After a two-week break, "Girl Meets World" will return to Disney on Friday, 11 September, with episode 15, "Girl Meets I am Farkle" aka "Girl Meets Farkle". The episode is expected to focus on one of Riley's best friends Farkle, who has been pegged as a genius.
In episode 15, Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis) learns a surprising news about himself and finds it really difficult to deal with it. The show is set to tackle Asperger's syndrome or AD, which is characterised by the patient's difficulties in social interaction, restricted and repetitive interests, and so on.
We have always seen Farkle as an over-achiever and a very unique student, whose intelligence his teacher Cory (Ben Savage) appreciates and encourages. In the coming episode, he will learn more about his uniqueness and how he should embrace it. The story-line will allow young viewers to understand more about AS and how everybody is different and no one deserves to be ridiculed for what they are.
The episode will also see the return of Smackle (Cecilia Balagot), who, along with being Farkle's greatest nemesis, is also his love interest.
Although she has expressed deep adoration for Farkle, he has never reciprocated it, even trying to use Lucas's (Peyton Meyer) to try and distract her. However, in "Girl Meets Farkle", we will see him trying to be closer to Smackle. He wants to understand love, and Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) tell him that he would have find that out for himself.
The episode will also introduce Lee Norris as Minkus and Kristanna Loken as Jennifer Bassett Minkus, both of whom were seen in "Boy Meets World".
