“Girl Meets World” Season 2 Episode 8 “Girl Meets Hurricane” aired last Friday, June 19, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. on the Disney Channel. In this episode, Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter) bonded more as he took on the role as her new father figure seriously, and began to get a little closer to Maya’s mother. However, Angela Moore (Trina McGee) came back into his life, and threatened to destroy Maya’s hopes, but it is soon discovered that there was more to this visit than it seemed. Read on to learn more about this episode.
At Topanga’s, Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), after seeing Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter) and Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) having cute father-daughter moments with each other, wondered out loud why he and Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) couldn’t be like that. In response, Riley shoved him off of their seat.
Afterwards, Maya dared Shawn to impart some “fatherly advice” to her and began to cry tears of happiness. He cared about her after he told her that he didn’t like the way she dressed. She then stopped crying after he told her that he would buy her some new clothes. Riley then tried this on her father, but it didn’t work at all.
Later, at Demolition, Cory tried to make Shawn sit on one of the chairs while waiting for Maya to come out of the dressing room, but he refused to do so as that would mean that he would really be like a father to Maya. However, after seeing Maya looking wonderful in a more feminine dress, he decided to sit down on the chair beside Cory and proceeded to buy Maya a new wardrobe that would change her entire look.
Back at Topanga’s, Katy Hart (Cheryl Texiera) began to object to Shawn’s kindness towards Maya, but after seeing how happy she was, she relented. Meanwhile, back at the Matthews’ apartment, while Maya tried on her new clothes, she told Riley a surprising thing- for once in her life, she was going to allow herself to have some hope that Shawn and her mother could one day get together.
The next day, at class, Cory talked to the class about Hurricane Katrina. Lucas Friar (Peyton Meyer) then told them that he had gone there after Hurricane Katrina to help out and was amazed that the people of New Orleans still had barbecues and picnics with each other. Cory then told them that sometimes, hurricanes do come into one’s lives but was important was that they had hope. He then commented that Maya’s new look was great on her, but it wasn’t the clothes that made the biggest difference, it was that she had hope.
Later, at Topanga’s, Katy confronted Shawn. She told him not to keep Maya’s hopes up so that she wouldn’t get disappointed as she had decided not to love anyone else after her ex-husband left her. She then told him that she didn’t know him that well yet. Shawn then told her that his relationship with Angela Moore (Trina McGee) ended a long time ago, and that he had learned how to rebuild and let others into his life, just as she should as well. However, at that moment, after a nervous warning from Cory who ended up joining Riley and Maya at the window looking inside, Angela arrived. This caused Katy to join the others at the window. However, Riley was surprised by Maya. She decided that it was too soon to lose the hope she had just gotten back.
Inside, Angela revealed that she was married and that she was worried about becoming a mother since her own mother had left her and could only talk to Shawn about it. Shawn then told her to be a mother and to enjoy watching her children be amazing and wonderful. After thanking him, she asked about Maya and Katy and asked if Katy was “the one.” She then told him to take a chance on things and to let their relationship have been the practice ground to make a good relationship work someday. After leaving and smiling at Katy, Riley hugged her father.
Afterwards, back at Demolition, Katy ended up asking Shawn to go out on a date with her. While he pondered his response, his father’s spirit, Chet Hunter (Blake Clark) encouraged him to go out with her. He then agreed to the date, and Maya let out a Riley-like cheer as she was excited that this was actually happening.
