    Betty And Archie Might Finally Date On "Riverdale," And I Am Freaking Out

    "When I think of where I feel safest and most myself, I think of us in a booth at Pop's."

    🚨 Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead! 🚨

    Hey, Internet! My name is Kelly and I am a huge shipper of Betty Cooper and Archie Andrews from Riverdale! Huge!

    The CW/Nintendo

    Now, we all know Betty is currently dating Jughead and Archie is with Veronica. While Barchie is an iconic aspect of the original comics, we have yet to see these two actually date on the show.

    *cries in lost potential*

    HOWEVER. A flash-forward in this week's episode hinted that a Betty and Archie romance might happen after all!

    good morning remember when barchie

    Which would make sense, considering Jughead has been away at an elite prep school for a while and he and Betty might also be going to different colleges. The show has also been teasing the wild idea that Jughead might not survive this season at all.

    The CW

    I think I speak for pretty much everyone when I say I DO NOT want Jughead to die. But Barchie finally being canon?! I would like to see it!!!

    The CW

    Naturally, Betty and Archie fans are freaking out:

    I CAN’T GET OVER THE MUSIC PLAYING AT THE END AND THE WAY THEY LOOK AT EACHOTHER.

    The way barchie is going to revive riverdale...... a COUPLE!

    when archie entered pop’s it sounded like it was raining but i just thought i was hearing things until i saw the window where it INDEED IS RAINING and in the bts pic betty has a coat around her waist so what if in a future flash forward archie walks betty home and... RAIN KISS

    And look, I don't know if this even means anything romantically. But I can't help but appreciate what a wonderful parallel this scene is to the pilot!

    The CW

    I, for one, am a sucker for this best friends to lovers slow burn. And I really hope we get to see them date because their chemistry is BEAUTIFUL.

    The CW

    A LITTLE PART OF ME ALWAYS THOUGHT....

    I will take my Barchie crumbs where I can get them!
