Riverdale is committed to mixing up its romantic couples this season — and this one might be the oddest combination of all.
TVLine has an exclusive sneak peek at this Wednesday’s episode (The CW, 9/8c), and in it, Jughead shares one of his gruesome comic book stories with Veronica, who’s seemingly impressed by the gore. After some debate about his story’s message, Veronica changes the subject, revealing that she heard Archie and Cheryl have split up, and “in the end, they didn’t do much more than neck.”
Jughead admits he’s having trouble keeping up with “the horny teens of Riverdale High” — his words, not ours — and Veronica locks eyes with him as she contends that high school should be a place “where boys can chase girls, and vice versa.” Jughead is woefully oblivious, though, and doesn’t even catch when Ronnie admits she’s been “feigning an interest in comic books” to get his attention. These two have been getting closer ever since Veronica’s make-out party, and they do share an interest in old movies. But are we buying them as an actual couple yet?
In this week’s episode, titled “Tales in a Jugular Vein,” “Principal Featherhead takes aim at the negative influence comic books have over kids, just as Jughead is tasked by Pep Comics to write four tales for a new issue,” per the official description.
Press PLAY above for a sneak peek at this week’s Riverdale, and then tell us in the comments: Are you rooting for Jughead and Veronica to make it official?
I think Jughead fits best with the Tabitha girl that works at Pop’s, and they should’ve kept Archie and Cheryl together because hot redheads rock.
Vughesd is better then those lack luster and boring ships they pushing barchie jabitha veggie and tangs and the crap they pulling now with making varchie only friends and having no bughead interactions at all and then honesty not doing choni any favors having no real alternative love interest for either of them with this bull oset storyline for Cheryl and Toni I guess just being around for her
so ya bughead only good option unless they get there head out there ass and start pushing the ships that actually got them attention
They are admittedly cute, but I am forever a Bughead.
