(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s episode of “Riverdale”)
“Riverdale” returned from it’s winter hiatus Wednesday, and things got steamy — fast.
The “core four”– Betty (Lilli Reinhart), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) — took a weekend getaway to a cabin in the woods, and some secrets that had been boiling for a while bubbled over during the friends’ trip.
The four convene in the cabin’s hot tub, where it is revealed — thanks to Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) — that Archie and Betty kissed when they were all on a break from each other (reminder: Betty + Jughead, Veronica + Archie). Veronica takes matters into her own hands to make things even and gives Jughead a particularly long smooch on the lips.
“Jughead, don’t freak out, just trust me,” she said right before grabbing his head and leaning in for the smooch, as Betty and Archie awkwardly look on. Afterward, Ronnie looks pretty satisfied with herself.
Suffice to say, fans were not impressed with the #Vughead kiss.
“That kiss was way too long,” one fan on Twitter said.
“Umm, Well, #jeronica definitely kissed longer than #Barchie did,” said another.

veronica and jughead kissing was quite possibly the most cringe-worthy scene in the entire show. #Riverdale

When you were low key rooting for Jughead and Archie to kiss even though we knew they wouldn’t #Riverdale
