Okay, I’ve seen these posts where people have watched the episode yet everyone is still so confused but how can you be confused? Everything makes total sense.
The conversation Katy and Topanga had was when Maya wasn’t around. MAYA DID NOT HEAR THEIR CONVERSATION. This was after Katy told Maya that when becoming another person you may learn things about them that they might not know themselves.
But the conversation she had with Topanga points out that you CAN’T become people you have strong feelings for.
Maya has strong feelings for Riley because they’re best friends.
Maya THOUGHT she was becoming Riley when really she was never Riley, and by not becoming Riley, the thing she said about Riley only seeing Lucas as a brother is false.
But Maya thought this was true, so she kept quiet at the end.
And if anything, Maya thinks of Lucas as a brother. Her perspective got mixed up with what she thought was Riley’s perspective because SHE WAS NEVER RILEY.
Seriously, what is so confusing?
(On a side note thing is so Rilaya bait tbh)
