The third season of Disney's hit coming-of-age TV series "Girl Meets World" is now drawing to a close. Reports indicate that the finale might feature a handful of familiar faces. Meanwhile, the show returns this week with a brand-new episode that will get to see someone having a change of heart.

In the previous episode titled "Girl Meets Ski Lodge" Part 1, Lucas (Peyton Meyer) finally made his pick between Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). Apparently, it was the former that caught the young man's fancy, but hints surfaced in the past few days that "Girl Meets Ski Lodge" part 2 might find Lucas having a change of heart. Could it be Maya's turn to be glad now?

The recent tweet from the writers behind the show reads:

"This week: Ski Lodge Part 2, in which we don't make the right decisions. Because we love the characters too."

They added, in a follow-up post, that the characters "will examine the positions" they are in.

Followers of the series were quick to point out that this could mean that the season would end with Lucas and Maya together. Still, there are those who believe that Maya won't be too keen to make such a move based on the possibility that she already has someone else in mind.

It remains to be known, though, if these theories will come to fruition. The synopsis on TV Listings did say that the episode will see Lucas make a choice between Riley and Maya.

In related news, TVLine cited the latest updates from the show, hinting at a grand reunion in the season 3 finale. As mentioned, Mr. Feeny (William Daniels), Mr. Turner (Anthony Quinn), Shawn (Rider Strong), Eric (Will Friedle), Alan (William Russ), Amy (Betsy Randle), Minkus (Lee Norris), and Harley (Danny McNulty) will be present in the season closer.

Their appearance will be a much needed blessing as they will be there to "help [the characters] make a decision."

"Girl Meets World" season 3 episode 9 airs Friday, July 29 at 8:30 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel.
