Get ready, guys, because according to creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, this week’s Riverdale episode is about to be a total tearjerker. That’s right, the show’s executive producer recently took to Instagram and shared a sneak peek from the upcoming installment, set to air on Wednesday, April 29, and teased that it’s an “extremely emotional and cathartic episode.” From the looks of it, something pretty intense is set to go down between Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz.
That’s not all. Previously, a promo for the same episode showed that some seriously epic #Barchie content would also be coming soon. For those who missed it, Lili Reinhart‘s character, Betty Cooper, shocked the world when she locked lips with her lifelong BFF, Archie Andrews, played by KJ Apa, during April 15’s episode. Well, you better prepare yourselves, people, because their forbidden romance is not slowing down anytime soon!
A short, but seemingly emotional clip, showed the two characters laying in bed together and holding hands.
“Archie, why are we here?” Betty said in the short clip. The redhead replied, “I don’t know, but it’s nice. Right?”
Yep, we’re totally freaking out and counting down the days until this episode airs! The whirlwind romance first kicked off earlier this season when the two characters shared a fake kiss to try and save Jughead Jones from being murdered by his Stonewall Prep classmates. After they kissed for the camera, to ensure that it looked like Jug was really dead, their respective significant others asked if the two BFFs still had feelings for each other, which was a little suspicious, if you ask us. Now, their unrequited love has finally come to fruition and we’re so here for it, TBH!
As fans know, #Barchie has continuously been teased by the show’s cast. Back in February, KJ admitted that he’s totally here for a Betty and Archie romance!
“I think the idea of Archie and Betty is pretty cool because it’s so iconic,” the actor told Buzzfeed. “I think the whole endgame, like Archie and Betty being endgame, is something really cool. I think the fans would really love that.”
“But I think Betty and Archie are kind of — I mean, I said it in the first episode — they were supposed to be the endgame, so we’ll see what happens,” he dished. “I’m sure there will be many [relationship] swaps in the remainder of Riverdale before it ends, so I would say whether you’re excited for it or not excited for it, just strap in because I’m sure it will be in your favor any day now.”
