Young Sheldon dealt with abuses at home by putting Veronica so intensely into the Cooper life once again. The way everything is handled is sensational, and shows Mary’s love for her neighbor and how protective George is, but the focus is on Georgie and her feelings for her friend.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Veronica’s mother’s boyfriend is an abusive man and she can’t stand to stay at home anymore, opening up the drama for the Cooper. It’s just that everything is treated in such a sensitive way that even Georgie’s feelings are shown in a legal way, like him cleaning the room and crazy to welcome her home.
Sheldon questions what’s wrong so innocently and she opens up with metaphors that he understands what she’s going through, while Missy has incredible moments with her. It’s nice to see the interaction of the two, the way they talk about growing up, making commitments and enjoying childhood.
George is still forced to defend the girl when his mother’s boyfriend shows up at her door to force her out. He takes it out with a punch to the face.
Meanwhile, Dr. Sturgis re-enacts his first meeting with Meemaw just to propose. It’s just that she doesn’t want to relate to another the way she lived with her husband, and that makes him sad, which makes her announce their relationship in the newspaper, even if she doesn’t have the marriage commitment he expected.
Young Sheldon I knew how to put minor plots around such an interesting and well-covered topic, but which I hope will be shown again in the next episodes.
