Holla! I am new to the riverdale fandom. I binged watched it on Netflix in two days(Healthy?no. Care? also no). It isn't a perfect show but I really enjoyed it. I was instantly drawn to bughead. I am worried, like you said, that the writers will find away to epically fuck it up. I am especially worried b/c it is the CW. Maybe it's just my experience and my issues with the network , but the CW likes it's ridiculously angsty romances. Thoughts?
Hi there, welcome to the fandom!! Yeah, CW shows like their angst and when it comes to romance, most of your ships are going to be in danger in some way at some point no matter what. Like I thought I was safe with one of the less angstier shows that they air (you can probably guess what show I’m talking about). Not so. Still not over it lol. Whether that’s the CW in general or just the individual show’s writers I don’t know. But so far, the Riverdale writers have been pretty spot on with getting things right in the way that is authentic to the storyline and its characters (some people might strongly disagree, but I think it’s been pretty good). I haven’t felt like that about a show and a couple since One Tree Hill and Nathan/Haley. Obviously I’m not comparing the two to Riverdale and Bughead. I wouldn’t dare. But I will say that I felt about the writing on Riverdale the same way I did with OTH. Do I expect some angst for Bughead in season 2? 100%. I would be kind of disappointed if there wasn’t. But I pray that the writers are going to create the angst storyline in a way that helps the characters grow and will make the couple stronger in the end. There are a list of storylines that I think will do that and a list that will do the opposite lol. Call me naive, but I still have faith in these writers and this couple so we’ll just have to see what they come up with I guess haha!
