Ok so if u ship victor and rahim’s you do u whatever but not only from a shipping pov but also from a Storytelling POV it has to be benji who he picks because
In the same ep where rahim kisses him he said that he wanted to get back with benji ever since they fought. He loves benji those feelings don’t go away like that in a few hours.
Then felix‘s speech I mean again storytelling wise they wrote it like that for a reason. When he talked about the future and the things vic would do with his bf he said is there a person where it would kill u if u didn’t do those things with them. And how is this supposed to be about rahim? They just met and barely know each other they connect yes but friendship wise makes more sense.
Then victor said he felt something after the kiss that was also what he said about Mia remember? He’s confused which is why Felix makes him see the difference between a crush and love.
Next Isabel she is on board now and the scene she had wit benji was also there for a reason she told him that vic never fought for something as hard as he did for benji and after seeing benji’s parents he could use that kind of love in a family.
Next rahim himself said that he wants a relationship like venji and completely fixated on the idea of being with victor cause he’s the only gay guy so far he connected with. I think he’ll get someone in s3 who will 100% love him but it isn’t vic cause he’s still in a committed relationship with benji and I thin it rahim deserves someone who’s not in love with someone else.
Next benji’s addiction was more explored but I feel a breakdown coming so either they’ll make him relapse or at least almost to make vic see how vulnerable and not always confident benji is. And I want him to support him and maybe go to meetings together and explore benji’s feelings more cause right now we see every character on their own too except him so they better give this boy his own voice in s3 too.
Next the houses. Where rahim lives there is green trees and bushes everywhere and he lives at a brick house with a green door the scene at the end on the street is no green and looks like a rich neighborhood and the wall is gray. Benji’s house has a gray wall but we can’t see the door bell cause in the scene with his sponsor the door is open. And again Story telling wise
Victor just saw benji’s broken face and immediately wanted to talk and explain they the kiss then the confusion then the lightbulb moment so again if u think vic is an asshole who would just go to a guy he just met instead of his bf who he just saw broken then ok be my guest.
Also story telling wise there is just more to tell with venji now that Isabel is on board and vic knows about the addiction and they can finally learn to communicate although if that happens after of before benji’s breakdown idk. But yea they can learn from each other so much and not throwing everything away at the first sign of trouble.
Next parallel to Isabel and Armando. Armando met a another woman like vic met rahim it’s new shiny and for the eminent probably easier to handle but what happens Armando and Isabel want to fight for their marriage and the same can be said for venji.
Then vic needs a gay fiend like come on especially now where he told Simon that he thinks he can do this on his own now so rahim who also came out and it went smoothly would be such a great friend to have for vic.
Next the message this show would send to just throw everything thing away just cause things got hard would be terrible for this kind of show
And also vic jumping from one relationship to another would also be a wrong message + the thing with gays can’t be friends apparently like such a stupid stereotype. So I think they did this for drama to get s3 and to keep us on our toes but the decision is totally made and they’ll be great friends and venji can work through their issues
