A brand new Young Sheldon season 6 trailer shows Missy and Sheldon teaming up against Mary. The Coopers move on and make do with their current living situation after Georgie’s unexpected pregnancy news came out at the end of season 5. For the most part, things are going well, with the twins coping well after a tumultuous last few weeks and now back to their typical home shenanigans.
Young Sheldon season 5 brought massive changes to Missy and Sheldon. For starters, the twins finally get their own rooms, resolving a long-existing The Big Bang Theory plot hole. Despite this, it seems like their bond only got stronger. Missy, in particular, has been supportive of her brother, patiently giving him words of encouragement after he suddenly developed a fear of the future. As the Coopers slowly return to their old routines, the pair continue to deal with new challenges together.
Now, the new Young Sheldon season 6 episode 6 trailer (via TV Promos) shows them teaming up against Mary. The official synopsis for the episode titled « An Ugly Car, an Affair and Some Kickass Football » doesn’t give much away about what Missy and Sheldon want from their mother. Instead, it focuses on other plotlines in the episode, including George potentially getting another full-time job. Nonetheless, it’s still interesting to see Sheldon having Missy’s back when she tries to pester the Cooper matriarch.
Ever since Sheldon started college at East Texas Tech, his interactions with Missy in Young Sheldon have decreased, since they don’t go to the same schools anymore. Add to that the fact that most of his arcs take place in his academic institution, further alienating Sheldon from the rest of the Coopers. CBS has to make an extra effort to ensure that Sheldon remains involved in what’s happening in the household, and pairing him with Missy in this regard is a great way to do that. But instead of these brief interactions, it would be best if the family comedy gives the pair a significant storyline that could give additional context to fans’ understanding of their relationship in The Big Bang Theory.
Since neither the Young Sheldon season 6 episode 6 trailer nor the synopsis give anything away about the commotion between Mary and the Cooper twins, it’s difficult to gauge what it’s all about. Aside from that, however, one of the most interesting takeaways from what’s revealed about the outing thus far is its title, which references an affair for the first time in the show ever. Longtime fans of The Big Bang Theory and its prequel know that this is a big thing, since George’s impending cheating scandal is on the horizon. So, it’ll be interesting to see if Young Sheldon is finally addressing that in this outing.
Young Sheldon season 6 airs Thursdays on CBS.
