Forget Barchie and Bughead, Betty and Veronica should be the last game in ‘Riverdale’

There are only six episodes left RiverdaleThe seventh and final season of the season – and while we have a desire to find out if we ever return to the current schedule of the show, and if the events of this season are true, the biggest question in our minds. This is true: who will go with whom? Romance has always been a big part Riverdale, and it’s probably fair to say that the shippers of the various pairs make up a significant portion of the show’s fandom. But the last couple, at this point, is anyone’s guess. Cheryl Flowers (Madelaine Petsch) and Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan), aka Choni, seems like a solid bet, but for Archie’s main four (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), and Jughead (Cole Sprouse), we are at a loss.

The series has long been ruled by the powerful ship of Barchie (Betty and Archie), Varchie (Veronica and Archie), and Bughead (Betty and Jughead), but this season teased new connections, such as Veronica and Jughead and Betty and Reggie. (Charles Melton). But maybe it’s a subtle trick to distract from the real endgame: Betty and Veronica, or as they’re better known by fans, Beronica. In recent episodes, the arc between the two girls was established, established that they – or at least the 1950s, old, regressed, amnesiac version of themselves – have feelings for each other and swearing Archie for good. There are so many options that we are spoiled for choice, but we hope that out of all the possibilities, Beronica is the one stuck. After everything they’ve been through, Betty and Veronica deserve their happily ever after, and no one fits them better than they do with each other.

Beronica is one of the best – and most important – ‘Riverdale’ Dynamics

The dynamic between “good girl” Betty and “bad girl” Veronica is the heart and soul of Forever. Riverdale. The two persistently reject the notion that they shouldn’t get along, and Archie will likely get in the way of their friendship; They support each other unconditionally and value their relationship. You are above everything. Yes, everyone is Riverdale made terrible and horrible decisions towards each other at some point; Betty and Veronica are definitely paranoid, but they still have an unbreakable bond and true love between them.

This evolution from friendship to romance feels like a natural progression, and actresses Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes — who have been steadily selling material in Riverdale, no matter how funny — has some of the best chemistry in the cast. Their scenes are forever highlights, but in the following seasons, many people feel that the collaboration between Beronica has been neglected, developed, and underutilized. We’re loving how much they’re sharing the screen together in Season 7, especially now that the series is starting to take their relationship seriously.

A Endgame Beronica is a feminist twist that breaks predictable tropes

Let’s be real: love triangles haven’t been this compelling in about ten years, especially when two girls compete for the affections of one guy. After seeing Veronica and Betty bully each other for six seasons, it will be great to see them find love with each other. As the latest episode of the show, Archie seems to focus on self-discovery, so it is appropriate to close his storyline with him still single, but found himself in the process. After entertaining Beronica for the first time, it would feel a little regressive for the series to backtrack and conclude with Archie “choosing” one of the two girls, breaking the heart of the other. A Beronica endgame is rather surprising and memorable for all the right reasons.

Sexuality and sexual liberation are major themes in season 7’s Riverdale, so it makes sense that Betty and Veronica are just now beginning to explore their queerness. Also, in a show known for being random, illogical, and out of place, this could be one of those “plot twists.” There’s no reason why Cheryl, Toni, and Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) must be the main LGBTQIA+ character only. As for Jughead, he has limited romantic relationships this season, so it will be interesting to see that Riverdale went down the path of the comics, which confirmed the character as asexual in 2016. Previously, he was in a relationship with Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook), who has been MIA for most of this season.

Sorry, shippers — Barchie, Varchie, and Bughead are boring right now

Barchie, Varchie, and Bughead still have huge fanbases, so it’s impossible for the show to please everyone — but they’ve long been canon, and to be honest, all three duos feel tired. Riverdale has a habit of going in circles with its romance, and we feel we’ve seen enough of Barchie’s will-they-won’t-they and Varchie and Bughead’s on-off-off-regain sagas for a lifetime. Beronica’s endgame is sure to please viewers who have been rooting for them since their flirty friendship at the beginning of the season, which began when they shared a kiss during a routine cheerleading competition in the show’s tryouts. The ship feels fun and new, which is in the spirit of the series constantly trying different things and never taking itself too seriously.

know Riverdale, a lot could happen between now and the finale, and we find it hard to believe that they’ve finished exploring all possible romantic pairings. You can tell us that the endgame ship is Reggie and Archie or the Betty, Veronica, and Jughead trouple, and we won’t be fazed. Maybe this whole season is just a big dream, and nothing will matter in the end; Who can say if we’ll ever see our hero’s contemporaries again? Deep down, we know the best way to be happy Riverdale is to abandon all transport attachments and buckle up for a silly, bizarre ride. But despite it all, we are embarrassed to invest in these characters, especially Betty and Veronica, and we can not think of an ending that suits them more than each other.
