Spoilers for 'MacGyver' Season 5 Episode 1 'Resort + Desi + Riley + Window Cleaner + Witness'

It's been a bearing question for a while now, did Riley move out of Mac's? Well, the premiere of 'MacGyver' Season 5 Episode 1 'Resort + Desi + Riley + Window Cleaner + Witness' gave us the answer we've been looking for. Yes, Riley moved out, and now she has an assignment with Desi at the Zuric Grand and its awkward as awkward can be. Some fans were devastated, other's held their ground. Once in, with Riley being "hurt", the duo try their best to find files that would link Paula's two identities. Fans indeed like the duo as a team though, and quite enjoy their awkward phase right now. The fight scene also had fans riled up. 

"Riley really moved out #MacGyver," wrote one fan with abundant sad emojis. But fans did notice that Riley and Mac work similarly when it comes to their assignments. One fan wrote, "Both Riley and Mac wanted to take the less violent approach to their missions while Desi and Taylor rather go violent #MacGyver." Yet another wrote, "If Mac & Riley donโ€™t kiss imma be upset. #MacGyver"



 



 



 


Either way, even though we just wish that Riley and Desi could just talk it out, they''re still a badass team - some may even say better than Mac and Russ. "The awkward between Riley and Desi is so high @Trizzio #[email protected] #MacGyver," wrote one fan. Another added, "Desi and Queen Riley scene in the elevator was awkward. #MacGyver".

"Who needs Mac when we got the dream team riley and desi  #MacGyver," wrote one fan. Another wrote, "Riley and Desi. Small team but a strong team.  #MacGyver #MacGyverCBS".



 



 

 



 



 

Even more interesting, fans are hoping that Riley and Desi become more than frenemies. "ok but imagine if riley & desi forgot about mac & became gfs  #MacGyver." wrote one fan. Another added, "okay but imagine desi and riley as girlfriends... #macgyver"



 



 

The team entering an elite and "only by referral" hotel that is used by international criminals for the perfect hideout was probably the best way to start of Season 5 premiere of one of CBS's most-watched dramatic crime shows. The love triangle that is Mac, Riley, and Desi has been the center of attention since Season 4 - so here we are hoping and waiting for some answers. 

'MacGyver' Season 5 airs on Fridays at 8 pm EST on CBS
