Girl Meets World Season 3 Episode 5 has one of the most intriguing titles for the season, ?Girl Meets Triangle.? Will the much talked about love triangle between Riley (Rowan Blanchard), Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lucas (Peyton Meyer) be concluded in this episode? Or will Riley and Maya continue to drift apart?
The synopsis for Episode 5 doesn?t mention a ?love triangle? at all though. It reads: ?Maya?s identity crisis kicks into full gear when her art teacher makes her realize her friendship with Riley may be affecting her artist?s voice.?
So why is the episode called ?Girl Meets Triangle?? As creator Michael Jacobs said before Season 3 started, the ?love triangle? will not be the focus of the season but it will only be an ?underlying thing in existence for the characters? and will be resolved soon.
A recent tweet dated June 23 from the writers? room of the show said, ?For the next five episodes join us as we explore the potential of best friends. Everyone should have one.? This would mean that the episodes will still put a spotlight on Riley and Maya and how certain obstacles like personal identity, boys and grades would test their friendship.
As recalled, the second installment ended with a brewing love triangle between Riley, Maya and Lucas and somewhere in the third season, they will have to deal with this issue.
The Disney sitcom?s writer had hinted on Twitter previously that there?s no love triangle to begin with but it will be there to create some tension to Riley and Maya?s friendship. @GMWriters? tweet goes, ?Ski Lodge is this year?s Texas. Every episode so far is good. Upstate is real good. Riley, Maya, Lucas all find a relationship. We grow up.?
So, maybe the love triangle thing will be just part of a phase in high school when you and your friend like the same person and you two just end up laughing all about it after. Or it won?t even have to involve a boy. What if it?s actually between Riley, Maya and Maya?s, uhm, alter-ego? As mentioned in the synopsis, ?Maya?s identity crisis kicks into full gear.?
The tweet above also mentioned that Riley, Maya and Lucas will find a relationship. Are these all romantic relationships? Or will they be new friendships and keeping old ones too?
Catch Girl Meets World Episode 5, ?Girl Meets Triangle? this Friday, 8:30 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel.
