The source noted that though shippers rooting for Jughead and Betty are ecstatic with the recent turn of events, Riverdale’s main lead, Archie (KJ Apa) is not. Apa said that Archie is not going to get used to the idea that his two best friends are dating.
The actor went on to say that Archie will feel weird about the new set-up that they’d have and at the same time, he will also feel left out. On the other hand, Reinhart sheds more light to the Jughead-Betty romance.
“Jug helps Betty search for Polly, and she helps Jughead with [upcoming] family problems,” said Reinhart. Moreover, the actress said that Jughead and Betty have this beautiful friendship which can lead to something more.
What Happens To The Archie-Betty-Veronica Love Triangle?
TV Guide reported that ever since Riverdale premiered, everyone expected the Archie-Betty-Veronica love triangle to be the main plot of the series. However, after two episodes, the series has veered away from the love triangle arc. However, Apa teased that before Riverdale Season 1 is over, Archie will be leaning towards one of the girls. If this is true then the love triangle is indeed over.

The initial report noted that Reinhart seems to think that the Betty-Archie romantic arc is not happening. The actress went on to say that in her opinion, Archie and Betty are better off as friends. Furthermore, she said that if a person who is close to the opposite sex suddenly gets romantic, according to her words, “it would feel so wrong.”
