Why I think the writers could possibly being going with Riley and Farkle as a couple
I know I am probably off base with this but I don’t care . I want to post it regardless because I love theorizing just like I did with Pretty Little Liars. At the end of July, Michael Jacobs tweeted about the August 7th episode of Girl Meets World which was Girl Meets Yearbook. In the tweet he said that they’ve been preparing everyone since the kids talked in the library. I went back and re-watched Girl Meets Boy which was the episode Michael referred to when he said that that they’ve been preparing us since the kids talked in the Library.
I found a couple of quotes by Maya that I felt were interesting. The only scene in the Library that Michael could be referring to are the ones between Farkle and Maya. Lucas and Riley were getting to know each other and were not talking about relationships and the one with Cory/Maya didn’t hint to that either. Anyways as Maya was reading the book out loud to Farkle she says:
“Because its not until you’ve really looked at each other and made a human connection that you can even begin to know each other. There is no connection you can make with any screen that compares to the moment you understand that only human beings have souls”
In Girl Meets Yearbook we saw how Maya realized that Riley thinks of Lucas as a brother only which fits with the quote from Girl Meets Boy. However after watching Girl Meets Boy over again I realized that quote could also be referring to something else. If you think about it everyone thinks of Farkle as this geeky, nerdy kid, who is all about studying and getting A’s. No one has really stopped and looked at him as anything different. What if Riley has a moment where she looks at Farkle differently and not as the geeky nerdy kid anymore which then makes her realize she likes him? Another thing I want to point out is the fact that Riley and Farkle are both voted something in Yearbook that they aren’t happy about. The writers made it a point to show that Farkle is changing and growing up to be more mature which right there might be what could make Riley look at him differently than how she used to before.
Also the other night when I went to search Girl Meets World videos in the search bar one of the things that came up was “Farkle kisses Riley.” then it hit me right away that the Riley/Farkle first kiss scene mirrored Cory and Topanga’s kiss on Boy Meets World.
And lets not forget about this tweet where someone actually said “Could Farkle be Riley’s Topanga” Look at what the writers replied with.
One of the things that Michael keeps stressing is that where they are going is not in the direction that you think they are going. Everyone thinks he means that they are going with Lucaya instead of Rucas but I honestly am wondering if they are hinting at the fact that they are going with Farkle and Riley. If you think about it no one really ships those two hardcore. They have a shipping fan base but it’s not as big as that Rucas and Lucaya ones. No one really expects Farkle/Riley to be together because they are so focused on if Riley will be with Lucas or if Maya will be with Lucas. I rarely see Riley and Farkle talked about. Also. Michael Jacobs just did an interview with Ksite TV (you can read it here:http://bmwsequel.com/2015/08/19/new-michael-jacobs-interview-with-ksitetv/ ) and in it he says this:
Our first year was about friendship. Thematically, we were completely about friendship. Our second year was about growth. Well, if there is a third season — I’d like to believe there’s going to be — I think it’s going to be about feelings, and I think what happens when the tsunami of feelings hits — girls or guys who are leaving middle school for high school, taught extraordinarily and capably by Cory Matthews and the other teachers — can what they’ve learned be any match for the perfectly normal and wonderful feelings that invade the lives of people that are beginning high school and the next leg of their journey toward adulthood?
We think that’s going to be magnificent exploration, and I will tell you that the rest of Season 2 begins to go down that road, that anything you believe that’s going on, you’ll be wrong. We’re heading to something that we think is very fresh, very new, but it’s the endgame, and it’s going to take a long time for this story to play out. So what I would say is [that] everybody should sit back and really enjoy what I think is going to be an honest ride.
In Girl Meets Yearbook during the dancing scene when Lucas is dancing with Maya and she calls him out on it by saying
“Why would you be dancing with me if you are officially a huckleberry”
Lucas pauses for about 3 to 4 seconds then turns back around so he’s not dancing with Maya then he turns around to face her again. There was something about that scene that made me wonder if Lucas isn’t starting to realize he might like Maya. In the Girl Meets Creativity promo it shows Lucas sticking up for her and she’s looking at him like she can’t believe it. I don’t know why but I really think they are going with Lucas/Maya and Riley/Farkle. I think Lucas is going to is going to realize that he likes Maya more than a friend and that Riley is going to realize she has always liked Farkle. Maybe that’s what Michael means when he talks about feelings coming out. I am probably so far off base with this but I wanted to write it anyway.
being erica | 1x01;dr. tom. Tell me if I’m getting warm, okay? It’s not just that today was bad, it’s every day. It’s the feeling that nothing seems to work out for you. Still single; all those nights, alone with the cat. All your successful, married friends feeling bad for you. Am I getting warm?
Erica: Just any door? Help me out here, I need some context. I mean, what am I supposed to do and how do I choose?
Dr. Tom: One day, Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a cheshire cat. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. 'Where do you wanna go?’ was his response. 'I don’t know’ answered Alice. 'Then’ said the cat 'it doesn’t matter’.
