Girl Meets Hurricane.. the anticipated episode that we had all been waiting for has finally aired! This episode included the return of Shawn Hunter, Shawn Hunter’s dad, and Angela!
I personally feel they did great with this episode but I’m sure there are many people out there who disagree. I, myself am a fan of Shawngela. However, 15 years did go by, and putting Shawn and Angela back together would feel so unrealistic and it wouldn’t be right. Don’t get me wrong, I love them two together, but as I’ve stated, it would of been wrong for them to reconnect and be together again after seeing each other for the first time in 15 years.
It was nice how we got to see Maya’s guard down. She was happy and was with Shawn a lot in this episode along with Cory and Riley which was great. Maya said she had hope which she’s never had since the show started. This was a great change for her character. We also learn Katy’s husband aka Maya’s dad is named “Kermit”.
Cory was talking about Hurricane Katrina and related it to the episode since Angela was coming in to see Shawn.
What I really loved was how Angela gave Shawn her blessing by telling him “Well let me tell you what’s right. Let what we had make you ready for something. Life knows what it’s doing.” Angela helped put Shawn in the right direction so he can be happy. This also helps as we’ll see Shawn with Katy and Maya which will help bring in great storylines (there are already amazing storylines in the show but this helps it out) for them through out the show.
We learned that Angela was married for four years. She says “Life goes on” to Shawn. She came back to ask Shawn advice about her marriage. Angela asked if she and her husband should have kids and told Shawn that she only trusts him with her decisions. She also told Shawn that her dad had passed away. Julius Carry the actor who played Angela’s father passed away on August 19, 2008.
Katy asked Shawn out and he wasn’t sure about it. At the end of the episode, Shawn’s dad, Chet Hunter came back in Ghost form and helped push Shawn with Katy and Maya. Shawn said yes to dating Katy. Can I just say how wonderful it was to see Chet back? I got the chills from seeing him. I love the moments between him and Shawn.
Some funny moments:
Rily and Maya’s conversation about their parents names. Riley says “Kermit”?, Maya replies “Topanga?” then Riley closes the conversation by saying “We’re even”.
Riley pushing Cory out of his seat.
Cory: “Awkward. I now pronounce you Awkward.”
Riley going “Cluck! Cluck! Cluck! I’m a chicken! Cluck!
When Maya was crying while hugging Shawn after he said that she should dress differently as fatherly advice, she stopped crying after Shawn said “How about I buy you some new clothes”?
There is of course a lot of references to Boy Meets World since Angela, and Chet (Ghost form) returned.
Here is one with Cory and Riley: Cory says to Riley “Riley, is it over between us?”, Riley replies “It’s not me dad, it’s you” which sounded like how Shawn and Cory talked when they said “It’s not you Cory, it’s me”.
