'Big Bang Theory' Boss Explained Sheldon Plot Hole In Finale

The Big Bang Theory wrapped earlier this year, much to the dismay of longtime fans.

But at least we will always have the memories, and some new ones thanks to Young Sheldon.

And while it ended on a good note, there is one plot hole that came about once the show 'Young Sheldon' started.

But thankfully, it's not super controversial, which is great.

At the end of 'Big Bang Theory' Sheldon gives his Nobel Prize speech.

He thanks all the people that have made a difference in his life.

But now that 'Young Sheldon' has begun, it created a plot hole.

But a lot of people may not have noticed it!

So that's why we are here to talk it out with you.

There's a character in 'Young Sheldon' who becomes very important to Sheldon.

And that is Dr. Sturgis.

He's originally a pen pal but they become very close and enjoy each other's comfort.

And in 'The Big Bang Theory' Sheldon finally wins a Nobel Prize.

Which obviously was something we've been waiting to see for a really long time!

During the speech he mentions "all the men in his life."

Which is a super nice sentiment, obviously, but there's one thing that stands out after watching Young Sheldon.

Dr Sturgis, who is a big part of young Sheldon's life, is not mentioned in his Nobel Prize speech.

But the showrunner did explain why that is.

It was mostly about being respectful toward what TBBT built.

"Sheldon's speech was intended to honor the history of Big Bang."

He continued by saying:

NBC

"It didn't seem like the right time to invoke specific characters from Young Sheldon. He mentions 'all the men in his life', which would include Dr. Sturgis." Steve Molaro said.

So, in the end, it all makes sense in a way.

But the bigger question is, was Dr. Sturgis watching him give the speech and get offended?

What do you think about the speech?

NBC

Do you think he should have been included in it, or it was perfect the way it was?
