Do you ever feel oppressed by the fact that our beloved Jarchie or Beronica (and cheronica and cherosie and reghead and alike..) will never, like ever, happen on the show because of the legacy of the comics? And yet this show does nothing other than tease us.
Then you consider that Bughead is going to happen, and you find yourself thinking “How is that fair to the source material?” “Why is it ok for them to put Jughead in a relationship with anyone and yet they wouldn’t ever do something like making Archie or Betty or Veronica bi?” (I can’t really talk about the other characters as of now)
Then you remember that Archie x Gundy happened and how poorly it was handled and so you lose the little faith in this show you had left.
disclaimer: this is not a critique against the Bughead ship (i’m very happy for all who ship it). this is a critique to the people behind this show who are just trying to manipulate us with the ships.
