What words were used in the mutual break up? If they didn't actually say break up then it didn't happen.
Okay I don’t remember all the specifics because it was pre-taped (only got to watch once) but (and this line has already been spoiled) “From now on when people ask me who my first girlfriend **was**, I’ll always say Riley Matthews” and Riley replies with something similar regarding Lucas. The whole conversation is basically them accepting their relationship is over due to circumstances and kind of just fondly reminiscing about it. Like I said, it’s very mutual/amicable. Just because the words “I’m breaking up with you” weren’t involved doesn’t mean that it didn’t basically happen. It totally did. It’s exactly how I broke up with my college bf almost.
Contrast that whole scene with Augava who later have a scene together saying they’ll love each other and be each other’s husband/wife no matter what/despite the circumstances……I mean….
