I owe my deepest apology to Mary Jane Paul. Hear me out. I rode her case all season about being an insufferable woman screwing up a good thing with the oh-so-perfect Sheldon.

Mary Jane Paul does not want to win. I’m all for women dating multiple men so as not to put all the proverbial eggs in one basket, but M.J. has Sheldon, who is damn near perfect. Why she’s watching movies and sipping wine with Mr. Cutty Buddy baffles the hell out of me. A woman does have needs, but pillow talk with the booty call about Sheldon is not how any of this works.
