"Riverdale" Season 2 is about a week away from premiering on The CW and fans are already excited to see what's comes about when several new faces arrive in town. For one, there's Hiram Lodge, Veronica's father who's fresh out of jail. There's also Nick St. Clair, who Veronica was previously involved with when she was in New York. As for Betty, it had been previously hinted that she will go dark once again in the upcoming season, and it may have something to do with Jughead being on the South Side of town.

Jughead's also embraced his South Side identity, and it's something that will inevitably drive a wedge between him and Betty.

Another source of conflict? Vanessa Morgan's Toni Topaz, who's also from the South Side of town and may have her eyes set on Jughead. Meanwhile, a rawer Archie will be featured in the sophomore season, especially now that his father's life hangs in a balance. Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently opened up about how Archie has matured and how it affects his relationship with Betty.

Archie may still like Betty

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly, shedding light on how Archie's newfound maturity affects how he sees Betty. He admitted, "Now that [Archie is] a little bit older, a little bit wiser, is he like, ‘Wow, I let this really good thing get away’? And is it too late?'"

This may mean that he realizes just how good Betty could have been for him, compared to Veronica, who he is currently dating.

Veronica is clearly from an upper-class family that has its dark secrets of its own, but Betty is someone more in Archie's league. They grew up together and are neighbors whose families know each other. Nonetheless, Aguirre-Sacasa shared that while Archie and Veronica are "pretty great together," it doesn't necessarily mean that things will never change.

Will Archie pursue Betty?

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa gave a hint about the future of Archie and Betty, as he told EW, "the heart wants what it wants." Especially now that conflict will arise between Betty and Jughead, it's easy to find comfort in Archie being closer to her than Jughead, who has been shipped across town to the South Side.

Aguirre-Sacasa explained, "For a long time, Archie was what Betty wanted. And I don’t think it’s like a switch being flipped, that that just changes." It would be interesting to see if Archie or Betty would make a move to each other given their current relationship status. Whether or not they do remains to be seen when "Riverdale" season 2 begins on October 13.
