    "Riverdale" Revealed A Wild Twist About Jughead's Fate And IDK What To Believe Anymore

    I can't trust anyone anymore.

    ๐Ÿšจ Warning: This post contains spoilers! ๐Ÿšจ

    Hi, my name is Kelly and I'm kinda obsessed with Riverdale.

    Nickelodeon

    Riverdale has thrown some pretty wild stuff at us over the years, from Archie getting mauled by a bear to Chad Michael Murray playing a cult leader. But the final scene in last night's mid-season finale TRULY threw me for a curve. And I need to talk about it.

    Paramount

    Season 3 ended on a major cliffhanger where Betty, Archie, and Veronica threw Jughead's beanie into a bonfire.

    The CW

    The scene is supposed to be a flash-forward to spring break senior year.

    Naturally, fans freaked out at the idea that the crew killed Jughead. Because um, WHAT THE HELL does this mean?!

    The CW

    I need answers now, Betty.

    However, a lot of fans also had serious doubts that Riverdale would ACTUALLY kill Jughead off. I, for one, was very reassured by the cast's reveal that Cole Sprouse actually wasn't in that final scene because he didn't want to film in the cold. Everything is fine, I thought! Jughead isn't dead, I insisted!

    The CW

    Same, Cole, same.

    But after last night's cliffhanger ending, I'm rethinking EVERYTHING. Here's what they showed us in the flash-forward:

    The CW

    *screams internally*

    Notice Betty is holding a rock โ€” and in an earlier flashback, we saw younger Betty seemingly kill the family cat with one.

    The CW

    And then Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty, casually tweeted this...

    Love can kill ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’” #Riverdale

    So, hold up โ€” ARE THEY TELLING US BETTY KILLED JUGHEAD??!!

    Nintendo

    I don't know what to believe anymore. I really don't. Is Jughead dead? Is this just all part of his murder mystery book? Did they actually kill his long-lost twin Souphead instead?!

    TikTok

    I'm totally lost. And so is Twitter, apparently:

    im sorry but i refuse to believe betty killed jughead. im not having it

    So they want me to believe FP is really believing two snot nosed prep school brats who locked Jughead in a coffin that his three best friends he's know since kindergarten murdered him? Now I know that shit is fake. #Riverdale

    trying to convince myself jughead isnโ€™t dead even though there are flashbacks and roberto posted a picture of the riverdale register of missing teens body found #Riverdale

    us when we find out that they actually killed off jughead

    We'll have to wait until Riverdale comes back to find out. But in the meantime, what the heck do you think is going on?!
