MR. FEENY GOT STABBED IN THE BACK WITH SCISSORS.

Posted on

So, there's an episode of Boy Meets World titled "And Then There Was Shawn," that is, was, and will forever be terrifying. It starts out pretty normal. The group is talking during class and irritating Feeny — nothing strange about that.

Buena Vista Television

The first sign something's afoot comes when this creepy janitor barges in the room. He dumps some trash and points ahead before silently exiting. Odd.

Buena Vista Television

At first you're like, whatever, this isn't even a Halloween episode, so I don't have to mentally prepare for horror or anything. Feeny gives the group detention and locks them in the classroom, so things appear to be back to normal.

Buena Vista Television

THEN CREEPY JANITOR COMES BACK, lurking through the window. They ask him to unlock the door and he just holds up the keys, smiling like a true weirdo.

Buena Vista Television

At this point the characters begin acknowledging the creepiness, so you know to buckle up for the ride and tell expect that there's more nerve-racking stuff to come.

Buena Vista Television

THEN THIS IS WRITTEN IN BLOOD ON THE CHALKBOARD AND IT'S LIKE WHOA, BOY MEETS WORLD, TAKE IT EASY.

Buena Vista Television

At this point everyone is fully shook and you’re sitting there wondering what happened to the charming TV series about Cory and Topanga’s beautiful, life-lesson filled, coming of age story?

Buena Vista Television

Eric and Jack enter the classroom which provides some comic relief, and you think maybe the episode will chill out...

Buena Vista Television

BUT IT DOESN'T BECAUSE THEN A DUDE GETS STABBED IN THE HEAD WITH A GIANT PENCIL.

Buena Vista Television

Then the group runs out of the classroom and the lights flicker off and on while deeply disturbing music plays.

Buena Vista Television

At this point you just want to close your eyes and think about happier times for Cory and Topanga.

Buena Vista Television

But the episode continues scaring you. A figure sprints past the group when they're turned around and the traumatic flickering lights + spooky music return.

Buena Vista Television

Then, for the next 10 minutes or so, this episode proceeds to go batshit crazy.

Buena Vista Television

MR. FEENY IS STABBED IN THE BACK WITH SCISSORS AND DIES.

Buena Vista Television

The creepy janitor's dead body is found dumped in a trash can.

Buena Vista Television

The masked killer continues stalking the group in the background.

Buena Vista Television

Jennifer Love Hewitt randomly appears in the episode before the killer murders her with an avalanche of books.

Buena Vista Television

Then Eric is killed the same way while checking on Jennifer.

Buena Vista Television

Eric's death leads to Jack wanting to commit suicide by jumping out of the window.

Buena Vista Television

But Angela comes out and convinces him not to...

Buena Vista Television

THEN THE KILLER PUSHES THEM BOTH OFF THE LEDGE ANYWAY.

Buena Vista Television

Everyone else is dead, so the killer goes to confront Cory, Topanga, and Shawn.

Buena Vista Television

He makes Cory and Topanga hold hands and you're like, wait, what?!

Buena Vista Television

The killer's mask is removed and in THE GREATEST PLOT TWIST IN THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION, it turns out to be Shawn.

Buena Vista Television

Then Cory wakes Shawn up and we find out that he just fell asleep during detention. Hallelujah! All the horrifying crap we've just witnessed was but a mere nightmare.

Buena Vista Television

We learn that Shawn is taking Cory and Topanga's breakup pretty hard and even blaming himself for it. Feeny feels sympathetic for the group and lets them leave detention.

Buena Vista Television

As Feeny leaves the room you think, Aww, now THIS is the happy, beautiful, not-terrifying Boy Meets World I've come to adore!

Buena Vista Television

But when Feeny exits, THIS SHIT HAPPENS.

Buena Vista Television

THE MASKED KILLER FROM SHAWN'S DREAM FOLLOWS THE GROUP OUT OF THE CLASSROOM. That's a horrifying note to casually end on, and if you were even remotely capable of being scared as a kid, surely this episode did some damage, right?
