If you're anything like us, you must be just as completely shook as we are over last week's episode of Girl Meets World. When Disney Channel announced they will not be renewing the beloved series we're head over heels obsessed with, we thought the best way to honor the remaining episodes of Girl Meets World was to break down everything you need to know about the end of the series and share our thoughts on the final three episodes. Your editors here at M are now back with another recap to gush about "Girl Meets Sweet Sixteen," which aired Friday, January 13 at 6 PM and is the second to last episode of the series.
In true GMW fashion, "Girl Meets Sweet Sixteen" was chock-full of life lessons. In this episode, Riley and Maya learned that growing up means you sometimes have to make decisions that aren't easy – where to go to college, the future of relationships, you name it.
Despite the fact that Riley and the squad are only freshmen in high school, Riley seemed pretty eager to have her Sweet Sixteen at the start of the episode. That was until Riley and Maya realized that once it comes time to start thinking about where to go to college, the decision isn't going to be easy. If Maya plans on attending art school and Riley aims for a prestigious university, then the besties will unfortunately be forced to be apart. Despite the fact that this scary thought was put into the girls' heads, we all know Riley and Maya are forever – just like Corey and Shawn were on Boy Meets World and beyond.
Another huge storyline in the second to last episode of the series was recognizing the depth of Farkle and Smackle's relationship. Given the fact that Smackle is always jokingly hitting on Lucas, Farkle started to question the seriousness behind it. With the help of Zay and Lucas, Farkle got to the bottom of it by setting up an epic trap. Lucas pulled out his smooth moves and talked to Smackle one on one, and thankfully he managed to get Smackle to admit that she just jokes around like that because she's afraid Farkle's feelings may not be as strong as hers. However, Farkle really likes her – and they're basically stronger than ever. OK, but are we the only ones that are getting total Corey and Topanga vibes from these two?!
And then, of course, we have the bombshell at the end. Riley, Maya and Auggie were in tears when they found out that Topanga got offered her dream job... in London. The episode ended in a "to be continued," leaving all of us totally confused and heartbroken. What does this mean for Riley and Maya – and what about Riley and Lucas? Our hearts even break for Auggie and his bestie Ava. All we know is this final upcoming episode better give us some closure because we just don't even know what to think over here.
You can catch "Girl Meets Goodbye," the final episode of the series on Friday, January 20 at 6 PM. Then, be sure to check back for another recap video to hear our final thoughts.
