Spoilers for 'Riverdale' Season 5 Premiere

Finally, The CW series' most anticipated season premiere is here with 'Chapter Seventy-Seven: Climax' and fans are already sad about Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Archie Andrews aka #Varchie. As we know, the last season saw a brief yet passionate kiss between Archie and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart). Even though Archie couldn't get Betty out of his head, they decided to stop whatever this was because Betty really loves her boyfriend Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse). The premiere episode was bound to bring this relationship drama up considering it's one of the biggest storylines next to the auteur investigation. The first half of the episode sees Veronica find the song that Archie had written for Betty, but of course, she doesn't know that. Thinking it was a cute thing to do, Veronica ends up singing that song for Archie at her Speakeasy and fans were highly unsettled with that. 

"What the f*ck veronica dedicates the song to archie but he wrote the song for betty this is sick #riverdale," wrote one fan. Another added, "IM SO EMBARRASSED FOR VERONICA ARCHIE IS LITERALLY GOING TO LET HER SING THE SONG HE WROTE FOR HER BEST FRIEND IN PUBLIC PLEASE- anyone arguing he isn’t a piece of shit is WRONG #Riverdale." Another added, "I love Archie and Veronica I hate that she's going to find out that that song was for Betty  and he please just make up his mind  #Riverdale"

We can't forget though that there are #Barchie fans who have been wanting to see Archie and Betty together for a while now. But that doesn't seem like it will happen soon. Even though Archie doesn't get into the naval academy and might end up staying in Riverdale, we don't know if Betty and Jughead will break up. During prom, Archie comes clean to Veronica telling her that she shouldn't defer from college and stay with him in Riverdale because he doesn't want to hold her back. Archie then tells Veronica that the song she sang was one that he had written for Betty and that he and Betty had kissed during Hedwig. Veronica is obviously devastated, but when the duo finally talks, they decide quite calmly with abundant tears from Veronica that they would go their separate ways. Interestingly though, Veronica tells Archie that he shouldn't tell Jughead. "No reason to blow them up too", she said. So for now Bughead is safe and Barchie seems to be something of a fantasy for some fans.

"I choose the ones who are soulmates <3 Always and forever Team #Barchie #Riverdale," wrote one fan. Another added, "Lmao I type feel bad for Veronica but barchie endgame #Riverdale"
