Family drama got on everyone’s nerves on Thursday Young Sheldon – a particularly tense half hour in which George walked out after Mary a heated argument about her relationship with Rob.
Mary’s feelings for the youth pastor had become painfully clear to her husband, who was not too happy to learn that the holy man had made a home visit to her after the Church avoided their entire family. Mary insisted that she and Rob were just praying, and they… goods, but anyone who witnessed that awkward moment after Rob finished his prayer can tell you that something is brewing between the two. Just ask Missy!
George had had enough. He walked to the back door—and when Mary tried to stop him and said she’d made dinner, George turned and suggested Rob come over and eat it.
Almost as soon as George closed the door behind her, Mary got a call from President Hagemeyer. She didn’t want to meddle in family affairs, but Sheldon had asked her for help. She also concluded that he wouldn’t have done that if Mary was in control at home. That’s when Mary dissolved her.
‘You mean I’m not doing well as his mother? Because I’m doing my best to keep this family together, and I’m tired of people blaming me,” she cried. “I have half a mind to get in my car and drive on until the road is gone, then start my life over with a different name.”
Mary hung up and then Missy, hearing both of her parents’ spit and Mary’s call, came to comfort Mama.
Poor Missy had some rough days too. She had beaten a boy in Sunday school after he called the Cooper clan white trash, then jumped to high school to escape the endless parade of whispers about older brother Georgie, who had made her promise not to kill anyone else. would hit.
Mandy, meanwhile, was shunned by her parents after she told them she was pregnant – which was… before she got the chance to tell them that the father was 17 years old. Connie accompanied her to her first obstetrics appointment and offered to cover her medical expenses. As for the father-to-be, he confronted Mandy in the waiting room and begged her to let him be a part of this journey. She told Georgie he could stay, but let Connie accompany her when she went to the doctor.
