It also serves as the first part in the 3-part event. It aired on October 16, to 2. Contents [ show ] Overview Riley, Maya, and Farkle head to Texas with Lucas, who has been entered in the bull-riding competition at the rodeo in his hometown. Plot As class is about to begin, Riley and Maya enter the classroom announcing to Lucas that they're about to change his life. After Zay told them about Lucas' biggest and darkest secret-- that when he was five years old he fell off Judy the sheep during a Mutton Busting Rodeo, they decide to sign him up for another round, although this time he'd be riding what they think is Tombstone the sheep and not Judy.
Lucas and Zay are immediately taken aback by this, and after Maya reads the paper properly, she realizes Tombstone is not a sheep, but a bull, but Maya and Riley still don't understand why Lucas and Zay are frightened. Cory walks in and begins class, talking about the railroad; his class is soon interrupted by Pappy Joe, Lucas' grandfather, who has traveled on the train all the way from Austin, Texas to take Lucas and Zay back to Austin so that Lucas can ride Tombstone.
Pappy Joe talks about how Lucas was an embarrassment to the community when he fell off a sheep in tournament.
Once they get settled in at Pappy Joe's ranch house, Riley and Maya fashion themselves a bay window in Pappy Joe's living room, and then the group is interrupted by the appearance of Cletus, a family friend who is also a ranch hand and rodeo clown.
Cletus frantically tells Pappy Joe that Tombstone went "bananahooey" and had to be heavily sedated after he "brammo'd" escaped from his pen, and that he pities whoever has to ride him when he wakes up; when he realizes Lucas will be the one riding him, Cletus gives him a sad look and quietly leaves.
The next day, Lucas becomes nervous when he sees Tombstone; he asks Riley and Maya why they want him to die, but having never actually seen a bull, they continue to dismiss his fear. But when they walk into an air-conditioned tent and see videos of others getting injured in recent rodeo competitions, Maya becomes genuinely concerned and immediately tells Lucas not to ride the bull, but Riley supports Lucas, as she believes he should give his best at whatever he tries.

Girl Meets World Season 2, Episode 20 Girl Meets Texas Part 1
By Max Nicholson Warning: As part of a three-day event, " Girl Meets Texas: Part 1 " kicked off Girl Meets World's biggest arc yet, centered around Lucas's return home to compete in a mutton busting tournament. Of course, the underlying storyline here was Riley, Maya and Lucas settling their love triangle, which is where this first installment really shined.
Honestly, though, this episode got off to a bit of a clunky start, as Riley and Maya told Lucas they'd signed him for a competition without his consent. It was also a little weird how Lucas's Pappy Joe showed up out of nowhere to pull him and Zay out of school to promptly leave for Texas.

That's not to mention the bizarre travel interlude with voiceover telling us that Riley, Maya and Farkle were also tagging along on the trip. The gang's arrival at Pappy Joe's homestead was a little better, but only just. I did like how they all immediately switched to rancher garb, with Riley and Maya spending all their vacation money on their new outfits.
However, Pappy Joe's hillbilly friend Cletus was absolutely insufferable -- a "Disney Channel" stereotype if I've ever seen one.

Whatever happened to brilliant one-off characters like " That Farmhouse, There " guy? You know what this place needs? Past that, though, this episode was actually pretty great.
With the exposition out of the way, I was delighted to see the group at an actual location outside the studio.
