One of the cast members brought up the theory that its Benji's door but Victors just there to turn him down in person and I think I heard my heart shatter?

I'm just still so pissed they made Rahim into a love interest because everything that they did together could be interpreted as platonic the whole time.
If we ignore the fact that the karaoke song (chosen by Rahim) was kind of romantic-sounding and the slow dancing at the wedding,
skipping school, going to a nail salon, going to a gay bar. I've never skipped school before but I've done that stuff with my friends before! None of that had to be romantic. Even Victor calling Rahim an "objectively handsome dude" can be platonic. You can find your friends adorable or attractive but not want to date them!!!
I really wish they had given Victor a gay friend who he can confide in (without telling him secrets he shouldn't have), and they can talk about guys with together, instead of totally derailing Venji and the issues they still need to work out. Simon and Bram appear perfect in the books, show, and movie, but they also dealt with their share of stuff. I think Victor thinks of Simon still as this perfect encapsulation of what being gay is, when it is definitely more complicated than that and every gay person's experience is different.
Plus I think it's important to look at the parallels between Victor's parents and Venji. I mean Benji legit said that Victor is the person he loves and last season he told him that Victor "doesn't make [him] anxious all the time". I liked how this season focused on the fact that once they've gone past the puppy dog stage, they start to realize that each other aren't perfect. Victor made a lot of mistakes too, telling Rahim about Benji's AA stuff, and Rahim sort of used it as a way to get Victor to go out with him. Rahim acted as a friend and confidant more than a romantic interest, so it felt kind of weird that Rahim kissed him at the wedding.
tldr: I hope the writers didn't fuck up Venji for good, and Victor realizes that he did some questionable shit to Benji too, that neither of them are perfect but they love each other. Also both of them should probably go to therapy tbh. End rant.

I just wanna say one thing about the whole Isa and Benji thing, you guys accepted the fact that it took benji along time to be who he is and that he even become an alcoholic because he didn’t or couldn’t accept himself being gay which is fine and valid but y’all can’t allow the brown religious woman to have some time to accept and unlearn something she’s been thought for 40 years, for people who say u want to accept others don’t seem like y’all accept victor on wanting to give him mom more time nor his mom on getting to terms with it all. Let her also have the same compassion and understanding y’all give benji on his coming out and let her also have time like y’all let benji have time too

This is, in fact, the first time (I think) that we get a shot where we are in Benji’s head for once. We are right there with him, experiencing his emotional reaction to seeing Victor with Rahim. To me, this bodes well for season 3 development for Benji. Why would they spend season 2 dropping hints that the boy has depth, only to culminate in this shot where we finally get a chance to experience something through Benji’s eyes (instead of always seeing Benji through Victor’s eyes), only to throw Benji out in season 3? It wouldn’t make any sense.
Also? They spent a good chunk of s2 on a mental health plot, with Felix’s mom (my favorite plot of the season. Stellar actors, all handled with so much care and nuance. Chefs kiss.) Do we really think they’re going to throw away the opportunity to explore Benji’s addiction? I really really don’t think they’re gonna throw that out. In fact, I see that being a pretty pivotal plot point in s3. They certainly have been laying the groundwork since “What Happens in Willacoochee” or however you spell that silly name.

In Defense of Benji Pt. 1/2
I’ve seen a bunch of complaints about how awful or OOC Benji was in the second half of Love, Victor S2. I think that’s pretty unfair and can at least partially be chalked up to the lack of Benji’s POV throughout the season. I’m going to go through episode by episode to show where Benji’s coming from and why he does what he does. This isn’t to say Benji was perfect or that Victor is in the wrong. They both made mistakes and failed to communicate. But demonizing Benji is just not in line with what happened. (Spoilers for all of S2 of Love, Victor below)
2x01-2x04: I’m not going to cover these in detail because any conflicts between Victor and Benji early on don’t amount to much and are pretty quickly resolved. 
2x05 (Gay Gay): Benji and his bandmates make some nasty comments about jocks in front of Victor. Specifically Benji says “Victor’s in the early stages of jock recovery, he just escaped the cult of cheap body spray and casual misogyny” and “Thank god, I don’t have to sit with the basketball girlfriends and do the whole Go Grizzlies dance.”
Benji pretty clearly messes up here, which can be traced back to the fact that he doesn’t understand that Victor does genuinely love playing basketball. Once he realizes that, he goes to Victor’s first game, apologizes and does the Go Grizzlies dance with the basketball girlfriends, and Victor and Benji are good again.
2x06 (Sincerely, Rahim): In the beginning Benji commiserates with Victor about his mom and talks about mentoring Rahim. When Victor calls him mid-episode and talks about how cool his mom was with Rahim, Benji is wary. Isabel has treated him terribly for months and it has to hurt to hear that she’s so much better with Rahim than she’s evernbeen with him. Then, at the end of the episode, Benji apologizes for not being supportive enough about Victor’s excitement about his mom, does it again, and then apologizes again.
What I think is missing here is Benji expressing how hard it’s been for him to watch Victor go through this with his mom for months or for Benji to be repeatedly exposed to Isabel’s homophobia. Victor sees this as a conflict between him and his mom, but Benji is not just a supportive outsider. He has also been wronged by Isabel and has (at this point) received no apology from her and no real evidence that she’s going to change. Of course, he’s doubtful that this time she’s really changing. 
I’ll also point out that Victor almost outs himself in front of Adrian on accident, but Isabel is able to cover it up.
2x07 (Table for Four): Benji’s parents secretly invite Victor to his birthday dinner where Victor finds out about Benji being in AA, which Benji is hugely embarrassed by. He later calls it “the part of my life that I hate.” This precipitates the worst fight the two have ever had. 
Benji is clearly deeply ashamed by being an alcoholic, which I think Victor sort of recognizes but doesn’t really get because Benji’s never talked to him about it. Victor wants to know why Benji didn't share this really important part of his life with him and Benji asks him to just let it go. I’ll point out that Victor has repeatedly asked Benji to let things go (about his mom, about coming out to the school) while this is the first time we ever see Benji ask the same in return. 
Victor doesn’t, and then Benji blows up at him and says some really awful things. Like I said at the beginning, I’m not making Benji out to be flawless. Throwing Victor’s early coming out experiences and his mom in his face is really shitty. And it’s clear that if Benji weren’t really embarrassed and upset he wouldn’t say those things. At the same time, he’s not . . . wrong. He has by and large been patient and understanding during a difficult time in Victor’s life. And all Benji is asking for is that on his birthday after being unwillingly outed as an alcoholic to his boyfriend is for Victor not to push him on it and Victor does anyway.
Later that night we get a rare moment of Benji POV, through Felix oddly enough, when Felix tells Victor how hard it’s been to see him struggle with his mom. Victor then texts Benji off-screen and asks him to come over. They make up, start kissing, and Victor suggests they go to his room. Note, Benji knows that Isabel isn’t there but he would have no idea if Pilar and Adrian were there or at their dad’s or somewhere else. Victor is the one who knows Adrian is in the next room.
Part 2 coming soon!

A bit sad we did not get to see Victor and Benji more lovey dovey this season. (It was expected with the time jump thing.) There were plenty of amazing moments, don’t get me wrong. The hand thing Benji says he will do whenever he wants to touch Victor (heart-breaking yet sO endearing). Their kisses. The DANCE. You know what dance I’m talking about. And more! These are at the top of my head rn. But I wish we had seen them more at Benji’s house. It was said that Victor had been going there more bc obvsly Isabel did not want Benji in her house (or if he were, he was ill at ease), yet we only saw them twice at Benji’s house. First time they were interrupted in their make-out session. Second time it ended with them taking a break... Anywayyyyy. It is a shame. If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll see that I think it’s understandable for them to have struggles, but I wish we had a bit less drama and more fluff for these two boys.

They need to give venji a chance now where Isabel is on board and now that vic knows about the addiction he can hopefully talk to benji and they can work on their relationship and not throw everything away cause things got hard and vic and rahim had one day of fun like let them be friends not a couple. Also the scene between Isabel and benji at the end was so good and like she said she never saw vic fight that hard for something he’s not going to give that up cause he had fun with someone for a while he just met also what a stupid message that would be from the show like if you’re relationship gets hard just find another like no just like Armando and isabell venji have to fight for their love and not give up already. Who doesn’t have fights even big ones in a relationship? It’s normal not toxic

This is your friendly reminder that you can love Rahim but not want him to be with Victor at the same time. 😉
