EXCLUSIVE: 'Girl Meets World' Sneak Peek: Watch Shawn and Angela Reunite for the First Time in 15 Years!
By Leanne Aguilera
It's finally here!
Back in February, ETonline was the first to break the news that Trina McGee would be heading to Disney Channel's smash series Girl Meets World to reprise her role as Angela Moore -- aka Shawn Hunter's (Rider Strong) long lost love.
Now we're debuting the exclusive sneak peek of Shawn and Angela's highly anticipated reunion, and it's guaranteed to give all Boy Meets World fans some serious feels!
On this Friday's all-new episode, "Girl Meets Hurricane" Shawn world -- and his potential new relationship with Maya's (Sabrina Carpenter) mom -- gets hit with a surprising whirlwind when Angela walks back into his life after she broke his heart fifteen years ago.
In our exclusive first look clip above, Shawn and his new crush Katy (Cheryl Texiera) are discussing their past relationships, when Cory rushes into the coffee shop to deliver some ironic news.
Cory prefaces Angela's arrival with a knock-knock joke and refers to her as the person who could change Shawn's life from "Things are going pretty good right now." to "Aahhh!"
And then, for the first time in a decade in a half, Angela walks back into Shawn's life with a colorful new look and a simple, "Hi."
Not only is Angela making her GMW debut in this Friday's episode, another fan-favorite character is returning as well.
Blake Clark, who played Shawn's beloved and departed father Chet Hunter, will be back to reprise his role as Shawn's subconscious life guide as he tries to figure out which girl truly has his heart.
But for those of you who are hoping that Shawn and Angela's reunion will lead to a rekindled romance, creator Michael Jacobs warned that life doesn’t always give you happy endings. "We know that [Shawn's] relationship with Angela Moore was a very important relationship to the audience, but we also know something more which is that with Shawn, nothing good ever really happened to him," Jacobs explained to ETonline earlier this year.
In BMW, Shawn and Angela dated off-and-on throughout high school and college before Angela decided to move to Europe to spend time with her father. It was implied that Shawn was going to ask Angela to marry him, but he couldn't bring himself to stand in the way of their father/daughter relationship.
"He lost his father, he lost his mother, he lost his girlfriend," Jacobs said. "She left him, and her rationale for leaving him was that she had a mother who had left her. That plagued so deeply in [Angela] that she never thought that she would be a good parent, a good wife, a good anything, but clearly she cared very deeply for Shawn."
The EP continued, "But then 14 years goes by and the writing staff had some very hard decisions to make, and one of those decisions is, what is a two and a half year relationship in high school? How many Cory and Topanga's are out there?"
Looks like we're going to find out!
Watch Shawn and Angela's reunion on an all-new Girl Meets World Friday at 8:30 p.m. on Disney Channel.
