In preparation for episode 8, I re watched/binge watched Riverdale for the first time while my best friend watched it for the first time. I didn’t tell her anything that will happen because I didn’t want to influence who she shipped. So when the bughead kiss happened she was so excited and wanted to watch the kiss all over again. I was so happy like a proud parent. I asked her if it felt too rushed but she said she saw all the signs leading up to it and I was 😀😀😊😊 so excited she figured it out all on her own!!!!!
