Recap / The Big Bang Theory S 11 E 1 The Proposal Proposal

Go To


In the eleventh season opener, Amy responds to the cliffhanging question from last season. Meanwhile, Howard and Bernadette deal with unexpected news.


  • Bait-and-Switch: Amy walks over to Ramona, but instead of confronting her for kissing Sheldon, she thanks her because it caused him to propose.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Amy accepting Sheldon's marriage proposal was pretty obvious.
  • It's All About Me: Sheldon can't handle that Amy's colleagues are more interested in her work than in him.
    Amy: You know, these are my colleagues, and they want to talk about my work. Why does that bother you so much?
    Sheldon: Because I was there. It's like having Optimus Prime over to dinner and not asking him to turn into a truck.
  • The Reveal:
    • After the previous season ended with Sheldon's proposal, we finally hear Amy's response: It's a yes!
    • Bernadette is pregnant again.
  • Wham Episode: Not because of Amy accepting Sheldon's proposal, which was pretty much a foregone conclusion, but because of Bernadette's second pregnancy, which comes as a surprise even to her.

How well does it match the trope?
