This story is still developing, and I am posting for the record:
This evening, my friend David referenced an episode that he particularly liked of the TV show Young Sheldon. The rest of us listening to him had no recollection of such an episode, and we all have seen all the aired seasons at least twice. So my friend Chad Googled the show and found that the only description of such an episode is one that will air next week, Nov 12, 2020.
Yet, David had seen the episode. He was confused by our confusion. So I asked him to type out the details he remembered from the episode. Here they are, exactly as he typed them:
“Young Sheldon volunteers at a train museum and gets let go, because he knows too much. Sheldon’s tomboy sister gets her period while going to her baseball game. Dad has to help her by getting products at a pharmacy. Sheldon’s mom watches Roadhouse and bonds with older son about the movie.”
I know David is honest. Nor does he seem to have any interest in time slips. But just to cover all bases, I Googled some key words to see if I could find a synopsis with the details he gave. As of this evening, this is CBS network’s synopsis of the Nov 12 show:
“Sheldon gets a summer job at the local train museum. Also, George and Missy bond when Missy embarks on a new stage of womanhood, and Georgie discovers Mary's guilty pleasure.”
Also, here is a link to a detailed speculation of next week’s preview. https://meaww.com/young-sheldon-season-4-episode-2-preview-george-missy-womanhood-period
And another site with the CBS preview video: https://www.techradar247.com/2020/11/06/young-sheldon-season-4-episode-2-sheldon-and-missy-to-face-many-changes-major-plot-ahead/
So, we will have to wait a week to see if David’s account turns out to be accurate. And, if so, how did he see the episode before it aired?
[Update: since posting this last night, I asked David for more details and he provided this: “I remember Young Sheldon ringing a bell inside the museum and it irritates the guy who hired him. The gentleman who hired him has long straight hair and bald on top. Sheldon dresses up in a conductor’s suit; he wanted to look the part.“]
