WARNING: Some steamy, steamy spoilers for tonight’s episode of “Riverdale” await below.
Star actress Camila Mendes sat down with Harper’s Bazaar to break down Wednesday’s mind-blowing episode.
The show returned following a one-month hiatus to see Betty and Jughead (affectionately known as Bughead), and Archie and Veronica head to a “romantic getaway” at the Lodge family lake house.
Obviously, the night ended in murder — but that will likely be the last thing on fans’ minds. Veronica engaged in a steamy hot tub kiss with Jughead in a scene that is sure to fracture the Twitterverse.
“I read that, and I was like, ‘Oh, God, I’m not even gonna look at my Twitter that day,” Mendes laughed. “I’m just going to turn it off.'”
The scene was teased last week by show-runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
“The show does a good job of riling up the fans,” Mendes said of “Riverdale” and its couples. “That is kind of the charm of our show.”
Adding, “It just shows how passionate the fans are, and how firmly they believe in their ship.”
“She’s trying to stay one foot in the world of good and one foot in the world of evil so that she can find a middle ground and try to constantly find compromise,” she said of Veronica’s internal conflict.
Continuing, “But the more she plays with that, the deeper she gets into it, and she gets more sucked into the family business. And now she’s kind of stuck—there’s no getting out of it.”
“Riverdale” premiered last year and quickly took the Internet by storm. Check out a teaser for next week’s episode below.
