Okay, but can we please talk about how in love Betty and Jughead are with each other?! It’s like they live in their own little world - actually, more like they are each other’s world. Both of them chose each other over their families. Betty defied her mother to protect Jughead and support him because of how much she believes in him. And Jughead who has been so desperate to get all of his family back together was willing to give up on that dream to stay with Betty.
In this episode they both admitted they were in love. Betty may have actually used the word, but Jughead showed Betty he loved her by saying he was going to stay for her.
They really are the Romeo and Juliet of Riverdale. And what cemented the Romeo and Juliet aspect of their relationship, for me, was the scene where Alice said she was happy Betty was done with the Jones family.
If the writers even dare to break them up just to put her with Archie I will stop watching! This show is so good because Bughead is the heart of it.
Lastly, the scene where Jughead stares longingly at Betty while he’s in FP’s truck is probably one of the best moments of the entire season. No words are needed - just the terrified look on his face is enough to show us that the most important part of his life is Betty and he can’t let her go. These two are killing me. 😩
