Girl Meets Yearbook entered a new ground for Girl Meets World. It was mainly about the core group – Riley, Maya, Lucas and Farkle. It was an hilarious episode and a great message. They find out that the 7th grade voted Maya and Lucas the favorite couple (a bit later after the opening), Riley was voted for smile herself to death, and Farkle was voted for “Most likely to be Farkle, Farkle”. After seeing what they got voted for both decided to change themselves. Riley turned into a dark Riley and Farkle turned into “Donnie Barnes: Regular Guy” (which they did an awesome parallel to with Boy with Minkus where he went from the nerd character to “Stuart Minkus: Regular Guy”).
Katy was back in this episode (we loved seeing her back). Maya wanted to turn into Riley to make her realize that she shouldn’t change herself. Katy said to Maya that she may learn things about them that she didn’t know before and that she may learn a secret even they don’t know about themselves. Riley replies “Nonsense, it’s impossible to become somebody else.”
She dressed up as Riley by putting her wig on, went to the classroom and mimicked her and Lucas and while she was doing that, realized that Riley thinks of Lucas as a brother. After coming to that realization she said she didn’t want to be Riley anymore.
Lucas was a big part of this episode and we loved his lines.
We feel that this episode was in response to the Girl Meets World fandom as so many people ship Maya and Lucas together and they even referenced near the end of the episode “We don’t care what you say! We’re not crashing our ships”. People always say that Riley always smiles but we love that about her as that’s what keeps her innocence.
Cory’s lesson to the class was about Iceland and Greenland. It was about people are always going to say stuff, how you react to what they say is what makes you the person you are.
At the end, Topanga said to Katy “Do you ever do Maya”? She replies “Ooh, I can’t. When you have strong emotions for someone, it’s like its too hard to see straight”. Topanga replies “Do Shawn” and she goes for it. She failed and she replies to Topanga, “You set me up”. I wonder what this can mean.
Farkle said that its the new him as “Donnie Barnes: Regular Guy” but his name is Farkle Minkus. He said hes growing up and doesn’t know what will happen next. They’re his best friends and they have to deal with it
Boy Meets World reference:
Cory saying “The Jerks”, so hilarious!
Topanga said she was weird, Cory was celery.
Minkus changing from a nerd to a normal character “Start Minkus: Regular Guy”, and Farkle changing from a nerd to a normal character “Donnie Barnes: Regular Guy”
