However, when Rio was reunited with the gang, he revealed he was kept in a tiny cell and unable to sleep for long periods of time.
He also revealed he was buried alive and thought that was how his life would end. But fans think Rio is lying about his experience and is working alongside Alicia in exchange for his freedom.
One fan theorised: “Rio tells the group that he could hear the sound of a mosque everyday when held captive. However, when they go visit the place, it’s just a dessert with nothing around.”
