'Riverdale' Season 4: Showrunner Roberto-Aguirre Sacasa hints a Souphead intro in next episode, fans cry foul
For all we know, Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) might not have died at all, and with the whole Souphead theories doing the rounds, fans have reason to believe that it just might be Jug's soup-loving cousin who may have died. Of course, a lot of it doesn't add up, but showrunner Roberto-Aguirre Sacasa's tweet has managed to spark quite the debate.
His tweet read, "A very special episode of Riverdale tomorrow night, watch it with some comfort food. Tomato soup, perhaps," he said and accompanying it was am image that had a quote from Agatha Christie and Jug's date of birth, October 2, 2001, and his date of death as March 18, 2020.
While the post does seem to show Jug's death as indeed real, the tomato soup reference heavily hints at Souphead probably being part of the show. There have been mixed reactions for the tweet with fans hoping Souphead shouldn't appear on the show. "y’all BETTER not make it Souphead I swear to god," a fan tweeted.
However, fans are also refusing to believe that good old Jug is dead. "I still don’t think he is dead", "Calling it now. He’s not dead", "Naah he isn't dead so easily..But waiting for my #barchierainkiss" and "Stop trying to convince us he’s dead, we’ve seen pictures of Cole on set," were some of the tweets from fans.
And here's a fan tweet that shows he's got some catching up to do, "So what happened about the competition that was supposed to happen between Stonewall prep, and Riverdale high? Like you put it out there, but it never actually happened."
Finally, one fan may have just nailed it. "This is starting to get annoying. We know he’s not dead. He’s been on set a lot, and it’s pretty obvious with how Archie & Betty are acting, that something is up. This storyline is interesting, but y’all are trying too hard to act like he’s dead."
'Riverdale' airs Wednesdays 8 pm on The CW.
