(The CW)

Spoiler alert for Season 4 Episode 15: 'Chapter Seventy-Two: To Die For'

This week's episode may have been focused on the revival of Jughead Jones and although that should have been the centre of attention, considering the insane flashforwards this season, it wasn't. Instead, the steamy scenes between Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) may have shifted eyes off Jughead and onto a possible Barchie reunion? Who knows, but the fans sure want it.

"Don't give me Barchie just to take it away from me #Riverdale," tweeted one fan.


While the Betty-Archie romance is definitely staged to make sure her plan to take down the Stonewall preps goes smoothly, fans suspect that one scene may have somewhat been the real deal.

"The kiss may have been staged, the bunker scene was definitely staged but this scene? This scene was real asf. Barchie is rising. (For real this time) #Riverdale" tweeted a fan referring to the scene where the duo exchange steamy texts.

Another fan remembered, "Barchie's second kiss  #Riverdale #BarchieKiss," with the first being when the duo took down Betty's father, the Black Hood. Some fans who had stopped watching the show, and considering coming back to the mysteries of the murder capital of the world.


"People who watch Riverdale, is it time for me to start watching again because of Barchie?! #barchie #riverdale," tweeted another fan.

With the episode revealing the Jughead is still alive, some fans don't seem to care. "I hate to say it but after watching tonight’s episode I’m convinced they’ll make barchie happen next season even though I think #Bughead will be endgame# #Riverdale," tweeted a fan. Not to mention #Barchie and #Barchierising has taken over #Riverdale twitter.

We're not sure where the show is going with this storyline, but with Jughead alive and Veronica's fiery attitude, we don't think Barchie can happen this season right? Although it's 'Riverdale' and they somehow manage to beat all expectations and completely twist plotlines. So we wait and watch.

'Riverdale' airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm EST on The CW.
