After a noticeable lack of Amy Farrah Fowler in last week’s Halloween prank-fest, she’s back in all of her socially awkward glory this week as preparations for Bernadette’s wedding get underway. Sure enough, this episode focused entirely on Amy as she struggled with being left out of a pivotal part of the wedding festivities—shopping for a bridesmaid dress. In the midst of the drama, Sheldon has his personal boundaries nudged just a little further in his attempts to comfort Amy.
