Episode 3 of Young Sheldon Season 7 saw fun new developments. As Missy and Sheldon fully embrace their teenage rebellious spirit in their respective ways, Georgie and Mandy revamp their romance. But they are not the only ones. Mary has a hot love affair in Germany, while George is pretty hunky dory back in Texas. As for poor Meemaw, she has been having a rough time since losing her house to a tornado that hit their town a short while ago.

Missy & and Sheldon rebel in teenage glory with surprising outcomes in Young Sheldon Season 7

Twins Missy and Sheldon are two peas in a pod. Despite being poles apart in terms of intelligence and personality, both enter their teenage rebellious phase at the same time. While Missy spends more and more time with Taylor, while letting her father George think Taylor is a girl, Sheldon is sneaking behind Mary’s back and gallivanting all over Europe via trains.


However, all lies are caught sooner or later. But here lies the irony. One of the most intelligent humans on the planet and a physics prodigy gets stranded at a station thanks to a tempting strudel and must walk 18 kms back to Heidelberg. As for his street-smart twin, she manages to not only handle the lie with ease but also add another to the mix by making Taylor gay. She even gets to shut her bedroom door to make out with him, while George prides himself on being ‘open-minded.’

Mary’s German love affair in Young Sheldon Season 7 Episode 3

Mary plays a much chiller version of herself in this episode, even letting Sheldon think he got away with his lie about going to the library. When a bedraggled and shoeless Sheldon returned home, she decided to let him simmer and suffer in his guilt instead of chastising him for going behind her back. The credit may lie with her American boy toy in Germany, after all.

Since international call rates are expensive, George and Mary decide to write each other letters, which end up rejuvenating their marriage and adding an exotic touch to it. Thanks to their postal exchange, the two reminisce about old memories and begin appreciating one another almost like old times while sharing their daily adventures in Germany and Texas.

Georgie and Mandy revamp their relationship, while Meemaw and Dale come to an agreement

Georgie gets inspired by his father’s ‘cheapskate’ albeit romantic way of communicating with his mother and decides to write a letter for Mandy. Scared of making atrocious spelling errors, he writes his creepy, immature but loving heart out in simple words. As a result, though Mandy is initially appalled, later she is impressed enough by Georgie’s efforts to invite him to join her in the shower.

Of course, they forget to lock the door and George barges in on them, but who will not giggle over the awkward encounter? As for Meemaw and Dale, the duo clashes the entire episode over guitar practices, nightly farts, and nostril invasions before finally reaching common ground. After all, they do want to cuddle and sleep together at night, without all the snores and stinky flatulence between them.
