EXCLUSIVE! Topanga Faces Her Old Crimped and Kooky Self on 'Girl Meets World'-Watch!
By Leanne Aguilera
It's time for Throwback Thursday: Boy Meets World Edition!
Fans know and love actress Danielle Fishel as Topanga Lawrence—the adorable know-it-all, and soul mate to Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) on Boy Meets World. And now, the 33-year-old actress stars as Topanga once again in the hit Disney Channel continuation.
It's no secret that we at Entertainment Tonight absolutely love Boy Meets World. So when creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs revealed to us that Topanga would be reminiscing on her free-spirited childhood in this week's all-new Girl Meets World, we just had to snag our fellow fans an exclusive sneak peek.
Although Topanga achieved her dreams of becoming a high powered lawyer in New York City, many diehard '90s kids will remember that she was once an earth-loving hippie child who pushed Cory to embrace the uncool.
But in this week's all new episode of Girl Meets World, Topanga find herself questioning the woman that she's become, and tries to connect with her old self in order to get some clarity on a big case.
"Topanga is on the wrong side of a court case," Jacobs explained to ETonline. "She’s a successful lawyer and she realizes that in this particular case and her boss is just this terrible and horrible lawyer from hell."
The showrunner continued, "She looks in a mirror and the original Topanga comes out to become her mentor and advise her through the episode. She influences Topanga to re-dress like the original Topanga and to find what’s right through that character."
Unfortunately, not everyone is as excited as we are for Topanga to embrace her old, (and wildly crimped!) roots. Riley (Rowan Blanchard) does not completely understand why her typically professional mother is channeling her old inner moon goddess.
"Riley perceives that her mother is becoming somebody completely different than the mother she was used to," Jacobs revealed. "But the audience will recognize that personality part as the actual, original Topanga."
That's right, Feeny lovers! The original, crazy-haired Topanga that we fell in love with in Boy Meets World's very first season is coming back—and we've got your exclusive first look!
Take a look at our sneak peek video above to reminisce on all the nostalgic Boy Meets World goodness for yourself. Plus, find out what Topanga would look like today if she had fully embraced her optimistically eccentric roots.
(FYI, if you're not already watching each and every episode of Girl Meets World, you really need to read just your priorities. Not only is it a worthy continuation of the beloved Boy Meets World series fans grew up loving, GMW is a witty and infectiously fun, series that multiple generations can enjoy. Okay, our love-fest rant is over.)
You can see Topanga's full transformation on this Friday's all-new episode of Girl Meets World, Friday at 8:30 p.m. on Disney Channel.
