Love, Victor ending explained

Who does Victor Salazar end up with romantically?

Victor Salazar romantically reconciles with Benji Campbell at the end of the series.

Despite Victor having new love interests in the form of Rahim (Anthony Keyvan) and church-goer Nick (Nico Greetham), his heart always lies with his first love Benji.

However, the third season saw Benji resolve to overcome his alcoholism and address his own issues, with Benji's father (Kevin Rahm) even interfering to stop his son from getting back together with Victor who he considers bad for Benji.

Victor makes an impassioned plea to stop Benji from moving away and going to boarding school but Benji initially rejects him.

However, Benji eventually decides to resist his parents and doubts and romantically reconciles with Victor atop the Ferris wheel at the Winter Carnival in the final instalment.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com about the ending, actor George Sear said: "I was hoping... I was like, 'Oh, it'd be nice if they're together'. And I think, you know, I wanted that. But I did think, 'Well, theirs is a young relationship. It's their first love, you know? Who knows which way the writers are going to choose to let this play out.'"

Meanwhile, Michael Cimino did not have any doubts about who Victor's final choice would be, noting: "I think Victor is too sentimental to let Benji go. Victor is like, I think that's his whole background... his mom and his dad met when they were in high school, and they fell in love. And he very much has that idea in his head of like, falling in love with the person in high school and being with them for the rest of his life. And yeah, I think that is what he wanted."

Additionally, series co-creator Isaac Aptaker noted that the Ferris wheel was always the planned location for the ending and that Victor would end up with Benji, adding: "I think we knew we wanted to get back to the Ferris wheel from the beginning – that always felt really, really full circle."

Executive producer Brian Tanen concurred, noting: "We wanted it to feel as much of an ending as the beginning. So, you know, this sense of these characters sort of wrapping up their stories, but also launching into the world as more fully formed young adults."

Speaking to RadioTimes.com, series co-creator Elizabeth Berger revealed there was some debate in the writers' room about some character journeys.

Berger noted: "Yeah, I mean, I think in our writers' room, there's always vigorous debate and conversation of who ends up with who, who gets a happy ending, who gets a bittersweet ending.

"It was really important to us to give everybody a beautiful ending here that left people feeling good.

"I mean, I think the point of view of this show is one of optimism and one of hope, and one where, you know, we see our characters struggle and fall down sometimes as they try and navigate life, but ultimately thrive and succeed.

"And we wanted everyone to feel like they were going into this beautiful next chapter sort of setup for big wins and to succeed. And, of course, we debated the details of what that looked like. But that was sort of our guiding principle as we figured out everybody's endings."
