Watch out, spoilers! The following paragraphs reveal intrigue elements from Season 4 of Riverdale. If you don’t want to know anything, don’t read the following.
During the musical episode of season 4 of Riverdale, based on the show Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a scene particularly shocked fans on social networks: a kiss exchanged between Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie (KJ Apa) . If this is not the first time for the two characters, it is worth remembering that the two are in a relationship, the first with Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and the second with Veronica (Camila Mendes). This deception, yet inevitable in the series and which should be an important plot element in the last episodes of season 4 of Riverdale, was very badly received by the fans who attacked the interpreter of Betty on his Twitter account.
The latter replied to its detractors with this message: “You don’t have to agree with Betty’s choices but she’s a young woman. And she tries to understand who she is, like anyone in this world. And sometimes people make bad things”. While some fans don’t understand Lili Reinhart’s defense at all and find it unfortunate that Betty and Archie are coming to this point after two futile arguments with their respective partners, others, on the contrary, have long hoped that this moment will come. Since Betty and Archie have been neighbors and have known each other for a long time, there has always been a certain ambiguity between the two. And this sexual tension between Betty and Archie should be explored in the next episodes of season 4, evidenced by the teaser of episode 18 which announces a rapprochement between the two.
