To the joy of all the Barchie fans though, he and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) are finally pursuing their relationship, though as Betty is currently living with her family, they can only be intimate in showers and cars.
The Cooper household isn’t in its best shape either as Betty a failed FBI trainee, was kidnapped and is not dealing with the disappearance of her little sister Polly (Tiera Skovbye) as their mum Alice (Mädchen Amick) takes care of her twins.
As Betty is investigating the new serial-killer who might have made Polly its latest victim, Archie is dealing with his own set of drama reigniting his old rivalry with Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos), who had his allies from the rival high-school torch up Riverdale High.
Archie’s plan to get back at Hiram is to start up the football team again, but Hiram isn’t having it and had Archie’s house burnt down too.
Riverdale airs new episodes weekly on The CW on Wednesday and the following Thursday on Netflix
