Heartbreaking moment arriving on ‘Young Sheldon’ Season 4 finale
Early in the iconic sitcom series, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ introduced us to Sheldon’s knock. It has been one of the most peculiar aspects of his quirky and unusual personality. Due to his obsessive-compulsive tendencies, Sheldon has to finish his knock, even if the person he is notifying opens the door before he finishes knocking. Sheldon often could be seen knocking at the door of his neighbour across the hallway, Penny. Sheldon also could be seen knocking before entering someone’s bedroom, like his roommate Leonard. Little did we know that the knock would be the result of a traumatic experience. The revelation turned out to be one of the most heartbreaking moments of ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
In the episode titled, “The Hot Tub Contamination”, Sheldon confessed to Penny that the reason behind his three knocks was due to an incident that happened when he was young. When he was just thirteen years old, Sheldon came back home from college because they had run out of math to teach to him. Since his mother was at bible study, he expected the house to be empty. He entered his house and heard a sound coming from his parent’s bedroom. He then opened the door and saw his father being physically intimate with another woman.
Sheldon explained that he caught his father cheating on his mother because he failed to knock long enough for his father and the other women to get their clothes on. He further clarified that his first knock is tradition. But the second and third knock is for people to get their clothes on. Even though he did not clarify, it also seems that including the person’s name while knocking is the result of childhood trauma. Sheldon also admitted that he never told anyone about his father’s affair.
Upcoming episodes of ‘Young Sheldon’
The latest episode six of ‘Young Sheldon’, “Freshman Orientation and the Inventor of the Zipper” was released on the 21st January 2021. The episode was released after a significant gap. In the episode, Mary was concerned about Sheldon, who has to go to college at an extremely young age. Sheldon’s first-day was also far away from smooth. He got a smoothie spilt all over him, a bee sting, and his pants ripped. We also got to know that Dr Sturgis got a new job at Superconducting Super Collider. But Connie is definitely not happy with it as he would have to relocate for the job.
Unfortunately, there would not be another new episode of ‘Young Sheldon’ for two more weeks. The audience will only get to see the reruns of its previously released episodes. The seventh episode, “A Philosophy Class and Worms That Can Chase You” will air on 11th February 2021. From the title of the episode, we can picture Sheldon in a philosophy class which will definitely be funny.
‘Young Sheldon’ Season 4 ending
Why is it taking so long for CBS to release the episodes of ‘Young Sheldon’? It is because the production and filming of the prequel series have been facing a delay due to the global pandemic throughout the season. Hence, CBS might be just holding off the completed episodes and releasing them all together. Even though it is slightly soon, we can expect the finale episode of ‘Young Sheldon’ to be released in some time. We can also expect the heartbreaking moment in which Sheldon found his dad with another woman to be revealed in season 4 of ‘Young Sheldon’.
Till then you can watch the previous episodes of ‘Young Sheldon’ on Amazon Prime and CBS All Access.
