Relationship History

Riley first met Fitch in "I'm Not That Guy " where after being dateless to a work party the two share a dance and chat the night away. In "There's Something Fitchy going on here" jealous Ben tries to break the couple up with no luck. Fitch instead admits to Ben he is beginning to fall in love with Riley. Riley and Fitch then share a special evening together.  In "New Bonnie Vs. Old Ben" Fitch suprises Riley after spending days away in Africa. In "The Slump" Fitch confesses his feeling to Riley by dropping the big "I LOVE YOU" bomb. In "Never Ben in Love" Fitch is back in Africa where Riley wishes he would stay because as wonderful as he is, he’s as equally annoying and pretentious - or so Riley says. Riley wants to end things with Fitch but before she gets a chance to; she gets news that he’s dead.While Riley’s had to deal with the guilt of wanting to dump her deceased boyfriend, an even more awkward situation comes when Fitch’s estranged father wants her to tell him all about his son. At first she’s apprehensive, which she should be seeing as though she barely knew the guy, but when she learns how highly Fitch spoke her she has to go along. Apparently she’s the reason Fitch reached out to make amends with his dad and confide in him his plans to marry Riley.Riley now has to fake her feelings for Fitch, which she fails at miserably because even Danny can see through her ruse. He all but calls her a liar but when Riley expresses her desire to actually try and put forth some real feeling in her eulogy, Danny finds that they’ve both been lying. After finding several “Riley you’re the only one who understands me” and “Riley I love you” messages on Fitch’s laptop, he comes across one where Fitch is breaking up with her! Via video chat! Danny manages to show Riley the break up video before she has a chance to give her speech. Unfortunately, the video gets broadcast to the entire room and an egg-faced Riley defends herself by telling everyone she was going to break up with him first. This is quite shocking indeed, but not as shocking as Fitch’s ghost showing up and being utterly heartbroken by her news.Turns out he wasn’t dead after all; just roaming around an African jungle thinking about his life.When the two are finally alone, he does pop the question but Riley turns him down gently saying he’s just not the one for her. We all know who is though. In "Lights! Camera! No Action!" Riley and Fitch have a short fling in attempt to ease the pain after Riley's breakup with Ben.
