Lili Reinhart And KJ Apa Weigh In On ~That~ Riverdale Kissing Scene
Their thoughts and prayers are with Bughead shippers worldwide.
Fans of Bughead were left in absolute turmoil at the winter finale of Riverdale series two after Betty Cooper and Archie Andrews shared a spontaneous and - we're gonna go right out and say it - widely unpopular kiss.
While most people were too busy trying to figure out if the Black Hood reveal was legit or not, others were mourning the seeming demise of Bughead and that totally unexpected Barchie ~interaction~.
Let's all get checking out KJ Apa playing an incredible and super revealing round of Never Have I Ever!
In an interview with Glamour, Lili Reinhart confessed that her heart goes out to the people emotionally invested in OTP Bughead. “They see this other coupling that they don’t like coming together,” she pointed out.
As for KJ, he’s equally aware that fans of Betty and Jughead might not be overly “happy” about the kissing scene, but also had some reassuring words about where their (lack of) romance could go from here.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, KJ seemed to suggest that Bughead could come out on tops in the end: "If they're confident Bughead fans, then they've got nothing to worry about,” he teased.
As for how Betty and Archie will interact from this point on, Lili said: “I feel like there’s going to be a freak out, but I think they’re going to try and calm themselves down by saying it wasn’t really romantic and was kind of in the heat of the moment."
Restoring everyone’s faith that Bughead will survive this minor roadbump, Lili said that a “romance” between Betty and Archie isn’t necessarily going to follow on from their random af kiss.
"It’s something that happened really quickly," she added. Thoughts on this over to @MTVUK, please and thanks.
