POLL: Betty and Archie Kiss on ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 – Are You Into This Storyline?

If you tuned into the Riverdale musical episode which adopted the sounds of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, you know that there was a pretty big #Barchie moment that happened halfway throughout the episode and will likely change life as we know it for two of the show’s biggest couples.

The kiss was brought on by a fight between both Betty and Jughead and Archie and Veronica.

Betty and Archie decided to have band practice for The Archies without their significant others and a slow song led them to a moment of weakness.

The moment, while shocking, wasn’t unexpected. The series has been flirting with the idea of a Archie and Betty hook-up since season 1, and plenty of those callbacks were featured in the musical scene as they contemplated their feelings for each other and the idea of “forbidden love.”

When Jughead faked his death and Betty and Archie pretended to date, you could tell that there was some truth to their “fake” relationship.

QUIZ: Which ‘Riverdale’ Villain Are You?

Following the kiss, they lied to both of their significant others and felt terrible about it, but they also couldn’t shake their feelings.

So… what happens next? Well, depending on which side of the shipping wars you fall on, you’re either #TeamArchie or #TeamJughead for Betty.

There’s a huge chunk of the fanbase that supports Archie and Betty since they were a couple in the Archie comics. They’re finally getting what they want — the possibility of exploring a relationship between the girl-and-boy-next-door.

For other fans who stan Jughead, the idea of #Barchie makes them physically ill. And it’s clear why: Betty and Jughead are perfect. They both have a past, a darkness that could easily consume them, and they enjoy solving crimes and mysteries that seem impossible.

Looking at it from the writer’s perspective, it’s an opportunity to play with established character’s in a new way.

Is Archie the right person for Betty, a once innocent girl with a middle-school crush who has since faced inner-demons and fought serial killers, cults, and more?

One could argue that he is since Archie has also dealt with Riverdale’s insanity head-on and with his fists.

Archie seems to finally understand how deep and strong his feelings for Betty are, which has left him conflicted as he harbors a lot of love for Ronnie.

However, both of their feelings seem triggered by nostalgia and a sense of going back to simpler times. Archie is missing his dad while Betty is missing who she was prior to all of Riverdale’s craziness.

How will Archie and Betty move forward? Will they tell the truth? Will they write it off as an innocent mistake?

Will they try to move on? Or will they explore a relationship together?

Things We’re Thankful For At CraveYouTV: 2020 TV Edition



TV Show Things We're Grateful for in 2020

2020 has put a lot in perspective.

While it’s easy to say that it’s been a terrible year, it’s also been a year that has allowed us to reflect on and appreciate all that we have.

It’s the kind of year where we recognize all that we’re thankful for… and really mean it. 

To celebrate the holiday, CraveYouTV has put together a list of some of the TV-related things we’re grateful for this year: 

  • For shows slowly but surely coming back after the COVID hiatus. It was a hard few months without new content, but we’re grateful they’ve found safe ways to resume filming.
  • For McDreamy’s brief return on Grey’s Anatomy. Honestly, that alone could’ve made 2020 somewhat bearable.
  • For the second season of Virgin River coming to bless us this Thanksgiving.
  • For Tayshia Adams taking over the reigns from Clare Crawley and making The Bachelorette more tolerable this season. 
  • For 15 grand years with Sam and Dean on Supernatural. The finale wasn’t to everyone’s liking, but it gave us all closure. It was bittersweet to say the least. 
  • In general, for the ability for shows to have proper endings and finales. It’s always nice when a network lets a show sign off on its own terms. 
  • For the ability to watch older shows! With less airing on TV and streaming, it’s given us a chance to re-watch some oldies but goodies. 
  • For the well-crafted mysteries on The CW’s Nancy Drew
  • For medical shows tackling the real-life COVID pandemic to raise awareness. 
  • For Rio (and Manny Montana) on Good Girls
  • For Emma Corrin’s portrayal of a young and troubled Princess Diana on The Crown. The role came with plenty of criticism, but she took it in stride and gave an outstanding performance. 
  • For Atwater’s powerful stance against racist cops on Chicago PD. He’s one of the best characters to grace our screen. 
  • For Netflix expanding its holiday movie universe and giving fans some hope at a possible holiday movie crossover in the future. We’re looking at you Princess Switch 2!
  • For The Masked Singer putting the fun back in masks! 
  • For a two season renewal of Cobra Kai returning in January 2021. 
  • For The Mandalorian season 2, and Baby Yoda in general! We can’t get enough of the little guy.
  • For the Star Wars Lego Christmas special on Disney+.
  • For a second season of The Boys, a series that continues to intelligently skewer super hero fads while simultaneously reveling in what makes them fun. 
  • For a new season of The Great British Bake Off to heat things up. 
  • For the new trend of movies being released on streaming and in theaters at the same time. 
  • For The Good Place endings its four season run on a beautiful, melancholy note. 
  • For the entire Rose family on Schitt’s Creek. And that they finally got the recognition they deserved during the Golden Globes. 
  • For the 40th season of Survivor, which gave us some of the best gameplay with the greatest players ever!
  • For Netflix’s revival of Money Heist, which let the thrilling adventures of The Professor and his gang continue!
  • In general, for Netflix allowing us to watch TV shows from all over the world and in many different languages! 
  • For Fallon Carrington’s wit, sass, and style! 

We’d love to hear from you! What are you grateful for? What would you add to the list?

And now, we hope you don’t take this personally, but we’re going to take this day off to enjoy a delicious meal and some much-needed R&R with our immediate families. We hope you do the same! 

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at CraveYouTV!

Yes, That Is Queen Amber from ‘A Christmas Prince’ in ‘The Princess Switch: Switched Again’



Everyone loves a good Easter egg. 

It’s always a treat when a show that exists in the same “realm” includes a few nods to its sister show simply to appease audiences. In its last season, Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina had plenty of Riverdale references that delighted fans. 

And The Princess Switch: Switched Again was no exception. 

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, Aldovia’s Queen Amber (Rose McIver), King Richard (Ben Lamb), and their royal baby from Netflix’s A Christmas Prince franchise all made a small cameo at Lady Margaret’s coronation in the Princess Switch sequel.

The brief appearance further entwines Netflix’s holiday movie universe in a way that has fans questioning if it could possibly be teasing a future crossover movie! 

Just imagine Princess of Belgravia, the Queen of Montenaro, and the Queen of Aldovia all working together to save Christmas!

If you think about it, it makes sense. Royal’s from other countries have long formed alliances and often interact for both business and pleasure, so thus, Queen Amber’s appearance during Montenaro’s was completely justified and necessary!

A crossover would be one epic Christmas offering; the only thing missing is Her Majesty Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Queen of Genovia! You know we had to. 

However, some fans were confused as to how all the films were connected since in the first Princess Switch, Margaret and Kevin actually watched A Christmas Prince in the film. 

As one CraveYouTV reader pointed out, maybe they were streaming a “documentary.”

Netflix did give some clarity explaining that The Knight Before Christmas (also starring Vanessa Hudgens), Holiday Calendar, The Christmas Inheritance, and Holiday in the Wild are also entangled in the Christmas Movie Universe. Here’s how: 

“It felt like a natural fit to show one of our other films available on Netflix,” Amanda Phillips Atkins, EVP of production company MPCA that produced the films, shared about the connections. “That one seed of an idea soon turned into fun opportunity to tie the various worlds together with small easter eggs from movie to movie.”

Regardless of whether a crossover is on the horizon, seeing Amber and Richard was a sweet treat for fans of Netflix’s robust Christmas collection during a time we need it the most!
