One of my favorite things about Fernando and Maricruz is that he knew, he fucking knew, the minute he laid eyes on her, that he was going to love her for the rest of his life. He knew that she was the one for him, no one else ever compared. And every single thing he does in the show is to be with her, is for her and eventually his future child, almost all of Sucre’s actions were motivated by his love for Maricruz. The reason why he went to prison, the reason why he broke out, the reason why he traveled all over the fucking continent to get back with her, because he loves her that much.
In any normal guy, this would almost seem too much, too intense, and it would be unappealing. But Sucre is so goddamn earnest and genuine and in love that you can’t help but root for him the entire goddamn time.
