After 10 long years Nickelodeon show Zoey 101 finally resolves THAT time capsule cliffhanger.

Starring Jamie-Lynn Spears, the episode saw the group of friends make a time capsule,and in it Zoey left a DVD message explaining what her friends meant to her including Chase Matthews (Sean Flynn), her long-suffering secret admirer. She later told Chase he would find out what she revealed about her feelings in ten years time… and now show runner Dan Schneider has FINALLY given fans what they’ve been waiting for.

And the release last week of creator Dan Schneider’s “What Did Zoey Say?”reunion clip answered the question on everybody’s mind still, 10 years later. In a series of tweets sent on September 18 2015, Dan teased fans that there was a ‘fun little surprise coming today’ before hinting that he was ‘smiling just thinking about the reaction’. Well understandably fans went a little bit crazy when they figured out it was Zoey’s time capsule DVD and that evening TeenNick Friday Night premiered the short video before it was uploaded to YouTube In the video, Michael (Christopher Massey) turns up in the middle of Chase’s proposal to girlfriend Alyssa, explaining that he ‘flew to California, rented a shovel, went to PCA and dug it up’ all so that Chase could finally discover what Zoey had to say. The top-rated comment by Reddit user Spinwheeling noted how Chase’s line in the new video is “classic Teen Nick.” Another user, yeartwo, called the dialogue “300% Teen Nick.” The reaction on Tumblr wasn’t as kind, however, as users threw out question after question to Schneider’s vague revelation. When Michael reads Chase the script he copied from watching Zoey’s DVD, for example, she casually says she thinks Chase might have feelings for her and that she might reciprocate.

User slytherin-away-from-you criticizes Chase’s character, who was in the midst of proposing to a girl who isn’t Zoey, for capriciously ditching said girl upon hearing Zoey say he might love him. Seeing as the show takes place in real time, another user, apathyfairy, questioned the legitimacy of Chase’s surprise. “Wouldn’t they have stayed in touch?” she said. “They both had cell phones and laptops, wouldn’t they have talked or texted?
