Warning: Spoilers ahead. Calling all Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans — your dreams just came true! On Wednesday, January 22, the hit CW series returned from its winter hiatus and viewers got a major shock when a familiar face rolled into Riverdale from Greendale. Yep, that’s right, there was a major CAOS crossover and fans are so shook!
Unfortunately, Sabrina Spellman didn’t cast any spells on Archie and the gang, but Billy Marlin — played by Ty Wood — from the Baxter High Ravens football team did receive a rather masterful interrogation from Betty Cooper — played by Lili Reinhart. Riverdale High’s resident teen detective made it her mission to find out if the Stonewall Prep football team plays fair before they take on the Riverdale High Bulldogs. Throughout her investigation, Betty discovered that Stonewall players purposefully hurt their opponents in order to win games.
So, she did what she does best and interviewed a number of football players from the surrounding high schools. That was where Billy’s surprise appearance came into play. While he might be known to CAOS viewers as the jock who was mean to Sabrina and the weird sisters, he actually proved to be quite helpful to Betty during their chat at Pop’s Diner.
As fans know, this isn’t the first Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina crossover. In the third season of Riverdale, a minor character named Ben Button jumped out of a window seemingly killing himself after playing a deadly game of Gryphons and Gargoyles. Then, he briefly appeared at the end of an episode of CAOS when delivered a pizza to a Greendale resident. Naturally, fans were confused and wondered if it meant Ben was still alive or if the events in CAOS took place prior to the events in Riverdale.
Since then, Ben hasn’t been spotted in either show, As viewers know, nothing stays dead in Riverdale — or Greendale.
