Cole seems to be so onboard with Bughead and he recognizes that they are an helathy communicating couple who will hopefully get through their shit together. He would like them to a a good reference for teenagers of what a good, solid, healthy relationship looks like as it's pretty rare to see on tv shows
Yep, agreed….and, again, there’s enough OTHER STUFF (to which he also alludes) going on (I loved that he mentioned it’s gonna be campy, cause I dig that!), that there’s no need for this sort of fake, stupid, plastic angst for more than half an episode, ultimately resolved in an intelligent, supportive manner (e.g. the birthday party).
Typically, Bughead disagreements are of a “they’re both right and they’re both wrong” dynamic—-which is also typical in real life and refreshing to see onscreen….OUaT sometimes did this with CS (when they didn’t have supreme plastic angst, that was groaningly obvious things would be resolved)—–and it was when they were at their best—particularly with things stemming from their past, etc….
