Full spoilers from Girl Meets World: Season 2 to follow. Much like its predecessor, Girl Meets World did a lot of growing up between Seasons 1 and 2 and took bigger risks with its storylines, while examining more serious subject matter.
Riley has until midnight on New Year's Eve to tell her friends how she really feels about Lucas.
By Max Ign girl meets new year Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow. The last couple of Girl Meets World episodes had swept the events of the "Texas" arc under the rug, but " Girl Meets the New Year " brought the love triangle back to the forefront -- or I guess love square, including Charlie Gardener.
And similar to the "Texas" episodes, this storyline definitely had good character moments, but it ultimately didn't make any real headway. It was nice seeing Harper Burgess come back for this one, as she and Cory tag-teamed this week's lesson.
I was also let down by the fact that Zay was completely left out of this episode, with Charlie taking his place in class. I mean, the seat behind Lucas is kind of a revolving door, but it still felt weird that Zay wasn't at Riley's New Year's party.
Speaking of which, the "ball" was another fun storyline that vibed with this week's romance-centric plot. Overall, I liked how "Girl Meets the New Year" maintained a very Christmasy feel, even though the holiday was clearly over by the start of the episode.
Personally, I might have liked to see another Christmas-proper episode, since last year's was so strong, but this was a neat way to change things up. Having the party take place at the Matthews' house was also smart, since it gave Cory, Topanga and Auggie their own moments in the story without it feeling too forced.
Likewise, Farkle and Smackle had some sweet moments as the only functional couple of the group. But of course the underlying conflict here was the same one from "Girl Meets Texas, Part 3" -- that is, Riley hiding her true feelings for Lucas. And this is where the episode started to meander a bit.
For one, Farkle's ultimatum felt out of character for him, not to mention a little messed up. While I could see his point -- that Riley waiting to tell Lucas and Maya could be detrimental to the group dynamic -- it should have been Riley's choice to tell Lucas herself, or process the situation internally.
Sometimes it just takes time to work through those feelings naturally, and Farkle "blowing the horn" at midnight just seemed like needless grandstanding.
On the bright side, Riley shooting down Charlie once and for all was probably the one substantial thing to happen in terms of the relationships.
While the character of Charlie has been a fun distraction for Riley, there's not much more the writers can realistically do with him -- at least as far as him flirting with Riley goes. I did think Charlie's moment with Auggie at midnight was pretty cute too.
Which on the one hand was probably a realistic way to end things; but on the other I was really hoping for a big talk between the three of them, as it was alluded to in the first half of this episode. With any luck, the next episode will finally begin to resolve the issue, but I expect not since we still have several episodes left this season.
The Verdict This week's holiday-themed Girl Meets World did a good job of featuring all the main characters minus Zay, weirdlythanks to a fitting lesson from Harper Burgess and an even better party element. That said, Farkle's ultimatum to Riley didn't seem like something his character would do, and ultimately nothing really happened from it.
