[Bridge] Network with some switches without STP/RSTP support

I have a network with three RSTP enabled swithes connected to form a
triangle (a ring with three nodes).
Let us say the switches are A, B , C
B and C are not connected with simple ethernet cable but they are
connected through an additional
small switch that doesn't support STP/RSTP. This simple switch has 3 ports,
one is connected to B,
another to C and the third port to a PC.

Does the RSTP will manage to resolve the loop (open the ring)? Will I manage
to reach anyway the PC?

Thank you in advance,
