Doppelgangers Abound On Next’s Week’s ‘Riverdale’

by Rachel Bellwoar

Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) sitting in a tree… Ok, maybe it’s not Betty and Cheryl exactly in the trailer for next week’s Riverdale, but it sure looks like two of their doppelgänger ancestors/cousins(?) were in love (maybe in the ’60s, going by their hair and costuming).

Next week’s promo is honestly the trailer that keeps on giving. While it was already announced yesterday that next week’s episode would be the one to introduce Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) to Rivervale, we also get a glimpse of Victorian Choni (which should be a lot of fun).

The Devil (Oliver Rice) is gone (at least for now) but he did manage to collect some souls this week. Who didn’t know Kevin (Casey Cott) would be the first to sign his soul away without reading the contract? But the bigger surprise may have been how many characters signed their souls away willingly.

It’s a given that Riverdale can pretend these episodes never happened, but you’d think at least within this five-episode event there’d be some continuity. Jughead (Cole Sprouse) told Tabitha (Erinn Westwood) last week that he had almost finished a novella. Now this week he’s back to having no inspiration again. Talk about a character who’s stuck.

Riverdale airs Tuesdays on The CW.
