'Riverdale' Season 4: Casey Scott's Kevin Keller and Betty will likely rekindle their relationship soon
'Riverdale' Season 1 showed Kevin Keller (Casey Scott) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) as the best of pals and the former was a key part of all the heroes' adventures. However, Season 3 saw him join the farm led by Edgar (Chad Michael Murray) and Evelyn Evernever (Zoé De Grand Maison). This move put Betty and Kevin's friendship on rough waters despite her attempts to pull him out of the cult.
However, it looks the duo will rekindle their friendship in the upcoming season. The synopsis for episode two hinted the two will be back as friends. According to Comicbook, the synopsis reads: "First Day of Senior Year — Archie (KJ Apa) encourages Mad Dog (Eli Goree) to attend Riverdale High and join the football team. Jughead (Cole Sprouse) meets Mr. Chipping (guest star Sam Witwer), who offers him a spot at an elite school called Stonewall Prep."
"Veronica (Camila Mendes) is conflicted when information about her involvement in Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) arrest leaks to the public. Kevin (Casey Cott) applies for a spot on the Blue & Gold to make amends with Betty (Lili Reinhart). And Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) goes head to head with Mr. Honey (guest star Kerr Smith), the school’s new principal Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star."
Also, considering the bigger twist in the form of Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) leaving Riverdale High to join Stonewall Prep, it is understandable that Betty will need a friend. With Archie (KJ Apa) focussing on football, it looks like the time is apt for Kevin to reconcile with Betty and be the much-needed friend. Adding to this is Kevin's instincts. The teen is someone who doesn't crack when the chips are down, and should the town have a new case to be investigated, Kevin can be counted on to be an able team man.
All this while the episode will also see the remaining teens fight their own battles.
What are your thoughts on Kevin and Betty back to being best buddies in Season 4?
'Riverdale' Season 4 will premiere on October 9 on The CW.
