Michael Jacobs did an interview with The Wrap’s Linda Ge where he talked about the on going story-line between Riley, Maya, and Lucas. Part 2 of the interview comes out tomorrow after the season finale. We have quoted some of the interview below. Also we found this tweet interesting:

When you say “It’s not a love triangle” could that be because Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis) will be brought into the equation and it’s really a love rectangle?
Everyone will be brought into the equation. To answer this as simply as I can without giving anything away, the “Girl Meets” angle has always been a very important part of the show. Every episode is titled “Girl Meets” something. If we did “Girl Meets Love,” it would not be one episode. It would be a sustained series of episodes in an attempt to explain, for this generation, what the perception of love is, versus what love may actually be, versus are we ready for that at all? Something that is so important cannot be something we tell in one story. But the understanding of how to grow and what’s valuable to these kids will manifest itself over these episodes. We want to do it intelligently, and what we’re not looking to do is a love triangle.
I’ve said this from the beginning: If you look at the pilot, and look at some subsequent episodes, the hints of what we’re doing are very deep-seated, and you’ll understand completely. This series was always about this magnificent friendship between Riley and Maya, and if you look at the differences in the girls you will understand what’s going on now.
Can you elaborate on what you mean by phrases like “It was clear from the pilot,” which you’ve said in the past?
I can’t, because if I explain it, I’ll give it completely away. [laughs] But all you have to do is look at what the pilot was about, and then track the evolution of the two girls and you will understand that this could not possibly be a triangle in these three, at all.
