WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD – DO NOT CONTINUE, IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE RECENT EPISODE
Let’s talk about that new episode of Girl Meets World, shall we…the one where we were all loving and hating Farkle and then loving him even more after the episode was done.
We all know that Farkle gave Riley a deadline to reveal her true feelings — by midnight on New Year’s Eve (which we have to pause and ask why were they at school during Christmas break?) — and in a way she did…just not to Lucas.
Here’s what happened on the show:
Inspired by reading Sense & Sensibility in English class, Riley throws a New Years Ball for her and all her friends — which Charlie Gardner just happens to hear just as she’s announcing it to Maya and invites himself.
This is where Farkle’s deadline comes into play again — and he tells Riley if she doesn’t tell Lucas and Maya about her feelings, he will.
At the party, Farkle arrives with Smackle — wearing the best couple sweaters ever — and just after arriving, Lucas does. A cute little scene between Smackle and Lucas is probably the best part of the entire episode. It’s the other, non-existent love triangle.
The gang plays a couple’s game, chosen by Charlie, of course, and has Charlie and Lucas spatting back and forth over who knows Riley better. We’re not sure who wins here…other than Farkle and Smackle, because they’re Farkle and Smackle.
As midnight comes closer, Riley isn’t any closer to revealing her feelings to Maya or Lucas. But she is to Charlie and lets him down gently; telling him that while they make sense in her head, she needs something more than that.
Maya, who was left behind in the home and talked with Cory and Topanga about her own feelings, joins the party on the roof and chooses to be beside Lucas when midnight comes.
The clock winds down and Farkle, seeing Riley isn’t doing anything about her own feelings, makes good on his deadline — telling everyone at the party about Riley’s secret. The entire party leaves, and Farkle promises that he did it because he does care about her. This leaves Riley, Maya, and Lucas on a bench together. In silence.
