The final episode of 'Young Sheldon' has left its viewers in despair as they witnessed the heart-wrenching funeral of their beloved character, George. As the Cooper family gathers around the open casket, we see how each member confronts the harrowing reality of loss. Missy and George Jr. step forward to bid their father farewell, embracing the painful moment. Mary, too, approaches the casket, giving her last goodbye to her husband amidst a glaring absence.

Curiously, Sheldon stands aloof, showing no emotion, refusing to approach the casket, nor shedding a single tear. In a poignant voiceover, Sheldon explains that he has buried his sorrow deep down, pretending it doesn't exist. This coping mechanism starkly contrasts with the rest of his family, who turn to religion and alcohol for solace.Iain Armitage, the young actor portraying Sheldon, sheds light on his character's unusual reaction at the funeral.

Armitage suggest Sheldon is almost incapable of beginning the grief process; he hasn't even tried. This insight prompts us to question how differently people process grief, sparking a deeper understanding of Sheldon's complex psychology.

In an interview with TV Line, Iain explained: “The thing about Sheldon is it’s less of an external stone-faced I think you know for other characters maybe that stone facade is crumbling from the outside in, for Sheldon it’s from the inside out.

“One of the first takes we did I sat down in the chair the way they wanted me to and I kind of started to let my face fall and almost not quite cry but you know kind of start to get emotional.  Steve said ‘don’t even do that it’s a thousand times more heartbreaking if we see that Sheldon can’t even begin to imagine processing or understanding that to the point where his mind won’t try it’s almost as if he’s heard them talking about the weather’ and I really liked that interpretation.”
