    "Riverdale" Fans Are Freaking Out Over The Shower Scene In The Latest Episode

    Barchie nation RISE!

    Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead!!

    Riverdale jumped seven years into the future, and it's seriously shaken things up. The kids are all grown up with new careers, new friendships, and new relationships.

    Obvi, the show is still as wild as ever. Last night, something truly wild happened that made me spit out my White Claw: Betty and Archie finally hooked up.

    I don't mean they kissed. I don't mean they "fake dated" or whatever the hell that was in Season 4. I mean they full-on HAD SEX IN THE SHOWER, guys.

    The sound you hear right now is every Barchie shipper's jaw hitting the floor.

    Now, to be clear, Betty and Archie aren't dating. They're just having fun, and they mutually decide to keep their hookups a secret for now. But still. STILL.

    Archie: "Betty what just happened?" Betty: "I don't know, something we've been wanting to do since high school but never got around to?"

    Naturally, Barchie fans are freaking the hell out! Here are some of the best tweets about it:
