Riverdale Actually Needs You to Suppose Betty Killed Jughead

Breaking News

[Warning: The next comprises spoilers for the newest episode of Riverdale, “Chapter 70: The Ides of March.” Learn at your individual danger!]

After watching Riverdale for greater than three seasons, we should always have identified that an episode that included Varchie and Bughead romance, plus a Choni attractive dance quantity, couldn’t include a contented ending. That is simply not how issues work within the homicide capital of the world!

So, sure, our favourite {couples} did have interaction in loads of smooching (and hooking up within the band room earlier than college), however issues turned dangerous within the final a part of the episode when the core 4 — Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), and Archie (KJ Apa) — determined to attend a Stonewall Prep Ides of March get together within the woods. Jughead apparently had a plan to precise revenge on the Stonies who blackmailed him into withdrawing from the college and giving up his Baxter Brothers contract, however we by no means discovered what that plan was as a result of he was discovered useless on the finish of the get together.

The present’s fall finale, which aired all the way in which again in December, revealed this was coming, and that Betty would apparently be accountable, however we refused to imagine the proof then. So what if Betty was holding the rock that had clearly been used to bludgeon her boyfriend? Pics or it did not occur, bro, and we stand by that. Nicely, Wednesday’s episode nonetheless did not present Betty really hitting Jughead with the rock, however it did shed a bit extra mild on the scenario, and our lady nonetheless seems responsible AF.

Earlier on on the get together, Betty had adopted Donna (Sarah Desjardins) into the woods to confront her about blackmailing Jughead, solely she discovered that Donna had finished some investigating into Betty and are available into contact with Evelyn Evernever (Zoe De Grand Maison). It seems that “tangerine” wasn’t the one hypnosis trick Evelyn had programmed into Betty; there’s one other magic phrase that places Betty in a fugue state and able to take out these she loves most. All that dream remedy and stopping her former self from killing her outdated cat Caramel did not free Betty in any respect!

There’s nonetheless some hope that Betty did not really hit Jughead with the rock, although. We noticed Donna reveal there’s one other magic phrase, however we did not really hear her say it. And the episode reduce to the scene we noticed on the finish of the autumn finale, during which Archie was checking Jughead’s pulse and revealing there was none earlier than asking Betty what she did as she seemed shocked to be holding the obvious homicide weapon.

Since we nonetheless do not know what occurred between Donna and Betty’s confrontation and Jughead ending up on the bottom, there’s nonetheless an opportunity that another person hit Jughead. Or, if we need to go deep conspiracy principle mode right here, all of that is a part of Jughead’s elaborate plan to get again at Stonewall prep and ship one of the best story the Baxter Brothers publishers have ever seen. It appears bizarre that Betty invited Veronica and Archie to a Stonewall get together, proper? We’re prepared to wager these two are in on it and it will be the Stonies who’re flabbergasted on the finish of all of this.

It is both that or — gulp — we actually reside within the darkest timeline, during which Betty murdered her boyfriend and we’ll be pressured to undergo subsequent season with out Jughead as Betty takes his place at Yale.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
