Sigh. B*rchies are being a#$holes in Alex' blog. I'm so tired.
I noticed, Kieran doesn’t seem to be in van for the past couple of weeks , so I guess Sabrina is only have a cameo in episode 4?
This is weird considering the People who are interested in those especial 5 eps are Sabrina fans
Like who do they think is interested to watch their stupid attempt at going supernatural?
I love that we’re all hoping that 5B is an AU/aftermath of a curse/maple mushroom fever dream/etc. because we’re looking for a way to explain the OOC madness we saw.
Because the alternative is shit writing.
Ted’s iconic scene line and the flashback outfits makes me think… Maybe Married Life/Life With Archie caused by a spell and they show the “death of Archie” story arc. Archie dies and wakes up in the mines in 517…
My biggest mistake is to share my AU theory with the whole fandom. BAs is unable to question any actions Archie, Betty and the writers do when it comes to their ship. That is, they are really not worried about the emotional content of this couple. They are not worried about the plot and narrative paths. They don't actually watch the show. All they do is read the interviews, take them literally, and watch Betty and Archie fuck. That's all.
"RAS said it was canon". Well, yes, it could be canon. Canon for season 5.
because, historically, they haven't been very important to the overall plot. we heard about the voicemail in 5x05, heard it in 5x11, and then finally saw it in 5x14.
which is just one example of one thing they were tight lipped about that actually (outside of the last 2 episodes) impacted the plot between betty and jughead in the whole of season 5.
i had to actually rewatch some of them to refresh my memories but there were: deleted scenes, misleading scene cuts, things that were contained in one episode made to look like a much bigger deal, and stuff put together just to make it look violent, sexy, or emotional. as is the job of any promo.
in the one for s4, they made it seem like they were searching for jughead while he was buried alive and as we know now, that wasn't at all what it was about. s6's trailer seems less about a storyline (since they're not sharing what's going on because of the event/curse and it's only for 5 episodes) and more about getting you to go, "wtf was that?" and tuning in just to see what's going on. especially when you consider the almost hail mary in your face promo of bringing in sabrina.
which, to be fair, makes sense when you have little to tease with and a lot to try and sell.
So I am back on the theory train today and I’ve been thinking about the recent trailer for the five episode event and also Abigail’s curse in 5x19. I have come up with a theory around that curse, it does get a little confusing in places but bear with me, I think it all makes sense in the end.
At the moment Barchie seem to have a thing about bombs, the first being the one under Archie’s bed that interrupted their reunion and now the baby bomb that was dropped in the trailer. Here’s the thing though I think that line might have a significance in what’s coming up in season 6 and the curse that was put on their ancestors.
One of the things that I think is really significant is that whilst Abigail is Cheryl’s ancestor she is also Betty’s ancestor. I actually made a blossom family tree to try and make myself a little clearer here:
When you stop to think about it technically Betty has as much Blossom blood as Cheryl does, she is as much Abigail’s ancestor as Cheryl is. Both of their great grandfather’s were Blossoms, they were brothers. Despite having different surnames Cheryl and Betty still share an equal amount of blossom blood. Speaking of Betty’s surname and identity as a Cooper another thing I saw talked about alot after the season 5 finale was that it didn’t make sense that Beatrice Cooper was Betty’s ancestor because her family were Blossoms until her great grandpappy changed their family name to Cooper. So we get two versions of this story, the first is in season 1 when Hal says that Great Grandpappy Blossom murdered Great Grandpappy Cooper who was his brother, after this the family took a new name, Cooper. The second time we hear the story it is a retcon in Season 2 ep 21 when Hal confesses that actually it was Great Grandpappy Copper who killed Great Grandpappy Blossom but again says the line ‘then took on the Cooper name’. I actually have a theory on this. We can assume that Grandpappy Cooper was married at the time, so to me if you were in a situation where you were having to change your name to reinvent yourself it would be better to take a name that you are at least some what familiar with and that the people around you are familiar with. I feel like it would make sense for him to take his wife’s maiden name. That way if anyone asks any questions they can claim to be relatives of the Cooper family and in some way its the truth, Betty’s great grandmother, being an actual Cooper, could answer any questions that might come up about the Coopers accurately helping maintain their cover. By making Betty’s great grandma a true Cooper and a descendant of Beatrice Cooper it makes Betty having Blossom blood and a Cooper ancestor make sense within the canon of the show and the story of the current Coopers being a branch of Blossoms.
Ok so how is this relevant to Abigail’s curse? Well I am going to assume that Abigail designed the curse to not effect her own descendants, those of her own blood. Therefore the magic within the curse may get confused when it comes to Betty because she has both the blood of one of those cursed and of the one doing the curse. Not to mention as I mentioned before Betty is as much a Blossom bloodline wise as Cheryl and if Cheryl has witches blood due to her connection with Abigail then technically so too does Betty. My theory that whilst her having Blossom blood won’t break the curse completely maybe it will have less of an effect on her because of it.
Then we have Polly and Jason’s children. Technically Juniper and Dagwood due to the accidental incest have more Blossom blood then anyone else alive in Riverdale now. Like Cheryl and Betty that also means that technically they have witches blood too. On top of that like Betty they are both, through their mother also related to Beatrice Cooper. Again I think this will mean the curse will have less of an effect on them.
Which brings me to the barchie baby. Now I am not sure if they are actually going to commit to this and have Betty become pregnant with Archie’s child. I have seen alot of people saying it is too soon, but we also have to bear in mind a few things. Firstly we don’t know when exactly this plotline happens, it could be in the first episode or it could be in the fifth. We also don’t know how much time has passed between the season 5 finale and 6x01 or even how much time will pass across the five episode event. Barchie could be months into their relationship by the time they have this conversation. So whilst it might be sudden for us it might not be for them. Also they have just gone through that whole experience with the bomb which might make them feel like life is short and make them think about the things they want from their lives. Or maybe they just want to have a baby which is fine too. I mean they are two consenting adults and its up to them when they decide they are ready to have a child. But all of that aside if they do go the baby route I actually think this could be the key to breaking Abigail’s curse. Like I said I think Betty, Juniper and Dagwood having the blood of both the cursed and the curse caster is going to ‘confuse’ the curse if that makes any sense. But if Barchie have a baby then that baby will have Blossom, Cooper and Andrews blood. Cue second family tree I made in an attempt to make this actually make some kind of sense, so purple is blossom blood, pink is cooper blood, blue is Andrews blood and green any unrelated to the curse bloodlines from spouses. Those with more than one colour show the colours of all the bloodlines they have:
I think the fact that there are quite a few people in Riverdale with ‘tainted’ or ‘diluted’ blood will weaken curse then if Barchie become pregnant I think the fact that there will be a living being, even an unborn one, in Riverdale that has Blossom blood along with not one but two of the cursed families will just break the curse.
Of course the other option is I’ve just overthought this all but hey I had fun whilst thinking too much into it. But hopefully it makes some kind of sense, it does in my brain lol.
Just a few thoughts because of all the horror stories ideas and just because I happened to watch an episode of Sabrina recently that might fit into what they're doing. Episode 5 of Sabrina involves a dream demon that tormented people in their dreams by making them face their fears. All of these fears were more psychological (the fear of loosing a sister, someone finding out who you are and hating you for it). Now I don't think they're doing a dream demon, but I'm wondering about the psychological fear factor. Jughead's fear is that he can no longer write (which would tie into the Shining). I think Betty's fear is to become that "perfect wife" her mother tried to be in the first season (didn't she even say her family was Stepford?). Veronica could see herself turning into her father and so on. Whatever is going on is changing things to make these fears a reality.
So I saw something interesting on Instagram, maybe it has been on here too but have not seen it yet.
But they were saying what if Cheryl’s curse cause Betty, Archie, And Jughead to be kind of processed by the spirits of they past ancestors who burned Chery’s ancestor at the stake. And this is what is causing them to act OOC like wanting to have babies and stuff.
probably too clever for these writers but it was interesting.
What if every episode of the five ep special is based on different horror movies?!
-We know they are doing something like Midsommar
-People suspect Jughead’s storyline has something to do with the shinning
- Some people said Betty’s pregnancy can be related to Rosemary’s baby.
