“Mary will somehow find out about the tornado and will return to the United States. Probably a few hours later Sheldon will get sick in Germany for the 1st time alone and get mistaken for a visiting professor,” one fan mused. “My thoughts are based on the episode where Penny took care of Sheldon when he was sick in Season 1 where Sheldon told Penny he got sick in Germany.”

“That destroyed me, oh my gosh. I feel so terribly bad for Connie,” another said of the Season 6 finale. “Mary doesn’t even know. It was great to see Iain’s smile and actually hear him laugh with the visiting professor on the plane.”

Young Sheldon Season 7 continues on February 22, 2024.
