Sob, sob. 'Riverdale' premiere saw two couples breaking up. Veronica (Camila Mendes) finds out that Archie (KJ Apa) kissed in the previous season, and the two share a sorrowful conversation after prom and agree to part ways. Toni (Vanessa Morgan) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) decide to part ways too, as Toni's nana doesn't want her to date a Blossom. So all in all, there's much sorrow in everyone's hearts.

Fans are rather heartbroken about the Choni break-up, as they had a soulful story going. In fact, they were the first LGBTQ prom-queens of Riverdale. "I'M SORRY WHAT? DID CHONI JUST BREAK UP???? I'm so done with this show#Riverdale," one fan angrily wrote. Others insisted that if Choni breaks up, Betty and Veronica should get together at least. "If you're going to break up Choni you have to put Beronica together I don't make the rules, the universe craves balance. #Riverdale," another wrote. However, others realized that the two needed to break up because they wanted different things.

"Tbh, Choni needs to break up. They want separate things and it eventually will led to resentment," one noted. "Like if having Choni to breakup wasn’t bad enough they make it like that? So fucking cold, I’m so pissed #Riverdale," another cried. Others say that it makes no sense and it should not have come up now. "This Choni drama makes no sense. Why would this just now come up? #Riverdale," one wrote. "Omg. My poor baby cheryl, like can she just be happy for five seconds. Geez. #Riverdale #choni," another tweeted.  Others said that they were just not 'ready' for this Choni pain. 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

On the other hand, Veronica discovered the song Archie wrote for Betty, except she thinks it's for her and she sings it as well. She also tells Archie that she wants to defer college and be with him for another year. Archie realizes that he doesn't want to be a hindrance in all her dreams and ambition and tells her about his kiss with Betty. The two have a heartbroken separation, indicating that this time they might be done for good.

'Riverdale' airs on CW, Wednesdays at 8 pm.
