When Boy Meets World ended, it was one of the saddest finales of my little heart. I knew that Cory and Topanga would continue on as the happiest married couple there ever was, but I was worried about the rest of the characters. Specifically, I worried for Shawn.
Who would finally make him want to give up his bad-boy tendencies? Would someone finally give him the family he’s always wanted? How does he wear that leather jacket in the summer?
I had a lot of questions.
It looks like I’ll finally get the answers to most of my questions.
In the newest episode, Shawn (played by old-school heartthrob Rider Strong) asks his best friend Cory to help him pop the question to his on-again, off-again love Katy (Cheryl Texiera). He explains that he’s deeply in love with her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
I don’t know what it is about watching one of my childhood crushes get married that makes me so happy. I mean, I’m a grown woman who fully understands that this is a TV show, but I can’t help but be obsessed with it. Even if it isn’t Angela, the first woman to tame Shawn and show him unconditional love, it’s someone who can definitely create a family with Shawn.
See? I care way too much.
I have to admit that I haven’t been watching Girl Meets World since it started airing, but I might have to start. Between the Shawn Hunter proposal and the constant nostalgic throwbacks to Boy Meets World (including the opening credits), it seems like a show that’s really dedicated to pleasing its older fans who are there for Boy Meets World, as well as get new fans who are experiencing these iconic characters for the first time.
Also, I need to keep watching because I still don’t know how Shawn manages to wear a black leather jacket during the summer.
