Riverdale season 3 spoilers: Archie and Veronica to breakup? Creator drops major clue | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV
Riverdale season three kicked off with its first episode on Wednesday and, whilst fans eagerly wait for the next instalment, the show’s creator Roberto Aguire-Sacasa has dropped a huge hint for Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa) and girlfriend Veronica Lodge’s (Camila Mendes) future.
Following the closing statements of his murder trial, Archie was sentenced to two years in a juvenile detention centre, leaving Veronica on the outside world.
Yesterday, Roberto posted a photo across his social media accounts of Archie’s first day behind bars – and it doesn’t look promising for the couple.
The image showed Archie, topless, standing in line with fellow inmates against a wall, whilst an officer has opened his mouth, to look inside it with a torchlight.
But it is the caption that captivated fans and sent them into a frenzy.
Roberto paired the image with: “Here we go again. “A” is for Archie, Apa, and…arms. 6 days until the next episode of #Riverdale…and Archie’s first day in juvie.”
Alongside the writing was a series of emojis, a roller coaster, explosion, key, skull, bomb, snake and most importantly a broken heart.
Could Roberto be suggesting Archie’s time behind bars will cause him to break up with Veronica?
Especially now he is an honorary Serpent, he may take a dark turn and feel he is too much of a risk for Veronica, so he could be cruel to be kind to her and break it off.
Fans commented on Roberto’s post and expressed their thoughts on the upcoming storyline.
One said: “#ssavevarchie they love each other so much. Don’t let distance tear them apart!”
“My heart will shatter if you break them up. #Varchie belong together,” another added.
A third commented: “That heartbreaking emoji is worrying me – what’s going to happen to #Varchie?”
It comes after Veronica cut all ties with her father Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos).
After the outcome of the trial, she lashed out at him for framing Archie.
And he revealed Hiram was punishing Veronica for choosing Archie over her own blood.
But in upcoming episodes will fans see Veronica and Archie take down Hiram for good?
Meanwhile, Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick) appeared to have become brainwashed by Edgar, the mysterious cult leader of The Farm.
Betty poured scorn on The Farm and Edgar, whom she described as a heaven’s gate community leader for pregnant runaways.
Her words angered both Cooper (Tiera Skovbye) and Alice, who appeared to have bought into the cult.
Has Betty lost her mother and sister for good?
Riverdale returns Wednesday on The CW and for UK viewers, Thursday on Netflix.
