Based on the ending of the episode, it is not known for sure if Jonathan Turner will survive or not. However, in the season 5 finale Boy Meets World: Graduation (1998), Stuart Minkus says hi to him, while Mr. Turner remained off screen. This let viewers know that he did survive, but may or may not be in a wheelchair. It was not until the Girl Meets World (2014) episode Girl Meets World: Girl Meets the New Teacher (2015) that it is revealed that Mr. Turner married his nurse and became the superintendent that hired Cory as a teacher.
