The series finale of Girl Meets World obviously was beyond emotional for fans of the Disney Channel show. Knowing this was the last time Riley, Maya, and all their friends' stories would be brought to us on the network was bittersweet, and really the end of an era. As tear-jerking as the episode one, it was recently revealed that there was a scene totally cut out.
Danny McNulty, who played Harley Keiner on Boy Meets World and GMW, took to Instagram to reveal that his scene was taken out of the finale. In the un-aired moment, Harley has a conversation with Farkle's dad, Stuart Minkus. Here is the scene from the script:
And while Danny was on set, he recited the lines, giving fans a glimpse of what the convo would've sounded like.
This is all kind of heartbreaking, since Danny went on to say that he thinks the scene was taken out because he has been very active with the #SaveGMW campaign.
"I guess #DisneyChannel didn't take to kindly to all the campaigning I did to try and #saveGMW 💔. They cut out the only scene I had in #GirlMeetsGoodbye," he wrote on Instagram.
Fans fought hard on social media to save the show, as did the cast, and it's a fight they're still continuing, which Danny is too. But it is important to take note that the episode title did change as well, so perhaps the writers just felt the final episode should go in a different direction. Since this did end up being the series finale and at the time the show's creator Michael Jacobs and the writers didn't know for sure if it would be, they could've made some changes to the first version of the script in order to prepare. This could've been why Danny's scene was cut. Changing scripts happens all the time on television shows and this isn't the first time GMW has taken out a scene. In "Girl Meets Texas", originally a kiss between Maya and Lucas was supposed to go down.
But it was changed instead to the unforgettable face grab that was almost a kiss scene. Let us relive it, shall we?
It might never be known why the Harley/Minkus scene was taken out, but at least it's all out there now for true GMW fans to know what could've been.
