Riverdale’s season 5 premiere had it all: prom, masked killer, and the return of Nana Rose! Oh, and did we mention a heartbreaking confession?

Since the season five trailer released in December, Riverdale fans have known Veronica would find out “something happened between Betty and Archie,” but we just didn’t know exactly how she was going to find out the truth. p>
Turns out it was Archie herself who confessed everything to Veronica in the middle of the dance floor at her prom – and only ET got the inside information straight from star KJ Apa about the Varchie vs. The Barchie drama and the time leap tremors are still to come

When it came to Archie’s fraudulent admission, Apa admitted that he was “proud” to see that the truth came from his character rather than from any other Riverdale rumor

“I thought it was great, but I wasn’t really surprised either,” said the 23-year-old actor on the phone to ET last week. “I felt like he would have done that based just on previous things with Veronica that’s what happened. He was usually very honest “

“He really cares about her and, like you said, doesn’t want her to find out through someone else,” he continued, “I think he did the right thing and I was proud”

As for this heartbreaking scene? Apa said it was something that brought him and his co-star, Camila Mendes, closer together as friends. “I think we love these scenes and it feels natural to us on set because we’ve shot these scenes before “, he explained.” We’re so close that I feel like the emotions come pretty quickly and naturally for us “

Since Betty and Archie had a hickey on the screen in season 4, the Riverdale fandom has been divided into those who want Varchie to continue to thrive and those who are ready to see Barchie rise

However, Apa announced that it had avoided potential “backlash” from the mailer by staying away from the online comments “I’m not looking at this,” he said “I wouldn’t know what anyone was saying about it [in social media] so I don’t know “Fair enough!

And while Apa is staying out of romantic preferences, he is concerned about the bromantic repercussions Archie’s path could have if Jughead finds out Betty is kissing his best friend

“Yeah, he really feels like he’s cheated on Jughead. There’s a beautiful scene between Archie and Jughead,” Apa said, referring to a future episode”And I think this scene is going to turn out really well”

As we delve deeper into season five, fans are preparing for the much anticipated time jump that will take our characters seven years into the future.But before we break down what will come after the time jump, Apa is ready to Leaving a term in the past: “Endgame”

“Nobody is married yet! Do you know what I mean?” he laughed “I mean, I know it’s just a show and it’s what you believe in, but ‘Endgame’ is like what? Who do you think this person is going to die with in the end, pretty much right? Me don’t know man we’re gonna see what this season brings because there’s a lot going on this season that might change people’s minds “

Well, when we talk about marriage, we know that after the time jump, Veronica will show up as a married woman, but her husband seems a long way from “Endgame” material Veronica’s husband, Chad, played by Chris Mason, appears as described someone who is jealous, controlling, and not a fan of his wife’s earlier flame (Ugh, he really sounds like Chad like that)

“I have a feeling Archie has seen guys like this before and it doesn’t surprise him at all. He just handles it with so much grace,” Apa replied. “Archie knows exactly what’s going on and what’s the deal with this one Guy’s [Chad] is just like that jealous man who can’t handle the fact that his wife has a better – or healthier – relationship with another man than with him “

“And Chris Mason is such a good actor and we had so much fun doing those scenes,” the star continued “But yeah, I just think that because of the time jump and because Archie is older, he just wants to handle these situations with grace, as opposed to being macho, a type of behavior that wants to fight right away”

Apa recognizes Archie’s career choice for that extra dash of grace and maturity in the future

“Everyone goes their own way after high school and Archie joins the army after graduation,” Apa spilled. “I feel good with Archie I feel like he’s grown a lot over the past few years I think , these are really important years 17-25 I feel like there is still a lot to do in those years and I’m happy to step into these new shoes as Archie I feel like he’s more mature now and making better decisions in terms of his health, and I feel that he is much more of a man now “

When asked if music is still a passion for the future Archie, Apa was delightfully shy with his response, “I don’t know so far this season I don’t think so I think he may have left that behind. Well, I do hope, “he added with a laugh

And while we still have to wait to find out what lies ahead of us in Archie’s love life after the jump in time, Apa admitted that he had a lot of fun in season 5 sharing more scenes with actress Lili Reinhart

“It’s very fresh and new,” he said, “I have a feeling Archie and Betty really didn’t have a chance to really dive into their relationship just because of the other relationships they had with Veronica and Jughead.”

“It’s really funny because I’m so used to shooting scenes with Cami and I was mostly on set with Cami So it’s funny when the roles are reversed, “explained Apa.” And it’s just interesting because it looks like, ‘Oh, that’s what it’s like to work with Lili every day!’ You know? It’s a whole different vibe, it’s amazing and it’s fun because it’s different. It changes my day as a person, spending time with different people and two of my best friends. It’s great “

As for Betty and Jughead after the time jump? Apa was able to give us some vague, giggling teasing

“Betty is actually an FBI agent – I don’t know how she did it, but yeah,” he laughed

“And Jughead is a – I think he’s a writer and a drunk and somewhat homeless person after the time jump I’m exaggerating a bit, but technically I’m right,” he added

Eventually, Apa revealed that while jumping seven years into the future was fun for the cast, don’t expect a completely different show to hit your screens in Season 5

“At the end of the day, it’s still Riverdale’s Time Leap is going to be a catalyst for what brings us all back to Riverdale, and we’re all going to be teachers at Riverdale High,” the actor revealed, “Although the characters now have a certain amount Having maturity, it’s still Riverdale There’s still a lot of drama But at the end of the day it’s not like it has aged the show in any way I don’t feel like this in my opinion “
