Girl Meets Master Plan

Shawn & Katy First Impressions

First Impressions

Having been told by Maya, when they first met, that she only has "half a mom," Shawn is irritated to discover that on Maya's fourteenth birthday, her mother is nowhere to be seen. When he shares that obvious fact with Cory and Topanga, he suggests that they do something to rectify the situation.  However, when Cory claims that his scheming days are long over, Shawn (after Topanga casually drops Katy Hart's name, and the place and address of her work during the conversation)  for Maya's sake, decides to strike out on his own.  Entering the Nighthawk Diner, Shawn

behind, as Katy lets slip out that includes Maya's father, a fact she has purposefully kept from her daughter, by taking the entire blame for the breakup of their marriage.  Further discussion is interrupted, as Katy's jeweler friend, Camille, arrives, delivering the customized locket Katy has ordered for Maya's birthday present.  When Katy
Giving Maya Her Gift

Presenting Maya Her Locket

regretfully reveals that she is still fifty dollars short for the final payment, a chastened Shawn provides the money.  A grateful Katy promises to repay him, but Shawn insists that all he wants is to take the picture designed to fit inside the locket.  Later, Shawn and Katy find her daughter still at The Matthews' Apartment, and he deliberately tells Maya that she has badly misjudged her mother.  When Katy asks
Maya Makes A Wish

Maya's Makes Her Birthday Wish

why he did so, when she told him not to, Shawn replies that Maya deserves to love the parent that stayed.  Katy and Maya share a new understanding of one another, as Katy reveals she worked extra shifts to afford the gift she knew Maya wanted.   When Shawn offers to retrieve the locket from her purse, Katy objects, but both Maya and Riley tell her to let him do it.  After Katy places the locket on Maya, a happy Shawn takes their picture.  Later, Shawn boasts a bit to Cory how he brought Maya and Katy together, apparently with no inkling of the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Matthews clan.  As Katy holds up her daughter's birthday cake, Riley urges her to make a wish, Maya takes a significant look at the sight of Shawn and Katy standing together, before blowing out the candles.
