The 12 Boys of Degrassi: Riley!
Day 5 of our Degrassi-boy-abration brings us to: ♥Riley♥!
He used to be stressed-out 24/7... but then he got off steroids, into anger management classes and yoga, and into Zane's arms. (Don't you just love them together?) Now that Riley's out at school and over the whole self-hatred thing, he seems infinitely more relaxed and happy. Watching the old Riley was intense, but watching the new Riley is inspiring. I reeeeally hope angry, messed-up-in-the-head Riley is gone for good.
Aww, here's the Riley I love. Can I have a pink football shirt, Riley? I'll totally wear it.
My favorite Riley episode is "In Your Eyes," where he and Zane first get together. I can't watch that ep without smiling at my TV / laptop. Riley just looks SO happy when they're dancing at the LGBT mixer. You'll find "In Your Eyes" and lots of other memorable Riley moments in our Riley Playlist.
What are your favorite Riley moments, quotes, or kisses? Post them in the comments and let's do some Riley bonding.
