As "Girl Meets World" enters the final stages of Season 2, fans are finally going to see a bit more of the romantic future that is in store for Riley (Rowan Blanchard), Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lucas (Peyton Meyer). In the upcoming three-part "Girl Meets Texas" episodes, Riley and her friends will travel to Texas, where Lucas used to live, before shifting to New York.
In "Girl Meets Texas: Part 1", the girls sign Lucas up for the annual Mutton Busting Tournament in his home state of Texas, but they dismiss the fine print – a lesson for people who ignore terms and conditions, perhaps .
Although the girls initially thought Lucas would be riding a sheep – which is actually meant for children below 8 years old – it turns out, Lucas would actually be riding a bull named Tombstone. And as their beloved friend Zay (Aamir Mitchell Townes) puts it so eloquently, it is going to be the end of Lucas.
However, these Texan-based episodes are not going to be known among "GMW" fans for putting Lucas on a bull, but for how the dynamics between Riley and Maya changes. From the beginning of the series, it was understood that Riley and Lucas are interested in each other romantically; Riley used to be unable to speak coherently with Lucas and the two even shared a kiss.
In "Girl Meets Yearbook", when Maya started acting like Riley, she came to the realisation that the relationship Lucas and Riley share is like that of siblings and for them to become romantically involved would be a mistake. She does not share this information with Riley, though.
In the episodes that followed, it becomes clearer that Maya and Lucas are attracted to each other, and in fact most of the Lucas is even assigned to "contain" Maya when she gets crazy and angry.
In "Girl Meets Texas" episodes, we will see how the romance between Lucas and Maya plays out, and how Riley reacts to it. In the promo, we hear Riley telling Maya that sisters should not keep secrets from each other. In another scene, Maya tells Riley "Something happened between me and Lucas", as Lucas goes "Oh Boy".
