Riley Falls for an Amish Guy on Rumspringa on 'Friends with Benefits' (VIDEO)

'Friends with Benefits'NBC wrapped the inaugural run of 'Friends With Benefits' (Fri., 8PM ET on NBC) this past Friday with a special guest appearance from 'Greek's Cappie. But Scott Michael Foster wasn't the same party-loving frat boy we came to know and love there ... at least, he wasn't when Riley tracked him down after their fling.

But that's because old Cappie, now Daniel, was a fine, upstanding member of an Amish community. Riley was simply one of the best parts of his Rumspringa. While it's generally not as crazy as depicted on television, this is a time of adolescence for many young Amish that can be a bit more lax on the rules.

Maybe not as loose living as happened with Daniel and Riley, but this is comedy after all. And in this reality, Daniel really cut loose during his Rumpsringa and found a way into Riley's heart. That made things a bit more awkward when she dropped the l-bomb on him, and then his wife showed up. Clearly their tryst meant more to her than him, which is the opposite of what she's used to.

Does this mean Riley will learn something from this? Considering the show slipped below 2 million viewers for much of its run, it's unlikely NBC will give 'FWB' another run this winter or even next summer. But as a fun, summer diversion, we've seen worse.
