So Shawn was the rebel kid, right? Always getting Cory into sticky situations and just barely getting out in one piece. Of course, by the end of the episode, he realizes his mistakes and swears to learn from them, but there’s always more lessons to learn in the next show.
You could count on life lessons showing up. But oddly enough, you couldn’t count on family members. In the episode where Cory messes up his hair, Shawn has a plan to fix it. He calls up his sister, Stacy, who gives them advice. Stacy knows everything about hair, since she’s a girl, and it’s the mid-1990’s. You would think that Stacy could offer other advice for the next problem that arose. Nope, sorry. Stacy only appears in that one episode. Then poof! She’s gone, never to be seen again.
