Riley Matthews is still Topanga’s spunky daughter
After Rowan Blanchard returned as the Lord of the Rings-obsessed Jackie Geary, Adam Goldberg’s (Sean Giambrone) new girlfriend, the cute couple finally shared their first kiss, with Jackie taking charge and pushing Adam up against the lockers. Needless to say, Adam was totally caught off-guard after the big smooch. Does it look familiar?
That’s because it’s a dead-ringer for the first kiss between Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) all the way back in Boy Meets World‘s first season, where Topanga forced a wild-haired Cory up against the lockers — handcuffed, mind you — and smooched him. It was iconic, and now Cory and Topanga’s TV daughter, Riley (played by Blanchard on the sequel series Girl Meets World), has followed in her mother’s footsteps.
This sweet, nostalgia-inducing moment is a fitting send-off for GMW, and creator Michael Jacobs tweeted out his appreciation for the show’s run on Wednesday (May 3). “We brought our best and hope we made you think and feel,” he said from the show’s writers’ account. “Until next time. Thanks.”
