If the comic series wasn’t enough to rattle our brains wishing Archie and Betty would end up together, CW series Riverdale has compelled the viewers to debate over the ever-popular love triangle.
- A mystery- Riverdale
- Going back in time
- Riverdale season 4: a game-changer
“I think the idea of Archie and Betty is really cool just because it’s so iconic”, KJ Apa, who plays Archie, shared in one of the Buzzfeed videos talking about Archie and Betty as the endgame. “And I think Archie and Betty being endgame is something really cool … I think the fans would really love that” Sure, Archie and Betty as endgame is what we are really looking forward to. .
A mystery – Riverdale
The fictional town of Riverdale is ridden with serial killers, conspiracies, voyeurs, and cults. Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, and Jughead Jones are high schoolers who are always game to solve those mysteries and free the town of shadows and evils.
Riverdale season 4 is all about the sexual tension between Archie and Betty. While Jughead is busy getting over the Stonewall Prep debacle, Veronica is reeling with tension because of her father’s deteriorating health.
All through this time, Archie and Betty, who were neglected by their partners, come a little too close, giving the viewers a chance to dream about team “Barchie”.
At this point, one can only say that Archie and Betty as endgame sounds perfectly poetic.
In a May 2019 interview with US Weekly, series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that he personally believes that the duo should end up together, “I think that that’s one of the dynamics we haven’t played is the idea of Archie and Betty together romantically”, he said. “I think in a teen show that if we somehow went seven years in that and never saw that, I think it would be a failure”.
Going back in time
Riverdale shows in the beginning how Archie and Betty had been next-door neighbours since they were little.
While both of them had a little crush on each other, Betty evidently had it stronger.
Enters the rich heiress Veronica Lodge and sweeps Archie off his feet. Cut to a few episodes later, Betty gets over her crush and falls for Archie’s best friend, Jughead Jones. The couples double date frequently at pop’s diner and solve mysteries together while being there for each other through thick and thin.
Riverdale season 4: a game-changer
Riverdale season 4 brought back the push and pull of attraction between Archie and Betty, while their separate relationships were being challenged.
As the tension simmers between the couple, Betty and Archie find comfort in each other.
Riverdale season 4 is the final leg of their high school journey and will only open up to more possibilities in the future.
Since the show teased this relationship in its first few episodes, it will only be perfect for it to come full circle down the road.
