Besides the fact that you love the way Rio treats Beth, Why love him ? (I love him too but I want your opinion about him)
Alright, so I’m going to try to leave Beth out of my explanation of why I love Rio so much.
First off, Rio does not strike a physically imposing figure - he’s pretty darn skinny. But the energy he gives off is incredible. You wouldn’t notice him because of his size, but you’d sure as hell notice him when he stepped into a room because of the confidence that is oozing from every pore on that man’s body.
There’s just something about someone who can command a room without being a bully about it that’s appealing. Rio hasn’t ever blatantly shouted before, but with a few well placed words, we can understand clearly what he’s feeling.
And I think that’s why he differs so much from Dean. We’ve seen Dean shout a few times to get what he wants, and I think that shows great insight into Dean - he’s a bully, and I think that’s why we’re starting to see him fall apart because he’s no longer in control.
I’ve compared Rio to felines in the past. You know that sort of energy that a big cat gives off, and that something as simple as walking you can see the muscles flexing beneath the surface and you know that it could kill you in a flash - that’s the sort of energy I get from Rio. He doesn’t say much, doesn’t do much, but you know what he could do if he really wanted to.
Also, the fact that I don’t think we’ve seen even 10% of what Rio is or what he is capable of is extremely enticing.
There’s so much left for us to see. He’s powerful without being forceful, and has developed into an insanely complex character.
There’s control and restraint and a mind working ten steps ahead of the rest of the world behind those impenetrable dark eyes, and I absolutely love it.
