I’m as guilty as anyone for loving Riario and for writing sympathetic Riario/, even woobie Riario, but can we all not forget that while Riario was not in his right mind and not guilty of Clarice’s murder, he’s killed plenty of people. Right back in the first episode, someone has to die because the fake Pope is a blabbermouth. He killed a woman who turned out to be his mother in pre-canon. Yes, Riario always has a cause/reason/excuse but neither he nor Leo are innocents and some of those deaths must be classed as murder.
(also remember when he threw Zo and Lucrezia overboard? He didn’t expect them to survive, unless he gives Lu a lot more credit than canon suggests! That was an intended execution.)
