon. On the other hand, Sheldon reveals to Leonard and Penny that he is all for sharing a friendly relationship with his ex-girlfriend and wouldn’t want anything more. So, fans were probably waiting for Sheldon’s response with bated breath when Amy confessed her feelings.

“I really enjoyed spending this morning with you,” Amy said. “I was thinking that maybe I’m ready to be your girlfriend again.”

“Amy, I excel at many things,” Sheldon replied, “But getting over you wasn’t one of them. I think I need to be your friend.”

It looked like everyone waiting for Shamy to happen in “The Big Bang Theory,” may have been hurt by his response. However, it appears on the surface that Amy may have taken his response in her stride and started dating again. A promo photo shows Amy dining with Dave portrayed by guest star Stephen Merchant, as shared by International Business Times.

But Shamy fans shouldn’t lose heart as the promotional video of the episode features Amy and Sheldon getting back together! Take a look:

If that wasn’t all it appears that the two will finally be sealing the deal, so to say! According to CBS, on the December 17 episode, the couple may just indulge in some action under the sheets.

“The Big Bang Theory” Executive Producer Steve Molaro told CBS, “After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship, and we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes.” Looks like some exciting times lie ahead for our favorite couple!

Catch the “The Big Bang Theory” on Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
