Mary (Zoe Perry) was quite shaken up about the death of the 16 year old girl and this made Mary (Zoe Perry ) question her faith, so she went to meet her Pastor (Matt Hobby) and he gave her a pep talk about increasing her hard work, kindness and prayer, well that worked for a while until Mary (Zoe Perry) finally lost herself, she went drinking with Meemah to drown her sorrows and left George on daddy duty. Trust the twins to play a trick on him.  The next scene opened with George ( Lance Barber) making breakfast and their mum absent, this made Sheldon (Iain Armitage) worried.

Mother dearest

Later that night after dinner , Sheldon starts comforting Mary (Zoe Perry) with scientific facts that proves the existence of a creator, and so his mother asked “I thought you didn’t believe in God. ” and he replies “I don’t, but the precision of the universe makes it logical to conclude that there is a creator” We got to see the compassionate side of Sheldon  and he was willing to accommodate his mother beliefs to make her happy.
