As of the latest episode of season four, it seems like Musa and Riven are breaking up…again. This comes as no surprise seeing as this couple’s relationship has not been the best. Let’s take a look back at their history:
In season one, Riven was rarely kind to Musa, even though she tried her hardest to get him to notice her. Then, Darcy spelled him and caused him to break Musa’s heart. To be honest, I didn’t see much of a difference in personality between spelled Riven and normal Riven. Either way, I think Musa should have given up and found a decent guy. (That Jared she met later would have done just fine. ;p)
Then, there was season two. Things weren’t perfect, but their relationship had improved. During the fight against Darkar, Musa kissed Riven, and it seemed like they would finally get along. However, by season three, Riven was back to his cocky self. Musa considered breaking up with him (took her long enough…), but then he won her respect by fighting Nabu over her. But did this last? Nope!
In Secret of the Lost Kingdom, our lovely couple was fighting again. They got back together, but now in season four, the feud continues. Does this seem like a problem to anyone, or is it just me? Now, Musa is finally getting the chance to pursue her dream as a singer, but she’s getting no support from the boyfriend department. In fact, Riven seems jealous and even goes so far as to say that her singing stinks! I don’t know about most relationships, but I’d say that insulting a girl’s talent is a BIG no-no! Musa has plenty of reasons to dump him now, don’t you think?
So, are they over? It seems like it, but we’ve seen how resilient they’ve been in the past. They could end up back together. Who knows? If not, then this brings up another question: who is Musa going to end up with? Andy? Jason Queen? (Let’s hope not. There’s something sinister about that guy….) Will a new Specialist be introduced so late into the series? We’ll see! Whatever the case, I hope Musa makes the smart choice and says “Arrivederci!” to Riven.
