I want to say that I am honestly so happy that Rob Raco/Joaquin is in Season 3. I missed him a lot during Season 2, though at least he returned for one scene late in that season, and of course that made me really happy.
I hope to see lots of great pics and stuff from this event. Sadly Cole won't be there, but honestly I'm just excited that Rob, Casey, and the actor who plays Kevin's dad will participate in this charity soccer game in Vancouver this Saturday.
Here is such a precious moment between Rob Raco and Casey Cott at the Legends & Stars charity soccer game in Vancouver last Saturday! 😃🤩😍
OMG!!! 😃🤩😍 This is making me smile so big! 🤩🤩 I love these boys so damn much; my Joavin heart is sooooo happy! 😍❤️💗💞
Wow, this has totally made my whole day! 😃🙌 I have waited so long to see more photos of these two together, and this is exactly what I wanted and needed! 👌🙏 This is super heartwarming and super heart-melting! ❤️💗
Rob sharing these wonderful photos surely has been my favorite part of this week! 👏👏 I am absolutely blessed, 😇 and I thank him a lot from the bottom of my heart for this! 😘❤️
Back in July, at this year's San Diego Comic Con, Casey Cott confirmed that Kevin and Moose are together, but their relationship gets complicated. Moose wants to stay in the closet, but Kevin doesn't want to hide behind closed doors. Kevin tries to push Moose out of the closet, but Moose is too ashamed to be seen with Kevin in public.
So, there's still a chance for Joavin. This is where I'm hoping for Joaquin to be there for Kevin, and for Kevin to realize that Joaquin really cares about him and to remember how happy he was when he and Joaquin were together, as well as to recall Fangs informing him that Joaquin talked about him all the time.
Joaquin and Kevin deserve better, and I really hope they do rekindle their relationship somehow.
FP was the one who devised the plan for Joaquin to date Kevin just to get information. (Joaquin didn't know who Kevin is before the two met, and during the first time he met Kevin, he was surprised to find out that Kevin is Sheriff Keller's son. Then Joaquin talked about Kevin a lot with Fangs, and that's presumably how FP found out.)
Despite FP's orders, Joaquin developed genuine feelings for Kevin. So, he went on to be romantic, affectionate and sexual with Kevin, just because he was so really in love with him. He didn't even care that he was letting FP down by giving Kevin so much love, and he was even brave enough to stand up for Kevin against FP. I think this is definitely something that proves how much Joaquin loved and cared for Kevin.
Joaquin also talked about Kevin all the time with his friend Fangs. Fangs even told Kevin this.
Joaquin was forced to leave town when things went to hell, and this doesn't mean he wanted to. At heart, he felt so bad about everything, and he still wanted to be with Kevin.
No one can convince me to ship Moose and Kevin.
I don't like that Moose cheated on Midge with Kevin more than once, and also with Cheryl. (This story depicts bad bisexual stereotypes.)
I don't like that Moose used Kevin..since he was never willing to actually be with Kevin while Midge was still alive, and he only went back to Kevin when Midge died.
I don't like that Moose said directly to Kevin, "Damn, we better get laid," right in front of Midge. This presumably caused Midge to become suspicious that Moose was lying to her and cheating on her with Kevin, and decide to look for some fun of her own, which possibly explains why Fangs secretly had a fling with Midge. Then Moose even had the audacity to get pissed when he caught Midge cheating on him with Fangs. All of this happened just before Midge got murdered by the Black Hood.
I hated seeing Kevin and Moose bonding over their hatred for the Southside and getting involved in the "Dark Circle" together, in which they took part in targeting the Serpents and vandalizing the Southside for no good reason, and got away with it. Kevin was totally out of character in this case; it seemed as if Moose brought out the worst in him.
It'll kill me to see Kevin settling for a relationship with Moose while Moose is unwilling to give Kevin what he wants. Moose is still closeted and too ashamed to be seen with Kevin in public, and Kevin puts pressure on him.
I think it sucks that they don't let Rob make it clear for everyone that he's back on Riverdale, and that he can only drop hints at it. Many people don't get why he's been posting all that content related to Joaquin, Joavin, and Riverdale in general. He wouldn't be posting all that stuff if he wouldn't be back. He even did the same thing before he returned late in Season 2.
Anyway, Season 3 is premiering NEXT Wednesday. Then everyone will know for sure that Joaquin is back.
Joaquin is in next week's episode. And he's in juvie with Archie.
Here's a screenshot from the promo video for Episode 3x02:
I wonder if FP sent Joaquin there to look after Archie, as I know that FP is working with Fred (Archie's dad). I hope to see plenty of interaction between Archie and Joaquin.
To stay positive about Joavin, I'm keeping these in mind...
This excerpt from KSiteTV's brief description for Episode 3x02: "Elsewhere, when Moose (guest star Cody Kearsley) decides to join the RROTC, Kevin (Casey Cott) worries he may be pulling away from him."
During Week 4 of Season 3 filming, Rob tweeted, "You wish, Preppy.", and Casey responded with the song "Good Kisser."
I know that Joaquin is in Episode 3x05 titled "The Great Escape" and Episode 3x06. // On September 6th, on the same day Casey tweeted, "In the episode we are currently shooting [referring to Episode 3x06] @kj_apa has the blessing of working with me a lot.", Rob posted a picture of his Riverdale chair with both his real name and his character's name on it; he captioned it with "Let's fall in love."
On September 21st, Rob posted sweet photos of himself with Casey from the Legends & Stars Charity Soccer Match in Vancouver, on the same day the Riverdale account posted their Kevin and Moose promo.
