  • In Girl Meets Farkle, they all try to support Farkle when he thinks that he may be on the autism spectrum.
  • In Girl Meets Texas (Part 1, 2, & 3), the love triangle is the center plot and this becomes the biggest Rucaya episode. They (along with Zay & Farkle) go to Texas to support Lucas who was signed up by Maya and Riley to ride Tombstone the bull (it was accidental Maya and Riley thought that it was a sheep). Maya doesn't want Lucas to ride the bull because she thinks he'll get hurt, Riley on the other hand supports Lucas. This makes Maya mad at Lucas and states that if he rides the bull she wouldn't talk to him. When he does so anyway she doesn't talk to him and watches the bull riding from afar. When Lucas makes it out fine Riley realizes Maya couldn't watch because she likes Lucas. Riley & Maya then goes back to the house and Riley tells Lucas her "true" feelings for him, that she likes him as a brother (this was something that Maya thought that Riley felt in Girl Meets Yearbook ). Riley then states that she knows that Maya thinks that she like Lucas as brother and so using that as an excuse Riley lies about her feelings for Lucas so that Maya could have a chance with him. Lucas looks confused and heartbroken when Riley tells him this. In the following episode Lucas is still confused about what Riley told him and during the campfire Riley reveals Maya's true feelings for Lucas. After Riley, Farkle & Zay leaves the campfire Lucas and Maya talk and Lucas almost kisses Maya. In the last episode of the trilogy Lucas and Maya goes on two dates however they both have nothing to talk about and it is awkward and both dates don't turn out well, as for Riley she and Charlie go on a date but the results of that date is never shown. Before Riley's date with Charlie however Farkle makes Riley realize her feelings for Lucas aren't brotherly but because Riley wants Maya to be happy she makes Farkle promise not to tell anyone about her feelings and he agrees but states he will reveal her real feelings to Lucas if she doesn't come clean sooner or later. In the end things between the three are left kind of awkward and unclear but when Maya and Riley are at the bay window they agree that it will be the two of them forever no matter what happens in the future.
  • In Girl Meets the New Year, the love triangle is again the center plot and this becomes another big episode for Rucaya. Farkle gives Riley until midnight to reveal her true feelings to everyone or else he will do it himself. At the New Years party that Riley is hosting, Charlie brings up the couple game. Riley is reluctant to play but after Charlie edges Lucas on and he accepts the three pairings (Charlie and Riley, Lucas and Maya and Farkle and Isadora) then play the game. During the game Lucas, Maya and Riley get questions that reference their current situation and past moments that they shared. (Questions asked: Lucas' question: How would you describe your personality?: library? (Lucas and Riley) or campfire? (Lucas and Maya), Maya's question: Is it possible to love two people at the same time?, Riley's question: Have you ever kept a secret from somebody you love?). None of them answer those three questions and with Riley's question, she ends the game. After the game everyone heads to the roof. On the roof Maya has a conversation with Lucas and she states her first nice thing to Lucas which was "it's one minute til midnight and i'm glad you're standing here" to which he then replies with "Wow that makes up for everything". Riley (who just broke things off between her and Charlie) witnesses the whole conversation and she is shown with a heartbroken look on her face. Farkle realizes that Riley isn't going to say anything and just when she's about to leave the roof, Farkle admits the truth about Riley's feelings. Everyone then leaves the roof (except Lucas, Maya and Riley) and as Farkle and Isadora are leaving, he apologizes to Lucas, Maya and Riley and says he hopes that they can forgive him and then wishes them a happy New Year and then leaves with Isadora. After Farkle reveals that Riley still loves Lucas, the three of them then sit on a bench on the roof with things between them left awkward and unclear again. The episode ends with a cliffhanger of sorts for Girl Meets Legacy.
