Riverdale: Flashback episode features Betty Cooper letting her hair down and Archie Andrews going full 90210's Luke Perry
Are you ready for the flashback episode of 'Riverdale'? Ever since we heard that the '90s will be coming alive on the cult-favorite teen drama, we have been looking out for spoilers. The first photo from the much-anticipated throwback episode, titled 'The Midnight Club,' arrived and we got the first glimpse of Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes, and KJ Apa playing their characters' parents in high school.
First out on the Entertainment Weekly, the pictures echo rock 'n' roll vibes featuring Betty Cooper as Alice Cooper in her Southside Serpent days. We already know that this particular episode will take us back to days when the current adult cast members were teens while exploring the similar murder spree of the present in the early '90s.
The pictures are already making our adrenaline rush seeing Betty Cooper letting her hair down and channeling a young Alice Cooper with blonde curls, smokey makeup and a bad-ass attitude, while FP Jones (played by Cole Sprouse) dons a Varsity jacket. I have a hunch that the romance between FP Jones and Alice Cooper in their teens will have us ship them harder than we vouch for Bughead or Varchie.

The same episode will also witness a different hairstyle for our beloved, and now jailed, Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa) as he sheds his iconic red hair for Fred Andrews’ dark brown hue.
Fans are hoping that his '90s vibe will resonate with Luke Perry's Beverly Hills, 90210 days. That will be so much of a catch. Rest of the cast follows suit with a surprising look of their parents, be it with sleek hair or nerdy specs.
The episode pays tribute to 'The Breakfast Club,' with Anthony Michael Hall, who played Brian Johnson in the 1985 teen classic, guest starring as principal Featherhead.
Riverdale‘s ’90s flashback episode is slated to air on November 7, and there's just too many things to look forward to in the little town of Riverdale.
