Riverdale Roundup: Shipwars, DILFs, Memes, and More

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa regularly likes to tweet the shit out of his show and stir the fanbase. And with his most recent tweet, the shippers needed to make themselves known (moreso than they already do since they already spam pictures unrelated to their pairing).

Even though Bughead literally just fucked (albeit off screen), the dreaded classic love triangle and the idea of Betty/Archie getting together hangs over their heads like some kind of boogeyman. Cue threats to stop watching alongside assurances of their pairing being the true endgame as if this show is above mixing up romantic pairings. And some random Betty/Archie shippers, but as loud as they can be, they're a minority.


TV Guide has ranked the dads of Riverdale as such

5. Hal Cooper (Lochlyn Munro)
4. Fred Andrews (Luke Perry)
3. Tom Keller (Martin Cummins)
2. Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos)
1. F.P. Jones (Skeet Ulrich)

Which is partly bullshit because Hal shouldn't be on these lists, and Fred can go too since it's not the 90s anymore. Also justice for Myles McCoy (Reese Alexander) and Coach Clayton (Colin Lawrence) even if they're just one-episode wonders


As with most of these teen shows, people like to guess who the breakout star will be with a cast this big. And right now, things are looking pretty good for Hayley Law who plays Valerie. If you've been wondering why she doesn't even show up in the background at Riverdale High, it's because she's been pretty busy with other projects. She can currently be seen on Netflix's Altered Carbon and was singled out by Refinery 29 as a breakout character. Their article was RT'd by one of the producers on the show.

She also filmed an indie movie recently that'll be premiering at SXSW which also features Avan Jogia and Riverdale co-star Camila Mendes. And she just signed to another movie starring 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford.

One can only hope that things look up for the other two Pussycats.
