It’s about time! We know you’ve been guessing for months who it was that Minkus ended up marrying, and now, we can tell you — and yes, you met her on ‘Boy Meets World.’
On September 11, Girl Meets World will air a special episode all about Asperger’s Syndrome. Disney spoke with three different experts during the episode to be sure that everything was authentic and that the facts could spark conversations within families. Additionally, that episode will officially introduce Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis)’s mother — the wife of Minkus (Lee Norris), for the first time.
And the mother is . . . Kristanna Loken! Yes, Jennifer Bassett Minkus will officially be introduced, Disney has confirmed. You may remember her from Boy Meets World when she showed up as Jen, a hottie in school who captured everyone’s attention, especially Shawn’s (Ryder Strong). She dated Shawn briefly (for an episode) in season four; they broke up when Shawn chose Corey over his relationship with her.
She’s probably most memorable though as the girl who handcuffed him when she returned in season five’s First Girlfriend’s Club, along with his other angry exes.
Familiar Faces Everywhere
Of course, the show has had a great deal of stars from Boy Meets World return this season. Along with the main cast, Ben Savage as Corey and Danielle Fishel as Topanga, we’ve also seen the return of Matthew Lawrence as Jack, Will Friedle as Eric, Anthony Tyler Quinn as Mr. Turner, Trina McGee as Angela, and even Blake Clark returns as Shawn’s late father Chet. So, we can just add this to the list!
In case you forgot, here’s a clip of Kristanna on Boy Meets World‘s season four, episode 11. Are you excited? Did you guess that Jen would be Minkus’ wife?! Let us know all your thoughts, then tune in to the episode on Friday, September 11 at 8:30PM on Disney.
