Best friends Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) will be taking some life advice from original “Boy Meets World” member Shawn (Rider Strong) in the upcoming new episode of Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” season 3.
Reports claim that both Shawn and Maya are more rebellious than their friends but the latter seems to be changing recently and becoming more compliant to rules. However, Riley will not stand for the seeming metamorphosis and convinces Maya to see how amazing she actually is.
Titled “Girl Meets Upstate,” episode 6 will see the two teens taking a trip to visit their Uncle Shawn. In the promotional clip, the narrator teases that the girls will be on a mission. Maya asks Riley, “Tell me where we’re going,” to which she replied with, “To find you.”
They then arrived at Uncle Shawn’s place, “You came to see me cause you disappeared a little? You’re in the right place!” It appears that he has perspective on what is currently happening with Maya. “I was tough and edgy… and a little crazy.”
It turns out that his craziness with things will inspire the girls. During a painting session, Maya suddenly put some paint on Riley’s face, “I did my job,” she quips. Instead of getting angry because of her actions, Riley excitedly pointed out that she is back to her old self, “There you are! I did my job too!”
On a related note, Strong took to Twitter to tease that he took the helm as director for a few upcoming installments in the show. “My brother and I are directing a couple great, nostalgic episodes of Girl Meets World…” he tweeted alongside a photo of the scene.
Based on the image, speculations suggest that he may be referring to the episode “Girl Meets Ski Lodge,” which is expected to bring a resolution to the love triangle between Riley, Maya and Lucas (Peyton Meyer). However, it remains to be seen if it comes to fruition.
Season 3 episode 6 of “Girl Meets World” is slated to air on Friday, July 8 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
